If this figure doesn't come to be I'm gonna turn into an Ape! Face!
Both down as December releases in the info leaked by distributors
Apeface - Transformers Siege War For Cybertron Action Figure Voyager Class at Cmdstore.ca
Siege Leader Astrotrain Confirmed!
SDCC is a good bet, and I wouldn't expect to see anything before: POTP and Siege made their debuts there for a cDecember release.
SDCC is July 18–21 (with Preview Night on July 17) Special Guests
NYCC if they don't - Siege's w1 Decepticons were shown there last year.
NYCC is Oct 3-6 New York Comic Con - the biggest and most exciting popular culture convention on the East Coast! - New York Comic Con - October 3 - 6, 2019 - Javits Center
My thought process with reveals is this - we probably have a dozen releases that have to be officially revealed - 2 micro masters, 2 battle Masters, Ratchet, Astrotrain, Apeface, Lancer, Greenlight, Firestormer pack, Skywarp pack and the mysterious final Decepticon (I’m guessing a Deluxe). The reveals for siege have been the following:
SDCC and the lead up Game Informer article - 12 figures
NYCC and the Italian convention - 14
NYTF, the lead up Comicbook.com article and the Australians TF - 13
So one more convention size info dump should remain but Botcon is gone and I do not think that SDCC will be the venue for these except for a select few. I think that Lancer, Greenlight, Firestormer and Skywarp will be Amazon exclusives releases around Prime Day/SDCC like the Prime Wars sets and Nemesis Prime. I think the majority of SDCC will be focused on WFC 2!
The rest will probably just be revealed via renders on Facebook and Instagram.
For anyone wondering Astrotrain has been listed in Walmart's system.
I haven't been able to find Apeface yet.
I don't expect Apeface and Astrotrain in Siege Line. I think Apeface and Astrotrain will be in WFC 2.
We already have confirmation Astrotrain's wavemate is Ultra Magnus. I don't see them carrying UM over to WFC 2.
The only example of mixed line cases I can think of was the transition between Beast Wars and Fuzors where the early Fuzors came packed with late BW toys. I'd need to check if this happened in the US but it was definitely the case in Europe.
And that was TWENTY years ago.

I really hope Snapdragon isn't far behind, I've been waiting for a Voyager Snapdragon for so long.
Yeah. They’re very committed to completing sets of characters so I’m sure they won’t forget him.
We never got Eject from Rewind...
Beast Machines Deluxes and Ultras got mixed with "Dinobots"-branded figures.

Hasbro have said they are committed to completing sets of characters recently.
That being said they never repainted rewind into eject back in Titans return.
Were you being sarcastic originally?
I’d write uhh again but I feel I’d be running to joke down. It was meant to be an oh shid moment.
Ah I’m with you now
Look at it this way, they did the all the headmasters, Combiners are a work in progress, almost done with the '84, '85, and '86 Autobots and cons, Titans are a work in progress (only really missing scorpinok) and they got almost all the sub-teams done like the Insecticons, Dinobots, combiner teams, Duocons, and others.
Hasbro is good at following through on chugs.
I’m sooooo ready to see Apeface and Astrotrain!!
Holy cow, if this was the days of Alternators we’d have stolen factory samples floating around already!
