New Galleries: G1, Platinum, Encore, Commemorative, and more

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Powermaster Prime is the only G1 figure I still have from my childhood. Was a memorable birthday and I just can't part with that figure yet.

Doubledealer was a fun figure too. My preferred mode for him was the Decepticon bird mode. Is one reason I don't much care for the Generations figure (apart from the issues already common with the Blitzwing mold). Also I liked the lil bat powermaster engine. Was a nice change to get an animal 'master companion.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Only 3 left! I've had all of these Powermaster galleries finished since before SDCC last year. It was my big gallery push that I did right before SDCC so that I'd have something new to work on for Seibertron.com on the plane and during my travels for SDCC 2014. Unfortunately, that never happened and those galleries, like so many others, just sat on my computer unfinished. Now that I knocked out Doubledealer and Powermaster Optimus Prime, hopefully I can get to the Autobot Powermasters next week during my travels for SDCC 2015.

That would be supersweet.

Is there any way you can compare them to their Masterforce versions? In particular the Ranger/Joyride comparison.

The galleries of Seibertron return to the realm of Generation 1 to bring you high quality galleries of the last 3 Powermasters to pass before the lens. These galleries include Getaway, Joyride and Slapdash as well as their Nebulon partners Rev, Hotwire and Lube.

The Powermaster partners serve as an external power source to give a power boost to the Transformer they are bonded with. Powermasters need their nebulon partners in order to unlock their transformation.

*BOMP*

Knowing Getaway only from MtMtE, I'd have never guessed he had a little guy that turned into his engine block.
Or that he had an engine block to begin with.

I had Joyride. His spoiler in robot mode doesn't even trrrryyy to hide the fact the lower legs are just one big piece. Leg articulation? What's that?


Always thought Hasbro shot themselves in the foot a little by using the Macross figure for Jetfire cos once I had that and it's excellent articulation, pretty much every Transformer following it just felt basic as all hell. But I still got them anyways.

Nice pictures!

1988 was really when the toys in Japan and the Unites States really started to separate. It would be cool to see comparison photos with their Japanese counterparts Lightfoot, Ranger, and Roadking.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

Bucket/Want List:
1. Micromaster Combiner Sixwing (1992 Takara)
2. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (G2 Deco)
3. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (Marvel Comics Deco)
4. Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry

At the very least, Lightfoot and Road King seem identical to Getaway and Slapdash.

I see some cool design similarities between Powermaster Slapdash and Endergon Prowl. If I could have used a head from the Armada Blur on Prowl, and just a little bit of paint, it would have made a cool custom. Talk about a missed opportunity since I got rid of both that Blur and Prowl last year.

New Galleries: G1 Mini-Bots IGA Blue Cliffjumper, Bumblejumper, and Micro Change MC04 Mini CAR Robo

Postby Va'al » Wed Aug 05, 2015 2:28 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
You want some Mini-Bots from Generation 1? We got some Mini-Bots from Generation 1! The latest instalment of the Seibertron.com galleries bring you a look at what Bumblebee's pals (now that the MP gallery for the G2 version is available) looked like in the old days, by showing off IGA Blue Cliffjumper, Bumblejumper, and Micro Change MC04 Mini CAR Robo 02 XG1500 (Yellow).

They all share very similar molds, identical transformations, sport different colours and there are even some head sculpt differences (but no ankle tilt) - take a roll down brick memory lane by clicking on any of the images below to access the full galleries!

The head sticker and chest stickers are different, and the shade of yellow is different (at least on the ones I photographed). I think the Micro Change version was a lighter shade of yellow and the Transformers one was a more standard yellow, but it's really hard to tell in my pictures which one was the lighter shade.

I sold the Micro Change one and I'd still like to replace at least the chest on my Bumblejumper because of the scratch through the Autobot sticker. Other than that flaw, it's a really nice Bumblejumper.

For being G2 figures, they seem rather plain. Apart from just being shiny, I mean.

I think I dimly remember the cars from my early childhood, but without realizing they could transform. I dunno, maybe I'm confusing them with Hot Wheels or something...
