It's been a while since we visited this side of the Transformers toyverse, but Seibetron has just acquired two latecoming Power Attacker figures that just had to be shared with everyone! Check out below two new gallery additions from the Age of Extinction line, featuring High Octane Bumblebee and the contender for one of the best names out there, Chainsaw Thrash Vehicon!

The latter is the only incarnation of a character that was sort of seen in the movieverse, if not the last film specifically, and comes with chainsaw splitting gun action, while the latest iteration of Bumblebee features more or less the same body as the Generations Deluxe version, with spring loaded cannon gimmick. Click on any image for the full galleries, as always.

I would love a proper movie-style Vehicon that wasn't Crankcase.

That Vehicon is really cool looking despite not being a proper deluxe



Is the Vehicon scout size or Deluxe size?


Here is the card art for him

That Vehicon is the spiffiest power-attacker they've released. Almost tempting.

How about articulation?



I understand that the left arm has no elbow but what about the rest of the limbs?

Ryan's gallery pics should demonstrate the toy's extent of articulation. ;)

All toys named "Vehicon" in any variation since PRiD have been blessed with looking kick-ass, no matter the size class.

That Vehicon looks not awful. Like he could maybe stand with the regular toys and not completely look out of place.

Scout size isnt bad.

Sigh... I may never see that Vehicon in store... :-(

In most situations where I'm left with a choice of having to settle or not getting one at all, I go with the latter option. This time around though, I may actually settle with getting this vehicon. Normally, I don't get the battler figures. To me, most of them look like crap compared to the regular deluxe figures and I darn sure don't need the lame gimmicks they give them. Vehicon is one that I'll live with though.
As for 'Bee... holy hell, what did they do to that poor guy. I have the regular deluxe and there is no way I'd touch that battler with a 20 ft cattle prod. And they STILL haven't fixed that horrid color. Looks like some sickly Halloween reject. My High Octane 'Bee never leaves vehicle mode just because of that nasty color.

I'm gonna try to find this guy and have him, Darksyde Soundwave, and Stinger form a posse with Lockdown, a la the Rise of the Dark Spark game.

So hard to find good Decepticons in this toy line.

Except it doesn't besides the left arm not having an elbow but the right arm does.



Do the knees bend or the legs at all?


Does the right arm have a moving shoulder?

Oh yeah, the 1steps are almost that big.

I went toy hunting yesterday and I saw some RID Legions. Holy crap I forgot how tiny they where! However, the price is anything but. 9$CAN+tx for a single legion?! Yikes!

Why is the Power Attacker High Octane Bumblebee better than its deluxe counterpart?
These are cool!The power attacker line reminds me of the cyberverse line.They really resemble cyberverse commanders!

The gallery does demonstrate it's artjculation. The right arm only moves an awkward side-to-side (left to right) at the shoulder. It does not move front to back. It can only bend at the elbow.

There are no joints for articulation in the legs or knees.

The figure has extremely limited articulation, which Is why the gallery doesn't show a whole lot.

After posting our galleries of the recently released Power Attackers Chainsaw Thrash Vehicon and High Octane Bumblebee figures from Hasbro's Transformers Age of Extinction line yesterday, we received several requests for a video review demonstrating the articulation of these figures. Unfortunately, due to their gimmicks both figures suffer from a lack of articulation. If you're at all familiar with the Power Attackers (or Power Battlers depending on who you ask and what day it is), then you know what you're getting with these figures. Check out our video review below on Seibertron.com's YouTube channel.

Thanks for the video demonstration I'm grateful you took the time to make the vid!



kinda disappointed he has no knees but I can live with it.
