Man, the paint/tampo work on these kreons is just terrible.

Agreed on that. That's just the major turnoff for me with the Kreons. Their paint apps tampograph are just so poorly done and aligned. This here, looks like somebody designed them with a frickin Sharpie pen.

Hasbro should really QC these Kreon. The best tampo I ever had with Kreons was Jarugar from series 8 i think. That was superb. Colors are nice, well aligned and sharp. That proves they could do it.

These are really... yikes. The actual designs look rather primitive with how reliant they are on straight lines, then the printing itself has a bunch of errors like smudging, chipping, and not fully covering a surface.

Seriously, just compare them to THIS:

Aside from the yellow paint for Nightbird's eyes and a few other minor flaws on the rest of these guys, I don't see all of the major flaws that are deserving of the comments above. With macro photography, the flaws in all Transformers toys paint jobs is brought into extreme focus. It is the bane of my existence as I try to find as near perfect specimens of each toy to photograph. The smallest flaws on these toys are brought out unfortunately by my up close and personal photography. The flaws aren't nearly as noticeable when held in hand versus under my camera lens.

Yeah, because all the other kreons you've photographed looked like crap. Oh wait, they looked fine, and the botcon kreons look like crap. Not even the past 2 years sets looked this bad. So this was either a QC issue which still further reinforces the rumor the club doesn't pay for it despite what they say. Or they gave up on this set. Either way, you don't have to rationalize the clubs mistakes, I know you want to be closer, but still.

I'm sure you meant well with your statement but please don't pull that card on me again. I do not deserve that.

In addition, you haven't seen enough photographs of mine of the Kre-o line to know whether or not the rest look just as flawed or not since I only photographed the first wave or two of products 3 years ago. I haven't photographed any of the Microchangers since the preview wave.

It indeed is. Not surprising since Kre-O covers not only Transformers, but Battleship, G.I. Joe and Star Trek as well ;)

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.
