I like this bit of lore in the product description.
Liking the vehicle mode. Robot mode is surprisingly bland.
That's so Pepsi.
Colour me unimpressed. The colour layout doesn't do this redeco any favours. In robot mode, black and blue are predominant without enough red or white to break up the palette. Henkei Smokescreen got the balance right and that's what I'll be sticking with.
Hey it\'s not a Deadend retool! Plus it looks miles better!
Oh hell I need this. Siege is the best thing to have happened to Transformers in a long goddamn time.
A bit bland. (Color-wise) Looks great, otherwise, though. Good grief, my Universe ones can take a big friggin' hike.
The CW One is still slightly better! They were this close!
All of my Universe Datsun bros are gonna go after the Siege ones. Holy damn. I really, REALLY love Prowl and I'm already in love with Smokescreen and Barricade. Now we just need to see Bluestreak...
I wish there were more paint apps on the limbs/torso but I’m still picking it up. I love this mold!
No kiddin. I joined the fandom a few years after that mold was released, but I'm glad I missed it. Also glad I can justify gettin these guys since my CW dudes are all combined.
Wow, he looks great! Awesome to hear that Smokescreen is getting some WFCS love. Those shoulder cannons of his are very much appreciated, and so is the rest of his very G1 asthetic! Here\'s hoping the Decepticon Triple Changers get announced for the line next!
Whoa whoa hey.. a SIEGE figure without battle damage paint aps???! What is this sorcery???!?!!
I love the vehicle mode. Don’t like the robot mode. My theory is that the prowl tooling only divides the plastic into two coloured sections. Given how all this guy’s red seems to be paint. If they had change this up on prowl to maybe divide it into three sections with a white, black and grey they could’ve prevented issues with this figure’s resulting blandness.
But I do love the alternate Cybertron 38s. Even though people probably are gonna replace them with toyhax labels or something.
Gosh damn it, is it truly too much for the person in charge of color blocking to give these guys their silver thighs and biceps?!
Oh man that alt mode look gorgeous! I gotta get me one!
Car mode looks pretty good, more appealing than Prowl to me.
Even if they made all the black red it’d still look way better. Cause it pops far more and makes him feel unique. It wouldn’t be entirely accurate but it’d still look better. They could add some paint onto the limbs to break it up if they wanted or some people could add little details. Better than having to do bigger customising like they might have to do with him. Even the black windows would help vary the legs up instead of doing nothing and might as well be clear. I just feel like this was poorly executed and could’ve been fixed easily. Probably the most disappointing siege figure so far.
I love this figure.
Jumped out for me, too. What previous in-universe reasons for similar-looking remoulds/repaints has Hasbro used? I know the comics occasionally alluded to it (Skywarp in IDW: "We pay homage to our commander's form.") but can't remember the toyline doing it. Unless someone can correct me.
