There is no Legends class in this line because of the Micromasters. But, Bumblebee with his saucer altmode has been alluded to as a possibility for this line, so if we get him, he'll probably be in the Deluxe class somehow. Maybe a tiny Deluxe with a big accessory a la TLK Sqweeks.

Thank you for bringing up casting, as that's the only real way to create the arms as a single piece.

What needs to be kept in mind is that casting 3-dimensional objects with a hollow interior, like an egg, can not be done as everything is a heavy solid chunk: you'd have to separate the halves and cast those. Of course that'd require more molds with drives up the cost for material, plus extra assembly. The hollow arms are a necessary evil here.

Here's the thing, most "hollow" parts aren't entirely hollow (unless they're for hiding hands or whatever), they include extra molded details or cross beams to add structure. This is just a big empty area. Hound does it right:

Image

They also usually place the hollow areas on the inside to help hide them (like above). Since the arms are straight in alt mode they should have been able to pull that off at least. And, I'm not sure, but I think the hollow space in the back is to reduce plastic and cut costs, not part of the transformation. Ironhide just isn't feeling like the more premium figure we were promised. He had better be surprisingly tall.

It's amazing to me how much more dynamic Storm Cloud looks in posing than the others simply because he has elbow joints. I mean they all look good, but posability with these little guys goes up 100% with something that simple.

The pegs for Storm Cloud's hands support Fire Blasts, right? It might be difficult to balance, but that would also allow for some cool display options.

:???: :-?


I'm a bit disappointed by that fact, but then Hasbro spoiled us by giving us two completely new Legends Class figures in POTP with Roadtrap and Battleslash to create Battletrap. Originally both Duocons were comprised of two vehicle alt modes that didn't have individual Con modes, but both vehicles combined to form one Con, just as we're seeing with Siege Skytread. If Hasbro had introduced Battletrap into the POTP Deluxe Class line as just one Con that transforms into two different vehicles, as it was originally in G1, then the reveal of Siege Skytread (Flywheels) wouldn't be an issue. Apparently there's no Legends Class in the WFC line, otherwise we might would've gotten a "Skyspear" and a "Dirt-Tread" that combine to form Skytread.

Considering I'm going to display both my POTP Battletrap and WFC Siege Skytread (Flywheels) in their combined Deluxe Class size Con forms, I'm okay with the way Skytread is.

oh

With Hasbro's recent penchant forco tools pre tools part sharing to minimize costs, it's certainly possible, but grunts turret is also Brent's legs, so simply retooling the turret is not as easy as simply retooling turret

It's not so much retooling as it is switching out parts, as the Weaponizers are, by their very nature, partsformers.

I had mentioned previously that if they did do Slammer out of Brunt then the colors would make him more accurate to the Centurion Droids that the mold is based on.

Image

They could take the opportunity to make the lower legs a little more accurate (not that they're drastically inaccurate or anything), it's not like they can make it look exactly like Slammer's barrel where it's so skinny. They can replace the round part of the turret with something squarer while they're at it.

^I don't know that Scamper needs to be a Deluxe. With Full-Tilt it was a necessity because he's Trypticon's breastplate - make Trypticon bigger and he has to be bigger too.

I don't think a Slammer retool of Brunt would really work. Slammer is a more Earthly tank by a country mile, all tread with no separate is a uniform width along his whole body. I'd embed a picture, but apparently we don't have a G1 Metroplex gallery yet, so have a TFwiki link:
https://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:G1Slammer_toy.jpg

Maybe my fears about the sizes aren't as bad as I'd thought, but then again maybe they are.. I would like some help being sure. Can somebody please photograph Siege Sideswipe with some Cybertron and Prime Wars deluxes, and Siege Optimus with Combiner Wars Optimus? Or at the very least measure them from sole of foot to top of head with a ruler so I can do the comparing myself?

Speaking of measurements, still looking for measurements of Cog's components in vehicle mode if anyone would be so kind as to provide them? Also, curious as to whether his Gasket and Grommet components (the 6-wheeled car and the half-track respectively) can function as Titan Master taxis as-is. I ask this because the original Gasket and Grommet were designed as Headmaster taxis:

Thiiiiisss. This is also why we get exposed hollow thighs - it lets them be cast as a single piece, which is less cost and less effort when cutting the molds (the absolute most expensive part of the manufacturing process bar none). And at least Hasbro has learned to get interesting with hollow thighs by including things like sculpted shocks in the hollow side (just look at Titans Return Hot Rod). Hollows are a price of economical manufacture, and they've been with the line since the start:

Even on that most legendary and cherished of G1 toys. (Also, we apparently don't have a gallery for G1 Jazz either).

And while we're on the subject, behold what I think remain the most severe examples of exposed mold hollows in Transformers history: Cybertron Optimus Prime's calf cannons. Don't think these have been topped yet, and they don't make him any less awesome.

