    On one hand the Siege seeker mold is pretty great with the right deco (Chest issues aside) it\'s not everyday we get a butterfly joint on a standard voyager class or even a commander. But on the other hand I think we are on the verge of facing serious seeker fatigue. Hastak can you give us like a year break from seekers overall then start releasing a few again here. Unless you plan on making the availability a bit more consistent in which case release away for all those that missed out.

    hasbro is nothing to do with this. It’s a takara product. Hasbro has zero involvement with this being made other then selling it as an import on the pulse

    Both look terrific!
    Ratchet was always gonna be a definite purchase but I’m now considering Starscream as well.
    Definitely an improvement over the Siege release, with proper greys and blues and without the shitty silver splatter.

    Yes but it’ll be the pretty printed weathering like PF Prime, Megatron and Ultra Magnus.

    Not the ugly ass crap that was all over the Siege release :)

    You could always sell the one you have, especially if it's going for good money on the aftermarket! That's what I'm gonna do, anyway - I'd much rather have a Ratchet in proper yellow(ish green) for my '07 Autobots. Looking forward to seeing how Prime turns out, too.

    Didn’t bother buying ratchet (or Ironhide which a really should have), since I had so many from versions of both from the past decade, but may have to pick this up if my budget isn’t blown.

    I love that because the differences are so so subtle, even the News thread can’t fully believe these are PF Figures judging by the use of “Possible”

    Unfortunately, mine has a few small paint chips in somewhat noticeable places. I doubt I'd be able to sell it for enough to cover the new version.

    Me: Maybe premium finish CHUG figures will give me versions of molds I like but without battle damage and/or with more toon accurate deco.

    TT: Here's every CHUG figure in a color scheme you don't want and/or with battle damage/weathering. But it's better looking battle damage/weathering.

    (Speaking just for my personal tastes, not anyone else's. Which should go without saying but, you know. Also please don't take this seriously, I'm not actually upset about it. I just find it kind of funny. I wouldn't normally offer this disclaimer but it's the internet and a toy forum and... well... :lol )

    \"Premium finish\" aka $0.0001 worth of overspray....... If I wanted my figures to look like cheap customizations I would do it myself....

    they use the word “possible” in all photo and or listing leaks until a official reveal in case it’s a fake so they’re not spreading inaccurate stuff.


    maybe you shouldn’t come up with your own idea of what they are and read the description of the line when it was announced which is making screen accurate decos.

    I'm definitely considering Starscream now. Part of the reason I skipped most of the Siege Seekers was the exact same pattern of weathering on all of them.

    I only got Redwing and Hotlink as a result (though I swapped their heads around which made one look more like a battle hardened red eyed warrior, and the other more like the Joker (pale smirking face, purple suit and brightly coloured minions, etc :D ), and plan to get Shattered Glass Starscream as well.

    I guess I'll wait to see how this Starscream turns out. I really want a Ghost Starscream, though

    So "premium finish" is just no battle damage? Wow can Hasbro milk a mold! Could've given him the improved ER null rays at least.
