The sighting was made by smf2045, over at fellow Transformers fan site, TFW2005. The clones are a repackage of the Titan's Returns molds. The last time these were issued one half of the Decepticon Clones was exclusive to the Siege on Cybertron boxset, while the other was in a two pack with one of the Autobot clones. In Japan, Takara Tomy redeco'd the clones to a more cartoon accurate color scheme and released the clones in their proper pairs. This is the first time since G1 that the Decepticon Clones have been sold in a set together.
Happy hunting everyone!
Do you plan on getting these? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

He did still bicker with Lord Zarak, who was the most important part of that version of Scorponok.AllNewSuperRobot wrote:The only time that wasn't the case was in The Rebirth. Wherein it was unclear if Scorponok had an identity of his own.

Eeyup. And in fact, that was what they were doing at the end: arguing over who was in charge.Sabrblade wrote:He did still bicker with Lord Zarak, who was the most important part of that version of Scorponok.AllNewSuperRobot wrote:The only time that wasn't the case was in The Rebirth.

On top of that, infighting comes naturally to the Decepticons; it's kinda inherent in the "Power at any cost" ideology.
But I am amused at the possibility that Megatron was actually aiming for Optimus (who is, after all, in Scorpy's claw) and missed.

For those in the rest of the world though, Earthrise Arcee is part of the Wave 2 Deluxes and Trailbreaker being part of a future wave.

What do you think of these photos? Which Arcee looks better to you given the ascetic differences? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Happy with Trailbreaker, he’s going to look good with Hoist!

Trailbreaker is good though, looking forward to him.

Scorponok looks great, but I don't buy/have room for Titan figures, and I prefer a comic-sized Scorpy anyway.
Still looking forwards to Airwave and Alicon though!

At the time I thought TR Arcee was an uninspired overuse of Blurr's mold, but now it's my favorite toy version of the character.
All that said, even with both T30 Arcee and TR Arcee, I'm getting ER Arcee anyway. I've been getting pretty much all of the ER releases, and I think she'll fit in well beside Siege Springer and the rest of the animated movie lineup, especially if that group gets filled out through Studio Series.

It is perfectly possible. All they had to do was use the same integration tricks the version they already made used. That was all they needed to do. They've done it before.
But no. No, instead what they tried to do was downscale the MP design (which was already iffy) into a Deluxe. And predictably, it resulted in a trainwreck. Just like the THREE DIFFERENT TIMES they tried downscaling MP-01. You'd think they'd have learned, but apparently not.
And this doesn't even do anything useful (like, say, have a Titan Master head and seat) to make up for the clunk.
They should have known better. They should have done better. They could have done better. They knew how to do better.
And yet, we got this trash.
So AFAIC, ER Arcee's value is equivalent to that of an Armada Side Swipe that's been run over by a truck.
Oh, get real. "Actually integrates the chest and legs into the car" is leagues ahead of "Wears the entire car mode on the back". And T30 Arcee manages to put the unintegrated parts on the back far more compactly.AcademyofDrX wrote:Yeah, and T30 Arcee's integration was also terrible. Earthrise is incrementally worse, but only just.

I can predict that Deluxe Cyberverse Arcee will be the superior toy compared to the Earthrise.

Eh the T30 mold is also a terrible transformer, it's literally just "humanoid female with backpack" and it just really screams that uncomfortable "Japan design" vibe that shouldn't be in a kid's franchise.
It's a fine figure sure and probably the best G1 Arcee figure but it still suffers from the problems that are inherent to that design.
I just can't get over how much I hate that design and how lazy it is, I think it's so bad that the ROTF "mermaid" bike designs are better then the G1 design in every aspect.

The black parts were accurate to the IDW comics, who were big at the T-30 times.
And thanks to the sun, parts of my T-30 Arcee are salmon-orange.

Who would have thought that a Cyberverse figure would be better than it's Generations counterpart?
