Then there was one...Following yesterday's final today Hasbro crowned a winner... G1 Astrotrain! Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Carytheone for bringing this to our attention.
This means that Astrotrain will be the lucky con who is returning to Walmart shelves in Spring 2020.
He overcame Skywarp in the finals, who had beaten Thundercracker. Astrotrain himself saw off Perceptor in Round 1. Now we'll have to wait and see just what form his reissue will take as he was released a few years ago but in an odd colour scheme as part of a platinum edition that also included fellow triple changer Blitzwing.
What do you think of this result? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.
With the Bumblebee film releasing wide soon, Toysrus Canada has reorganized to move ALL Transformers toys to the front of the store to set up a massive display. What you will see below can be found as soon as you walk into the store with huge Bumblebee Banners atop the plentiful pegs. While the Bumblebee toys are heavily featured and stocked, all Transformers toys can be found there, including the latest releases like Siege (Canada only has the Battle Masters so far) and BotBots. It is definitely striking to see this display amidst the holiday seasons since every Transformers live action film until now was a summer release, but it defintely makes for a more fun display and centers Transformers as the toys to get this holiday season.
Fellow Seibertronians! Are you thinking Transformers? Are you thinking Studio Series? Are you thinking discounts!? Then you should DEFINITATELY be thinking GEEK!
According to our own Megatronus (of Twincast fame!), it looks like some ThinkGeek stores are discounting their wave 1 and 2 Voyager and Deluxe Class Studio Series Decepticons. They were marked down to $16.97 and 25.97, respectively, and with the additional 50% off clearance items. The regular MSRP for Studio Series Deluxes is $19.99 USD and for Voyagers $29.99 USD. Megatronus was able to purchase deluxe Crowbar (wave 1) for all of $8.49, and voyagers Starscream (wave 1), Brawl (wave 2), and Megatron (wave 2) for $12.99 each! Keep in mind that Deluxe wave 1 also includes Stinger and Deluxe wave 2 also includes Lockdown.
Megatronus asked if GameStop was having a similar promotion, since GameStop owns Thinkgeek, but the employees drew a distinction between the two retailers when it comes to these kinds of clearance sales.
Have you been waiting to push the button on the Studio Series line? Will this deep discount from Think Geek be enough for you to make a purchase? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest news on everything Transformers!
The Siege begins, thanks to this notification from Seibertron user Survivefan23! Today, coming from In Demand Toys' Facebook page, we have an image of the new multipack in the War for Cybertron Trilogy, Siege Deluxe Class Greenlight with Battle Master Dazlestrike! For those who may not know, Greenlight was the name created in "Flames of Yesterday" comic given to the green Autobot female in the G1 cartoon episode, "The Search for Alpha Trion." And now, she has her very first toy!
In a similar vein to her fellow female Autobots that was in the episode, she uses the Moonracer mold. Unlike Chromia, she is a direct redeco of Moonracer, with a new head. She even retains her Prime Armor/hand, meaning she can be an arm or leg! She also comes with a Battle Master, Dazlestrike! They are a redeco of Battle Master Lionizer (it's actually the same, but with blue eyes, and green on the blade). Buuuuut, they come with a new "Fire Blast" effect piece, which is literally fire, in a slashing motion!
We have no information on price, date, or venue of release, past this one image. But, thoughts on this figure? Tell us in the Energon Pubs below!
Looking forward to the next batch of Voyagers for the Transformers Studio Series? Well thanks to a helpful tip off from fellow Seibertron user, What's Crackin?, we've learned that YouTuber Ton Ton Review has uploaded a review of #33 2007 Movie Bonecrusher!
Also at the start of the video during the vehicle size comparisons you can see the new Studio Series #32 2007 Movie Optimus Prime in his Truck mode. You can see that Optimus is much brighter than the original SS Optimus Prime and has some real nice silver paint. His gun also stores in the back, instead of on the side like an image once showed. The windows are also much more clear than the Rotf figure. You can see prime at 2:01
Please check out TonTon's review below!
What do you think of this long awaited bigger take on Bonecrusher? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

Which of these Cons do you want to see back on shelves? Are you happy that Skywarp beat Thundercracker? Would you want any of these to be improved like the recent Bumblebee reissue? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.
Do you want a beautiful G1 Optimus Prime to receate iconic poses? But you can't afford MP-44? Well, some fans have been having fun using Transformers WFC Siege Optimus Prime and recreating all the poses used in the Masterpiece MP-44 Optimus Prime Ver 3 listings. Below you can see an image that recreates the famous movie pose among others that served to show poses MP-44 could do. While tongue in cheek, this does show that the latest Siege Optimus Prime toy is very poseable and has great articulation. Of course these are different scales, but it comes to show that some of the fun MP-44 may bring can be had right now with a much cheaper toy. And in the end, isn't fun what toys are all about? These were posted by TF Fan Xavier on Facebook and by Skyfire Prime on our boards.
