    I just entered the wave 4 codes, and now there are only 4 numbers left, 48, 49, 50, and 51. Just checked the locked numbers, 49 is an Autobot, 48, 50, 51 are Decepticons, so the last codes will be on the boxes for Crosshairs, Spinister, Apeface, and Astrotrain.

    Best guess for the exact codes/numbers:
    48) Spinister-????
    49) Crosshairs-????
    50) Apeface-????
    51) Astrotrain-????

    Really hoping Astrotrain's is either 'SPACEBUS' or 'SPACECHOOCHOO'. :lol 
    I'll be surprised if Spinister's isn't 'SCAVENGERS'.
    Crosshairs? 'PINPOINTER', 'NEBULOS', or maybe even 'TARGETMASTER'
    Apeface 'HORRORCON/S' or 'SNAPDRAGON' (as we've had the hint he's coming in chapter 2)

    @denebian Some nice background on the rank sigils HERE.
    I'm most interested in the existence of "Water/Sea" version...

    ...I hope they get some use in Chapters 2 & 3, I'm all in for more Ro-Boats!

    This one is interesting too. If they do make a Tidal Wave, this one is almost certainly the one they will use for him.
    The other may be Broadside?

    There are two maps, front and back of Cybertron. On the front map, Chromia #20 is on the top-right side, and activates fine. On the back map, Chromia #20 is on the top-left side and stays locked.

    Impactor #42 is the same way. He's active on the front map bottom-left, but locked on the back map right-center.

    This calls the lowest Decepticon rank "privet" but on the siege website they are all called "raiders". Also of note the Autobot rank of "specialist" is not listed or shown.

    The article in full explicitly states that Specialist is a new rank created after the initial sigil forms were finalised, thanks to the modularity deliberately designed into them. It's not a full guide but a potted history of their development, the final rank titles are stated on the Siege site itself.

    Yep. It also calls the Decepticon Engineering unit Applied Sciences, but they ended up going with just Engineering on the main site. They also considered calling the Decepticon Specials Ops unit Black Ops, but stuck with Special Ops in the end.
