A blast from the recent past to kick off the weekend - before Combiner Wars, there was just Generations, and you might remember the Asian market exclusive GDO Legend Class figures for Thundercracker, Bluestreak, Hoist and Motormaster Motorbreath. And even if you don't, Seibertron.com brings you their galleries, viewable by clicking on any of the images below.

Take some time to savour the changes in character updates over just a couple of years, with Thundercracker soon to see its full release in Leader Class form, Motormaster part of wave 2 of Combiner Wars, Hoist already a Generations Deluxe and Bluestreak appearing in the Masterpiece line, by comparing the new galleries to the links we just provided.

Ryan's just one guy doing this, so he needs the time to do all of it, and tends to put up galleries of figures when they become relevant. My guess is that these went up now to build anticipation toward a forthcoming gallery of Leader Thundercracker.

Actually this is the real reason ... https://www.facebook.com/Seibertron/photos/a.10152944816365070.1073741843.14462290069/10153311896540070/?type=1&theater

I keep putting off the GDO figures thinking that I want to do a group shot with all of them but just haven't been able to find the time to do all of them at one time. So I decided to forego the group shot of all of the GDO figures so that I can get them up finally. With Legion Skywarp just coming out, it seemed silly to put his gallery up but still not have Thundercracker posted. I have probably well over a hundred or more Legions/Legends/Cyberverse that need proper galleries up. The good news is that I can knock them out quickly ... I did 20 Legions/Legends/EZ galleries on Thursday this past week so we'll be seeing them pop up from time-to-time.

I love the Legion/Cyberverse scale too for some reason. They're some of my favorite Transformers from the past decade. Just fun little figures. My biggest gripe with them are the lack of weapons. I really wish they would all have weapons. I didn't realize until I did the GDO galleries that the guns for Bluestreak and Hoist were molded after their G1 weapons. Nice that someone is paying attention to small details like that.

I also really want to see the Seeker mold done as Ramjet, Thrust and Dirge. It'd be nice if they had their appropriate wings/weapons, but I think at this price scale I'd be fine with them just using the same mold since you can make them into coneheads. To me, that is the most defining feature of those 3 characters. I'll also take a Smokescreen from the Prowl mold, and I'm sure we can think of some creative uses for other ones. It'd be great if they would come up with a mold that would accommodate Wheeljack and Tracks robot/vehicle modes so that there was another body style that could be used for repaint potential.

A comprehensive Beast Wars Cyberverse line is also in the top 10 of my want list, complete with the show characters and any easy repaints they can make along the way.

I got Thundercraker and Motorbreathwith the GDO G2 set, they are wonderful figures, with the rerelease of RTS Legends Starscream and the upcoming legion Skywarp, I might finally complete a Seeker Trio! :D
Now, I wonder if they'll ever release that mold in Acid Storm's deco, he got a Legends AND A FRIGGIN' MASTERPIECE! One can dream, right? :P

TC has such a wicked little smirk. I nabbed Starscream the other day from Big Lots on a whim. He's a fun little guy. I also noticed he can become a cone head. How frightening would it be to see a jet with that face just looking down at you? Assuming it was either parked or hovering?

Motorbreath plays the role of tiny Nemesis Prime on my shelf.

Here is a new gallery for you all, of Takara's version of Combiner Wars Megatron: Transformers Legends LG-13 Megatron.

In it you will find comparison shots to the Hasbro deco, showing the differences (some more subtle than others) between both figures. Generally, as per usual, Takara has chosen to go more toon accurate with its deco, replacing a lot of red parts with silver. Another interesting bit is that this is the very first Takara Legends figure to be packaged in robot mode. Enjoy!

I would love to see more galleries from Takara's United/Generations line.
Seeing United Megatron reminded me of how good Takara repaints can be.

So Seibertron, it appears you prefer his cannon backwards as well? I like the look of that end better, but I don't like how it seems a little stubby. I'm constantly flipping it back and forth depending on which way I look at it.

To me, this guy doesn't look much better than the original.

I think that the Hasbro one looks better. The extra red adds contrast and breaks up all of the silver.

I'm all about the Takara deco. I have the Hasbro version, but Takara's just reeks of G1-esque goodness.

All I want at this point is a cannon cover, whichever version one prefers...

An added bonus is that Takara's Legends LG13 Megatron actually is the (Japanese) G1 cartoon Megatron in yet another new (post-G2) body.

The difference is so minimal, nothing wrong with the Takara one but I like my Hasbro one just fine.

The silver paint on the Hasbro version is a darker shade than the Takara version. The Hasbro version photographs better because of this (at least with my lighting setup). The only thing I really like better on the Takara version is that the shoulders and neck don't use the red plastic, which really irks me on the Hasbro version. I really wish Hasbro and Takara had figured out something with his knees so that he could do some better action poses than, well, just standing there basically.

Just got mine, and aside from the minor paint differences, the articulation works better on Takara's, the fists and the head are not terribly hard to rotate, which scared me about the Combiner Wars version, The CW version is very stiff and it feels like you're about to break it, particularly the fists, on the down side the chest doesn't peg in as firmly as the CW one, less prone to brake, but I like the pegs on the chest better on the CW one, maybe that's just my Takara Megs, I owned the CW and then sold it in favor of Takara's and so far that's the one other difference I found between the 2.
