    I’m more confused they saved the cartoon-accurate Siege Prime for this line and not the actual Netflix one.

    Cool. So 2 new premium repaint lines by TakaraTomy. Perfect Finish Studio Series and Perfect Finish Generations. Very curious to see where they take this.

    Hoping they'll include Studio Series Hot Rod somewhere down the line.

    I am honestly tired of the Siege Optimus mold, but Bumblebee looks good here. Not sure it's worth the upcharge to import, but it has a nice finish.

    I wonder, who are some other characters you think deserves to be in the PF series? I don't really collect SS but a few Generations characters come to mind for the GR portion. Like maybe Wheeljack in less muted colors, a repainted Sunstreaker, ER Prime with white thighs? At this point I'm just spitballing lol.

    I’m probably willing to buy the siege Optimus mold again. Looks good

    Hmmm, I reckon Studio Series Prime and Starscream could look even better with a more premium paint job.

    Thinking about it some more, I'm definitely expecting some Kingdom beasts to show up down the line.

    lol, the boxes made me think they were ko's.

    it's cool to see takara giving figures premium paint jobs and i really hope they do jeep bee and blitzwing, i've been hoping for a special deco of those 2 for a while(something akin to battled damaged rotf megatron)

    Hm. I never did get Siege Optimus and have been thinking he'd work better for my collection than the ER one. Still, I don't know if I like the green and then there's the question of price. Exactly how much are these things going to cost?

    I never got VW Bee, either and don't intend to. Far too much back kibble.

    Eh, I honestly can do without. Thought the BB movie was meh. I have the Jeep Bee to pose with my Blitzwing and that'll do for me.
