Thanks to Seibertron.com's own commander on deck Seibertron, we have some images showing an up close view of War for Cybertron Siege Springer's box revealing Wheeljack and an outline of what appears to be Sunstreaker! Given Wheeljack's previous losing spot in the fan vote which he shared with Spinister who is now confirmed to be on his way, can this old favorite be that far behind? One might assume he will be in the same deluxe size class as his vote-mate but with fans wondering how his G1 hover-van mode will be pulled off maybe they'll take the opportunity to pull off a few tricks in a Voyager scale. That's just one guess but tell us what you're thinking. This news was also shared with us by fellow Seibertronian Randomhero. Take a peruse and share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums.

Wonder how big Astrotrain will be? Shockwave (Voyager) or Magnus Big?

Is it wrong I'd totally want Siege Wheeljack to wield some bigass cyber-wrentch as a melee weapon to clobber Decepticons with? :lol:

Here’s to hoping Wheeljack’s altmode will look like how he appeared in the first episode of the G1 cartoon.

Me too, it kind of works for trailbreaker but I want a hoist looking hoist. A diaclone black version of iron hide would be okay for me if they really wanted to squeeze another use from the mold.

Spinister just got revealed so high chance that Wheeljack will be on WFC2 line. :CON:

I think that in Wheeljack's case that won't be happening. If it does it will involve shellforming shenanigans.

But I think Wheeljack might be more in line with his original transformation scheme (or that of the Generations toy), with Sunstreaker as a reshell.

Not good enough for me. Trailbreaker AKA my favorite bot needs an original mold, but similarly sized to Ironhide. He needs to have size and presence.

i find it weird, but it is welcome. I may be one of 12 people in the world who liked Rebirth, so I am OK with cartoon faces for all from those episodes.

Isn't it enough that we have to get three exact copies of the same action-figure in order to get the full character?

BTW, anyone got him yet? Any good?

I did! Got 2 of them last week in stores, still trying to get my 3rd.

They are really cool and really fun. As individuals they are great, but I really want to see the camera mode. That is the mode I plan to display them in and use for photos. (haha, puns).

I plan to focus on my new Siege guys next week and the week after for my deskbot shots and thoughts, I'm on the Beast high right now.

I am with you. Wheeljack needs wrenches and such! and he needs a spare wrench so I can give it to Nautica!

Yeah, this being the kind of line that tries to double as vaguely Earth mode-esque, Wheeljack will definitely remain a car. Maybe a much more cubic one with details that call back to his pilot episode altmode but there is no way we're getting that cubic hovercraft thing. Unfortunately.

Exactly. They could pull it off well enough with a Cybertronian robot mode, but because they're using his Earthly robot mode with its rounded windshield chest doing the boxy car mode would take shellforming.

Thanks to site member JTPrime17 we have a heads up on some nice official images of the Transformers Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce! The images come from Twitter member tagoal. Nothing majorly new here but it is some nice crisp images of Covert Clone Sideswipe, Raindance and Grand Slam, and Trenchfoot.

And also via Robotkingdom.com we have some nice clean images of the package, this time without all that pesky glare. Robotkingdom has the item listed at $56.90 but is currently out of stock. They also list the item as was previously reported, the Cybertron Firestormer Pack.

Enjoy the images and share your view with the Seibertron crew in the forums!

I'd love to see some front/hood decal or moldings which reference the front of his Cybertronian mode, as well as a big square spoiler in the back to vaguely evoke his 'floating box mode' even as a car. Or just making him a very square car.

Those Alphastrike guys are gorgeous! Trenchshots colors are really sweet on him, and I am so excited to have a Slamdance. And Sideswipe will look great with some neon reprolabels

What the hell!!?!?

I posted about wheeljack four days ago on the siege thread and was told it’s old news and nothing new.

Guess it just matters who’s running the site on certain nights....

Torn on the alpha strike set, sideswipe needs some paint on his unsightly red bits for alt mode and then it will be great figure. Then slamdance kind of detracts from the uniqueness of the duocons by just being a repaint of them. I like bots having rivals (rewind/eject etc) but seeing as they aren't the duocons rivals or have their own sculpt it does nothing for the cassette based characters.

Every Time I’ve done that in past I’ve never gotten a reply. I’ve even tweeted first sightings on the sites twitter no reply. Nothing.

You didn't catch that? It was from the beginning.

Though, to be fair, I just discovered Sunstreaker on that art as well.



Right here, I said it days ago and was just shot down that is was old news.

I mean you guys live on here. I’ve seen people just post stuff on threads and it gets credited

Well that’s lame and I lost track of that amidst the news of the day. I’m just as responsible as anybody and I apologize. Nothings ever done to sleight anyone deliberately I promise you. Hey, I am truly sorry and I want to say we always appreciate any and all help with news. I think things do get mixed up as humans are apt to do.

To be clear I meant ‘lame’ in sympathy I totally feel your frustration and feel terrible about that. We always value everyone’s input here. I certainly do and if you were here I’d hope we could shake on it. ;)^

This isn't new at all, Wheeljacks been showing up in siege artwork ever since the optimus prime siege poster handed out last year...

And to make it more interesting, I'd wager that drawing of Wheeljack on the poster is the exact same file cut and pasted into a layer for the art on Springer"s box art.

Image


Just like Dazzlestrike on Greenlight's packaging is the exact same art as Lionizer on his.

:lol: Ahhhhh! The wonderful cheats of digital painting!


Edit: Even the poor bot getting blasted on the Prime poster and the Springer box is the same drawing mirrored! :lol:
