    As someone who has the Cybertron Optimus on his shelf, I don't think you are looking at these the right way. Cybertron Optimus is very cool, but he is a brick.

    • His feet never sit flat making him look silly (he doesn't even really have actual feet, just lumps coming out of the calf)
    • He cannot hold his cannons like in the show.
    • He falls over easily (or at least mine does now, hips are unreliable)
    • His hands do not rotate separately from the arm.
    • His hands are not compatible with anything other than his own items and the bots who combined with him (Leobreaker and Wingsaber.)
    If you aren't a fan that's fine, but having the Voyager prime in hand, seige bots are excellent quality wise.

    Good points, also a direct comparison of a 2005 figure to a 2019 figure without including economic data is unfair. Each figure is a mild reflection of their eras economic conditions etc this includes factors other than just inflation, oil price and raw materials, theres also transportation, drivers, pilots, secure travel routes, engineering etc. In my Opinion SIEGE is the best quality we've had in a while, far better than all of the Prime Wars Trilogy and well worth retail prices.

    I would love to have an homage to both RID Omega Prime and Energon Optimus Supreme, some kind of combination of Leader Prime and Omega that they call Omega Prime but has elements of RID and Energon

    Also, when you take off the jet pack(w super head/chest) I think if you flip out the smaller head it would be a pretty nice Star Convoy homage... :D

    I hope a 3rd party company will make extended legs or something for Prime, Magnus and Shockwave to make them a little taller just match the sizes of leader class figures from the Prime Wars trilogy.

    Okay well, unfortunately this is a HUGE and mean HUGE bag of missed opportunities by Hasbro. SO many high hopes for this one because one would expect the new version be better than the original, at least match it! Right?!

    Siege Leader Prime is just another voyager figure with a clothing option, great... Total pass for me.

    "BUT WHY...HE"S SO AWESOME!!!"

    First off, no way to move the wings to create flying truck mode like original...I like flying car modes.
    Second, in the original the extra crap normally used to make the super mode converts into gun/battle station. Not here!

    What made Galaxy Force Prime so amazing is you could do so much with the figure. It would have made since for HAsbro to recreate EVERY aspect of that in Siege Leader Prime given the minor gimmick in the line.

    I'm sticking with Voyager Prime, Cog and 6gun for my super prime needs.

    Love this. Is a pretty great update.

    I just hope they're preparing a Wing Saber upgrade like with the original.

    Super mode looks great and that's really all I need to see with a figure like this.

    The way I see it is that you don't need to actually partsform it for the inner bot mode. I think they can just hang on the back for that. Then for the super robot mode they would partsform on like the rest of the armor.

    This guy is clearly meant to do more with some other figure.
    I know everyone's noticed the extra heels, but there's also the peg hole on his back/butt/grill and a couple obvious connection points on the wing pack that currently serve no purpose.

    It makes me want him even more!

    I suspect that there is more to this Prime than meets the eye

    For $50 I would have liked the fake wheels to have been painted for truck mode.
