Next on the list is from YouTuber doublej101, which is where we got our Ultra Magnus review from. We got this thanks to a notification from Seibertronian Grimyeal.
And finally, one final one from Peaugh, YouTube legend. He shows discontent with the size, one we're sure many can agree with.
Annnnd, that's all folks! So, thoughts on this toy now? Tell us in the Pub forums below!

Nathaniel Prime wrote:Shockwave still looks awesome. About the people saying he isn't worth 50$, hear me out. Siege Shockwave's alt mode would look pretty boring to younger fans, upside down gun and all. The extra bits make for a much more pleasing spaceship. In robot mode, the extra pieces also make the robot mode more interesting, and arguably cooler. I don't want to start a heated debate, but I would love to hear your opinions on the matter. IMO, Shockwave is worth it.
He's between a deluxe & voyager. Way too small for leader prices. I'm hoping Black Mamba or Wei Jiang will make an oversized version.

I also agree with those that say the extra armor pieces definitely help fill out alt mode. And I totally would expect Shockwave to McGuiver his sled into power armor if he *somehow* got in over his head in a fire fight.

The court battle against KOs have been won by Hasbro. So unless it's already being made and shipped out of China, this scenario is very unlikely.

As a bonus, Survivefan has provided us with the access codes for several other Transformers: SIEGE figures on the Teletraan 1 site. Each provides you with a short date file on each character, just as with Greenlight.
Optimus Prime: IACON
Ultra Magnus: FORGEOFSOLUS
What do you think of the prospect of having a finished, official roster for the Elita-1 combiner started in Power of the Primes last year? Do you think the "Classified" fourth limb member is none other than Lancer from the original G1 cartoon episode "The Search for Alpha Trion?" Share your theories with your fellow fans in the comments below and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

I wonder if she'll come packed with a Battle Master like Greenlight will?

Some bonus trivia. The new name for the combination, Orthia (replacing the earlier Elita Infinite), is thought to derive from a Greek goddess Orthia / Artemis Orthia. Artemis is closely associated with the hunt, and the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia was located in Sparta and represented the coming together of the four villages that made up the citystate. Sparta was a citystate known for its warriors, with its best known pop culture Spartans including Kratos of the God of War series and Leonidas from 300. The fact the name references a sanctuary associated with four villages coming together to form a state known for its warriors is a great way to reference four robots coming together to make a super robot combiner. Thanks to Purple Heart on the TFW2005 boards for sleuthing that one.
That is a really cool reference and very appropriate given the theme of the combiner!

Nope. It's new.ZeroWolf wrote:I like how the codes are throw backs in some cases like Magnus's being the Forge of Solus. As for Orthia, where does that name come from? Is there any G1 link with that name?

Nerd time!ZeroWolf wrote:I like how the codes are throw backs in some cases like Magnus's being the Forge of Solus. As for Orthia, where does that name come from? Is there any G1 link with that name?
Orthia is another name for the Greek Goddess, Artemis, or the Roman named Diana. She was the Goddess of the hunt, often seen with a bow and her hunting dogs. So no G1 reference that I can see, but a cool and fitting name none the less.
I know who will be getting to use the Cog Bow!
Edit: Awesomely ninja'd by Lorekeeper!
that bit about unification is super cool!

She'd make a pretty good buckler in alt-mode. So just an upscaled Micromaster then.Wolfman Jake wrote:I wonder if we can find a fan transformation for SIEGE Chromia to turn her into a weapon for Orthia, kind of like how Piranacon could wield an extra sixth member of the Seacons as a Targetmaster? It would be nice to get the whole female Autobot team together in Orthia and not leave Chromia the odd one out.
Well this is interesting and cool news. I wonder if they will re-release Elita in the Siege line as she getting kinda hard to find at a decent price now?
Edit: found her at two places for a decent price, still curious if we'll see a re-release with Hasbro making a deal out of this.

Considering her alt mode is basically a stick with wheels, I could totally see this. If you attach her accessories a certain way, she could probably serve as some kind of big gun. Time will tell, I suppose.

Rodimus Prime wrote:At least Elita will have the entire team. I wonder why they chose Lancer to be the limb over Chromia. Is it because Chromia is better known? Why didn't they just make both of them limbs, so they can be interchangeable?
I’m totally spit balling. But in IDW didn’t Chromia and Ironhide have a thing? I know her and Windblade were like on&Johnson for a while. So I think they wanted her in Siege, and as we found out they had plenty of ammo for the other limbs.
That said.... I want a Walgreens exclusive repaint for Combiner Chromia lol

I think so, and they are in the same wave.SpikeyTigertron wrote:I’m totally spit balling. But in IDW didn’t Chromia and Ironhide have a thing?
