Transformers News: Transformers Siege Refraktor 3 Pack New Images and Camera Mode Instructions
Thanks to a post yesterday on TFND on Facebook we have new images of the Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Refraktor Reconnaissance three pack with Spectro, Spyglass, and Viewfinder! These images give us excellent close ups of the individual robot modes, the packaging, and each page of the detailed instruction manual.

The manual gives some fun back story on the various functions of the different Refraktor units, a breakdown of their weapons even giving each of their similar blasters different names, and full instructions on assembling the camera mode. Although the camera mode instructions are shown in the images from TFND they are not very clear. The actual camera mode assembly instructions are however shown quite clearly in a downloadable PDF posted to TakaraTomy which we've provided above. You can head to TakaraTomy and download the PDF by clicking the image or the link here. You can pick up the Recon 3 Pack at any of our various sponsors such as Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store, and The Chosen Prime. Are you going to pick up the team and start gathering your spy data on your enemies? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

I think if they had gone all the way with the toy accuracy (Re-sculpted head and chests, more accurate color layouts) I'd go for the 3 pack set.

They'll probably save that for the inevitable MP+ version. Of course, first both versions of Siege Refraktor should actually perform well.

I just like that they gave different names to the 3 identical blasters.

Siege Jetfire is totally the Jetfire cherry on my Jetfire cake. Had to share:

Thanks! :-D
I’m always trying to get better at shooting these bots. Still working out my background arrangement.

And I know right? Jetfire AND his armada...

I don’t have them all but come on it’s Jetfire. Everyone loves at least one version of Jetfire, and there’s so many to choose from. I feel like Soundwave he’s one of those G1 characters that is just iconic. He’s always come back time and again in so many stories.

His designs, his backstory with the Robotech snafus, his sometimes compatibility with Prime, he’s just a stand out. And ever since Christmas 1985 he’s always been a favorite of mine :lol:

I have to say this Jetfire is definitely a big ‘hey how are you this is what we can do’ eye opener to me. I’m so super impressed despite mines face mask not staying on and a teeny scuff on the side of his head it’s like I don’t even care. It feels like playing with an old big Star Wars toy somehow it just really takes me back in so many different ways. Hard to peg it down.

Sorry to ramble my cup runneth over with Jetfire :lol:

It's too bad that the big sticker for Viewfinder for the Refraktor 3-pack says "REFRAKTOR" instead of "REFLECTOR." I know they had to market the name on the box differently because of different trademark (or defensibility) reasons compared to back in the 80's, but did the sticker have to suffer too? It would have been nice if maybe Hasbro and Takara had included an alternate sticker set to increase the G1 toy accuracy, but I think we would have heard about it by this point. Maybe Toyhax/Reprolabels will come through for us?

While the figure's release was scheduled for September 1st in Canada, EB Games got their stock a few days early and have filled out preorders for those who ordered in stores (including a preorder for your fellow news editor). Since EB Games is the only store in Canada getting these, they have a lot to spare and have stocked their shelves. You can see that below in an image coming from a sighting in Montreal, Canada.
Of course, this may give Americans the need to drop by their nearest Walgreens to see if they received them. However, as we know by now that would be a waste of time. The US will only begetting these once fall starts and Walgreens does a Holiday restock.

One interesting thing to note, now that I have the toy, is that the medical bay mode truly is an official mode with most of the instructions sheet dedicated to it.

The price in Canada is $29.99 but $26.99 for platinum card holders.

Well, here's hoping he ends up on Walgreens site. I have yet to see a Walgreens exclusive at the store

Thanks to Seibertronian Microbot and the Playhouse Toy Photography Facebook page, we have news of some brand new in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Omega Supreme! These new images give us a fantastic look at Omega, including his alternate mode, his robot mode, his individual rocket, Countdown, and even some Titan/Prime Master interaction! Omega is looking really dang cool in these new shots, and he shows that he has a lot of playability with the Micromasters of this line and the Masters of previous lines. He also shows that he is no slouch with regards to weapons, with an impressive arsenal of torso mounted weapons in addition to his rocket hands.

Omega Supreme is due out in the next 2 months following his delay from this Summer, and will retail for $159.99.

Check out all the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I wish someone could do a review of this Omega with the tank from the original G1 Omega to see if it could fit on these new tracks. Because if it did fit, it would be my saving grace to justify getting this one. If I could replace this non functioning tank with my G1 version which can actually move around the tracks and continuously rotate it's turrent and patrol, then that combined with Siege Omega's beautifuly detailed and articulated robot mode AND much bigger size makes this a must have.

Were you a fan of the stop-motion videos that Hasbro Taiwan put out earlier this year, featuring the War for Cybertron: Siege line? Here's another gem from the official YouTube account of the Transformers brand, showcasing Optimus Prime, Hound, and especially, Six Gun, as a Weaponizer, combining with Optimus.



While these do showcase figures that have been out for some time, the video is beautifully done, with great animation and awesome 80s laser sound effects.

Would you like to see more of this style of animation to advertise the figures and play systems, or do you just think they're fun videos? Let us know below!

The Siege Reconnaissance Refraktor three pack with toy inspired colours is not an online exclusive after all. It has been found in Toysrus Canada for $99.99 CAD. This is ahead of the anticipated 4th quarter release at online vendors. It is unknown if that means it will also be found at a store in the US. It is also unknown if it will be found across Canada since this toy does not have any other language rather than English on the box. That is typical of show exclusive toys and Refraktor was initially made to be a Hascon exclusive. The set was found by Ultra Macnus over at Cybertron.ca.

If anyone finds this toy in stores, be sure to report your sighting in the sightings forum and section.
