    Was Rung and Singe even released under Siege? I cannot find them on ebay or any shop.

    They were. Around December they showed up. I had a target in Iowa that had around 10 of them. That’s how I got mine. It was the day after Christmas

    They'll do a rerelease (with a repaint on the way) of this lame novelty Rung figure, but not of the Ratbat/Frenzy set?

    I just ordered them off eBay for $20. Would like to see them rerelease Singe though.

    Is it wrong that I want Slitherfang in triplicate over Rung?

    AKA what do you do with Multiple Rungs when it comes down to it? Slitherfang has a lot of personality to it for being a generic robot snake.

    I get that not everyone will like Slitherfang.
    For anyone who isn't aware, he's an update of an unreleased concept from Japanese Headmasters, turning him into a shield/ramp instead of a head, and is a pretty cool update for such an obscure figure.

    Sold as a pair from In Demand Toys, but other sites may have them separate. I'm hoping my usual sites (TCP, BBTS) will list them individually.

    I found a Siege Rung so I'll definitely be looking for Slitherfang as a stand alone preorder. But since I'm getting three Judges and three Alicons, maybe I'll get a trio of snakes too!

    I like how Rung's artwork is the same just now he happens to be on Earth.


    Well catz has got himself a inside source on what they're going to release, but not necessarily on how they're going to release what. Some things are still subject to change, so don't give up hope for another run down the road.

    Gotta admit, I want Slitherfangs just for the blast effect. I really wish Hasbro would just release a box of the blast effects already.

    Seeing hard-to-find Siege toys available for those who missed them: :) 

    Realizing you'll have to buy toys you already own to complete the universe map: :(

    For the most part, I think it\'s good that Hasbro is rereleasing figures from Siege that were really hard to find during that time (Astrotrain, Smashdown, and now Rung). However, in doing this they are now making it much harder for people to find the new members of those assortments (such as Optimus Prime or Soundbarrier). Hopefully Hasbro becomes more aware of this and possibly makes the case assortments (particularly within the Battlemaster assortment) more more evenly packed. A good example of this being with Studio Series Cogman. The TLK release of him in the US was very hard (if not impossible) to find, and while rereleasing him in a Studio Series was a good choice, in doing so they made his wavemates, Shatter and Scrapmetal, more difficult to find. In other words, these rereleases are very good ideas though I feel they should’ve been executed a little better.

    Great! Now I can miss out on Rung again after they ship 10 of him to one Target in Iowa and all the online preorders are sold out before they're even posted...
