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!

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.

- 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.

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?

I dont need another optimus prime...

Grapple is a must get. I love tgat Ironworks matches Omega Supreme. Looks lime he has both the TR and Omega Supreme's connectors

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.

Earth prime... well ne makes siege prime completely redundant....
Ironworks is one of the cleverest updates of a g1 concept....

We also kinda nailed it on Ironworks!
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"

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.

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.ZeroWolf wrote:So the armageddon name was fake then, interesting.
