Entertainment Earth has a new Transformers coloring contest for a $100 eGift Card and a Transformers prize, in celebration of the War for Cybertron Trilogy premiering this Thursday! The link to the page can be found here, with the description below.

If you're a fan of Transformers like we are, you're probably binge-watching the Netflix Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege series. Color our Transformers pages while you watch, and tag us on social media for a chance to win a HUGE Transformers prize. No transformation cog required.


One randomly selected winner will receive a Transformers prize package and a $100 Entertainment Earth eGift Card! Download your favorite coloring page below, color it, and share your photo on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #iCollectatEE and #BringHometheFun.


There are five days left to enter, and judging from the picture, the prize is made of Earthrise Skylynx, Scorponok, Masterpiece Movie Barricade, Megatron, and/or the 3rd Bumblebee. It is unknown if you can take creative liberties, but there are 5 days left and 4 pages to color, based on the Cyberverse cartoon. It is a fair bit of work for just a chance to win these toys, but, good luck.

Cool pics! You know, with him basically being grayscale.. Maybe you could repurpose him as Film Noir Optimus Prime.

This is why I haven't complained much about the lack of guns for the smaller figures. Between Titan Master vehicles, Prime Master decoy armor, and Battle Masters it's quite easy to make up for that.

Your seventh pic brings to mind a different song about someone's birth...

Born on a mountaintop in Iacon,
Greenest state on Planet Cybertron
Raised in the woods so's he knew ev'ry tree,
killed him a Pred when he was only three
Davy, Davy Convoy, king of the cyber frontier!

Sky Lynx makes a most magnificent steed for Optimus Prime! Great pics, Cobo ;)^

I just got around to opening up Generations Selects Greasepit last night. Although he's only a retool/repaint of Ironworks, he's still just as much fun and unique enough that the shared engineering and head sculpt aren't too bothersome. I eagerly await the release of Airwave now. So, of the original Micromaster bases, that just leaves Hot House. Will he be a unique mold, or a retool somehow of Airwave? I would hope the former, as Siege had three unique Weaponizer/Modulator molds, two of which were used twice, and one of which has been used thrice now. Only two unique Modulator molds for Earthrise would feel like a let down, honestly. Here's hoping for some news on Hot House soon!

Another consideration is how Hasbro and Takara will make use of the Modulators for some other figures. Retooling and redecoing the Siege Weaponizers as the G1 Powerdashers was inspired, but I don't think the same magic will work for something like the Modulators and the Omnibots, for example. There are, of course, more G1 Micromaster playsets (and vehicles/carriers), but none of them particularly lend themselves to obvious retools of Earthrise Ironworks/Greaspit or Airwave. Anyone have any ideas?

I would bet money that Hot House will be an Airwave redeco. Airwave's thighs have the treads that the Hot House alt-mode needs, and the air traffic control tower was already repurposed for the fire station in the original G1 toy. I'm just glad we'll be getting all four, I don't care that there are only two molds between them.

I think you are right on with Hothouse coming from Airwave. The 2 molds for the modulators also make sense since re-using those for anything else would be a bit of a stretch, much more of a stretch than going from weaponizer to power dasher.

Wish Bee was a chibi VW... this one's too close to MP-21 to get, also. Especially with partforming. That Fasttrack guy looks cool, though.

Wrong thread for these two. They're part of the Netflix toyline instead of Earthrise proper.

I thought that was pretty much a foregone conclusion... We would be getting via Selects Hothouse out of Airwave, and Roritchi from Fasttrack....

I'm intrigued about wave 4....

Seems like Runabout and Cyclonus will be deluxes in wave 4, what about any others? Will we get any new Battlemasters, Voyagers or Leaders in wave 4, or will it all just be re-releases?

Thanks to Seibertronian Cyberpath, we've been alerted to some brand new stock images of upcoming Earthrise figures! Dengeki Hobby Web has posted some new images of Deluxe Class Fasttrack and Megatron. There's not a lot new to see with Megatron- he does have his more Earth-style tank mode, and he does have some battle damage paint applications that buck the trend of nearly all Earthrise figures not having ANY battle damage (he and Hoist seem to be the exceptions).

