The Seibertron.com galleries turn the camera lens back to BotCons past with new galleries for BotCon 2015 Zaptrap with Beet-Chit and Spy-Eye and BotCon 1998 Vice Grip.

Zaptrap who is a redeco of Generations Skrapnel is based on the Diaclone Waruder Insecter Robo Kuwagatrer mech which later became G1 Shrapnel while Beet-Chit is a redeco of Generations Chop Shop and is based on the pilot of that mech. Spy-Eye is a redeco of Generations Reflector and its weapon mode is modeled after G1 Shrapnel's grenade launcher. The three made up the attendee-only bonus figure during BotCon 2015.

Going back to BotCon 1998 in the 3H days and continuing the insect theme we present a gallery of Vice Grip who is a blue and gray redeco of Beast Wars Powerpinch. Click on any of the images below to see the full galleries.

It's a pity Zaptrap is a BotCon exclusive, 'cuz I would army-build the hell out of him otherwise. I do love that mold.

Seibertron.com is proud to to present the gallery of the Transformers Collector's Club Figure Subscription Service 4.0 first figure, Needlenose. Which is an update to 1988's G1 Targetmaster Needlenose. TFSS Needlenose is a repaint of Combiner Wars Firefly and includes updated versions of Sunbeam and Zigzag (aka Zputty), which themselves are repaints of Caliburst and Holepunch.

IDW fans may appreciate a guest cameo appearance by Reveal the Shield Turbo Tracks in Needlenose's gallery.

In the thumbnail, it looked sorta like Thunderwing.

Came in the post yesterday (wasn't sure how long it would take in Canada) and I'm absolutely LOVING him. TFCC knocked the deco right out of the park. It's amazing how much different he looks from Slingshot despite being a pure repaint. Even without the extra knight helmet it's just... It's Needlenose. The shiny, metallic paint is great. He's just gorgeous on the shelf.

That vain, pretentious bastard. 8-)

"Zputty"? Isn't that some kind of 3D rendering program?

Zputty, such a punky name for a Decepticon. It also sounds like a farting joke gone bad. As for Needlenose, he looks nice and I like the mold choice. Awesome figure! ;)^

As promised, and as the Transformers Collectors' Club keeps sending out its Subscription Service 4.0 figures, Seibertron.com continues to provide its visual services to the figures - as we did with Needlenose when it shipped, so we do now with the figure that was intended to be retail Ruckus, changed into Combiner Wars Offroad by Hasbro, and now released under the Grabuge name by the Club!

Click on any of the images to open up the full gallery, as we plough full steam ahead towards our 5000 gallery milestone.

Huh. I know Off-Road was originally designed to be Ruckus before they changed directions, but wow. I didn't do a direct comparison but that head and shin detail is completely Ruckus.

He doesn't look AMAZING but I'm really excited to get this guy, one of my favorite D-list Decepticons :lol:

Thanks for the high-res Ruckus photo gallery. Those tacky paint apps really stand out compared to the factory figures, especially all the inaccurate and wavy edges/lines where they meet another color. For a 3x-4x price point, I'll pass. If the paint apps were factory quality, maybe. But even then, the price point is kind of silly.

And just as OffRoad almost ended up being Ruckus, so too did his actual Ruckus repaint.

Who decided to translate his name into French? Slicer?

Ruckus will always hold a special place in my heart for being the only Triggercon (or -bot) that I actually owned in '88. I wonder, was the aborted attempt to make him a Stunticon what led to the whole Thunder Mayhem gestalt team idea? IDR what was said about that back during the reveal.

The "Ruckus" trademark didn't pass legal - another toy company must have it. So to keep him as "Ruckus" as possible, one of the translated names from the original G1 packaging was used. Specifically, his French-Canadian name.

The Mayhem Attack Squad team concept solidified around some very cool ideas in Needlenose, Spinister, and of course Ruckus. Windsweeper was quick in materializing as well.

Ruckus looks great. I can def see how this mould was made for him. Cant wait for the Ramjet gallery. When is he shipping out? Anyone hear anything about it yet? I know I have asked a couple times in the last few weeks but he is much anticipated.

He's still delayed, but Ryan got an pre-release specimen for the galleries:

Keep in mind, this is the one without the modifications to the head.

The one in my gallery that Pete loaned me to photograph had the correct head modification so that the head could do the fin in jet mode. Just confirmed with Pete that it was the corrected one.

Sweet thanks, I must have missed the gallery for him some how. Hate that he is delayed.

Got ruckus in the mail today. Heh. Tiny box compared to needlenose.

I like him a lot. Because RUCKUS. He unfortunately simply has too much paint. The yellow paint especially on his outer truck shell just looks too thick and glossy, and kind of cheap, doesn't quite go with the really nice colors of the blue plastic. I totally understand the need to work with the mold stories and it looks right onto the character,just looks more like a custom than a high-end collector item.

Love the little details like the spring eco on his hood, the yellow connector chest port. He's really cool but just not as nicely done as needlenose or my previous sub figures (thrustinator, circuit, jackpot).
