Transformers News: NETFLIX Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Spoiler Pack #2 Revealed

Also included is a Slitherfang repaint in red, and one of the swords, and two of the guns from the 2018 Amazon Exclusive version of Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime. What's interesting here is that while the trailer comes from the Earthrise Leader Class Prime, Nemesis Prime himself is a redeco'ed Seige Voyager Class Prime.

Here is the new updated description for the figure as taken from Entertainment Earths website:


Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Leader Nemesis Prime Spoiler Pack - Exclusive

Description

Hidden within this pack are spoilers for the War for Cybertron series! Fans shouldn't decode the Cybertronian if they don't want key events from the show revealed! This figure is inspired by the character as seen in the War for Cybertron series. With 63 deco ops, this series-inspired Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Leader Nemesis Prime Spoiler Pack - Exclusive figure brings fans the most detailed and series-accurate version of the character.

Build the ultimate battlefield inspired by scenes from the Transformers War for Cybertron series. This pack includes a Leader Class 7-inch scale figure inspired by the Decepticon as seen in the War for Cybertron series. With 63 deco ops and battle-worn details this is the most series-accurate version of the character.

Includes Nemesis Prime and Slitherfang figures, Energon cubes hidden in modeling compound, 1 blast effect, 2 wrist blasters, trailer, sword, Ion Blaster, and instructions. That's a lot of fun in a box with secret codes you can translate!



The door now opens to speculation on Nemesis Primes importance to the Netflix series (will Nemesis get his due in the Earthrise series?).

Thanks to all the Seibertronians who let us know about this!

What do you think of this? Disappointed with what was chosen? Do you think he'll be a big part of the Earthrise series? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

Wait...

That's the SIEGE Nemesis Prime with the ER trailer. :shock:

OOOOhhhhhhh.................

Well well well, this make that set MUCH more interesting. Especially because that ugly-ass truck that I skipped suit Nemesis Prime to a T.

If this pop in at Walmart.CA, I'll be preordering. :APPLAUSE:

Not pre-ordering as I just realized I have a butt-ton, metric not American, of pre-orders in place. But if I see this in the store it will be bought on sight just like the first spoiler box.

I would feel bad considering I got the Takara Nemesis Prime from Ages Three and Up

BUT


Since I have him and POTP Nemesis Prime and the deco on this version isn't exactly the same as the Takara one as well as lacking the same sword I now have this cool idea I got to do.


POTP Nemesis Prime with the Takara Siege Nemesis Prime and this boxset one as his henchmen, this fits just right with the kind of character I have my version of Nemesis as, it would be the perfect ego boost that fits my version of the character, now whether this would be actual loyal henchmen or just a couple poor souls that Nemesis captured and converted into lookalikes I haven't decided yet.

Unfortunately it's kind of a no win situation. Even though the Netflix toys that are WM Exclusive "claim" to cover the trilogy in general, by the packaging art and releases its pretty obvious the first 2 waves all center around Siege. If this spoiler box pertains to Earthrise, then so be it, but the verbiage in the description make it seem past tense, as if it was supposed to be included in Siege, which would make the release not really a spoiler at all, just another non-show toy.


One thing is for certain, a few years down the road, the overall positive reaction to most of these toys wont be questioned, but it will be confusing as heck.

When someone says WFC "Megatron" is that...

The Toy
The Series Character based on the toy?
The Toy, based on the Series, Based on the Toy?

PLus there's Earthrise toys in the Siege Animated Series, and no doubt, the cross pollination will continue... 8-}

First off: Crap I didn't want this but now I need it.

Second: The Walmart description loudly announces that this "CONTAINS WHEAT". I assume that might be for the clay or slime or whatever but I find this to be hilarious as hell.

Eeeew siege prime :( interesting choice for the figure, paint job is really nice and slither fang looks good too. Money saved for me which is most needed. If it had of been galaxy repaint I'd have wanted it but with the amount of repaints and exclusives it still. Might happen.

I don't know what to make of this one. I wanted Nemesis Prime but I didn't want it from Earthrise Prime unless it didn't have the trailer. I instead wanted it from Siege Optimus Prime. That having been Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime though since the voyager is well, a voyager. I never expected them to put the Siege voyager with the Earthrise trailer to reach the leader price point. I guess it makes sense since Earthrise Optimus is being released as a voyager without the trailer. So the trailer had to go somewhere right?

