Looking at some Amazon listings for upcoming items from the Transformers: War for Cybertron Siege toyline, we have a number of previously revealed at New York Comic Con 2018 figures - of which you can see images in our very own galleries here, or official images here - including the likes of

  • Tra Gen Wfc Deluxe Fan Vote Autobot aka Mirage
  • Tra Gen Wfc Deluxe Fan Vote Decepticon aka Impactor
  • Tra Gen Wfc Deluxe Reflector / Refraktor
  • Tra Gen Wfc Deluxe Brunt
  • Tra Gen Wfc Deluxe Red Alert

What is new, especially at the 19.99 USD price point, is a listing for a Barricade that we had yet to see talked about or mentioned in the line. Join the discussion and speculate away on what the character might be, given the original G1 character is part of the Race Car Patrol Micro Master team!

19.99 is Deluxe pricepoint now right? If so I suspect that Barricade is probably a fusion of G1 and film designs, considering that unlike most micromasters (and over late G1 subline characters) who have mostly been consigned to history until now, Barricade is probably more known for his Cop Car persona.

yeah i agree with that.

nothing wrong them releasing (half) Race Track Patrol and calling one Barricade though. I believe Micromaster teams are marketed by their team names and not the individual names anyway.


Did anyone ask if say Nightflight & Tailwind were going to join their team mates at some point?

If he's a Deluxe, then he most likely is a Prowl retool which use the Evergreen Barricade.

The completionist in me is saying "buy all the things", but my sensible, early G1 centric self is saying

"only get the MTMTE toys"....

This line already looks like a winner to me, though. I wasn't into the Titan Masters stuff and POTP felt too late to jump in (except the fembots, I nabbed those).

Thats cool since Shockwave and Soundwave showed up in the MTMTE crossover ;)

Can’t wait to see Impactor! I’ve lost too many bidding wars for his Combiner wars exclusive, and the FOC figure is just straight up lame. Hopefully he’s accurate to both his G1 UK look and his IDW look.

My only concern is why they’re making him a Decepticon? I get the whole “versus” aspect of the fan vote, but it would hav been plenty believable if he was a rogue Autobot, or specifically designated as a Wrecker. That’s like releasing a Decepticon Cliffjumper if you ask me.

It's supposed to be before he chose his finalized side in the war, with Mirage being the one who convinces him to join.

That’s suprisingly satisfying

I just hope they go the same route they did with CW Megatron and include optional stickers so you can choose which side to give him, or maybe something similar to RotF Wheelie with the rotating symbol to convey the message if that's their story for it

It definitely seems like he has a sort of “mild” redemption thing going on with this new fiction. Makes me wonder if we’ll be getting an exclusive comic or even another short cartoon series, but I doubt it. Not like Cyberverse is sweeping the fandom.

But the insignia flipping gimmick has always been a favorite of mine, especially Armada Sideways and Animated Shockwave

Cyberverse is better than most people give it credit for. Also if we get a Siege miniseries, let's hope its comic only, machima did no favours with the Prime Wars Trilogy.

After looking at the scale guide for the Sunbow cartoon, it makes total sense that Reflector is deluxe. Also means Omega Supreme might be slightly taller than Devastator.

Well if the Race Track Patrol get a WFC update it will be without their leader

If it's a Deluxe of this design, I'm buying it so fast, I want this in plastic form so badly.

Omega should be, but with Hasbro you never know. To compare to 18 inch (almost 46 cm) CW/UW Devastator, an Ideal Titan Omega Supreme would be about 20 inches (almost 51 cm). But that is at the head, so if he looks like the classic, the tracks protruding from his back would be quite extensive one would think...I guess we'll see in the coming months.

Didn't they say at SDCC that if they were to make a titan Omega He'd be in scale with CW/UW Devastator?

Nothing was said at SDCC other than Warden ...(paraphrasing) -We are always looking at the next BIG thing. When you think of the critical last days of Cybertron...what Titan comes to mind?

*I* would have thought that Hasbro would make a Trypticon to scale with Metroplex, didn't happen. Not saying it's a bad toy, or that Hasbro would do the same thing again, just pointing out a past example.

AH, my bad. I thought I had seen that somewhere, but I was also one of the people who immediately jumped at the thought that Omega would be the titan. Let's hope quality control is better than Trypticon though... I waited months after the hip problem was announced before picking one up and even now I'm still worried his hips'll die on me like his tail did

Could tryp be scaled to metroplex height, still have the length on him and still fit the price point?
