As part of its Summer 2019 set of exclusive Transformers figures, Target has released a 10 Pack of Micromasters as part of Siege! Check out my first two reviews from this set featuring Ricon and Irontread who can combine to form the Dual-Port Scrapgrinder weapon!
A few weeks ago, Amazon released two exclusive boxed sets of Transformers figures from the Siege line. One was the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron featuring Skywarp, Shrute, Fracas, and Terror-daxtyl. The other was the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce set featuring a G2 inspired Sideswipe, Grand Slam, Raindance and Trenchfoot. The two sets are part of the "Final Strike" story that features these two forces fighting against each other.
2019 marks the 35th Anniversary of the Transformers brand and to celebrate this milestone several figures from Siege are being given new decos. Among them are Megatron and Optimus Prime, whose new decos are intended to make them look "cel shaded" as if they came right out of the G1 animated series. These are also great for anyone who wants these two figures with no battle damage on them. Previously Hasbro released CG renders of these figures.
One of the first Micromaster patrols released in Siege was the Air Strike Patrol, featuring new versions of Whisper and Storm Cloud from Generation One. Check out my review and gallery of this two pack.
Thundercracker loves being able to fly and he literally looks down on those who cannot. While he is a Decepticon, he is not completely committed to the Decepticon cause, though other Decepticons keep him in check. Today I bring you my review and gallery of the newly released Siege Thundercracker!
