    Who are Omega Supreme and Jetfire going to fight in this line? What will Hasbro produce to fight Omega (if it is what everyone is saying Scorponok, excellent), who does Jetfire fight (Astrotrain, Blitzwing, or octane, any of these three commander class would be a good choice)?

    Wow some amazing stuff here, Omega is incedible, little big for me but I get why he's at titan price point so I will just have to deal cos no way am I missing out on that.

    Skyfire, looks like the toon and carries other TF's, perfect. I am calling it now we will get another Ultra Magnus at this price point in a line or two.

    Mirage, finally done right, looks amazing.

    Impactor... okay so he's an autobot again now cos in the vote he was a con, also dlx is just to small for this guy and there is just something lacking about him, still hope he does well and hasbro gives us a bigger better one down the line.

    They can repaint Omega into Guardian Robots and it'll still be legit.

    I would not defend it until there are actual photos of the physical toy.

    This will likely be the first Titan Class toy that I skip as I am running out of space, and completing the Big 4 City Bots take priority; I need to save any space left for Scorponok.

    It just makes him stand out from the rest of the bunch since they have really done well not having that issue thus far.

    I heard seacons are being made but either a new devastator or skorponok might work and jetfire will fight starscream

    Ding! Yes, Cybertron Scattorshot/ Backguild is what i had in mind. I wouldn't be surprised that he would be Impactor's retool. I mean, it could even be an extensive retool. I tried digibashing Impactor into him, and really, it's kinda an cool idea. (Along with the potential it could be repainted into Dropshot or Elite Guard Flak.)

    They all look so damn good. This line is hitting it out of the park so often.

    Really looking forward to Mirage. I'm just not sure about Impactor.

    The description says that Impactor is 5.5 inches tall. He might be taller a lot of the Deluxes in this line, but he is still significantly shorter than a Voyager especially for those who wanted a cheap Impactor displayed next to Generations Springer. There's also the issue of the blatantly hollow legs and the lack of ankle tilt.

    After playing around with Siege Hound and Sideswipe, I am underwhelmed.

    They all look really good. Kind of wish Omega's base mode had a bit more in it in terms of Micromaster playability (like some little workstations or the like), but i'm glad I waited for this over the 3p options.

    I will say that it's funny how they're stretching the whole "cybertronian" mode thing with Mirage, but, the figure looks great so I can't complain too much. Honestly, I thought I was done with the mainline after POTP, but Siege has really been a lot more fun and higher quality than I was expecting!

    Why does it look like none except Mirage have any waist swivels? If the quality in this line is declining that fast, that\'s genuinely disappointing.

    Is that what it takes to be considered "quality"? A waist swivel?

    Typically, a waist swivel is the first point of articulation to be lost as a result of transformation design. Having that point of articulation can severely restrict what mechanics can fit into the torso.

    I also find it to be the most superfluous/useless articulation point. Rotated any further than 10-15 degrees, and it looks like the character is being twisted in half. Most of the time, the same effect of the pose can be achieved simply by turning the character slightly to the side.

    The only time a waist swivel becomes super useful is when the toy also has an abdominal joint. Then the waist joint becomes instrumental in performing the "Iron Man" pose, and some more intense running poses and such can also be achieved usually.

    hell I'm getting it and I own DX-9 Gabriel.

    All I know is it's cheaper than Trypticon went for.

    Siege Jetfire is Siege-scaled and the others are not. IMHO at least that's all the reason that was needed.

    If my guess is correct, Impactor should be around Siege Ironhide(15cm) height, while Mirage should be Siege Sideswipe(13cm) height. Probably the best a Deluxe could do without being even more hollow, but it's something.

    Looks to me like he has ankle tilt for transformation, but the render isn't utilizing it for one reason or another. =/

    Omega & Impactor should because of transformation. Jetfire though probably doesn't. =(
