    I\'m on the same page as the podcast crew regarding the SIEGE battle damage. For a second I was pretty optistic that the paint could be quickly covered over with some nicely color matched stickers from reprolabels, but then I remembered about  all the greeble detail, that might make stickers not look so greate, which is a bummer if it ends up being the case.

    Honestly, I feel the same about siege. I've wanted a good sideswipe to go with my prime wars collection and it's looking like I might have to mod a sunstreaker. The battle damage doesn't look good at all. To me anyway.

    Jinbao Feral Rex got here.

    He was not superb.

    The price is superb, though.

    Ever since Siege was revealed, I’ve not been a fan of the battle damage. It just looks so...... unfinished. You can’t just put that weather on the thighs while ignoring the rest of the legs.


    As for Knockoffs, the only line in the sand I have is with things like counterfeits that are being presented as the orginal thing. I use to be a little iffy when it comes to like the slight upgraded and tolerance tweaked KOs but then I’ve discovered Legendary Toys KO MPM Optimus which has really caught my attention and I kinda want it :/

    I really can't say I approve of Knockoffs, but I really can't talk since I currently buying the Machineboy Knockoff version of Warbotron cuz I simply just like the colors more cuz it gives me G2 vibes without being G2.

    I dig those colors, but I can't get into any of these knockoffs. I found that there is such a thing as to big for me. I would actually love a downscaled KO of one of the Bruticii. Unique Toys has the level of detail I want but I'd prefer getting deluxe sized limbs and a voyager torso. Zeta toys looks good too.

    But I get that I'm in a minority regarding combiners. I've been tempted to just pick up Takara's Bruticus boxset for a while but I already have G2 Bruticus and Baldigus and as much as I like the set I am struggling to justify paying for it a third time.

    Just wanted to elaborate that in the SDCC TF panel, the designers stated that the for Siege the alt modes are clean, and robot mode has battle damage because they are supposed to be in the thick of war. Heh.

    I never had the Prowl but that white Cyclonus was utter garbage. The knee joints couldn’t support the weight of the torso

    I still have an old KO, an order sized Bruticus in the wrong colors

    Oh, also you forgot the Sultan of Shady Toys

    I'm glad the question about KOs mentioned the iGear seekers, which if I'm remembering correctly, Chris definitely was not a fan of in their heyday, even though they definitely match the current paradigm of knocking off an official mold plus improvements. Is there a difference between them and the Wei jiang stuff?

    I recently picked up the upscaled TR Hardhead, AOE Hound, TLK Megatron, and Nitro Zeus.

    Hardhead; I've somehow developed a thing for hardheads (I think I'm official and 3P complete, have to check that) and figured a bigger version would be fun. He is.
    Megatron; I have this weird thing where I like most Bayformer designs when I divorce them from the name they gave it. So an extra big version (of the best version) that makes it even easier to just be a cool armored titan was a win.
    Hound is one of the few exceptions where I don't mind calling by name. Possibly because I've seen enough of him actually having a character outside of the gobbidy gook they call a plot? Anyway he's in my SS crew, I was never down with Ironhide. Looks good there.
    Zeus; Wanted him. We may not get another one. Got the first one, loved it, they said they made a bigger, prettier, tweaked one. Hell yes.
