The TRU Skids in the galleries has all his stickers adhered well. Mine were a struggle to get on, and I'm sure if I looked at it some fell off and got lost. Anyone else have sticker grief with that one?

Here's another two galleries on Seibertron.com to help you through the final Friday lurch and the start of a good weekend - and another blast from the past it is! We're proud to finally show two very interesting redecos of Powermaster Optimus Prime and God Ginrai from Super God Masterforce.

First up is Nucleon Quest Super Convoy and Nebulan Powermaster partner Hi-Q, a 2001 Japanese Toys'R'Us Exclusive black redeco of the Optimus figure, including beam cannons and rifle, and the super robot head. The second bot is the fantastically orange Fire Guts God Ginrai (homaged in the 2014 BotCon set) formed by Godbomber and Super Ginrai, released in 2002 also as Japanese exclusive. Head below and through the galleries for more!

One of the best reissues from that era, something about that mold where my reissue feels higher quality than the original.

Love the Fire Guts deco. Passed up on a great deal for Nucleon Quest back at TF Con. Damn this whole "making responsible choices" thing! Always wished that version also had the God Bomber done up in black too.

Maybe if they ever get around to an MP Ginrai we can see some of these decos again!

Super Convoy is pretty cool from a fictional standpoint. Though he's part of the Japanese G1 cartoon continuity, his backstory contains elements from the Hasbro packaging backstory of the Action Masters and the Marvel Comics origin of Powermaster Optimus Prime. The toy's backstory introduced Nebulos, Nebulan Binary-Bonding, the Hasbro Powermaster concept, the Nebulan scientist Hi-Q, and Nucleon into the Japanese continuity; and placed the setting of this toy's backstory after Operation Combination right before G-2, sort of in a "G1.5" era.

In 1990, the Transformers Zone OVA videocassette was released in Japan, collecting the entirety of the Victory sequel - consisting of just the one episode! The 'series' follows new Autobot leader Dai Atlas, and focused on the Micromasters, in their Planet Zone defense base. Among them, Rabbicrater, commander of Zone City's lunar base and pilot, the newest offering in the Seibertron.com galleries!


The Rabbicrater figure itself is a blue redeco of the 1989 Skystalker mold, and transforms into a Porsche 959 sports car. Purchasing the OVA videocassette was the only means to acquire the figure too, and you can take a look at both items in our galleries, by clicking on any image below!

This is exactly the kind of stuff I love. Beautiful artwork and an obscure toy.

Didn't realize how similar Metrobomb looks to both Skystalker and Rabbicrater, essentially using the former's altmode colors and the latter's robot mode colors.

Woo hoo, Zone stuff! Love it. The bots from this era really need more reissues, there are some plain stellar toys from Zone/Return of Convoy that take the Micromasters to another level of fun.

Rabbi-Crater? that might be the oddest TF name since Erector.

The name comes from the Japanese folklore legend of the Rabbit of the Moon, as opposed to the Western forklore legend of the Man in the Moon.

I don't ;) Got the Kabaya kits of the Powered Masters, and they're great!

Japan has a lot of weird names, and Rabbicrater isn't weird, considering.

I once had the misfortune a few years back to pass up on buying Rabbicrater for 50p (yes, FIFTY pence) because I didn't collect Micromasters. I passed on it, despite thinking "I'm sure that toy isn't normally blue".

Oh, ignorance is a terrible, terrible thing - if only I'd known! That said... I still don't research my japanese TFs nearly as much as I ought to. :P

You're not the only one. Passed the opportunity to get a roughly $40. Dezaras because I wasn't familiar with him back then in 1992. :BOOM:

I only remember so specifically because it was blue and I kept thinking "Should've bought it. Its a different colour" after I'd gone home :P

Though not nearly as old as those two figures, I once passed on getting a sweet deal on a Beast Wars Telemocha Series Archadis to go with the BWTMS Waspeeter that I did get because, at the time, my primary goal was getting the BWTMS toys of just the American characters, forgetting that I also wanted the pack-in DVDs that came with each figure (including Archadis). :BANG_HEAD:
