Today we have a big update for our gallery selection – 7 figures get dropped all in one shot! We have the next rounds of Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise figures – Leader Class Optimus Prime along with Deluxe Cliffjumper, Hoist and Wheeljack. In addition to those, we also have some Siege stragglers which we are just now getting up – Apeface and the Ratbat / Rumble 2 pack (shout to Bulkhead!).
Earthrise continues to impress – the Prime is a work of art and is pretty much a baby Masterpiece. Looks faithful and good in both modes with minimal gaps and kibble. A little more paint or high quality finish would be nice but for 1/10th the price of MP44 you can’t complain. Wheeljack also has some MP engineering inspiration and along with Cliffjumper, Grapple and Hoist, it is a VERY OG G1 looking bunch.
Apeface falls outside my normal focus of Season 1 and 2 cartoon characters. But I had him as a kid and couldn’t resist going nostalgic for a bit. He gets the job done but I still dig the OG jet mode a bit more. Ratbat and
Frenzy Rumble are required pick ups for Communications fans of either faction. It took me a bit to track them down but they are here hanging with Soundwave now.
All in all, Earthrise continues the Siege DNA of great toys and tight nostalgia while Siege still has some gems to hunt down if you haven’t yet.
Read on to check out all 7 figures below in our gallery system, 180 shots total. These come courtesy of TFSource – depending on what you are looking for they have some in stock. Grab your preorders for the next waves so you don’t miss out, some heat coming later this year (hopefully)!
