The tail enders are usually the toughest to find so it's good to know that they these have been found at a big box store. Transformers War For Cybertron Siege Battle Masters Singe and Rung have been found at Target for $5.99. The specific sighting is from jerichoholic99 who found them in Lexington, Kentucky and posted them on the TFW2005 message boards.
Hopefully that means your local Target will get it too. Singe is a rather important Battle Mastrer since you need him to complete the G1 Targetmaster Spinister.

If you have found them, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

My area Target had them too. Rung is a rather important Battle Master since he is a literal god.

A buddy of mine went to some kind of liquidation sale last week and picked up 16 Omega Supreme's for 20 a piece and 11 Power of the Primes Rodimus Unicronus'. Didn't say how much for the Rodimus'

:MAXIMAL:


Was that the Hasbro warehouse sale?

Found both at the Target in Jackson, Tennessee purely by luck--my wife sent me back out again to pick up an air mattress for holiday travel. Sporting goods was right next to toys... boom!

They still had a Singe, but I got the last Rung :-D

Alrighty, so I've been searching for answer everywhere I could think of but here for this question- Where is the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron? It's supposed to be an Amazon exclusive, but I can't find it on the store anymore. Which sucks for me, coz Skywarp is the last Siege toy really want to own.

Sorry to say it probably won't be back in-stock. You might get lucky and find it for a reasonable price once the Siege hoopla dies off.

It sold out the day before Black Friday and then a week after it flickered back in stock a few times saying that it would be shipped around the 17th of January and late February. I was lucky to order one on the 12th of December and it says it will be delivered on the 9th of January (it started as the 17th and has been dropping)? I really hope that they follow through with it. Just keep a close eye on it, here is the link to it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NZ86GJP?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image. I would say that it may show back up around February.

If you fear missing out, here is what you have to do. Here is the set on amazon.ca https://www.amazon.ca/Transformers-Gene ... 355&sr=8-1.

Google a mail forwarding service that you can ship it to in canada and who will then ship to you. Shipping would be free within canada, you'd just pay shipping to you and a cut for the service.

They won't ship to the US at all?

So I noticed something odd while I was filling away my new bots' instructions. Spinister's is rocking the Autobot deco :shock:

Image

I gave all my Siege manuals a quick flip through and it's the only one that I have that is crossing faction lines.

Spinister is an awesome figure. The bot is amazingly tall and sleek. Much taller than the standard Autobot deluxe, taller than both Ironhide and Impactor just by a little. Transformation is involved and it ends up being a very cool attack helicopter. I found the faux cockpit leg to peg in just fine, but works better if you flip the hip joint/section 180°. All the torso movement is a super clever way to deal with all the fuselage bits.

While on the subject of "caboose wave" 'Cons - Apeface is also a great figure. Easily in the top 10 of Siege figures. I've read a lot of concerns and negatives and I feel they're all overblown, except for the peg breakage. I can see how that's going to be a problem and will need to be modded in one way or another.

I did find transformation was a little intimidating at first (even though I did a lot of research), but I figured it all out without help and now makes complete sense. Good thing as the instructions really are as bad as everyone says. All modes peg together tight in logical ways that aren't hard to figure out (lots of research may have helped). Plenty of articulation and I dig the white plastic as it's so much harder and sharper than expected and feels just like the plastics used line wide.

The gun is loose in the ports except the hands, but hasn't fallen out during play. My opinion is that the ports are probably a little big for the shield, but oddly not it's primary peg hole.

It's a solid, tight, dense brick of figure that , to me, perfectly represents the character. Definitely one of the best of the line.

These two look very good together and I'm still shocked with how tall Spinister is.

I got adventurous and decided to mod Apeface's rear peg hole. Full disclosure I got the idea from the TFW Apeface thread, but I can elaborate on the details.

Because I lack a micrometer, I had to make a few assumptions. I assumed the standard peg/hole size on Apeface is 5mm, so before I committed to any modding I did some testing first. Apeface's gun really only pegs tightly into the fist hole and is pretty loose everywhere else. I also found that the gun while still a little loose, but tighter in the rear peg hole than the others. Apeface's shield/tailfin is only overly tight in the peg hole on the back used for ape and jet mode, but pegs everywhere else just fine. Additionally I test fit the shield on several other Siege figures and found that it pegged perfectly fine. At this point I feel it's safe to assume that the shield peg is 5mm, but the hole is slightly too small.

TL;DR: The damn hole is too small - get a nice and sharp 13/64 (or 5mm) drill bit and hand drill the hole out. About midway through you may need to use some pliers or hand drill as the going gets tough. After a small amount of plastic was removed, I just rotated the bit back and forth with a little bit of a wiggle to remove any remaining burrs I created and to smooth out the hole. Be careful of the screw at the bottom of the hole as the bit likes to catch on it.

Now the shield slides in and out with no issues and still pegs onto the arms nice and snug. This is why I didn't sand the peg. As a bonus the peg hole doesn't even look like it's been touched.

Aren't they packed with the Micromaster Battle Squad? Those have already hit retail. There weren't any Ratbats on the peg, but I assumed someone had beaten me to them.

Ah. So I will see those... never then. Good to know. At least I found a Wild Rung

They only just recently came out, I wouldn't lose hope yet. Worst-case scenario, you can always pay three times MSRP to get them from eBay.

STILL having trouble getting Apeface's ape face to transform without other parts pulling loose? Then try using Death's handy-dandy guide to getting Apeface's ape face into ape mode!

All of the parts of the upper body are kind of linked together, so if one is out of alignment, none of them will behave. So start by tabbing the black 'shin' portions of the robot into the ape chest:
Image

This will put the portions of the ape neck fringe into position so they will tab in more easily with the wedge-shaped portion of the neck fringe, connected to the nose cone:
Image

Angle the nose cone back, using your mortal finger stumps to hold the neck fringe portions in place so they don't untab. Also use your thumb to brace the black chest portions and keep them tabbed in as well. If one section gets pulled on, it can untab the other sections!
Image

Now you can unfold the ape head section from beneath the nose cone using your free hand. Fold it down. There are two small notches in the last section of the neck flap. Those should hook into two small tabs in the neck fringe as pictured:
Image

On the BACK of the neck flap is a small tab just above the ape head. And the hinge of the nose cone has a matching notch. Those will eventually need to push together, and that is the main thing that will keep the head locked into place:
Image

While still keeping everything braced in place with your fingers, take the dual hinge portion of the ape neck flap, and push the tab behind the neck flap into the notch on the nose cone hinge. You should feel it catch and lock into place. Keep the neck flap held down while doing this. This motion should PULL the notches and hooks at the front of the neck into place so there are no visible gaps. If any other sections (the black chest portions or behind the neck fringe) become untabbed, re-tab them in and start over. You WILL eventually get them all to stay tabbed, and get those neck flap tabs/grooves snapped in.

Found Rung and Singe today. Gotta say, Rung's a decent little figure. Only thing I wish he had is knees. Otherwise he's great. Singe is decent enough, but since I didn't get Skywarp's three pack, I didn't get both Targetmasters for Spinister. Oh well, not a major thing for me

Hey guys I don't know if this is newsworthy or not, so I didn't send it into the news posts. However my local Target is now clearancing out the rainmakers oh, I just bought the three pack set for 56 bucks. If anybody's been putting these off like I have, now is the time to jump.
