Our second offering for the day, in terms of Seibertron.com exclusive photo galleries, is another haul from BotCon 2015, and another homage to a previous Transfromers line - G2 in this case - 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".

Indeed, great galleries. Thanks for doing them. :) If I wasn't convinced to buy them before, this would do it. :APPLAUSE:

Magnificent. At some stage I'm going have to pick those up.

Have tempted to throw a few Decepticon insignias on an old GI Joe Snowcat.

Wouldn't mind seeing a few more Joe repaints as Transformers like maybe an AWE Striker ad Sandstorm, Dune Runner or Beachcomber.

The other Seekers and Air Raid.

The Mauler could be used for Blitzwing or Quake

The Mocassin as G2 Leadfoot

Mercer could pass for Pretender Starscream out of armour.

Dye the hair blonde and you've got Landmine out of armour

Blaster could pass for Jazz in his shell

Interesting ideas! Makes me think it'd be great to do the Masterforce Pretender humans ... Diver, Phoenix, Waver and Hawk. It's too bad there isn't a kid-sized GI Joe figure because then you could do all of the kids as well like Daniel, Rad, Alexis, Carlos, Minvera, Cancer, Go Shuta, and Cab as well as any others worthy of getting a Joe sized toy made into a Transformers character.

If a G1 Metalhawk is a free gift with the $20 in coins I have laying around on the desk, then sure, PM me that email ;)

Regarding Scoop/Hound-- That new head, is that newly sculpted for the club? or is this a case where they took an unused existing alternate head? Does anybody know for sure on that? I may have missed it, if it was said somewhere else.

Yeah it is, Scoop and Roadblock share the same head, despite what I thought.

So, Sgt. Hound is a brand new headsculpt.

The Club made the Sgt. Hound head.

Yup, the Sgt. Hound head was entirely a Fun Publications/BotCon production piece.

Our latest addition to the Seibertron.com toy galleries features the last ever official use of a mold that has served well through the years, as released by the Transformers Collectors' Club - behold the last plastic Seeker in all but name: Nacelle. The second figure of the the TFCC Subscription Service 3.0, Decepticon Nacelle sports an eager blue, white and red deco, purple insignias, a set of turbine powered wings and the trademark guns and missiles. Check out the full gallery by clicking on any of the images below!

Wonderful colourscheme, however this is one Seeker who keeps moving around my collection because I'm still trying to figure out where he fits in and looks nice.
