The Facebook page for In Demand Toys has been updated with images revealing both the Skywarp Battlepack and the Firestorm Battlepack from the Siege line. These are all exclusives, like Greenlight, which is also shown. The Firestorm pack includes a black redeco of Siege Sideswipe which sacrifices his G2 symbol for a Battle Master, along with Slamdance who is a reuse of Flywheels. Skywarp comes with his own squad of Battle Master redecos. From previous listings we know that both of these sets are priced at the leader class price point. From what we know of Greenlight, these will probably be Amazon exclusives in the US, though that is still to be confirmed.

Enjoy and tell us what you think!

Does anyone with a good memory know off hand if these targetmasters match up with any vintage ones we are 'missing' in the current lineup?

Skywarp looks DOPE. Obviously excited to finish Oritha(sp?) combiner (insert Chromia/Lancer complaint).

I haven't and still don't really care about G2 Sideswipe. Slam Dance makes sense, but I wish they would commit to the cassettes.

I NEED to know whom the Battle Masters are.

The black and grey one with skywarp might be Kup’s targetmaster but I’m not 100% positive.

It's nice to see Slam Dance back, even if not in cassette form.

G2 Sideswipe instead is quite pointless, unless it is meant to represent a new character sharing its deco (something that I previously read referred to Soundblaster).

I'm curious about the Targetmasters, although Skywarp alone would justify getting them.

Same colors (sans arms but that’s probably due to the limbs being gang molded), double-barreled cannon mode, and a complete lack of an official name yet doesn’t completely rule him out from being recoil. I’m not sure if they’d actually use the name but he fits the bill.

Skywarp looks amazing, and I'm totally sold on the Slamdance and Sideswipe pack now despite not caring for it before. I wonder when these will be released?

Once again a Seeker mold that looks great, but won't be getting for Starscream. Love the look of Skywarp and Thundercracker, but Starscream's colors and the battle damage looks too off putting to me. I'm probably gonna just pick TC and SW up and wait to see what the rumored Redwing will look like if it happens. But I'm loving the look of these sets though, though I'm a little disappointed with Sideswipe's lack of spiked tires :lol:

I guess in my "personal continuity" G2 Sideswipe would have to be a different character. Lambo? Spinout? Fish-Tail?

I'm loving Skywarp here, and Slamdance means more fun options for Flywheels and BattleTrap to play around with (in terms of swapping trousers)

O get that they've already got the molds but Slamdance being upside down still bugs me... I'd love to see new cassettes of these guys as the originals were my first cassettes... the g1 cassettes in general are just perfect

Why can't they make jets look like jets anymore?! Both Raindance and Skywarp have horrible blocky growths under them that make them look about as aerodynamic as a brick. How is it that the "updates" have worse jet modes than the originals?!

His G2 toy had a G1 symbol on it, so I'm pretty sure he didn't sacrifice anything for it. Maybe some decals though, but yeah.

Don't worry about it though, I didn't know about it till I looked at the original toy ;)

TFWiki lists Slamdance as a redeco of Skytread, but he is definitely sporting a new head. I was worried they would cheap out, but Hasbro pulled through on this one. :D

I'm confused, even greenlight will be $50? By the way I did some quick math and the Skywarp and Sideswipe sets come out to around $45 USD, looks like the extra few bucks are for the privilege of being able to buy official Hasbro product. I'm really disappointed with Slamdance as I would've hoped we would've gotten the proper weapons.

I hope not. In the past 2 years when Deluxes figures came with a *little something extra* (thinking TR Arcee, Grotusque & last years Punch, Blast off, and Repugnus) they were between $25 and $30, I would expect/hope Greenlight, Lancer and the other Deluxes to be around the $30 US Price Point (20 dollar deluxe plus 6 dollar Battle Master plus a small markup for packaging and exclusivity)

Skywarp having 3 battle Masters would normally retail for 30 + 6x3(18) So $48.... Meaning $50.00 would not be a bad price at all for everything included.

Spinout is already taken, he's the red redeco of Sunstreaker. And a Chef... Who got promoted to a field commander... Because the Cons ripped tjrough everyone else above the chain of command.

Okay, well, not the Slamdance I've been hoping for, but it's nice to see that someone remembered him, and that he's not just a redeco. Also, is it me or does it seem like whenever one of the original three Seekers is made an exclusive of some sort it's always Skywarp?
