We have a couple of new sightings to share with Canadians. Both come from Cybertron.ca. First we have the Dropkick and KSI sentry deluxe toys from the Studio Series line. Thes were found at the Maxie et Cie. grocery chain in Quebec for the same standard $30 price point. This grocery chain is part of the Loblaws family so those toys could show up at Loblaws as well.
Also, while EB Games had the Siege leaders, they are now showing up at Walmart as well.
Finally, the trailer less reissue of Optimus Prime has been found at Walmarts in Ontario and Alberta for $69.98.
In terms of market six stores, Winners and Marshals across the country are getting voyager class toys from Titans Return and Power fo the Primes for $15.
Our old pal chuckdawg1999 comes through with a new review of the Cyberverse Ultra Class Slipstream toy. This is her first figure that isn't a redeco and can actually transform completely! Wow! Chuck clearly enjoys the figure very much, putting it right under Ultra Class Shockwave. The Slipstream toy itslef has a more complex transformation than other figures, and has an interesting Action Attack: when squeezing the null rays, a rotor blade spins out behind the figure!
Chuck himself says:
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Ultra Class Slipstream is a good figure. While not overly articulated it does enough to have a fair amount of play value. The action gimmick is relatively unobtrusive and fun, while the transformation is surprisingly involved for a simplified figure. Overall I feel this is worth a look if not a purchase.

This is the one we've all been waiting for, folks! Seibertron.com member Dannshinigami informed us that TonTon Reviews of YouTube has finally published their video review of Transformers: SIEGE Deluxe Class Ironhide! By now, you probably know what to expect from TonTon's videos of these upcoming figures. We're treated to a step by step conversion of Ironhide from Cybertronian armored truck to robot and back again, as well as an overview of sculpting and paint detailing on the figure, accessory demonstration, basic articulation in robot mode, and of course size comparisons in both vehicle and robot modes. Indeed, the size comparison is exciting as it shows that, despite being a Deluxe Class figure, SIEGE Ironhide is TALL in robot mode. He stands head and shoulders above SIEGE Deluxe Prowl and is just under a head shorter than Studio Series 14 Voyager Ironhide. To top it off, TonTon also shows off one possible configuration for combining Deluxe Weaponizer Sixgun with Ironhide. Enjoy the video below!
Is this the Classics/Generations G1 Ironhide figure you've been waiting for? How well are Hasbro and Takara Tomy doing with the scaling in the War for Cybertron: SIEGE line so far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!
As I'm sure many of you remember, we put up an article on our first image of the upcoming War for Cybertron Trilogy: Siege Leader Optimus Prime, which is based off none other than Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime/Galaxy Force Leader Class Galaxy Convoy. Since the Siege figure is a retool of Siege Leader Class Ultra Magnus, this figure has an inner robot. And here we have a leaked image of it! Thanks to a notification from Seibertronian Survivefan23 and starrhero, we have word that an image of the inner robot of Siege Leader Optimus Prime is on TransFan's Facebook page. Here, we see a more G1 style Optimus, though it still has the Cybertron Optimus cab for a torse and somewhat similar forearms. This design is being used in the upcoming IDW reboot, as seen here and here. The leaked image appears to be from the back of the box, and is rendered in black and white.
We also see the figure carrying two weapons. If you recall, these are the same weapons as the black blasters that came with Siege Ultra Magnus, which seem to carry over it's coloration. This makes sense, since those weapons were very similar to the leg mounted guns on Cybertron Optimus' super mode.
So, thoughts on this figure? Tell us in the Pub forums down below!
We've got a treat for you, fellow Seibertronians! Our own member Dannshinigami has let us know that YouTube channel TonTon Review has uploaded another video of an upcoming Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy - SIEGE figure. This time, it's Deluxe Class Greenlight and her new Battle Master partner, Dazlestrike! Greenlight and Dazlestrike will not be sold at regular retail, but instead are likely to be an exclusive set. We're still waiting to hear exactly how this set will be made available for purchase.
TonTon shows off the molding and coloring detail of Greenlight, a retool and repaint of Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Moonracer and Novastar. As such, Greenlight retains the combiner limb functionality first established with the Combiner Wars line. She can become an arm or leg for any Combiner Wars or Power of the Primes compatible Voyager Class combiner torso. TonTon demonstrates the conversion of Greenlight from Cybertronian car to robot, along with how to configure her for arm and leg mode. Dazlestrike is a repaint of SIEGE Battle Master Lionizer, featuring new green paint apps, and a new orange fire slash effect (differently sculpted from Lionizer's blue sword slashing effect). Greenlight also comes with the "Prime Armor" accessory that Power of the Primes Deluxe Class figures all featured. This piece can become a hand for arm mode, be used as chest armor in robot mode, or configured in other imaginative ways to form an additional weapon or shield. Greenlight doesn't come with any other dedicated weapon accessories, like the guns that came with her mold-mates Moonracer and Novastar.
Of course, TonTon also gives us a few size comparisons for Greenlight in both vehicle mode and robot mode. Of note, we can see that SIEGE Deluxe Class Chromia is a bit shorter in robot mode than Greenlight (and presumably Moonracer and Novastar). Even better, though, we get another teaser of SIEGE Deluxe Class Ironhide, who appears to be substantially taller and bulkier than Greenlight in robot mode, meaning that Ironhide may indeed be a larger than usual Deluxe Class figure in this line, further confirming that Hasbro and Takara Tomy are taking robot mode scale very seriously in War for Cybertron: SIEGE. Take a look at the video below and enjoy!
Are you excited for this upcoming special release in the War for Cybertron: SIEGE line? We seem to be one step closer now to completing a combiner entirely consisting of characters from Elita One's team from the original G1 cartoon episode "The Search for Alpha Trion." Tell us what you think of this exclusive offering from Hasbro in the comments below, and keep tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!
Flame Toys' third Furai Model is coming this month and we're getting our first look at his box thanks to the folks at Planet Iacon. The highly anticipated IDW Optimus Prime kit will be here soon and as with the rest of the line the box is adorned with some truly gorgeous art! And of course the kit itself is going to be great, featuring a ton of articulation, rifle, and a choice of six hands. Still no pointing finger yet, though.
Excited to get your next Furai Model fix or just happy to finally get a version of IDW Optimus Prime? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!
Wave 5 of Studio Series (or 2019 wave 1 as Hasbro calls it) has yet to be found in the US, but fellow Seibetronian Rainmaker has found the delues in Australia. This wave include Barricade, Sideswipe, Clunker Bumblebee, WWII Bumblebee and everyone's favourite, Crankcase.
These were found in KMart for $30 AUD (which is around $21.50 USD). If anyone else spots these in Australia, let your fellow Aussie friends know in the sightings thread. None of the classes for wave 5 (deluxes, voyager or leaders) have been found in several other areas of the world, like the US, so let us know if you find them.