I already have Siege Nemesis Prime though. I also have an extra set of cannons and swords from the PotP figure. However, I'll regret not getting this anyway though since it'll most definitely not make it to half price discount like Ultra Magnus and I want that Slitherfang. At the very least, Siege NP looks more like RiD Scourge and Netflix NP looks more like well, Nemesis Prime. If that makes any sense.

It's just kinda annoying that this is two additional uses of the trailer that doesn't come with any of the new Optimus pieces from the upgrade set. It would've been nice if both this and Alternate Universe OP had Roller, the Ion Rifle, the ax and maybe that jetpack too for at least AUOP. I guess it makes sense but it would've been awesome if they added them in, especially for AUOP who got nothing extra. You have them, might as well use them more. Which is also why Netflix NP is coming with the cannons and sword I take it.

Could always be that Nemsis Prime's Earthmode so happens to look like a Cybertron truck.

Ignoring the series and all Nemesis (Siege) and Optimus (Earthrise) having two different looking truck modes despite their robot mode is in my opinion pretty cool.

Just because the toys are different doesn't mean much, I mean why would there be earth modes in Earthrise when theyre not supposed to reach earth till the end? I suspect that in the Netflix series, they won't reach earth straight away. Or they could have Nemesis Prime and prime clash several times on the way to earth, have prime land scan a new alt, have Nemesis land and not care about scanning a new alt as he just wants to find Prime and kill him. Final Battle ensures.

I don't even care so much for the fiction reason, I just think the Earthrise OP mold is a better, more fun toy, and wanted Nemesis on that mold for that reason. Siege is a good enough mold, but I just really prefer Earthrise.

My point was I think for the spoiler packs, fiction plays a big part on what is chosen. Plus there will probably be another nemy anyway, Hasbro/Takara hasn't met an Optimus mold yet they haven't painted black :lol: (barring the odd exceptions of course)
Re: NETFLIX Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Spoiler Pack #2 Revealed (2078133)
Posted by Emerje on August 28th, 2020 @ 4:26pm CDT
A little disappointed that it's the Siege truck since I have the Takara Tomy version. Would really have preferred the Galaxy Upgrade or ER versions, but I'm sure Hasbro will catch up on those two eventually. I'm glad he comes with so much extra stuff to set him apart from the TT version and the colors appear to be a little ligher, but that might just be the lighting. The large stacks from the PotP version should also work on the truck mode even though the photographer didn't show it and that will definitely set apart the truck modes some with the trailer attached.

I think head canon wise the TT version will be Car Robots/RID Black Convoy/Scourge while this one will be straight up Nemesis Prime made by Unicron (a la Unicron Trilogy), which fits since we're getting so many movie figures (to say nothing of a giant Unicron). I want to stop short of calling him Grand Scourge, though.

I would have preferred the Earthrise mold, however, the Siege mold works better for Nemesis. Considering I never picked up Siege Optimus, this guy would look good next to Earthrise Optimus in both modes and make him look different than just being a repaint. I got POTP Nemesis, so I'll definitely pick up this Nemesis if I see him in stores.

I have a feeling Hasbro went with the Siege mold as they aren't giving Nemesis a Matrix so he has no need for an empty chest cavity that clearly holds a Matrix. I know PotP Nemesis had a Matrix but all the PotP leaders had a Matrix.

Nemesis has had a Matrix plenty of times, though, usually called the Dead Matrix, Dark Matrix, Matrix of Conquest, something like that. Many, many Nemesis Prime figures have had Matrixes.

I presume the main reason beyond all else is because of the already existing AU Dead Optimus Prime.

Having two dark colored versions of the Earthrise mold might of not been in Hasbro's best interests.

Hot on the heels of the reveal of the contents of the second Leader Class Spoiler Pack for the Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy series, which is exclusive to Walmart stores in the United States, comes some new images of the two upcoming Voyager Class 3-Packs for the second wave of product: Optimus Prime with Enerax and Sheeldron (sic) and Soundwave with Laserbeak and Ravage! These images come from Chinese website Weibo and were tipped off to us here at Seibertron.com by forum member transformers_va. These pictures appear to be professional product photographs of these figures in and out of package in what is assumed to be their finalized decos, though as we have seen this year, nothing is certain until we have the figures in hand! More on that in a bit. For now, take a look at these new promotional pics below.

