    I really think I need that Ratchet. Ugh, I hate replacing toys with repaints that are the same deco, but better (especially when they're overpriced). Still, if I do get him, my old SS Ratchet will have had a good four-year run in my collection.

    It's nice that Siege Starscream finally has an entirely red upper torso and the sides of his abdomen are now white, like the front. Still, it's really not enough of an improvement to convince me to buy it. I'm more than content with my regular Siege one.

    I have the same dilemma but with ROTF Bumblebee. Like Ratchet, he’s an essential team member.

    Movie the Best has real premium detail. The wheel detail makes him look especially nice, plus that hes got that folding back pack. If they had it where SS Ratchet’s backpack would partsform into a shield or grabber like his OG voyager, I’d prolly buy this.

    That Ratchet looks great. Where are these available? I'd like to preorder

    Two easy cuts with an exacto knife or even a sharp pair of scissors and SS Ratchet's backpack collapses even better than the old Dotm deluxe's. I can take pictures to show example this evening if you care to see. It's a mod a lot of people have done because it's super easy and works really well

    Yeah, it's so seamless that I didn't even realize my copy was modded until I sold it, and the buyer pointed it out after it arrived.

    Not really keen on the digital ashtray weathering but they are fine I guess.

    Why does the starscream not have weathering on the top of the tetrajet or on the guns. Regardless of if u like the scratches and burns or not shouldn\'t it at least be done properly and not half assed

    If I wanted my figures to look like a cheap, bad custom job I would do it myself.....

    That doesn't look too bad on Starscream. BUT it should be consistent. Having clean parts when others have battle damage doesn't look good, even if the battle damage doesn't look bad here for a change. I'd rather have a clear figure if you can't afford to make it good looking AND covering the figure in it. But I'd rather have a clean look anyway.

    fans have something about not realizing this isn’t a hasbro release but a takara exclusive and that the point of this line is releasing decos based off something like a movie or show

    The same could be said for the Earthrise Megatron tool.

    Hasbro keep reusing the Siege Megatron tool for every redeco, only reusing Earthrise for the Generations Selects G2 colours Megatron.

    It makes me wonder if Hasbro intend to use the Earthrise tools a lot more post Kingdom, which is why we are getting so many Siege redecos now.

    All that aside, this Siege Starscream is a Takara-Tomy redeco, not a Hasbro product, so Hasbro don't have anything to do with it.

    no it doesn’t it’s completely inaccurate and you’re name calling a company that 1. Has nothing to do with this release and 2. Has done 8 decos of the Earthrise seeker mold in a year and 3. This isnt even a general release. It’s a takara exclusive you have to obtain by importing
