    Ugh, I want that three pack Impactor. Retail looks like garbage and I don't care about the three pack other guys (although I'd keep the powerdasher guy, Mirage is hot garbage). Yet another Siege release I won't pick up, thankfully Hasbro has been saving me a ton of money with their releases. I guess.

    I'd like to see both versions of Impactor side-by-side.

    That head makes all the difference (and the extra paint apps). I really wish that three packed Impactor was the retail version.

    Definitely the 3-pack version. Gives off a Gladiator-esque vibe with the new head sculpt.

    Also the new head can fit in the story of an injury requiring it be rebuilt and it was made more armored. Learning from the fight from Mirage.

    I will not rest until my Titan Class Tidal Wave is in my hands.

    Don't even change the Armada design significantly... just do that, but better.

    If anybody does that, it will most likely be Takara, and it might be a crowdfund like Grand Maximus was

    I don't have either, but DX9's offer is going to be a lot more expensive, and is generally meant more for Masterpiece collectors. Siege Omega is going to be a much better toy, and will be cheaper. Siege Omega is also compatible with the Earthrise Deluxe bases, and I think also with Titans Return bases as well.

    Quality and figure wise, you will probably get more of a kick out of dx9’s as it will have sturdier plastic. I’d recommend it over the siege one while on sale. Only thing is the aesthetics might not match, since one is more toon based while the other is detailed for the siege line. But in general dx9 is probably a better purchase.

    If Omega is your favorite and can afford both, mine as well get both while my prices are alright? You will have more display options.

    If you get one over the other, you probably just end up thinking about the one you didn't get.

    I collect a few different fandoms. So I really have no choice but to cherry pick

    Tough call. I don't have Gabriel only because I had already bought Siege Omega, then Gabriel seemed to have gone on sale for $180 indefinitely, otherwise I'd be in the same spot as you deciding which to get. :p
