This weekend saw the Gamer Event 2018 take place in Taiwan, and while so far the biggest news to come out of it was the surprise reveal of a trailer-less reissue of G1 Optimus Prime, that doesn't mean that there wasn't anything else there...Thanks to the people over at Transformers Never Die Facebook Group, we have some in-hand shots of Wave 1 Leader Class figures Ultra Magnus and Shockwave from the Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege line!

The pictures include a comparison shot of Siege Optimus with both the inner white robot of Ultra Magnus and with Ultra Magnus all armoured up. There is also a good look at Shockwave, included being handled as if he had his original alt mode.

We have mirrored the images below for your convenience.

I cant wait to get both of these! Though, I will say that Ultra Magnus's face looks off for some reason... :-?

Probably the angle and the lighting in most shots of him.

Want those two so hard.

So is this going to be another internet cartoon, or maybe a game? I'm not sure who would be the target market for Gen 0. Just thinking from a marketing point of view.

I don't care for that Shockwave, but I NEED that Ultra Magnus!
Like, really, THE RETURN OF SHITE OPTIMUS! That combine with his trailer! It's the first time ever since G1!

I wish they had done a size comparison with Shockwave and Megatron.

Better yet just release this d@mn figure at retail already and I'll do it myself!

Looks like we've got our confirmation that Ultra Magnus' armor has pre-posed ankles rather than ankle tilts.

Not a deal breaker, just less than ideal.

This is the perfect example of why I dislike the 'weathering' effect on these toys. It is extremely haphazardly applied. They took this pristine white figure and just flicked some silver on this thighs AND NOWHERE ELSE!

AGH :BOOM: Why?! I'm still gonna get him, but I hate when they're pre-posed ankle tilts! It just makes it more tedious to pose! Oh well, there are worse things in this line (Prowl's legs I'm looking at you)

If I'm honest, I kind of wish we'd get it, just to see how they handle the Scramble City style, with the addition of two bots making up the torso. Maybe down the line we might see release like with Greenlight

There are hinges attached to the side of the feet. What purpose would they serve other than ankle tilt?

After watching the pictures carefully, the angle of the feet seem to be unmoving no matter the pose. Plus what you see as "hinges" are really just the parts where the white panels tab solidly in. There is no "hinges" there.

Either that's an amusing typo where you slipped just south of the W key, or... /:)

Yes, let's remember that Hasbro's stock photographers can't be trusted to transform a Jumpstarter.
And I'm pretty sure it is in fact working ankle tilts. Because in some of those pictures, like this one:

The ankles look to be tilted more steeply.

It's not actually haphazard, there is a calculation to it. Siege may have more paint than we've been accustomed to for a while, but it's still rationed. So when apportioning Magnus' paint operations, they presumably decided it was more important to weather the armored mode since that's the part most people would care about. And since the thighs of the cab robot are the only part left exposed, they're what gets the weathering.

They do appear to be more angled there so there might be a bit more of a tilt inward, but I don't think they can sit flat. The feet appear to be attached to the tires so if the were flat they'd force the wheels off the ground in truck mode and he'd roll in bot mode, by angling them they keep the wheels up in bot mode. At least that's how it looks.

M... Maybe that's why it took so long to have a combining White Magnus! :lol:

While the US has been having fun with new generations line toy for a little while (as per usual), Siege has finally hit Canada all at once. Here is a quick rundown of where certain classes are found in various retailers:

Walmart: New Siege display (picture below) for Deluxes and Voyagers. These are apart from the Transformers section, in a central aisle.
Toysrus: While the Battle Masters were already reported, they now have the Micromasters, Deluxes and Voyager classes.
EB Games: They have the Micromaster two packs.

The prices are the same across the board with the Micromasters at $12.99, Deluxes at $29.99 and Voyagers at $39.99. These are all in Canadian dollars. Like in the US, the MSRP is made to match the movie figures price jump we saw last year with The Last Knight. Of course, there are always deals and right now at Toysrus there is a BOGO 50% off sale. So buying two Siege deluxes gives you 25% off each figure.

This info is brought to us by MeGrimlock78 on our boards and Dangard Ace from Cybertron.ca.
