    Me too. After the amazing Takara releases of Titans Return, the unified Hasbro and Takara releases are hurting Takara’s quality.

    Kinda disappointed with Barricade. They got rid of the black painted legs he had in the renders.

    That doesn't bother me all too much. He still looks good without it. The thing that bothers me though is that they changed his forearm colors from black to that light purple. The black breaks up the colors quite nicely, and it just doesn't look good without it.

    Not really. I much prefer getting figures with solid construction and decent paintjobs around the world to subpar molds that get splattered with paint in Japan.

    The quality of Siege is far superior to anything from the Prime Wars Trilogy IMO.

    I'm interested to know what the writing on barricades doors say.

    The top line is police but theres 3 little lines of text below it

    To be fair most of the Seige toys are already (almost literally) splattered with paint to get that battle-damaged effect most people don’t like.

    Did you translate it, or is that a well educated guess?

    I’ll give you that Siege molds are better than Prime Wars Trilogy but all of Takara’s Legends releases look far better than the Hasbro CW and TR releases.

    I am actually very dam# happy were actually getting a Barricade based off Prowl... I actually hadn\'t had the time to get my hands on three Refractors..  He is a must..  Shockwave going to have to happen aswell...  I\'ve been consumed with the Botbots challenge.. Wonder whats next for them?  Like new tribes,  hopefully we have a few members that carry over from year one tribes..  I\'m curious as to who just might show in the next two chapters the current Trilogy.

    Takara typically did toon deco whereas hasbro did toy deco. Siege figures generally go with the toon deco (aside from soundwaves visor) so what we are getting with siege is more or less what Takara would have sold, not hasbro

    The movies made me a huge Barricade fan. So this guy is bought on site with Thundercracker.

    I just noticed. Prowl is completely clean. He has no battle damage paint. Why is that?
