    If you don't mind KO I've found the CBB version to be just as good.

    Edit: You would have to apply your own Decepticon symbols or treat theirs like a special forces insignia.

    I think they do this on purpose sometimes for creative license, to further avoid possible litigation.

    Will we ever see Skywarp and Thundercracker? Either KOs or 3rd party? It wouldn't kill Hasbro to give us another shot at all the seekers, coneheads included.

    It's been 10 years or so, time to fire up them molds and give us the rest of the seekers to match this Starscream...

    Rumor has it we will get all 3 seekers as Tetrajets in Siege. They are actually on the poster. 1532678922-37821889-10155897488922266-8861035457459257344-n.jpg

    So, they should have G1 robot modes... Well, it's better than nothing. Are they Voyager or Deluxe Class? It was nice to have them be Voyager Class for once...

    Agreed, but supposedly Voyager. They are expected to be revealed at NYCC I believe since only Autobots were revealed at SDCC. I believe it was said that they planned to bring Starscream, but his prototype wasn't finished in time.

    Edit: I believe that was said to be the focus...G1 bot modes with "Cybertronian vehicles" but with some very G1ish for bots who need an update more, for example Sideswipe and Hound.

    Both look surprisingly close to G1 in their alt modes.

    Thanks, guys. That's great news! I'll be sticking with my Cyberverse (Walgreens) Shockwave. I don't want all of my Decepticons to be Leader Class with a handful of Voyagers and Legends.

    Knowing me, I'll get Leader Shockwave. Personally, I hope the rumor that Leader Shockwave is acutally for Studio Series is true. I would prefer a Voyager like most, but I am happy with my Leader TR Soundwave and Blaster, so maybe Shockwave will be ok too.

    Supposedly it was discussed that the figures for Siege would vary in heights within the same size class to better reflect the character compared to others in G1 (Ironhide as a deluxe would be taller than other deluxes). If that's true, perhaps if Leader Shockwave is indeed a Siege release, he might be a short but bulky release like Studio Series Blackout. So there is some hope.

    That looks like Prima, from what was admittedly a cooler release schedule of the line. Looks to be his shoulder kibble there, as well as colors and the Star Saber split apart under both wings.

    So, grabbed that recent Blast Off, and it was the first mainline CHUG figure I'd bought in a while - and I love it! Super fun and a nice diversion from MP and statue collecting, which can get intense at times.

    Question - are there any other figures that have come in those windowed boxes lately? I really dug that packaging but can't remember seeing any like that in stores.
