Thanks to TFW2005 member chuckcjc we have a report of a variant, or painting/assembly accident with Transformers Siege Blackjack. Apparently he found a Hyperdrive Blackjack two-pack where Blackjack is not a remold, but rather a direct repaint of Autobot Swindler. Check out the images below to scope out the difference. Make sure to let us know if you happen to spot any Blackjacks that are in fact Swindler in disguise and maybe we can verify if this is some form of production error or an actual variant. As always share your view with the Seibertron crew in the forums.

Thanks to In Demand Toys on Facebook we have an excellent 180 degree view of the new Transformers Siege Omega Supreme and his Micromaster buddy Countdown. This gives an awesome view of the arms, legs, and torso and all the ratcheting joints in between in robot mode, then an equally great view of his base mode from all around.

Don't forget Omega's currently available at Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store, and The Chosen Prime and is expected this August with a price tag of $159.00.

Take a look and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums!

An excellent update to the original! These Siege figures continue to impress! Cannot wait until August.. thankfully Jetfire will be here on Tuesday to help tide things over :-D

Seeing countdown with omega supreme is cool but it leaves me with questions... based on the assumption this partnership occurred first... was it his apprenticeship? Was he an employee who decided to branch out on his own? Did omega die and countdown went on to build his micro master rocket base to honour him? Was it an attempt to rebuild omega?

Ah well...

Re the toys, looking forward to most of these and though I did thoroughly enjoy TR astrotrain I’ll be picking this astrotrain up too. Wonder if they’ll do some left field repaint of him maybe into galaxy shuttle for the Japanese market or skystalker...

Gotta love the steam locomotive Astrotrain! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:
I dropped some subtle hints to my father about a larger version of the G1 Astrotrain, since he handed the his back to me to keep it from being broken, and he's clearing a shelf to display it with his Lionel trains.

Also, looking at the view of Omega Supreme :shock: that is a big beautiful chunk of plastic engineering. Makes it worth being thirty-ish feet in the air working on siding when that's my reward!
Something to note on Omega, my hubby just ordered mine from Hasbro Pulse, and Hasbro is reporting the release date as October first.

Is it just me or does Astrotrain's shuttle mode have foreskin?

Dude, don’t make him feel weird he’s just uh...European. 100% natural. Heck he sees bullet trains he thinks they’re the weird ones.

Siege Refraktor and Brunt are now available and in stock on Hasbro Pulse.
Re: Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Blackjack Variant Located (2027028)
Posted by Stargrave on July 1st, 2019 @ 10:54am CDT
Thanks to member Death Reviews we have word that Hasbro Pulse has Refraktor and Brunt available for purchase! Anyone looking for that third Refraktor here's your chance!

Take note though there are only two allowed per member through Hasbro Pulse, so assembling your Refraktor camera will still require ordering from another source or some good 'ol fashioned foot work hitting your local brick and mortar.

From Death Reviews:
"My lazy minions inform me that Weaponizer Brunt and Deluxe Refraktor are now available for purchase at "Hasbro Pulse". Unfortunately, the limit is 2 per person, so you can't order all three Refraktors at once! But hurry and get them, if you're having trouble finding them on the shelf!"

Click on any of the images or names above to take you straight there. Happy hunting and as always share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums!

Jetfire is already going for 100 bucks on amazon! I think when mine arrives tomorrow, Imma put it on eBay right away and see if I can get a profit.

This is incorrect, the item limit for Refraktor is 3. I just ordered a full set.

Well damn, that is an unexpected move by Hasbro.

I locked down one and will leave the others for the hunt :BANG_HEAD:

This may be a little pointed, but I think the fan obsession that they're not going to be able to get a set of three Refraktors is completely overblown, and there's no reason to contribute to it further. I know the toy and collectibles industries love to promote scarcity to push people to buy things but ... this is a mass retail release that was only officially released today.

Everyone - cool it.

Has that list been updated?
Is there a thread here on Siebs about this? I've been keeping track over at TFW and I have an up to date list I can share.

Missing any?

Don't think so for Wave 2 and beyond.

Of course we don't :lol:

Well this thread is about Siege so here is what I have (mostly copied from others):

Sideswipe - SUNSTREAKER
Cog - FORTRESSMAXIMUS
Hound - MACCADAMS
Skytread - DUOCON
Optimus Prime - IACON
Megatron - KAON
Ultra Magnus - FORGEOFSOLUS
Shockwave - TARN
Greenlight - LANCER
Chromia - SIIEXXXIITSFAT
Ironhide - TRITHYLLIUM
Sixgun - METROPLEX
Prowl - PRAXUS
Starscream - NULLRAY
Soundwave - LAMPPOST
Jetfire - SKYFIRE
Omega Supreme - CRYSTALCITY
Red Alert - RUNG
Refraktor - REFLECTOR
Brunt - TRYPTICON
Springer - TRIPLECHANGER
Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime - CONVOY

Besides, even if you knew the others the site won't accept them yet. I did get lucky and guessed Springer's code.

Picked up my Brunt! Thank you for the tip, my Trypticon will not go undefended.

Is that just keyboard spam or a misguided attempt to type in Ironhide's accent?
