Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user Turned Agent, has let us know that PrimeVsPrime (fellow Seibertron user and YouTube toy reviewer) has uploaded a review of the recently revealed Deep Cover!

Deep Cover is a predominantly black and blue redeco of the Siege Deluxe Class Sideswipe mould. The colour scheme comes from Takara's pre-transformers line, Diaclone, the same as with other redeco uses of the mould like Tigertrack.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:

Finally got sandstorm! This is my first experience with this mold, and i gotta say, this is definitely a nice mold. While i still prefer siege mold more, this one just feels solid.

The camo deco really works well with this mold, and the shark face is the cherry on top.

Only nitpick i have is i wish the camo deco would extend to that leg area as well, because it just feels empty compared to the rest of the jet, but not a deal breaker.

Robot mode looks good as well. I particularly like the fact that his wings can fold flush against the leg, making him look tidier.

I folded the leg wings flat on my Sandstorm too ;)^ He's a really wonderful Voyager, if I only own one version of the Earthrise Seeker mold I'm glad it's this one
Picked up Rattrap for myself and 86 Grimlock for a friend at Targét last night, man Grimithoy Lockenschpel is a big boy! Hopfully will be able to track another one down soon and experience it for myself!

I can't believe I did this but I went on ahead and ordered Deep Cover through Gamestop and paid for shipping in the hopes they actually ship him this Friday. I was able to use the Honey browser extension to purchase a gift card and then pay with the gift card which saved a couple of bucks so the shipping cost wasn't too much.

That black and blue look really freaking sweet together, looking forward to this guy...

I'm a big fan of the colour scheme as well, i think it looks fantastic in the Siege Sideswipe molud

Kinda wanna get Selects Bugbite, he looks cool. But the question is, if I do, should I give him the tacky purple tribal tattoos or do him up as a little police car?

I think the tribal tattoo look is pretty cool and I wish Selects Bug Bite already came with them.


Gamestop really thinks Deep Cover is shipping Friday...

I wouldn’t worry too much.
They came through w/ my Kingdom Cyclonus, no issues except was 1 day later than expected. But they emailed me about that change.

Not worried at all, just curious since they are a relative newcomer as far as a source for TF's. I refuse to pay for shipping if I don't have to and don't mind waiting, so I'm not ordering from them anyway. I'm getting mine from Pulse since I have premium there and free shipping.

Sandstorm is a great figure, and outside of Redwing and maybe Hotlink, he is my favorite seeker from the WFC trilogy.

Deep Cover looks sweet, glad I scooped one up on preorder.

I got my Super Megatron at last, and he really is super. They went balls out with the retooling and paint, and they did an excellent job with him. Fantastic! Mine will always use the TLK face, that is an awesome thing

Super Megatron is great, good to see someone else getting him! Also a huge improvement over TR Galvatron. Alt modes are perhaps a bit abstract but I like them, they've got a similar toyetic charm to RID Megatron/Gigatron.

As much as the jet mode is supposed to be the primary alt mode, I actually really like the tank mode, that one is my favorite.

His giant ass cannon is also great. I can't really find fault with him at all

Me too! The triple-barrelled tank mode is great.
My one gripe is I wish he had wrist swivels, but that's about it.

Wrist swivels and maybe a peg on his forearm instead of elbow for his cannon, but otherwise, he's fantastic. I love that he has the 2 face, 2 forehead, and 2 chest options. A lot of fun to be had there

I just want to chime in and say Super Megatron is Super Awesome! I have no attachment to the manga he comes from so I almost didn't get him. Very happy I did! He was in jet mode for a while on a flight stand, and now he just stands around looking menacing :lol:

...I just noticed that Deep Cover's product description specifically calls him out as an update based on his eHobby release, not as an update to the Diaclone release that his color scheme came from. If eHobby character updates are not only on the table but are being advertised as such (as opposed to the brief earlier argument that Deep Cover was only/specifically getting made because he's a Diaclone deco), I am once again wondering why no Detritus, Hauler, and/or Tetrajet Sunstorm yet. They've got the perfect molds for it and enough people here have asked for them that the interest/demand for those repaints definitely exists, it seems like a no-brainer.

I'm sure Sunstorm will come eventually. Hopefully with the ER mold, but I'd take the tetrajet one if that's all that's offered.

I can only imagine that they think they can sell Deep Cover more easily. Hopefully they decide to do him and Hauler both.

I know I said it before when I got mine in, but Super Megs is fan-feckintastic. With u guys talking bouts him, I have mine back transforming and playing around. He is my head canon Megatron after Galvatron went in the ice in Headmasters as well. Just very soon after unlike the manga. Starscream and Soundblaster dug him out after Skorponok pissed them off and rebuild him with crazy space tech. Super Megatron takes the TR Galvatron mold and makes it incredible when it was just good(despite the head), improving everything.

Also yes G2 unreleased Sandstorm seeker is awesome. The only conehead earthrise figure I have, so far, and love it. Ever since I seen this deco many years ago, I always wanted a figure of it cause its great looking.
