    I don't think he has wrist swivels, upper arm swivels, or hip ratchets. Those are considered, by some, very necessary for reasonably expensive figures. Mine is in a box right now, so that might be a little off. I think the two horns are translucent, but thick, so that should be the only vaguely iffy part.

    If you're mostly a Hasbro collector, I can snap some pics tomorrow with a few Siege figures. Just Quirinus and Vulcan from PX, right?

    ...i have the metallic grimlock and swoop on pre-order and hope we get a metallic slag, sludge, and snarl in time...i opened the planet x insecticons this weekend and was a little disappointed by the lack of wrist swivels, but they're still pretty cool sculpts; i expect the dinobots are similar...

    I saw a few video reviews and I think Quirinus does actually have wrist swivels, and it's just Caelus and Neptune who lack some essential articulation. Though I could be wrong again on that front. The lack of hip ratchets does sound like a bummer, but if the hinges are tight and the figure is light, it shouldn't be too much of an issue theoretically. If he's fun to pose, is durable and is somewhat fun to flip back and forth, then that's good news for me.

    Just Quirinus and Vulcun will suffice, but if you also decide to throw in Caelus or the main siege cons I wouldn't mind that :)  Thanks again for the help!
    I can't speak for the others for certain, but Vulcun (Grimlock) does in fact have wrist swivels. He's one of my favourite figures that I own, hence my eagerness to order some other dinobots. With Caelus getting the metallic treatment, and the other dinobots having the potential to follow suit, I think now would be a good time to consider some options. At least that's how I'm looking at it anyways.

    @Whisper - okay, Slag actually has wrist swivel, upper arm swivel, and decent hips. No worries there. I attached a few pics with Vulcan and some WFC figures. They work together pretty well.

    Weak parts: pegs that hold his tail pieces in robomode and horn tips. Horn tips are sharp, and while it's hard to break them, tips still can break off if you abuse them. Like really abuse them, mine fell and it took me some time to notice there is a tip missing, and it was so long ago there is no point trying to find it to repair it.

    Pegs that tail attaches to are weird case - they do get stressed even if you transform him properly, but they still haven't broken off. I might have stressed them very early and don't remember it anymore, just make sure you align all levers that hold his tail just right and maybe you'll avoid this issue. You'll know what 'right way' is when you get him in hand, hence why I'm not sure if I've ever misaligned anything.

    Perfect! Thanks a ton! Yeah, he does look pretty good with Vulcun. Glad to hear that he's got good articulation to boot.
    Yeah, I remember reading about the tail issue, and it sounds like a bummer. Is it a minor threat/issue to be aware of? Or is it a deal breaker type of thing? For the most part I think I'm sold on the figure, but that's the one kind of thing that scares me...

    It's very minor, just make sure you don't force anything when you peg tail halves when going to robomode. They should attach with minimal pressure, if they don't - you probably need to flip lever 180 and it will fit nicely.
