Everyone's favorite Autobot mad-scientist, Wheeljack, is the first figure to get the ol' Seibertron.com gallery treatment of the highly anticipated Transformers War for Cybertron EARTHRISE product line. Deluxe Class Wheeljack is like a mini-Masterpiece figure that has a G1 cartoon style in robot mode and a G1 toy look in vehicle mode, complete with various decals that homage the Lancia Stratos Turbo racecar.

The Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise products have been popping up at various retail chains like Walmart, Target and Best Buy throughout the past month. Make sure to share your sightings with your fellow Seibertronians in our sightings section and sightings forums.

Up next in our all-new galleries for Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise, is none other than the Autobots very own Maintenance 'bot Hoist. If his Generations Thrilling 30 toy was a disappointment to you, then the latest Deluxe Class version of Hoist should hit a lot of the right notes for you. Hoist features key character design elements like his "full spectrum multi-sensor", his orange wings and an arm cannon. In tow-truck mode, Hoist can even tow his fellow Autobot comrades that were damaged in battle against the Decepticons. His tow-truck accessory also doubles as a ramp accessory that connects to other bases. We even tossed in some pics of Hoist alongside his "master builder" buddy Grapple, who is also part of the Earthrise wave 1 releases.

Woo!
Will comparisons to the original and the MP be forthcoming?

Not at this time. I'm trying to limit the amount of comparisons I do in these galleries to be more time efficient. :(

Huh. I never realized this until you pointed it out.

A colorful altmode deco and a clean robot mode deco. The best of both worlds.

I'm really happy with ER Wheeljack. I just wish he had more 5mm ports. His spoiler pieces are actually 5mm and can be removed for more ports but then he doesn't have his classic look.

The Hoist mold looks great, but why does he have two different shades of green? Looks patchy.

The entire front and roof/windshield section are painted translucent plastic. The side panels are molded in green.

It's not quite as bad in hand, but photographed...

Have to agree, it's entirely the camera that makes it look worse. Looking at him in my room the difference is barely noticeable, but if I whip a camera out and take a picture in the same lightning, the contrast is significant.

I was never a fan if Wheeljack, but that's a damn good looking figure. He looks a bit too flat in car mode, but he's a racecar so I guess that's fine. I haven't seen him or Hoist yet in the wild, as soon as I do, they're mine. Are there vehicle mode comparison shots with other Wheeljacks in the gallery?

Thanks. Group shots are my favorite parts of the galleries, I'll be checking out those the most. They help me organize my display shelves.

New Gallery: Voyager Starscream from Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise

PostPosted: Mon Apr 06, 2020 9:27 am
by Seibertron
The traitourous and self-serving Decepticon STARSCREAM is the latest gallery for the new Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise product line. Voyager Class Starscream takes many, many cues from his Transformers Classics mold from 2006, this version features a "more-or-less" cartoon accurate color scheme and additional points of articulation (such as ankle-tilts) and proper null-rays. However, it lacks proper landing gear and waist articulation! Regardless, it's still a great looking Starscream, let alone a great looking Transformers toy. The gallery shows comparison shots with the Henkei version of Starscream as well as the SIEGE version.

I prefer the starscream from the siege line. More articulate and possible. All of the seekers from that line... perfect

New Galleries: Grapple and Cliffjumper from Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise

Up next are new galleries of Voyager Class Grapple and Deluxe Class Cliffjumper from this year's Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise series. Both figures might be the best representations of either of these characters from the regular product lines (excluding Masterpiece). Grapple includes several accessories to recreate his look in the G1 cartoon, as does Cliffjumper who includes his giant glass gas blaster in addition to a set of skis to recreate one of his iconic moments. Both galleries include traditional shots as well as comparison shots for your viewing pleasure. Grapple's gallery includes images alongside his Constructicon "friends" and his buddy Hoist. Cliffjumper's gallery includes some comparisons with Titans Return Bumblebee and his Earthrise wave-mates.

The Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise products have been popping up at various retail chains like Walmart, Target and Best Buy throughout the past couple of months as well as online websites such as Amazon.com as well as our sponsors.

This grapple seems to be nearly as hard to find as the previous one was.

I haven't seen any of the Earthrise voyagers locally. Not that I'm running around looking as often right now, but they were supposed to be out before the lock downs occured I believe.

I did find the first wave of deluxes though and the Astrotrain Earthrise version Leader.

Grapple's Photo gallery has singlehandedly sold me on never getting the Constructicons. Might have to look for those smaller alternatives.

That could be because they are 3 to a case with 2 Grapples and 1 Screamer.

As a kid, before transformers was part of my life, my 1st obsession was cranes. And when I saw the original G1 grapple in a shop window - I drove my parents nuts with my nagging and whining for it. He is still one of my favourite toys and characters, have my original and a reissue.

Have the MP which is excellent. One of my favourite mp's

Have the Generations figure which I never really liked - didn't care for the aesthetic (even though more than one reviewer mentioned it was nice g1-esque...) and certain pieces popped off.

Just received earth rise and got him out of the box - think this is what lot os us G1 fans hankered after - re interpretation of the original toy with modern engineering providing great articulation etc. Pity about the too large pegs issue otherwise he'd have been in my top 3 of siege released so far.

Also - bonus - no elastic tags keeping him in his plastic prison.
