Via Gameinformer, we're getting our very first look today at the next iteration of Transformers Generations, the War For Cybertron: Siege line, before its full debut during SDCC next week. Gameinformer has gotten exclusive early looks at three figures: a Voyager Optimus Prime whose silhouette was teased on Wednesday, a new Deluxe Sideswipe, and Firedrive, a representative of the Hasbro release of the Targetmaster molds TakaraTomy developed for several Legends Series figures, which will be taking over the Titan Master/Prime Master price point.
Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron: Siege Battle Masters WFC-S1 Firedrive
The WFC-S1 FIREDRIVE figure converts from robot mode to Duo-Charge Electrostatic Photon Cannon mode in 5 easy steps. Use the weapon mode to equip other Siege figures (sold separately) with larger mission loadouts and use the included Fire Blasts to simulate blasterfire or explosions firing from the ends of weapon mode Battle Masters or other Siege weapon accessories (not included/ each sold separately).
Retail Price: $5.99
Transformers Generations War for Cybertron: Siege Deluxe Class WFC-S10 Sideswipe
This articulated 5.5-inch scale Deluxe Class WFC-S10 SIDESWIPE action figure features classic conversion between robot and CYBERTRONIAN car modes in 16 steps. The WFC-S10 SIDESWIPE figure features story-inspired battle-worn deco and is equipped with a W-10 Photo-Pulser Proton Launcher weapon accessory and a W-5 Gyro Blaster weapon accessory. The 2 weapon accessories mod-lock together to form the larger RR Gyrofuse Axleswitch Hyper-Blaster.

Just realized. With the whole combining and interconnecting weapons/accessories of this line(I guess similar to Transformers Energon where weapons can be combined), I wonder if Sideswipe has a port where you can have the red part of his blaster act as the Shoulder Missile? Guess we'll know in time. Maybe as early as SDCC.
I wonder if the "Story Inspired Battle Worn Deco" is really necessary. I mostly prefer my TF's pretty much clean with no battle damage if you will. I mean, if the price increase is because of the Battle Damage Deco, then maybe they could just not do it and keep the costs of figures lower. Or even, use that money for the Battle Damage Deco for more paint details or what have you(Like say Hubcaps, headlamps, lines, etc.).
From the revels so far, will strongly consider Sideswipe since I don't have a G1-ish Sideswipe, and this will fit the bill. Assuming the Seekers will be done, will have to see how the Seekers look and their scale(Like are they going to be Deluxes or Voyager Class), but I will consider Skywarp or Thundercracker if they look good.
Since this is suppose to be the early days of the war, I wonder if we'll get another version of Orian Prax. Because I personally wouldn't mind a Legends Class version of the character. Maybe also a Deluxe or Voyager Alpha Trion as well.
