    I donno how I'd feel if this was in fact just a repaint of Prowl. I feel like if you want to actually bring the bad cop Decepticon concept over to a neo-G1 universe, then they should give him his own design...A unique head sculpt at the very least.

    It's listed as a Deluxe price point though.

    I don't like that. Magnus retool makes since but star saber would have to be his own mold and ginrai into star convoy wouldn't work. yet again takara somehow turned overlord into dai atlas so who knows

    well considering that smoky and blue streak are different vehicles from those two I think it could work

    I'm standing by my opinion that the second prime is gonna be star convoy or some mixture of the two

    well just like they've done with the other characters that traditonally would have human words on them they've written in cybertronian numberings instead

    and theres plenty of versions of the cybertronian numbering systems they can choose from

    Maybe we could get both the Micromaster Barricade AND the G1ified Bayverse Barricade in Siege? I mean, Hasbro does reliably have the Barricade name trademark, after all.

    Wouldn't that make the fiction side of things rather confusing?

    Wait, does this mean that the Micromasters are in Cybertronian modes instead of Earth modes?

    It's kinda hard to tell any more, what with all the fake vehicle models in the CHUG line and all.
    Eh, possibly. They seemed to have established guys with same names in the IDW comics like the two Tankors that made friends and the two Breakdowns(G1-style Stunticon & TF: Prime-style Velocitronian), and possibly more instances(I don't actively read the comics)

    There have been multiple figures with the same name in one line before. But I don't think we've ever identified them as separate characters up till (possibly) now.

    I wake up to find out about Barricade. I was not expecting that. Also, we have definitive confirmation that Impactor and Mirage are not a two pack.

    So assuming that the leak about the numbers was right (and it was right about everything else, so I've got little reason to doubt it), and we now know the full Deluxe line up...what does this mean for Wheeljack? WAs he really just a near random character instered into a background shot? I suppose he lost the vote so it's kind of appropriate he doesn't get a toy in this line. I'm holding onto some hope that a deluxe Wheeljack will show up somewhere, somehow!

    So the only mysteries left are the wave 4 - and possibly some wave 3 - Battlemasters and Micromasters, the other Leader Class figure, and whatever other 'exclusives' might be released.

    I realise I'm pinning a lot of hope on those exclusives. I'm going to have to make some serious peace with myself if we don't get Skywarp, Wheeljack, Sunstreaker, Bluestreak, and Bumblebee. They feel like such essential characters , as far as the narrative that's been set up. That said, I'm delighted with the left field choices like the Weaponisers and Barricade. All in all, it's a very strong line up and I'm looking forward to getting the Voyagers and Delxues (hopefully) next month.

    Edited to add an updated spec list. 'Confirmed' but yet to be revealed are in purple.

    Battlemasters (4 waves 10 char)

    Wave 4: More cassettes and maybe some Autobots
    Ratbat and Frenzy
    Buzzsaw and Rumble
    Bumblebee and Huffer
    Rack and Ruin


    Deluxe (4 waves 14 char)
    Wave 1: Sideswipe, Hound, Cog, Skytread (Flywheels)
    Wave 2: Chromia, Prowl, Ironhide, Sixgun
    Wave 3: Red Alert, Brunt, Refraktor (Reflector)
    Wave 4: Impactor, Mirage, Barricade

    Voyager (4 waves 6 char)

    Ah but the MicroMasters aren't named and it's a pallette swap like Whisper and Storm Cloud. So we can have both Barricades.

    I dunno, I kind of disagree on this. There is no reason that these characters would be roughly human-sized, so they wouldn't be in the Micromaster 2-packs. Warden's claim about scale has been backed up by every con reveal so far, so we have no reason to assume that there will be an out-of-scale figure in Siege.

    I'm editing the possibilities here, I think we can assume a few things.

    Battlemasters (4 waves 10 char)
    Wave 1: Firedrive, Lionizer, Blowpipe
    Wave 2: Caliburst, Aimless, Pteraxadon
    Wave 3: Smashdown, Haywire
    Wave 4: Fracas, Recoil

    Micromasters (4 waves 11 char)
    Wave 1: Race Car, Battle, and Airstrike
    Wave 2: Spy Tapes, Rescue, Sports Car, Road
    Wave 3: Construction, Monster Truck,
    Wave 4: Air, Racetrack, or...
    - BuzzSaw/Ratbat
    - Rumble/Frenzy

    Deluxe (4 waves 14 char)
    Wave 1: Sideswipe, Hound, Cog, Flywheels
    Wave 2: Chromia, Prowl, Ironhide, Brunt
    Wave 3: Red Alert, Sixgun, Reflector
    Wave 4: Impactor, Mirage, Barricade
    What if these are exclusive?


    Voyager (4 waves 6 char)
    Wave 1: Optimus, Megatron
    Wave 2: Starscream, Soundwave
    Wave 3: Springer
    Wave 4: Thundercracker

    Leader (2 waves 3 char)
    Wave 1: Ultra Magnus, Shockwave
    Wave 3: Starsaber, or Galaxy Force OP, or Jetfire or StarConvoy
    I'm going to be bold and not go with the Galaxy Force guess. We're two for two for PotP 'evoloution' style leaders in Siege. I think we may still see Starsaber. Just maybe not until wave 3. If he was wave 2 I'd have expected to see something by now.

    I always have to add some Leader Speculation

    Titan: Omega Supreme with Countdown

    Walgreens exclusive: Ratchet

    Amazon exclusive: Skywarp

    SDCC Exclusive: Delta Magnus

    Special editions: Bluestreak and Wheejack (fingers crossed) we need 2 more waves honestly

    There go my hopes for Bluestreak, Smokescreen and Sunstreaker to appear in Siege.

    I would love that. I have half of the Sixwing team, which are my only G1 type figures.

    Happy to see almost everything revealed, it was stressing me out not knowing how to set my budget ha ha. I am still hoping to see more cassettes revealed (c'mon Ratbat), & I am wishfully thinking for a Soundblaster exclusive. Also would be great if we got a Wingthing battlemaster, giving us a complete Soundwave!

    I'm confused as to why those three would be exclusives. We've seen Optimal Optimus win the vote for PoTP and he's been released in the toyline as a non-exclusive. I don't see how that would change. I also don't think Hasbro would make a whole wave exclusives.

    for impactor and mirage, their links specifically call them fan vote figures. all of the previous fan vote figures except for victorion were part of normal waves. these two dont look to be in a normal wave, hence the belief that they may be amazon exclusives. no idea why someone would think barricade is an exclusive as his link is labeled similarly to the other deluxes

    Ah, I see. So would it mean we still have two open slots or no?

    IF they are exclusives i believe that would leave two more spots open, but they may not be exclusives. it really could go either way.
