Apeface's Amazon page is gone completely and Crosshairs says "Currently Unavailable" as opposed to the pre-order button + release date.


I don't believe they have been officially released, but I do think Hasbro has let some select partners like Siebertron himself have an early preview of the figures, hence the great batch of new photos.

That is weird that the Amazon Listings for the last Siege wave has either gone to currently unavailable (Crosshairs, Spinster and Astrotrain) or just flat out dissappeared like Apeface. I have all 4 on pre-order (I jumped on them as soon as they were announced), and clicking on Apeface goes to a "page not found" screen.

Also weird are the different expected dates for each of the figures on Amazon compared to Pulse. Amazon has Apeface as mid November, Astrotrain as early December and Spinster/Crosshairs as early January. Pulse had everyone except Astrotrain as early December and Astrotrain as early January.

I've had a mixed bag with Amazon for their earlier than Pulse release dates. I got my Jetfire and Thundercracker earlier than Pulse had them, but Mirage did end up getting pushed back to match up with Pulse.

So over the course of the last week I got my hands on Mirage, Barricade, the Fan Vote 3-Pack, and Selects Hot Shot and Cromar. All of them have been great, been having a great time, I may do a post actually going over how I feel about them in detail later like I've been meaning to since last week.

The point of this post, though, is a warning for those who aren't/haven't been being careful, because after owning and transforming Mirage for exactly a week today the clear plastic pegs on his legs that peg into the torso during transformation broke while I was transforming him back to bot mode. His alt mode is still functional, as the tabs on the torso and the arms hold him together, but it doesn't make me not annoyed, especially since I KNEW that there was risk of this happening to those tabs because multiple people pointed it out and I tried to be careful, but getting those tabs to peg in and come back out required way more effort than it felt like it should.

So yeah, there's my cautionary tale. The figure's still functional, but I feel like he just dropped in my rankings of the Siege figures I own now.

I really like him, especially how the shoulder guns combine into a 5mm double-barrel.

My Smokescreen arrived from Pulse today. I gotta say, i think thisvisvthe best deco on the mold. I think the paint really allows the canopy to pop and make for a less flat and more believable vehicle mode.

You really do. His paint job really makes the mold pop, so much more so than Prowl. I feel the same way about Soundblaster too. Trading the blue plastic for black and turning the optics and chest door red makes the mold look truly menacing. These redecoes RULE!

I ended up ordering Soundblaster from Walmart.com when I figured he wouldn't show up in stores and paid 39.99. If I find it in the store for 29.99 I'm going to be a little ticked off.

So my Walmart usually does not stock more than SS and Siege deluxes so I did not think that I would ever see the crazy 35th anniversary figures. But I had to stop at Walmart today and I found them! It was fully stocked! After I took a Bluestreak, OP, Megs, and Soundblaster they still had all these left:
Regular Megatron 3
Cell shaded Megatron 7
Cell Shaded OP 5
Soundblaster 5
Thudercracker 3
Starscream 3
Springer 2
Bluestreak 7
Hound 3
Reflector 4
Brunt 4
Red Alert 4

This is the most TF I have ever seen at my local Walmart. This, and getting a DOTM Guzzle in the mail, really made my day.

I just ordered Singe from a seller on Ebay who states both Singe and Rung are supposed to ship the 18th of this month. I already have Rung on preorder at Collecticon along with Spy Patrol pack 2. Almost tempted to double up on Rung for more battle effects plus I can keep one as a bot and one in Matrix-making mode lol.

Exclusive WFC Siege Ratchet Found at Walgreens in the US

Postby william-james88 » Fri Oct 25, 2019 6:59 am

I know what you are all thinking, FINALLY!!!!!! Yes, your lonely days are over and life is like a song because Transformers War for Cybertron deluxe Ratchet has been found at Walgreens. These are hitting the states all at once it seems since we are getting sightings in both Washington and California. These are part of the big holiday restock that so you'll still need for your Walgreens to put that new stock on the shelves, which may take a while. Ratchet is exclusive to Walgreens but will be plentifull simply because it is still a retail toy made in mass amounts and Walgreens is getting all the stock destined to the US. He is a heavy retool of Ironhde and while the transformation is indentical, most surfaces are retooled for new details. He also has a third mode as a med bay and special accessories. You can see a better review on differences here.

The particular sighting below is from bagofshhh who posted the DC sighting on the TFW2005 boards.

I'll be checking Walgreens around here for sure. Luckily, we have dozens of them in the Twin Cities. I hope at least one of them has them on the shelves now.
