Just lucked up and got the *last* Thundercracker on Amazon.com. (Whew) These things restock and sell out quick!

While I passed on the Rainmakers and Redwing, I was always going to get the O.G. Three. Looks like I'll have a break while I wait on Impactor and Mirage to be in stock.

And here in Canada, we are still stuck at Wave One. :HEADHURTS:

We've had wave 2 for a while now.


My local TrU have just barely begun getting Wave 2 deluxes and voyagers. There was so much Wave 1... As for my local Walmart, they are up-to-date with Siege Wave 2, but they barely keep any stock.

At least EB Games have plenty of Ratchets.

I LOVE his looks and the fact that he basically transform like a Go-Bots.
We sure came a long way since 30 years!

I don't think he's part of a "wave", being an exclusive and all. But yeah, this mold is fantastic in it's simplicity.

Plus, Six-Gun is the PERFECT partner for Ratchet!

Random: What are some of your favorite blast effects to bot combinations? I prefer Aimless' squiggly effects on Starscream. Blowpipe's and Firedrive's look great with just about anyone.

So, fun fact: the 5 seekers I currently own all color match Voltron! Pretty bizarre coincidence, but really cool. So I decided to try combining the 5 seekers into a Seeker-tron, and it didn't go to well

also, Battlemasters make fairly decent combiner weapons

New Images of Transformers Siege Optimus Prime and Megatron 35th Anniversary Cell Shaded Versions

Postby Stargrave » Sat Sep 07, 2019 7:59 am

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Fellow Seibertronian Powermaster Ultra Prime has shared a bevy of cell shaded War for Cybertron Siege Optimus Prime images with us. There are many images of this figure floating around on the inter-webs out there but these give an excellent view of how the cell shading works in some natural lighting. Also of note is how good it looks when mowing down an army of Decepticons. Kind of hard to argue that one.

We also have some more professionally photographed comparison shots of Siege Optimus and Megatron side by side with their cell shaded versions. Although not naturally lit these also show off how that cell shading works so well in some poses, but maybe not so much in others. These images come to us from Facebook user Masterandy's Kindergarten FB Branch. It is amazing the action poses you can get the Siege figures into.

Well, what do you think Seibertronians? Are these the faction commanders you've been waiting for or are the initial Siege releases of Optimus and Megatron your favorites? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Not bad! For the price point that's quite nice, more shading so they look like poseable DYRL cels would be cool but that would drive the cost up further, not to mention increase the risk of paint errors. Yep, these are awesome.
