That's right folks thanks to our fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 we have a video of the much anticipated War for Cybertron Siege Ratchet! Fans have been abuzz over this redux of the Siege Ironhide mold with his clever medbay mode and head crest which may be spot on for some, or completely wrong for others. Like him or love him most fans agree that Ratchet is one of the classic G1 pantheon and is a welcome addition to the Siege roster. Plus with all the battle damage deco's and these Weaponizers exploding all over the place it's about time we get someone on the battlefield who knows his way around a box of bandages.

Is your shelf ready for the original Transformers 'doc'? Who's the first Micromaster in your collection to visit his medbay mode? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

From Chuckdawg1999's post:
"The Doctor is in the HOUSE! Siege Ratchet is fantastic G1 inspired update to the classic character. Retooled from Ironhide Ratchet features a few new accessories including a wrench! Set to be a Walgreens exclusive this is definitely worth the pick-up."

Same with my neck of the woods, Canada really shit the bed when it comes to Siege. TRU is way behind. I know Americans may think our stocked shelves look fun, but its easy to have full shelves when its old product no one in interested in buying.

Titans Return and POTP were slightly quicker but Siege is the king of shelf-warming anything that isn't Optimus and Megatron.

If you are searching Walmart for Jetfire, don't just limit your search to the Transformers section.


One of my Walmart's had them in the Jurassic park section.

Oh man, my TRUs have seas of Megatrons. Only Optimus figures are moving.

How did you find Ratchet on Ebay? I have been watching for a while and all I can find are the silly TCG Cards

In my neck of the wood (Markham, Ontario). The selfwarming figures are Megatron, Skytread, Shockwave in Wave 1, Wave 2 is only slowly starting to appear more regularly but I see many Chromia with no other bots next to the fembot. I got my Starscream a month ago and I still haven't found any Soundwave. It's really tough this year to hunt for TF. I used to be able to get 90% of my TF at Toys R Us, and often on sale. This year, maybe 25-30% comes from TRU. I have to get it at Walmart, I don't see the figures at TRU for me to do returns after 90 days!

Wish I'd have known this when I ran to Wal-Mart earlier #-o I did a quick once through then checked the top shelves and didn't find him. But, they apparently reorganized, so hopefully they should be stocking everything again next week

By some miracle, Spokane stores are getting their act together with resupplying their toy departments. In the last five days I've encountered the latest waves of Studio Series, Siege, and Cyberverse, INCLUDING store exclusives!

On that note, buy Siege Jetfire. Just. Do. It.

i would if i have extra fund. 160$ is not something that i can leisurely drop on a single figure, on my current situation, unfortunately.

I've come to realize how broken Target's stock notification is online. I hit the button when we first reported the Rain Makers were in stock there since it was gone when I checked, but it just randomly emails me to say it's back in stock, sometimes only minutes after I hit the button. Hopefully I'll either catch it online or find it in the store.

Also those seemingly finished Spinister stock photos. :x

Hm nope. I liked Spinister a lot in the Marvel UK comics but I don't care for this figure. I not sure why. He's never had the best design anyways but the body looks boring and the chopper kibble at back (particularly the tail end) just looks bad to me. Was never fond of his colour layout either. Easy pass.

(still can't figure out what they were thinking with that Rumble either)

"It appears to be a robot of unknown classification.

With his size and probable strength, he will make an excellent Decepticon!"

Yay, I finally have Siege Skyfire! (No thanks to you, Amazon!)

Now, lets find out if he's worth it.

The more I see of spinister, the more I like him. Find it’s Cool he’s getting his own mould.. more deceptions are always welcome.. choppers are awesome... my main criticism is that it’s odd in a line with target masters as a main component, he isn’t being shipped with them. I like his weapons, but I’m guessing his original target asters might be candidates for a battlemaster pack.

One of them is getting released later in the Battlemaster line, Singe is part of the same wave as Rung.

Hairsplitter is part of Skywarp's Amazon exclusive set under the new name Shrute

I know this, but I can't pull it up in the search results, even as a Sold Listing. All I get is the cards

I think I overreacted to the "not sold at this store" online reporting. My local Target has a shelf label for the Rainmakers, even though the website describes the product as "not sold at this store." I guess the distribution is just really uneven?

I took a long drive to get mine. I probably wouldn't do that again, assuming it will be more widely available over the next few months.

My fear was going to be you wouldn't be able to find Refractor because everyone was going to buy all three from the case to make the camera, which I don't hold that against anyone, because I would do the same, but that's what's been happening locally. I've seen his case mates in a couple of stores, otherwise every store seems to be stocking up on wave one. In fact those sames stores that I found Brunt and Red Alert, then got in fresh stock of wave 1.

When I was asked If I found everything alright, I told them no.
When I was asked what I was looking for I told them, The new wave of Transformers, you keep restocking the old one.
To that the response was a blank look and "oh"
