Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

I figure these ought to go in their own thread.

 

My attempt at organizing those funky little badges on the Siege toys using the official webpage's rather scant info:

BU0OHEZ.jpg

aRuzYuD.jpg

 

As I don't have any real interest in collecting this line (apart from Brunt), any help would be greatly appreciated. Especially with the little 2-pack guys since the packaging tends to obscure the badges.

 

 

Should be fun to see this fill out over the rest of the WfC trilogy... or to see if it grows out of control as more and more units and divisions are arbitrarily added.

Hypothesis: Soundwave and co. are something like 'Recon', and the Race Car Patrol's unique symbol is the Autobot equivalent.

I'd guess "Espionage" for Soundwave and Ravage just because of who they are.


-ZacWilliam, Honestly if I was designing the army I'd make an Operations segment of which Communications, Recon and Espionage were separate related sub-divisions probably but...

Copy-pasting for whenever I update this again:

 

Also, Red Heat and Stakeout seem to be Infantry Privates.

 

 

And since this is semi-related:

 

attachicon.gifIMG_6781.JPG

So having figured this badge nonsense out, I have some thoughts about this:
- top is Optimus
- below him is probably Stepper
- next to that, with the sword and fancy lines, is Megatron
- sword with jet wings is likely Redwing (Screamer has Sword+Wings but higher rank)
- then it's Swoop, with the little jet wing and Spec Op clawmarks (which sorta seems to means "combiner", though by this logic Stepper should have the same)
- bottom is, er, some flying Decepticon? Possibly with a Weaponizer gimmick (Sixgun repaint? Although Sixgun himself isn't "Artillery")


Cybertronian writting is OBEY, FREEDOM, and... VOLT?

 

 

EDIT:
I dunno how useful these will be, but:

Even more badges hiding in that Selects box. Another mid-rank Infantry bot, and someone who apparently likes snow... or is a Chaos Worshiper.

Sorry about that. I'll admit they weren't super clean to begin with, though it looks like Imgur made it even worse when clicking that Save Image link...

Or rather, I'm now noticing his rank symbol is less complex than Soundwave and Shockwave's. Presumably Screamer's the equivalent rank as Ironhide.

EDIT: SS and IH are both ranked Captain
Star's Division is indeed Air Force
Soundwave's Unit is Espionage
 

EDIT 2: First post updated

 

 

 
Also, let me try retry doing PNGs for some of these things since the official site's got decent pics up.

Still more badges hidden in the flaps of that Selects box:
- our first look at a Decepticon "sergeant" (possible seeker)
- a second 'Con General -- presumably another Megatron, who may or may not be in a different division
- another Autobot Infantry/Ground Command Private

...er I mean, I guess that symbol means, er, "Security" or something?

 

 

(also, Reflector is in the Espionage Unit and Brunt is "Maybe Artillery")

I don't know if you've been paying attention to TCG stuff, but Wave 3 is a Siege tie-in and every character has a rank appended to their name. Maybe that can help with this stuff?

Red Alert's card says he's a medic rather than Security Chief and that top part of his symbol kinda looks like the Star of Life, so maybe that's supposed to be a medical thing?

I'm completely out of the loop on the card game. Maybe I should look into it since Red Alert is indeed in the Medical Unit:

And confirmation on some of the other group names, too. A bit of an error with Galaxy Upgrade Prime, though; his badge here has the Special Ops top even though the bio and actual toy packaging says otherwise.
