    Not quite since the figures were available only at this event where you also had to but tickets to assist. It's still not in any brick & mortar stores. Something similar happened here in Peru when last year Hasbro offered Siege Shockwave and Ultra Magnus at a Comic event here in Lima before any other stores. After some weeks they finally hit shelves.

    Huh. Makes sense, I did wonder why Astrotrain was in WFC Siege when he has earth modes.

    Glad to see a packaged sample of Astrotrain. Seems like we passed the point where Siege is being restocked in the US back before Christmas so it’ll be nice to have a chance at this figure.

    I just realized something. If you already own Siege Astrotrain, you'll probaby have to buy Astrotrain again to complete the Transformers universe map... Not cool. :(

    You do realize there are Transformers fans outside of the US, right?

    That is the situation I am in, which means to complete the map I will have to spend $50 for a piece of cardboard. :(  (groan)

    I'm just sick and tired of seeing this stuff all over and I cant get one figure. So it's not so much HASBLO fault but the fault lies in retailers to. And i live in west Virginia which might as well be a third world country

    I like the Earthrise packaging, cool tones are a rarity in Transformers packaging I think.
