    It’s been softened a lot. Charlie won’t cut herself on contact anymore.

    I am confused first you say that SIEGE isn't the aesthetic you want, then it sounds like you are saying masterpiece figures are so expensive because they are too close to the aesthetic that SIEGE isn't?

    Well, personally the aesthetic I want is that of the hasui era masterpieces. Which, siege is so close to being, but the cybertronian alt modes and battle damage kinda ruin them for me

    After listening to this episode, I would totally watch a series where Vangelus talks about how Bumblebee is taking elements from the Bayformers movies and improving them. It hadn't even occurred to me how Bee being half transformed to keep the humans in his cab is a spin on the Bayformers 'vomiting out the humans as they transform' trope until he pointed it out.

    EDIT: Re: Shatter and Dropkick switching places in the one trailer- I just rewatched it and in some shots they're on a road, while in others they're just in the middle of the desert, so yeah, looks like footage from 2 different scenes spliced together.

    I follow, I misunderstood the first time I thought it was about the limitations based on the Generations price point, but you'd be fine with Generations figures that were just pure "Hasui" G1 aesthetic. More a mix of toy and cartoon than all cartoon that they are now?

    For completely selfish reasons, I am salivating for a MP Snapper.
