The latest offering in the Seibertron.com galleries in the post-BotCon 2015 weeks features some more Diaclone homages in the shape of Burn-Out and Lift-Ticket, and their pilots. These two figures are the previously 'leaked', so to speak', redecos of Generations Skids and Hoist, the former featuring a black paintjob, and the latter sporting a full red makeover - and the pilots, Dia and Cline, are repurposed from the Targetmasters that came with deluxe Scoop, Holepunch and Caliburst.

Check out a preview from the new galleries below, and click on any of the images to access the full works!

That's an elevator (BrEng='lift') pitch if I ever heard one.

I cant wait for mine to arrive. I ordered em from the club finally. I also bought an extra X2 add on kit for lift ticket. Sure the gun is a brighter yellow but who gives a crap? I love diaclone homages. Somebody needs to do a black ironhide and blue trailbreaker. I heard the club is done with diaclone now, no future plans for it. Maybe e-hobby can get the ball rolling ?

A little late to the party, but this, all the way.

Exhibit "The only example I'm posting right now":

Man, look at that running silver paint on his chest, the nick in the red around the Minicon port, the messy gate mark on the right arm, the small chips and inconsistently masked red on the front of the boat, and the tarnish on the metal assembly pin.

Except then get it in hand and it looks flawless. My camera isn't even nearly as nice as Ryan's (I've seen it, and mine, albeit a DSLR as well, is like a Fischer Price My First Camera next to it). I can only imagine how bad Kreons would look if I did it, whether they came from the club or from retail.

What's more is that Burn Out is (piloted by) a female.

I finally got my box set yesterday and read the comic. Fun little book, and she looks very Samus-like in that panel about 2-3 pages from the end where she's holding her helmet off to the side. I dug it.

"Wrecker" is often associated with tow-trucks like this in Japan. In fact, the Diaclone is called "4WD Wrecker Type" and RiD 2001 Tow-Line is called "Wrecker Hook" in Car Robots. It's more in the sense carrying off wrecks rather than actually causing them. :)

Funnily enough, "Wrecker Hook" is also the name of one of Tow-Line's main attacks in the RiD 2001 dub. :P

And the dub kinda went a little overboard with this attack name since he called it out just about every time he used his hook in his debut episode, when he only called it out once in the Car Robots version of the episode (during the fight at the episode's end).

Our second offering for the day, in terms of Seibertron.com exclusive photo galleries, is another haul from BotCon 2015, and another homage to the Diaclone line that preceded Transformers: General Optimus Prime and Sgt Hound!

The two figures sport some heavy military decos, with Generations Roadbuster now in camo green and Scoop in white and grey (plus a new head too), while still keeping the two Targetmaster minicons. Check them all in the image selection below, and click on any of them to access the full galleries for each!

I think that these two are my most favourite of this year's exclusives.

I like them, but I think Zaptrap and Lift Ticket and Burnout are mine favs.

Sergeant W.A.L.T. is an instant win for me. I enjoy the nods to fans. Especially when the fan is a friend.

Following yesterday's news from the Transformers Collectors' Club about their crossover G.I. Joe sets of Afterbreaker and Marissa Faireborn, and Old Snake with Stealth B.A.T. from earlier this year being available in their store, Seibertron.com is proud to present a browsing opportunity for those of you uncertain whether these are figures you want in your collection!

The galleries, accessed by clicking on any of the images, show the characters in a variety of poses and display options, including the retro-style packaging, and offer comparisons with previous G.I. Joe and Transformers themed crossovers. Take a look below!

That group shot of all of the GI Joe vs Transformers toys from the past 3 or 4 years took quite a while to setup, plus required an extra trip to my warehouse to collect all of those figures. The shot turned out nice! Interesting seeing all of those toys together, even if fictionally it doesn't really make sense. Even Combiner Wars Viper made an appearance! I thought about tossing the horrid Titanium Megatron in there, but since he's Cobra related through the bio only (and because the toy is one of the worst Transformers toys ever), I decided to omit him.

I really wanted to do a shot with the G1 and/or Generations versions of Old Snake with Ultra Magnus, Rodimus Prime, Springer and Arcee (Generations version would have to do double duty), but decided it would be best to save that for when we get the full set of upcoming toys from "Only Human".
