    I'd expect a MUCH higher level of fit & finish in a line called "Premium Finish" – 10% better then the mainline release isn't really cutting it IMHO, I was expecting United/Legends/Movie the Best level paint jobs (which I don't think is unreasonable; this is more like "how they should have been in the mainline" anyways.

    He looks good for what it's trying to do. Are the red parts painted like Siege Sideswipe? Can't really tell from the picture.

    I was kinda hoping they would finally release a clean copy of the mold in G1 accurate colors. Meaning no battle damage and other effects paint.

    So far this premium one does the battle damage best. But I don't think this is for me though...

    What a pointless repaint. They could have given him shiny metallic paint, removed the stupid battle damage, or go for something wild like a blue Diaclone prime. Instead they basically gave the Seige green windows and different battle damage nobody adked for

    What is with the silver on his lower legs? That part was blue in the cartoon and original toy. Why do they keep getting it wrong when it’s more accurate and preferable to leave it unpainted?

    This repaint is very specifically "Anime" accurate Netflix War for Cybertron: Siege Optimus Prime.

    Also, not everything is MP.

    Ho, that's subjective. I hate the blue vents.

    I don't quite get what everyone's getting confused over. This is a screen accurate deco of Optimus Prime from the Siege and Earthrise shows.

    This should have been the regular release, just another way of letting you buy the same toy 5 times over

    May be in for Springer since I missed out on the Siege iteration of the guy.

    Will check back in a few months when he's up to bat though (assuming he's actually one of the teased releases in the WFC row).

    Nothing about this guy really screams premium to me. If some one told me this was just a two pack or some other repaint I'd not question it. I was kinda expecting metallic paint apps etc. It's still a nice toy but not worth seeking out for what some stores are asking.

    I think that there are more fans of the 80s cartoon than the Netflix show, which should have kept the blue leg vents as well.

    Except the Netflix show was based on the WFC toys, which had Optimus with silver/grey vents.

    That's irrelevant, it's a WFC figure with a deco based on the Netflix show. They didn't get anything wrong.
