    I\'m having weird feelings, on the one hand, prime and grapple both look wonderful but I\'m bumping into the fact that Prime is a retool, hits me strange...but WANT THAT TRAILER.  And yes agree with others, narratively this feels an odd time to switch to earth...  Very sudden and leaves me concerned about what kind of Wheelhack we\'ll get and I enjoy the seekers we got, getting a remold of seekers to boot?

    I made a good decision not getting siege prime.

    Earthrise might indicate that the next portion of the story takes place on or around Earth's Moon

    Well Ironworks is different enough that he's an instant buy!

    It's obvious to me, that I'm G1-ed out now though. I should be chomping at the bit for what we're seeing here, but I don't know if I'll even bother with most of, what once would've been, my dream line once upon a time.

    I probably will end up getting that Prime (could do without that plastic grey box used for storing nothing but nostalgia though), and any Earth Rise Megatron that measures up, for the sake of having modern Earth designs of the two. Other than that, it's a shrug of the shoulders from me.

    They'll probably make improved redo's of these same figures again in another 3 years anyway, so it's kinda a question of what's the point investing in the line?

    Probably not Nebulos since they've already been covering all of the -masters already, but it's not impossible. I'm thinking things like Victory, Jungle Planet, Speed Planet. That's where the rest of the homage figures could fit in.

    The fact that the Siege Optimus is a retool is probably the best news to me personally. That mold is my all time favorite Prime and I will buy any and every repaint it gets

    I noticed that, too. I'm hoping his abdomen can slide forward and the stock renders are just mistransformed...

    Grapple looks good but nothing here is really grabbing me so far. I really try to not be negative, but do we really need another Optimus Prime? I mean last year the POTP Optimus came with a trailer and this one looks a lot like they are taking the engineering from the Siege Voyager Optimus, redoing it as an earth mode and giving it a trailer. However I'm the kind of guy that doesn't like having to many versions of the same character, so I'm probably sticking with Siege Optimus for the whole trilogy.

    Man...that Optimus... Guess that confirms the listings as real.

    Which is cool on one hand, and sucks on the other.
    Cool we're getting an Earth mode Optimus and apparently F-15 style Seekers... Sucks having bought the Cybertron mode versions of all those guys now.

    Why didn't they just have the Earth modes for everyone right from the start!? If the series is called "War For Cybertron", then shouldn't it have been all to do with Cybertron?

    I'm not angry, just confused given the second part of this new trilogy is already throwing a new Optimus and Starscream at us that will make the previous ones basically obsolete already to a number of people.

    I might just be seeing things. The arms and legs look pretty similar to me, but I’m on mobile

    Quintessa and Junk?

    With Unicron planned as part of the Siege line, they could be planning a trilogy of Pre-Show Cybertron -> Seasons 1/2 Earth -> '86 Movie

    Speak for yourselves, I didnt fall for shit. There are many occasions where I bought and returned Siege Starscream and Shockwave because based on those two alone; I was never sold into that line. Soundwave however is another story because he's the ONLY figure I had fun and still own.

    Looks like it, and with somewhat articulated hands to hold it.