Saucercar (Never forget that's still a car mode - it ends up being crippled by having a wheel shot off) Bumblebee would probably end up needing to be a Deluxe for the sake of the big saucer wings.

Yeah, I've struck out on both checking two different Targets here in Maine since Friday (Portland and Augusta). Really want to get my hands on some Siege figures even though I still have a few PotP guys to pick up.

Anyone remember, not long ago, when Hasbro ended Transformers Animated, both the TV show and the toy line? They said it was to clear the way for the next live action movie. They claimed that customers and fans would get 'confused' if there were two different lines of Transformer figures on shelves at the same time.

So.... what happened to that excuse?

How many Transformers lines are there on store shelves now? We got the last of Power of the Primes. We've got the new Bumblebee movie figures. We got the "Studio Series" figures. We've got G1 re-issues. We've got the entire "Cyberverse" line. We've still got the Rescue line, and we've also got "Botbots". And now Siege is turning up in stores. All on the shelves. All at the same time.

Sure seems that somewhere over time, Hasbro got over thinking that customers would get all 'confused' if there were multiple figure lines on the shelves. Not that I'm complaining about the current wealth of choices, but I'm still resentful that they cancelled TFA, one of their best shows/figure lines ever, by using a cheesy excuse that they seem to be utterly ignoring now.

Those movies have now elevated that brand to a household name unlike ever before. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are now as known as Batman, Spider-man, Mario and Darth Vader. So now the idea is to keep having product all shelves all the time. The marketting mandate has gone a full 180.

John Warden is not the brand manager, he is the design manager for the movie and generations lines. The marketting mandate I wrote of above is at a higher level than him.

Guess what! I decided to try another Target that I don't frequent often on my way home from work (going just a bit out of my way to do so by taking an alternate route). The gambit paid off, though! No, I didn't find any trace of Siege, but I did finally find Optimal Optimus! :D

I tried Brickseek for the first time, using the Target DPCI codes for WfC: Siege that have been posted here in the past few weeks. All of the Target stores in the Twin Cities list each figure from Wave 1 as "Out of Stock." If I'm right, that doesn't mean these stores have ever actually had any Siege products "In Stock" as of yet, but the fact that they are showing up in the inventory tracker now may mean they will be getting them very soon, or are at least ready to receive them any time now.

I'm not sure sure. I found the Battle masters today (Chicago area) at a Target that showed them out of stock on Brickseek. Had to be a full case. They were on the same pegs as Octopunch, Bomb Burst and Bludgeon.

If it's anything like the GI Joe films, it was more like Paramount telling Hasbro there can't be any confusion. Remember folks missed out on getting Human Alliance Soundwave easily because Paramount insisted it be released as a late wave figure. Food for thought, we have multiple lines on the shelves at the same time as movie figures and for the last two lines, later waves didn't make it to main retail shelves in some cases. Also, some stores won't stock non-movie figures too.

There are a lot of factors that go into the cancellation of animated series, so I wouldn't get too hung up on trying to parse old interviews to Frankenstein a narrative to explain it. Most children's animated tv has a lifecycle of approximately three years because the audience ages out of the target demographic, and the hope is that a new show will capture the new audience. Prime, RiD, Cyberverse have all had fit into that same cycle.

More on topic, Hasbro clearly intends to keep multiple product lines targeting multiple audiences across many brands and licenses. This isn't specific to TF: I consider Generations as a comparable product to Marvel Legends and Star Wars: the Black Series. That trend of higher quality toys ideal for the collector market largely post-dates TFA, so the excuse at the time still could have been valid then.

Can anyone actually confirm the DCPIs showing in stock at all? I've checked in zip codes where sightings are taking place, and everything shows out of stock. Supposed group DCPIs that Target normally use are just giving me "no results found".

I'll answer my own question with a confirmation. Just picked up the full assortments of Battle Masters and Micromasters at the Mount Laurel, NJ Target. They do not show as in stock on Brickseek, but if you ask an associate to run the DCPIs, they'll show up. No other size classes were available at the time.

Just an aside since it's been brought up; Classics Sideswipe drew more from the Alternators design than G1, whereas Siege Sideswipe draws heavily from G1, almost to the point of being a $20 Masterpiece

Which makes it even worse that he's an apparent midget, IMO. I say apparent because I could potentially be misjudging the size comparisons.

If someone could please be arsed to photograph him amongst Titans Return and Unicron Trilogy deluxes, or even just measure his height with a ruler, that would be very helpful. Or did you all sacrifice your ability to use rulers to get the blessing for comments on your threads? </insane sleep-deprivation-induced speculation>

I haven't seen that pic as such, but I have seen Seibertron do the same comparison here. That's kinda why I'm disappointed and concerned to begin with. :roll: However, and I feel I must stress this point:

UNIVERSE SIDESWIPE IS NOT A TITANS RETURN OR UNICRON TRILOGY DELUXE!

