We have an update to the images posted yesterday which show us the other modes for each toy, which were found through some more digging on the Walmart website.
Thanks to Walmart/Brickseek, we have confirmation of four upcoming Transformers Studio Series. We have SS 44 Leader Class Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime who is, as we guessed, the same voyager Optimus Prime we already got with a retooled abdominal area and a jetwing backpack. The trailer can be converted into the weapons platform we see in DOTM. We then have a new SS 45 Deluxe Class Age of Extinction Drift which while having the distinctive Bugatti details, turns into a helicopter. It shares some parts with SS Helicopter Drokick but is very much it's own mold all the same. There is also SS 47 Deluxe Class Revenge of the Fallen Constructicon Hightower, a new mold, who can transform to be part of Devastator. Lastly we have SS 43 Voyager KSI Boss, another goon from Age of Extinction, which we now know is a straight redeco of the Nitro Zeus mold, head and all, making it innacurate to his look in the film. You can see the images and the links to the pages below, and be sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week-end for all our 2019 Toy Fair news.
Loot Crate has been advertising a mystery Transformers item in their February crate for a little while now, and thanks to the official Transformers TCG Twitter account we now know what that item is. The "Transformation" themed crate will contain an exclusive Titan-sized Omega Supreme - Autobot Defense Base card. This is going to be a massive card, the same size as Metroplex featuring bot mode on one side and base with tank on the other. The crate containing the card appears to only be available in North America, but fear not, they do say the card will be available "via alternative avenues in EU and APAC regions."
The full tweets can be found below:

Every two weeks, Seibertron.com brings you a Top 5 list related to all things Transformers written by your fellow editor or a guest star. This week, the list is written by Black Hat!. These are our opinions so what matters most is what you guys think of the topic or list, and I hope to see your own lists or comments on omissions and ranking. Let's have fun! All previous lists can be found here.
Skullgrin is pretty grim for a kids’ toy, even by 80s standards. With his shell resembling a monstrous demon with a cow’s skull for a head and horribly necrotic-looking flesh and armour, he looks like he’d fit right at home with Inhumanoids’ D.Compose. His inner robot was derpy for certain but that shell was the stuff of nightmares. Brrrr.
Another creepy looking Pretender, Submarauder resembles nothing so much as a mixture of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, a classic Kaiju and something out of the late great H.R. Giger’s twisted imagination. The combination of the carapace-like armour design, gribbly pseudo-organic tubes on his chest, strange fin and sucker details and those horrible orange gills in place of a mouth make him look truly alien. His inner robot, whilst abstract like most Pretenders, kinda resembled a horseshoe crab in vehicle mode too.
I don’t much care for most of the Autobot Pretenders but Cloudburst is an exception because of how cool his armour design is, even if his inner robot is 200% goofy. The colours are on point, with a nice mix of red and cool grey accented with blue, and the smooth, rounded shapes of the armour are pure late 80s robot goodness, looking like it would be more at home in Bubblegum Crisis or Megazone 23 than Transformers. His whip is a cool accessory too, looking much better than most whips that come with toys.
Not much needs to be said about Bludgeon. He’s a skeleton samurai for crying out loud! And on top of that, his inner robot isn’t terrible for a Pretender either, actually making a decent tank and a nice robot mode. However, where he wins over most Pretenders is he actually did stuff in the comics, where he was a total badass and almost beat Megatron in a duel.
Unlike the others on this list, Thunderwing’s shell also had a vehicle mode, and unlike some (poor Crossblades) it actually looked like something. His robot modes were suitably imposing, especially the shell, with its organic, alien designs and sweet colour palette. And like Bludgeon, he was actually important in the comics, being part of a major story arc, being driven mad by the Matrix and having the manifolds to challenge Unicron! What a madbot. Thunderwing is the most fictionally important Pretender by some way, and combined with his unique toy and frankly awesome name he easily lands the #1 spot.
Honourable mentions: Black Shadow. A retool of Thunderwing, this guy had minimal fictional appearances, but was a very nice looking rework of an already cool toy, had a cool name and also spawned one of the best Leader class molds in Titans Return. Also the Monster Pretenders, who whilst pretty terrible toys had shell designs ranging from adorable to awesome and had very unique backstories.
