Turning the camera lens to the Transformers Collectors' Club subscription service 3.0 we get a very nice gallery of the 1st figure Carzap with Kreon G.B. Blackrock. Based on an unused concept that paired Transformers with Takara's Diablock building block line which was to be known as Blocktown in the post G2 era.

Carzap is a retool of the Generations Bumblebee mold which was also used for Generations Goldfire, Nightbeat as well as Goshooter which was a Million Publishing exclusive. To homage the building block aspect of Blocktown, Carzap comes with a Kre-O set that builds a gas pump which can be converted into a laser cannon. Click on any of the images to see the full gallery.

I wouldn't mind adding a few more humans to my TF collection such as GB Blackrock but certainly not Kreons. I was fond of the Human Alliance figures though so does anyone know of any other toylines that have similar figures in size and articulation that I can just buy the human figures from to customise into TF humans? Actual HA figures would be far too expensive since would have to buy the whole robot set and end up with a ton of unneeded robots. :P

I want Carzap. Alot. Which is odd cause I have no connection to the figure other than loving G2.

Fantastic toys, aren't they? 8)

Ryan, if you own or ever plan to get the original Diaclone figures that these pilots and the Storm Rider drone are based on, and want to later update the galleries with comparison pics, here's a chart with all of them plus the others that all the Diaclone homage toys from this year were based on:

I know... :BOOM:

At first all I wanted (well, needed) was the yellow/green SG Waspinator. But the preview of this gallery and the full one convinced me how much love they put into these Wasps. I want them all. But DAMN that price :-(

Yeah, I would say for 8 figures, it's worth it, but unless they swapped the stupid-cheap rubber for something that doesn't make me want to burn the mini-waspies, I will be saving my money for CW wave 3 (whenever HTS gets them instock :-x )

I don't have much interest in chasing down Diaclones for the sake of doing comparisons for these guys. If I found some for a steal, maybe, but I'd really rather finish my Takara G1 collection first.

What I am interested in knowing is where I can find out if the Reflector pilot is actually called Spy-Eye (as in the Go-Bot, which I read elsewhere on our forums) and if the Diaclone pilot which it homages is a good guy or a Waruder and who the original pilot it homages is.

On the first page that Burn Out and Lift-Ticket appear in the comic, Lift-Ticket is holding the red Reflector in camera mode and refers to it as "Spy-Eye". I'd give the page number, but the comic lacks page numbers and I wouldn't know which page to consider "Page 1" (the cover, the inside cover, or the next page with the story's beginning).

Lift-Ticket's line of dialogue reads "Hrm, the signals that are being detected by Spy-Eye... without a doubt."

Sadly, the little guy doesn't seem to appear on any other page in the comic.

As for whether the name is a reference to the GoBot, or what the nature of the Diaclone toy it homages is, I know not, but can keep looking into it.

Well, looks like finding out what Diaclone toy Spy-Eye is based on was easier than I thought. It's the Powered Suit, a biosuit that the little (good guy) Diaclone pilot figures could be put into and wear.

It always tickles me to see just how deeply Transformers were influenced by mecha.

Is the price really that bad ? Its 4 figures. Split the price in 4 and they come out to $42.50 each plus shipping. Pretty good for an exclusive compared to millions publishing or Tokyo toy fair exclusives prices.

I mean, you can say 4x the price of a deluxe, for a deluxe and a rubber piece of crap is a good deal - as compared to more outlandish figures' prices; but to everyone on even the most lax budget, it's a rather horrendous price >:oP

So don't buy it. These are limited exclusives, and are priced accordingly. I sympathize with those who are priced out of instant gratification, but I don't see the point in constantly bellyaching about it.

These will most likely lower in price/value as time goes on. Patience.
