Thanks to a tip off from fellow Seibertron user, Cyberpath, we bring you pictures of grey prototypes for some of the forthcoming Siege figures (Soundwave, Chromia, Prowl, Autobot Rescue Patrol and Pteraxadon). These are, of course just the grey unpainted prototypes of the figures but do show off all the wonderful molded detail that has been lovingly added to them. These photographs were found on the Snakas Blog.

We have mirrored the images below for your convenience.

Soundwave's mold looks really good without the battle damage. I'm hoping that they do what they did with Magnus and tone the battle damage way back for Soundwave cause that robot mode and also "space-barge" mode look great imo. And if they don't, I wouldn't be surprised if they release that mold in Studio Series with Ravage and call it "Cybertronian Soundwave" from the Bumblebee movie, cause that actually looks fairly close to that version of the character as well

I NEED that Soundwave in my collection :x Laserbeak is awesome and Ravage is... fine. But I will probably change him out for my Universe Ravage from Hound. Ptery guy looks cool and so does Prowl. Chromia is cool too.

Soundwave is delightful and will be mine. Chromia, eh, she looks alright but I'd rather have one of the combining versions of that transformation scheme. Prowl looks gorgeous but the shins being made from clear plastic makes me nervous.

I still really don't like that Soundwave at all even here in just grey. Never been fond of his design in general (too boxy for me) but I don't think all that detailing works for him. And yes that alt-mode is still junk

Soundwave is a buy on site! I do wish that G1 cassettes could fit in him but I doubt it though. I'm not really feeling those Spy Patrol, Laserbeak is okay but Ravage looks terrible. The MP cassettes will still remain my defaults regardless.

Still not a fan of Prowl in either mode. Rescue Patrol is cool and So is Chromia.

Hope those forearms are gonna be red.

We have seen painted samples before, where they were red.
Ok. I thought so. They look like prototype grey in those shots, so hopefully that's just a factory sample.

I'm hesitant to say that's the case just because a bunch of figures on display had these "Deco Sample (Not Final)" stickers which I suspect they would have stuck on Ironhide if he wasn't finished.

And the fact that the gray arms are on both the bot and the vehicle and both are in molded colors and factory painted I'm just not so sure these are samples. Hopefully they're simply supposed to be painted red instead of molded and they yanked these out of the factory before it could be done. I also wish the light gray on the shoulders and wheels were darker, but who knows.

And man, Soundwave is armed to the teeth. Shoulder canon, rifle, microphone(?) gun and all three combining into one long gun thing (probably looks better treated like a shoulder mounted bazooka or something) plus a pair of guns that can flip out from under his forearms. Pretty good for a communications officer.

Soundwave really could have used slide out hands like the G1 toy rather than the hollows :( but probably picking him and his cassettes up All the others not for me. might wait to see the studio series Bumblebee movie version (tho i'm pretty sure a SS or bumblbee movie toy will have a tape deck mode tho I like the Siege one for having a cybertronian mode)

Oooh, Prowl is lookin fine. So sleek compared to the rest of the overly wrinkly-looking Siege line so far.

The MP cassettes will still remain my defaults regardless.

But arent those obscenely huge for a voyager soundwave?

Lord knows Ravage ain’t too huge.

And what is the deal with trying to do multiple quotes from the same post? I can’t get it to work right.

Oh man, that backpack on Chromia was really minimized after removing the combiner peg... :roll:

Soundwave looks awesome. It's going to take me a while to get used to the cassetteybois, though.

Has there been any confirmation that Bumblebee's Cybertronians will come to the movie lines including Studio Series? It doesn't seem like a good fit, especially with all of the G1 characters in the other lines. If you want Cybertron Soundwave, I think Siege will be your best bet.

I'm also guessing that the Cybertron sequence is just a couple minutes in the movie, but that's even more off-topic.

I plan to use TR Rumble and Frenzy with Soundwave since I think they'll still scale better than Micromasters would, but I'm eager to replace Ravage and Lazerbeak with their Siege counterparts.

Just received my first siege figures yesterday... sideswipe and hound and they're solid, fun toys. The worn paint marks battle damage isn't too jarring,

They have a certain heft and an improvement on the classics releases (I didn't bother with the Combiner wars iterations). For their time the classics were pretty awesome but a lot of the transformations were too fiddly something the seems to have improved since CW...

re these prototypes, looking forward to them.. TR sound wave was a good figure but totally out of place scale wise. Also like the fact he has a g1 inspired hand gun. His alt mode is a bit weird but it kinda fits in with deceptions being flyers...

Not quite understanding chromia's disappearing back pack in the pix... seems like it's removed completely in some shots.

Prowl reminds me of prime's smokescreen

Hope they release a larger variety of micromasters.

The best thing that could've been done was have a combiner peg that could attach or detach from the figure.

The rescue patrol seems to be a retool of the combat patrol

Looking at Soundwave's articulation and transformation joints I think I can safely say... Cassette player mode it completely do-able. Maybe even intended

This site seems to like to mess with that, doing stuff like randomly delete the bracket from one of the tags or inject an extra closing tag. In this case it seems to be outright ignoring an opener tag and possibly double-counting a closer.

MP Ratbat's the same size as his original toy

I doubt it but I really, really hope the new cassettes are compatible with the MP/G1 cassettes. I do love me some cross compatibility.

Except a combiner peg won't do you any good if there is no 5mm port to attach a hand or foot. That was the other thing removed when Siege Chromia was designed.
