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!

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, if they bastardize one of my all time favorite primes into that shittastic Siege "leader" mold, I'm going to set shit on fire.

It's definitely helped my copy of the figure. The flaps are still easily removeable with a minimum of force, but they don't just fall off at the slightest touch now. I was able to transform Ironhide into alt mode without any problems. When transforming him back, however, one of the leg/side panels did pop off, but I think that had more to do with the pressure I needed to use to untab the panel. I tried again and was able to get it to untab while not upsetting the friction hinge. I was surprised that widening the holes just slightly was enough to have an appreciable effect, and the plastic wasn't even stressed, which was a concern of mine before trying this fix.

I know it seems totally counterintuitive. Just be careful everyone! Like the Voyager Starscream running fix with his chest plate, they should have put a pin in those leg panels.

That Starscream running change was confirmed to be a hoax a while ago. Someone modified their copy of the figure and claimed that it was a running change when it actually wasn't.

I wouldn't want a pin in the leg panels. Sure, I don't like them coming loose so easily, but I wouldn't want the risk of broken parts. Overall, I think it's a very minor issue.

Thanks for the replies. And if the Galaxy Prime will be a retool/repaint for Solo Prime/nemesis will be great and a good reason to buy it...actually I really don't like this figure. Any hope for bumblebee or other cybertronians, like Kup or Arcee maybe? I really like this line, it's awesome! Maybe the Dinobots too...will be cool!

I'm going to swap them over to the regular "G1" Siege Sideswipe and give the black cannon with red missile to G2 Sideswipe. That'll sooth my "show accuracy" needs. The black and red will still match with G2 Sideswipe, and the original G2 didn't have that shoulder launcher anyway, but a different neon green gun with elongated blue missile.

I'm tempted to get a second set to do something similar for the upcoming Siege Red Alert (since he doesn't come with any shoulder launcher accessories), but I don't know what I'd do with an extra G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance. $50 is a lot of money for an just accessory for an action figure.



Hey Wolfman the same missile color issue was bugging me too, even moreso with Hound's rocket launcher with no rocket. I don't want a G2 Sideswipe but for a second I was like, man, but that missile color...For Hound I went through all my old plastic missiles and found a grey one and sanded it down to a point and it works great. If anyone saves all their old missiles from toy lines long past I think most of 'em are approximately our beloved 5mm peg size. A little sanding and patience and you can do an easy custom that fills that gap.

I'm keeping all the candidates from the last fan vote in the back of my head. We have a new Omega Supreme a new Hound - I'm silently pining for a new Arcee (that doesn't share the Chromia mold), a Deathsaurus, and after we got Overlord finally, I would love to see Hasbro have a go at a leader Star Saber...and like good guy Victory Saber not wackadoo religious zealot IDW Saber...brrr, that guy was creepy.

Kup and the Dinobots though, man, we had them so recently as much as I'd love to see them through the Siege prism I think it'll be a while. A Kup where I don't have to paint the forearms would be rad.

It will be strange if they don't do a bumblebee under the seige line, if they are keeping the line relatively spacey and off earth to avoid duplicating characters maybe the lines after siege will focus on other planets like nebulos for more headmasters and then some of the other planets from cybertron series to have some more beasts/race planet cars and a cybertron megatron redo to go with the galaxy prime. Would be nice to see some more victory stuff redone (with the exception of starsabre for me).

So I finally got tired of waiting for Laserbeak and Ravage to show up in stores and ordered them off Hasbro Pulse yesterday. They arrive tomorrow, which means of course I saw them in stores today.

Wow, they are tiny. WAY too tiny for my liking.

Is anyone else just going to end up using the TR cassettes/tablets with Siege Soundwave? As imperfect as the TR versions are, size-wise they are much better than the itty bitties in Siege for me.

That's what I have in my display right now, since we don't have a full compliment of Micromaster Soundwave minions just yet. The TR Legends sized minions look a bit too big to really fit in scale with Siege Voyager Soundwave. They really were meant to go with TR Leader Soundwave, after all.

TR is definitely a bit too big, but for me at least, they are closer to the right size than the Siege micromasters are. Poor ravage only comes up to Soundwave's calf.

My closest Walmart has not carried any leader class for any line in well over a year. But for some odd reason/good timing, they got Two cases of wave 1 Siege, and one case of wave 2 which resulted in Three Shockwaves, Two UM, and One Galaxy Prime, all on the shelf at the same time. I moved the Prime into 3rd position on the shelf, so anybody who wanted him would have to do a bit of digging, but not too hard. ;) I'm sure next time I go there, at least half of those leaders will be gone.

I wouldn't be surprised, but another Walmart further out from me has had them for a while (Just Shockwave & UM). Of course, those have anti-theft devices affixed to them as well.

Anyone else feel like they're going to re-release these characters either with less battle damage, less greebling, or more earthly alt-forms every couple of years, just so we all buy them again? At the very least, I foresee more redecoes like Special Edition Prime and Megs. Things like a red-eyed Soundwave, maybe a Shockwave with trans-purple hands and a brighter general hue. But there will always be *something* keeping them from being "perfect" like RtS Jazz was. Even masterpiece isn't immune to this with all the + edition redecoes.

Some may consider this a dick move, but if I ever come across a figure I want really bad, but for some reason can't get it right then, I take it to another aisle and hide it behind some bigger stuff, usually on the bottom shelf. Hasn't failed me yet.

I should be getting mine tomorrow, but if they are tiny, that might work with my Leader Bumblebee movie version of TR Soundwave. I had hoped to fit a bunch of tiny Micro-cassettes into his chest so he can hold multiples at once. And I have some of the TR cassettes too, so no big disaster

For Bumblebee I really hope they give us a new one...with the movie success, and how much this guy is love by fans, I really hope they made a Siege one too.

More different planets...hmm...Ok, will be interesting. ;)^


For now, I'm focused on getting next Thundercracker, Spring, Barricade, Reflektor, Mirage and Smookescreen....next Jetfire! 8-)

And I see the powers of the prime: Dinobots - just really don't like them... I'm a big fan of Dinobot and I want them made really great like the planet X version for examples :BOWDOWN:

But for some odd reason/good timing, they got Two cases of wave 1 Siege, and one case of wave 2 which resulted in Three Shockwaves, Two UM, and One Galaxy Prime, all on the shelf at the same time. I moved the Prime into 3rd position on the shelf, so anybody who wanted him would have to do a bit of digging, but not too hard. ;) I'm sure next time I go there, at least half of those leaders will be gone.
Some may consider this a dick move, but if I ever come across a figure I want really bad, but for some reason can't get it right then, I take it to another aisle and hide it behind some bigger stuff, usually on the bottom shelf. Hasn't failed me yet.


That's not a dick move - a dick move is buying something and returning it with something different, that's a dick move. What you describe? That's survival in the collector jungle my friend.

At $20.00+ a pop is anyone really going to get three Refraktors? Ideally I'd love it sure but eh, I think I'll be cool getting one just to check it out. Man if only there was like one with a smirking face how they did with Thundercracker or just an extra stripe of paint or something on another to distinguish them into three characters.

Getting just 3 Refraktors is nothing compared what some people have done when it comes to army building. Personally, I'm getting 3 just for the camera mode, as my dad was a photographer.
