Fans were quaking in their boots for War for Cybertron: Siege Titan Class Omega Supreme coming out in August 2019, however, it seems that there may be a potential delay for the set of the year.

Transformers News: WFC Siege Titan Class Omega Supreme and Thundercracker potentially delayed to October

Hasbro Pulse has the release date set for October 1st, Amazon has it for October 4th, but, Big Bad Toy Store still has Omega Supreme slated for August 2019. It's hard to exactly pinpoint what this could be due to, but hopefully, more details will stroll in during San Diego Comic-Con.

Transformers News: WFC Siege Titan Class Omega Supreme and Thundercracker potentially delayed to October

The madness continues for Siege Voyager Class Thundercracker, who on Hasbro Pulse awaits release on October 1st, and on Target on October 6th. Meanwhile, Amazon has him set for August 1st, and Big Bad Toy Store is set to release in July.

What is your take on this madness? Let us know, as well as if you're disappointed, in the Pub forums below.

I’m sure there’s some people who’ll be disappointed, but I’m personally okay with this. While I’m not sure for the reasoning behind this, particularly with Thundercracker, having a larger buffer between big ticket items like Jetfire and Omega Supreme is preferable for me. It lets my wallet breathe just a little.

How come Amazon hasn't shipped my Siege Skyfire yet? He was released yesterday and the page now says "Temporarily out of stock." What's the point of pre-order then? Does it have to do with the different shipping speeds? (He hasn't been shipped at all yet.)

They probably oversold pre-orders like they did with Punch-Counterpunch

Yeah, I talked with customer service. They’re sold out and they don’t know when they get them back in stock.

Just sent a message, too. Pre-ordred this back in February. This isn't the first time it happened. They should at least send an e-mail saying that they're out or that it's late.

All of these look at the very least decent, but I am baffled by the decision to make the bumper and forearms of Crosshairs silver. They both are innacurate to the original design despite basically everything else being accurate, and break up the color flow. (Moreso on the arms.)

We may be the only two. I really like them and they are the only figures in that mold I'm keeping. If new ones were released they'd have to be pretty **** good for me to jump.
I, too, also like CW Huffer and Pipes as well.

Ask and you shall receive. Here is one with the 2 of them, and another with an assortment.

Do you have any of the following other figures with whom you could also do size comparisons with Commander class Jetfire?

1988 God Ginrai (or any of its reissues)
Car Robots God Fire Convoy/RiD 2001 Omega Prime
Armada Optimus Prime in his Super Mode
Armada Tidal Wave

From the above images, Jetfire looks to be a smidge taller than that CW Bruticus.


Sorry Sabr, I don't have any of those, but you are correct, he is just a smidge taller than Bruticus and the other CW combiners.

Don't sweat it, lock in a pre-order and they'll get here when they get here.

I'm glad I already pre-ordered, but Jeebus this thing is taking forever. Here I am, counting down the days until August and now it's delayed another 2 whole months? It's frustrating, but I've been waiting for an Omega Supreme of my own since 1985, so I guess I can tolerate it. :-x

Honestly, as Omega Supreme IS my favorite character, and the Siege version looks quite awesome, I can appreciate waiting a bit longer. Besides, I'm still trying to knock out some older, pricier TT Legends items, so I'm perfectly fine with the delay. The only downside is that this will probably mean that holiday sales will be much less likely since he will have only been out for a couple months by that time.

As for the dates, I'd put much more stock in Hasbro/Amazon etc... BBTS doesn't really update their release dates until they have to. Once August is over, and the figure hasn't been released THEN they'll change the release date to September,THEN October etc...

Is Skyfire delayed everywhere? The status on TFsource & BBTS still says "pre-order."

His status at Hasbro Pulse just went to sold out as well a few minutes ago. Something's up :-?

I wonder if they under anticipated demand? I guess people are willing to pay more for nicer stuff :roll:

I think those 3P sites have just been getting them later now that more official retailers such as HP and Amazon are getting them. (BBTS would bet them before B&M, but Jetfire is only available online as far as I know so...)

One Question though....Did anyone who just went to Amazon and purchased him on Monday get him already? Because if so...that's kind of messed up if they sent out orders immediately showing it's in stock, while someone who pre-ordered months ago didn't get theirs.

So he's not delayed. Was just released on Monday July 1, (on HP and Amazon) and seems to have sold out quite quickly. More stock will come in time however I'm sure

Thanks so much for that! I got notice that my Siege Jetfire is shipping from Hasbro Pulse just this morning. Unfortunately, I probably will have to rearrange my display shelves to fit him in where I had the T30 version. That one just barely fits because I rotated the booster pack around 180 degrees to shorten the "backpack" and just barely make the clearance on that shelf's "ceiling."

So I just checked Pulse and Jetfire isn't even listed right now. I think they really underestimated demand for this figure. I complained to Amazon about the delay and they credited me the difference of the retail vs a 3rd party seller. So luckily mine is shipping out today from that seller.

I'm curious what the issue is in general though.

That's cool. Amazon gave me a $10 discount on my next purchase, which benefits them more, because I will have to buy from them again to use it. And I'm not sure if I will, they have failed to fulfill my pre-orders too many times.

If BBTS or TFS get their stock first I will probably ditch my Amazon pre-order. Maybe I should do it anyway, and if it goes up again, use the $10 discount. :))
