It seems like fans just can't get enough of the upcoming "2019" Transformers War for Cybertron Siege line, which should be available toward the end of this year. So, for you all we have a complete gallery of the display shown during the SDCC 2018 breakfast event.

So amongst that seemingly civil war carnage (where are all the Decepticons at?) you can find:
Hound
Battle Master Lionizer
Micromasters two packs Battle Patrol, Race Patrol, Rescue Patrol
COG
Ironhide
Chromia
Leader class Ultra Magnus

You can also see the official renders here.

For a view of the whole gallery, you can click on any of the images below. And be sure to let us know, if you have not already, which of these you are most looking foward to.

Also, we have a video of the display so be sure to check that out too.

I am loving that new Ironhide. Everyone looks fantastic but there are some needs and wants(though "need" technically leans towards "want"). Prime, Sideswipe, and Ironhide are needs because I don't have any version of them yet for CHUG. Wants are Ultra Magnus, but I have the CW Leader, Hound, but I have the Universe Deluxe. Everyone is a want though. I love everything here and this line shows that Hasbro DOES listen to the fans, and loves them too. ;)^ :HASBRO:

BTW, weapons-oriented gimmicks are definitely fine with me. I prefer it actually.

Okay...I'm going back on what I said earlier but ironhide as won me over, I love his hammer. Hound is making me reconsider as well...still want to know if you could put magnus armour on prime...

I need that Magnus in my life. :DANCE: :ic$:

White Cab, that is not a repaint of Optimus + Armor / Trailer. :HALUC:

At least Ironhide is suitably Cybertronian.

I’m not sure about all the greebling, especially on Mags. Still looks like a great line on the whole, though.

I'm going to say that is a no. Look at the arms. The armor slides over UM's arms. Prime arms have truck kibble that would be in the way.

Aww, that's a shame as that would have been quite fun and enhanced playability between the two. Especially since it looks like the white cab started life as the op mold before the changes were done to make the rid2001 alt

I think it says Trump 2020

jk it says Police

I highly doubt that since voyager optimus is a very different mold from the smallr inner white prime.

Still waiting for some Cons, otherwise it isn't going to be much of a war (unless it is going to be an Autobot Civil Wa)

Trust me, as probably the biggest fan of combiners here, I get the sentiment. But I don't know if it was done with malice, it seems often there are so many "cooks in the kitchen", things easily get overlooked.

Developer: OK we want to recreate the pair Ironhide & Chromia.
Developer 2: -OK we have a great fembot mold,but we aren't doing combiners for this line so we just have to remove that.

I don't know...I know it goes against Hasbro's MO for the past several lines, especially since there was bleeding over form T30 into CW, and every line after that. One would think it would require more effort to remove the Combiner functionality, but who knows...Even if the 5MM holes are gone, if that Combiner Port is still there (which it probably isn't), I'm definitely going to try to find a way to alter Chromia to make her a limb ;) .



Now I have a question of my own....Does anyone think this line will have a Titan, if so what should it be.... 8-)

We did Top 5 Best :) https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... oys/35702/

As for Top 5 worst, I dont really think the gimmicks are bad themselves its just that they are poorly executed on some toys.

I think this titan should be omega supreme, complete the devey/omega rivalry and then in the second part of wfc, give us scorpy.

As for chromia...couldn't you just get a spare moonracer or nova star and do a head swap and a nice new paint job?

Still not really a fan of any of these. I don't mind the aesthetic with all that detailing and such, it's just there aren't really many characters here I've ever had much interest in and those vehicle modes are mostly just too blocky for me. Oddly my fave bit is those transparent bits used to make the weapons look like they're firing. I've always liked that kind of thing on action figures and occasionally made some crappy attempts at my own addons for my TFs.

Yeah mine look crappy but you get the idea.

That could be a way to go...I'm not really a talented painter however so I'd have to commission it. Also 100% Agreed on who the Titan should be, for obvious reasons ;) (also it fits especially with the Cybertron setting)...as to whether we'll get one or not...that remains to be seen.

I wonder if there would be a way to just kit bash a combiner port back into Chromia and forgo having to paint anything? :-?

OF course that would all depend on if you could find a spare Moonracer. :BANG_HEAD:

Loving this line.

I'm especially fond of the RiD-esque Ultra Magnus (probably "THE" Ultra Magnus, speaking of IDW comics continuity) and Cog, which might transform into some weaponry for Fortress Maximus (and if that is the case, I want a Sixguns for Metroplex too).

I also like the new Micromasters.

Easy passes for me on half of them. Liking the RID look Ultra Magnus but not sure if it can carry cars. Haven't picked up a Chromia yet, so that might be a purchase down the line tho it's between her and hound that are the worst looking of the line so far to me.
Cogs the one must for me so far.

I wouldn't mind if the Titans of this line are completely made up/purpose deigned bases/toys for the micromasters.

Just to give the names of the micromasters and show their combined forms

Two of them look good, but the Race Patrol is just two cars stuck on top of each others. Ugly.

Eighty feisty, ableit dreich, reigning sovereign sheikhs' heirs, deifing society, inveigled a weird foreign leisurely scientist's fanciest eight rottweilers to forfeit sufficient obeisance, veiling a heinous seismic gneiss vein heist, wherein they abseiled heights of neighboring ancient lithofacies, heigh-ho-ing their weighty freight with beige greige skeins, later efficiently surfeiting on stupefacient codeine.

But yeah Siege... ;)
