    So is Brunt getting a Hasbro release or will it be a Takara only figure?

    Why is this like twice the price of WFC-S28 and looks almost exactly the same?

    It’s cheaper for once to import the USA version to Japan. Which is what I’m doing

    All Hasbro and Takara Siege releases are the exact same, no changes.

    Sounds like his Speak 'n Spell got an upgrade. Neat toy...huge too...thanks for posting! And, this figure totally looks to be worth the price of admission.

    He’s enormous. Dear God. He’s going to have to go next to MP Star Saber on the shelf. I’m not sure he’ll fit on my Siege shelf.

    Looks a lot more robust than the T30 Jetfire, which looks great but feels a bit like it’s made of glass. Don’t understand about no waist swivel (it it’s true it doesn’t have one) - that’s pretty basic and should be essential in a $70 toy.

    I remember someone mentioning it has waist swivel. Plus there's a huge circular cut out at the waist. Actually look below.

    Neither of those pics confirm waist swivel, those are just the figure posed at a dynamic angle. Would be pleasantly surprised if it did though.

    Look closely, the waist/cockpit is off-centre in both pics, and both to a different angle. Looks like it can at least swivel left and right a bit.
