Though certainly pale in comparison to in-hand photos of Skytread we do have a leaked stock photo of Siege Sideswipe's box front. Far from our first look at the Deluxe level packaging (it debuted all the way back in July during TakaraTomy's local unveiling of Siege) it's nice to see more bits and pieces of the line turning up as we move ever closer to its launch on store shelves - an event we expect to happen by the start of December, if not perhaps a tiny bit earlier!
Early this morning, a product sheet similar to what we've seen in the past offering first signs of upcoming toys was leaked through a Weibo account. Right now we don't have any clear indications of its origin or veracity, but we think there may be enough credibility to present it as a potential rumor, as it included the mysterious MPM-8 which was later listed for preorder by BigBadToyStore. The listing is written in katakana, so keep reading to have a look at that, and the translation that reveals all!
Though we're not expecting these to begin filtering out to retail for another month or so at least, at least one Transformers Siege figure has found its way to the hands of the fan community. Tonight we have our first in-hand look at Skytread, the renamed Duocon Flywheels, with photos taken by ChErikS. We've learned from this that the Deluxe toys will not feature any sort of character bio, nor was a collector card included. That may disappoint some, but thankfully Skytread itself sounds like a very nice figure! Keep reading for pictures and more details.
