The War for Cybertron: Earthrise toy line is highly anticipated, even though only the first wave of figures has been officially revealed. Though they were due to hit retail later this quarter, Seibertronian TFfangeek has already found the Micromaster packs at a Target in Portland, Oregon! These two packs contain Decepticons Bombshock and Growl, and Autobots Daddy-O and Trip Up. This marks the first sighting of any Earthrise figures in the United States so hopefully, the rest of the first wave won't be far behind.

I really hope deluxes hit next. Ironworks is going to be a great addition to the Autobot cities that fans create. Plus, I could definitely see fans with a lot more creativity than me make really impressive build sites using multiple Ironworks figures

I'm just hoping that the last wave of Siege micro/battle masters don't get skipped at retail.

I'm concerned about Ratbat and Rumble. I haven't seen them on shelves anywhere. Amazon has had the Battle Squad in and out of stock for weeks, but the Spy Patrol still doesnt even have a listing.

We've had the Ratbat/Rumble set on shelves at both Walmart and Target for a month and a half now here in Arkansas so hoping that doesn't mean your location skipped on them if you haven't seen them yet.

It feels like every year a lot of us are still unable to find late releases from the previous year's line, when the new year's line starts showing up instead. It's really frustrating.

So... what would it take to get one of those sent to Kentucky? :-D

Alas, they are no more. After Christmas, most of the Siege items got wiped out. Now we have bare shelves awaiting whatever the heck it is they have in the back that they keep taking forever to get out onto the shelves.

I haven't even seen the last of the seige items locally yet. I finally broke down and ordered Astrotrain from amazon, but yeah, I'm looking for the ratbat set still as well.

Meanwhile, one of my local Targets stocked up on older figures, the lion's share being Blackjack & Hyperdrive(!). I haven't even seen Powertrain & Highjump, and I want those the most, my first transformers back in the day alongside Mudslinger and Tote :(

Even though I like the thrill of the hunt more, I may have to go there. Walmart doesn't stock anything below Deluxe, so I may have to do my wife some extra favors...

The reL question is not that they have been stocked, but did it check out? someone saidbthey are the same DCPI, hopefully that means they cant be locked down, but we did see that with Megs when TC hit Early


Like the others, i have yet to see Battle Patrol or Soundwave's other two cassettes.

Normally I'd be a little upset since Siege Astrotrain and the last wave of Siege Battlemasters (Rung and Singe) haven't even had a mass release yet, (a few isolated sightings is not a mass release) but since I guess they are slated for re-releases through Earthrise, that will be the way most of us get them.

Were Singe and Rung slated for re-release? Astrotrain and Smashdown are the only ones I recall.

Not sure about Singe, but I'm fairly certain I read somewhere that Rung was going to be re-released in Earthrise as well.

This site has a pre-order for it....

Only Rung.

Neat they are showing up. I'm not expecting to see them for a couple months, and I won't be actively hunting or even buying until April anyway

I thought I was the first to report on this, oh well, it does not matter who is first. What matters most is that the Earthrise Transformers figures are arriving in the U.S. :D

Does anyone else think that it's extremely ironic or coincidental that the Earthrise Transformers showed up in Portland, Oregon? I mean, seriously! That's kind of crazy and some extremely well thought out marketing for fans if Transformers Earthrise did indeed first show up in Portland, Oregon of all places ... you know, the exact place where Transformers touched down back in 1984.

To quote Sherlock: "The universe is rarely so lazy" ;) That said, I have no idea, but I think it'd be incredibily fun if Hasbro had planned that
