    Yeah, can only echo what's already been said----faux toy-based alt-mode kibble, on a $$$$ statue that can't transform? It's like an "anti-MP" or something. It's super toy-accurate, asides from the whole "being a transforming toy" part.

    Ngl this looks really coooooool
    Well first of all it’s not a statue, and it’s not gonna hit 4 digits, that’s just ridiculous. But I understand what you mean.

    For those who didn't like the other OS siege primes, hopefully it's not black mamba under another name. This looks very good and I don't want any QC issues.

    Think of it as a Hot Toys figure. 12ish inches, highly detailed, well articulated, led lights. The movie DLX figures are great.

    Except, you can get the same thing, kibble and all, And transforming, just a bit smaller, for $30.

    I love the concept, but the reason I love Threezero figures is the lack of kibble, the mechanical detail, and the poseability. This figure looks good, but not BB movie DLX good.

    As a positive note, I love the scar on the eye. I wanted the Netflix figure to have it, so that’s a small plus.

    I think Megs will look incredible, but I’m guessing that is as far as the line will go.

    This is like the toy version of a novelization of a movie that's based on a comic.

    Well, then that is for you. I don't think you have to convince people what they should get or not. I'm not buying it but if some people want it and are willing to pay that price, I'm okay for them, I'm even happy for them.

    I see.  Obviously it\'s for the Netflix thing.  It\'s interesting to see a premium version that doesn\'t have needing to transform in the way, yet still has the kibble because the animation model was based on the version that did.

    I just can't get over how tone deaf this seems. The whole appeal of the WFC line is basically being budget MPs, but that still means they're subject to budget. The cartoon seems like its done on a budget since they so literally translated the toy designs. But this release isn't "budget" at all. I'd almost say its like those giant versions of classic retail figures Gentle giant does..but those have a sort of art-chic appeal. This..I really don't know.

    Like, right now Siege Optimus is probably my 6 year old nephew's favorite toy. He sleeps with the thing. In 20 years time he'd probably love this. But who's $200 attached to the siege Optimus design right now?

    Umm.. wow.

    Hasbro seems pretty confident in this show, huh?
    I mean, I could see this kind of thing getting produced from online demand, but literally no one has asked for this... yet.

    This radiates with real SURE WHY NOT energy, and thats fine. Its totally, very fine. After seeing Red figures, Beast Wars exploding out of the woodwork, and an 86 Studio Series line, bring it, i aint turning my nose up in the slightest.

    Definitely a peculiar choice. Just like people are pointing out, the show is based off the toy with just a few bells and whistles to make him a fully animated character. I am sure the ThreeZero one will replicate that better. but I'm not sure I have a open slot for that in my collection.
