Transformers: War For Cybertron has been a hit with fans and kids alike, and now we can exclusively reveal the first look at the next wave of Autobots and Decepticons that will be unveiled at San Diego Comi-Con 2019. Transformers: War For Cybertron is Hasbro's latest version of the popular Generations line, highly detailed and intricate figures aimed at both adult collectors and kids who might just be discovering the franchise's rich history. War For Cybertron is set to be a sprawling trilogy, with the current Siege subline sporting a gritty, more futuristic aesthetic intended to evoke the final days of the Autobot/Decepticon war on their home planet of Cybertron.

Siege has already given fans great versions of Transformers icons like Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ultra Magnus, and Starscream, with previously announced heavyweights like Omega Supreme and Jetfire on the way. While it's always nice to get new, innovative versions of the characters who are the heart of the franchise, previous incarnations of the Generations line have delighted longtime fans by updating more obscure - but just as beloved - characters with their first new toys in decades.

Transformers: War For Cybertron is continuing that proud tradition with the newest wave of figures, which includes both a longtime franchise stalwart, as well as a few bots who haven't been on shelves since the '80s. Check out the newest robots in disguise below!

Leader Class Astrotrain

(Ages 8 and Up/ Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/ Available: 12/01/2019)

Transformers: War For Cybertron Leader Class Astrotrain

The vaunted master of the Astroforce, the Decepticon Astrotrain, has been a staple of the Transformers line since his original toy was released in 1985. He had plenty of memorable moments in the '80s cartoon, including The Transformers: The Movie, when the defeated Decepticons loaded into him as they escaped Autobot City. His new toy maintains his Generation 1 status as a triple changer, transforming both into a futuristic looking steam engine train and a space shuttle. He comes with two JF-50 Ionic Displacer Blasters, the JF-30 Astro Blaster, the W-15 Destabilizer Cannon, and the W-40 Turbo-Core Derailer. All five accessories can combine to form the Omni-Force Orbital Cannon.

Voyager Class Apeface

(Ages 8 and Up/ Approx. Retail Price: $29.99/ Available: 12/01/2019)

Transformers: War For Cybertron Apeface

This is the first time Apeface has gotten a proper toy since his original release in 1987. The new version stays true to the spirit of the original, with some notable 21st century upgrades. The Decepticon triple changer can go from robot, to ape, to Cybertronian aircraft. In a nod to his origins in the Generation 1 Headmasters line, Apeface's robot head can transform into the diminutive Titan Master Spasma. Accessories include the SA Sonic Boom Blaster and EM Electro Shield.

Deluxe Spinister

(Ages 8 and Up/ Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/ Available: 12/01/2019)

Transformers: War For Cybertron Spinister

Another obscure fan favorite, the original Spinister, was released near the end of Generation 1 in 1988. Like that version, the new War For Cybertron toy transforms from robot mode into a Cybertronian helicopter. He comes with an NFM Dual-Fusion Cannon and a Spin-Blast Particle Beam Cannon. For most of his existence, Spinister was a background character in Transformers fiction, but he gained a devoted following when he was featured in the critically acclaimed, fan favorite IDW comic book series Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye and Transformers: Lost Light. He was a member of the Scavengers, a group of low-level Decepticon soldiers - not exactly frontline warriors - who had no real passion for Megatron's cause and chose to go on their own adventures after the Autobots won the war. This one is sure to thrill IDW fans.

Deluxe Crosshairs

(Ages 8 and Up/ Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/ Available: 12/01/2019)

Transformers: War For Cybertron Crosshairs

An Autobot joins the party! Crosshairs is a loving homage to the original 1987 toy - the last time Crosshairs was on toy shelves (though there is an unrelated character in the Micheal Bay live action movies and toyline with the same name). And while he got to hang out with Optimus Prime briefly in the Generation 1 series finale, "The Rebirth," he's been largely dormant ever since. This impressive new deluxe brings him back in style, transforming into a Cybertronian van and packing a W-35 LR Doomblast Forge Launcher, which itself can transform from blaster mode to hammer mode.

All four figures will be on display at San Diego Comic-Con next month, and are slated to hit retail shelves in December.
