Several now have the Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise Galactic Odyssey Autobot Clone 2 pack and Thunderton made a review for us. In it, he compared to the Titans Return release of one of the clones where we see that there is almost no difference aside from slight changes to material used since this toy is made this year rather than two years ago. Deco wise, this is attempting to be a release for those who did not get the previous release. This is rather different from the Decepticon clones since the ones Hasbro released this year did have differences in the deco compared to their previous release.

Now they look even more like Zoids.

Probably someone returned it when they realized it wasn't worth anything.

Just got the EarthRise Thundercracker and Skywarp set and man am I impressed with the jet modes. so clean. Only thing missing there would be retractible landing gear. But that space is taken up by the noggin under the cockpit.

Blows the classics / universe mold away anyway.

Makes me want to pick up the others.Think will go for Thrust first. Then Dirge and Ramjet. A Sunstorm and Acid Rain Pack would also be kind of nice.

If there's a top figure list of 2020 for the end of the year celebrations here, this mold should be in it.

Don't ER and Siege share the same product codes? If there isn't any distinction from an inventory management perspective, there are any number of ways it could be hitting the shelves now.

Not now, and certainly not out of package, but 10 years down the road, maybe more, it will probably go up in value. I didn't purchase it, but so many wildly variant blister cards of toys on eBay sometimes sell for crazy prices if they are considered "rare" variants.

As I stated before, I had never seen an Astrotrain in Siege Packaging. If not for the ER re-release (which is plentiful now). I probably would have had to pay more than retail to get it, as it (the Siege version), sold out quickly online.

Here's the thing though: due to timing and SIEGE's tail-end distribution woes, a lot of the SIEGE Astrotrain stock ultimately got routed to discount stores. People have been reporting finding him at Ross for $17.99.

One Ross I went to had a single Siege Astrotrain, a couple of Siege Ultra Mags, and a few Siege Screamers. The leaders were all together on a shelf, and the Screamers were found in the various piles the Ross toy section inevitably turns into.

Hmm... I had not heard about them showing up at discount. Interesting, then I guess it's possible that someone is purchasing Siege Astrotrains at Ross , and returning them to Target, for full price?? Diabolical! :-?

Yeah, Ross' toy section is a mess. Luckily WFC boxes are have that "pentagonized rectangle" shape to make them easier to pick out for anyone hunting, not that I had any luck finding any Transformers stuff at Ross when I went. I also checked the neighboring Target for Earthrise Deluxes; no luck. But they did still have 2 SIEGE Hounds! And a SIEGE Megatron, but that's Voyager-class. But at least some ER Astrotrains had made it to the shelves, since they weren't as choked with SIEGE Shockwave as the other Target.

I doubt that, because of the whole receipts thing. My point was,that deep a discount on SIEGE Astrotrain kinda cuts into the eBay resale value. It's like what happened to TR Overlord.

Somebody probably *traded* it for another Leader Class figure. Returned it, got gift card or whatever, bought Doubledealer/Optimus Prime.

That seems like a lot of work to save $30, but of course I've seen Classics figures repackaged into WfC boxes on Walmart shelves, so level of effort isn't the issue.

Actually, they probably returned it for full price since it was Target. I have a Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime I could return unopened for a Prime right now, but I don't need Prime any more than I need GU Prime. I'm just a crack fiend and couldn't resist buying it.

Yup, Siege astrotrain isn't rare by any stretch nor would it be considered a variant.

I bought two Siege Astrotrains from Ross, so now I have three with my Earthrise Astrotrain.

Yup, I would do that when Targets were in Canada. As long as they still have the product in their system, you can exchange it for something of equal value.

I got Runamuck today, and it's not a bad figure at all, I can see why he's so sought after. While I'm not a huge fan of the car mode, the robot is near perfect amd the transformation is a lot of fun. I'll probably never have Runabout (I was NOT expecting that figure to sell out as speed force lightning fast as it did, nor did I realise the Runas were that popular), but I'm at least happy to have one version of this good mould.