Well this was unexpected if it turns out to be true. User Mr. Chaos on the TFW2005 forums has posted some new UPC codes for known figures from an anonymous source, but included was a new UPC for a figure that we haven't heard rumors of yet: Leader class Astrotrain.
WFC Leader Class Astrotrain. E3419. UPC 63050988227
Now, obviously, this hasn't been confirmed by Hasbro so take this rumor with a grain of salt. We are heading into Toy Fair starting Friday so there's a possibility this figure may make an appearance at the event if it's true. Thanks to Seibertronian Autobot N for making us aware! Feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub forums below!
Thanks to Walmart/Brickseek, we have confirmation of four upcoming Transformers Studio Series. We have 44 Leader Class Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime who is, as we guessed, the same Voyager Optimus Prime we already got with a retooled abdominal area and a jetwing backpack. We then have a new 45 Deluxe Class Age of Extinction Drift which while having the distinctive Bugatti details, turns into a helicopter. There is no sign that it also turns into a car, but it is still cool to have the car alternate mode referenced in the robot mode, making it still look screen accurate to an extent. There is also 47 Deluxe Class Revenge of the Fallen Constructicon Hightower, a new mold, who can transform to be part of Devastator. Lastly we have 43 Voyager KSI Boss, another goon from Age of Extinction which is the Nitro Zeus mold. It will probably have a new head though we only see the alt mode. You can see the images and the links to the pages below, and be sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week-end for all our 2019 Toy Fair news.
Thanks to Seibertronian Jtprime17 we have our very first look at long since leaked Transformers Siege figures of Springer, Red Alert, and Thundercracker. The pictures are from BrickSeek which pulled the images from hidden listings on Walmart.com.
The most interesting is our first look at Voyager Springer! While it's only his helicopter mode we can instantly see that this figure is based on the original 1986 figure. As expected, Voyager WFC-S39 Thundercracker is a repaint of Starscream, but notably missing his null-rays, instead holding a recolored Battlemaster Blowpipe. WFC-S35 Red Alert is a retool of Sideswipe as we've seen in some art. He includes a unique weapon made from his light bar that appears to also be able to double as a gun.
Enjoy the photos below and click on each image for a link to the BrickSeek entry.
As a bonus we also have our first stock image of Leader Optimus Prime which has been designated as "WFC-S40 Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime" in the listing. You can see a video review for it here.
This is surely just a preview of things to come as we move into Toy Fair this weekend!
We have excellent news for all those eagerly waiting on news of a second season of Transformers Cyberverse, as Hasbro has reached out to us and given us a look at the first trailer for the second season!
This coincides with the recent reveal of the new entry in the Cyberverse toyline, Spark Armour
Please take a look at the trailer below which we have embedded for your convenience:
Here is the press release accompanying the trailer and gives us hints of what we can expect to see in the second season!
Hasbro wrote:Season 2, titled CYBERVERSE: POWER OF THE SPARK, is set to release fall 2019 with Cartoon Network USA.
In CYBERVERSE: POWER OF THE SPARK, the AUTOBOTS are closer than ever to finding the ALLSPARK, but completing their quest will be tougher than they could have imagined. They’ll face new enemies and be challenged by Earth’s roughest terrain, and along the way they’ll discover that, when near the ALLSPARK, they are imbued with incredible new powers.
Using one of these mysterious new abilities, the AUTOBOTS will convert Earth vehicles into Spark Armor: the battle-ready gear they need to defeat the DECEPTICONS and continue their mission. They’ll convert boats into mech suits to battle Sharkticons in the water. They’ll change planes into jetpacks to take on the Seeker Squadron in the sky. Any Earth vehicle is a chance to instantly level the playing field, turn the tables, and win the day. With the power of the spark in their circuits, the AUTOBOTS will complete their mission on Earth and begin the perilous journey back home, where that same power holds the key to returning life to their planet.
Click here to see what we thought of the first season of Cyberverse!
Thanks to fellow Seibertron users, Survivefan23 and BlackEyedPrime for also sending this news to us.
What do you think about this trailer? Excited to see what happens next? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!
