Takara Tomy Mall has posted two new listings for the upcoming Powerdasher Zeta and Nightbird figures. This is the first official posting of these figures online, with previous reveals being limited to conventions in Asia or online leaks. Powerdasher Zeta is a redeco and retool of Siege Brunt based on the Generation One "drill tank" Powerdasher. Nightbird is a redeco and retool of the Siege Chromia figure. Check out the official Takara photos and official descriptions below (via Google Translate):
Thanks to a user on imgur, fans now have a first look at what appears to be a "War for Cybertron: Siege" Hot Shot action figure! This figure is a redeco and retool of Siege Hound. It appears to be a homage to Cybertron Defense Hot Shot from Cybertron. Fans have speculated on this figure for a while now when they noticed that Hound's box art actually shows the Hot Shot head and not Hound's!
Back in 2018, Hasbro launched a Fan Vote to choose figures for the (then) upcoming "War for Cybertron" trilogy. Two of the figures in that Fan Vote were Impactor and Mirage. Since then, both figures have been revealed as regular releases for the "War for Cybertron" toy line. However, at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 it was announced that redecos of both figures would be packaged in a 3-Pack along with Powerdasher Aragon (a redeco/retool of "Siege" Cog) as a "Fan Vote 3-Pack"!
Autobot Lancer is a new figure based on a character who appeared very briefly in the Generation One cartoon. She was released at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 via Entertainment Earth. Check out my review and gallery of Autobot Lancer!
Fans have heard about a rumored Deluxe Class Ratchet for "War for Cybertron: Siege" for months now. At the Hasbro Panel during San Diego Comic-Con they finally confirmed the figure as a Walgreens exclusive. Now thanks to the Official Transformers Facebook Page we have official CG renders of the figure and confirmation this will be an exclusive at Walgreens this Fall. The figure is not on Walgreens' site just yet but once it is you can bet BWTF will report on it!
