Many fans are looking forward to the Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege WFC-S27 Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron, and definitely for the WFC-S28 Commander Class Jetfire. While we have gotten numerous in hand photos of the two, today, we have English reviews for them, courtesy of Chefatron. If you forgot, the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron has Voyager Class Skywarp, as well as Battle Masters Decepticon Fracas (Scourge's Targetmaster), Shrute (current name for Spinister's Targetmaster, Hairsplitter), and Terror-Daxtyl. Chefatron is very content with the set, enjoying the additional Battle Masters, and appreciating the unified color scheme, a welcome surprise for him. He ends up giving the set a 10 out of 10. Watch the review below!


Chefatron also has a review up for up for Jetfire, and we can truly see how big he is once again, compared to an upgraded Unite Warriors Computron, who is the same height. We also see an undocumented feature not in the instructions, where he has a removable engine, where a Titan Master/Prime Master could take his place. Chefatron shows to be very pleased by the figure, and also gives the figure a 10 out of 10. The review can be view below!

Well Skywarp looks really great in his purple, silver and "lighter shade of black" deco =P~
I'm seriously looking forward to completing the Seeker set.

I used to not care for Chefatron, but I like how playful he's gotten ;)^

It's nice to see Red Wing and Skywarp has fixed the chest popping action.

You're not alone. I'm quite happy with TR Megatron, so have no desire to replace him with Siege Megs.

Same here. TR Megs is a great figure.
I do want Selects Megatron, but he'll be Megaplex in my collection.

That Jetfire though....... :x

Hasbro Pulse has the release date set for October 1st, Amazon has it for October 4th, but, Big Bad Toy Store still has Omega Supreme slated for August 2019. It's hard to exactly pinpoint what this could be due to, but hopefully, more details will stroll in during San Diego Comic-Con.

The madness continues for Siege Voyager Class Thundercracker, who on Hasbro Pulse awaits release on October 1st, and on Target on October 6th. Meanwhile, Amazon has him set for August 1st, and Big Bad Toy Store is set to release in July.

Hey, I know I'm really late to this, but haven't had internet all day until now. I would like to point out:

Y'know and maybe get some news credits... I know I kinda buried it in the bottom of the post, and I have no idea on how to submit things to the news staff...

Technically, you are the first one to mention that, to my knowledge, so I will hand ya a news credit!

On the top right hand side of the website, one option should say "Submit News."

The great coincidence with that picture is that I'm going to meet Dan Gilvezan at the end of this month.

Got my jet fire in the mail today. I’m still undecided on if I’m keeping him, or making a few bucks on eBay.......



I really kinda want this guy, but the Siege line has been so incredibly disappointing to me, I’m afraid of opening it and being let down.

I'm sure a good deal of Siege's budget has gone into making Jetfire a good figure, there's a high chance you'll like him.

That's kinda uncool to say that... there are a lot of other people who have had their order delayed, and you come along with a ho-hum attitude on whether or not you'll even keep him >:oP

Has QC truly been that bad for Siege? Beside the odd loose single ankle on figures I've had no crummy ones compared to POTP where it seemed like everything was a factory error.

I think they're just perceiving it that way because of brand unification knocking the lenses out of their Cult of Takara goggles.

Only Siege figure I've had QC issues with was my Skytread; everything else has had great QC.

Apparently Omega is delayed because it failed a drop test. This is coming from Kapow Toys Facebook page courtesy of In Demand toys

Aww man that’s a bummer I’ve been hardcore diggin’ it so far. What specifically have been the disappointments? The price increase or Legends going away or...?

Everyone’s got a point gang give him a chance to make one. There’s being belligerent and negative or deliberately stirring a hornets nest and the there’s just a guy saying he’s giving the line a chance and has been let down.

And he’s trying to maybe make someone else’s day who got skunked, who knows. I’m just sayin’. ;)^
