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.

The hunt begins! Unfortunately I'll probably only see him in February next year considering it took like 4 months for the other Wal-Greens exclusives to show up in my area

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.

Well, I guess I'm going to check Walgreen's after work. I'm not holding any high hopes but if I don't the "what if" is going to drive me crazy.

0 for 4 so far here in the Twin Cities.

I've got a question for anyone who has found Siege Ratchet at Walgreens. Are you finding them in the regular "Toys + Games" aisle along with the rest of the Siege Deluxe Class figures, or in the "Seasonal" aisle, where there are also a bunch of random toys?

Just found my copy of Ratchet. Definitely glad that I decided to try one last Wal-Greens after work. He's got some looseness, but he definitely holds a pose. And I also found him in the regular toy aisle

Tried a fifth Walgreens before giving up for the day. No Ratchet for me yet. However, I did stop by a Walmart on the way home from work and found they had their Transformers 35th Anniversary display up. There was a very good selection of Voyager figures available, almost all of them to date, missing only the normal release of Optimus. Megatron had both his battle damaged and cel-shaded versions available. There were a good selection of Wave 3 Deluxes, but strangely, no Bluestreaks. There were only one or two Soundblasters as well. By far, the cel-shaded Optimus Prime and Megatron were most prolific, and I can guess why. They look even worse in person. The paint apps just don't work to create that cartoon shading look when it's on a 3D object. Photographs DEFINITELY flatter those two figures.

That was the first thing I tested when I opened mine. So glad they fixed that issue.

Got to mess around with Siege Astrotrain at TFcon this weekend.

He's..... eh?

He doesn't feel very sturdy, the shuttle mode really is kinda bad, and the train mode isn't as good as I thought it looked in photos, tender or no tender. Also, he has no wrists or waist rotation, and he is a leader.

I'm glad I got to experience him in this form. It definitely convinced me that I will not buy him until he is on sale. He is significantly weaker than the other Siege leaders, which sucks cause I was really excited for him.

...gotta say, I haven't handled the figure so I may not be the expert, but I disagree with this part in particular for two reasons:
1. Unlike every other Siege Leader, his hands actually look to fold away in the transformation, rather than just being covered by a trailer or a laser gun barrel spaceship front, so I can excuse the lack of wrist swivel just like I can on Impactor, Mirage, Refraktor, Flywheels, etc.
2. There are pictures of this figure on this very site that show he DOES have a waist swivel, like this one for instance:
Astrotrain waist.jpg

It looks like you just left his waist skirt bits flipped up and in the way of the joint.

I went 0-6 Friday and Saturday checking Walgreens in the Chicago area (south suburbs). Yesterday my persistence paid off and I found him on the first try.

Looks like each location may be getting 4 of them initially based on what I found and other people's comments. Glad I found 4 on the shelf, as 2 of the 4 had a little bit of messy paint details on the chest.

In case anyone is still trying to find Smashdown at a decent price, I found it at Big Boy Collectibles. I’m not sure how many they have in stock, but at $6.99, I got two.
