Thanks to Youtube user laurent qy, who attended the Paris Comic Con where we saw several Studio Series reveals, it appears as though Studio Series wasn't the only line getting some attention and potential reveals. laurent qy managed to take a video of a new War for Cybertron: Siege trailer, and it appears as though there may have been a tease for a rumored new figure for the line. At the 0:06 mark of the trailer, there is a shot of some Decepticons including Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, and a 4th figure that looks a lot like Prowl, but is a Decepticon.

While we cannot confirm it just yet, it would appear as though this new mystery figure may indeed be the rumored Siege Barricade figure, a figure that showed up in an Amazon listing for the price of a deluxe class figure. While it was speculated that this could be a mislabeled Studio Series Barricade, which has been revealed in full, it was mostly believed that this was a redecoed Prowl figure with a new Barricade-esque head. And that appears as though it may be the case!

Check out the video below, including a still of the shot, and let us know what you think of this potential reveal in the comments section below!

Looks like he'll be a redeco of Prowl with a new head. Sounds good to me.

I'm definitely going to have to get that, since it means I can justify no longer seeking the TFCC version.

I figured this was going to be the case from when we first got a hint that a Deluxe Barricade would be in the Siege line. Now, I'm a lot less hopefull that we'll see a Bluestreak or Smokescreen redeco/retool of Siege Prowl if Barricade is going to be a reuse of the mold.

...meh, first impressions aren't great. I was hoping for more of a figure based on his evergreen design than just a Prowl repaint. Maybe my opinion will change when we get to actually see the figure, as this isn't a very good look at the design other than just the body type/mold, but so far this doesn't make me want to buy this over SS Barry.

A G1 inspired (Movie) Barricade was always destined to be a black Prowl.

What do you see as his 'evergreen' look to be?

the Micromaster is very much a separate character.

That is evergreen Barricade.

Barricade will probably be a straight redeco of Prowl, maybe we'll get a slight retool into Bluestreak / Smokescreen. I would think they would be in high demand. Prime Wars had retools across the entire trilogy, and they're more cost-effective, so even if we don't get them in 2019, I can't imagine we won't see them before the end of WfC.

@ Sabrblade yeah I was thinking that I wasn't sure if evergreen had been confused with 'vintage look' :lol:

I can only guess ole Barricade is still finding his 'G1' look

We're getting so very close to the release of Siege. I estimate we're between three and six weeks out from seeing these figures popping up at U.S. retail. Since we have a pretty much complete picture of what will be offered in Wave 1, it's time to speculate a bit about what will be coming later, and how much we'll get in total.

I'm going to start with taking a look at the Micro Masters. We know of five teams or two-packs so far, three in Wave 1, and two in Wave 2. For the Autobots, we have Roadhandler & Swindler, Big Shot & Flak, and Steakout & Red Hot, corresponding to the classic G1 Race Car, Battle, and Rescue Patrols. For the Decepticons, we have Storm Cloud & Whisper from the classic G1 Air Strike Patrol as well as a "Soundwave Spy Patrol" consisting of Laserbeak & Ravage. Who else can we expect at this point?

The Micro Masters are replacing the "Legends" price point for now. The only recent line with a year-long release schedule is the Power of the Primes. PotP gave us nine different Legends Class releases, although one of those was simply a reissue from Thrilling 30 with a tweaked paint job (and a missing accessory). So, that's eight entirely new figures, strictly speaking.

If we get about nine Micro Master teams in all for Siege, that leaves about four more to be revealed. Three if we're going by a cap of eight, as described above. We also know from Hasbro that missing members of the G1 Micro Master teams will not be included in other two-packs, so characters like Tailspin, Free Wheeler, Seawatch, Fixit, Sidetrack, Sunrunner, Night Flight, and Tailwind are likely off the table (for now). I think that the most likely candidates are members from the remaining G1 1989 Micromaster Patrols. There's one more of each for the Autobots and the Decepticons, the Off Road Patrol (any two of Highjump, Mudslinger, Powertrain, and Tote) and the Sports Car Patrol (any two of Detour, Blackjack, Hyperdrive, and Road Hugger). That leaves one or two more spots open. We could possibly see some 1990 Micro Master Patrols, but I would like to think chances are good we'll get instead two more "Soundwave Spy Patrols." A couple of two-packs like "Frumble" & Buzzsaw and "Renzy" & Ratbat would make everyone happy, giving us a "complete" set of the most famous of Soundwave's minions. If it turns out we only get one more for a total of eight, then it might be just Buzzsaw & Ratbat. That makes the most sense to me in that case, as it would be a simple repaint and possibly a retool, instead of a completely new tooling repeated twice in the same two-pack, as Rumble and Frenzy would be.

We could also see Micromaster combiners. All of the Micromasters shown so far had the ability to connect to each other for weapons. They didn't show up until 1990, though I would be surprised to have Micromasters two years in a row.

Some combination of Frenzy, Rumble, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Wingthing seems like a safe bet for a second or third spy pack.

Nope, I meant evergreen, but I don't blame you for asking/checking. I would prefer Barricade having his own identity with his riot gear helmet and arm tasers and such much more than him being retroactively made into a kinda lazy Prowl repaint/retool. Granted, we haven't actually seen the Prowl figure yet, but I think at this point it's safe to assume he'll just be hyper-accurate to G1 with a maybe stylized car mode like Sideswipe given the poster art and the overall theme of the line, in which case I'm probably going to pass on it as Prowl and be disappointed that Barricade just got relegated to being a black repaint of it unless something about it REALLY surprises me.

Also shout-out to Sabr for answering the question before I woke up, timezones ARE good for something.

yeah it's a shame but it seems so easy for Hasbro to do black repaints of every Optimus Prime in nearly all modern toylines newly with Rodimus/Unicronus and now Prowl/Barricade.

Below we have images from the facebook recording (as well as the recording itself) of the Italy Lucca Comics and Games, recorded by Guerrestellari.net. The Transformers panel was up earlier, revealing War for Cybertron Trilogy: Siege Deluxe Class Prowl, Sixgun, and finally a Battle Master, Pteraxadon. Please click below, to see! While there is a lot of old stuff, the new stuff is exciting to see! Hopefully, we'll cover our coverage of the event more, so stay tuned!

All we need now is FastTrack for the next wave
Glad to see Sixgun in Jet Mode.
Hope he's compatible with Metroplex. :BOT: :CON: :x

looks like another buy lol... and yeah I'm curious to see if he'd be able to power up metroplex...

seems like hasbro is dedicating more energy to regional shows round Europe, maybe they're trying to improve their network and distribution (one can only hope)
