Opportunities are always around the corner, the Toy Gallery section just took advantage of one to add a few old pieces. As you might remember, a Vector Prime was released under Universe earlier this year. Another set containing a recolored Vector Prime was released during the Cybertron toy line as a Toys R" Us exclusive. In that set was the only Voyager class release of Starscream in Cybertron.

Does anyone else think Hasbro should repaint that Starscream mold into Ramjet next? If you use TRU Starscream as Thrust, and if you have Universe Dirge, Ramjet would complete the trio!

Yeah, I've thought this for awhile. Especially since they came out with the Legends class versions. One day ... maybe in Classics 3.0.

I updated the story to include Safeguard. Thanks for posting this update.

Working on getting Roadbuster and Dirge up next. Should be up tomorrow or Saturday.

I took this opportunity to finally add the pictures of Inferno in the box that I had sitting on my computer.

I also moved all of the Classics 2.0 galleries to the correct series. Most of them were previously listed under the first Classics series instead prior to tonight.

Excellent galleries!

While that is a mighty fine deco on Screamer, it just ain't Starscream. I consider myself pretty lucky to have picked up Galaxy Force Starscream. It obviously makes a great Cybertron Thrust, of course.

That's a pretty decent deco on VP too, though it might do with a few more paint apps.

Man! As always the galleries are awesome and i wish i was collecting Transformers during the Cybertron toy line, instead i was hitting up rare and exclusive Starwar figures and vehicles. The more and more i see the Cybertron toyline the more i want them, but i'm a little too later on that. Oh well, I still have a LARGE amount of G1 stuff, The first transformer movie toyline, the ROTF and my favorite TRU 2.0 line!!! I hope to see TRU 3.0.

Oddly enough, I keep looking at that Starcsream mold and keep thinking it would make a good Blitzwing.

I got mine from HTS, and that's the only one I ever saw in person until I saw Counterpunch's.

I've still got to get myself a GF Starscream.

To tell the truth, Cybertron is one of my favorite series. C'mon, it was top notch, you have to admit it. When compared to Arm. and En., it quite frankly blows them out of the water. Sadly, I have no Cybertron toys, except for a Movie repaint (Grindcore), and a Classic Legends (Optimus).

EDIT: Just reviewed my collection, and I have Cybertron Scattorshot and Brushguard.

He hit my local TRU for the first time about a month ago, along with Inferno. I got Inferno in the summer, thanks to a work purchase that had a damaged box! I picked up VP or The Last Autobot, as I think of this deco, when I saw them at TRU a while back. I think Exton TRU still has one of each, come to think of it.

I found Vector Prime recently and bought him cause he is different. But I swear I never heard of this guy. (I do not read comic books) They should have just released him as Alpha Trion like the mold was originally designed for. Im sure there is enough leftover pink and purple paint from the girls toy section of the Hasbro factory to make this happen. When was this red Starscream released ? The last Toys R Us Cybertron Starscream was too big and cost 50 bucks so I passed it up. When was this released and is it available now in stores ???

Also, whats up with the insecticons ??? I went to Toys r Us last week with a printout from their website. The manager looked into the computer and told me they have not been released yet...

Here's a little refresher course, wait, make that two courses:

- Vector Prime was a major player in the Cybertron series, as a guardian of time and space during Primus' slumber. The Universe series pays tribute to all series mind you, not just G1 and G2. He was already repainted and retooled into Alpha Trion for BotCon 2007, check the Gallery :). One last thing: check the Marvel comics again, Vector Prime's basic mold is an homage to The Last Autobot.
- The Supreme Starscream was basic retail. The Toys 'R Us exclusive Voyager Starscream with the colors inverted was available during the Cybertron line (see the packaging).

Oh I see. I had seen the Alpha Trion Gallery browsing and thought it was the original design for the mold. I was wondering where was his musatache and beard. I never had a chance to explore the Cybertron line because when I started collecting after the first movie, most of this line was not in stores except a few scout class figures from the now closed Kay-Bee. I wish I had known about the red Starscream whenn it was out cause I did by the Target exclusives Dirge/Roadbuster set which I thought was designed for the classics Universe series. Thanks for letting me know about Vector, I buy many figures that I know little about just because I think they look cool :D

You're very welcome :) Just keep in mind this rule of thumb: if it's an exclusive, it's a repaint. ;)

Soon after the last batch of figures seen here for the Toy Gallery section, two more have joined the galleries on Seibertron.com. Released as Target exclusives last year, Roadbuster and Dirge were added to the Universe line-up as redecos of Cybertron Voyager Starscream and Cybertron "Cybertron Defense" Hotshot.

I waited for these to go on clearance at my Target then missed em completely...I'm sooooo depressed now; they are great repaints

Normally I don't go for the repaints, but I am REALLY diggin' Roadbuster. I like the mold and the color scheme...I may just have to pick this one up. :-?

I picked up a loose and complete Dirge a while ago and I love the figure. :)
