Thanks to Seibertronian Lunatic Prime and a UV light we're getting our clearest look at all the hidden details on Voyager Optimus Prime and Megatron's boxes. This goes beyond the "simple" hidden messages found on promotional Siege posters last year. Revealed under the right lighting not only do we get code words that can be used on the Transformers website (though strangely the code on Optimus Prime's box is written as "Lacon" instead of "Iacon"), but also several new character details, faction symbols, and the character's name at the bottom. But more than anything it's just a really cool feature!

I dont know if it was just a fluke, or if some of those early wave figures just didnt have them, because a one friend got them early too, and he doesn't have it eithet, while another friend got his just a couple weeks ago, and they do have the blacklght bits.
Interesting. I wonder if we'll see a revision that corrects the "Lacon" lettering on Optimus Prime's Voyager box. This kind of stuff will sure drive completionists crazy.

Yeah that reality has been a constant for a loooong while now IMO.

I will say Walmart is still good to watch out for, just because I've had some rather interesting luck there. Mainly with the POTP stuff, but I've had the early stock before release Roddy Unicronus, the only place to get wave 2 Sludge and Snarl, and just released half priced clearance on OP and regular Roddy.
Otherwise, Walmart so far has been rather disappointing as all of them I've been in do not have even a tag for Siege leaders, Studio Series, the trading cards, or Botbots. They've only had low quantities of the weaponizers and pegs full of deluxe class.

We also cannot understate how unusual this truly is, as not only has there been no reported sightings of this figure yet, but there has also never been an official statement directly from the mouths of anyone at either Hasbro or Takara even confirming this figures existence, let alone visage. This seems to suggest that some retailer may have accidentally released the figure early, in which case the hunt is most certainly on for Siege fans everywhere, or that TonTon is a HasTak employee. If you happen to be as lucky as TonTon and find this bewildering figure, be sure to let us know in your area’s sightings forum.
Special thanks to Riley Hoffman, Survivefan23, and Powermaster Ultra Prime for all sending this review our way!
Seeing as this is our first in-depth look at the figure, be sure to discuss your thoughts on the figure (as well as how TonTon may have acquired the figure) in the forums below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news and reviews!

I mean I know they'll have planned some big Toyfair reveal for these figures, and I'm sure there will be some surprises (Siege Omega being properly revealed fingers crossed) but they have to know by now that the gig is up. These figures exist and anyone who cares knows it.

The smaller robot has to be the weaker of the modes, like Ultra Magnus, a bit chunkier (tho not Energon bad) than I would have liked and the G1 style vs. Cybertron... It makes me wanna yell:

Still, look like a solid toy for those who don't have the Cybertron original and/or don't plan to get Siege Magnus.

If only his smaller robot head was that of the mouthed Cybertron Optimus. Then he'd actually shoot up a couple point up for me but as he is right now, it somewhat stink of compromise to appease TEH GEEWUN. I'm really tempted to get one for custom fodder, however.
Edit: Beside people saying it could work as Nova Prime, I want to turn mine into neo-G1/Aligned Prima by painting him white, light blue and silver.

That's a good idea. And the fact that the super mode is 100% partforming open an infinity of possibilities.
