    Let's kick off the weekend with the latest update to our Transformers Toy Galleries, courtesy of our very own Soundwave.CA!

    First up, we have a detailed look at the E-Hobby Shop Exclusive Rijie Feat Ford GT Electro Disruptor Version.

    Next, we have extensive galleries of two Target Exclusives - check out our pictures of Evolution of a Hero - Bumblebee Two Pack and Robovision Optimus Prime.

    Continuing on our theme of Transformers Movie related galleries, we also have extensive shoots of Voyager Class Megatron, Dreadwing, Swindle, Real Gear Meantime and Real Gear Zoom Out 25X. To top it all off, we also have a X-Mods Barricade gallery.

    In addition to all the Transformers Movie shoots, Sol Fury has been digging in his toybox and given us a series of galleries of the 1992 Autobot gun nuts, the Turbomasters (or Cannonmasters in some parts of Europe). Check out our exclusive photoshoots of Scorch, Boss, Flash, Hurricane, Rotorstorm and Thunderclash!

    Don't forget to check out the rest of our gallery for many more Transformers images.

    European TF's represent! A while back I submitted galleries for Pyro and Clench. This was back in the days when I still had free time. :(

    Clench, you lucky guy! I only just managed to hunt down a Pyro, I'm still looking for Clench! His brief cameo in Megatron Origin makes me want him all the more!

    It's a running change I believe that was introduced into the production line when they were making these. I'll have to check mine to see if he's got them - I think the single ones here are all post-change.

    i've never heard of the turbomasters. they look great aside from the bright colors that plagued G2. scorch's robot head reminds me of armada red alert. i don't think i've ever seen machine wars prime in the mold's original colors. nice work gentlemen!

    Thanks guys! They're some TFs who are very close to my heart, and I had a real blast photographing them.

    Turbomasters! :D  Flash was one of my final childhood TF purchases (the yellow Long Haul without Devastator parts was the last, September 1992) so it's good to see that guy get some love at last.

    Someone once told me that the word Ginrai when translated to English means Thunderclash. Anyone able to verify that as being true ? cos if it is then the Turbomaster's name is a cool nod to the earlier Japanese toy.

    I've got a Pyro trailder sitting in the spares box that needs the robot/front half of the fire truck to go with it.

    And that's cheating a bit giving Thunderclash Rodimus's flame weapon. Didn't he have a gun of his own ?

    Hmm, well, "rai" means "lighting" or "thunder", can anyone confirm the "gin" part?

    My Palm's Dokusha Japanese-to-english dictionary translates it as Thunderclap.

    Jinrai = じんらい = 迅雷

    So glad to get galleries of stuff that has been on sale for months now, wish they were availablel before they went on sale to the public with a review to find out if they were worth getting.

    Thunderclash does have a gun but it's made of that infamous gold plastic so it's very easy to break. The peg on mine snapped off years ago. He also has a blue trailer door for the back of the truck that becomes a platform for him to stand on to use of the defense tower.
