It's been a week and a half since the previous installment, fellow Seibertronians, but Taiwan Hasbro has uploaded to their YouTube channel the next episode of their Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy - SIEGE stop motion shorts. Thank you to forum member 00stargrave00 for the hot tip on this upload! "Episode 4" features the two faction leaders in their Voyager forums, the Heroic Optimus Prime of the Autobots and the Tyrannical Megatron of the Decepticons. Optimus Prime isn't alone, though. He's backed up by Deluxe Wave 1 Weaponizer Cog! Once again, the short is set in the framework of a fighting game, complete with character selection screen. Unfortunately, the "KO!" declaration at the conclusion of the previous videos has been omitted leaving only the "Victory" banner to conclude the match. Generation 1 fans will recognize the battle grounds as right outside the Autobot's initial base of operations on Earth, the wreckage of the Autobot Ark buried into the base of Mount St. Hillary. 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. Can Optimus Prime and Cog successfully fend off the evil Megaontron's incursion of their home turf? Find out in the video below!

Megatron's sword flipping was so rad! :D

I was loving the diorama Ark in the background. Man that brings me back to just being a kid and playing with action figures in the backyard.

And the kids moved my Cybertronian alphabet sheet again...but I'm pretty sure that door does say To Punish and Enslave :D

Just checked, it definitely does. Doesn't necessarily mean it'll be on the final figure, but it's a good sign seeing it turn up again.

Enhance. Zoom. Enhance.

Yes. I.... I do believe that is the movie version of the Decepticon Symbol that was also present on Starscream.

Unexpected consistency...

He’s totally right! I didn’t even notice that on Starscream... what, I’m uhhh, nearly far sighted...

Maybe it’s something cool and dangerous like the Decepticon air guard sigil, pshh, because you know Seekers, so elitist. :roll:

Thunder should have a grin, Starscream should have that smirk, and Skywarp should have a jerk face, you know, like he just smelled a fart or something.

Or the designers can't tell (or rather, don't bother with) the minute differences between the G1 and Movie styles. ;)

Again, definitely getting the Off Road Patrol. btw, did anyone else notice that aside from the Air Strike Patrol, the members of any given Patrol chosen for Siege are not gang-molded (i.e. share plastic colors) back in G1?

Makes me hope their "other partners" might be hiding somewhere... but I've been pleasantly impressed with the diversity of colors in the two packs.

Some one left thundercracker uncovered whilst painting the ceiling silver, other than that he's a likely a buy and some stickers to cover up the faction symbols.
The legs look weird on the car bots to me photo wise but not been tempted to get any yet.

Barricade's (Prowl) legs? Yeah, they don't photograph well, but they look much better in person. Some of that is the weird "heel" on them like the MP "Zs"

Part of me kind of hopes if they continue with the micromasters we'll get some of the smaller playsets/vehicle combos.

We just got a Cybertronian Kup in Titans Return.

Isn't he always (minus Generations)?

Has anyone seen a resurgence of Wave 1 in their local area? I've seen Wave 2 Deluxe and Voyager only for a while, but now Wave 1 is back with a vengeance.

Funny you mention that JelZe I just hit Target and Wal-Mart this morning and spotted Voyager Prime and Megatron and I haven't seen them for a while. Wal-Mart also had a couple Hounds and Skytreads.

The Micromaster Combiner Mega-Mega-Mega...Mega Missile Firefuseblaster (tm pending) is a fearsome force on the Cybertronian battlefield. Although it's ridiculous appearance induces peals of disabling laughter, once the fireblasts are attached the enemy is rapidly reduced to heaping piles of smoking Deceptiswiss cheese...Predacon Provolone...Combaticon Camembert...Terrorcon Teleggio…I could do this all day...

You know, when we had our first reveal of Micromasters it was the Battle Patrol turning into some gun and those decepticon jet guys turning into a sword. Seeing those two made me think "Man, Micromasters not only look spot on they are also going to have a great bonus weapon mode!"

...then we saw the rest of that lineup and it was a wet fart. >:oP

I think the battle damage paint applications have been rolled back on Barricade since the last time we saw him. There are only a few scratches on the driver's side bumper/fender. (The paint apps might mirrored be on the passenger side too, but you can't really tell from these pictures.) Maybe that was the compromise to add the "To Punish and Enslave" Cybertronian text to his doors? What's more interesting, though, is the story this tells through paint applications. It looks like Barricade is no stranger to using the PIT maneuver, just like police do in a high speed chase to stop a fleeing vehicle. That's exactly where you would see paint scraping on a real car trying to spin out another car along side them.

Anyone notice that Highjump has a bit of battle damage paint on his passenger side front fender? I thought the Micromasters and Battle Masters were to be spared the battle paint applications. This could just be some paint slop, but then again, there's another weird splotch of silver paint on his chest. Or maybe, that paint on the chest is supposed to be there...on Powertrain. If you look at the G1 toy and the initial renders of the Siege version, you'll see Powertrain has an offset silver rectangle decoration on his chest.

Maybe something got messed up at the factory level and people started putting the silver rectangle on Highjump instead? Then maybe the silver paint on the fender of Highjump is just paint slop/residue left over from the hand painting process...applied to the wrong toy.
