Seibertron.com forum member and frequent contributor, chuckdawg1999, has brought us a video review of the latest and last wave of Battle Masters from the Transformers Generations: War for Cybertron Trilogy - Siege line, due out by the end of 2019! One of the featured figures is Singe, another classic G1 Targetmaster partner for Spinister, along with Shrute (née Hairsplitter), who was available in the Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron Multipack, an Amazon.com exclusive released earlier this year. Deluxe Class Spinister himself will be showing up any time now in the final Deluxe Class wave for Siege. Our old pal Chuck shows off Battle Master Singe compared to his Autobot mold mate Firedrive, noting the paint differences and new "blast effects," redecoed in green from Battle Master Aimless. The other new figure is none other than Rung, a newer Transformers character who debuted in IDW's Transformers comics from over the past decade and a half. This is an all new mold, not shared with any other Battle Master, and the face sculpt is an amazing likeness to the character as portrayed in the IDW comic books. Enjoy Chuck's video below:

I'm willing to agree with this. I am also willing to say that Artfire will be a selects release or exclusive of some sort


So far, most molds have seen a retool being released, some of them being "legacy retools" (based on the original G1 toys. So Sideswipe into Sunstreaker will not happen, Red Alert already fills that role). I can see this being continued in Earthrise, so Inferno and Trailbreaker will almost definitely happen, with Exhaust (Wheeljack) and Hubcap (Cliffjumper) as more than decent bonuses. :)

That said, with Barricade as a "Decepticon Prowl made out of Smokescreen", this presents a grand opportunity to be cheeky and make a "(G2) Decepticon Smokescreen out of Prowl":

Forget about Exhaust, the Marlboro Bot. It's time for Slicer!

Exhaust has the cooler head though, I would prefer him over Slicer personally not that I'm opposed to them making a Slicer since he's cool to.

Slicer would be easier for Hasbro and Takara to do, just because it's a straight up repaint. Marlboro is a little tougher, not only because it requires a head retool, but also because they have to strike a delicate balance between the original Diaclone "Marlboro Wheeljack" deco and what is legally allowed in Hasbro markets, given that the original deco is trademarked by Philip Morris, and that it is a "children's toy" that references tobacco products. Takara had a HELL of a time releasing Masterpiece Exhaust a few years ago, and selling it outside of Japan was even more of a hassle for third party sellers like TFSource and BBTS.

Yeah, after that fiasco, I'd really be surprised if Hasbro would ever touch another Exhaust toy with a ten foot pole.

That was before the incident, though. Minds may have changed since then.

I really want a Slicer. That would be awesome to get another more obscure character, and we really need to start getting more Action Masters in the mainline as updates

Add my vote for those that would like to see Slicer from Wheeljack.

Because I have Apeface pre-ordered on there, and haven't actually gotten any notification saying it's cancelled, but I'm also worried they may end up just not sending out copies to people who pre-ordered with them


I wouldn't be too worried yet. This happened before on something transformers that I pre-ordered from them, but I don't remember which one. The page was eventually restored and I ended up getting whichever one it was on time. I would keep an eye on the ship date (mine says November 15th release, arriving November 17th.) If they miss that date, then I would pre-order from Hasbro Pulse if you have a premium membership, or add something else you would end up buying anyway to get above $70 for free shipping.

Alright, fair enough. The only other time I've ordered anything from Amazon was Punch/Counterpunch so I was just concerned, but thanks for the quick reply ;)^


So I just cancelled my Spinster and Crosshairs pre-order with Amazon in favor of Hasbro Pulse, since Pulse is saying ready to ship December 1st, and Amazon says January 1st.

However, I did notice something weird with the Amazon pre-order for Apeface. No, the Amazon Listing isn't fixed and still says page not found, and according to Amazon I'll still be getting him on November 19th.

I noticed that according to the original pre-order, they only had him as $24.99 instead of $29.99. I wonder if that has something to do with them removing his Listing from their site? In any case, I guess next week will tell if I'm going to be abandoning the Amazon order for Hasbro Pulse on Apeface as well, or if Amazon will come through, even without a current Listing.


Okay, so even though Amazon's Listing for Apeface is currently gone, and in my order history they have him priced at $24.99 instead of $29.99, I did just get my ship notification and should have him tomorrow. :shock:

The listing is up for me and I just ordered him for $24.99. As you can see from the snippet, it says release date is tomorrow! Needless to say I cancelled my Pulse pre-order...

Awesome! I was able to find the listing on Amazon.com thanks to your tip! The price is still $24.99, advertised as marked down from $29.99. I put in my order and it should be here in a few days thanks to free 2-Day shipping with Amazon Prime. I've canceled my Hasbro Pulse order now too. I've got Rung and Singe coming from BBTS and got Rumble, Ratbat, Direct Hit, and Power Punch from TFSource earlier this week. I just have to wait now for Hasbro Pulse to fulfill my preorders for Astrotain, Crosshairs, and Spinister.

I'm not a big Amazon guy, but I'm also not so naive as to think that this'll actually show up in my local stores. I've been burned too much by final waves not showing up in stores, forcing me to scrounge for everyone else's leftovers at inflated prices online. I still haven't bitten the bullet on TR Misfire and Twintwist.

NICE! The price change was also applied to my preorder from several months ago, and now it’s literally waiting for me when I get home. I mean honestly, how are the others toy stores going to compete against Amazon now with prime shipping and price discounts on release dates?

Great, splendid..... Is there a link to a discounted Spinister at Amazon?

That's the last Seige figure I need this year.
