Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Dominus Prime, has informed us that YouTube toy reviewer, Kremzeek Reviews, has uploaded a new video review of Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Voyager Class Optimus Prime with Battlemasters Enerax and Sheeldron!

This version of Optimus Prime is a redeco of Transformers Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime, minus his trailer with two yellow translucent redeco'ed Battlemasters (Siege Pteraxadon and Earthrise Soundbarrier). The yellow translucent redeco of Pteraxadon is a call back to the Energon axe he used in his fight against Megatron atop the Sherman Dam in the 2nd part of More Than Meets The Eye from the original Generation 1 cartoon.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of the review? Are you getting this Optimus for your shelves? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

This is going to be perfect for me. I passed on the previous version because I didn't want a trailer, and I like the paint apps better on this one as well, except for the windshield. The battle masters I can take or leave, but I believe I already made a deal with someone for them. :-?

My thoughts almost exactly. I don't mind the color of the windshield, I just wish the back of the lower legs were blue.
Now, I don't know that I'll get this version, but I'd probably go for it if it were on a sale for $35-ish.

Once they clear Megatron and Hotlink that is ;)

Trailer or Battle Masters. What a choice... :-?

Well, the vanilla trailer is garbage. Plain, odd looking, and missing key components. However, once upgraded with Repros and Shapeways its awesome. But of course the added costs are ludicrous.

So the Battlemasters may be the cheapest and simplest option overall.

Love the G2 style head with the bright blue mouth plate and red eyes.

Definitely much better than I was expecting.

That's why I really dig the United version. It's just too bad they didn't make his eyes a different color but it's still pretty cool...'nuff said! :VEHI:

I choose both. To obtain only the Battle Masters if said partner gets them first, or to sell off my extra Optimus likewise if I happen to find it first.

What are the two smaller Soundwaves and Laserbeaks? They're not the G1, Titanium, or Music Label molds.

I'm guessing newage or or mech planet hotsoldiers on the smaller soundwaves.



I'm guessing with the arm kibble, Netflix soundwave can turn into some kind of lump like the Siege version :P

After watching some earlier reviews on Netflix Soundwave, I can guess at why they kept the kibble under the forearms from the Siege version of the mold. In tape deck mode, those pieces snap the robot arms securely together in the back and fill in a gap in the back that would otherwise be open and more obvious without the kibble there. In other words, it increases stability of the alt mode AND fills in some negative space as well. They could have gone to the trouble of resculpting the pieces to look less obviously like the leftover landing skids from the "space barge" of the Siege mold, but why bother when they're mostly out of the way in both modes.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, First Gen and Dominus Prime, have let us know that a user by the name of Shentu Toybox, over on the Chinese social media site Weibo, has photos of the forthcoming Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Voyager Class Soundwave with Ravage and Lazerbeak!

Here is a selection of the photos offered, follow the link to see more!

This Voyager Class Soundwave is a retool of Siege Voyager Class Soundwave, allowing him to resume his Tape Deck alt mode from the Generation 1 toyline/cartoon series. It's been pointed out by fellow Seibertron user, Wolfman Jake that the vestigal landing gear from the Siege alt mode on the arms now serve a new purpose by filling out the back of the new alt mode and allow the arms to snap in securely.

Ravage and Lazerbeak have also been slightly retooled and redeco'ed to better resemble their earth mode (most evident is Lazerbeaks head).

What do you think of these images? Will you be picking up this version of the iconic Decepticon? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I can only hope to find this and Bumblebee if things go smoothly in terms of finding them in-person. I don't want to face the same fate that happened with Beewun Prime and Siege Skywarp.

On secon thought, that's a Soundwave I can live without. Especially with the horrible back in tapedeck mode. Having the G1, the MP, and the Siege, that Netflix ER don't bring anything new.

I also have the G1, MP and Siege, and I will be getting this and selling the Siege version. The back of this one in tape deck mode doesn't bother me, as he'll always be facing forward on the shelf no matter which mode he's in. I was never really over for the Siege version, but it was better than nothing. And this one is better than the Siege one so it'll be picked up if I see it in store.

"Better" in the sense that if you want the most "G1" Generations Soundwave ever. On that perspective, it is the best, no doubt.


But for me, the Siege is "better" because he have his G1 bot mode while having a very original spaceship mode. That make him stand out. And if I want a tapedeck mode, I can always buy that upgrade kit. It's unfortunately quite expensive though.

I will not buy online with shipping and extra fees. But if I find that Netflix Soundwave live in store, it will be very hard to not impulse buy him.

The landing gear on the forearms still bugs me, especially when that plastic could've been used for panels to avoid hollow forearms.
I think the figure overall looks incredibly good...
I don't think this is the best we'll get for a G1 styled figure, but then I keep questioning, how long will it be before we get a non-gimmick, G1 Soundwave that's better than this?
And I'm so happy with my MP version, I don't know if I'm going to wait around much more for the "next better version". As I've said before, it's getting to that point for some of these other characters as well.

If you're willing, humor me and share your opinions on how soon we'll get better versions of some of these G1 characters. Oh, and I mean versions that are gimmick-free with the goal of G1, cartoon accurate appearances.
