We brought you the latest TFCC Starscream recently, which is based on the G2 penchant for neon colours, so why not continue with the actual Generation 2 Starscream and fellow Seeker Ramjet!

Jump back into the pool of funky decos with the two jets from the 90s, Starscream in his traditional white and red, with some thrown in purple, while Ramjet sports a completely inverted purple, teal, and black scheme! Both sharing the same mold, you can find their full galleries by clicking on any of the images below.

G2 Ramjet was one lucky Decepticon back in the day. He got the special honor of being the only Decepticon to get screentime fighting Optimus in the Generation 2 cartoon's opening sequence (made from G2 toy commercial footage, of course):

Sticker eyes... they really didn't want to paint anything, did they?

Ramjet's G2 colors are amazing. I'm glad Slipstream adopted them (more or less), since they probably would remain incredibly obscure otherwise.

More like paint app technology not being quite there yet to the level of today. They were released in 1992 you know? Stickers were phased out right before Beast Wars in 1995.

And Hb and TT still didn't implement it for the Seekers, whether it be TFC, Encore or the recent Seeker set. Kind of sad and frickin frustrating to attach....that's why we love the old bricks! :lol:

Now I'm wondering about what could have been... You are a wonderful person with beautiful ideas.

I'm about to start using Scourge and Cyclonus (technically, Bombshell is probably Cyclonus but Skywarp has an identical body) as my backup two seekers. I ordered a few things online recently to makeup for some gaps in my collection.

It depends on when you choose to place G2. Some of the manga places parts of it (the new characters) pre-movie. Marvel pretty much diverges from the path towards the movie events. The toy bios and Wings Universe lean towards it being post-Rebirth but keeps Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus around.

If I could design them from scratch, I would lean towards a G2 Skywarp and Thundercracker that at least take cues from Scourge and Cyclonus.

Another source of inspiration might be Machine Wars Skywarp, which has a G2 insignia and was intended as G2. And you might as well take inspiration from MW Thundercracker too then.

If you just want to go for wacky fan in-joke abominations, a white, yellow, and black Cyclonus with G2 style decals as Skywarp and a camo (or Action Master TC deco) Scourge as Thundercracker would bridge the gap.

Something-something about Forestonite causing Scourge/Cyclonus/Armada/Sweeps personalities to begin to revert.

So you could have a Scourge mold repainted in a half dozen different colors as dead Decepticons regaining their individuality. I think that's more interesting than a straight Starscream repaint.

Actually, if I could propose one thing to the club, I think I'd lean for G2 versions of the '86 movie characters. There's a UK comic book recoloration of Rodimus for G2 in purple, orange, and silver (with a G2 logo) that's spiffy as a starting point. There are decent recent molds of Magnus, Cup, Springer, Wheelie, Scourge, and Cyclonus. Galvatron is getting a cool new figure in Titans Return. I'm guessing we'll see a new Rodimus in the next couple of lines.

It'd be entertaining to G2-ize 'em all. And if you make the sweeps rainbow and give them their G1 individual personalities back, that's a ton of repaint potential. I can think of few things more G2 than taking something uniform like Sweeps and making a ton of clashing neon versions.

Three galleries for the post of one, as Seibetron.com rolls out the Music Label series again to cover the three iterations of the iPod Docking Bay toys - and of course, they're all some form of Optimus Prime/Convoy. Tune in to the right frequency below, and click on any of the images to view the full galleries for Convoy, Optimus Prime, and Exile Perfect Year 2008 Convoy, as they all reuse the original Generation 1 Optimus toy in white and light blue, darker shades of blue and red, and red and orange respectively, and a new, bizarre headsculpt. Also included are comparisons to the their first mold, and other Music Label figures. Check them out!

I always hated Primes original head. I much prefer the device label version. Shame it's ridiculously priced.

That music label Optimus; with the new head; looks amazing. Even though he's a g1 toy, he looks fantastic with the new head.

The G1 version is on my "Holy Grail" figures list. =P~ I want him bad, but that price tag is so steep. Plus I'd have to buy a converter so I could actually use it (which is one of the reasons I want him so bad).

Are you located in the US? I'm pretty sure he came with two chargers ... one European and one US one. If it didn't, then I just used a US adapter so that it would work. If you look at all of the images in the gallery, you'll find the ones where he is indeed working. Their speakers were playing whatever music was on the iPods, all Transformers related. I had a lot of fun with these galleries. My only regret is that it took me about 3 years to crop these photos and get them up on the site. They're done now for all to enjoy!

Just a question Ryan. I own the G1 colors of iPod Optimus. As you know, the entire surface is painted with a coat of glossy paint. Is it the same for the White version? On the paint coat I mean.
Always wanted to use the white version for UM but did nt bite 'cause I had no use for two speakers.


This guy btw (Optimus G1 colors) was being sold for a song a couple of years ago, less than the regular price of a Masterpiece car.

Hot on the heels of the Masterpiece MP-27 Ironhide gallery, we are proud to present galleries for Encore Emergency Green Ratchet, Encore Protection Black Ironhide, Encore Ratchet, Encore Ironhide and Dark of the Moon Cannon Force Ironhide.

Encore Emergency Green Ratchet was released in 2008 as a Japanese mail away exclusive to those that purchased the Transformers Visualworks book. The green deco is an homage to the way Ratchet looked in the live action movies. ¹

Encore Protection Black Ironhide was also released in 2008 as an New Years Specail e-HOBBY redeco. The included bio states that the black coating was to help hide Ironhide from his enemies. There is a bit of a debate to whether this deco was an homage to the Diaclone toy or to the the way Ironhide appeared in the live action movies. ²

Encore Ratchet is a 2007 reissue in the TakaraTomy Encore line. These versions of the toy came with cardboard cut-outs of the robot head to help emulate the look of the original TV series. The weapons platform also has some retooled clips to help Ratchet stay connected. ¹

Encore Ironhide is a 2007 reissue in the TakaraTomy Encore line. Much like the 2007 Encore Ratchet, this version of Ironhide also comes with the cardboard robot head cut-outs and the weapons platform retooling. ²

Dark of the Moon Cannon Force Ironhide is a 2011 G1 inspired redeco of the Dark of the Moon Voyager Class Ironhide. ³

A few days ago we brought you a gallery of the recently released Combiner Wars Sky Lynx. Now it is time to take a look at the G1 version, the Encore release anyway. Sky Lynx was one of those molds that Hasbro licensed from other companies. In this case the company was Toybox which is also where Omega Supreme came from. This Encore release is the first time G1 Sky Lynx was available in Japan.

What are the differences between the vintage version and Encore you ask?

  • Red Plastic is darker on Encore, lighter on G1
  • White plastic is off white, whereas G1 version is brighter white
  • Metal screws and rivets have gold tint on Encore instead of silver on G1
  • Mouth gun is painted a dark magenta or purple color, which is red on G1
  • Inside of mouth is painted red on Encore
  • Eyes of Lynx mode are now painted light blue
  • Gold chrome is lighter or a more subtle shade on Encore, darker on G1
  • Stickered "windows" on left rear side of shuttle was corrected to have circle removed finally!
  • Toybox stampings replaced with Tomy 2007 stampings
