Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, blackeyedprime and LinaNui, has shared the news with us that YouTube toy reviewer, TonTon Reviews has uploaded new video reviews for the forthcoming Transformers Netflix War for Cybertron Deluxe Class toys, Bumblebee and Elita 1! Bumblebee is a retool of the previously released Deluxe Class Cliffjumper that was released for Earthrise wave 1. Elita 1 is a retool of Transformers Earthrise Wave 2 Deluxe Class Arcee. Neither features the extensive battle damage seen on recent Netflix Siege figures as all current evidence points to both of these getting a release only in the Walmart exclusive Netflix subline. This is the same situation as Voyager Earth Mode Soundwave.

We've embedded the reviews below for your convenience.

Bumblebee



Elita 1



What do you think of these? Will you be replacing your current Bee or Elita 1 with these? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

I'm going to try and get that Bee... That's the best version so far imo.

Kinda sucks that even the Netflix show bee has the spare wheel on his back but not the figure. Just finished the show and amazed at scrap faces screen time...

Impactor seems like another figure that could have been replaced if they had used the already existing decepticon impactor figures head/paint scheme in the show.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, Tuned Agent and Thundertron, has let us know that fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime, has uploaded a new video review, this time, it's Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Deluxe Class Impactors turn in front of the camera!

Impactor is part of the second wave of Deluxes for the Netflix War for Cybertron figures, making this the third use of the Impactor mold. He doesn't use the IDW head sculpt he has in the Amazon exclusive three pack.

Has Autobot symbol, so... nope. I'll stick with my Decepticon version :-D

The color difference between his upper half and his lower half bothers me.

Doesn't bother me as much now as when we first saw it. There's just enough of that canned peas green in his upper half and yellow in his legs to like the balance. I almost wish they didn't paint his hands.

Shame they gave him an Autobot symbol, that sure isn't cartoon accurate.

Having N Chromia, I finally tried the mold.
I am angry and happy at the same time. Happy because she look DAMN good compared to the regular version. I can see why the combiner gimmick was removed. The bot and vehicle modes are much sleeker. Plus the transformation have some unexpected twists like the rotating wheel kibbles on her legs.

I'm mostly angry about two specific things. What's up with her obsession at removing her panties and going commando at any times randomly? This is annoying. STAY DECENT, GIRL! Second, her gun. It didn't had to separate in multiple tidbits that barely hold together.

Overall, I'm still glad I hav her. Too bad they never made an Arcee out of that mold.

I'm just not that excited about these figures. Already have Wheeljack and just need Bee.
Does anyone know if Elitas backpack is removable? Reminds me of a homeless cybertronian.
The impactor paint job is nice, I may just have to grab a 2nd figure.
Please fill me in on this line but other than the Netflix line, do these figures have better paint apps? Thanks and take care my fellow cybertronians

As removable as Arcee's, since they're the same mold.

Most of these are cool. Red Alert and Wheeljack are very disappointing. Red loses his red biceps from the renders (again) and his limbs are this weird cream color that clashes with the white paint like nobody's business. Wheeljack loses the cool weathering effects on his car mode paint apps and instead just gets black stuff spattered on him.

Overall, I felt like that battle damage paint on the first series was pretty good, but the ones that have it on this second series is pretty blah.

I finally tried the Siege Mirage mold. I would have hated the regular version, but with the Netflix colors it work very well as a Cybertronian vehicle. I was taken aback by the faux-chest, but otherwise it's a pretty solid mold. His colors fit very well with Hotlink.

The miscolored whites didnt work on the regular siege version either, only Selects Artic Megatron pulls it off in a good way (it makes him look cheap but also even more G2ish).


I might consider elita 1 and detaching the shell but only bumblebee for sure, Optimus depending on final figures coloring and maybe the mystery leader. Soundwaves nice but I just need to spend money on another one.

This just odd, because in Earthrise we are getting Arcee (which is clearly not an earth vehicle). Just like we got a couple figures in Siege that looked pretty much like standard earth vehicles rather than Cybertronian. I just wonder if not for the Netflix show if BB and Elita-1 would have been regular Earthrise or Siege releases...??

To be fair, you just might not have gotten Elita-1. Bee probably an Earthrise release
