Youtube reviewer Ome9asupreme got his hands on the Siege of Cybertron boxset and has done reviews for Metalhawk, Decepticon Pounce, Thunderwing Titan Master, Magnus Prime and Tidalwave. This boxset is a BBTS exclusive in the US, where it is currently sold, and a Toysrus exclusive in Hong Kong, where it has already hit stores.

Enjoy!

And wow, Metalhawk looks cool. I prefer his Pretender incarnation, but he looks great in Siege. I want Pounce the most, though.

For me this is actually good news since I had to use my money and I wouldn't be able to pay for it if it was at the end of July.

I get money at the beginning of August so I'll be able to get him then.

It's been saying early August for me for a while on BBTS, and Trypty's (wrong thread I know but still TR) has no estimate at all.

His face may be a bit too round for the blockyness of the body. I don't have clobber so can't check. But I'm thinking a faceplate like that, give him an armoured soldier type look.

I really like that Metalhawk. To be perfectly honest I like everything in this set aside from Thunderwing and Magnus -- anyone getting this set just for not-Ginrai and wants to give away Tidal Wave, Pounce or Metalhawk? :D

Something's occurred to me regarding the Tidal Wave figure and its colours, actually. Between the overall design, pleasant voyager size and slick purple colourscheme (not to mention Tidal Wave's Japanese name), with a new faceplate and gun hand, he'd make a pretty neat Shockwave!

Funny, ever since I found out Tidal Wave was called Shockwave in Japan I've had a headcanon that Tidal Wave was originally a giant transtector for Shockwave to increase his power and, uh, size in battle (so Shockwave himself gains a third mode in the form of a massive head)...but for some reason whilst he's connected to the body he reverts to a rather stupid berserk state only capable of growling "Shoooooockwaaaaaave". As such, he builds/reformats a new head/control unit for the Tidal Wave body, who whilst not hugely bright even when not connected to the body, is actually stable and controllable, and generally pretty chummy.

This probably originated from playing with my Energon Tidal Wave and Shockwave/blast, who in my childhood games with my TFs were best buddies, and all around nice guys. Tidal Wave for some reason was the exact opposite of his actual self (eloquent, polite and wise) whilst Shockwave was a friendly doddering old professor type character.

I was a weird kid.

I just want Magnus Prime (to finally have my PM Prime update) and the Thunderwing head (to go on a Nitro Zeus body probably). Everything else in that box is plastic junk to me.

This is a great point and I am using it as a jumping off point for something directed to all my friends here.

Why dont we talk about the toys we have and love instead of what we wish would happen or what we are pissed hasnt happened? Its like this thread has all the anticipation, the reviews but not what follows. Aside from BodRock's shots of Skyshadow, I dont see as much of people having fun with their toys. Or saying which they love, or trying different things with their heads and compatibility across the line. has anyone done some fun stuff with all this added playability?

Which toys do you like best in the line? Is there a triple changer voyager that is truly better than the rest?


TR Megatron is still by far my fave Titans figure and has spent the majority of the time since I got him in December proudly standing on my desk in robot, jet or tank modes. He's been probably the Transformer I've transformed most in years though Sqweeks and TLK Megatron have had a lot of play too despite having them them for shorter length of time.

I still don't know why my TR Megatron's stickers are better than everyone elses. The TFWiki even stating "The G1 toy-accurate 'scrollwork' details on his chest and all Decepticon insignias are chrome-backed, factory-applied, low-quality stickers which are notoriously prone to peeling off at the slightest disturbance" when none have even begun to peel off despite much play and handling. I was even trying to peel one of the scrolly bits the other day cos I've never actually been fond of that pattern on him and couldn't do it.

But again on that wiki it says about Sqweeks and Berserker: "Similar to Berserker's arm kibble, Sqweek's vehicle mode headlight piece does not have any glue holding it in place and tends to pop out during transformation. ". My Berserker's kibble is not glued no, but it certainly doesn't pop off easily and Sqweeks' headlight piece didn't come off even when I tried to exert a bit of force in doing so. Is there a variable quality control depending on where you are in the world or what batch of figures you get?

Anyways yeah I still love TR Megatron. Um let's go through the ones I've owned.

TR Legends Bumblebee - kinda crappy. Didn't like how the driver's bit opened up at all
TR Deluxe Hardhead - bought cos i had the original G1 toy but this one's boring with a much uglier tank mode
TR Deluxe Highbrow - boring
TR Deluxe Chromedome - bought same time as Highbrow, also boring so sold both within the fortnight
TR Deluxe Hot Rod - Nice figure but shoulder joints were too high so I modded them, didn't like the bit that folds in from the front of the car so I leave that out fo the transformation even tempted to just glue it. Painted to be my Marvel Hot Rod.
TR Deluxe Triggerhappy - Bought with Hot Rod as a buy one get one half price deal. I had no real interest in it though and sold it on without even opening the package. Looking at pics online and such I really couldn't care less.
TR Deluxe Wirewolf - Robot is kinda dull, wolf mode just looks goofy. I only bought it to paint up into a modern Carnivac toy but I got a bit fed up with the mold's issues and left it in the customs WIP pile.
TR Voyager Gavatron - Average robot mode with stupid flip up mask gimmick that just doesn't look good at all. Boring alt-modes. I modded my figure and painted it up in the G1 toy/comic greys but got a bit fed up with the head stuff and left it in the customs WIP pile like Wirewolf.
TR Voyager Megatron - Love it. Already said so. My G1 Megatron representation of my collection.
TR Voyager Optimus Prime - It's... okay. Plane mode is junk. Truck is passable. Robot mode is alright but not best. I still prefer my 2006 Classics Optimus Prime.
Takara Legends Scourge - Nice but I got bored with it and sold it a few months later. The antenna kept sliding down into the head from even just a slight breeze.
Takara Legends Blurr - Lovely figure with striking blues. Same QC issue as Scourge with the antenna that I tried to fix only to get interrupted and make a botch job of it. Also I really don't like the back of the robot mode at all whether with the shield on or not. Also pissed off he didn't have his Targetmaster ready yet like Legends Hot Rod and Kup do and I'd have to import a figure I dislike just to get it.

