Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, TF-fan kev777, has let us know that Hasbro Pulse has added new listings, though one is a bit strange as you'll see.

The first comes as no surprise as it's Takara Tomy's Generations Selects Abominus, now given the number TTGS-05 which had caused some speculation in the past as to who this registry belonged to.

TTGS-05 Abominus

Transformers News: Takara Tomy Generations Selects Abominus and Takara Tomy Netflix Soundblaster on Hasbro Pulse

The second one is the surprise as it's the recently announced Takara Tomy Netflix Transformers Soundblaster, but Hasbro are selling it under their Generations Selects label instead!

TTGS-12 Soundblaster

Transformers News: Takara Tomy Generations Selects Abominus and Takara Tomy Netflix Soundblaster on Hasbro Pulse

Abominus is a redeco of his Power of the Primes self with new weapons and a new accessory that forms a shield for Hun-Gurr and a animation accurate breastplate for Abominus.

Soundblaster is a redeco of the Siege Voyager Class Soundwave mold but is coloured like his appearance in Netflix's Transformers War for Cybertron Siege cartoon, complete with Mercenary faction symbol on his chest.

Will you be preordering these? What do you think of them? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

According to Pulse, God Neptune is expected to ship 10/24, just 15 days from now. Now of course, I expect the inevitable delay as all other TT GS have had. However...I do find it odd that there has been no early reviews online, or pics of the packaging etc... this supposedly close to the release.

TT-GS Super Megs got pushed back 2 months, so I'm expecting the same for God Neptune.

Correct, but I believe there were pics and early reviews of it, as was the case with other TT Select.

Doing a quick search (I may be incorrect), but PrimevsPrime seems to have has the first video review of Super Megatron on September 1, original release date was around 10/1, and got pushed back to 12/1 on Pulse (though other sites are getting it, the norm for TT selects).

By my estimation then, one would think someone should have come out with a review of God Neptune by now..., unless there are some major delays happening (i.e. more than 2 months).

Minor correction. Takara is selling Soundblaster as a normal Siege toy, not a Netflix toy (that previous news story was posted in the Netflix thread instead of the Siege thread).

I was honestly asking... So that price really doesn't make sense.
I do prefer less of the battle damage paint apps, but no way is that worth $43+.

He isn't if you have the original but this is actually cheaper than trying to find the 35th Anniversary Soundblaster on eBay, cheapest you'll find is $48 plus almost another $10 for shipping and it ain't even new.

Below is a new review from Kremzeek reviews where they review the upcoming 2 pack and compare it with Sunstreaker. You will find under that video all the info you need regarding this pack including where you can order it and how much it costs.





Transformers Generations Selects Deluxe Spinout and Cordon 2-Pack $39.99
http://q.entertainmentearth.com/?l=1wn8gj

A pre-G1 classic! The Transformers Generations Selects Deluxe Spinout and Cordon 2-Pack draws inspiration from classic Diaclone toys released before the original Transformers toy line from Hasbro. The white Cordon and the red Spinout are ready for battle against the Decepticons as some of the elite Autobot warriors that just never quite made it into their biggest adventures. These WFC-GS20 Cordon and Autobot Spin-Out figures are Hasbro's first U.S. release of the characters. These characters are based on two of the original Takara Tomy Diaclone figures. Originally, the Spin-Out Diaclone was redeo'd yellow and released as Sunstreaker, now a Sunstreaker figure returns the favor. WFC-GS20 set designed for ages 8 and up.

These WFC-GS20 Cordon and Autobot Spin-Out figures are our first U.S. release of the characters. Paying homage to the OGs of converting toys, these characters are based on two of the original Takara Tomy Diaclone figures. Originally, the Spin-Out Diaclone was redeo'd yellow and released as Sunstreaker, now a Sunstreaker figure returns the favor. Cordon and Autobot Spin-out figures both convert from robot to sportscar modes in 16 steps and each figure comes with a blaster accessory that attach to the figures in robot and sportscar modes. Includes Generations Selects Deluxe Class Cordon and Autobot Spin-out figure, 2 accessories, and instructions.

But if you don't get him, you can't join the Takara Elite where the exact same toys with slightly different paint jobs are at least twice as good as the same toys you can get for half.

Yeah, I wasn't being a jackass, I was honestly answering. The Pulse write-up specifically states he doesn't come with the cassettes. I should said "NArrator Voice: He does not."

It's an import, not a Hasbro piece, so it gets the equivalent to the Japanese price of ¥4,950. It's the same reason why the Selects combiners aren't $110.

And yes, I ordered both Soundblaster and the Terrorcons. :HEADHURTS:

I guess that makes sense. I have a buddy trying to sell me the OG Terrorcons for like 20 bucks, so I'm gonna skip that one.

No it's all good... I was making sure I wasn't coming off as a jackass...
I do have the original... I got him from Walmart when he was just over $22.
Definitely will not get this Takara version, because there are plenty of other figures on the horizon I'm actually excited about (I just posted about my love for SS86 Scourge, and the possibility of getting 3 of those).
But I'm still tempted by that Abominus set!!

They are a sure buy for me! And when paired up with Sunstreaker next to the Datsun brothers it will be sweetness all around...'nuff said! ;)^ :VEHI:

The diaclone duo is a want but I'm not paying £10 more over two seperate selects deluxes just to have them.

Cosplayer looks better for having an undamaged chest and I dont mind it not being black with it not really being Soundblaster but it's not worth the price to me when I'd struggle to justify earthmode Soundwave with cassettes (Ravage is pretty much just chest filler) at the same price.

Greetings Seibertronians! We've got two video reviews to share with you all today, both covering the same figure, the forthcoming Transformers Generations Selects Bugbite!

The first is a review from fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime.



The second is a review from new YouTube toy reviewer, The Mr Stan Show.



Generations Selects Bugbite is a redeco of Earthrise Deluxe Class Cliffjumper with Bumblebee's head. He's also sporting the Mercenary badge. This marks the second time that Cliffjumper served as the basis of a Selects figure, following Hubcap who also uses a different head.

What do you think of this toy? Do you have a preorder in for this hired gun? Or do you still wish that they had redeco'ed Bumblebee completely, keeping the VW like alt mode? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I pre-ordered Mercenary Soundblaster tonight, decided I wanted the 3rd and for the moment final Mercenary toy. It'll be fun to get him and experience the mold in this way.

I am of the opinion that Bugbite is worthless and will remain worthless until a conversion kit comes out. Or unless, miracle of miracles, Hasbro recalls the existing run and redoes him with the Bumblebee version of the mold. The version they should have used in the first place.

I'm going to be negative and uncompromising about this, and here's why:

His name is Bugbite. There's at least 10x the wordplay of Bumblebee's name baked into that. Hasbro should have used the Bumblebee version of the mold, dug out the Classics mold and rehashed G.O.D. Bugbite (at Voyager price if need be), or just not bloody bothered. Because with that name, he needs to be a VW Bug, whether licensed or genericized. The Cliffjumper version of the mold is neither, so this is a complete and total waste of plastic. I'd rather buy an incomplete Armada Side Swipe at WFC Leader price, than this excuse for Bugbite.
