Fellow Seibertronians, you may recall that we reported almost a week ago about a new stop motion animated short featuring the Transformers: War for Cybertron - Siege series of figures, duking it out on the battlefield in a fighting game type of framework. Well, Seibeton.com member Cyberpath has let us know that Taiwan Hasbro is continuing their series of shorts with another installment, published to their YouTube channel, this time featuring the first two Leader Class figures for the Siege line, Ultra Magnus and Shockwave! Again, the animation makes use of the fighting game motif, complete with a character select screen at a "KO!" declaration at the end of combat. This latest short shows off how to transform and armor up both Ultra Magnus and Shockwave as per their Leader Class gimmick for the line. Once again, most of the special effects are done with computer animation and not the weapon effects parts from the Battle Master Class of the line. Take a look for yourselves at the video below and see which bot stands victorious at the end!



What Transformers: War for Cybertron - Siege figures do you want to see featured in the next stop motion short by Taiwan Hasbro? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

Tell us how he colors on Sixgun match up with Takara Tomy's release of Metroplex. I have the SDCC version of Metroplex, and the reds are just a bit off from one another, but not enough to be distracting.

There can be only one. Siege Ironhide is absolutely fantastic. I’ve been trying to think of other characters aside from Ratchet it could be repainted into because it is so good, I want it many more times. Energon Tow Line might be a bit obscure for the main line, but it would be fun to see the homage get homaged.

Ultra Magnus knocked Shockwave out with a street sign? I don't think so!

Man, I was originally skipping out on the 'deluxe autobots' to not go down a spiral of trying to get the whole G1 cast but Ironhide looks really, really good. :shock:

I'm being selective about it. I ignore Siege figures if I already have CHUG versions I'm happy with as is the case with Universe 2.0 Sideswipe, the Universe 2.0 Datsun Boys, and T30 Chromia. However, if Siege makes a really obviously superior version of a character like Hound and Ironhide, I'll get them.

In my case, outside of Optimus Prime I had no '84-'85 Autobot character prior to Siege since I started during Titans Return. Since then I've gotten my hands on some of the mini-bots, namely Bumblebee, Cosmos and Brawn via their TR version and POTP Beachcomber.

So, have any more Galaxy Upgrade Primes shown up yet? There were a handful of sightings suddenly and then... nothing? Seems like the few sightings we got were some kind of fluke.

Oh yeah, I still need Leader Prime too. Guess I wasn't considering it wave 2 since it's supposed to come out alongside the Wave 3s.

Thanks to a tip off from fellow Seibertron user, TFanPage101, we've learned that YouTuber TonTon Reviews, has just reviewed the highly anticipated Commander Class Jetfire figure from the Transformers War for Cybertron Siege toyline!

In the review he goes through the basics of transformation, scale to other transformer figures (namely Leader Class Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime, Deluxe Class Prowl, Studio Series Leader Class Jetfire and Studio Series Voyager Class Movie 1 Optimus Prime), all the points of articulation, and a run down on all the action points of the toy. This includes showing its interaction with other Siege figures and how Titan/Prime Masters can get in the fun via Jetfire's cockpit!

We have embedded the video below for your convenience.



What do you think of this figure? Are you looking forward to adding Jetfire to your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

haven't watched the thing in detail... but it's shaping up to be an awesome toy. TF of the year will prolly be a battle between this and omega supreme for me.

Really wish he would have also used a CW Combiner for size comparison to see just how accurate Hasbro's 11-inch claim really was.

When Hasbro first revealed Jetfire, they claimed it to be 11 inches tall.

That height, however, would make the figure shorter than the likes of the CW Combiners (who are all about 11.5 inches tall), when all images of the toy make it appear to be much taller than that.
