Not long after the last night's Goldbug gallery, Seibertron.com is proud to present yet more galleries of Takara Generations Deluxe figures, and this time, it's double trouble. Take a look below at the awkwardly named Megatronus vs Orion Pax two-pack, all their shinyness - click on any of the images for the full gallery, and check out their Hasbro counterparts here for Orion, and here for Megatron!

#4 - Skids ... ball joint for upper left leg snapped right off his crotch when I tried popping off the leg to swap the upper leg parts that are misassembled from the factory.

That's four out of 14 deluxe class Generations figures that I've had problems with. Very distressing (pun intended)!!!


Wow the exact same thing happened to me on the same leg on the same ball joint when I was trying to fix the misassembly issue.... was a bitch to find another one. ended up paying 20 bucks for him at a comic book shop.

As we continue in the Seibertron.com quest to have the best toy galleries around, we are now proud to present the latest produce of the unstoppable skills of Ryan: Generations Voyager Rhinox and Doubledealer! The latter is a repaint and remold of triple changer, triple faced Blitzwing, with a new blue colour scheme and head; Rhinox, on the other hand, is an entirely new mold, upgrading his Beast Wars look on a design by Emiliano Santalucia. Click on any of the images below for the full gallery!

[color=deeppink]Doubledealer is a big waste of that mold. Flywheels was perfect for it. Even that Megatron custom someone did with it was a better use.

Looks like Powermasters are going to be one line that Hasbro won't homage during the Generations line... I wonder if Brainstorm is going to be a proper headmaster?[/color]

I'd so get Rhinox IF someone hadn't speculated a Torca retool out of him. I'm not really crazy about getting doubles of Voyager molds, and for me Fuzors > anything.

Darn Sandstorm for making ridiculous retools a possibility. *shakes fist*

The Torca thing is more of a deep fandom desire rather than anything concrete. I'd say go for the mold now if you want it, rather than waiting for something that may not happen later.

I agree, and I think Springer with a new head might work OK for Battletrap, but the Blitzwing mold is a dead ringer for Flywheels.

I doubt it. Hasbro doesn't want kids to lose the heads of Transformers! (though I don't know what difference it makes with all of the ball jointed heads that are missing in collections I buy).

I agree! Plus this mold was designed for Rhinox!

Nice galleries Ryan, have you by chance tried the Silver Sharpie Technique to improve Rhinox's guns?

I really really thought about it but decided against it since I know the Takara one will have paint apps and I'd like to show off the differences between the two molds. Would love to see what it looks like if someone else does it.

Also, wasn't Sandstorm the original design, and Springer the retool? :-?

(It's still a ridiculous one, but removing parts rather than adding them.)

Seibertron.com is proud to present not one, not two not three but four new Generations galleries! The Deluxes are here to help you in your recreations of the events in Dark Cybertron, if so you wished: Waspinator, Skids, Dreadwing and Goldfire. The first two are entirely new molds, while the latter are retooling and repaints of previous Generations Deluxes Megatron and Bumblebee; we've also made sure to show them off next to previous incarnations of the characters! Click on any of the images below for the full galleries.


Generations Waspinator






Generations Skids






Generations Dreadwing






Generations Goldfire

Great galleries as always, Seibertron! (Seriously, I think you could sell me the ugliest piece of plastic crud out there.  )

I have to ask a question: did you have trouble with Skids falling over backwards? I don't know if I have him mis-transformed or something, but he seemed very back heavy. Some of your pics had him leaning quite a bit forward, but I didn't know if that was to get his guns all lined up or if you also had stability issues. With feet as big as Skids has, I'd think he would be more stable.

Thanks!

Many of them have been mis-assembled. Look at the figure's gray upper thigh pieces. If the left one has an "R" on it and the right one has an "L" on it, that's your problem. Luckily they pop right off so you can switch them without unscrewing anything or removing any pins. HOWEVER, even when they're assembled correctly, he's still a bit back-heavy due to his lack of "heels".

Play around with his legs some more; they have stiff joints and may bend more than you think. if you can get him into a sort of chicken-leg stance with his feet back as far as possible and his torso out over his toes, that helps.

He really just needs a piece of plastic to fold down on the backs of his feet; so many other figures have this I'm surprised they overlooked it on Skids.

Dreadwings' companion piece, the small blue jet oft mistaken for energon Starscream, is named smokescreen

Ah, I forgot Smokescreen was once a jet!

Thanks for the compliments about the galleries. I'm glad you are enjoying them, Agamemnon.

As for Skids, unfortunately he has stability issues. :(
