    It's a hard pass for me. I can't get over how bland robot mode is, and as others stated, he looks like a shoe in car mode (can't wait for combiner nike mode, lol). I'm sticking with CW. I really hope that Bluestreak is better than these two. I'm kind of glad there's those that do enjoy it, though. This mold just isn't for me.

    Also, This will be prowl's 4th mold use. I wonder how many other characters can use it?

    I hope the knees will be more robust than the ones on Prowl. My copies of Prowl consistently go floppy on the left knee.

    There's still a lot of Hasbro in this Smokescreen (no white plastic), but he's better than their other efforts have been. Which is to say they have been absolutely terrible. Throwing primary colors on something doesn't automatically make it Smokescreen.

    I'll have to wait and see more pics. Most of the rest of Siege has excited me, but other than actually having shoulder blasters, he's not overly sharp.

    Although I\'m sticking with my Classics version, I\'m impressed by the lack of cruddy \"battle damage\" on this figure.  Perhaps Hasbro has been listening?

    I like that the Autobot symbol is centered this time.

    presumably yes. Reasonable to expect he's a shared online ish exclusive like Select Swoop, Ricochet, Megatron and Star Convoy

    Did Previews also have the others?

    I really like this. May be the first Selects I get (assuming that’s how it’s released).

    A bit too much black around the mid-torso, but otherwise nice.

    I really like this use of the mold. At this rate I might just get all 4 uses of the mold since they all seem to look great so far

    Cool. Glad to see Hasbro putting out all the appropriate re-decos/retools in the same line instead of spacing them out temporally. Let's hope WFC 2 maintains that if/when we get the Coneheads, Trailbreaker, Inferno, etc.

    As to the WFC-GS numbering, I'll go ahead and guess at Redwing, Slammer (Brunt), CDF Hot Shot (Hound) and CDF Scattorshot (Impactor) as the four in between Smokescreen and Combat Megatron

    So Megs was GS01. Smokescreen is GS06.

    We know of Ricochet and Swoop.

    Who are the other 2? Are we going to see Lancer for Greenlight drops?
