Siege Ratchet listed In walgreens system
perfect example haha
Gotta agree with you. I love the design, especially car mode with those knobby tires, etc. However, it always felt like an alternate universe version that didn't quite fit in my mind with how Springer should look. I'm loving the return to a G1 aesthetic that Siege is mostly going for. This doesn't mean there isn't room for Nick Roche versions (as you put it) of long standing and well trodden G1 characters, but for my money I tend to prefer designs that don't get too crazy.
Generations Springer was pretty amazing. Overall, he looked great and he came at a time when it felt like they were really cutting back, yet Springer came out and was large, complex, and had a great color scheme.
That being that, I don't really see these two figures competing. I know they're both Springer, but they're two very different styles. Just saying, as a fan of Springer, I'm happy to have both representations in my collection.
Excited for this springer even though i love the generstions one. They are nailing the head sculpts in this line imo.
This is a more g1 version. Bring it
Reflector is all kinds of awesome (I even like him rolled up into a cube).
Brunt seems to be shaping up as the best of three armor bots (that alternate/fan mode looks like something from Beast Machines).
Springer looks great, though I am not sure about that green though, it’s a bit too ‘toyish’ for my preferences for Springer. But I’ll make judgement once I have him in hand and paired up with the rest.
Thundercracker and Red are remolds of excellent figures. Bot modes look great, but I think they're less effective in altmode than SS and SS. Not sure I need them (though the prospect of having 3 tetrajets lined up together on stands is enticing).
Hmm.... I was reluctant on buying that Firestormer Pack since I care little for G2 figures. But I just might end up swapping the heads of Red Alert and G2 Sideswipe just like my plans for Starscream and the upcoming Thundercracker.
IMO, this face just looks better on Red Alert:
Meanwhile Slamdance could be part of my "Moonbase 2" faction with Blaster as commander if they ever make a new Voyager class version (I really don't like the FOC one anymore).
I think, like with Thundercracker you need to see them with other figures. Just to see how they mash. Particular for Springer is Arcee and your Ultra Magnus. If they work it is good.
thundercracker looks so nice with Starscream.
These shots of Thundercracker & Springer together confused me when the first showed up as they're now known to be in split cases, with the case together cancelled

IS Thundercracker in wave 3 or not?
No it's not
I'll never understand how Toy Factories work.
Quick, someone (not me) buy this and tell us what the code is!

true just wanted people to know if they wanted it early

I did the face swap with Starscream. They both look so much better.
Does anybody know if Siege Springer scales well with Wei Jiang OSKO Arcee? Pictures would be much appreciated
