Toy News: Hasbro Announces the Follow Up to "Siege" - "Earthrise"!

With War for Cybertron: Siege winding down, Hasbro has teamed up with IGN to reveal the follow up series to Siege in the War for Cybertron series: Earthrise! The name (and vehicle modes) revealed suggest that Earthrise will be set on Earth following the crash of the Ark (assuming G1 story elements still apply). IGN's reveals show off an Optimus Prime in his classic G1 appearance complete with trailer! Also for fans into Micromasters, Big Daddy is joining the fray! In a very interesting change up, the "Weaponizer" style of Deluxe Class figures will now include Micromaster bases! Ironworks is able to break apart into pieces of armor or weaponry and form a Micromaster base and robot with ramps to connect to other figures such as Fortress Maximus!

Ben's World of Transformers will be attending Hasbro's press events this week. Be sure to follow me on this site, on Facebook and Twitter for updates!
