Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Discussion Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here.

Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I desperately want a new Generations Drift and/or Deadlock. I keep looking at the secondary market for the original, but the new Flame Toys Furai release should hold me over until we get a new one.



I thought legends-ex (?) Deadlock was steadily availible... at least not nearly as rare as the Windblade et all.

As long as Siege Rumble comes with a box to stand on, out of camera shot, for cartoon accuracy it's all good :) the G1 Tom Cruise.

At a casual glance, Legends-EX Deadlock is around $150. Generations Drift is $50. Both of those are awfully expensive for a Deluxe-class figure, though I've paid $50 for that class before.

I really enjoy the Furai models; otherwise I would probably buy Generations Drift.

It was... when it first came out. Fun Pub had some at about $65, and those lasted all the way up until the TCC Club store had its going-out-of-business sale in 2017, during which all of the Deadlocks saw complete liquidation. By then, other places had either gotten rid of or were likewise selling off the last of their Deadlocks too. Now there's only eBay and other secondary markets to get Deadlock from at exorbitant prices.

Skybite returns with multiple modes in every category, from weaponiser to titan class. No other characters through out the entire years run.

Kind of makes me want a RID/car robots megatron as a titan, because it would be one hell of a big giant hand mode.

It has to be wearable. Like, fabric loops on the back of each limb so you can wear it like a Catcher’s Mitt and just reach down and grab your toys.

Get hyped! Amazon just charged me for the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce and the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron. My order says they'll be "released" on Thursday, August 15 and should be delivered, despite my free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping, on Monday, August 19.

These siege figures are all incredible. I onw both Sideswipe and Optimus Prime now.

Does anyone know if the "battle scars on the figures is handpainted, factory printed or permanent?

I recently received my Optimus (WFC-S11 Voyager) figure from this line and i think his paint on his white thighs is rather uneven and i'm wondering what kind of nail polish remover might work best? Has anyone tried removing these or considered doing it? :???:

He's closer to :HASBRO: HQ.... :WHISTLE: yes I know it's an Amazon exclusive, but I assume they have to get it from Hasbro in the first place... and yes I know the toys are all made in Vietnam now, but last I checked the toys are still shipped to Pawtucket for distribution to the rest of the country
ok...so I checked and seemingly Pawtucket RI doesn't appear on the boxes anymore...just call me a crazy conspiracy theorist then....
