A while ago, we put up an which featured many nice, HD, stock photos for the new Siege: War for Cybertron Trilogy toyline. Thanks to seibertron user Cyberpath, Dengeki Hobby finally put up an article featuring the stock photos for the Decepticons and more. Out of these stock photos we've picked out the six new stock photos. It comprises of two new Megatron stock photos, which mounts the fusion cannon onto his arm, unlike the original stock photos. We also have another Megatron photo using Blowpipe. Then we have Leader Shockwave using the Blowpipe fire effect with the second configuration for his additional parts. Finally we have Hound and Skytread wielding the Micro Master packs. So thoughts on these photos? Tell us in the pub forums below!

I think it's a shame that for Flywheels they didn't make two merging Tfs like Battletrap. Still, a better toy than the last one we got - and I'm not over yet not getting a Triple Changer version. It seems that the character is cursed... or not very popular, at least.

Skytread/Flywheels being exactly like Battletrap was probably wishful thinking on our part. The two individual bots are much more complex than most Legends, effectively being Triplechangers themselves. They probably only were able to budget them by only having three other new Legends molds in the line (Beachcomber, Slash, and Windcharger), along with three slight retools (Tailgate, Cindersaur, and Outback), and one minor repaint of a much older figure (Skrapnel). Skrapnel is likely the biggest factor in us getting Battletrap since he was basically a budget freebie saving money they could use on the Duocon. If Siege Deluxe really are $17.99 that's not enough to cover two Legends, let alone two Legends that complex.

And personally I'm very glad they didn't go the lazy way and make the Duocons just another pair of Triplechangers. It works as a club exclusive, but we deserve something more faithful at retail.

Personally I think it's a shame we got two TF's that merged into one like Battletrap.

That was what made the Duocons fun, two alt modes into one robot mode. They screwed up Battletrap and made things right for Flywheels, here's hoping they go back and "fix" Battletrap.

I don't ... I don't understand what you mean? Or what you want? To have a Battletrap that doesn't turn into two separate robots you could just ... not transform them into separate robots? It's the easiest mod ever; you don't have to change the toy, you just have to pretend.

Depends on the connection points I think it would be a shame if they weren't compatible.

I'm honestly not too surprised. HasTak figured out how to pull that stunt off way back in 2005 with Cybertron Defense Scattorshot, and repeated it in 2015 with Combiner Wars Megatron.


And that was such a neat stunt, kind of blew my mind when it came out. Arms connected to a carousel that can turn around once the shoulder joints are swung up.

Agreed!

And I think it hurt the look of the combined robot form, especially those clunky legs.

I agree as well. I think Battletrap is quite fun and I've enjoyed the figure a lot, but after seeing Flywheels and how tight and focused of a package he is, I also wish BT was not two robots.

I gave the Battletrap boys CW Megatron's weapons. Combining weapons for combining bots made sense and they look good with the individual bots as well as the combined figure (combined).

I plan on giving battle trap the Decepticon air patrol ;-) I would settle for the other half of the team to just be redecos just to give to Flywheels.

While I only have half of PotP Battletrap, I'll agree that the extra parts needed for Battleslash and Roadtrap can be a bit in the way. No argument. But it was the only way to do him as a regular retail release under the constraints of PotP. But who knows, maybe they will do a Battletrap-only retool if Flywheels sells well.

So did the Star Saber (albeit less so because of the unified colors), but it's the fun kind of ridiculous. Hopefully this sword stays combined better, though!

I did miss Powerglide but I don't mind Viper redecoed as Tailwind but who knows, A-10 that turns into a gun, and also i do want Storm Cloud and Whisper turning into Dark Star Saber. :michaelbay:

I think what Burn is getting at is: what was sacrificed in PotP Battletrap to give him his extra robot modes?

I had Flywheels as a kid. He definitely looks superior to Battletrap. I can't wait to get him. One of the few figures I am going to get from this line (all Micromasters, the weapons-maybe, the city add-on deluxes, and Flywheels).

I'm glad that they preserved the Duocons concept, yet a Blitzwing redeco to pair with the Triple Changer Battletrap would have been nice.

I know I convinced everyone Leader Megs was overrated but come on, we still have to give credit where its due, that headsculpt was excellent:

And when you think about it, Megatron headsculpts are usually great. My best of list mentions another one too. https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... pts/36908/

Image

This headsculpt was also great

Image

Image


And this one was just so cool as a hybrid design

Image

So while this one is nice, I think its simply par for the course for megatron headsculpts. I still think the Gen Leader one is superior.

Also, is it just me or does the deco on Megatron not really show battle damage, but rather simply dirt. Like he fell in some mud.

Warden said they are compatible. I imagine there's a ball joint about the size of Battleslash's head used to connect the tank to the jet.

Gotta disagree there. Leader Megs is o.k. But there is no contest with the finely chiseled evilness that is the new face:

R.I.D and the others are o.k sculpts but are not G1. This is G1 as he's supposed to look.
