We have breaking news, fellow Seibertronians! Forum member Jtprime17 has alerted us to an exciting announcement on the YouTube channel of Kevin Liu! You may recall back when Transformers Generations Selects Combat Megatron was first announced that some listings accidentally called out a Voyager Class "Red Wing" in the description, instead of Megatron. Well, it looks like Red Wing will indeed be coming to the Transformers Generations Selects line as the second official SIEGE entry, WFC-GS02. The video isn't live yet. It looks like it is set to release around 9:00 PM EST (6:00 PM, PT). The video is embedded below for your convenience, so check back here in about 5 hours from the time this article is posted to see what will perhaps be the world premiere of Transformers Generations Selects War for Cybertron Trilogy SIEGE Voyager Class WFC-GS02 Red Wing! Enjoy!



What do you think of this obscure, come lately addition to the ever expanding ranks of "cartoon background G1 seekers" in your Generations collections? Let us know in the comments that follow, especially after his world premiere, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

It looks just the way I hoped it would, and it will probably be my only SIEGE Seeker

I guess Red Wing is technically a redeco of Thundercracker, since he too has the new "smirk face."

I'm waiting to see if Black Mamba or Weijiang makes oversized versions of this mold. I'm not going to buy the voyagers if I can get leaders.

I can't wait to see his blindinly red altmode. I still haven't decided if I'm just going to treat him as a G1 styled Armada Starscream yet or not.

One thing that I appreciated about the original classics seekers being deluxes, was their affordability. Finally got starscream and will probably the only version I’ll get unless there’s some heavy remolding down the line.

Has anyone ever confirmed the existence of a metal pin variant of starscream? Or was it all unsubstantiated? If they released a version of one of the other seekers with the pin I would definitely buy one.. as if I d the toy excellent except for the chest popping off all the time.

From what I've found it seems to have just been a hoax, but who knows maybe they'll pin Thundercracker.

Wow, that looks really good!

I think I'll get him. Not really a fan of the mold, but if I get one or 2, he'll be one of them. That red is delicious

He said the chest piece is a bit tighter than the starscream. Also that its slated for August 1st wide release. His copy was 1/100 early release in Taiwan thru some retailer that i'm too lazy to look up

So glad he's finally getting his due.

Glad to have been involved in this character existing.

Swoopscream? Gender neutral Windblade? Hey is Selects just where all the unused red plastic goes because it’s like, so ...so very red. i hope the QC issues get a little TLC before he gets released.

I thought I would be waiting to get any version of this mold until I saw an Acid Storm, Sunstorm, or Ramjet, but I'm a sucker for the Armada Screamer color scheme and more rare/obscure Cons, so Red Wing is officially added to the list. Love that he even has two shades of red on the alt mode, and that he has the smirk face.

So in other words, Starscream and Thundercracker's face sculpts got switched.

Well, if they don't, Combiner Wars should fulfill your desire for oversize Seekers.

Any more word yet on Selects Turtler/Snaptrap?

...this may make me want to go back and get the main three.


But you know what? I would much rather have gotten this in the Classics mold. Yes I realize that toy is ancient, does not match the play pattern, and is too small, but for completion's sake, couldnt we have gotten it one more time?

That white face and the colors definetely give me an Armada Starscream vibe. Might need to get a sword for this guy. Any suggestions?

Maybe a clear orange version of the Micromaster Air Patrol - kiiiiinda in that same vein kiiiinda nod to the IDW version of the swords kiiiiinda would be a clear orange burning guts fire mega spyblade ooook with that Dazzlestrike fire effect? Side of spicy wings with that? Sweating yet?

I'm surprised that mold survived all the uses; 30 give or take. :shock:

Honestly, this is by far my favourtie colour scheme for the Siege Seeker mold, and I am definitely very tempted. He's almost Armada Starscream, to the point where I think I would just repurpose him as such for the start of my CHUG seekers collection.

I'm loving this color scheme. I'm probably only going to pick up this guy, Skywarp, and Thundercracker in terms of this mold. The battle damage on Starscream kinda ruins that figure for me so I might just repurpose this figure as Armada Starscream's cybertronian mode

There's not really anything going on, being such an obscure character born of misunderstanding between Takara, Hasbro, E-Hobby and Funpub. So I guess the appeal is 1) Hey, one more Siege seeker! and 2) Well, he's never had a toy before!.

Maybe add 3) Hey, we can actually buy an obscure-ass Seeker figure without Botcon these days! Hooray!

I think a LOT of fans are planning on doing the same, honestly. It shouldn't be hard to do either. Starscream's head comes off without much effort.

I would also add 4) His color scheme is very similar/the same as Armada Starscream, if you're into that, and 5) the fan involvement with the character's creation, as it's pretty much Powered Convoy's fault that Red Wing went from misunderstanding to obscure Seeker/actual character, and I at least think that's pretty cool. ;)^

His color is certainly lovingly eye-popping and he'd definitely look great in a crowd because in general bright red Decepticons aren't quite common. In fact I'm fairly certain he's the only red one in Siege so far and yes, I do sort of count him as a Siege toy.
Re: Transformers Generations Selects SIEGE Voyager Class Red Wing to be Revealed Tonight (2023225)
Posted by D-Maximal_Primal on June 1st, 2019 @ 6:54pm CDT
Yeah, Redwing is by far the best looking Seeker to use that mold so far. I will get him.

Count me among them. HasTak obviously goofed and mixed up the face sculpts at the factory.

Yeah, he's basically just another distinct Seeker for the ranks. With the bonus of being one who has no prior toy

If the battle damage is the only issue, just wipe it off with some rubbing alcohol. I like the damage overall, but I might wipe it off of some figures after I add Selects characters like Smokescreen.

You can't wipe off the battle damage when it's paint on paint, though. Battle damage paint on bare plastic is no problem to remove, but when it's on top of already paint on detail, you're going to lose both paints in the process.

If you are referring to the 'Rainmaker' trio, then the yellow one is not Sunstorm but rather called Nova Storm. Their trio consist of Acid Storm, Nova Storm and Ion Storm. People assume Sunstorm is considered a Rainmaker (he isn't, its Nova Storm who is the yellow one)....except when his Botcon set is called that due to miscommunications. Oops.

So just out of curiosity, how do we tell the difference between Sunstorm and Nova Storm? Are they a different shade of yellow? Because when I see a yellow seeker I immediately think Sunstorm.

As for Red Wing, I really like the sharp red paint, it pops. I bet he looks great next to Thundercracker, his blue is really sharp as well. Not sure if I will pick it up, I only collect Starscream. But the vehicle mode for this mold looks really good with a solid paint job, regardless of which color.

Sunstorm is more cheddar cheese yellow with white. Nova Storm is more solid lemon yellow.

Thank you. I don't think I've ever gotten a really good look at Nova Storm before, or if I did I might have thought he was just a miscolored Sunstorm. :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for two similarly coloured seekers, they did that again in Cyberverse with Nova Storm and Slipstream and I sure couldnt tell them apart just based on colour.

If your Cyberverse reference is what I think it is, then what they did might actually be worse: they took Nova Storm, who is usually yellow and technically the only yellow named Seeker since Sunstorm is orange, and made them purple and a female character despite the show ALSO using Slipstream, causing possible confusion where there didn't need to be.

Yes excactly, and they kept that all throughout the show, making it very confusing in the final climactic battles.

Yes excactly, and they kept that all throughout the show, making it very confusing in the final climactic battles.
Slipstream is purple and teal, though, and has a black helmet. Cyberverse Nova Storm is all purple (well, two shades of purple, but even her helmet is purple).
