this might be the only version of the siege mold i get
I'm about to spend $20 for green windows, aren't I?
I get why this exists, but they totally should’ve made this the Netflix figure..
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
Pretty cool havent picked this figure up and this redeco is a good version
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.
Only mold I see are green windows I like figure with darker colors makes look less cartoony what do I know every movie news someone says movies should be more like g1 cartoons forget bringing in new people in make new more fans of transformers
Except they didn't get it wrong, it's a deco based on the Netflix show
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.
I haven't "meh" 'd this hard in a long time.
\"we are NOT the DECPTICONS\"
\"Tell me that you FORGIVE ME!\"
Honestly getting this because of how memorable/ memeorable this Optimus is
