Starscream looks pretty sick! I want that figure in my collection. I do enjoy the tetra jet variation of him.

It's weirder still that Sixgun has any battle damage at all. I don't think Cog or Brunt have such, do they? I thought the Weaponizers and Flywheels/Skytread were exempt from the whole "battle weathered" paint apps thing.

Brunt has battle damage on his hands/arms which become his front treads. The only battle damage I can see on Cog looking at his stock photos is some barely noticeable white spots on his arms that aren't pins, but I can't really tell if that's intentional or not because of how hard to see it is. I can only assume it is.

EDIT: Baltmatrix has put up a review for Skytread, and the notion of him not having battle damage can now be put to rest:

Also, these are all up for pre-order on HLJ, Ami Ami & Anime Export. I think I'm going to skip to batch though.

Well those pictures explain where Six-Gun's head disappeared to in the renders of his non-robot modes: the renders had his head change color from red to white when he transformed. That explains a lot.

Also that one Sideswipe/Six-Gun pic makes me wonder how hard it would be to use Six-Gun and possibly Cog as well to make a giant Weaponizer gun-hand, seeing that those four guns on his back section can be positioned differently. That picture has an almost complete gun-hand by itself, it just needs a thumb.

...I don't know why Six-Gun immediately became my most anticipated figure of this line, but I'm okay with the fact that he did.

Wonder if it could be a good alt hand for a combiner, like a power hand or something. (Really it could be an excuse to increase the amount of characters in a combiner)

"I'll form the torso and head!"
"We'll form the arms!"
"We'll form the legs!"
"I'll form the torso armor!"
"I'll form the gun!"
"I'll form the hand!...what?"

(That's just going by the standard CW combining system, in fiction you could get even more ridiculous, like the combiner also being a head master.)

I just noticed, Sixgun's "power fist" mode has booster nozzles on it. Seems Sixgun's pulling a Mazinger Z and has a ROCKET PUNCH mode, which is absolutely slaggin' awesome.

I THINK there's a thumb, albeit it's pretty stumpy and hard to make out due to all the red plastic.

I guess the bright red is a better match to Metroplex? A little disappointed with Sixgun now, but it's still worth picking up.

Huh, Sideswipe's gun tip/missile is exactly the same as Sixgun's. That's some random parts sharing.

Also looking forward to combining Sixgun, Cog, and Brunt into one big Weaponizer bot.

You don't need a thumb to punch a guy. :lol:

Edit: The thingy that might be the thumb looks like it has a 5mil peg. Maybe you can stick another part on there to make a thumb? Sideswipe's rocket launcher part?

Good eye, Emerje! That is rando, but cool.

Do you feel under SIEGE from all of the news about Transformers War for Cybertron SIEGE toy line? "Not yet" you say? How about even more in-hand pictures of the just released War for Cybertron toys!

This time around, we've got some comparison pictures of SIEGE Battle Masters WFC-S1 Firedrive, WFC-S2 Lionizer, and WFC-S3 Blowpipe alongside their other versions and with other toys from this line. Each Battle Master comes with "fire blasts" which are soft PVC attachments which simulate blast effects that can attach to the Battle Masters and other SIEGE figures.

If you missed the news this past weekend, War for Cybertron SIEGE Battle Masters were already found at retail.

Don't forget to check out our new galleries of War for Cybertron SIEGE Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Megatron.
