He's shown up at online retailers, we've had video reviews but now we finally have a sighting of the original Cybertronian ape himself, Siege Apeface! Seibertronian D-Maximal_Primal found him at a Targét in Robinson, Pennsylvania. Yours truly found him the same day at a Walmart in Centerville, Utah. Included below is D-Max's photo proof and unboxed figure, and I've included some comparison photos with my own G1 Apeface, and his Titans Return incarnation. While you're enjoying this Apefacefest, why not check out Seibertron's own, high-quality galleries of the triple-changer Horrorcon by clicking here?

Good find, I found him over the weekend at two Targets where I am at in Virginia. I posted that under the Sightings Forum for Virginia.

Walmarts are carrying him too. Spotted one in Kentucky last week.

I thought Apeface had been out for a while, saw him at Walmart yesterday. I fear I won't be seeing Astrotrain soon though as stores in my area are overstocked with Leaders. Something I haven't seen in years

I got him at Walmart a few days ago. I put the TR head on him, looks much better.

I found him day before Thanksgiving at Target... One day after I finally opened the one I got from Amazon. Same Target has also had the new micromasters, Spinister, and Crosshairs, but no new battlemasters.

I picked up mine on 11/30/19. I thought I was late!! I've seen like 10 of them in Baltimore, MD since then.

I've not seen any of the new wave besides him, though.

You guys SERIOUSLY need a general news forum like TFW. Relying on people to fill out a form for sightings or having people contact news crew is just not working for you.

This dude, like most of your sightings, has been out for weeks.

This.

The way news is handled is a train wreck on here and it’s probably the same reason news is sometimes a week or two behind other sites

Is there anything more useless than sightings news stories though? "I'm the first one to find Botbots series 4 in a Target in Arizona!" Good for you? I don't live in Arizona, so who cares?

Sightings are just taking "first" comments in the replies and making them into a post.

I did, and it is quite hilarious. I love teeth on a jet like this.

I'm super glad I didn't take many of the first Apeface impressions to heart, he is really fun. Still enjoying just swinging him from mode to mode

So I've been out of the loop on Transformers toys for a little while, but I saw this line in the store the other day and I was curious, is the toyline based on any current media (a new game, comic, etc.) or is it just a standalone toyline inspired by War for Cyberton?

It's its own new thing, telling its own story about the last day before the Ark launched off of Cybertron, taking its main inspiration from the first episode of the G1 cartoon, in which the characters had Cybertronian altmodes but retained the same robot modes that they would continue to have on Earth. The second line of the trilogy, Earthrise, will likewise tell its own story about the Ark's journey through space.

The new IDW comics have used designs based on the Siege toyline, but are mostly telling their own pre-war story. Meanwhile, a new Netflix series is being created for the War for Cybertron Trilogy toylines, with Season 1 based on the Siege line, while Season 2 will be based on the Earthrise line.

Unhelpful to these matters is how this Trilogy is titled "War for Cybertron", but is otherwise completely unrelated to the old 2010 video game of the same name.
