New War for Cybertron Trilogy: "Siege" is the 1st chapter
Go back to where they came from. Decepticons went to far and Autobots had to rise up to combat them. How these autobots look in this gritty war environment. probably more firepower.

Deluxe Class: Hound -munition experts.
Battle Master weaponized accessory comes with clear battle effect 3 mm post and can put on other characters in the line and display them like nothing before. and armorized them like never before.
Micromasters can join together to become weaponized accessories and more articulation than before. new level of articulations
Deluxe Sideswipe: vehicle new design. want Cybetron mode but relate with transformers fans
All assortment designs will have a gritty Cybertron look. All in scale with each other "scale accurate". More articulation than before. They have "wheels" on cybertron to relate to fans.

CB Blast off
POP Punch counterpunch sacrifice combiner port to give ultimate punch counterpunch figure
Most cohesive story line ever in this series. taking all things in this brand great and putting them together in this series from previous series. designed over 90 bots just for season 1. some we haven't seen on screen in a while. find a modern look but G1 homage look. found a good balance for this show.
Clip bumblebee lost his memory and Windblade helping him to get it back. remembering Megatron uniting all Transformers, "till all are one" scene. episode name Megatron is my hero
Toys: accurate figure style.
New action attacker feature. each character has a unique action attack feature and brought to life in the toy also
Ultimate - each ultimate class does action attack in both modes.