Figures I would still like though:
Possible Legends Kup and Hot Rod. Had to cancel my pre-order but they still tempt me.
Alpha Trion (at the £10.99 Kapow price if just to paint in silvers and use as a TLK Knight/King character)
Magnus Prime cos I still own the original G1 Powermaster Prime and felt Hasbro's attempt to update it was sorely lacking but Takara's Ginrai was nice but I want this one.

Hm looking at that it looks like I don't feel I've really got much value for money from this line at all. Still better than Combiner Wars though.


Jeez I typed a lot. I gotta go to the blood donation venue now so catch ya later! :D

I've had fine experiences with Megatron's stickers too -- the only one that's ended up coming off was the Decepticon logo on his nosecone. The rest are... alright, though could certainly be better.

My Megatron has ok stickers too. Wings are starting to peel a bit. Blitzwing's stickers are awful though. HIs wing stickers are peeling badly. Gonna have to drop some dough on reprolabels for the two of them eventually.

Suppose I'll also give my list of TR figures I've got and my experiences with 'em :p

Clobber: Wonderful little figure. Very cute, very clever and gives a lovely generic head to plonk on anyone.

Buzzsaw: Unpopular opinion but he's great. The bird and cassette modes are pulled off very well and I just adore that headsculpt -- and I really love compacting the parts of the bird into a little box shape. Honestly don't think there's much wrong with him, I like him very much so.
Rewind: Marvellous piece of engineering. Despite a few flaws like the arms being too chunky in proportion to the rest of the body; Rewind manages to be a stand-out Legends-class figure, a decent representation of the MTMTE character and a surprisingly successful triple changer.
Bumblebee: Fiddly transformation and it's a bit annoying how the yellows sometimes don't match up depending on your light source, but he's still a neat little dude and I'm happy to have him as my Bumblebee representation.

Chromedome: A bit simple and repetitive especially after CW's Dead End hordes, but he still pulls off a few neat tricks and it turns out this engineering works better as a Headmaster anyway. Nothing terribly wrong, just unfortunately a bit basic.
Wolfwire: Very impressive transformation with both modes being great to look at and very well articulated. Both could be better in those areas but I'm still very happy with the figure.
Hot Rod: Once again, a tad basic; but I'm much more impressed with the transformation than Chromedome and the streamlining and re-invention of Hot Rod's classic transformation make for some great modes -- in particular, a cybertronian car I can't help but fall in love with. And I think he has my favourite cockpit of the lot!

Megatron: Incredible. Just... incredible. A few minor flaws mainly relating to QC, but the design of this guy is phenomenal and I think the best tank/jet/robot triple changer yet; managing to look impressive and function extremely well in all three modes. A great Megatron, a great triple-changer, a great Headmaster, and just a damn good toy.




All in all, I've been very impressed with this line. If I had to choose a loser I guess I'd choose Bumblebee, but I still love him to pieces. Thanks to Kapow's sales it's looking like I'll pick up Sentinel Prime today along with Ptero -- I'll be sure to give my thoughts on them in due time :)

With wave 6 probably being revealed fully tonight, this could be our last chance at predictions. So here is what I think we will see:

Titan Master: Toraiser, Optimus Primal, Arcee
Legends: Beachcomber
Deluxes: Slugslinger, Crosshairs, Carnivac, Blood
Voyagers: Snapdragon and Apeface
Leader: Deathsaurus

I 100% agree. Amazing cockpit and I love how they can give us a Hot Rod with a good looking vehicle that looks the part while also giving us a sleek robot and is totally uncumbersome to transform.

Its so cool to see all these write ups. I love this line and I am glad to see so many are enjoying their toys. Carnivius_Prime, my Megatron`s chest stickers are also good though I think the edges of the red stickers on the jet were slightly peeling last time I checked mine. And ditto for Sqweeks, nothing pops off. My only isue with him is how he can't hold that massive gun well. It always droops from the poorly done hole in his hand.

I think my favourite so far is Skyshadow along with Kup. Though I do enjoy all these toys a lot.

Totally forgot to mention that Hot Rod's simplicity in transformation helps it a lot. My favourite thing in transformations is probably when they just use a couple simple tricks to accomplish a lot more than you'd expect and a very different silhouette -- the wheels going behind the legs for instance is great in this regard :D

I generally agree with your predictions considering the Titan Master leak a month or so back as well as the rumours flying around, aside from the Deluxes. I get the feeling we'll be getting all 3 1987 Autobot Targetmasters to complement the 3 1987 Decepticon Targetmasters we got this line. Also in particular, I doubt we'd get a Wolfwire repaint as Carnivac if they felt confident enough in re-releasing Wolfwire in the previous wave.

If i remember Galvatron was gonna be the last one to be Reissued on the last wave, not sure if its true.
