Weapon: No Weapon
Just wanted to share a good Hasbro experience. I know they get thrown under the bus quit often but a little positive is always good.
I got an Omega Supreme a few months back and finally got around to opening him up last week. Well to my displeasure he was packed with the same two tracks/wing pieces. I contacted customer care about the situation and after a few days and emails they are shipping me a new set of tracks for him. Looking forward to having my Omega Supreme properly complete. :KREMZEEK:

Not really into this line as much as other people are, but I did pick up Brunt, and he's pretty cool. Still trying to figure out the best-looking way to attach him to Trypticon, though.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the UV codes from the sides of the packages? I don't have a blacklight, so I can't do it myself.

I'd have to get him out of storage, but brunt in tank mode slots behind Trypticon's head in Kaiju mode.

Actually, I was talking about robot/beast mode, but I was thinking more along the lines of wearing him as weapons/armor. I've got a cannon for each arm, but I'm not entirely sure what to do with the hip piece and arm pieces Would have been nice if there were some usable peg holes on Trypticon's head so it'd be easier to make a helmet/crown from Weaponizer bits.

Nice pictures though

Thank you .

I'll try that, thanks.

Edit: Nah. You lose the neck articulation that way and don't really get anything in return. It works as storage space, but it doesn't really take advantage of the whole "weaponizer" thing.

Sorta? He only has one 5mm port on his back, but his hands are 5mm as well. Full-tilt's gun is pegged to the side of the big cannon.

In the pic the purples are a little off, but in person I can't tell the difference. I was even able to sneak a little Earthrise shield action in on the old boy.

Siege is all guns, Earthrise is all Shields, what’s chapter 3, helmets? Only every helmet also...turns into a wall piece. And armor.

When I equip any Transformer with a Weaponizer component I have to make ‘ch-chk’ and ‘hss’ sound effects repeatedly like a Brave Series combination sequence. That’s what I get for having combination sequence compilations play in the background too often.

Mechafan problems, am I right?

He also has 1 more 5mm port option if you don't transform the cod-piece fully and use the screw hole in his crotch (I don't like where this is going) to give him a belly (yeah right wiener) gun...

So did Siege Ratbat come out and I just missed him? I was able to get the Battle Patrol at local retail, but I haven't seen these cassettes anywhere, and online retailer orders are sold out everywhere.

Edit: I also don't know why they weren't available from Hasbro Pulse when most other MMs were.

I still think someone ought to make some Weaponizer (or POTP Leader Evolution figures) stop motions with Brave sound effects. POTP Rodimus's transformation seems pretty Brave-ish too.

I missed those two as well. I'm not sure how wide spread their release was. I've checked the sightings section and there isn't very many. Now all the online orders are sold out.

I want Ratbat, but I'm worried we won't see a Frenzy. Without a blue guy and a red guy, I won't be too sad I missed out though.

I did see and snag Ratbat and Rumble at Target, they are probably going to be your best bet, but the recent Earthrise sightings for the micromasters is a bit worrying that they might have made their appearance and are done.

I really only got them for Ratbat (and the previous set for Laserbeak), so I'm okay if we never see a Frenzy. I just don't like how tiny Rumble and Ravage ended up being as micromasters and prefer the Titans Return molds, even with their flaws over these little guys simply for my preferred bot-mode size.

I'm trying to hold off on eBay prices for the time being. My panic was prompted by the Earthrise sightings, but I'm not sure that's as big a deal as I feared. If they all have the same inventory number, them some stores may be cycling through stock faster than others. The Botbot series 4 blind boxes were sighted long before most Targets had series 3, but they still came in. My gut is telling me to be patient, which is easier said than done.

I have not seen Rung in stores yet, and only saw a single Singe (got both from a friend). Only saw a single set of each micro team too.

They are coming in and then going very fast. It might depend solely on the day you go if you find them

I guess I lucked out when I got both Singe and Rung at a Target around Christmas time. That said, you can find listings for those all over eBay; even if they're selling out at retail, the secondary market is brimming with them. By contrast, Ratbat and Frenzy are very rare. I only found a single domestic listing, and it's asking almost four times the retail price. I think the distribution for Ratbat is far behind the Battle Masters.

Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Spinister Concept Art

Postby Bounti76 » Wed Jan 22, 2020 1:32 pm

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Thanks to artist and friend of Seibertron Ken Christiansen, we have an interesting look at concept art for one of the final Deluxes for the Siege line, Spinister! Ken has been kind enough to show us his drawings for the figure, and you can see that a few things have changed between concept and plastic, the lower legs especially, as Ken notes.

It looks so close to the final product other than the cockpit is missing a side. Were they going to try and clip the two legs together or nest? Seems unlikely as all the other parts are present and the transformation might have been the same as it is on the final product. Still very interesting stuff.

Also, can anyone with a FB account post the rest of the pics here? I tried to follow the link but got caught in a not logged in loop. Thanks ;)^
