    While not a bad thing per say, it's very odd that sometimes Asia countries get TF figures a lot earlier than anywhere else for some reason. The only reason I could ever get mine is due to extreme luck, nor did I expect to see one this early at all.

    Doesn’t sound like you want to take the RK option, but out of curiosity I just checked shipping to me (Maryland, USA), and shipping was $12 and change. FWIW.

    Not really, Asia countries are much closer to the point of manufacture so it takes less time to ship to countries in that region. Taiwan and Hong Kong are usually top of the tree.

    Looks awesome on the whole. I do wish he had different shoulder canons than Smokescreen, rather than sharing the same. I know the toys had the same kind, but the animation models on the two were different enough in that regard to make me want something more distinct.

    Just got him today. He's Prowl (as he should be), so not really much to say. You'll feel exactly about him as you did about your Prowl*.

    One thing worth pointing out that I hadn't seen, yet: The shoulder cannons can be attached laying on their sides, so they look a little bit more like Bluestreak's cartoon model.

    So when Smokescreen comes out you can attach his cannons in the standing position, and all three Datsun Bros. can have their cartoon specific cannon configuration (if Prowl's lack of cannons counts as a configuration).


    *If you don't have Prowl, I love this mold.

    I do wish he had different shoulder cannons from what Smokescreen's getting, to better match their animation models, but that petty complaint is my only ish with this otherwise great fig.

    Colorblocking is almost perfect. Love the color separation. I used to not like this mold but after i painted Prowl i saw its potential, and it is great. Cannot wait for Barricade and Smokescreen! IMG_20191004_205021032.jpg

    Love the deco on this guy. He’s excellent. I’m so glad I got one of the six that were on sale at 6:15 in the morning this week.

    My Walmart order finally came in! This is my first experience with the mold and I love it. Bluestreak has always been one of my favorites, in large part due to his color scheme. It just pops! No exception here, Siege Bluestreak is gorgeous. Bot mode is cool as heck, and the alt mode is ridiculously sleek. My copy sadly has loose hips and knees, but it's alright. The only thing I would change about the mold design is making the doors angle up in bot mode. A swivel or ball joint there would make this figure perfect. As it is, I'm very happy. So great to finally have a really good mass retail Bluestreak.

    You don’t like “crappy” Siege paint but you like the crappy Classics mold?

    I hope you have fun with your crappy toys. Classics Prowl is just too crappy for me. I do like the new Siege mold and will be having all four characters. Even back in the day though, I couldn’t bring myself to buy more than Classics Prowl.

    Indeed, the classics versions of many characters do need an update. Sadly, due to the small size and/or the battle damage paint on many Seige figures, these latest versions are most certainly not worthy of replacing them.

    Let's hope the next series of Earth-based figures makes the grade, eh?

    I will agree that Siege toys are smaller than toys of the same size class used to be. That does bother me about the new toys. But personally, I prefer how sleek and smooth Siege Prowl feels to the bulkier Classics Prowl.
