We had some Micromaster news today and we are now topping it off with a sighting. Wave 2, which includes the Race Track Patrol and Astro Squad have been found at Target in New York City. This was posted on Reddit. The Earthrise repack of Transformers Siege Micro Masters Direct-Hit & Power Punch aka the Battle Squad. They were found at a Target in Columbus Ohio by Spartan Prime, who posted it on the TFW2005 forums. It is unclear if these are part of wave 3 (or even wave 2) or just a solid case to put extra stock on the shelves.
If you would rather buy wave 2 online, some were in stock earlier at Entertainment Earth and they are being restocked soon. Those are the Race Track Patrol and Astro Squad. You can see the listing here.

Bluestreak looks like the best deco of the mold hut I am gonna have to see the vehicle mode. As it stands, I still prefer Siege's chest hood proportions and I really dont yave any sentimwntality to Smokescreen or Bluestreak. I'll get Prowl because I wabt Ironhide and I will like him, but not planning on the complete trio

See? That's Bluestreak's head! I guess since he got Prowl's last time, what goes around comes around. I might have to get two of these to swap the Siege head as well.

So Double Dealer just arrived from Amazon.... pretty happy with him. The legs are still very weird to me. Think the “bird” mode is my favorite. Interesting that he was marketed as a decepticon but does indeed have a mercenary faction symbol on his insert.

I haven’t heard many folks complain about the parts forming on him. But both his accessories and his ramp/tail do have to come off and be reattached.

It is interesting that the instructions have you attach the tail to the missile instead of the main body.

Not really. Bluestreak is more than likely a Walgreens exclusive like Ratchet last year




:BANG_HEAD:


WFC-E32, that lands him in the exclusive section before Wave 3, with Pounce & Wingspan at E30 and Ironhide & Prowl at E31. Wave 3 starts at E34 with Trailbreaker.

I wish we knew what Barricade looked like. I wonder if they retool his alt-mode? I think it would cool if they made him look a little like the Bay-verse version of his police car

Wave 2 micromasters? I haven't seen wave 1 yet!

They've been out for some time now, if you're frustrated you might just want to order online. I've seen wave 1 at Targets, and Amazon has the cars in stock now. Specialty retailers are also an option. Anyway, they're out there.

I’ve had some difficulty finding exclusives at Target and Walgreens, although I was able to attain Ratchet at my local store. I’ll grab Blue Streak, although I’m crossing my fingers I don’t have to pay the scalper markup. I missed Red Wing because my Target Red Card expired from lack of use (and it was never in my local store). Thus far, I’ve resisted paying $80 to a scalper, although I did pay the a small scalper markup for the Rainmakers and Villains 2 pack. *Shrugs*

What Barricade? I don't think he's getting an update in Earthrise :-?

Not that I’ve heard of. Maybe we’ll get something down the line with Kingdom, Netflix, or Selects?

There's a leaked listing for Netflix Barricade. Also, Deep Cover, an Allicon, and Cheetor. They were leaked around the same time as the Netflix Wave 2 deluxes.

Ah if its under the netflix line then that might understand why it didn't ring any bells with me

Care to point me in the direction of this Netflix leak? Barricade and Deep Cover are news to me for Netflix. Allicon is already in Earthrise. I don't understand why they'd release another one in Netflix, unless there is a great alternate deco they have in mind. We're already getting the Bailiff retool of the Allicon in the Quinesson Judgment set coming up in September. Cheetor I thought was already slated for Kingdom, so again, I wonder what kind of redeco we'd get. "Dirty Battle Damaged Cheetah" sounds a little odd.

I dig that Bluestreak... Hope to find him. But I'm still planning on getting Smokescreen, so if BStreak is too much of a pain to find, I'm not worried.

Who else will have Ramjet and Dirge in a week??

Toysrus reopened in Canada a little while ago but there didn't seem to be anything new. That's all changed now since Earthrise Scorponok and Skylynx have been found along with the Seeker two pack featuring Thundercracker and Skywarp. The sightings come from Ontario. The image below was posted by Havokboix on Cybertron.ca who found these in Mississauga.

There was a 20% off sale this week and these are the prices they were at:

Seeker 2 pack: 63.97 ($49 USD)
Skylynx: 95.97 ($72 USD)
Scorponok: 199.97 ($151 USD)

Also, speaking of Canadian sightings, the battle call Cyberverse figures were found at Walmart for $35 CAD ($27 USD).

Those are some nice prices!!


I went into Walmart just a couple days ago, and the TF Siege/ER section was completely empty.
I've never seen a section literally empty like this. There was a lot fro Cyberverse but that was it.
I was just in the Target by me and the only ER figures were 2 Starscreams (there was some Siege stuff).

Does anyone else think that Hastak is pumping the brakes with distributing ER stuff because the show was delayed and the toys for the second part of the show were released waaaay early?
Would a company lose money if they back-out of sending product to stores? Or does Hastak have an established "contract" with a store like Target which reserves peg and shelf space, and if they don't send product, the higher-up's for Target just sit back and think, "Well, it's your product that's not being sold since you're not sending it... As much as we don't like the look of a thinned-out section, we're still making money from the contract we agreed to so we can deal with some empty pegs".
Just seems like for quite a while this area has been really thin with ER stuff...

I wouldn't say the toys for the second part were released too early, 2020 was always the year for Earthrise. The Combiner Wars cartoon didn't release till after that line had finished. Plus the show wasn't delayed by that much (we're talking months) Siege cartoon was never going to debut when the Siege line was out.

Yeah, that's why the toyline accompanying it is the Netflix line, not the siege line.
