Well, to be fair, I think it's safe to say that we're likely to get them in this trilogy, as there's likely some designing done for each, they have no gimmick they need to conform to (like the 'evolution' gimmick of potp) so they can just be them and be released as standard figures. Also, we've finally gotten the omega supreme from the titan class poll, as well as, probably, some form of the 'evolution' magnus and shockwave from the potp poll :-?

I was actually meaning to pose a question about this because the thought occurred to me the other day: are people going to be upset now if Spinister and Needlenose are not Titan Master-compatible to match TR Quake, or do they not care that much about that trio matching? Furthermore, how likely do we think it is that they would have that compatibility? We've seen at least 1 new combiner limb in this line, and there are rumors of Apeface, but we have no concrete evidence of that particular gimmick reappearing just yet.

I could see them maybe redoing Quake when they get around to doing the Double Targetmasters, since he was only one member of three in that group, so that they can also give him his Targetmaster partners.

Parts forming Siege figures like Cog can be used with figures from older lines if they have the same ports, likely won't be many but they definitely work with figures like Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime and all too likely Ultra Magnus as well.

Do you guys know if the Ratchet Walgreens exclusive and Skywarp are actually happening sometime this year?

I read about some activity late last year but it’s been a little quiet ever since.

Keen to get both if I can but worries that they’ll be too exclusive and therefore difficult to get outside of the US.

Thanks

I was just at a Walgreens yesterday and they still had 2 Wreck-Gars and even 2 TR Clone 2-packs from the year before. I think Ratchet will be easy to come by, even from outside the US.
Hard to say with Skywarp. I don't think we even know what retailer he will be exclusive to yet. Do we?

You guys know how Siege Starscream's chest has a habit of popping off a little too easily?

Apparently there's a running change that adds a much-needed pin. Maybe. It's entirely possible that it's actually a modification.

Well, I stopped at Wal-Mart to try and find Wave 2 of WFC and had no luck. But then on my way home I decided to stop at Meijer to pick up some stuff I couldn't find and Wal-Mart and found the Wave 2 deluxes! I only picked up Ironhide because they only had one copy of him, but it was still nice to see all the figures in hand. And yeah, that basically confirmed that I will not be picking up the Prowl mold in any of it's forms. It's not bad per se, I just don't like the proportions of it though

Yeah, I realized the legs are a tad short, other than that it's a really good figure.

So somebody somewhere got a Voyager Starscream with the chest panel pinned in. My rage comes and goes but I also have some concern since I think that piece is all clear plastic.

It's not just the legs, but the width of the chest. It's just wide enough that it annoys me for some reason, but the arms then make it a little worse. I have no idea why it bothers me so much. But eh :lol: At least the people who weren't happy with the CW version have a version actually designed to be Prowl, so that's good :D

Ok, so I just picked up Siege Megatron and, man, what a great figure. Sure, it's a little tricky to get everything lined up perfectly in tank mode but other than that, he is just amazing! Certainly the second best Megatron ever made, second only to MP-36.

The robot mode is fantastic. I love these proportions that would look weird anywhere else. The headsculpt is gorgeous. The plastic colors are perfect, and the battle damage actually enhances what would be a bland figure otherwise. The weapons are perfect, although a slight nitpick I have is that the sword came out slightly bent, so it restricts a little movement in tank mode, but otherwise is great.

Also, I hear alot of people complained about how the neck base doesn't sit on anything, but I've been roughhousing it since yesterday, and it is still tight, and doesn't flop around when I pose it.

Tank mode looks great, and I love how it looks like a hover tank that is just ready to deal some heavy bruising like Megatron should. The turning turret is a nice bonus, and after the mod where I removed the swords from the cannon, can go up now.

All in all, this is a great figure. Great articulation, quality, looks, transformation, and accessories. This figure needs Siege Prime though, so I will gladly pick him up when I find him.

You think it's the chest and arms but it's just the legs. It's a bit of an optical illusion. I thought the same thing too but then it clicked.

