Thanks to our regular pal and source of news over on Chinese social media platform Weibo, tf-factory, we have some more Transformers: War for Cybertron Siege images - this time, it's the instruction sheets (or the opening page of each at least) for the Battle Masters in Wave 1: WFC-S1 Firedrive, WFC-S2 Lionizer, and WFC-S3 Blowpipe.

The instructions also contain Chinese characters, meaning this may very well be the international release of the figures, or one of the two major Asian releases (Takara Tomy or Hasbro Asia). Still, check them out below, and let us know what you think!

A little hard to tell since the bottom of his feet are obscured, but his left foot (our right) is not tilted at all, the outer edge is off the ground.

Emerje



i think i have it figured out in my head based on two things i notice in the pics...
1. there is a hinge pin on the inner part of his foot front, where his big toe would be
2. when the foot is angled it doesn’t match the angle of the rest of his foot, tires etc.

my conjecture is that the front toe part of the foot is the only thing that is actually pivoting and is its own separate piece that hinges and pivots on that pin in the big toe area. that could be what is going on, but that shot of the back of the feet doesnt look like it hinges at all and the feet look molded at a set angle.

Man I would love a E-hobby Prowl/Barricade repaint.

I really want to see a deluxe Barricade make it into the line. That would be awesome for him to jump over like that

The reveal of Deluxe Barricade is very interesting. Even more so is the notion that he might be a repaint/retool of Siege Prowl (whom we still have not seen in toy form). What's unfortunate, though, is that it's that much more unlikely we'll see Siege Bluestreak or Smokescreen, at least not in this first part of the trilogy. Using the same mold four times is a bit of a stretch for a one-year long mass retail line, even for Hasbro. It's a shame for that Prowl mold too, because, if we don't get the other "Datsun Bothers," I'm going to pass on the new Prowl. Maybe they'd be part of the second or third chapters of the "War for Cybertron Trilogy?"

It's important to me to have G1 characters still sharing molding as they did in G1. I'd rather stick with the Henkei versions we got almost 10 years ago for Prowl, Bluestreak, and Smokescreen for now. Sideswipe, though, I will be getting, because we now know for certain we're also getting Red Alert from the same mold, so they will match. I'm especially thrilled that Red Alert will have a red helmet like in his cartoon appearances.

I'm looking forward to replacing the Classics/Universe/Henkei versions of the Datsun Autobots. I've never been a fan of those molds, mostly due to the terrible neck area and the poorly designed doors which are very fragile and either fall off during transformation or need to be removed to make things easier. I want to like them, I really do, but every time I handle them or look at them, that's what comes to mind.

It is possible that Barricade is a massive 'reshell' rather than a retool with a new head and color scheme, much like how some CW cars or some TR figures used the same overall body shape but looked different. It is possible that Barricade is even a completely new car mold intended to be used for someone else and they just added some roof lights and a new head.

I'm with ya, I prefer all the datsun boys being the same mold also. Love the fact they bringing barricade in. I'll definitely grab him. But I also don't see them using the same mold 4 times. Even though I would love it if they did the original seekers then did the rainmakers!!!

Don't count on Barricade being a simple redeco, or even based on Prowl, just yet. His IDW design takes cues from both G1 Micromaster Barricade, and Movie Barricade. Chances are we'll get a mix. Wouldn't be the first time we got a cop toy in the form of a racing car:

It's also possible Barricade is just a redeco of the Red Alert tooling of Sideswipe :SG-CONS:

Good point: any car mode with a lightbar is eligible. I mean, eHobby Clamp Down, a police car, is in fact just a redecoed Red Alert (based on his Diaclone release). Poor paranoid Alert...

I'm aware, but my point was exploring the less obvious ideas. Given Barricade could end up as a G1-ified Movie Barricade it is very likely he'd at least get a head based on Evergreen Barricade.

This leans a little more toward the obvious, but Deluxe Barricade could also be a redeco & cotool of Mirage. G1 Barricade and G1 Mirage turn into F1 racecars (Semi-related, even - Mirage is a Ligier JS11 and Barricade a JS31), they could easily share transformation engineering looking at G1 Barricade. And going the G1 Barricade route would be fitting given the presence of the Micromasters in the line. Movie Barricade's popularity could well result in some level of movie reference on him, but it might not be to a huge degree.

That's what I was thinking might happen. I kinda hope he gets some compatibility with the rest of the Race Track Patrol not dissimilar to Mini-Con-esque compatibility. Not saying it'd be like Armada where they'd reveal a new weapon (though, I'd love that) but more like T30's Armada Starscream where the pegs are there, but it's mostly just for show. Oh well, I doubt it's gonna happen

So do we now know all of the non-exclusive deluxe class?

Sideswipe
Cog
Hound
Ironhide
Chromia
Sixgun
Red Alert
Prowl
Mirage
Impactor

Skytread
Reflector
Brunt
Barricade

I wonder if we will get a full 16 mainline deluxes?

Okay.... Sorry to point out the obvious... but aren't we getting a Studio Series Barricade....at $19.99? and keep in mind that just because it says Wfc doesn't mean it's true. It could always be a screwup.
