Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Ham-Man, has dropped us a line to let us know that they've done a brand new video review of the forthcoming Battlemaster Slitherfang from the Transformers War for Cybertron: Earthrise line! Slitherfang is a bit unique in the fact that he doesn't have a traditional robot mode, instead going from his alt mode (normally a shield for larger figures, but if you combine multiple Slitherfangs, you can make ramps out of them like Soundbarrier) to a robot snake mold! Joining a very small list of Transformers that turn into snakes in some regard. He's also not listed as either Autobot or Decepticon but instead as a Quintesson

Slitherfang is part of the second wave of Battlemasters, along with a re-release of Siege Rung (his deco is unchanged).

We have embedded the review for your viewing pleasure.



Will you be stocking up on Slitherfang to grow your transformers city? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I heard that as well, hopefully if those sets become reality they won’t be like Siege Skywarp and friends (who I had before I got the new one) and be crazy ridiculous on the aftermarket. I’m kinda tired of big name characters being exclusives, selling out quick, and being expensive later in the future. I’m no completionist but I want to get as much of the modernized 84/85 cast as possible. I wasn’t even thought of when it was a thing so this is kinda my way of living that experience out.

I think it's supposed to create a kind of variety on the shelves instead of the same names appearing (though some same names are allowed...) but exclusives bring with them their own problems, it's very hard to balance.

Personally, I'd rather the 'big names' be exclusives than not get them at all.

I hope I can get three of him, I loved soundbarrier so much I got two more since he was shelfwarming a bit :shock: the ramp play pattern is pretty fun to set up little bases among the shelf of bots, if I had less self control I'd buy more multiples to make a wheel o' bots :michaelbay:

From the looks of it, Airwaves shares his upper thighs, elbows, and chest peg with Brunt.

Only his hip joints and the chest peg! His thighs are very similar but are different. I assume his thighs are treads for a Hothouse retool

Looks BBTS 2 days ago -Oh they only have Slitherfang and Rung together, oh well. "Checks today" appropriately they did have them seperated at some point in the last 48 hours and Slitherfang sold out...Of course. Well It was a pain in the behind to find Sounbarrier, hopefully I can find Slitherfang at a Target without having to pay scalper prices online.

Really? Soundbarrier is literally the only Battlemaster I see... multiple pegs of nothing but him.

They don't get Battlemasters at all in Maryland, anymore.

I had to beg a Target employee to dig a Soundbarrier out of the back a few months ago, only saw it one other time. Siege BMs still clogging pegs in northern CA stores. Never saw Rung either. I guess I should have waited so I could pre-order Rung & Slitherfang both now. But I was able to get a TT Rung at a fairly reasonable price compared to others.

With Doublecrosser being the only other new BM, I wonder if his Wavemate would be Slitherfang?

I'm pretty sure they're the same clear plastic as his windows. So dark, but not quite black.

I recently made the decision to get out of collecting, so my current pre-orders are the last ones, but today this giant arrived! Expect images soon!