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Moving on to Fasttrack, there's more to note than we've seen before. There are new shots of his back and also with him disassembled into his component pieces. 'Modulators' in this line are meant to be disassembled and reassembled into different configurations instead of having a typical integrated transformation. We also see his interactivity with Zarak and Scorponok.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

They've also posted new pictures of Elita-One1 and Bumblebee from Wave 2 of the Netflix line. Despite being Netflix Siege figures, these two have no battle damage whatsoever, unlike the heavy battle damage decos of other Netflix figures. Given that they're both remolded from Earthrise figures, and the fact that Volkswagens were never manufactured on Cybertron, it makes sense.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

While these figures should be showing up at U.S. retail in the next month or two, Elita and Bumblebee aren't scheduled to be released in Japan until January of 2021.

Let us know what you think of these new images! Bumblebee looking love a mini-Masterpiece to you? Do Megatron's pictures give you a thirst for tyranny? Has Elita-One1 improved on her divot mold? Is Fasttrack's new Triple-changer status even more appealing? Share your thoughts below!

I'm pretty sure that Cyclonus we saw was a Voyager (roughly same size as Thrust), and for the SS 86 line instead of Earthrise (lack of 5mm ports).

As for the other parts of wave 4, let me go full nerd for a little while and see what I can come up with. I have a few ideas that might tell us something.

so can we expect that everything in Netflix wave 2 will be in the main Earthrise line with different paint jobs?

If there is a Wave 4, I could see it being a much smaller wave than the previous ones because it's (possibly) the end of the line. Voyager Thrust and Deluxe Runabout are a given, but I'd say no other Voyagers besides Thrust (I'm in the camp that thinks Cyclonus will be in Studio Series), maybe one other Deluxe, and something like one or two more Battlemasters or Micromasters. I'm not expecting any more Leaders, at the very least it could just be an unchanged re-release of Ultra Magnus or Shockwave, but I'll be amazed if there is something new.

The only *new* Figures in Netflix wave 2 are BB and Elita-1, It's possible for earthrise I guess, but I doubt it seeing as they would probably be on shelves around the same time.

I wouldn't bank on that, the Netflix stuff has already included a Seeker and 2 new repaint characters that were never released in the mainline, and the way the designer on the FFF stream was talking about them, he made it sound like Bumblebee and Soundwave at least have no battle damage because these releases are their only ER figures.

Thrust is supposedly an exclusive though?

I'm starting to think now... that maybe the Netflix series will be another "dumping ground" for figures with alternate tooling that would otherwise go unused. Selects is one, but a tad limited (depending on who you ask) and more suitable for obscure characters. The Walmart exclusive Netlix series hits that middle ground with more known characters that would have received backlash from fans were they in Selects. :-?

And on top of that he is WFC-E26, which would put him at much too low of a number for wave 4. Unless, he was originally going to be an exclusive and the deal fell through, then he got shoved into wave 4. Pure speculation there.

Speaking of the numbering system and missing stuff, we're still missing some numbers in the middle of that chunk of exclusives that falls inbetween Waves 2 & 3:
E1-E25: Wave 1, Wave 2, Quintesson Judge, Sky Lynx, Scorponok
E26: Seeker Thrust (release method unknown)
E27: Ramjet & Dirge
E28: ???
E29: Thundercracker & Skywarp
E30: Pounce & Wingspan
E31: Prowl & Ironhide
E32: ???
E33: ???
E34-E38: Wave 3
E39: Doublecrosser
E40: Battle Squad rerelease
E41: Runabout
Rest of Wave 4 (E42-on): ???

The only stuff we know is coming that could go in there is Bluestreak (who if he is the Walgreens figure, would fit in E33 almost exactly like Ratchet last year as an unofficial extra Wave 3 Deluxe) and the Autobot Clones (which were soft-confirmed during the first FFF, but have yet to be seen or leaked), so at least one of those is a mystery. Considering we have multipacks for 3/4 factions present in this line accounted for already, I'm hoping for a Mercenary set of some kind (they're running out of places to release Detritus dangit).
