Coming just days ahead of New York Comic Con 2019, we have our first look at the follow up line to War for Cybertron: Siege! Several Seibertronians have sent us a link to an article on IGN which gives us the first renders of the new toys. Titled "War for Cybertron: Earthrise", the first figures to be revealed for the line show off all size classes beginning with none other than Optimus Prime himself, in the Leader Class! Optimus looks to possibly be a retool of his Siege Voyager Class figure, but it's not known for sure at this time whether or not that is the case, or if he's an all new mold. Regardless, we can see a deco free of battle damage, which is sure to please fans who like a cleaner look.

In keeping with the trend of Siege Leader Class figures, this figure appears to be a Voyager size figure with additional accessories and/ or armor, and in this case, it's Prime's iconic trailer! He also features a gun and shield.

While Roller is not included with this iteration of Prime and his trailer, it does come with the Combat Deck, doubling as a repair bay.

Moving along, we have confirmation of three figures that were leaked in a listing last week, the first of which is Voyager Class Grapple!

Continuing on to Deluxe Class, we have something of a new character, Ironworks! Formerly a Micromaster base, Ironworks has been given a robot mode, and looks to be a similar style to the Weaponizers of the Siege line, being able to be taken apart to be rearranged into base mode. Maybe this will be a big feature of the upcoming line? And if I'm not mistaken, it looks like Ironworks has connectors that will allow connections to base modes of figures from previous lines...

Being that Ironworks was a Micromaster base, it seems only fitting to keep including Micromasters in Earthrise as well! Big Daddy and his buddy Trip-Up are heading up the Hot Rod patrol.

So there you have it for the first glimpse of Transformers War for Cybertron: Earthrise! No doubt we'll see at least a few more reveals at NYCC 2019 this weekend, hopefully some Decepticons among them.

What do you think, fellow Cybertronians? Are you excited about this new line and these new figures? Please let us know below, and feel free to speculate away on what the next figures will be!

I look at that Prime and that Grapple and just can't help but lament that this is what the original Classics toys from 2006 should have been like in the first place (knowing full well that the Hasbro team of that era would have never felt the same way), and that if they had, then we could now be getting something more innovative.

Basically, it feels like if the Classics toys had recreated the original character designs instead of making updated versions then the current toys wouldn't have to keep going back trying to recreate what the Classics toys opted not to do.

A few notes about the Micromasters:

- Big Daddy's buddy is Trip-Up, though it remains to be seen if he actually keeps the name
- Now we know the reason why "Irontread" is named as such: trademark nothing, the base is named Ironworks now. Coincidentally, this lines up with the BotCon 2012 Invasion story.

Definitely gonna try and get Ironworks and the Hot Rods. I'm content with my Henkei Convoy and RtS Solar Storm Grapple, so no need in getting the Earthrise ones.

wow, another "G1" Optimus Prime already! And this time with a better truck mode. (And a trailer. And the Matrix.) They left out the crotch unpainted again though, and the eyes are yellow.

I wanted a proper CHUG Prime and now they won't stop coming. :))

It's time they made an effort to hide his wheels in CHUG too, at least for one Prime figure.

And why the MP-10 style head again? They just used something like this for PotP & Siege. I think they should use the MP-44 sculpt for inspiration. (And while they're at it, I'd love a Starscream with a face-sculpt that does him justice, and a fun transformation for the canopy.)

Grapple looks great, too! Like a simplified version of MP-35 (but not too simple.)

I wish all this stuff came out like five or ten years ago.

BTW, you know who'd make a cool weaponiser or whatever's the next comparable thing?

Grapples truck front/torso wont really suit inferno so I'm hoping for retooling rather than repaint.

Ironworks...very brave trying to get a 'base' out of a deluxe sized figure (thought TR would have been a good lesson that they need to be Voyager at the min) but it looks good and definitely what I was wanting out of the line to give the micromasters some purpose, plus a robot mode to and still weaponiserish parts.

Primes Trailers looks small :( and not much for the buck in a leader class figure but definitely my first war for cybertron prime toy.

As for the toy line name, could be worse.

Oh hasbro u dirty bastards. Grapple is exactly what I wanted them to do with the character.

Earth prime... well ne makes siege prime completely redundant....

Ironworks is one of the cleverest updates of a g1 concept....

On the latest Twincast we speculated all kinds of ideas on what this Prime could be. Even the idea that he could be Siege Prime retooled with more Earth mode parts and a trailer add-on. At first glance that'swhat I thought this was, but upon closer inspection, I think it's a whole new mold!

We also kinda nailed it on Ironworks! :lol:
So Weaponizers have been traded up for Baseinizers? Fortinizers?
Whatever they are, count me in!

I hear what you're saying Sabrblade about these vs. Classics, but I'm no less excited. I think that Grapple looks pretty fun.
Hope we see more of the line by the end of the weekend.

Not too sure about TR: what look like TR connectors are actually halves of Omega's. TR connectors are the same throughout, but the halves are split between "male" (the "C-shaped" ones) and "female"

Prime's cab seems too big for the trailer or the trailer is too small :-?

The optimus also come with moving finger(if you look at his hand you see a hinge)

Looks like Prime's front wheels end up on his lower back or backside, like the Studio OX model.

That leader Optimus is exciting! Look like a budget Masterpiece figure! :BOWDOWN:

Seems like it begins with Siege Astrotrain, if you ask me.

Anyway, it looks like Leader Optimus may be my son's first "major" Transformers toy. I got him PotP Leader Optimus, but I felt like it was too complicated for him and thus it sits in my closet.

While I'm salty about the new Optimus Prime, Ironworks: oh man, this guy. This fucking guy. See this is the 'new stuff' I wanted to see and it follows in the footstep of giving a robot mode to Brunt. I love his chunky industrial look and the idea of deluxe class 'city bots' is pretty cool.

Lovin the new grapple, I always liked the g1 design of the head-in-a-box, so this is great to see, love the new weaponizers are bases, it's TR all over again, and I can't wait; be interesting to see if the random base builder parts can double as weapons for the bigger figures too Image

So the armageddon name was fake then, interesting. I would have thought we'd get earth at the end of the trilogy but I'm liking what I'm seeing, especially Ironworks, I love that idea and I'm wondering how those parts would look on other figures...

HasTak has been really stepping it up with the articulation.. a lot of these probably have the same articulation as the Shogo Hasui Masterpiece figures.

I hope that there is, at least, a mix between Earth and Cybertronian modes.

kinda just looks like they upscaled and retooled the voyager seige prime. fake cab front that turns into a backpack.

Or a preliminary name that was changed before finalization, like how "Titan Wars" and "Prime Wars" were changed to "Titans Return" and "Power of the Primes", respectively.
