With our gallery of Megatron yesterday, you could guess Optimus was right around the corner. Clicking on any image below will bring you to the full gallery of War for Cybertron: SIEGE Voyager Class Optimus Prime. This is only the second time we ever had a voyager class Optimus Prime representing his G1 self that had his own unique mold. With the previous one being Classics Optimus from twelve years ago, an update was in order and this toy happens to be the same size as that toy but far more accurate to the G1 Optimus robot mode we are familiar with, with better articulation, more details and more playability options. You will find images of the hover truck option, for instance, along with the different weaponry options.

This toy is scheduled for a release this month, to be sold as part of the 2018 holiday season. However, since it has yet to be spotted at a big box retailer, the final shelf price is still unknown.

Between TRU closing, Hasbro being forced to release a bunch of employees, Leader class shrinking, and a lot of Walmarts not even carrying Leaders I'm not sure if we'll see another Titan after Scorponok assuming we get him at all. Hasbro seems to be having increasing trouble getting large Transformers into US retail and they aren't worth the risks.

Aside from Toys R Us, when were any Titan Class figures found at retail in the US?

Do you count specialty stores like Think Geek? And do you count Costco? There were titans at both those locations. I am unaware if Predaking was found at those.

Anyways, Enerje, while i see where you are coming from all the evidence presented is circumstantial. We can theorise, but I see no solid proof that Hasbro is abandoning Titans . I remember us bign concerned last year that there would be nothing after Predaking, but he is still being sold at the largest retailers in the US and Hasbro was happy to present us with Omega Supreme. It honestly seems like business as usual. Sure the channels of purchasing are changing but that is for retail as a whole and it doesnt mean there are less sales.

I think I count Think Geek, they're just not a big enough chain for me to even consider. I don't even think there are any around where I live, I've never been to one. Metroplex is the only one who showed up at Costco, which I never saw at the Costcos around me. They were at clearance prices so I'm not even sure if it was an actual regular Costco stocked item or they just bought palettes at discounted prices and blew them out. Either way, the point was that Walmart, Target and other non-Toys R Us big box stores didn't carry Titan Class figures in the first place.

I keep forgetting that they're supposed to have "Cybertronian" alt-molds. Because really, only Starscream and Shockwave look the part. Not that I mind! :))

That "hover" mode for Prime is funny.

:shock:

So Ultra Magnus' symbol is just slightly more elaborate in the bottom corner than the regular Deluxe symbol so it really does appear that they are for rank rather than size class.
Symbol 8.JPG


Meanwhile Shockwave's is entirely unique (it might have V in the bottom still, hard to tell), resembling an atom since he's a scientist. The Decepticons seem to have a lot more variation in their symbols than the Autobots do.
Symbol 9.JPG


Also, a better look at Cog's tells us that it really is a combination of the Deluxe and Battle Master symbols. Still no clear shot of the Micro Master symbols, but they do appear to be the same as the Battle Masters.
Symbol 7.JPG


So here's the symbols we know along with possible/theoretical ranks. Curious if Leader class Optimus will have the same symbol as the Voyager or if they'll change up the top portion.

Autobot Leader
Image

Autobot Commander
Image

Autobot Soldier
Image

Autobot Weaponizer
Image

Autobot Battle Master/Micro Master(?)
Image

Decepticon Leader
Image

Decepticon Scientist
Image

Decepticon Duocon
Image

Decepticon Battle Master/Micro Master(?)
Image

There's still a lot we haven't seen yet.

The more I see of ultra Magnus, the less I want him. He just keeps looming clunkier and bulkier than before. I'm sticking with my CW Magnus

If it were business as usual then Hasbro wouldn't be laying off 10% of their work force (estimated between 500 and 600 employees) as a direct result of TRU closing in the US right before their busiest time of the year. For us it was just a matter of going somewhere else to buy the same things, but for Hasbro it's been a massive blow. Don't forget, all those Trypticons that were found at Ollie's for cheap came directly from Hasbro when TRU canceled their orders, coupled with all the other Hasbro stock found there. That's a huge hit for them to absorb, it isn't like when Amazon sells them for cheap at Christmas after Hasbro already got their money. Seeing as how you can still get super cheap Trypticons online it's easy to guess that Hasbro will have to greatly pull back the production numbers on Omega Supreme if they haven't already started doing so with Predaking. It wouldn't take much for the numbers to become unprofitable and Titans no longer being a thing in 2020.

Let's face it, Hasbro relies on the gullibility of retailers to keep buying these big ticket items in larger quantities than they can ever hope to possibly sell, and they've now lost the most gullible of all.

Why are the Battle Master's weapons detachable?

And why do they have 3 mm pegs/handles? As far as I can see there are no figures with 3 mm ports in this line.

My guess, its either a stress joint desingied to give rathwr than break. But Blowpipe d9es have ports behind his wrists, so maybe he can mount the gun?

Consider the Battle Masters a continuation of the Prime Master Decoy Suits, which had the same features and are of the same size. The 3mm ports are leftover standard from DotM and Prime's Cyberverse line.

We had newsed them as they came in but now we will list all the toys we know that are within the Siege line. This might not mean that this is the entirety for all classes, but it is all the listings out now for this one year line. The deluxe and voyagers output at least seems complete, as far as mainline toys go. Make of it what you will. The big entry here that people may have missed is a leader sized Optimus Prime that is slated for later in 2019.

You will notice that certain expected redecos are not listed, such as Skywarp, and the other Datsuns (Bluestreak and Smokescreen). Skywarp's current absence is reinforced by him not being present on the recent promotional material for the Decepticon releases. These may of course end up as exclusives, just like Ratchet is, or released in later lines within the War for Cybertron trilogy.

Deluxes:
E3520 Sideswipe
E3535 Skytread/flywheels

E4738 Sixgun

I just realized that the cassette-bot on Soundwave's arm there is blue. :SG-CONS:

How is it logical that Shockwave can have 4 arms and still only 1 hand? :lol:
