    Excellent review and comparison pics as always. Makes me jealously excited to get mine eventually if and/or when Amazon ever restocks this guy, or is it these guys? A bit frustrating considering P/CP has been on pre-order for me since August, but I like to see posts about the figures I want but don’t have yet to tide me over. Well done!

    Thanks! Sometimes I wonder why I spend hours of my, very limited, spare time doing this stuff for no obvious reward, but a post like that is all the reminder I need.

    I would think it's too small. Unless they include something extra to bring it up to the same-ish mass as a TM or PM.0

    Just impulse-bought PoTP Jazz (since I think he'll fit in with the upcoming Siege figures nicely) and I like the design quite a lot. But.... as is often the case with these kinds of figures, ESPECIALLY deluxes, some of the joints are incredibly flimsy, mainly the shoulder hinges and the hips. The rest of the joints are fine.

    Maybe in the future, instead of combiner hands or extra guns or "masters" they could include a bottle of nail polish with each figure.

    So I just got a Sinnertwin and his shoulder joints (not the ball joint, the transformation joint) is GOD AWFUL. Neither shoulder locks into either position and all they do is flop around.
    Is this an isolated QC issue I'm dealing with and I should try again with another Sinnertwin? Or is this common and should I try and fix the issue? In which case does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

    I recently picked up Beachcomber on a whim (HTS sale + eBay coupon). Fun little dude! Especially once I realized he can still fit Titanmasters/Primemasters in bot mode. Sort of:

    Now THAT'S a hidden feature! :D

    When was the release of Power of the Prime at retail first announced?

    Maybe it will be the same time for Siege.
