Thanks to several Seibertronians, we have news of potential further releases for the Netflix subline of War for Cybertron figures. From a thread on Google Groups, a Walmart employee by the screenname Zobovor was looking around in the computer and found listings for Deluxe figures from the Netflix line. These figures were listed at their own pricepoint and listing separate from regular Siege Deluxe figures. Take a look at the screenshot below.


Transformers News: Possible New War For Cybertron Netflix Series Figures Listed

So it seems that Bumblebee might finally make an appearance in a current toyline, after not having a Generations figure since Titans Return in 2016. Not only that, but we may be getting a figure of Deep Cover, a character first released by Ehobby in the early 2000s as a G1 Sideswipe recolor in a Diaclone color scheme.

Other possible figures include a Quintesson, Elita 1, Wheeljack, Red Alert, Barricade, and Impactor. As we don't have official confirmation of these figures, please take them with a grain of salt until we have news from Hasbro to share.

So what do you all make of these listings? Fo you think these figures will be new? Remolds? Recolors? Repaints? Feel free to speculate below, and stay tuned to Seibertron for all your Transformers news!

Hm... I kind of like Deep Cover's colors and think he could make a decent stand in for G2 Sideswipe if one doesn't want to get the Furestormers pack. Assuming of course that the new guy IS designed like that and not just a name reuse for a different character

Hey, the listing I clicked on took me to that post, and it was Google Groups. >:oP

I was out of collecting when the fandom was in its infancy on the 'Net, so that alt.toys.transformers doesn't have any nostalgia for me.

What I mean is, ATT still actively exists as a Google Group after all these years. That's incredible!

Absolutely incredible to me that people still actively post on formerly-Usenet groups.

Would be nice if deepcover is a new mold so that an earthrise sideswipe can be less of a block. I'd pick barricade up if he's a mirage repaint even tho I really dislike the alt mode.

Not keen on er wheeljack so I'm doubting I'll be wanting a netflix repaint. Looks like their is a lot more I'll be interested in on the second netflix wave. I can't see myself needing another impactor unless it's vastly different though I'd prefer a non idw head version other the one I have.

If this is true: remember when I brought up Elita-1 and people went "Nawwww, not likely"? Also hell yeah Deep Cover, an E-Hobby era redeco.

What if it isn't a repaint? There were rumors for so long about MTMTE Bumblebee and Wheeljack (for clarity, the Sunbow saucer and space van) for so long in the lead up to and during Siege, maybe they've landed here as exclusives?

I'm doubting that with siege only having a few figures with full cybertronian modes and netflix series being just repaints so far. I'll be happy if a Green Grapple/ehobby hauler shows up in netflix or selects. Wondering what/if any cardboard background comes with wave 2 deluxes

According to TFwiki, there are 10 pieces that makeup Teletraan 1, one in each deluxe. Wave 1 of Netflix is only five deluxes: Chromia, Hound, Sideswipe, Scrapface, and Decepticon Mirage. I'm guessing the next five will be in wave 2.

It's no different from how we first heard about the Netflix line of figures in the first place.

The thing that's really throwing me about that listing is that it's part of the Netflix line, and since that as far as we can tell is always redecoes/maybe retools, means we're getting some kind of Deluxe Cheetor in either Earthrise or Cyberverse's Deluxe line.

Maybe it's a Cybertronian Cheetor that turns into a car as a redeco of Prowl or Sideswipe?

Hmm... Honestly trying to figure out which Siege/Earthrise carbot mold I'd prefer a Cheetor from... Maybe Chromia actually? Not sure I'd prefer it, but it might match the proportions/kibble of Cheetor a bit better...

We've seen that before as a Botcon exclusive (or Collector's Club) so, eh, why not?

...Thinking about it more, given it seems Cheetor is kinda their Designated Beast Wars Ambassador character right now, not sure they'd want to make a car version right now.
Definitely not impossible, just not what I'm most expecting.
