Up next in the galleries of Seibertron, we have a couple of Bumblebees and these guys came here to chew bubblegum and hunt Predacons...and they are all out of bubblegum. From Takara Tomy comes Transformers Go! Hunter Bumblebee while Nova Blast Bumblebee hails from Target's exclusive Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising subline. Both of these figures are redecos of the original Beast Hunters Bumblebee.

So...Hunter BB is just the Hasbro figure w/o the silver paint on the hood vents. Wow, Takara, I'm impressed......NOT!

Seriously now Bumblebee, go away. :BANG_HEAD:

That said, the hunter mold does look good. Shame a new Decepticon character and deco wasn't made for it instead. That would work. :CON:

It also is a darker shade of yellow, doesn't have the red swirls in his yellow plastic like the Hasbro version, and has sparkly black paint on his spoiler instead of a flat black paint. It's a minor variant but a variant nonetheless. Predaking and Hunter Bumblebee have the most minor differences of the entire Go! line.

The missiles also look a ta brighter, as do the headlights.

But, yeah, Hunter Bumblebee's differences are so subtle as to be virtually unnoticeable by the naked eye.

At least Dragotron has the virtue of possibly being a different character from Predaking. ;)

Or perhaps the original guy, since Predaking is a clone after all.

I think I've finally figured out why Wheeljack's blue. I'm guessing he's supposed to be an homage to his Shattered Glass self.

He's an homage to G1 Slicer, who was used as a template for SG Wheeljack. As such, BotCon 2010 Slice (made from the G1 Wheeljack homaging Energon Downshift) was made to double as both:

Image

G1 Slice on the left, BotCon 2010 Decepticon Slice on the right.

As for the rest: Bumblebee is Goldbug, Starscream is Skywarp, and Knock Out references the G1 Constructicons, the closest thing the G1 'Cons had for medics (especially Hook).

Dark Energon Wheeljack and Shattered Glass Wheeljack are both homages to Action Master Slicer, a Decepticon repaint of Action Master Wheeljack.

Which reminds me that I need to get around to finishing up the European Action Master exclusives at some point.

Seibertron.com is proud to present yet another installation of its world famous and viewed galleries. This time, it's time to scale down and take a look at Takara's blend of the BotShots and Transformers Go! lines: check out below the galleries for the Go! BeCool Samurai Kenzan, Ganoh and Jinbu! Each one is also made up of two previously released figures: Jinbu has the vehicle mode of Starscream but the head and chest from Powerglide; Kenzan uses the Barricade/Prowl mold but uses the hood/bumper from Mirage; Ganoh uses the vehicle mode of Sentinel Prime but the head and chest from Brawl. Additional Transformers Go! galleries are on their way, so make sure you check back throughout this week for more.

It was fun hopping back on the Bot Shots bandwagon for these little guys. I forgot how much fun they were (and how easy it is to plow through their galleries). Bummer that they're a thing of the past now. Lots of potential with that line.

I dunno why, but always liked when "one-off" characters appear in side lines like these. I guess in a weird way it makes them seem more valid as TF characters, like they belong to ALL Transformer lines instead of just their original, obscure Japan-only miniseries. If that makes any sense.
... or maybe it's just "hey I don't have to pay that much to get the new character!"

In a similar vein I kinda hope Windblade gets a second toy somewhere. A Kreon or Construct-Bot or whatever.

We've seen them in their BotShot (or BeCool, rather) forms, but it's now time to take a look at the full sized samurai team! Seibertron.com is proud to present three new installments in its highly detailed galleries, featuring the Takara Transformers Go! Swordbot Samurai Team Kenzan, Ganoh and Jinbu, and their Micron partners! Click on any of the images below to view the whole gallery, each of which includes the combined form out of the three variations featuring the 'top' robot.

Yes and no. I liked the individual robots more than I thought I would and the odd upper leg/lower torso areas didn't bother me quite as much once I had them in hand. Prior to owning them, I thought the pay off with these would be the combined modes which I found to be very disappointing. They stay together fairly well, but the limited poseability and frustrating combined mode transformations with Japanese instructions made the combined modes not enjoyable to me. The inability to turn the heads of the combined mode also was a big disappointment (though I knew this going in).

While I didn't put batteries in my figures, I was very impressed by the electronics of these guys from the YouTube videos that I watched. Very elaborate. Almost too much so for what these figures were.

