Transformers News: Transformers Earthrise Target Exclusive Decepticon Clones Two Pack Found At US Retail

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!

Well, Kapow and ID Toys have removed their listings for the Seeker two-pack pre-order (out of stock). Both still have the Clones though.

£26.97 - Kapow

Dosen't surprise me. Megatron/Galvatron has always been at odds with Scorponok in pretty much every continuity. Any uneasy alliance usually breaks down quickly for a showdown of Leadership. Makes me hope the 3rd WFC line is more futuristic (focus on more 87'-90' Characters, as well as Victory etc...), and we can give Optimus and Megatron a well deserved rest.

The only time that wasn't the case was in The Rebirth. Wherein it was unclear if Scorponok had an identity of his own.

He did still bicker with Lord Zarak, who was the most important part of that version of Scorponok.

Eeyup. And in fact, that was what they were doing at the end: arguing over who was in charge.

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.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -WonkoTheSane-, has let us know that Takara Tomy have released new images of Earthrise Deluxe Class Arcee (with Cyberverse Deluxe Class Arcee posing as well) and Earthrise Deluxe Class Trailbreaker! These are being used to promote the toys for the Japanese releases. It should be noted that while Arcee will see a retail release in Japan, Trailbreaker is instead a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive, joining an ever growing amount of Earthrise that is exclusive.

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!

Still happy with my 2014 Arcee; thin-feeling plastic, yes, but she comes with more gear and she doesn’t partsform. If they did another character from the new one like the Paradron Medic or something I’d be down, but otherwise pass for me.

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

Regardless of aesthetic differences, Cyberverse Arcee manages to be better than ER Arcee.

ER Arcee should have died on the drawing board. That needlessly unintegrated transformation... Ugh. All you had to do was give us "T30 Arcee but with ankle tilts and 5mm hands", HasTak. That or a headmaster version... Not a foolhardy attempt at downscaling the already-questionable MP design. Whoever let this filth proceed past the sketch stage should be demoted to copyboy. It's of course too late to axe the abominable waste of plastic and molds now.. maybe at least it'll get vandalized in stores instead of bought?

Trailbreaker is good though, looking forward to him.

I know it's been mentioned already ad nauseam since ER Arcee's reveal, but G1 Arcee really is just a BAD design that shouldn't still be getting use if this is what it results in. The IDW comics did multiple G1 Arcee designs that had actual kibble integration, and some even had actual Earth modes, Hasbro should either use those or just make Prime Arcee their "Evergreen" Arcee design.

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!

Yeah, and T30 Arcee's integration was also terrible. Earthrise is incrementally worse, but only just.

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.

Her G1 design has been made into a decent toy before:

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.

:roll: 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.

I'm disappointed that both Arcees have their head in one solid color. ER should have at least a pink face while CV should have a white face or a very pale pink.

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

The only parts of her robot mode that are visible in car mode are the chest and the sides of her thighs, and I agree that's better than the ER one, and that the backpack is smaller. But in both T30 and ER, most of the car is stored on the back, I don't know why that provoked eye-rolling, but whatever, different people like different things.

At least her deco will be accurate. No black parts.

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. #-o

That problem was already resolved with the Legends release years ago.

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