Our Bumblebee galleries just keep on rolling because you can never have too much of the 'bee. The next Bumblebee gallery we are focusing on is that of the Age of Extinction Leader Class variety. This new Bumblebee is a repaint of the previous Dark of the Moon Bumblebee with out his massive Mech-Tech weapon. The paint apps have been updated to match his new look in Age of Extinction. Age of Extinction Leader Class Bumblebee is said to be hanging out at Costco. Click on any of the images to see the full gallery.

I didn't even know this guy would be used again. And guess what? Looking at him, it doesn't matter. He's actually lost paint and about half of his bodyweight.

AOE Leader Class Bumblebee...

Even at 30$ on clearance, I didn't want the DOTM version. The AOE Leader bee is just a repaint of the DOTM one. With almost all the paint aps removed. Without the BFG backpack. And the thing will sell for 55-60$ in Canadian stores.

So,

This figure doesn't have that many less paint apps on it from the previous version. Other than the absence of the Autobot symbol on its forehead and rear license plate (and maybe a few other places). But he also gains paint apps elsewhere. The stripes in vehicle mode are laid out differently which is why in robot mode he looks like he has less paint apps.

They're selling a toy, not a comic book here.

I'd like a new head for this guy.

The unstoppable Seibertron is tirelessly working to bring us all more plastic enjoyment (via a screen and in visual form). The latest gallery offering is a repaint of Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime from Takara Tomy, a Toys'R'Us Japan exclusive, and looks a little more like its big screen incarnation: feast your optics below on the Rusty Version of Optimus Prime, by clicking on any image to view the whole gallery!

seibs youre missing some poses! i got mine kinda hunched over holding his chest since he was all busted up in the movie (in this form).

i get people who say hes not as accurate as he should be, but i still think its a beautiful figure. bits like the rusty hub caps are a real nice touch. i think if this prime shook all the dust off, he'd end up looking like hasbros rusty prime :lol:

Every time I mock Hasbro for pooping out yet another Bumblebee figure, they seem to double down and poop out even more.

Will anyone actually buy this? Not me. In fact the ONLY movie toy I've gotten so far is Evasion Prime. And that's only because he is more like G1 Prime than Bayverse Prime.

And as I predicted, NO one is buying those ridiculous shampoo bottles which Hasbro is calling 'action figures'.

They may be selling some because they keep making them. Still, I can understand the one-step changers and such. However, I don't get those big, unpainted brics at all. Make them GI-Joe sized and sell them for 2$ at the dollar store and it will be fine. Instead, they are fawking huge and go for 10-15$ each. WTF, man?!

BTW, dude, by not buying voyager Hound, Grimlock, and Galvatron, you are missing out.

You are not angry enough. If you get even angrier, Hasbro will totally listen to you.

From what I've heard, Hasbro is making a killing on the "Shampoo Bottle" toys in the world-wide market for whatever reason (think areas of the world where you don't expect to find Transformers that often). I have a feeling those extremely simplified toys will be around for a while unfortunately.

Love Takara's evasion mode Optimus. I prefer it to the Hasbro one. Seems like alot of people are tending towards the opposite. Anyone know why? Also it looks like this Evasion Mode Prime's gun would be a better color match for DOTM Megatron. Too bad you didn't get a shot of that Ryan :-?

Because Hasbro's one better reflects how he looked in the movie in both modes instead of just in truck mode like Takara's does. Takara's robot mode is albino from head to toe, whereas both Hasbro's and the movie version two-toned.

This one figure is both extremes in rusty paint aps; barely any in bot mode and too much in truck mode. I need something in between.

There's that "Farmageddon" one, though I think it'd just be easier/cheaper to get the regular one on clearance and leave it outside until it's faded and weather-beaten.

It is our pleasure to introduce to you, the next two inductees into the galleries of Seibertron. Two members of the Age of Extinction Dinobots, Strafe and Slash. Strafe who transforms into a two-headed Pteranodon was a Knight who was imprisoned on Lockdown's ship and freed by Optimus Prime. Slash transforms into a Velociraptor but was not featured in the Age of Extinction movie. Click on any of the images to see the full galleries.

Ladies and gents, 'bots and 'cons, we here at Seibertron.com are excited to present our newest additions to our ever-expanding toy galleries, Takara Tomy's Lost Age Grimlock (Generation One edition) and Slug (Generation One edition)! While from a glance they look the same as their San Diego Comic Con 2014 selves, these Japanese exclusives sport notable differences, such as less chrome, more details, and different paint applications. Without further adieu, the preliminary images to these new additions!

I think Hasbro won this round on both of them. Still kinda strange that they Takara Tomy based their Slug/Slag on Canadian Slag, or at least the Slag from the box photos. Seems like way too much red to be the true G1 Slag.

We told you we'd bring you more news in the black repaint department - and it's the two main characters from Transformers: Age of Extinction, Optimus Prime and Grimlock! Check out the latest instalment of the Seibetron.com galleries, featuring the Transformers Expo 2014 Nemesis Grimlock and Nemesis Prime Exclusives, redecos of Voyagers Evasion Mode Optimus and Dinobot Grimlock, both of which were limited to the Japanese event and we were able to procure for your visual enjoyment.

Kinda sad there are just as many Nemeses as there are canon Decepticons... and the one canon Nemesis, Stinger, is unaccounted for. Pfft.

Those two are pretty damn cool, though.

i have no need for a black and purple grimlock. to me theres pretty much either nemesis/black (reserved pretty much for primes) and shattered glass. and SG grimmy doesnt look like that to me.

prime on the other hand, will be mine. even at those terrifying after market prices...

Just an FYI for those of you interested. I paid $300 for the pair for AOE Nemesis Prime and Nemesis Grimlock, $150 a piece, including the cost of shipping. That price is absurd, but limited supply and sold out items dictate price unfortunately. The prices that they are at currently on eBay of $220 plus shipping is just nuts. Those prices make other convention exclusive prices look pretty reasonable!

So, if Hasbro repaints any figure in black and turquoise deco, it is called nemesis whatever? And for what, a double dip on an overpriced toy?


I just read some of you paid $300 for these? This stuff IS like crack, as some of you joke. You are addicts, just in a less physically destructive way.

TakaraTomy does it too, in fact they've overtaken Hasbro in that department. The $300 tag can be attributed to 3 factors: Japanese, exclusive, and convention, in ascending order.

I don't really care for the Nemesis shtick, as it's too overused and diluted. None of them hold a candle to RiD Scourge (in my case, CR Black Convoy).

They were only available at the Transformers Expo in Yokohama, Japan, and in extremely limited quantities. After the Expo was over, that was it. No other chances to get these figures aside from those who were actually there. It's one of those "you had to be there in person to get these" cases.

Repaints and retools are a TF trope since the very beginning of G1. They are cost effective and they sell like hotcakes. Repaints aint going away. Ever.
