    TFP Slipstream with sparkling, squad. Dark Energon and Entertainment pack Starscream look enough like their own characters to make a good all-girl trine with Slipstream.

    I love Arcee's cotton candy colors and glowing blue eyes.

    Same. I think the black endoskeleton of Arcee also gives her a touch of class.

    Oh! Yes, well I agree. Black and light pink are a very elegant color combo.

    My Slaanesh Warriors are going to be that color combo with a pinch of lavender, baby blue, and silver details

    I've had Siege Chromia for about a year now, and she really isn't great. Generations Chromia benefits from shared engineering with the truly excellent Prime Arcee figure, and although the kibble is more awkward and the translucent plastic is slightly worrying, I find Generations Chromia vastly superior to the Siege version. 20200519_165733.jpg 20200519_170056.jpg 20200519_170228.jpg 20200519_170432.jpg 20200519_170324.jpg 20200519_170555.jpg 20200519_170726.jpg Plus she fits the general IDW1 aesthetic I'm going for in my Generations collection.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Siege Chromia was my so far only case of buyers remorse in Siege - though to be clear, I only buy figs that interest me, I'm no completionist - I think in large part because for me IDW Chromia IS Chromia. I've never watched the G1 episode with her in. I actually ended up redubbing my Siege Chromia as a new OC called Cobalta because she just isn't Chromia to me, whereas I love the T30 mold and would love to see an updated take on her and her Tron Light Cycle like altmode!

    I don't like the TFP aesthetic of that figure, so she's a no go for me. I want Siege Chromia, but life has kept me from making that happen.

    I tried to like Siege more but the slavishly G1 design just kept me off. T30 Chromia is great, I just wish she had a bigger, more IDW based head.

    I meant to say before with Siege Chromia I actually ended up feeling Nightbird wears the mold so much BETTER

    I can't say I'm totally satisfied with Selects Nightbird, and while it's not a clear cut winner, I generally prefer her to the LG version.

    Though I certainly understand anyone who prefers the LG version. I suppose the bottom line is that I'm not completely satisfied with either one of them.

    I'd forgotten how much I dislike Elita-1 though. Ugh. I have little doubt that I'll be replacing Arcee with the Cyberverse one as well.


    Discussing the RID and LG Windblade, I took some comparison pics, may as well share them here.