We also have some interesting in-hand pictures from Weibo and Reddit to share, thanks to a tip from Seibertron.com forum user Omegatron. These are apparently in-hand pictures of Netflix Soundwave. The biggest difference from the product shots above, though, is that the visor on his face is YELLOW instead of red.

Image

Image

Image


We have seen leaked test shots of other recent figures, such as Earthrise Ramjet and Dirge, with clear, colorless canopies that show up in the product photography on the box, but the actual products shipped had clear orange canopies instead. Similarly, in the product shot above, neither Optimus Prime nor Soundwave's product photos on the back of their boxes match what we can see of the actual product housed inside through the clear plastic window on the front of their respective boxes.

What do you think of these new images of the second wave of Netflix War for Cybertron Trilogy Voyager Class toys? Are the extra paint apps and deco tweaks on Earthrise Optimus Prime worth double dipping on the figure? Do you need a classic Earth mode Soundwave in your collection, as opposed to the Cybertronian form he received in last year's Siege line? Tell us what you think in the discussion forums, and as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

Optimus in darker, toy accurate colors and Nemesis coming with a black trailer? Seems entirely coincidental if you ask me......
Re: NETFLIX Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Spoiler Pack #2 Revealed (2078175)
Posted by Wolfman Jake on August 28th, 2020 @ 11:35pm CDT
Soundwave is a given for me. I hope the final product really does have the cartoon accurate red visor. My one issue is that they didn't give Soundwave the red pinstripes on his wrists and shoulder cannon. They remembered those on the Siege version, and those parts haven't even been remolded on the Netflix version! Why drop them? I would have nixed the silver paint apps on the shoulders instead, as they were never screen accurate.

I'll be getting the Optimus Prime pack too, if only for the exclusive Battle Masters. Gotta Catch 'Em All! I'm not sure if I like the Netflix colors better than the regular Earthrise version of the figure, though. I do like that they FINALLY remembered to paint the yellow rectangle on the pelvis this time, and more of the lower legs are colored in blue instead of being left as gray plastic, but those truck windows look so drab without a little blue tint to them. The darker red and blue used also look more drab overall. It's going to come down to being able to have both the Earthrise and Netflix version in hand simultaneously to decide who gets to be the version of the figure I put in my display.

Welp, just preordered Nemesis. Personally I think it's a better value than the Takara exclusive. Now I'm hoping to actually find Soundwave in stores... or at least a decent price on eBay that isn't over $60.

These will supposedly be out in October, correct?

So does this Soundwave turn into a tape deck then? I'll probably get him but I won't need the tapes so I'll sell those. I'll be getting Optimus, but I don't care about the gold battle masters, so I'll probably just sell those as well.

I like the darker colors for Optimus, I almost want to slap a G2 symbol on his shoulder (not toy accurate, I don't care) and maybe give him Nemesis Prime's black trailer (also with a sticker, also not accurate). This way I can have a G2 Prime to fight G2 Megatron.

As for Soundwave, red or yellow I really don't care what color his eyes are, but it really annoys me that his chest is outlined yellow while the stripes on the sides are gold. It should all be gold like the CG! Even the Siege figures got it right, what were they thinking?

Here in the UK, Smyths Toys do stock the first wave of the Netflix range, including the Ultra Magnus spoiler box, so I don't see why they wouldn't stock the second wave too. That being said, last time I was in a Smyths there were a hefty number of Netflix Voyagers and Ultra Magnus boxes, so perhaps they're not selling very well and that could de-incentivise Smyths from ordeing more Netflix product?

Smyths I went into after the show aired had almost sold out of netflix bots and they were very well stocked before that. They are even look to be restocking omega supreme at some point so they must be doing okay on titans sales too.

As for the figures, it's going to be down to seeing primes colors in hand, the chest windows (which looked just as off on standard earthrise prime) might be better for having a thin clear blue plastic sheet carefully glued into each of them.

Soundwaves a pass, RED version wins non kibble hands down and the siege cassette bots are pretty bad anyways so no loss there.

Soundwave is an instant buy for me. He'll complete my Season 1cast for the Decepticons (assuming I find Skywarp and Thundercracker first!)

I couldn't stand the battle damaged window on the Siege version.

Now if only they would release blue Rumble without three other cassettes I don't want...
