Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Discussion Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I honestly have zero interest toward Thundercracker. Maybe if they make a SkyWarp I'll get interested.

Springer looks really cool. It's really nice seeing this guy after all these years. I may get him.

Red Alert looks cool. I don't need him. What I'd like to see is a Siege Sunstreaker. The combiner Wars one was a little lame and certainly didn't remind me of the actual character.

The Leader Optimus Prime looks super cool, and I'm getting this guy for sure. I love the homage to cybertron/Galaxyforce. Both modes look solid. Prime having yellow eyes is also a nice touch.

Ah yes, the very rare actual tranformation of a Transformer in MTMTE. Still, an actual Hasbro licensed toy is probably going to turn some heads, seeing as how this is one has several 3P versions already.

It's not really Tarn, as it's just Shockwaves password, as it's Tarn as in the city, not the character.

Astrotrain doesn't thrill me. I'll have to wait and see what he looks like to decide if he's going to replace the CW Astrotrain.

Springer I might get. I really like the Generations Springer, but the new one also looks good, and the new mold would further separate him from Sandstorm, as good of a retool as that was.

Hasbro is really making me think with some of these. :-?

Astrotrain sounds cool. I don't know if he's a must have though.

Thanks for the heads up! I might go buy both now if I can find them for a decent price.

There’s been 2 Springer figures in 6 years. Hardly overdoing it.



Plus we’ve pretty much gotten everybody except autobot Targetmasters and a few headmasters. It’s not like there’s that many left to modernize. Literally 13 years of CHUG. It’s lasted longer than the original G1 run.

The well is drained clean.

But it is funny to hear people say “another of this character?” When a couple years ago people were throwing hissy fits that’ characters were being made into headmasters saying “that character isn’t a headmaster. Why are they doing this?”



3 Springers actually (4 if you count botcon)

Meanwhile
No Deluxe Insecticons (except Chopshop)
No Autobot Targetmasters
No Hubcap
No Throttlebots except Chase
No Triggerbots
No Omnibots
No Seacons
No Pretender Monsters

There’s actually been 1 unique Springer in the 6 years. There’s been 4 since 2007 and 2 of them weren’T triple changers. So, as I said, a new Springer is hardly overdoing it.

I'm not talking about Unique Springers, I'm talking about Springers period.

The point is, when it comes to new figures (either repaints or new molds) they keep going to the same well of characters. If there's another character you'd like a toy, ANY toy of, you're beat because we need Jetfire number 4 and Hot Rod number 6.

And yes, we already had one unique Springer in addition to the other Springers that everyone loved. Did we get even one unique of the guys I mentioned above? Even a repaint?

You need to realize this line isn’t Star Wars. A character who got 3 frames in Rebirth Pt 1 is not nearly as we’ll known as a main character from the ‘86 movie. Hasbro likes their deep cuts, but they also have to make money.

Yeah, I get that. I also know, that they might make a little more money, if they didn't pad a line with 75% characters people already have and may not buy a 3rd version of. People loved new arrivals like Cog and Brunt. Kids don't care either way (They're not the ones clamoring for yet another Springer and Jetfire) We already got out mainstays to every line like Optimus and Bumblebee and Megatron, they can diversify things up a little more than Prowl number 4

We did get a Cyberverse Guzzle in the DoTM line. It was an entirely new mold.

Also Hasbro just started doing Micromasters again and we have little to no idea who they'll make next, and while I doubt every character will get a new toy, most of them will.

Springer is a popular character who hasn't gotten a new toy since Generations, so of course they'd make a new one.

I agree we should get seacons.

But in all honesty how many people actually remember or care about the omnibots or most of the characters in your list? Not many. Infact they were lucky enough to even get toys in the alternators line at all. I never even heard of them untill I got this ultimate collectors book.

The point is, when it comes to new figures (either repaints or new molds) they keep going to the same well of characters. If there's another character you'd like a toy, ANY toy of, you're beat because we need Jetfire number 4 and Hot Rod number 6.

And yes, we already had one unique Springer in addition to the other Springers that everyone loved. Did we get even one unique of the guys I mentioned above? Even a repaint?



You need to realize this line isn’t Star Wars. A character who got 3 frames in Rebirth Pt 1 is not nearly as we’ll known as a main character from the ‘86 movie. Hasbro likes their deep cuts, but they also have to make money.


We did get a Cyberverse Guzzle in the DoTM line. It was an entirely new mold.

Also Hasbro just started doing Micromasters again and we have little to no idea who they'll make next, and while I doubt every character will get a new toy, most of them will.

Springer is a popular character who hasn't gotten a new toy since Generations, so of course they'd make a new one.

I agree we should get seacons.

But in all honesty how many people actually remember or care about the omnibots or most of the characters in your list? Not many. Infact they were lucky enough to even get toys in the alternators line at all. I never even heard of them untill I got this ultimate collectors book.


I have absolutely nothing to contribute appart adding to that crazy-ass quote chain! :DANCE:

There’s been 2 Springer figures in 6 years. Hardly overdoing it.



Plus we’ve pretty much gotten everybody except autobot Targetmasters and a few headmasters. It’s not like there’s that many left to modernize. Literally 13 years of CHUG. It’s lasted longer than the original G1 run.

The well is drained clean.

But it is funny to hear people say “another of this character?” When a couple years ago people were throwing hissy fits that’ characters were being made into headmasters saying “that character isn’t a headmaster. Why are they doing this?”



3 Springers actually (4 if you count botcon)

Meanwhile
No Deluxe Insecticons (except Chopshop)
No Autobot Targetmasters
No Hubcap
No Throttlebots except Chase
No Triggerbots
No Omnibots
No Seacons
No Pretender Monsters
Lotta pretenders missing

Well I did find out finally via e-mail that apparently with Pulse, Paypal only works for items in stock (cant be used on Pre-orders). I just didn't want to pay via a credit card because I don't like charges dangling on for unknown periods of time. Some companies charge you right away, others wait until the item is in stock, there is no consistency, and I don't like having to remember that *X* amount could be randomly charged to my card at any moment.

I'm gonna guess either the pre-orders being for april 1, or that the deluxe prices have gone back up, or some wayward bug rained on his parade :-?
