Thanks to posts on Takara Tomy's Twitter account (which we were pointed towards by Seibertronian -WonkoTheSane-) we have two pieces of related news to share. First is a group shot of all the Wave 2 figures in the Siege Netflix line. This gives us a good look at Elita One-1 and Bumblebee, who, along with Soundwave, are the only heavily retooled figures in the line. Wonko has provided a translation of the accompanying Japanese text, which states that preorders for these figures should go up in Japan by the end of the month.

It's a new one, presumably a Decepticon of some variety judging by the packaging sporting the logo.


Many are thinking it will be Shockwave. It is the "logical" option. ;) And he did show up in the trailers. What will be interesting is what else is in the box if it is indeed Shockwave. If it is largely a repack of Siege Shockwave, it will be a hard pass just like Magnus was for me. I even had the opportunity to pick him up at $35 and didn't do it.

Give it a little time ... someone will have an advance of the figure and will spill the beans.

Same...
I had Magnus (for $35), Netflix Megatron (for $39) and Decpeticon Mirage all in my shopping cart a few weeks back... Got halfway across the store, changed my mind, turned around and put all of them back.
I don't see any accessories or paint apps making this worth it.

Good news for the Centurion Drone/weapons pack. Hopefully this means I can get it more affordably than from Pulse with their ridiculous shipping costs to Canada.

Too bad Bumblebee is for the Netflix line and therefore Walmart exclusive in North America, but at least the slot he'd take up I'm Earthrise can go to someone else.

I wonder if it's going to be easier to buy the Centurion set from Japan then finding him in Canada? :-?

I thought Centurion was a pulse exclusive besides it's Japan release and thus not even coming to stores?

You're probably right. So yes, it will be easier to get it from Japan curiosly enough. Shipping costs are disgusting at Hasbro pulse.

Canada-to-US shipping costs are likewise excessive. I suspect there's deliberate two-way obstructionism going on there, to discourage consumers in either country from buying goods from the immediately-neighboring one.

Exclusives are only limited to the specific nation. Since Canada doesnt have Pulse, other stores can get their exclusives. Like for the G1 dino casette pack, it was Amazon that got it.

Centurion could be coming to Canada, we just don't which exclusive retailer will sell it.

Well, I went out on a limb (for my collecting habits) and picked up Hotlink this evening...
While I really like the look of both modes, I'm a bit on the fence, especially considering this was $40 I wasn't planning on spending. I'm leaning towards keeping him, but haven't opened him because I'm not totally sure yet.
Any thoughts or advice on whether I should take him back or not?

Depends on how well he fits into your collection and if you get enjoyment out of that seeker mold. Personally, I think he's a good looking figure, but I don't collect the seekers except for the OG 3, so I never got him for myself. I did pick him up for someone else and kept Heatstroke and Heartburn as the payment for my troubles, and I like them. But unless you like the seeker mold or you're a completionist, he's not high priority. I will say that I have seen group shots of all 8 Siege seekers together, and it's a sweet looking display. Some others also use Hotlink as Skywarp because he's so ridiculously expensive now, but you'd have to get past the color differences. If you're not a stickler for perfect accuracy, it works, especially in jet mode.

Makes sense... I may end up keeping him just because he'll be the only Siege seeker I have.
While I kinda wish he wasn't purple and as similar to Skywarp, I dig the color scheme, especially for a Decepticon. I'm not crazy about the Siege paint apps with "damage"; the fades, the gradations, splatters, etc., but I think in this case it's pretty well done. Definitely could be worse.
I wouldn't use or see him as a Skywarp replacement, and don't care to have a full Cybertronian seeker fleet anyway. I'll get all 6 seekers from ER and be really happy with that.
He'd be the one Netflix figure, and one of four from the Siege line that I have (although I almost don't consider 35th Anniversary cell-animated Prime and Megatron Siege figures)...
I don't see this being worth $40, which is a big, big factor for me, but other than SoundBlaster, this is one of the Siege figures that I like the most based on looks.

For those who did not watch the show, we will reveal the biggest spoiler of the series before moving on, so you have been warned.

The infamous $50 Walmart exclusive Spoiler Pack had the words "spoilers inside" that referred to the Netflix series we had not seen yet and Hasbro had advised we only open it after watching the Netflix show. Now I see that the advice was sound. Not because it meant that we would spoil ourselves (which is probably what they meant) but because it would only make sense once we watched the show.

In the show, Ultra Magnus dies. It is a rather brutal death at the hands of Megatron and is what makes Jetfire switch sides.

Now that we know this, the toy's deco makes much more sense. For those who do not have the spoiler pack Ultra Magnus, the toy is made up of a lot of grey plastic with colour sprayed on. Many found the deco underwhelming as it didn't really look like battle damage. That's because it is not. It is Ultra Magnus having just been killed and his colour fading, making him become grey, just as Prime did in the original 86 film. Below is an image of the toy and you will see how that interpretation makes far more sense than anything else. The inclusion of rung, along with that pink colour scheme remains unexplained.

This seems very 2020, first a dead leader OP and now a dead leader UM.

I wonder if this revelation will make the figure more desirable.

I think so. The figure now means something at least.

The inclusion of Rung in the spoiler pack just hit me.

He's the Alpha Trion protocols, or more specifically he's holographic representation of Alpha Trion bumblebee sees with the protocols.

It's really the only thing that makes sense, as Rung couldn't be anything else that I can think of.

The question becomes what of the second spoiler leader figure?
Re: Transformers War for Cybertron: Netflix Wave 2 and Centurion Drone Pack to be Released in Japan (2074640)
Posted by StaceyK93 on August 2nd, 2020 @ 3:04pm CDT
I think rung is corrupted from Shockwaves virus and his effect pieces is it spreading

Of course, I think killing Ultra Magnus is the worst thing about the show, but they also killed Skywarp. While Ultra Magnus will live on on my shelf (that's what head canon is for), I just find some of the choices strange. Oddly, not Ultra Magnus so much, but definitely Skywarp.

Anyway, I enjoyed it overall. I did get to make a joke out of the spoiler, though. I knew what it was, but didn't tell.

The next spoiler pack should maybe get a little more credit once it hits.