They're some of my least favorite figures from the Transformers line. I would love to know more about the origins of these toys. As we've discussed on the Seibertron.com podcast, it seems like these figures were intended for another transforming toy line such as Brave. It is very obvious that a designer spent a crazy amount of time working on these but unfortunately they just didn't turn out that great in the end.

Ultimately, I'm just bummed that this is the best that they can come up with for Combiners. I don't understand why Combiners are such a difficult concept for Hasbro and Takara these days. Pretty much everything 1992 and on has been a disappointment for combiners.

I feel it should be pointed out that, in the show at least, the combined weapon made by Kenzan's swords, Jinbu's longsword, and Ganoh's spear is only used by GoGanoh. GoKenzan uses Kenzan's two swords while GoJinbu uses Jinbu's longsword.

I feel it should be pointed out that that's not what the instructions show. They show all 3 using the combined weapon. I added Kenzan's swords to the combined weapon just because I thought it looked cool.

Interesting. Guess the show makers decided to do their own thing.

Now I wonder why they chose GoGanoh to be the lucky one of the three who got the special weapon. :-?

Maybe because Ganoh and GoGanoh are, in my opinion, the best of all of these figures. :D

Ganoh has the most traditional looking robot mode with the upper legs, kind of reminds me of a Bulkhead type figure. GoGanoh is also probably one of the best of the combiners as well.

Go Ganouh is the best of the 3 for look, except the spindly legs. For a really awesome combiner you need Ganoh as the top and the legs :D

How was GoGanoh for posing leg wise? The articulation is there, but I can't get him to stand at all...the joints in Jinbu are just so loose on mine he falls over due to the legs just turning and sprawling all over the place :-( Also, non of my combined modes can hold the weight of the shield because the arm joints are loose.

Also, the instructions show kenzan's weapons as part of the combined weapon. Although it feels quite clumsy. Honestly I wish Kenzan's swords were a lot bigger, too.

Ah, Officer Barbrady, Jimbo, and Hot Spice. We meet again.

The galleries seem to do them more justice than every other time I've seen them. Their combined modes still look disproportional.

Posted by Emerje on March 5th, 2014 @ 11:14pm CST
The line is hit or miss, but I really like it as a whole. Of the seven Autobots I'd probably put Ganoh as #1, but Optimus Exprime would be a close #2 (no potty jokes, please :P). His train and bot modes are good, and if you ignore the instructions you can make a very good dragon mode out of him. The bottom of the list would be Sensuimaru. His bot mode is the worst (which is really saying something), his shark mode is like a sub shaped like a shard rather than a robot shark (the other two aren't a tank shaped like a lion or a jet shaped like a bird), and GoSensui has really weird forearms.

If I were to rank them It's probably be:

1) Ganoh
2) Optimus Exprime
3) Hishoumaru
4) Gekisoumaru
5) Kenzan
6) Jinbu
7) Sensuimaru

All of the Predacons are awesome, though.

OK OK, seriously though this set looks garbagio. You can't just slap an Optimus head on any robot body and call it OP... or can you? They should retool this and make it a Power Ranger set. The colors and combine form look all matches PR criterion already.

Except for the legal issues that would prevent that from happening. Namely that this is a TakaraTomy creation and Power Rangers is owned by Bandai, a completely diffferent and rival company. Someone would likely sue the other if they tried to do that.

ABOMINATION!!!!!!

I just wanted to say that. Not throwing shade on this set, I want to like it but I just don't at this time. Nice concept though.

We've been seeing reports of these figures showing everywhere but in mainland US - Seibertron was lucky enough to get his photographer's hands on them. He has provided us with yet another astonishing set of galleries. Feast your eyes below on the later wave of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commanders: Unicron Megatron, Bludgeon and Ultra Magnus. Unicron Megatron is a repaint of the original Transformers Prime Cyberverse mold. Ultra Magnus is retooled from the Optimus Prime mold. Bludgeon is a repaint and retool of the Shockwave mold. Click on any of the images for the full gallery.

I remember when retools were unheard of in Cyberverse. None of the Movie ones had any of that (save adding ports for weapons). UM and Bludgeon look great!
... though I kinda wish Bludgeon was based on BM Scavenger instead. He looks closer to the Vehicon as it is.

I saw Bludgeon in a Target in Canada. But I'm pretty sure he was approaching 12 bucks. He was at least over 10 bucks. Prices seemed higher in Canada for a long time, but it seems like America is catching up in many ways. On the other hand everything sounds at least a bit more expensive here, without fault. At any rate Bludgeon despite being cool was too expensive
