Live from the floors of New York Comic Con, we have new images of the newly revealed Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise figures! Earthrise continues the War for Cybertron stories following Siege, and is the middle part of the War for Cybertron Trilogy. Earthwise features a return to more Earth based alternate modes, and drops the battle damage aesthetic that Siege utilized.

The new bots shown were Hoist, Grapple, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, Ironworks, Soundbarrier, Starscream, Optimus Prime as well as some Micromasters.

Here is what we learnt from John Warden, concerning all these new toys.

The new gimmick is shields that can connect to base bots to make a bigger base.

While there will still be Battlemasters, there will also be armour based bots that will help build the bases with clear pieces. Soundbarrier, a new character, is who was on display to represent these new bots.

Starscream is based on the classics deluxe and thus the transformation will be almost the same.

Earthrise Prime shares parts with Siege prime but has a different Transformation. The matrix is removeable and he has silver hands.

Cliffjumper comes with the giant cannon he had in the G1 show for one episode. He fits in Optimus' trailer. Cliffjumper is his own mold and not meant to be Bumblebee down the road. You can add modular elements to him (same with Hoist).

Hoist can tow characters or attach to your mini cities and his robot mode can become a bridge like he did in G1.

Astrotrain will be rereleased in Earthrise packaging since he (and Omega) work with the new base building system.

Deluxes like Ironworks are called Modular Battlestations and in earthrise we will be getting the classic bases from g1 turned into partsforming bots.

Check out our images below, and let us know what you think of these new figures in the comments section below! And stay tuned for more New York Comic Con coverage on Seibertron.com!

Better look at Voyager Starscream. His back looks pretty similar to the '06 Classics Deluxe. #NYCC2019 #NYCC19 #Transformers

Some closer shots of Wheeljack. One of the goals of Earthrise is to draw from the cartoon models as much as they can. #NYCC2019 #NYCC19 #Transformers

Starscream shares the same transformation as the classics deluxe. He is an improved upscaled version, similar to how the SS voyager Starscream was an improved upscale version of the DOTM deluxe

The main line is getting an MP-like Hoist before the actual MP line. :lol:

This is basically the same toy except that it's a brand new mold, and likely has better articulation.
I suspect the arms/hands collapse in a similar fashion to MP-39 Sunstreaker before they're flipped into the torso like Henkei. And the feet fold down instead of up, it seems. Was hoping ten years of engineering would fix some of the things I didn't like about the old mold.

Okay, all these are way cool. Only gripes with Optimus are the yellow eyes and the gray fists.

I wonder how many Seekers we will get this time... *le sigh*

Looks like I will be retiring the Gdo Cliffjumper... Just not the Prime Hammer. Because what goes with a gun that makes things brittle as glass better than HAMMAH TIME

For being G1, I am glad we are getting some lesser used Guys. We dont have a lot of Grapple or Hoist Figures i will be getting both...

And possibly Screamer, depending on how many Seekers we get...

And Prime

And the Base Dudes

And the Micromasters

Would anyone like to buy a Kidney?

Perhaps? But for sure pivotable. They look to be painted silver on the bottom and form his wings.

Wheeljack is an absolute must, cliffjumpers alt looks Great so ill pick that up, hoist looks incredible which is a shame because i love the T30 mold. Im a little conflicted with starscream because if were getting the rest of the og3 seekers id rather hold off on getting the siege ones, but if not maybe they do the coneheads like in the classics line? Overall earth rise is looking really solid, but wheres the rest of the cons lol?

I'm actually going to be selling many of my previous CHUG figures (including the seekers) to fund these. There is still market for them.

Well, hopefully we do get a Bumblebee from this line at some point. Cliff's new mold reminds me a lot of MP-21, I dig it.

Starscream's looking really good too, I might be picking him up.

I'm pretty sure that one time Hoist was a bridge... He just laid down...
