Just in from In Demand Toys on Facebook are in package images of the upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Battlemaster and Micromaster assortment including Rung, Singe, and Direct Hit with his Micromaster combiner partner Power Punch!

With this assortment you can torch your enemies with Singe, quadra-rocket blast your opponents to pieces with Direct Hit and Power Punch, and seriously de-escalate any intense conflict through conversation and understanding with the help of Rung. It's his eyebrows, so disarming. That should cover you in just about any scenario a Cybertronian battlefield could present.

Will these be helping you round out the first chapter of the War for Cybertron Battlemaster saga or will you pass on them? Be sure to share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Definitely getting Rung and Singe. Probably will partner Rung with Red Alert.

That would make double-dipping a little more tempting. I noticed that the chest hinge on Red Wing was definitely a tighter, more secure fit, and it only popped off when I had something aligned incorrectly and tried to force the chest flush. I guess that's the reason Takara and Hasbro didn't design it with a pin.

Anyone know the magic lot number to look for on latter wave Starscreams?

Supposedly they initially did, but with the prospect of ill-applied force breaking that part they removed the pin, without adjusting the tolerances (metal on plastic vs. plastic on plastic).

Still nothing in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, but some of the Targets have reset their Transformers sections at least. The tag for the Seeker 3-Pack is on said shelves, but no product is available. The listing online keeps going in and out of stock so fast that, even with email notifications from Target, I can't get one ordered even two minutes later.

Oddly enough, I did just spot the Micromaster 10-Pack at a Target earlier today. They had at least two or three of them. No Rainmakers, though. It's like they haven't even been delivered to the Midwest yet.

Sort of my thought. Red Alert now has "24 cycle care" on deck.

So, brutes like me breaking their toys are why we can't have nice things? :lol:

Near as I can tell, they're putting out shelf labels at every target, but only a couple of stores are gonna stock it, no, I don't understand the logic :HEADHURTS:

I have the opposite problem here (Nebraska). Each of my Targets have had ONE Rainmaker set each, but no sign of Micromasters other than the price tag.

I'm curious, though, do you get Battlemasters properly stocked where you are in the Midwest? We just keep getting Wave 1 Battlemasters over and over and over again. And then again after that.

Brickseek still tells me there are no seeker sets at any of my local targets. And online they come in stock at 3am and are gone by 6am, ugh!

I did go by a local Target and did see the tag for the sought after seekers set but obviously no seekers.

I will have to pick up 2 of that ol' boy Bluestreak! I need the other so he can share those proper looking wheels with his brother Prowl...ahhhh yeah! 8-) :VEHI:

His face is getting scrubbed and then smoothed out with putty (or something). Then he's getting a full paint of silver (and maybe some blue) and they will become protoforms who transform into stasis pods.

Actually sounds like a neat idea for a retool that Hasbro should do but won't because "Beast Wars = Not G1".

That's right folks thanks to our fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 we have a video of the much anticipated War for Cybertron Siege Ratchet! Fans have been abuzz over this redux of the Siege Ironhide mold with his clever medbay mode and head crest which may be spot on for some, or completely wrong for others. Like him or love him most fans agree that Ratchet is one of the classic G1 pantheon and is a welcome addition to the Siege roster. Plus with all the battle damage deco's and these Weaponizers exploding all over the place it's about time we get someone on the battlefield who knows his way around a box of bandages.

Is your shelf ready for the original Transformers 'doc'? Who's the first Micromaster in your collection to visit his medbay mode? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

From Chuckdawg1999's post:
"The Doctor is in the HOUSE! Siege Ratchet is fantastic G1 inspired update to the classic character. Retooled from Ironhide Ratchet features a few new accessories including a wrench! Set to be a Walgreens exclusive this is definitely worth the pick-up."

I didn't like Rung as a character (in fact I fucking hate him and who he turned out to be in IDW2005!) but his battlemaster toy immediately caught my eyes due to its completely unique tooling, what with his flip out back part being the rear end of his 'gun' and his legs being the barrels. This left me wondering what to do because the tooling looked like a lot of fun but I didn't like Rung. Taking a look at his body, I noticed how slim and simplistic he looked, even almost androgynous. He also has this big circle on his body which reminded me of this:

Thus I thought he'd look great as a protoform, in other words an infant and unformed Transformers whose body has not grown into its fully completed form. Battlemasters are also super small (only Micromasters are smaller in the current line) which also fitted with their depiction in TFA and Prime:

At first I wanted to get rid of his backpack but I think it could work as a stasis pod part.
