Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Nemesis Primal and Lord Gigatron for pointing our attention to another video review by TonTon Reviews, who often reviews figures that haven't been released anywhere, and this one is no exception. He takes a look at the upcoming figure of Brunt, from Wave 3 of the Siege line, the first Decepticon Weaponizer in the toyline. TonTon shows off several size comparisons for Trypticon's (former?) drone in both robot and tank mode, as well as how he splits apart to gear up other 'bots.



Those hoping for a bruiser of a 'bot, like Ironhide, will likely be disappointed- Brunt is barely taller than Prowl. Given that this is the first time he's ever had a robot mode (though his tank mode is fairly faithful to his G1 toy), and the fact that he adds to the Decepticon ranks, this is likely something that can be overlooked. Brunt should be showing up in Wave 3, along with his wavemates, Reflector Refraktor and Red Alert, sometimes in late June or early July.

Let us know what you think of the first look at Brunt's first toy in 32 years, and comment down below with your thoughts!

I could have used a sex metaphor to describe the micromasters reveal: that they blew the load early. :SICK:

Yes. I.... I do believe that is the movie version of the Decepticon Symbol that was also present on Starscream.

Unexpected consistency...

What is the big deal with movie vs classic symbols? It took me until 2014 to learn there was a difference, and even then, it is so subtle and hardly a thing to be concerned with.


I used to not be able to tell and thought super fans were being way too scrutinizing and I’d be chastised were my secret ever revealed...then one day I saw it, and now I can’t unsee it, and the eyes are funky why the hell did they change it in the first place.

It looks like the G1 symbols slightly chunkier slightly tired uncle.

Yeah, one of my local Walmarts restocked with Deluxe wave 1, enough to fill the pegs. Both stores have been restocking wave 1 of everything else pretty regularly, but Deluxe had moved on to wave 2 a while ago.

Good eye! That does seem to be the case. I hope they fix that on release. What I do like about these two is they both look like they'd form acceptable guns on their own, especially Powertrain.

Good morning and happy Friday fellow Seibertronians! Your laughable Swerve wannabe here - I was tooling around looking for news and noticed Optibotimus on YouTube posted a review for Siege Jetfire a few days ago. I figured if anybody had eyes on this bad boy you might want to give it a view. Share your thoughts below and let everyone know if seeing it in action has made you waver on our beloved first Autobot of the air!

*I'm obviously still not an ace at posting youtube links sorry about that gang I appreciate everyone's patience :-D I wanted to post it like the Brunt review with that big beautiful image/link. I'll get there!*

Sorry bud, but since Optibotimus has requested we not news his videos, even if they are early release. I learned that the hard way :oops:

Now, if Emgo posts one, feel free to share it here ;)

Guys, you can still post anything related on the boards. No one will and should stop you. With Optibotimus though, we wouldnt front page it, since he asked us not to. But that's only something for news staff to worry about, anyone can post his reviews on the forum.

The reason we wouldn't news this regardless is because we already posted a video review on jetfire a while ago.


Also, if you guys want to better post the videos, just use the last bit at the end of the youtube links that has a wierd code. In the case of the jetfire review, its: 9WPFUSO8SOI

then wrap it around with the youtube button we have above ""

that would give you this:

Excellent to know! I was wondering about little details with other creators/reviewers you just never know, until you know, which is what Seibertron is for, you know?

Ok so I was doing it correctly the preview pane must just not have been displaying it like I wanted it to look. Ok perfect. You'd shown me that once before I hate asking again thank you.

Hey thanks everyone for the feedback! :D
Till all are one dudes and dudettes.

I don't know if this is old news but I just saw the Hobbylink Japan newsletter on the Fwoosh mention that Thundercracker's "knee joints have been redesigned for better flexion for a wider range of poses!"
I'm curious to see what the difference is since Star Scream seems pretty good in that department.

They have been known for translating errors that brought hope to fans before. So i would just wait to see if there is anything different at all.

Fellow Seibertron user, Riley Hoffman, has let us know that YouTuber TonTon Reviews has uploaded a new video review of upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Deluxe Class figure, Reflector/Refracktor! The review covers all the basics and shows off the camera mode that is made by combining three Reflector/Refracktor figures!

Check out the video below, which we have embedded for your convenience.



What do you think of this review? Are you planning on tracking down three of this mold, to make a camera for your display shelves? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Ahhh, so that's how the chests work: the lens on Viewfinder (the middle guy) detaches and is used for the base of the tripod!

Maaaaan, he looks awesome. Such great colors I mean of course you’re going to want three of these staring back at you on the shelf. And JelZe you said you had a family member who was a photographer right? So you’re all over this guy I bet. I love him. Dang.

My dad was a recreational photographer back when I was little, mainly family pictures and natural scenery. He had an old-style photo camera, same style as G1 Reflector, even with switch-out lenses. He had a knack for it. :D

I don't see that happening, really. We already had a proper Perceptor back in Titans Return. :)

Not that that really means anything considering how quickly the popular characters get remade. This line is supposed to go three years with different sub names, right? They just did Jazz in Power of the Primes, so no Jazz in WFC? Is that really how it works? Wasn't that long ago Prowl, Ironhide and Mirage (and others) got made in Combiner Wars. Wasn't Chromia from Titans Return?

Anyway, my point is probably more that this toy could easily be retooled into a pre-earth Perceptor moreso than whether they'll actually do it.

Chromia was Thrilling 30, before getting her Siege figure, but is based on the PotP Moonracer engineering.

T30, actually. The Titans Return ones were Windblade and Arcee :)

I don't really see any resemblance between Perceptor and Viewfinder honestly, aside from the chest window. But I suppose stranger things have happened, like TR Alpha Trion into Broadside.
