What might probably be the biggest news of the week has possibly given us another rather big reveal, unintentionally. We just newsed the first look at the Transformers reboot from IDW. In it, we see art of the Siege toys, down to swivels, pegs and pins. We can see Starscream, Megatron and of course Optimus. However, the Optimus body used in the picture is not the Siege voyager toy from wave 1. Instead, Optimus Prime is sproting the body of the inner voyager from the leader class Ultra Magnus. The chest looks retooled but still has a similar shape and a bigger giveaway is the tab near his feet.

We know that the only other leader class toy from Siege will be Optimus Prime and this may be our very first look at the inner robot. Which would mean that Siege leader class Optimus Prime would be a redeco/retool of Ultra Magnus. Of course, this is just speculation, but with such an attention to the toy details, we did want to bring it to your attention.

Also, in Transformers Siege news, Walmarts in Canada recieved a specialized display from Hasbro to highlight the toys. All classes, except for leaders, can be found on a two story carbdoard display stand with Siege art. You can see it below.

Not quite a repaint - the chest is retooled, and resembles more Cybertron Prime's truck mode than RID Magnus's (as Ultra Magnus's does), which is likely indicative of retooling for the trailer/larger bot mode as well.

Didnt read that comic but I heard it was awesome.
It wasn't a comic, it was a book. (Unless there is a comic and I'm not aware?) And yes, it was pretty good.
Nuh uh. Defiance was a comic series.

Yep. The angled shapes of those windows and the roof of the cab... I'd know those anywhere.

Isn't Siege Ultra Magnus just a repaint/redeco of the Prime already in the line?

Yes! I really hope that's actually the plan here, cause as much as I want that figure, the size is just too big for my current collection. A new, smaller version would be very much welcomed :D

Now that I think about it, SIEGE Magnus' secondary guns (the twin black ones) bear more than a passing resemblance to Cybertron Optimus' calf guns.

Not remotely; everything from the thighs to the legs to the forearms to the shoulders to (of course) the torso and everything else is different; the only thing that might even possibly be the same mold is the head.

Uh, yes please, right now :DANCE:

Another super Optimus? Not interested. Not with a good PotP leader with Orion Pax, and a beautiful Siege voyager.

Edit: Cybertron Prime though? Uh.. Well.. Now I like it slightly more.

While I'm happy we're possibly getting an update to Cybertron Prime, it's the second line in a row where we were close to getting a proper PMOP.

Imagine if this Cybertron influenced Prime could then combine with Rid influenced UM, to create omega prime? Do you think Warden would do that to prove he's not just a G1 purist?

I am pretty sure he does not feel like he has to prove anything other than the fact that he can design good toys.

That would probably depend on if you could combine two Siege Ultra Magnus toys together, since both it and Optimus are the same base mold. ;)

Ehhhhhhh...personally I give him 50-50. While a good deal of the Titans Return Line has some of my favorite figures recently, POTP does almost nothing for me. Combined Wars also had good figures, but was made up soooo many repaints. I understand it was necessary, but mold fatigue was real for me. Siege has some good stuff, but then again there’s no Beast Wars love happening outside of MPs so that gets me down.

YMMV of course, this is all just my opinion.

If it's a straight Magnus repaint I'll pass...
