Oh, I know I'm defiantly in the minority on this. In all honesty, It could be a bias thing. I've pretty much hated siege since the first images started to arrive, and that could very well cloud my perceptions of these things.


My kids love it though, even if these figures break under play faster than any other transformer I've given them.

To be fair I think they are starting to turn a corner with Cyberverse, if the recent Deluxe Class reveals are anything to go by, and I've heard a lot of good things about the Spark Armour figures to boot.

Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Ratchet Now Listed on Walgreens Website

Postby Bounti76 » Tue Oct 29, 2019 1:34 pm

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Now that War for Cybertron Siege Ratchet has started showing up at U.S. retail, it was only a matter of time before he showed up on their website, as well. Thanks to Seibertronians Mangamike and Immortal Starscream, we have word that Ratchet's listing is now live! There is a catch at the moment, however. As shown to us by Immortal Starscream, you can add Ratchet to your cart, but can't yet check out; doing so will get you the following error message:

Hopefully this will be sorted out soon, and those of you who haven't found the Autobot Doc in the wild will be able to have him shipped to your door. Good luck to all those hunting for Ratchet or hitting the refresh button on your devices!

Grabbed one this morning. Our closest Walgreens has about 4 Transformers, luckily 2 of them were ratchet. I'm not big on the vehicle mode but the robot mode makes me think of G1.

I came to say the same thing.

You sure about that? Picked one up at lunch time.

Ratchets a really cool figure. The retooling and deco makes him seem like a fresh new toy. The accessories are great, especially the wrench. I did get a chuckle out of the mudhole stompin not battle damage paint. The best part is probably how spot on the head sculpt is. It looks just right ;)^

Found a handy place to store Ratchet's wrench when his hands are full.

Ratchet has been found in Alexandria MN! I am not sure how many are left since I had my brother pick him up for me (I don't have any Walgreens near me, but he does!). I can not wait to get him this weekend!

Also, I picked up the cell shaded OP and Megs and they very interesting. The lighter gray on Megs is nice, but OP is just not doing it for me. If they did not have all the wavy lines on them, they would be much better.

Saw the 35th Anniversary figures at my local Wal-Mart today. Gotta be honest, the Cel-shading actually doesn't look as bad as I though it would on Prime, but it's still not great in my opinion. Definitely going to pick up Bluestreak and Soundblaster, but has anyone else noticed Soundblaster's paint being a bit sloppy/fuzzy? Like, the Decepticon badge was almost covered with the silver on multiple copies that I saw

Just ordered Ratchet. Honestly, hunting for TFs is an exciting thing for me, and I have 3 Walgreens in town, but for some reason I didn't think I should leave it up to chance, not with this figure.

As for the 35th anniversary figures, the display is up at my Walmart, and I was able to check it out. I thought in-hand cel-shaded Megatron looks better than the original Siege voyager, so I picked up one. Passed on Prime and the others. I thought about Blue Streak, but I'm going to pass. I would much rather have a comic-accurate blue Blue Streak. I did notice that the display at my store had a bunch of Brunts. Like 8 or 10 of them.

I got an email from TFSource letting me know the final wave of Siege Micromasters (Soundwave Spy Patrol 2nd Unit and Battle Patrol) is in stock and ready to ship! I just wish they'd put up the final Battle Masters too. They still have no listings for Rung or Singe (and neither does Hasbro Pulse). What gives? They've got the rest of the Battle Masters up on TFSource. I've got Crosshairs, Spinister, Apeface, and Astrotrain preordered on Hasbro Pulse, so Battle Masters Rung and Singe are the only Siege figures left that I haven't secured. I hope I can find them at retail, even though distribution of any Battle Masters beyond Wave 1 has been trash in the U.S. Seriously, I saw Wave 2 Battle Masters on the pegs maybe twice this whole year, and never did I see Wave 3. I had to order Smashdown and Caliburst online from Amazon. Even the Micromasters had better distribution, with only Wave 2 being a little scarce in my area.

Passing on Ratchet in case he gets an Earthrise figure but at least I'll still have a version of the mold when I pick up Crosswise, also means one less headache of looking for an exclusive or overpaying.

Have we seen/heard anything about Apeface's Amazon page disappearing? Like anything from Hasbro or even Amazon? Because I have Apeface pre-ordered on there, and haven't actually gotten any notification saying it's cancelled, but I'm also worried they may end up just not sending out copies to people who pre-ordered with them

I wouldn't be too worried yet. This happened before on something transformers that I pre-ordered from them, but I don't remember which one. The page was eventually restored and I ended up getting whichever one it was on time. I would keep an eye on the ship date (mine says November 15th release, arriving November 17th.) If they miss that date, then I would pre-order from Hasbro Pulse if you have a premium membership, or add something else you would end up buying anyway to get above $70 for free shipping.

Alright, fair enough. The only other time I've ordered anything from Amazon was Punch/Counterpunch so I was just concerned, but thanks for the quick reply ;)^

I have Singe in the mail from an Ebay seller who also has Rung but I already have Rung and Spy Patrol 2 on pre-order through Collecticon Toys. Rung would be cool to have two of so I can keep one in each mode so I might hit up the Ebay person again.
