I honestly wish we had a time machine to go back in time to Combiner Wars and have them implement Siege engineering (copious 5mm ports, sfx notches and maybe ankle tilt) to the entire Prime Wars trilogy...

I disagree on ankle tilts for all.

the combiners were a lot better with the HFG. The only combiner that really won with the ankle tilts is Computron, and that's because he is wearing size Gazillion boots.

the others? It is not as nice to the figures acting as legs and makes the combiners more unstable. My CW ones are far more stable than Victorion and the ones using PotP feet

I think he meant ankle tilts for the deluxe/voyager figures themselves as opposed to the combiners.

That’s brilliant I’d love that! You can use that blue effect similarly I mean it won’t attach to the fist but once pegged to another bot...well....man now I just want burning knuckle effects!

I'll point out that he does have a sticker on his foot that most of the figures at this show had (like on SS Prime's bumper) that reads "deco sample not final". The final figure could still lack the text.

Funny that someone took the time to cut the Autobot symbol out of that sticker and stick it to his face.

Greetings fellow Seibertronians! Just in from Snakas.blog95 are some fresh official images from Takara of the upcoming Transformers Siege releases. These are of course, identical to the toys Hasbro will release. Enjoy some new views of Barricade, the Seeker with the smirk Thundercracker, whose blue looks less pastel than before, and the Off road Patrol. These are our best looks yet at the finished figures. Share which ones you're looking most forward to below.

Wish Springer's 'boots' were more gray than blue, but I am still really looking forward to that figure.

Do you think with Springer and Impactor we may get some other Wreckers? I was secretly hoping for a Siege Kup with the Cybertronian focus.

Was he Cybertronian Kup or just future earth truck Kup?

Go COG! Yessss!!

I love how he’s designated as a mechanic and his pistols are welders. Really brings me a G1 vibe with the very specified job functions and ranks.

Is it just me, or are the combined modes for the Siege Micromasters getting worse instead of better? I guess the chief power from that combined weapon mode is that it forces your enemies to laugh themselves to death....

Barricade looks good. I'll be getting those micromasters since they are personal favorites of mine (might get two copies to make Ironworks). If I was getting all the seekers I would probably switch Starscream and Thundercrackers heads.

Taiwan Hasbro Releases Episode 4 of Their Stop Motion Animated Transformers Siege Series of Shorts

Postby Wolfman Jake » Tue May 14, 2019 9:09 pm

Motto: ""A mountain with a wolf on it stands a little taller."
-Edward Hoagland"
Weapon: Retractable Mecha-Fangs
It's been a week and a half since the previous installment, fellow Seibertronians, but Taiwan Hasbro has uploaded to their YouTube channel the next episode of their Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy - SIEGE stop motion shorts. Thank you to forum member 00stargrave00 for the hot tip on this upload! "Episode 4" features the two faction leaders in their Voyager forums, the Heroic Optimus Prime of the Autobots and the Tyrannical Megatron of the Decepticons. Optimus Prime isn't alone, though. He's backed up by Deluxe Wave 1 Weaponizer Cog! Once again, the short is set in the framework of a fighting game, complete with character selection screen. Unfortunately, the "KO!" declaration at the conclusion of the previous videos has been omitted leaving only the "Victory" banner to conclude the match. Generation 1 fans will recognize the battle grounds as right outside the Autobot's initial base of operations on Earth, the wreckage of the Autobot Ark buried into the base of Mount St. Hillary. There's still no sign of the weapon effects parts of the Battle Master Class of the line. The hits are illustrated with computer generated lasers and sparks. Can Optimus Prime and Cog successfully fend off the evil Megaontron's incursion of their home turf? Find out in the video below!



You can catch up on the previous episodes by following these handy links:



Which Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy - SIEGE figures do you want to see throw down in battle next? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers.

I was loving the diorama Ark in the background. Man that brings me back to just being a kid and playing with action figures in the backyard.

Just checked, it definitely does. Doesn't necessarily mean it'll be on the final figure, but it's a good sign seeing it turn up again.
