    I'm only interested in Bluestreak, Ratchet, and Soundblaster's eyes.

    Dumb question:

    These 35th toys will be the same prices as regular SIEGE at Walmart?

    I preordered these 2 cell shaded Commanders immediately after i saw these pics! Lol. I already been paying attention to them but these "in hand" shots (at least it looks so) look great!

    Heres hoping for a 3rd party to turn it into a G1 earth mode. It be super easy just switch out his forearm light parts, and his backpack piece & change those to match the correct 1983 Peterbilt (im pretty sure Hasbro is going to do it anyway & that its been planned all along. This is just my thoughts, not facts..yet). :) 

    Its on Walmart.com use Google bro..

    No the lights dont accomplish that look. And if they painted it metallic it would ruin the effect. But you knew that.

    I bet if the new WFC SIEGE cartoon/anime looks cell shaded like the 1986 movie, or occasional '84-'87 Sunbow cartoon sequence, then fans would cram for it even more then now, not to mention some might change their mind? ;)  BUT it would probably be the wrong mold.

    as much as i dislike the battle damage i dislike the cell shading even more. I really hoped it would just be a toon colored repaint.No Optimus for me.

    Seems these decos are just as polarizing as the damage decos. Interesting.

    It’s an app just like the weathering/damage on seekers and Springer. Should be fair consistent.

    Yeah, not crazy about the cell shading. It's not terrible, but it certainly isn't appealing to me. But I already own regular Siege Optimus and Megs and I wasn't willing to spend the money for the redecos anyway.

    I'll be getting Bluestreak, but the one I'm really looking forward to is Ratchet. My Siege collection just doesn't feel quite right without him.

    Soundblaster I'm kind of one the fence about.

    Already having Siege OP and Megs, this is a tough sell for me... but Bluestreak is definitely a get. Soundblaster, mm, on the fence about.

    Who am I kidding... I\'m a sucker, so I\'ll see these and buy them all.

    Not understanding the hate for Prime. It’s the best voyager Optimus we’ve ever gotten, robot mode at least. It’s like a tiny masterpiece. Now they take all the battle damage crap off and make it look like it walked off the screen, and people bitch about it. I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinions.

    I think it looks great.

    Megs on the other hand will be a pass, simply because I have the first version and have removed most of the battle damage, as well as not being super crazy about the toy to begin with.

    Don’t understand people wanting toon figures and then complaining it’s too toon.

    Pick one

    yeah I think im gonna end up canceling my order for Megs + Prime tomorrow. I like the figures but the shading is a bit more than I initially realized. Looks awkward imo
