They look so good together.
I think you might not be transforming Hoist right, he has good clearance and the fists don't need to be rotated. It isn't very clear but his arms slot into the hood deeper than one might think at first.
And here I was thinking how Prime vs Prime is gotta be scratching his head after that bombshell that Tonton dropped with the 1st figure of a new line thst hasn't even been properly revealed...
Most interesting this chapter in the never ending battle of early reviews
Earthrise Sunstreeker's "fake"/flip-over feet make me wonder if a Selects Punch/Counterpunch remold from Sunstreaker is in the cards for Kingdom. An extra swivel joint in the knees, maybe one in the foot and shoulder pads, a new backplate, a new dual head, slightly modded fists, and custom paint might be all it'd take. Doesn't seem like it'd be much more expense or take more effort than remolding Siege Ironhide into his Earthrise version.
Punch/counterpunch’s front end is his shoulders, not his feet, and he’s already got a damn near perfect update
Looks good, but not worth $80 when I have the Siege ones.
They are pushed in right, I double checked via lots of images and reviews and it's all the same, and the clearance is very minimal.
Again.. flat surfaces is one thing, but anything that's not and that 0.5-1 mm is far from great.
Well, I might be fine with about 5 of those you've mentioned. We'll see if Hasbro wants more of my money or not next year....
For clarity sakes (and for my sanity's sake) does your Hoist look like this? Because I don't see the purpose of rotating the fists when transformed like this
I may have missed it, but do the ER and Siege Datsun Bros have the same shoulder peg holes? I'm wondering if the shoulder cannons are interchangeable.
Damn it, why did I invest in all these crappy cybertronian versions.
I'm not sure but it looks like the same slots judging by pics. I would be surprised if they are different. So far I think all the shoulder weapons like Wheeljack, Sideswipe, etc. have been the same. No reason to change that now.
You planning to use Siege Smokescreen's shoulder guns on the Earthrise version? That is my plan for now.
Because none of us would have expected earthrise to remold them for earthrise
I currently only have Prowl. I usually don't buy multiples of the same mold, so this would be my first Smokescreen, but I did buy Barricade for my son. Since I can't steal his weapons (without being a terrible dad), I'm probably going to go with the Matrix Workshop cannons if they fit.
Well that checks off Bluestreak I like prowl but I wasn't a fan of Bluestreak. It is a good toy I just don't want it.
That's how I do my hoist, looks fine imo plus don't have to add nail polish or glue if the hands did get loose
just the tip!
I would greatly appreciate if someone can clear something up for me for my collection of this trilogy.
For the three core seekers and datsuns for both Siege and Earthrise how were you supposed to obtain all of them?
For Siege seekers if I recall correctly Starscream and Thundercracker were retail releases sold separately
Skypwarp was an amazon exclusive and now only available at an astronomical markup
For earthrise seekers Starscream is available seperately and Skywarp and Thundercracker are available in a two-pack.
For siege datsuns Prowl was a retail release, Smokescreen was a generations select and Bluestreak was only available as the third 35th anniversary packaging.
For earthrise datusns: Prowl will only be available in the two-pack with Ironhide (amazon only?), Bluestreak and Smokescreen will be standalone retail releases.
Do I have this correct?
Nope! BlueStreak is an Amazon exclusive
and Asian online retailers. Got mine from robotkingdom. Shipped this morning
