After the cool reveal of the Wave 1 Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise figures earlier today, we have some brand new stock images to show you of all the revealed figures!

The Battlemaster class includes Soundbarrier, a new character who transforms into a shield. They will be packaged with a rerelease of the Siege Battlemaster Smashdown.

The Micromaster classes include the Hot Rod Patrol and the Military Patrol, consisting of Daddy-O, Trip-Up, Bombshock, and Growl, respectively.

The deluxe assortment consists of Hoist, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, and Ironworks. The former 3 are based on their original cartoon appearances while the 4th is a new robot based on the Micromaster Ironworks base.

The voyagers consist of new mold Earth mode Starscream and Grapple, who show some similarities to the Classics seeker mold and the Masterpiece Grapple figures.

And the Leader consists of Optimus Prime complete with his trailer that functions as a repair bay.

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Now that I've had a few hours to absorb whats going on, I have several thoughts. I had speculated a while ago about Hasbro re-releasing Smashdown. Glad they are doing it for all those who didn't get one he first time. Also the re-release of older figures serves twofold. So that fans get a second chance to pick up figures maybe they passed on the first time, and gives Hasbro *Breathing Room* I guess to stretch out their releases. They don't always have to have two leaders at the start now etc... We've seen it within the same line, its just been a really long time since we've seen them cross lines, but its not unprecedented. Tidal Wave and Overload got re releases in Energon from Armada, but they also got new paint jobs. I wonder if any changes will be made to Astrotrain or Smashdown besides packaging?

Not thrilled at Cliffjumper being a deluxe, but oh well. I know fans have waited long enough, I wouldn't have gotten it anyone. he's not for me, he's for others ;)

Also it seems Omega Supreme will serve as the Bridge (both literally and figuratively) between older and newer Base/Station figures. I haven't purchased any leaders in the last two lines, but I may start again, since the BM's (which I already get) will have connectors, and the Leaders will as well. Kind of glad the deluxes don't, (other than weaponizes) that would be tough.

Oddly enough, I didn't get any of the Optimus' toys from PotP or Siege, so getting one in ER, that happens to fit my collecting aesthetic, and hearkens back to the original is kind of cool.

Is it me or does Cliffjumper sorta look like that 3P MP scaled Toro figure?

With the explanation of why Primes hands are gray I can live with that. Not like someone isn’t going to just make an upgrade kit for them anyway. We already have the perfect Roller, the targetmaster one that came with the legends class TT Prime.

I’m not totally sold on Hoist, but I do want to be able to display him with my Constructicons for some The Master Builders recreations. On that note, Grapple is very nice. I was never much a fan of the older CHUG figure.

That Starscream is pretty sharp, I have some hardcore regrets of getting the SIEGE figure now.

No sure about ol’ CJ, although I do like that he’ll hopefully be unique from Bumblebee.

I’ll be sticking with my Generations Wheeljack though. This isn’t different enough for me to double-dip.

I’m definitely intrigued by Ironworks or whatever his name is. New blood oil is always good.

Kinda loving all these guys. I do find it somewhat weird that this is a three year storyline. Is part 3 going to be "back to Cybertron" since this is the War For Cybertron series?

Anyway, the hits keep coming. I guess I gotta buy two Optimus Primes, because that one is perfect for my son. I do like the Siege Laser Rifle (Ion Blaster my ###) better, but I guess I can live with it.

Don't know where I stand on Starscream, but we'll see what develops.

Hoist: I had hopes, but then, this happened. That robot mode does not look good at all. He just, no.


I agree it doesn't. But thats cause that G1 design never looked good. I remember talking to Cobotron about this and he said of all the autobot diaclone designs, that was easily the worst. I agree.

Wheeljack: that right there is the MP shrunk down. kinda really lame.


How is that lame, sounds pretty awesome to me. The MP is an excellent toy and now I have something like that for a smaller scale.

Grapple: also the MP scaled down

Also sounds good, especially since I found the MP rather simple in every other aspect outside the ladder magic. So it will feel better at this lower scale.

without crane magic and with some hollow parts

Sounds less good now, but I think thats forgiveable.

Prime: a not very well colored version of MP-10. Also lame.


I think everyone has issues with the colours, no argument there but I think he's even worse than a shrunk down MP-10. Did you see the back of the cab? MP10 at least looks really good in cab mode.

What the hell were they thinking? We went from wonderful detail to flat boxes once again! NO! How could you regress so badly?


I can totally answer that, it's because of all the whining. The lamenting of the greebling was endless and if I was Warden I would simply think there is no reason to keep doing all the details if no one will appreciate it. No one who liked it was overly vocal, I can only recall people hating that (same with the battle damage).

The first images of these guys, especially Cliffjumper, made me weary, but now I'm sold.

I just realized Zarak and Cerebros have similar connection parts for head mode. Does that mean that potentially we can swap Fort Max and Scorponok's heads?

I’ll call it now. Wheeljack’s mold will be re-tooled as Sunstreaker.

Any ideas?

Weird, one of my faves, probably from having the orig as a child plus it always reminded me of some of the robots in Ulysses 31 which getting toys of were near impossible back then (Shoji Kawamori creator of Macross VFs/jetfire/skids toy did some work on that cartoon too, not sure which designer created diaclone hoist). The Robot mode looks like it will go well with the classics Grapple and 3rd party ironhide as they all have back arm kibble which is partly why I'll skip Earthstrikes grapple.

Edit* also ID toys in UK has preorders up for them.

Wow... G1 designs... again... so innovative.
Ironworks and the MMs are the only ones here I have any interest in at all.
Oh and fyi the nycc exclusives are up on pulse.

Indeed. But that's not to say that I don't like him.

Sometimes, things are good because they're so bad. When I was a kid I thought he was the derpiest thing I'd ever seen. But now, I have come to appreciate his derp.

I'm maybe most excited for Hoist out of everything we've seen.
And maybe the shield dude. :D
