As we reported a few days ago, Amazon.com currently has the Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Apeface up for $24.99, a 20% off deal. And Apeface is still in stock at this moment.

Well, after Apeface, we also have news that the 2 final deluxes from Siege are also now on Amazon. Spinister and Crosshairs are currently listed on Amazon for Pre-order, and as a bonus, Crosshairs is listed as $17.99, a $2 savings (10%). The pre-orders are set to come in stock at the end of December, and if you are someone who was looking for another Transformer to help you cross the free shipping mark with Apeface, you are in luck, as pre-orders count towards the shipping!

You can click on any of the pictures below to take you straight to their Amazon page and place your orders! And let us know in the comments section below what all you pick up, and stay tuned, as hopefully the remaining members of the wave will be up (and maybe at reduced prices) too!

Apinister is Already unavailable. Poop. That wasnt up long. Pre order is open for Crosshairs. I cannot decide though if I really like this rehead of Ironhide as acrosshairs nore than I do having been using Cloud RoadBuster as Crosshairs.

Spinister looks great!! I am going to have a hard time resisting him.....I got lucky and scored Astrotrain in Oregon, at the Starwarstore.com physical location in the Washington Square mall.

He was certainly on my must-have list! If I can find Rung and Ratbat, I will be good....until Earthrise :ic$:

Transforming Astrotrain to spaceship was almost a blast from the past — it’s not as sleek as the G1 model, but he’s fully loaded with an arsenal now!

Good luck on all your hunts this week, TF fans!

I just picked up Spinister at my local Walmart (Rogers, AR). There was only 2 of them so I grabbed one. Crosshairs was there, too (3 of them) but since I have Ironhide and Rachet already, not needing Crosshairs right now. May want to check your local Walmarts.

Heads up: there may be a variant/factory defect out there for WFC: Siege Blue Streak. Of the 5 copies I found at Walmart (52nd Ave. location in Fargo), one of them was missing the silver face paint (see photo).

Got my Micromasters, Battlemasters, and Apeface in a couple nights ago. I like the Micromaster Combiner idea and hope they do more sets like these in the future. Ratbat and Frenzy Rumble are nice additions to the Soundwave fam, even if Rumble’s a little chubby. Rung is pure win, looks great with other IDW-original figures, and Singe looks good with Hairsplitter/Schrute/whatever. Apeface is neat, but I like his jet mode more than I do his gorilla mode.

Can’t wait for Spinister, Crosshairs, and Astrotrain!

In terms of transforming Apeface, I agree. Everytime I do the gorilla mode transformation, I get worried because of the way the neck tabs in. That said, I do prefer the look of the gorilla mode, mostly because I like some of the little touches, like covering the robot face, that I didn't expect them to do. Plus, I love how the gorilla mode has almost as much articulation as a Prime Wars figure :lol:

Apeface’s ape mode sounds great! Always wanted more articulation in the figure.

I may wait to hunt Rung and the Micromasters down, but I hope I see them soon!

Astrotrain’s articulation & accessories are great, as expected. I had a lot of fun with his transformations too.

ended up messing around with siege voyager Prime and some of his other figures, and it's pretty cool how different and yet how similar these all can be.

SS Prime is cooler cause Steampunk look, classics is the most fun, PotP has the best head, and Siege is the best all around. Still a fantastic voyager

Siege is my favourite Prime. But I do like classics just because it was a slightly different take on the truck and the transformation is simple fun. Plus I have the toy accurate one with those beautiful chromed legs.

SURPRISE DOUBLE FEATURE! :michaelbay:

Seeing as I've managed to acquire a couple Siegekers, I thought I'd give my thoughts on the mold overall.

Image

Honestly, I feel like the seeker mold may well actually be my dark horse of the Siege line. I was thoroughly underwhelmed by it at first, but it's so much better in hand. If Galaxy Prime didn't exist, it may well be my favourite Siege mold. (Granted, I haven't dipped too thoroughly into Siege as a whole so take that as you will.)

Image

Starscream is probably the weaker of the two. Aside from having the wrong head, he doesn't wear the mold as well imo. He's very grey, like, turn him around and he could blend in with a concrete wall.

I must have a later run of the figure, as he has the G1 Decepticon symbols, and his chest rarely pops off.

Image

Thundercracker is great. The blue is fantastic, and really makes the mold pop. The details are clearer and even the battle damage looks nicer. Again, he had the wrong head but, I can fix that if I'm feeling brave.

AdDiTionAl SiEge tHouGhTs

Now that Siege is coming to a close, I wanna kinda reflect on the line as a whole. Siege was pretty good. There was definitely a marked step up in quality from the latter half of Prime Wars. Plastic feels nicer, Figures feel denser, and there have been some fun little engineering tricks that have been worked in. Obviously, the TF team has a higher budget to play with now. If the concessions made in TR and POTP were made so we could get the current standard then I'm happy.

However, If I were to offer one criticism, then it would be this. Siege, I feel, lacked a unified aesthetic. And what I mean by that is that while Siege has some clear design cues, the way and amount they were actually used varies from figure to figure. For example, I feel like say, the Seekers, and like, Prowl, you can conceivably believe from different lines. I'm not surprised to hear that they're the battle damage for Earthrise, as I feel like they never fully committed to it any way. Kind of a shame too, as I feel like using the grittier, more battle worn look might have helped out some of the blander molds like Prowl, Red Alert or Megatron.

In any case, I'm glad Siege happened, and I'm interested in what Earthrise has in store.

The head swap for Thundercracker and Starscream is actually a piece of cake. With no glue on either head, it’s just a matter of removing the screw and separating the front and back halves. A small flathead screwdriver can help with this, using small twisting motions to pry them apart. If you’re careful, you can get them both apart without too much effort or scratch marks. I think I got both mine apart with just my fingernails. Just be careful with the light-pipe plastic as translucent plastic tends to be weaker.

Isn't just the dirt marks on Hoist, though?

I finally got Omega today and he's a great figure. Hips sound a bit too heavy, but otherwise he's perfect. Definitely worth picking up in my opinion
