    Whoa, too much waste of plastic.

    Most of them are pretty easy pass.

    For Siege I meant both Netflix and do not even realize that G2 is from ER.

    I don't think this Megatron does enough differently from the Walmart Netflix version to really justify it's existence. Maybe it'll look nicer with better in hand photos though.

    Surprised more people are complaining about Megatron's millionth use of the mold than being excited about a second chance for a BB Movie Prime, I for one am thankful for a chance to finally get this without paying an arm and leg.

    God yes.
    That Apeface mold desperately needs some better paint apps.

    The jizzy white they use has gotta go

    Ok, if I collected movie figures I'd be going nuts over that Prime. He looks great.

    Same. A while back I gave in and bought a KO version of the figure and it's okay. I'll see about maybe picking up one of these bad boys

    I too am looking forward to getting SS38 a second time. It's a great figure, but the head twisted off on my original one. This one looks even better, though I personally preferred the clear blue windows.

    Define "arm and a leg" because this is $50ish on Pulse.

    I wish HasTak did more repacks in Studio. So much good stuff is one-and-done driving up the secondary market.

    There are some nice paint app improvements over the original release, but it's definitely not worth the $50 plus tax. Also, I don't why Hasbro is removing so many figures in the Studio Series section. You have to actually type in a figures name in the search bar to find it (like Bonecrusher for example), but every figure that you have to do that for is sold out. As someone who never found Overload at retail, that's seriously aggravating.

    I love the subtle weathering, but those side windows being painted just throws it off for me. On the front, you have dark clear blue, but on the sides, you have bright opaque blue.

    I feel like I'm the only one that had really crappy tabs on my SS-38. I was so happy to finally find one at the time and it's a great figure from the waist up, but on mine the legs do not tab together properly at all so it's a floppy mess. He can barely even stand. It was so bad I almost tried to sell it immediately but I ended up keeping it because it's overall a very cool mold. Anyway, for the price I hope this one tabs better for those that want it.
