Micromasters are also making a comeback in War for Cybertron: Siege. There are initially three sets that come with two bots. This first set is the Autobot Rescue Patrol. These two are Stakeout and Red Heat (a renamed Red Hot). The original Micromaster teams had four members; I don't know if we'll get the other two members of the teams eventually. Considering Fixit's role in recent comics, I'm surprised he wasn't included.

Those all look pretty cool! Probably most excited about AHRRRNHIDE and Magnus.

Cog's altmode sure is something! I don't know what, but it is!

I don't know what Cog is, but he looks like he matches Fort Max.

The second Micromaster team is the Autobot Battle Patrol, made of Bigshot and Flask (a renamed Flak). Bigshot is the brown tank and Flask is the green rocket launcher vehicle.

Finally, there's the Autobot Race Patrol, made up of Roadhandler and Swindler. The original Swindler was a DeLorean (a play on the creator of the DeLorean's shady business practices). I can't tell if this new one is still a DeLorean, or just a generic car.

Hey KJB, have you seen any of the new Tailgates down by you?

I'm pretty sure I got mine at a local toy and collectables specialty store. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've seen him at a general retail store. Are you looking for him?

Yeah, trying to decide if I should just grab him on Amazon, but the seller who has Tailgate for retail isn't Prime eligible, so I'd have to pay shipping.

(Seriously, how can you sell Transformers and not be Prime eligible?)

Well, really, does selling Transformers sound more like an Autobot or Decepticon thing to do?

You're buying from Swindle, is what I'm saying.

I keep an eye out for him for you. I do have the previous Tailgate (the Lost Light styled one). If you're just wanting a version of the character, I'd be willing to mail it to you.

I was finally able to order Blast Off from Amazon. Before, it kept saying he was out of stock. I should have him, Repugnus, and Punch/Counterpunch at the beginning of August.

I do want Tailgate for Lost Light purposes, but I wouldn't want you to give up a piece of your collection. (Though I do appreciate the offer!) I'll keep looking as well.

Does Punch/Counterpunch ship in August? For some reason, I thought mine shipped in September.

Oh, and there will be a Masterpiece Hound! As well as another version of MP Optimus, apparently. I kinda want Hound, but I also think he's weird-looking. Something about the head is off.

Hound's head does seem a little tall, and his chin seems a little big. It seems like it should be more cube shaped.

The older extra Tailgate that I have is this one:

I've replaced him on my shelf with the new Power of the Primes one, so I was planning on selling him anyway. If you want him, he's yours. But if you're specifically looking for the new one, I can look out for him for you.

I was forced to set foot in a Wal-Mart over the weekend, but as a small karmic bonus for my suffering, I was able to buy their last PotP Tailgate! He has joined Chromedome, Rewind, and Cyclonus in my Lost Light crew. (Now to find a Swerve that isn't a billion dollars)

I was about to contact you and let you know I saw Tailgate at that same toy store yesterday. But I'm glad you found him.

While I was there, I bought my own Christmas present: the Predaking box set! Now the hard part is having to wait until December to open him.
