Thanks to an early posting from online resource IGN, we have the full reveals from the War for Cybertron: Siege line currently happening at New York Comic Con 2018, as Hasbro Transformers are showing off the moment we've all been waiting for: the Decepticon faction is here, and ready to steamroll their way to victory.

Check out in the official render images below the classic line-up of Megatron, Shockwave, Soundwave, Refraktor (Reflector, with some changes to its alt mode to become what looks to be Shockwave's gun), and Starscream, the leader of the Seekers in his Tetrajet mode. Take a look below, and join the discussion!

This morning, during Hasbro's Transformers panel, a bunch of brand-new baddies were revealed from the War For Cybertron: Siege line: Megatron, Shockwave, Soundwave, Refraktor, and Starscream (yes, actually Starscream, not Blitzwing.)

The designs all take cues from the classic Generation 1 aesthetic, but with some modern retooling. For instance, Megatron has an all new Cybertronian tank vehicle mode.

This lineup will be hitting stores early 2019, as well as HasbroToyShop.com.

So is Soundwave a space barge now? I can tug it!

Thar Reflector, hot diggity damn!

Whelp, that Shockwave just nullified any need for the large Cyberverse one.

REFLECTOR!? IS THAT A REFLECTOR I SEE?! WAS THAT EVEN CONSIDERED?! Did we even stop to consider reflector? I don't think we did.

Reflector looks so good! :BOWDOWN:
I still don't know what Soundwave transforms into but I will probably buy it.

So reflector definitely looks like 3 bots in Camera mode. Are they 3 identical bots to buy separately? Or do we buy a Deluxe/Voyager reflector pack and get all 3?

looks like the same bot we have to buy thee times. Each of them comes with 1/3 of the scope and stand.

Kudos on the design, terrible idea on the packaging. Assuming they are Deluxe, and normal wave distribution with only 2 per case... :HEADHURTS:

these look awesome so far... not sure how many bots is reflector nor what sound wave is supposed to be but I like them lots...

the tetra jets look a bit less imposing with their blunted out nosecones...

think what they did with shockwave and the weapon gimmicks is pretty good.

now if only they gave TR sound wave those g1 style weapons

Could I not just buy Shockwave but without all that unnecessary crap with him? It looks like he killed other Shockwaves and used their body parts for evil reasons

Soundwave looks ok i guess if you like Soundwave. Alt-mode looks like junk though but preferable to a tape deck at least.

Megatron looks decent. Pass on the sword but it looks like it's got the gun turret inside it so looks necessary for alt-mode annoyingly.

Reflector is and always will be a stupid concept but if you're gonna buy it then i suppose that looks the best way.

Starscream doesn't do it for me at all. Was never fond of the G1 seeker bot form anyways but that cybertronian jet isn't my thing. (hey at least it looks cybertronian though, unlike certain autobots vehicle forms)

I'd assume legend class. Still that puts us at least $30, which I'll gladly pay. A three pack would simplify my life though.

Reflecor FINALLY gets some love.

So what size is Shockwave without the armor, Voyager?

I have no problem with the price on buying 3 of them. I think the problem is going to be finding 3 of them unless Hasbro sends a solid case of them instead of mixed with others. Plus, there is no legends class in Siege.

I'm assuming he's voyager size with that silly backpack crud to make it Leader costs.

Nice to see some Cybertron modes on Cybertron figures even if Soundwave is a...a...a *maybe it can be a lamp post and salvage the alt mode or something). Still might be a possible buy, hoping his mini bots are good this time around.

Megatron doesnt look a vast difference to the TR figure to justify a buy, other than having him being different to a blitzwing repaint, but nah, money saved.

Reflector hell yes,

Shockwave, I really like the spaceship mode on this one (reminds a bit of SDF-1 and japanese anime in general, especially how robot mode can use the platform) so it will likely replace my energon shockwave as my 'toy' display version.

Starscream, looks a bit of a mess on his undercarriage but picking up either way as it's different from the classics and the POTP and CW versions were very easy passes for me. In robot mode it looks hard to tell that it doesnt turn into a G1 Jet rather than a G1 Tetra Jet.

As choosey as I'm over this line, Hasbro is doing pretty well so far.

I often see the car part of Battletrap selling in stores without the helicopter guy (I can't remember the indiviual names they've been given) to be found at all.

Shockwave is absolutely bought on sight, I'm guessing we would've got this exact figure in Power of the Primes had Shockwave won that fan poll. Soundwave I'd say is a maybe at this point, the robot mode is nice, but I don't like the battle damage detailing and I'm not sure what to think about the vehicle mode. Megatron looks okay, but I'm skipping both him and Starscream because I'm still satisfied with the Combiner Wars versions.

I'm a bit confused as to whether or not Shockwave has an alt-mode without the backpack required. I wouldn't have minded buying a voyager class item of just that figure but Leader price is way too much when I don't like the backpack part at all.

May or may not get Megatron if I may or may not get the Prime. I dunno. This line's not doing it for me generally.
