The autobot symbol graphic on their left hand side indicate something further because not all of them have the same base form. I'd like an even further breakdown and complete explanation for what each piece means

This is tech spec level awesome for me. Old school G.I.Joe filecard level of awesome.

I LOVED reading this. Subtle nuance and backstory, I don’t care if it’s on the toys or not whether everyone noticed it or not I have loved these since I got my first Cog. If any of the designers read this then thanks because I’ve totally been geeking out over the rank insignias you made it for guys like me.

Thanks Kev and William-James!

Siege is my favorite line since Thrilling 30.

Due to his rather unique birth, Grimlock has a slow but endearing speech pattern, which can easily make you forget he's Godzilla with style. And weapons.

Totally noted that! What does it mean??? Is that Turtler’s rank maybe? Seaspray? Just entries in their bible??? I must know! I want the comic with all the profiles and ranks like a DC Who’s Who type deal :lol:

Likely they're made in advance before any characters to appear in the lines were decided upon. Not a whole lot of marine characters in the line as a whole, in fact they're quite the rarity in G1/G2:

- Seaspray
- Broadside
- Seacons (Note that Selects Turtler is not Siege)

- Waverider
- Submarauder
- Splashdown
- Finback
- Octopunch
- Longtooth (shell)

- Quickswitch

- Seawatch
- Strikedown & Power Run
- Flattop's carrier

- Waver

- Tidal Wave (Armada import)
- Manta Ray
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Actually if you notice, the TCG actually uses those symbols. For example, Major Soundwave. Neat!

So since Apeface is getting a proper update, I was wondering what other later characters could do with a proper update and I'm hoping we see some Powermasters in the next part of the trilogy. Canonically, they shouldn't be on Cybertron, but neither should Spasma given his Nebulan origin. Plus, the engine modes could be little micromaster sets like the cassettes if Hasbro doesn't want to include them with their partner

I don't see why they can't do this. Canonically, the battle masters and Jetfire aren't supposed to be on Cybertron, yet there they are.

It's new canon so they can include whoever they want tbh.(that and i qyuite like Apeface being about during the early days etc)

I was hoping Tidalwave would be a titan but the next slot must be Scorponok :-D and now i think of it Broadside would be a great Commander class but he's only just been done (albeit very poorly).

Octopunch counts as an aquatic character and Longtooth inner robot is a amphibious transport vehicle. I've done a list of aquatic characters there's quite a few as we all know seafaring character often suffer and get the superfriends aquaman treatment LOL.

Well, Tidalwave and Broadside could share a mold if Hasbro wanted to do both like TR. But I think what's holding them back from doing that is they might be worried about the demand for either character

At least you get shiny coins :) I just picked up soundwave and even the box is too embaressed to mention what he turns into (I liked the alt in photos, in hand, it is a literal thing). Robot modes great apart from forearm junk and the hollows.

Just lucked up and got the *last* Thundercracker on Amazon.com. (Whew) These things restock and sell out quick!

While I passed on the Rainmakers and Redwing, I was always going to get the O.G. Three. Looks like I'll have a break while I wait on Impactor and Mirage to be in stock.

My local TrU have just barely begun getting Wave 2 deluxes and voyagers. There was so much Wave 1... As for my local Walmart, they are up-to-date with Siege Wave 2, but they barely keep any stock.

At least EB Games have plenty of Ratchets.

I LOVE his looks and the fact that he basically transform like a Go-Bots.
We sure came a long way since 30 years!

I don't think he's part of a "wave", being an exclusive and all. But yeah, this mold is fantastic in it's simplicity.

Plus, Six-Gun is the PERFECT partner for Ratchet!
