After images of the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce surfaced, it was only a matter of time till we learned of the opposing set. Thanks to Seibertronian Jtprime17 in the forums, we have pictures of this new set, and finally caught the name itself, the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron. The images come from aiex888 of home.gamer.tw, but all images of the figures are shown below. The box art appears to be the other side of box art with the Autobot set (which has G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance if you don't know), and includes:
Skywarp (redeco of Starscream)
Decepticon Fracas (redeco of Firedrive)
Shrute (redeco of Aimless)
Terror-Daxtyl (redeco of Pteraxadon)
Shrute was the name used for Hairsplitter, in the TFCC 4.0 release of Spinister, making him one of his Targetmasters. Fracas is Scourge's Targetmaster, but was also released in Headmasters as Nightstick, Artfire's Targetmaster.
So, thoughts on this upcoming set? Are you a fan of these new Battle Masters, and who they represent? Whatever it is, tell us in the Pub forums below, after checking out the full gallery below.
It has been a long time since Canada was the first with a sighting. But it is again with the Cyberverse Spark Armor toys. These are slightly taller than legends class figures and have a similar complexity along with a drone vehicle which becomes armor. These are similar to the RID Battlepack figures. The first wave has Prowl, Starscream, Jetfire and Skybyte. They are $19.99 CAD. Another new sighting in Canada is the Series 2 Botbots. Only the 8 packs were spotted so far. While the US has had these in a while, Canada did get the Series 1.5 Bakery Bytes wave between them, which the US skipped. These were all found at Toysrus by yours truly. The Spark Amor toys were in Montreal, Quebec, while the Botbots were found in Brampton, Ontario, (as evidence by the MPM toys on shelves which are not sold in Quebec).
Following on from his cameo in the review for Smashdown and Caliburst, Red Alert stars in his own review from fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999! A slight retool of Siege Sideswipe, Red Alert also features a new weapon combo. Check out what Chuck has to say, and then watch the video to help you decide if the figure is a must-have or must-skip for you.
Red Alert is a surprisingly good repaint of Sideswipe with a new head. The new accessories are fun, but make me wish Sideswipes shoulder cannon was included for the "Perfect" look. Red Alert is a perfect addition to any collection.
Your thoughts, Seibertronians? Let us know below! Red Alert, and his fellow Wave 3 mates Refraktor and Brunt are slowly trickling out at retail in the U.S., and should be widely available in July. Happy Hunting!
Thanks to fellow Seibertronian and toy reviewer Chuckdawg1999 we have a brand new video review featuring Wave 3 Battle Masters Smashdown and Caliburst! While Caliburst is a straight recolor of Blowpipe (though with a new blast effect), Smashdown is a brand-new mold, transforming from a Minotaur-ish robot into a hammer that can be wielded by Deluxe and larger sized figures- indeed, fellow Wave 3 Deluxes Reflector Refraktor and Red Alert have cameos.
The Battlemasters are one of the hidden gems of the Siege line. Caliburst continues the update to the traditional Targetmaster look with a nicely articulated figure and blast effect. Smashdown is an all-new mold that transforms into a rather cool war hammer with an equally cool and useful impact effect. Both are highly recommended to fill out your Siege ranks.
Check out this latest review and then let us know what you think below. Will you be picking up this latest Wave from the Siege line? Wave 3 is slowly trickling out to stores, and these two should be available sometime in July.

Also shown in the article is the new set called the Arcade Renegades which should be listed soon on Amazon. As has been the standard so far to go with the cuteness of the characters themselves are an assortment of cute names to go along with them.

Fantastic Fuelers has COFEEMUS PRIME the coffee cup dressed as Optimus Prime, CAB O’NATE the energy drink, HAL A. PENO the spicy chips, and SUMTHIN’ FISHY the fish taco.

Good morning and happy Monday Seibertronians have we ever got a sweet slice of Siege news to start your day off right! Thanks to Seibertronian Nexus Knight via Facebook member DaimChocReports we have some images of the upcoming Transformers War For Cybertron: Siege Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce Multi-Pack featuring Covert Clone (G2 Sideswipe), Slamdance (Grand Slam and Raindance) and Battlemaster Trenchfoot (The Aimless mold). This appears to be the side package art featured on all Siege boxes and card backs along with the splash shot of all the characters on the back.
Covert clone? Could this be some veiled reference to Sideswipe's pseudo-reincarnation as a new protoform from the IDW books? Are you feeling ok with Slamdance being a little topsy turvy in this incarnation? Is Trenchfoot really an ideal name for a Targetmaster and does he over compensate with his blast effects? All questions we're likely to clamor over as this item's release approaches.
As always take a peruse and share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forum!
