    Nah they're boosters.

    and you're ignoring an awesome botmode and butterfly shoulders for enhanced aiming with his null rays

    Can barely see his bot mode for what a greebely mess his lower legs, torso and even helmet are. And in a line that’s going for (way to much IMHO) Sunbow accuracy, why on earth did they get his null rays so wrong?

    Starscream looks good enough to buy one of the mold. My preference is Thundercracker, so that’s the only Tetrajet seeker I’ll seek out (pun intended).
    The mold hasn’t won me over like a lot of the other Siege figures. But I’m a TC fan and this is the first proper Tetrajet (official) version so he’s on the buy list.

    Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the mold, but I AM a fan of blue bots, and I think Thundercracker looks pretty good and wears those colors well, and would look good with Siege Megs. I even think he looks good with Caliburst like they showed off in TC's renders, so I might pick that guy up to give the blue jet an extra gun.

    Springer I have a mighty need for now, and I'm not even sure why. I'm not a huge fan of the character, but the toy just captures his G1 look so perfectly it's almost magical. Man, Siege has me and my roommate by the danged nose. XD

    I have T30 Springer but I'm interested in Siege Springer too... thankfully he doesn't look like a dirty, greebly mess like some Siege figures. Nice G1 likeness. Out of the whole line he's the one I'll most likely get (maybe Jetfire too).

    Thundercraker is a MUST HAVE , I would love to see ALL six seekers.

    Optimus Prime is so disappointed, he is so inferior to Cybertron Leader Optimus Prime, a transformers from more than a decade ago. An open letter to the CHPS era, how the quality has decreased with the years.

    That's another thing he has in common with TR Hardhead.

    I think I will stick T30 Springer. I like that mold better.

    I was thinking of using a gift card I got for Christmas on Ultra Magnus or Shockwave, but I might save it for Cybertron Prime instead. Plus, I never got the original figure. It is one of several figures from the Cybertron line I missed out on.

    I think cross-toy compatibility. There is another pic of him with his null rays.
    I guess people have noticed.
    22.50?! What the heck is going on here?! :eek: 
    That seems to be about it outside of exclusives and any potential secrets Hasbro has been able to actually keep secret.

    What are you talking about? It's obvious that he was very disciplined with his calf raises, lol.

    This will be my first Springer. Never noticed before that they went animation chest in green instead of toy yellow. Oh Amazon orders are live again for these 2 as of a few minutes ago. The Amazon notification actually worked for once. (edit: beaten,see links in other post)

    Hasbro have been p!$$ up in a brewery at their reveals for ages.

    I mean at NYCC they managed to reveal a character in the official images they were months away from showing. Maybe they should have been clearer with websites that they could put the product pages up on 17th, AFTER the show rather than 16th before it was on. As it was it looks like some sites read that date wrong earlier in the week.

    And that's before stuff that's really leaked like Leader Op.
