Me neither. Seen Astrotrain I mean.
@KnightHawkke Well then...I guess he has a theme song. Lol
I just grabbed a Hot Rod Patrol set from that same Target. Here’s a couple things I noticed upon opening them...
1. The “map piece” is part of the packaging. You have to cut it out of the card. There are no mentions of the piece anywhere on the box. If I didn’t already know to look for it, then I wouldn’t have noticed that it was there.
2. The combined weapon mode is still in the instructions. I remember reading somewhere that the Micromaster weapon modes were being dropped, but clearly that isn’t the case.
God damn it i have to get the micromasters to complete the map
I wish Guard Convoy was still here.. He'd be up in arms too
Do these share the same DPCI number as the Siege micromasters?
Not much of a combined mode is it.
Yes. Come back in March, Earthrise. I’ll be ready for you then.
A Sacramento, ca sighting on Twitter

Yes. A listing has been found for the Battle Squad.
UPC/EAN barcode list for modern Transformers toys
Amazon are due more Siege Battle Squad shortly and just stuck up an Unavailable Ratbat/Rumble so they may be a good bet for them.
Hang on, will grab links

May i suggest a hobby less infuriating
None of the ones from Siege actually worked well.
Decepticon Battle Squad came closest. Alt mode does work well combined but the weapons mode is LOL awful (just turn alt mode upside down).
I'm betting that these got put out early because they have the same DCPI number as the siege micromasters and the person stocking the pegs didn't know the difference.
I thought the Air Strike Patrol was the only combining set that really worked in every way. Worked real nice as individual bots and as a sword.
No. Someone had to take jeagertrons place and this walking stereotype did the job.
There's always a reason to complain with him. He's the embodiment of the 8 year old Minecraft player who says the n word and thinks that somehow makes him funny.
any news for the UK toy fair?
There isn't a whole lot of news that comes from there. Might get some leaks on the 29th from Nuremberg.
I have a feeling they may start popping up at some Target stores. A couple of my local Targets are packed with wave 2/3 micromasters at the moment and there just isn’t any space for the newer stuff on the pegs. If that old stuff ever moves, it may get restocked with the ratbat set. Target is about the only place around me still stocking the micro and battlemasters. Of course, they may just move right in to Earthrise, so, we’ll see. Keep your eye on those Amazon links someone posted above as well.
I vote we start scanning the map pieces and post the pics so everyone gets a shot at all of the pieces...in electronic form anyway. After all, who knows which of these figures will be hard/impossible to find for many of us.
Upon seeing this news, I jumped on Amazon and saw that the Battle Squad (or whatever they are called) will be in stock soon. So I went and ordered them. If I don’t get the Ratbat set I’ll live. Chances are I’ll just put them in Soundblaster’s chest. I am looking forward to the Earthrise ones. Time to start looking I suppose.
Curious, did these have the EAN on the back or a UPC?
It has begun