I found Soundwave at Wal-Mart and he's great. I wanted to find something else to use his pistol for, and I realized it's almost perfect for Megatron's over-the-shoulder gun barrel. His tank cannon was too long for that purpose, but Soundwave's pistol is a better length. It's a little more narrow than I'd like, but I'm really happy with it.

I'm sure someone else has already suggested that, but I hadn't seen it anywhere, so I'm spreading the word.

So a day or two ago, I had went to my local Walmart hoping to find something from wave 2. Target had not been fruitful for me for the past few weeks, & I only have one local Walmart Superstore that isn't just a grocery store.

My local Walmart was undergoing heavy reorganization, to the point that EVERYTHING in the store was in a different place. I kid you not, there was just a giant section of the store that had nothing in it. It was just a giant open space. I looked down the aisles trying to find anything, but the only thing they had in the Transformers section was a whole bunch of BotBots. As I'm about to leave, I notice out of the corner of my eye, leader Shockwave and Magnus. I look past the 2 leaders, as I already got my hands on both, and what do you know? There was a singular wave 2 figure. Chromia.

Due to the reorganization, I'm probably not going to be able to rely on Walmart for any figures coming soon, which does suck, but hey! I finally got my first Wave 2 Figure.

So, I ordered Shockwave on Friday, and he arrived this morning. After having a few hours to play around with him, I must say, I like him . He's probably the best Shockwave we have outside of the masterpiece line. He has the least distracting battle damage I've seen, at least on my version, and the articulation is pretty great. I love his alt modes, they feel chunky and sizeable. The alt mode with the extra armour feels bigger than it is, like it looks like it'd be a huge warship or something.

His lil drone/sled thing is fun, and his inner robot mode is by far the best G1 Shockwave out there (again, aside from the MP). His 'Super-mode' has Doctor Octopus vibes to me, which I really like with Shockwave's Mad scientist tendencies. He's a lot bigger than I expected to, in hand both of his modes feel nice.

On the subject of his size, my thoughts feel a little more unclear. So, I apologise for more rambling. I wonder if the size/price issue people have with Shockwave is to do with a lack of nuance with Hasbro's pricing structure. There's a pretty hefty disparity between what a Voyager constitutes and what a Leader does. There's a little bit too much here I think for him to be a pure Voyager, but he's a little short and slim to be a Leader. I wonder if maybe this calls for a intermediate size range, maybe priced around £35, for figures like Shockwave who don't fit into either size class cleanly.

Anyways, Shockwave = gud.

I spotted Siege Starscream today at the Mart of Wally. He looked really good (better than expected actually), but I couldn't help but notice...

And he can pull off this pose.

All this time, we assumed he yelled, "Ow, my foot," because he had to shoot himself free of the closing hatch, but really, he just stepped on some Legos! We all know your pain, Starscream.

In other news, I finally saw some Wave 2 Deluxe figures at a local Walmart. Both were Chromia, and both boxes were severely damaged. Either they had been tenderized like a slab of bad steak or they had been drenched in water and put up wet. Either way, I decided not to pick either of them up and just keep waiting.

I watched his review the second the notification popped up, and after watching it, I gotta admit that MP Teacks is still worthy of the Masterpiece title IMO. Sure, he's hollow, and that backpiece likes to pop off, but his articulation is decent, vehicle mode looks great, and his robot mode is nice. Plus, he is the best Tracks we have, so he lives up to the reputation of "Masterpiece offers the best version of a character"(ignoring a few glaring exceptions :BOOM: )

Anyways, he does deserve a better figure than the RTS one, and I would love to see how they can capture his sleek robot mode and incorporate his most important features.

Considering we are doing cybertronian vehicle modes,hasbro could cut some corners with the vehicle mode to make the robot mode a bit more sleeker than his RTS version.
I like Transformers,Halo,Beyblade and Legos

Saw Siege Starscream and Soundwave last night at my Walmart. Passed on both.

Kinda bummed they were the only siege figures in stock. I was hoping for the Micromasters
