Fresh from the Seibertron.com gallery vault! Originally photographed back in 2016, Seibertron.com has recently released a series of galleries featuring the individual Transformers Seacons from the 2009 commemorative reissue of Piranacon. The galleries provide an in-depth look at each individual figure, with comparison photos to the original 1988 version of the Seacons, as well as Timelines Piranacon and Beast Wars II God Neptune.

The galleries showcase Snaptrap, Nautilator, Overbite, Skalor, Tentakil, and Seawing, providing detailed images and information on each figure. Snaptrap, the leader of the Seacons, is a turtle-like creature with a cannon on his back. Nautilator is a lobster-like creature. Overbite is a shark-like creature with a menacing set of jaws. Skalor, a giant coelacanth creature with arms and legs. Tentakil, a squid-like creature, can ensnare his enemies with his many tentacles. Seawing, a manta ray with legs, can fly through the air.

While the updated decos for some of them, Piranacon's newly chromed sword, and "remastered" stickers make the 2009 reissue of the Seacons a must-have for collectors, those looking for additional articulation may be disappointed. The toy molds for the newer versions are the same as the original versions and do not include any extra articulation. However, the comparison photos to the original 1988 version of the Seacons, as well as other versions of Piranacon from the Transformers Timelines and Beast Wars II series, allow fans to see how these figures have evolved over time. If you're looking for new "Generations" versions of the Seacons, look no further than the Generations Selects Seacons released in 2020.

These galleries of the individual Transformers Seacons from the 2009 commemorative reissue of Piranacon provide a comprehensive look at each figure and their abilities, characteristics, and place in the Seacons' hierarchy. While some of the deco changes from the originals may be a downside for some fans, the updated decos and updated stickers make the figures a valuable addition to any Transformers collection.

Seibertron.com has just released brand new galleries featuring some of the most iconic figures from the Generation 1 era - Metroplex with Six-Gun, Scamper, and Slammer, and Trypticon with Full-Tilt and Brunt.

These figures are not only beloved by fans but are also significant in the Transformers mythos. Metroplex, the Autobot City, was one of the largest Transformers of his time, towering over other figures. The original Generation 1 toy had two versions, one with rubber wheels and the other with plastic wheels, and both are included in the galleries. The plastic wheels version is our "main" Metroplex gallery because the rubber wheels version was covered in-depth in the gallery of the Encore Metroplex reissue.

Metroplex's companions, Six-Gun, Scamper, and Slammer, are also included in the galleries. Six-Gun, in particular, is notable for being made up of six smaller guns that combine to form his robot mode. Scamper is a fully transformable black car. Slammer is a non-transforming drone-like tank.

Trypticon, the Decepticon dinosaur, is another impressive figure featured in the galleries. He can transform into a robotic space station, a city, and of course, his dinosaur form. Alongside Trypticon are his loyal minions, Full-Tilt and Brunt, who add to the overall menacing presence of the figure. Full-Tilt is a full transformable purple vehicle, comparable to Scamper. Brunt is non-transforming tank made of various accessories from Trypticon and has a light-up feature on his cannon.

Whether you're a longtime fan of these iconic Transformers figures or discovering them for the first time, Seibertron.com's galleries are a must-see for any collector or enthusiast. Check out our extensive galleries of each of these exciting G1 Transformers action figures below by clicking on any of the images.

That Trypticon clearance price. ;)^ I think we sometimes forget things going on clearance isn't just a modern thing. Some of the biggest, most sought after figures from back in the day also went on clearance just like the equivalent figures today.

Seibertron.com recently posted new galleries of two awesome Transformers figures from the Heroes of Cybertron and SCF toy lines: Metroplex and Black Zarak. These non-transforming figures are sure to excite collectors with their high level of detail and quality craftsmanship.

The Heroes of Cybertron toy line was first introduced in 2001 and features small non-transforming figures of various Transformers characters in their classic forms. Metroplex, featured in the Seibertron.com gallery, stands at about four inches tall and features intricate detailing on his chestplate, weapons, and other parts of his body. The cartoon styling on this figure make it a must-have for any Transformers fan.

Black Zarak is another popular figure from Takara's SCF toy line. This menacing figure stands at just under four inches tall and captures the dark essence of the character. The figure's intricate detailing and ominous presence make it a great addition to any collection. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to take comparison photos with the original Black Zarak (which was sold before obtaining the SCF version, and this toy was sold a few years ago prior to the Generations Selects version). It is roughly the same size as Metroplex.

Seibertron.com's galleries showcase the level of detail and craftsmanship that have made these figures popular among collectors. The galleries feature multiple angles of the figures and highlight their paint jobs, styling, size, and more, allowing fans to fully appreciate the figures' design and to determine if these are figures that they would like to add to their collections.

Overall, the new galleries of Heroes of Cybertron Metroplex and SCF Black Zarak on Seibertron.com are sure to please Transformers fans and collectors alike. With their attention to detail and high level of quality, these figures are a must-have for any fan of the franchise.
