With the great Age of Extinction still upon us, let's take a few steps in time and revisit some Generation One Encore reissues! Today's subjects are Autobots Trailbreaker and Hoist! Notable differences between the original pair and the Encore pair include cartoon-accurate visors on the Encore pair, as opposed to the red visor seen on the original Trailbreaker and yellow on the original Hoist. As usual, view the preliminary images below, and if your interest has been piqued, view the full gallery of each figure by clicking on any of their images or links!

Great pictures. Hoist and Trailbreaker are some of my favorite G1. I love how each Encore has small changes compared to the original like eye color. Was the future of Encores mentioned at Botcon?

Encore is Takara's thing. BotCon only announces Hasbro's stuff.

Bit of trivia with the Encore Trailbreaker and Hoist galleries ... no box pics because they were ruined in the flood 3 years ago. :(

Seibertron.com is proud to present our two newest galleries: New Galleries: Manga Compilation Lucky Draw Black Tracks and Transformers Collection Tracks

First up, Manga Complilation Lucky Draw Black Tracks. This gorgeous redeco of the G1 favorite just stands out amongst the collection and draws your attention. (Guess that's why they call them Lucky Draws? ;) )

And the second of our galleries is the original, the one and only, G1 Tracks. Flame hood deco and all, this classy blue Corvette turns into the classy Autobot with the voice so ritzy, you'd swear he was wearing an ascot!

You can see the full galleries for each figure by clicking their respective images below:

I'd love if they gave it an anime face like they did with encore bumblebee.

I'd love to see this mold repainted as Backstreet, Freeway and the Battlechargers.

I was able to snag the Invasion bagged set during the Club's recent sale, and was going to sell the couple I don't need. I have one more reason to keep SG Tracks now...

Looking at these, I'm wondering- Is there ever going to be a Skids and Screech gallery?

It makes me oddly satisfied to have Classics Crosscut and Road Rage on my shelves.

Today we have a set of galleries seven years in the making, due to their continuity and toyline issues in terms of categorisation: feast your eyes on Generation 1 1988 Headmasters and Masterforce Headmaster Juniors. These new additions to Seibertron.com's repository feature a number of repurposed US releases, including Cab, Wilder, Bullhorn and Cancer, along with Go-Shooter and updated Minerva with her Transtector. Why have both the US and the Japan releases all in the same group shots and comparisons, you ask? Well, they're such a small exception to the rule where the character is the same toy, and yet so radically different - this was the best way to handle them.

You may recognise this rationale from the Japanese Generations book from 2001, in which the same shots were used of toys who were different characters under Takara than they were for Hasbro, specifically the Headmaster Juniors and the Seacons. What really changes are the poses, but the figure is the same. But why not check it out for yourself by clicking on any of the images below?

i remember these guys and the 2nd batch of targetmasters not enthralling me as a kid. You know you'd spend hours perusing the catalogues eying potential acquisitions... that year wasn't my favourite.. pretenders were sucky too for me... think the powermasters were the only subgroup from that year I drooled over.

I have squeezeplay though and he had good articulation and i think he's one of the few from my collection that is almost intact.

Technically, the little Headmaster dude for Goshooter is named "Shūta Gō", unless it was intentional to parse his name in the Japanese order of "last name first, first name last".

Monster robots who's heads pop off and turn into little robots (one of which appears to be a fly-man hybrid)... oh how I wish these would get a modern update.

Hell, I'd settle for reissues... of any Headmaster. (Including Juniors.)

Given the recent release and coverage of the latest Takara Tomy offering in the Masterpiece line - MP-22 Ultra Magnus - here at Seibertron.com we've taken the opportunity to look back on some older toys deserving of gallery treatment: the G1 Reissue Ultra Magnus, Movie Preview Version Ultra Magnus and Matrix Glow (Shining) Magnus!

All three appear in 2000/2001, sharing the same basic mold (the classic Diaclone redeco of Powered Convoy) with an Optimus Prime/Convoy basic robot-truck, and a trailer that becomes its armour. What the Reissue differed in from the original toy was mostly in the package, and included all the same accessories, from guns to missile launcher to fists. The other two, however, while coming with all the same parts, showed off very different decos (as you can see below): 'Shining' Magnus in its yellow translucent plastic, was somehow meant to show the Matrix glowing moment at the death of Optimus Prime in the 1986 movie, and the Movie Preview Magnus was a nod to promotional material of the animated feature, showing the red, black and blue deco (like its Diaclone predecessor) to the character rather than its final colours. Find out more about them in the galleries by clicking on the images below!
