    Haha, that prowl just sucks.
    Sixgun is kind of neat though.

    Man does Prowl look ugly like the robot mode is okay but his vehicle mode is just unpleasant BUT I take comfort in knowing that the Siege figure could be remolded into a good Prowl. Same could be said of a lot of the Siege figure actually.

    I could totally see Victory Leo as a Weaponizer somewhere down the road.

    Prowl looks pretty good to me.... Huge custom potential, too.

    Looking good! Prowl looks great and I like his alt mode I just wish the light bar didn\'t ruin the sleek aesthetic. Sixgun looks awesome, might be my favorite design for the weaponizers yet. Preraxadon is right up my alley, I dig the design and color scheme. I also like that new blast piece as well.

    I like that Prowl more than I thought I would. Not sure I'm all in on the line as I'm not sure I need a pre-Earth shelf again (Dumped WFC/FOC specifically because of the redundancy and needing funds), but I'm sure in the Hell tempted. Some definite purchases, but some hard thinking on others.

    I think Barricade will be a repaint of Prowl. And I like this Prowl figure.

    Let’s see how much remolding. Just a new head? Probably nah.

    Probably all 3 will be straight recolors. Maybe Smokescreen and Silverstreak getting new car fronts. But likely all 3 are going to be the same in new colors. With Barricade acting as the "nemesis Prowl" kind of recolor. Which actively does make sense. He's the bad cop to Prowl's good cop. Whereas Smokescreen and silverstreak are more like retired officers or other forms of the car model used for other things. Streak having that sense of "Street racer" to him, Smokescreen having an aspect of circuit racer. Prowl as a cop, and Barricade as a corrupt/bad cop. All 4 seem to work in interesting parallel ways, with only one actively becoming a decepticon.

    That's kind of a neat sub narrative to use and build on.

    I have mixed feelings about this line . 

    For the most part the robot modes look OK , but the vehicle modes are too earthlike to be cybertronian and too different to just be considered futuristic earthmodes . 

    I doubt I will buy many from this line apart from bots I dont have a version of such as Reflector / Refrackor .

    I kinda wish Pteraxadon was in traditional Dinobot colors. Still, I may pick him up and give him to my PotP Dinobots as a weapon.

    So WFC Siege has 3 gimmicks in it, Battle Masters (new Target Masters), Micro Masters, & Weaponizers (new Partsformers). I wonder what will be the gimmicks in the next two parts of the WFC Trilogy. Maybe they will use these at some point, Action Masters, Brain Masters, Mini-Cons, Cyber Planet Keys, & Shattered Glass.

    Honestly from the pic shown he doesn’t even look like a new head. But that would be nice. I mean I’d be in if they keep the transparent wheels but if not I’m out.

    I think I'd actually be annoyed to the point of passing on most of the line based solely on them remolding the Datsuns. There's no NEED to remold, there's no historical toy basis for remolding unless you count the bumper flash on Smokescreen, and the resources spent to add new parts to that mold are better used elsewhere. I realize that cartoon accuracy led to the MPs being remolded, there is no need for that on these toys.

    If they did do Action Master in a future Series of WFC I found 4 Transformers that could be Titan Class Action Masters.

    But if they don't do an Action Master Titan then here are the 2 I would like to see after Omega Supreme.

    Unicron & Primus can wait.

    I don't think so.
