    It’s things like that that make me wish CW devy had a 5mm port on the wrist instead of a mushroom peg. The drill would be small yes but still look neat

    Noticed a nice attention to detail. Nightbird doesn't have a faction symbol.

    I thought that too, but doesn’t it seem weird that they’re being sold by TT first?

    Maybe a little, bit these two also leaked in the list that revealed sdcc stuff. Plus hasbro is already doing 1 power dashers. The likelihood of these being Takara selects is so small it’s not really worth considering

    I was only gonna buy Nightbird if she had a bunch of new accessories, but it looks like I\'m sticking with my Takara one. I am gonna buy that Zetar though.

    Zetar is mine. The drill tank mode looks great with Brunt's cannon. Hasbro really took the original toy and improved upon it. Buying this once it goes up for order. Now where's the Cromar they showed off?

    Nightbird is a maybe. I haven't been able to find a Legends Nightbird for under $60 online, so I might get this instead. The Chromia mold is okay, I guess. It's not bad and I like the poseability it has, but there are other Siege figures I like more.

    I need to get those and I think Zetar is my fav of the two just cause he reminds me of Drill head from Puppet master.

    Honestly out of all the siege figures, the chromia mold is the worst to me. Which is probably why I forget it exists. I really didn't enjoy it after I got it and just threw it on the female autobot shelf.

    I honestly prefer the old thrilling 30 Chromia.

    When I was a kid, I called my Drilldasher “Borebit” (based on that comic panel) for lack of another name. I also called the F1 Dasher “Orion Pax” and Jet Dasher “Ariel”.

    Gotta say I wasn't expecting Nightbird to keep Chromia's guns.

    Yeah I was expecting different weapons too. All the better to keep my Legends one.
