Crosshair is an instant mine! Spinster I was all excited for. Cool dude, cool guns, cool alt mode. But then I saw the tail rotor behind his head in robot mode. No matter how I try, I cannot unsee that. Pass

This big leader size figure (with shoes on) is as big as a deluxe sized spinnister...yay? The price points for the so called leader figures suck so I'll definitely be sticking with TR astro train.

It's all mass, not height. Besides, Astrotrain's is measured from the top of his head, while Spinister's is measured from the top of rotor, well above his head. The former is bulkier too, but could still be considered a Voyager with add-ons.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- TR Ravage and Rumble (the red one)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

Siege is about scale. Astrotrain is not bigger than megatron so anyone hoping for a larger base figure was setting themselves up for dissapointment. Plus, I dont want my astrotrain leader sized, it makes no sense. If you don't like the approach you can always wait for a sale (as I will) or not buy it.

New Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Refraktor Reconnaissance Team In Hand Images

Postby Stargrave » Sat Aug 24, 2019 8:57 pm

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Thanks to fellow Seibertronian TFanPage101 we've learned of a new post to Snakas.blog, this time showing the Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Refraktor Reconnaissance Team with Spectro, Spyglass, and Viewfinder. The set also includes the fireblast effect sidekick character Kremzeek. Unlike the main release which has fans assembling three identical Refraktors (or Reflectors) as they appeared in the cartoon, this set has three individual Refraktors, each repainted and armed with unique accessories that makes them look much more like their G1 toy counterparts. The additional accessories also add to the camera mode making a more realistic looking camera. Also included are images of the packaging with insert art that was previously noted as 'leaking' this sets additional accessories. The set is currently expected in October 2019 and is available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth for $69.99, Big Bad Toy Store for $71.99, and the Chosen Prime for $71.99. Enjoy the images and stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news.

I finally moved heavens and Earth and and scored a Jetfire. I was so stoked but his battle mask won’t stay on. Has anyone had this issue? Am I missing something?

Inside the battle mask, there's a peg that pushes into a spring loaded squarish panel on Jetfire's forehead.. are you pushing it in all the way until it clicks?

I thought I heard a click the first time but it hasn’t since now it pops off like Chromia’s belt. Man what a bummer I wonder if the spring catch snapped.

I just noticed that the "REFRAKTOR" label on the front of it's camera mode has a design error in its typeface. The "R" at the beginning of "REFRAKTOR" is slanted correctly, but the "R" at the end of the word is not slanted at all. A reprolabel would fix that!

if wreckers have blue autobot faction symbols...what are white decepticon faction symbols :P

Either way the odd bot out is going to get a faction symbol put on him, unlike ultra magnus that has no smooth spaces for where he should have a faction symbol.

It's not just that the Wreckers symbol is blue, but that it has a hammer inside it.

Good spot... however, went to check the g1 toy pix and they are indeed apeing the original g1 sticker... the first r is slanted, the last isn’t.


Re astrotrain.. would’ve loved a larger figure to go toe to toe with jetfire, though the original robot scale means he should be a voyager... I enjoyed every iteration of astrotrain so far... will enjoy this one too. And yes, the cybertronian flip flops are weird,
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

Yeah, you guys are right, the toy is actually like that! I was getting it confused with Reflector's appearance in the Megatron Killing Joke homage cover from the All Hail Megatron series, where the other "R" is slanted :HEADHURTS:

This has probably already been covered before, but I was wondering: How does Apeface's Titan Master work? Is it the same way as the G1 toy with one side having bot mode, and the other beast mode?

Cause I saw that Apeface looks to have a faceplate for beast mode, but I can't tell if it covers bot mode's face, or does something similar to the leader classes from TR where it was just a helmet to improve the look
