Dunno why I just realized that Soundblaster has the same retooled chest door that the G1 Soundblaster had, so now he can accommodate 2 cassettes :D

Can't confirm, but it seems a strong hunch now that those 35th anniversary figures will be the missing WFC 44-47

That's also my guess as well. So will they be Selects or something entirely different?

I'd likely something different, an odd choice to celebrate the 35th anniversary mind, prime and megs? No brainer, bluestreak and soundblaster? Not so much. Also strange that bluey would be the only Deluxe mold among the lot.

My guess is Bluestreak and Soundblaster are gap fillers jammed in to finish up the Siege line-up without adding actually adding additional figures.

If the 35th anny is a different line, that will spread the Datsun bros across three lines.

Hasbro is the new Twizzlers...

I thought the same thing, but looking at the video which gives multiple angles, it appears the head was indeed more flush to the body on the prototype. If they made the change to add more articulation, that's fine, but why does it have to be so unsightly? Look at Siege Jetfire's neck. It's a thing of beauty.

Bluestreak works for me as a celebratory guy. He was one of two my first and to this day favorite TFs of all time. And of course Hasbro is only in it to please ME! 8-} Image

Again, cant confirm, but a strong hunch these 35th seem like standard retail for Siege, just with different packaging. Of course since *standard retail* is pretty much reduced to 2 chains in the US at least, that doesn't mean much.

So, Siege Jetfire listing is back on Hasbro Pulse, but its a pre-order listing estimated for August 8th. So I wonder if that means that all other online retailers (besides Amazon and Pulse) who didn't get them on July 1 automatically get theirs pushed back to August as well? or will they get their supply sometime in July?

Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Bluestreak and Soundblaster Packaging Revealed

Postby Stargrave » Wed Jul 10, 2019 10:15 am

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Fellow Seibertronian Black Hat has let us know of listings from Chinese on-line retailers stores shopee.tw and goods.ruten.com.tw showing Bluestreak and SoundBlaster in their Transformers 35th anniversary packaging. Unfortunately the current image quality is not the best but better official images will no doubt be debuting soon.
Image
Image
Image

Bluestreak is a direct repaint of Prowl but with the much coveted shoulder cannons that will be included with both Smokescreen and Barricade.

And coming in hot from a reformatting looking like he's been doing some serious push ups and doubling up his chest capacity is the Soundwave retool SoundBlaster!
Image



Will you be picking up the chattiest of the Autobot 'Seekers' to complete the Prowl/Smokesceen/Bluestreak trifecta? Will the shadowy Decepticon with the chest that's better than the rest round out your Siege Decepticon roster? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Sorry, I'm only interested in kicking up some dust and running off to another thread to rinse and repeat with a false sense of "winning". I will toss you a few quarters for air though, pal ;)^

Anyway, I agree, BS does look very nice, but a little blurry and soft around the edges. Man, mold degradation set in fast. I guess Hasbro really is cutting corners. Joking aside, at first his front hood / chest spoiler looked larger, but after checking out Prowl, it's the same. He and Smokey really make Prowl look naked without any shoulder pew pews. A real bummer, but at least there are a few 3P options out there.

When in rome, you do as the romans
When in venice, your socks get wet

By the way, I am not too worried about getting this toy. I will wait it out, as I usually have. It being online exclusive and also being still a mass produced toy means there will be quite a bit to go around, we just dont know how long to wait till we know the best channels of purchase for all.

Well that's easy for us North Americans to say. I'll just wait for Pulse and click the pre-order button and get free shipping.

I will say that I skipped Elita at first until it was rumored that a full lady biner team would be released. I'm very excited to finish up the team. Would be cool if Hasbro went the CW route and released a legends class figure to go with them. I guess one of the non-combining Chromias will fill that support role.

Pro-tip, bite off each end and use it as a straw for some milk and you'll get a slightly chocolaty milk.

Even more pro-tip, do NOT try that with orange juice...
