    I'm confused - what's the regular 10% discount?

    If you have a Walgreens, check there. They have the Deluxew on sale, and it includes the Refraktor wave.

    Does it work on preorders?

    This is a tough call. Who do you think will be easier to find in January or February? I ask because you could theoretically pick one up now and the other later.

    Late wave figures tend to be under ordered, harder to get and become pricier in the aftermarket. There’s a possibility that might happen to Apeface who got an initial lukewarm response from fans but might become a “hidden gem” in the future.

    Sideswipe is a better figure though because the mold is great and we’re talking about a season 1 A-list Autobot. Apeface is a lovable weirdo, who’s mostly cool because no one remembers him.

    Sideswipe might be more likely to shelfwarm online too? So it’ll be easier to get (and at a discount) in the future. Maybe?

    Tough call... :(

    yes, the Hasbro black Friday promo codes (for either 10% or 20% off) do work on pre-orders.

    however, I still don't understand how he's getting 30% off, cuz those 2 codes aren't actually stackable. is there another "10% regular discount" that he mentions that is stackable??

    go for apeface! Bigger and more fun to play around with imo.

    do not sand the peg or you will have issues pegging it into other spots on him. Sand a bit out of the peg hole on the back near the rear canopy. This will open it up and help prevent it getting stuck. Also, will allow you to peg the shield onto the canopy and raise and lower together.

    besides, I believe sideswipe is being packed with the new wave 5 deluxes so he will be hitting shelves again soon.

    Hmm. No clue. I can’t even use the 20% discount because I’m not a Hasbro pulse premium member, which is weird because I thought I was after I bought Unicron.

    This last bunch of Siege figures (Spinister, Astrotrain, Apeface) all seem good overall but I feel like they all have some compromised alt modes. Not a deal-breaker, but wish they could have got some more time in the oven.

    Look at their wiki entries. Their beast modes are based on them

    I have Walgreens and heard they had him but checked and it was gone. I only found Ratchet and Brunts.

    Idk.

    Yeah it is. Especially since Apeface went up a dollar from yesterday, an indicator that he might become rarer as time goes on. I could assume Sideswipe will be available, based on first waves of other TF CHUG lines, but Apeface could become limited like Misfire from TR. I do have Red alert though, so Sideswipe isnt a new mold for me.

    They're not stackable? I thought they were.

    I thought Hound and Cog are packed with Spinister / Crosshairs.

    There is no way that we can really advise you.. you need to look at reviews to get an idea of which you'd prefer.

    For example, lots of love for Apeface, and for me, he's a absolute pass as I just don't find that he fits well with the rest of the Siege line, he's a brick and lacks paint for the details and I just don't like the jaws thing.

    Sideswipe I love, BUT... (of course there's a but) his weapons sucks (there a few Deluxes that Hasbro really was cheap and lazy for the weapons), I had to get the Nonnef (3rd party) ones to find it to look right, and I still ended up painting the gun.
