A video from unicron.com surfaced on Facebook with John Warden talking about the new Jetfire and Omega Supreme toys done by him and his team. The big takeaway from it was the fact that both feature backwards compatibility with the previous toyline trilogy John Warden worked on, Prime Wars.

Omega Supreme has ports on his track which are compatible with the bases in Titans return including of course the other Titans Trypticon and Fortress Maximus. This is so that fans and kids can build their own massive citis with the huge bases. You can see those connecting ports on the image below.

Jetfire also has backwards compatibility but with Prime Masters and Titan Masters. Both of those smaller kinds of bots can sit in Jetfire's cockpit.

These are just fun Easter Egg type features that will not be documented since they are meant as a bonus to fans who already have figures from prevous lines. If you don't have those previously released figures, don't worry there is a lot to enjoy from these fgures which each have their own special features.

Another point regarding Omega Supreme, John Warden did confirm that his bot mode is meant to scale with Devastator.

Let us know if any of this info makes you happy and if you feel Hasbro is taking things up a notch with their Transformers toys.

So I'll take this opportunity to give Hasbro some much do appreciation and respect. Well Done. ;)^ I know I've been critical, and I'll continue to call out things I feel are glaring omissions and missteps, but I'll try to do better to give props when do. This is about the best outcome one could imagine. I fully intended to make Siege Omega Supreme fit within my giant city network, prior to this announcement, but this just makes it all the more satisfactory. Also I fully intended on getting Jetfire, since I never got the T30 one, and this one is actually (seemingly) better...The TM/PM BWC wasn't necessary, but is certainly welcome. These little things definitely do push the RIGHT kind of buttons with and old fuddy-duddy like myself. 8-)

The biggest takeaway I took from this is...unicron.com is still around? That was the first transformers site I discovered back 97

Yup - http://www.unicron.com/

I'm technically still a member of their news team, but I rarely makes posts there anymore since the majority of the news-posting switched to the Unicron.com Facebook (I'll still post things like RoboCon coverage, though).

That´s nice and all, but John Warden dropped the ball. No crotch hatch on Jetfire to recreate that iconic scene from the G1 cartoon is just a slap on fans faces. #notbuyinganything. [-(

I’m kidding of course. Its a great way of keeping play patterns from older lines. I’ll have Ginrai fly Skyfire around. :-D :DANCE: :APPLAUSE:

No, there are some serious gaps in the pre-orders for both Siege and Studio Series. For Siege, no sign of pre-orders for Brunt, Refractor and presuming Barricade in wave 4, and no sign of the micromasters at all past wave 2. For Studio Series, the first 3 constructions are missing from pre-orders, while later numbers in the series do have pre-orders.

Basically Hasbro jumped the gun in the excitement of all the new "announcements" and put wave 4 up (minus one secret figure, likely Barricade) ahead of wave 3. Although as of yesterday Entertainment Earth was taking orders for wave 3 Deluxe cases, but they're no longer listed.

I'm also seriously wondering whether the rumored Leader Astrotrain was some bad info. It is weird that we heard absolutely nothing about him. The rumor was from something found on Walmarts site, right? Isn't Walmart also going to have the G1 re-release for Astrotrain? Could that have been the mix-up?

It was found in Walmart computers, but the codes matched other Siege Leaders. If it's real it wont be released until the end of the year so they're just holding it and Barricade for later, probably SDCC.

Reissue Astrotrain isn't coming until 2020 and we only just had the poll so I doubt it's in their computers yet.

Perhaps wave 4 is pioneering the individual figure ordering system?

Maybe? I know siege in general is the first time Target had DCPI numbers for each figure.... so I think it may have started with wave one.

As a line, Titans Return is my favorite and this makes Jetfire a must.

Hm... That's interesting that Apeface might be getting a new voyager. Maybe as an online exclusive like Greenlight?

My guess he's in a regular retail assortment. Southernhobby put up preorders for a wave 4 and 5 case assortment of voyagers around the same time they put astrotrain up, but they quickly took the listings down.

If we're getting a new Voyager Apeface, that means a new Snapdragon can't be far behind. They're the only two guys in that subgroup.

The first time I saw this yesterday, tape mode wasn't bad, but it wasn't great since the legs didn't seem to sit flush with the body to make a decent tape deck. Now, it looks great, because the legs look like they can sit flush, so that's awesome. A triple changing Soundwave is superior :michaelbay:

Oh wow. Well, here's hoping that means Snapdragon gets a new listing soon
