Hasbro’s Transformers website has recently updated to allow fans to enter codes from the Transformers Siege packaging – more on that story here: Transformers Siege Blacklight Messages Unlocking Content on Hasbro’s Website
In our earlier story we mentioned nine entries were unlocked, but only discussed eight of them, and that is because the ninth belongs to the exclusive release Greenlight and it in turn strongly hints at a further female Autobot being released to complete the Elita-One combiner team that started in the Power of the Primes line.
Greenlight’s bio can be unlocked using the code Lancer. The most dedicated fans will known that Lancer was the name of the other female Autobot on Elita’s team in Generation One episode “The Search for Alpha Trion”, although at the time of broadcast neither Greenlight or Lancer were named.
Entering Lancer gives you Greenlight’s bio, and unlike the other entries, Greenlight does not get a video but instead a pair of images. One of these is a blank backdrop with hexagons, the generic backdrop of the Siege line. The other, however, shows a schematic for a combiner named “Orthia”. Orthia is indicated to be made up of Elita-One as the torso, Moonracer and Novastar as arms, Greenlight as the left leg, and “classified” as the right leg.
The schematic shows that all of the limbs have equal proportions. This could be for simplicity’s sake, or it could be a clue that “classified” is a hint that we’re getting a fourth combining version of the Moonracer mold to give our Power of the Primes Elita-One a full set of her female Autobot commandos and in turn complete the combiner. As always, we will provide more information as it becomes available.
Some bonus trivia. The new name for the combination, Orthia (replacing the earlier Elita Infinite), is thought to derive from a Greek goddess Orthia / Artemis Orthia. Artemis is closely associated with the hunt, and the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia was located in Sparta and represented the coming together of the four villages that made up the citystate. Sparta was a citystate known for its warriors, with its best known pop culture Spartans including Kratos of the God of War series and Leonidas from 300. The fact the name references a sanctuary associated with four villages coming together to form a state known for its warriors is a great way to reference four robots coming together to make a super robot combiner. Thanks to Purple Heart on the TFW2005 boards for sleuthing that one.
