Hasbro is teasing out images (via Game Informer) of the next Transformers Generations line of figures a bit early ahead of San Diego Comic Con 2018. The tagline is War for Cybertron with a sub-sub tagline of Siege. So “Transformers: Generations: War for Cybertron: Siege” (or something :)) Shown off are Optimus Prime, Sideswipe and Firedrive. Firedrive is what they are calling a Battle Master and seems to be in the smaller price point range of $5.99, converting from mini-bot to weapon. Optimus is a Voyager at $29.99 and Sideswipe is a Deluxe at $19.99, both with a very G1-esque look, yet Cybertron-ified.
What is interesting is that the original War for Cybertron name usage was associated with the awesome Activision / High Moon console games. And today, this new line has been revealed via Game Informer, which is primarily a video game website. Are we getting a new War for Cybertron style video game? Time will tell!
Stay tuned for more as the line gets revealed in more detail next week at SDCC!
