    So some interesting UPC's were shared. We found out Siege Optimus , Studio series KSI boss and Long Haul UPC's (all Unknown before)
    A 4th one was shared... Apparently belonging to a Siege Leader class Astrotrain. he only has the leader assortment Product code so far. His individual Product code has yet to be found.

    Unless Hasbro wants to assert that the fan vote was for the 2 pack and really more about the Decepticons included.

    Didn't they state that they intentionally made it so the vote included one character they know fans want and one character they know that fans are sick of seeing? Something along those lines.

    The partsforming probably allows for a more believable triple changing effect.

    Might be interesting to see if Springer also has (simpler) partsforming so we can get a cleaner robot silhouette. The T30 version did this a little but the shoulders might stay more on animation model with a bit more.

    Holy crap, Astrotrain!? I thought all the leader class figures for Siege had been revealed. Well so much for only getting 1 leader. Any chance this would be for the 2nd part of WFC?

    Could be. I would put it as a rumor for now until I find more info on it or more info is provided. all the other UPC's check out though. Like I said Leader Prime, KSI boss and Longhual UPC's Were all unknown before so that gives some credibility to the source.

    Interesting thought. Very interesting. That may mean that one or both of his modes will be larger in mass than his bot mode.

    I hope we'll see him displayed in the upcoming con.

    According to my sources, 24 of them make a decent pie. I would assume some recipe for squab/pigeon or quail would be close enough.

    Leader Class Astrotrain?

    Sure it's no Wheeljack rumor, but I am praying it's going to look Locomotive like and not one of those bullet train like vehicles.

    I bet this will be a tease for part 2.

    I hope Astrotrain comes in the second series and get an earth modes.
    TR version was already cybertronian alt modes.
    I just miss that old locomotive and space shuttle modes he has.
    That's the reason i didn't buy the TR version.

    Maybe a streamlined steam engine? A real-world compromise of the two:

    So after looking at Masterpieces I don’t think Hasbro meant official heights (meters and feet) of G1 scale rather heights as each Transformer relates to one another (character A is two heads taller than character B). So if you look at MP figures the robots are to scale with one another, but they are WAY bigger than their real world vehicles (look at Optimus 3.0 and Bumblebee 2.0 next to their human partners) I think siege is somewhere between humans being the height of Primemasters and Diaclone pilots.

    On topic, I hope we see Tidal Wave in the commander class and Thunderwing in leader class in the future.

    Whenever the legend class returns to Generations (hopefully in the next subline after SIEGE) do you think they will still be $10 or be a few dollar more?
