It's been a few weeks, fellow Seibertronians, but the wait is now over! Our forum member Cyberpath has alerted us that Taiwan Hasbro has uploaded to their YouTube channel the next episode of their Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy - SIEGE stop motion shorts. "Episode 3" features two Deluxe Class Autobot cars, Sideswipe and Prowl, squaring off against a lone Voyager Class Decepticon, Starscream! Once again, the short is set in the framework of a fighting game, complete with character selection screen and a "KO!" declaration at the conclusion of the video. Amusingly, Sideswipe pulls a "Movieverse Jazz" stunt during his transformation demonstration. There's still no sign of the weapon effects parts of the Battle Master Class of the line. The hits are illustrated with computer generated lasers and sparks. Is Starscream outnumbered by the team up of Sideswipe and Prowl? Take a look for yourself below!



Be sure to check out our coverage of Episode 1 and Episode 2 if you hadn't before. Which characters would you like to see duke it out for "Episode 4" of Taiwan Hasbro's series of Transformers: SIEGE stop motion animation shorts? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest information on all things Transformers!

Starscream did a barrel roll!

Yes, I know it's actually an aileron roll; shut up, Star Fox haters!

:P

I think it would be hilarious if they had Starscream and Ironhide shoot/smash off their floppy panels in one of the next ads.

If you rotate Ultra Magnus 180 at the waist, and rotate down his cod piece, you can slide off his front grill and it makes for a much less blocky physique. The same works for Galaxy Upgrade Prime. And to boot Magnus’s grill looks like a mini boom box.

If you hold it up like Chuck does and shake it, the right leg on mine dangles so to speak.
I will add that in vehicle mode, the non painted wheels is not appealing and perhaps Toyhax will come out with something.
But all in all, still a cool figure in my opinion. I don’t own Ultra Magnus, so that would be a cool photo to see.
Who knows, may get him now.

Look closely at the detailing where the wheels are...LOOK CLOSER and you will see THEY ARE NOT WHEELS

Actually, yea, they kinda are. They're at least meant to be, otherwise they would not have been molded and painted as such on the other side.

The wheels are faux parts. On the original, the actual wheels would be on the wings, but on the Siege figure, since the actual wheels end up on his legs instead of the wings, they had to put fake wheels on the wings to keep the look of the original. In truck mode, the other side is not painted because that would have detracted from the look of the original

I don't disagree with you, but I'm looking at both of them side-by-side right now and the biggest detraction is the missing front wheel and the huge gap. At least if the front wheel were pushed back a bit, it wouldn't be so glaring. Great toy nonetheless.

Any clue about Ratchet will be a repaint of Ironhide or maybe a new mold?

According to TFWiki, Ratchet has made an appearance in the current comic now in his new figure's design, which shows him to be an Ironhide retool like we all thought, but I can't find any pictures of it online so far.

He'll probably be a head retool of Ironhide, maybe with a new lightbar to tab onto his roof.

From the looks of the comic, he will have a black chevron on top.

The more I play with Galaxy Upgrade Prime the more he seems like the perfect opportunity to retool into an IDW Nova Prime.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Galaxy Upgrade Prime gets retooled into the RID firetruck. The basic layout is already there, and it seems quite a few are clamoring for some nostalgia since the series is almost 20 years old. I, myself think it's about time we got some modern updates. Unless I'm mistaken, I think Sky-byte is the only one to receive an update so far. Obviously I'm not counting the obvious homage in Siege Ultra Magnus.

If that was going to happen, they should have done Fire Convoy first, and retooled Galaxy Convoy from him. That way he would have matched with Magnus and Car Robots was released before Galaxy Force.

A tiny screwdriver gently worked through the opening on Ironhide’s leg panel helps the peg fit more snuggly in the hole and it’s not as liable to fall right off.
