Ready! Aim! Fire! Thanks to toy wholesaler website NDA-Toys, we now have in-package pictures of the Battle Master class from the forthcoming Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege toyline. Nestled within these pictures though is a bigger surprise, Decepticon Blowpipe! This marks the first Decepticon we have seen for this line. Like his fellow Battle Masters, he transforms into a weapon (in his case a gun) and comes with a yellow blast effect. Together with Firedrive and Lionizer, the three are the first wave of Battle Masters. We have mirrored the in-package pictures for your convenience below.

It's nice seeing more pictures of the Targetmasters, but I'm still only planning to pick up Lionizer. It's nice to see that Hasbro is releasing the Targetmasters that go with the Targetmasters from Titans Return

Disappointed that Blowpipe only comes with one Fire Blast. Based on the SDCC promotion, they're not just a fun play feature, they can also be used for dynamic displays. If they don't repeat the same fire blast effects in future waves, I may have to pick up some doubles.

The effect from Blowpipe looks like it will work well for targets, rather than the weapons. Ironhide and Sideswipe both have pegs on their torsos that would make it appear that they had been shot when Bliwpipe's Fire Blast is applied.

Well it is indeed quite nice to see we are getting the partners for the Targetmasters two toylines later. Better late than never, I suppose! And it's quite neat because Triggerhappy was my favorite deluxe from TR. :-D

These are some of the coolest boxes I've ever seen for Transformers. I love the G1 boxes, but holy crap are these awesome.

I kinda wish Ultra Magnus' altmode was more G1, and I wonder how hard it would be to mod him to make that happen. But he's still "Shut up and take my money!" The one real complaint I have about him is the gun. Not the color (I kinda expected this might happen. Do bear in mind the toyfair displays are generally handpainted samples), but the fact that it isn't dual-pegged like the original so that it can be held differently by the cab robot. It has a faux-handle on top, but that's about as useful as the decorative handle on the G1 Optimus Prime toy's gun.

Looking forward to Sideswipe because Universe Sideswipe is rarespensive on eBay.

Also looking forward to Cog, going to be nice to have him to go with Fort Max.

Optimus is cool and desirable and is kinda making me wish I hadn't splurged on CW Optimus when I finally found a tolerable price.

Firedrive.., I'm half-hoping he'll get pushed back to a later wave so that they can fix him because they completely screwed up his weapon mode because they were looking at the stupid also-botched Legends toy instead of how he's supposed to look. :-x But it's probably more realistic to hope that correcting him by modding won't be too difficult....

His weapon mode is all wrong because of where the barrels end up. On the original Firebolt, the barrels were attached to the back of the legs:

And the weapon mode looked liked this:

Compared to that, the Siege version has been turned around backwards and then had the barrels sawn off and remounted behind the head.

Interesting that the Hasbro packaging features full ID codes:

Firedrive: WFC-S1
Lionizer: WFC-S2
Blowpipe: WFC-S3

Note: they are NOT the TakaraTomy codes, nor do they line up in number.

Apparently new factions too? Unless that was pointed out. Right above the names.

"Battlemasters" because the word "targetmasters" is too gun specific. Battlemasters can be a generic "weapon" designation.

Blowpipe's is different from the others, which made me curious. Thanks for the heads up though.

I think the :BOT: and :CON: battlemasters have their own logo.

Actually they are part of the established factions, they are just before the name... And in blowpipes case because of the angle you can't make out the con sigil but you can make out the con purple (god bless hasbro for colour coding the factions)

I wonder if instead of a faction symbol that could be a symbol that indicates what part of Cybertron they're from? Firedrive and Lionizer could be Iacon (usually represented as domes and towers) while Blowpipe is Kaon (usually a large pit or pool with something sticking out of the middle). We'll have a better idea when we see more packaging and what type of images show up next to the names.

They mean the new symbols above the names, not the :BOT: / :CON: ones below the names.

That's a nice theory, and would be quite cool if true

I just had a thought, Hasbro had said that figures won't have gimmicks unless the original toy had one. Targetmaster didn't exist until long after Cybertronians came to earth, so these figures are out of place, no?
