    hey at least they gave him a manicure first - which is more than I can say for a bunch of youtoobers I know... X)

    who knows maybe the hand actor is just some guy from marketing? or design?

    It\'s about dang time.  Their print instructions have been horrid.  No they\'re not perfect but they do the job.

    Something loosely based on Movie!Drift might actually work with a bit of retooling to give him more samurai flavor

    I'll take a Deadlock with no remolding.

    Springer looks like the one to get. I was hoping to see storage for the rotor assembly but, I think there's enough there to amaze me.

    Super excited for this guy.

    Every Siege figure that has a code for the website has one of these transform videos. (That's where these videos originally came from)
    So we currently have videos for all the Deluxes in waves 1-3, Voyagers waves 1-2 + Springer (still not sure if Thundercracker is wave 3 with Springer or not), and all 3 leaders.

    I really hope that this peg hole is for the rotor part storage when not in use in car mode. That's really my only gripe about this Siege is the damn new part for the rotor blades. Really it would have been better to replicate the same EXACT system as on classics Springer.

    Here's to hoping Hasbro designers really thought this through. At least there are some cool ways to store the blades (on the sides) in car mode.

    There's going to be clean versions of Prime and Megatron released? Where did you hear this?

    Take a look at the URLs for the individual videos. They each have a "code name" which I think might be the word hidden on the packaging as an unlockable code. Galaxy Siege Prime is "Convoy", Springer is "Triplechanger", Brunt is "Trypticon", Refraktor is "Reflector" and Red Alert is "Rung" (I guess whoever uploaded the files is an MTMTE fan).

    If there is storage it will be in the dark green part....but it seems questionable to me. I hope so.

    Perhaps this cavity in the dark green aft section will accommodate the rotor shaft.

    After folding this over...

    You get a nicely shaped cavity.... That I very much hope can store the rotor shaft.

    It's hard to see the very top edge of the picture.

    Yes, that is exactly it. These videos are from the code site and every deluxe, voyager, and leader has one.

    If they put a lovely woman with gentle hands and a tight shirt in their videos then all the reviewers are out of a job.

    Most definitely. Though I like seeing comparisons.

    Though a critique I don't hear btw, and I'll mention it. Some of the "supposed" collectors have a certain figure to show, then people are like, hey what about comparing it with this or that. Then later said collector says he doesn't own that figure anymore. Ok thats fair. But then it happens again and again and again.
    So... Is this a collector? Or just someone buying a toy to make bucks showing it?
    And when the videos become rushed, backstory of the character is botched and the transformation isn't even correct. It leaves me with a bad aftertaste.
    Things like the Hotspot knee transformation and the lack of images for Cog with Fort Max.
    You can't be serious that a true collector sells his Fort Max and his Metroplex so neither Cog or Sixshot can be displayed with their respective titans.
    With Brunt coming I bet most of the people that said "Trypticon is a must for your collection" ended up selling that too.
    Tbh stop. Claiming you are a fan if you sell every key figure except for your token Optimus Prime.
