    To be fair, even the decoder site doesn't see SIIEXXXIITSFAT as happening...

    *Gasp* double played!!

    Maybe they are "ones" instead of "eyes"? Was that tried yet?

    "I" & "1" are different characters in the Ancient Autobot/Cybertronian text they use.
    I = Screen Shot 2019-03-15 at 17.25.13.png = 1

    The whole “SIIEXXXIITSFAT” code makes me think that it would have been cool if Hasbro had added a ton more codes that didn’t necessarily appear on the package but acted as a “bonus hidden game” for the hardcore fans. What I mean is that a lot of us were already inserting random TF key terms as codes without knowledge that they were legit. Maybe Hasbro could do something like this in the future or just expand these simple web puzzles in the future. It’s a cheap but fun way to keep fans engaged.

    It would have been nice if just one of "Tiger" Megatron's "codes" worked.

    The decoder site only allows letters anyway, no numbers or punctuation.

    In case anyone has been wondering why Chromia\'s file is not accessible, it appears on the map of Cybertron twice, on both sides, yet only one is unlocked. Chromia\'s file is number 20, it appears on one side of the map in the upper right corner of the planet and on the other side of the map it appears on the upper left corner of the planet. The side where the file is on the upper left corner is still locked, and it states that it will not be unlocked until April. Hopefully both file 20\'s will be fixed and this issue with Chromia\'s blacklight code gets resolved soon. I hope this has helped with others confusion.

    I'm not sure how much difference that actually makes. 13 is listed twice as well. Also, all blue numbers 20+ say April, if you inspect the code of the website.

    What's the point of having THREE threads on Siege codes if no one is going to read them?

    I can confirm Chromia's code is indeed SIIEXXXIITSFAT but it still doesn't work.

    Looks like the code for Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime is "CONVOY"

    I don’t know why but that makes me smile. It’s really nice when western figures give a salute to their birthplace.

    Okay, so I recently caved on the Race Car Patrol and I've just noticed on their instructions they have a unique AFAIK Rank Sigil, apparently they are Ground Command Privates but they aren't Artillery (3 rockets upper), Infantry ("blade" upper), or Spec Ops (I think it's a stylised wing motif upper? Sorta four robo-"feathers") like most Siege 'Bots thus far but rather this "Maze" upper:
    Screen Shot 2019-03-29 at 15.13.53.png
    Anyone know what unit they may be? Intelligence? Reconnaissance?
    Is there a Sigil guide I've missed?

    I'm gonna make an educated guess and say Espionage, like Soundwave. The Decepticons Rank Sigil is similar enough to the Autobots, with Infanty (blade center), Spec Ops (4 wing things center), Espionage (maze center), Engineering (gears center). Both have blade as Infantry and 4 "wings" as Spec Ops, so maybe maze on both is Espionage as well.

    Well, what a berk! I didn't think to scour the 'Con sigils! I reckon you're right it struck me as a Maze-style symbol, Espionage it is unless proven otherwise. Hopefully Mirage's rank sigil will confirm it eventually.

    I've also noticed Jetfire and Omega Supreme have unique sigils. They aren't Ground Command, and I don't know their units either. They both appear to have the Captain rank though. Oh, and Galaxy Prime has the same division as Omega, Infantry unit, and General rank.
    EDIT: And Pteraxadon has what looks like the same division as Jetfire. I find it odd ALL the battlemasters are listed as Artillary, even the blade ones like Lionizer and Pteraxadon.
    EDIT2: I'm making an educated guess that Jetfire and Pteraxadon are Air Command, since the left side looks like a jet wing. Still no idea on Omega and Galaxy Prime. Maybe Space Command, to mirror Shockwave's Space Force? Makes sense for Omega, but not sure it makes sense for Galaxy Prime.
    EDIT3: After thinking about @Seeaich request, I've started a Google Spreadsheet with all the ones I can decode. I'll add the Micromasters when I get home and dig out my instructions. I'll try to keep it updated as toys come out. Feel free to copy the info.
