We're barely a week out since the official reveal of the second part of the Transformers Generations: War for Cybertron Trilogy. Hasbro and Takara have dubbed the second chapter "Earthrise," an apt description given the very 1980's Earth-mode centric nature of the first wave of characters, coming in 2020. Thanks to In Demand Toys on Facebook and a tip from Seibertron.com forum member Survivefan23, we've got a first glimpse at what the packaging will look like for the act to follow up Transformers Generations: War for Cybertron Trilogy - Siege. The packages will be very similar in appearance in Earthrise to their Siege counterparts, with the angled side cut on the left front face of the package, the "Transformers: War for Cybretron Trilogy" emblem on the front, and some great character artwork adorning the sides. We've got samples of Voyager Class Autobot Grapple and Decepticon Starscream for you to enjoy below.

We've also got a picture of the upcoming Leader Class Decepticon Astrotrain, slated to be the final Leader Class figure of the Siege line this winter. The box is still in the Siege format, of course. Though, keep in mind that Astrotrain is also slated to be re-released along side Leader Class Earthrise Optimus Prime in the first wave of product in 2020. It's unknown if Astrotrain will still be in the Siege packaging for his 2020 release, or if he will be changed over to the Earthrise packaging. At any rate, take a look below at the infamous triple changer in his Siege packaging.

I think he means G1 Downshift and not the Energon/Cybertron one.
I know. That's why I asked why not Slicer.

and they will find a way to do the other 2 Omnicons too, as this years Powerdashers.

Oh I want Grapple, Starscream and Astrotrain sooo bad... And Hoist, Scorponok, the micromasters and the bases.

I will say that Starscream's in package photo does actually make me want to pick him up. I didn't pick up Siege Screamer, but I think I may pick up Earthrise Screamer. I am hoping we get the Coneheads from this mold though. I'd be extremely disappointed if we didn't get them from an exclusive or through Generation Selects

Hey, if we're predicting exclusives then here's a couple I want because I know they don't stand a chance of happening at retail.

Sunstorm vs. Hauler Voyager 2 pack from Starscream and Grapple

Unicron heralds Hook, Line, and Sinker deluxe 3 pack retooled from Ironworks and friends (maybe save for 2021)

Hubcap (or Bumper) from Cliffjumper (I could see this one at retail possibly)

Mini-Spies repainted from random characters (it does get more obscure than Powerdashers!)

Pepsi Optimus Prime Electrum Optimus Prime, no real reason, just think that mold would look good in gold

Rad from Siege Prowl et al mold and a new head because Lionizer needs his partner

Do you think we can get an Overlord into commander class for Decptiocons? Or Titaldwave? Who can fit into this category for Deceptions? I really hope for a new Overlord, it will be great!

Y'know what deco I'd like to see this new Optimus mold in? The Year of the Horse Masterpiece Optimus deco. I've always loved that deco, and I think it'd be a good way to get some gold on this new Optimus without going full-on drenched in gold chrome.

I was gonna do an edit of it myself using the Earthrise Optimus cg stock photo, but I did not have the patience to even start it at the time, and still do not.

I can see both, but really the clue we have is it will go well with Omega Supreme.

I love all these ideas, but these two - :michaelbay:

Since Megatron is essentially locked into a SIEGE-like tank design of some kind, how about another G1 leader replaces him in the Earthrise line?

Image
Straxus/Darkmount?


Image
Bludgeon?

Image
Another iteration of Ratbat?

They can't do ratbat as he's a cassette at this point... But what about Clench? Or perhaps Stalker? Or even Sky Quake.

Indeed, there is a significant list. Even outliers like Dreadwing could be brought into prominence through the WFC line. Especially as the Masters are all being given new utility since SIEGE.

Naw man it will just be an even more earth-like Megatron with a tank mode!

You joke, but it’s probably true.

That or Geewun Johnny is gonna make Megs a gun.

Wouldn't suprise me if he's already tried to make it both a G1 toon accurate gun mode and a sub marine..

The rumours could be true about a leader Class armoured car that would serve as a Cybertron Megs homage...but I've got the feeling those rumours are debunked sadly.

As this lines seems to be jumping all over the place with the release timeline, there is always The Superior Decepticon Leader alternative to Megatron. The Ultimate Transformer, you might say...

Nah they're saving Galvy for the third part I reckon. Unless they plan on giving us Deathsarus they've mentioned before :-? If that was the case then I can see Galvaltron coming in part 2. Though they could just troll everyone by re-releasing the Universe Deluxe :-P :lol:

Still it would be refreshing for a different lead villain for each part of WFC. There are plenty out there, after all. I would say it would be nice for both faction leaders to be different with each part... But alas, Prime is too deeply inserted into this Geewun design team :roll: :BANG_HEAD:

It is pathetic. It is like when X-Men goes through those Low phases of putting Wolverine in the spotlight. Because (A) the writer is a fanboy (B) Mandate specifies the most bankable face needs to be in everything.

Pretty sure it's more money related than "writing" or "fanboi" related. Prime brings the bucks, he gets made. Even if it's unnecessary. (I'm looking at you, Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime.)