And those are what I asked for comparisons with. I don't need to see him compared with Universe Sideswipe because that's what caused the concern in the first place. What I do need to see is him compared with the likes of Cybertron Override and Titans Return Hot Rod. Or even just for someone to take a ruler - this flat bar thing usually a little over a foot long minimum, generally an inch or so wide and marked off in inches on one side and centimeters on the other - and measure SIEGE Sideswipe's height so that I can do the comparing myself.

Couldn't you use universe Sideswipe yourself to check height if you know where Siege Sideswipe stands? Plus if Sideswipe was too small for you, shouldn't ever other Siege Character be too small since they are all set to scale?

Like there are separate product codes for denoting general assortments like Battle Master, Deluxe and the like, there are separate DPCI's for them. It's to keep track of overall stock for reordering purposes.

I realize that comment about rulers was needlessly patronizing... I'm just frustrated by the fact that it seems like whenever I ask for measurements on this site it feels like people ignore the request as if I'd asked them to do something ridiculous like give me a thousand dollars in exchange for nothing.

ZeroWolf wrote:Couldn't you use universe Sideswipe yourself to check height if you know where Siege Sideswipe stands? Plus if Sideswipe was too small for you, shouldn't ever other Siege Character be too small since they are all set to scale?

I suppose that's a fair point about comparing others to the Universe Sideswipe mold's armpit height, since I do have Generations Red Alert. However, that doesn't help me with comparing Siege Optimus to Combiner Wars Optimus or measuring Gasket and Grommet. And I also don't 100% trust photos on this since they can have optical illusions that exaggerate or minimize the actual difference in height.. (Granted, not as likely in straight-on photos, but it can happen).

As for "shouldn't every other Siege character be too small"...
First off, no. Skytread is the same height as Battletrap so he's good, and the Weaponizers being the height they are also works, particularly for Cog. Ultra Magnus would seem to be, though, if I'm remembering the height right (eight inches).
Second, I'm trying to confirm whether or not the others are actually as "too small" as I originally thought based on the Sideswipe and Optimus comparisons. That's why I want to compare Siege Sideswipe with non-Siege Deluxes that aren't Universe Sideswipe, and Siege Optimus to Combiner Wars Optimus (who Seibertron annoyingly left out of his little comparison lineup). I'm trying to thoroughly test my impression to make sure I'm not off the mark.

EDIT:
Did the comparison with Red Alert. Sadly, it seems my impression was right... The Siege Autobot Cars are good designs spoilt by being manufactured 15-20% too small... I was so excited for them too... :( :-(

Excitement around the Transformers War for Cybertron SIEGE toy line continues to ramp up as the November 25th street date at Target stores nears closer!

Last week, we wrapped up our galleries of Battle Masters, Micromasters, Deluxe Class Cog, Hound, Sideswipe and Skytread, as well as Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Megatron. We also provided all of you with a series of video reviews from other YouTube users.

Now, we proudly present our very own set of YouTube video reviews from Seibertron.com itself. This set includes all four of the War for Cybertron SIEGE Deluxe Class action figures, which was preceded by our video of the Voyager Class figures.

Be sure to share your thoughts of the War for Cybertron SIEGE figures on our forums.




War for Cybertron SIEGE WFC-S7 Deluxe Class Sideswipe


War for Cybertron SIEGE WFC-S8 Deluxe Class Cog


War for Cybertron SIEGE WFC-S9 Deluxe Class Hound


War for Cybertron SIEGE WFC-S10 Deluxe Class Skytread

I added some new pictures to the Optimus Prime gallery just for you. Does this answer your question in regards to a comparison between Combiner Wars Optimus Prime and Siege Optimus Prime? Just for kicks, I also added AOE Voyager Class Evasion Mode Optimus Prime as well. Hope this helps clarify his size for you and anyone else wondering!

Personally, I was never a fan of Combiner Wars Optimus Prime because he doesn't really meet my requirements for what a G1 Optimus Prime toy should look like.

Yes it does, thank you very much for taking the trouble to do this.

I'm sorry to say that it looks like I'll be passing on him... He's a really, really cool design, but...

Thanks for the Siege Deluxe Class reviews, Seibertron. I've seen quite a few different reviewers' takes on these same figures now, and it's interesting to see which figures are a particular reviewer's favorites. There's not a lot of consensus on which ones are the best (or the most flawed), which makes me believe there is something to really love about each of these figures.

I too am a little disappointed that we're not getting more of these blaster effects than what little comes with each of the Battle Master figures. My hope is that for SDCC next year, or through some other premium outlet, we get a big set of different effects parts, done in all sorts of colors, so we can create some massive battle scenes for our Siege figures without having to buy multiple copies of the Battle Masters. Honestly, Hasbro would be fools not to do something like this. They'd sell like hotcakes.

A good figure is a good figure no matter the size. The problem with some of the early Generations figures was that they were both smaller and simpler, but these are just as complex as anything we've seen before, maybe even more so, despite the smaller size. I think as we see more figures show up in WfC and the new scale comes together we're going to see more interest these wave 1 figures.
