We have some Transformers Seige War For Cybertron news for you today. Rob Springer found some listings on the Walgreens computer. Firstly, we see the War for Cybertron Siege assortment, which has a retail price of $17.99 USD. This is not the MSRP, this is simply what Walgreens chooses to sell them for in their store.

There is also a listing for deluxe Ratchet and this one is both outside the assortment and priced at $19.99. This gives a pretty good hint that like Wreck Gar, who was also singled out on the Walgreens database, Ratchet will be an exclusive figure.

We also see Walgreen's cost for these figures, which is over $13, meaning they are making less than $5 per deluxe sold at full price.

Medical Officer Ratchet being a pharmacy store exclusive is all kinds of apropos.

I LOL'ed to this ... to which I had to explain to my wife while I'm working on my laptop right now doing Seibertron stuff while she's watching "The Real Housewives of Some County I Could Care Less About", who probably didn't appreciate the irony of this as much as we do. This is pretty funny if you think about it. Thanks for pointing out something laugh worthy, Sabrblade. :)

Expected Arrival 9/29...? That can't be right, can it?

Oh great, more Walgreens exclusives that will be seen by all 2 people who are insanely lucky to find them in store, just like wreck-gar :BANG_HEAD: . Sad thing is that it's a character I've been wanting for a very long time.

I wouldn't complain normally... you know if we could actually find the exclusives where they should be in stores. :BANG_HEAD:

It is not right.

Wreck gar was never found in US stores, never. He will be part of their massive holiday stocking. Just wait, he is sure to get there since there is no other US retailer Hasbro is shipping these to. And the same will happen with Ratchet one year from now.

Really? I could have swore that someone said they found it on the west coast back on the potpie forums. Must be my faulty memories. :HEADHURTS:

Also, holiday stocking? Hmm, wasn't exactly expecting that to be the time that Wreck-Gar shows up. I was expecting late July, early September. Oh well. Thanks for the heads up. ;)^

That's not even fair. Wreck-Gar should only just now start showing up. Most Walgreen's exclusives show up in bulk at some point, just like the Clone set which was widely available. You'll have your chance. Wreck-Gar is most likely "Christmas" stock and should be widely available soon.

It's too bad Hasbro didn't think of this for Walgreens back during Combiner Wars. It would have made getting that Ratchet retool/redeco a LOT less painful for many fans. You either had to invest almost $200 for a Japanese boxset release or you had to spend the money to attend a convention and go to a special class with limited seating or buy one of the leftovers on site.

I legitimately didn't know that Wreck-Gar was supposed to come out around now. :HEADHURTS: I'm not actually sure where the idea of them coming out earlier, I believe the only thing that pointed to an early release was the online Walgreens listing which said it was already in stock. Next time, I'll make sure not to instantly take that at face value. I think I need to call it tonight, as now I need to rethink a few other things I hopefully didn't confuse. Thanks again, guys & sorry for being rather negative. #-o

I'd actually argue a lightbar isn't a must. Ratchet's on Cybertron, acting as a field medic. He's not an ambulance yet. Save some money for more medical tools and maybe an alternate head? One for Cartoon, one for comics would be nice

That settles it. I didnt want to buy another Ironhide until I knew Ratchet was coming. Now I know. Guess I can retire the Desent into Evil pair as soon as Ratchet comes out

Part of me kinda wants this to be the UW Ratchet released by Hasbro as an exclusive just for the people I know still want one, even though I don't really feel I want or need a combining Ratchet myself, but I feel like it's more likely going to be from Siege Ironhide instead. Guess we don't need to worry about what Ironhide's alternate head tooling is...(as if it were ever a question, really)

I'll have to see what this guy looks like to see if I want him. I'm already intending to grab Ironhide, and I don't like having to justify buying repaints with new heads, but I don't already have a Ratchet figure that I like, so...yeah, it'll depend on what he looks like and what he comes with, really. They had better give him a new weapon though, the field medic doesn't need a rocket launching hammer nor would it really be in character for him to have one.

Also starrhero, I think you might have been confused partially because one or more TF-selling sites, I think at least Robotkingdom, put up preorders for Wreck-Gar towards the start of summer saying he'd start shipping in August, so some people assumed he'd show up at retail around the same time.

I wanrt to ay Wreck Gar showed up in Canada? whee he is an exclusive for someone else (gamestop?) so that may be why folks thought he was out

Yeah, the Canadian Gamestop equivalent (EB Games, I think? I'm not Canadian, don't quote me on that) has Wreck-Gar already, just how like Optimal Optimus is actually out at retail there as well.

Given that those two are the only PotP figures left on my list that I want, and that Primal is the figure I've been looking forward to the most in that whole line, I'm paying very close attention (and am still slightly upset about the lack of munkky, but that's not for this thread).

Overall, point is, thinking Wreck-Gar is out/is supposed to be out at Walgreens already is a fairly easy mistake to make, given the circumstances.

So a rachet is coming eh? Makes sense, now will he come with the same accessories or will he have some new stuff? Let the speculation begin I say.

I wonder how Hasbro will choose to paint up Ratchet's head for this Siege iteration. Will it be a white helmet with a black crest like the original Cartoon? A red helmet with a white crest like the original Marvel comics (and IDW comics)? A white helmet with a red crest like more recent iterations of the character (Animated, Prime, Cyberverse, etc.)? They can't really fall back on the original toy for this, obviously. So many possibilities.

Looks like there will still be a Generations Ratchet gap in my collection. Stupid Exclusives

You know, it would have been an incredible troll job of the original toys if they would have made an option to not transform the head on the siege versions and leave a little face sticker behind the windshield.
