    I think this will pair nicely with the Wave 1 Netflix Megatron. If they do a Premium Siege Megatron, it would have to be degrees nicer than the Netflix and spoiler Megatrons and I honestly don't see that happening. I will say I am surprised there are no physical bonuses. Not a backdrop, Charlie slug figure, Energon Cube, etc.

    Please give us a clean WFC Springer from this. I don't care if it's $55, it's cheaper than buying a Siege copy and paying someone a commission to clean for me.

    Siege Megatron will be part of the 6 figure line up in the Premium Finish WFC line.
    A big difference between this and Hasbro's Netflix line, is that these guys appear to be completely painted from head to toe.
    Very curious how Premium Finish Megs will stack up against the gorgeous Netflix release.

    Did I miss it, or is there a list of the Siege Premium Paint figures?

    @Fc203 posted the identity of the blacked out images earlier in the thread. The WFC releases are: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ultra Magnus, Soundwave, Springer, and Wheeljack.

    Which, aside from Springer, has got to be about the lamest lineup, from a standpoint most of those figures have had multiple releases in a variety of decos as it is....
    (Optimus Prime: 4 or 5, Megatron: I’ve lost count, 6 or 7?, Ultra Magnus: 3, Soundwave: 5 I think (counting the Soundblasters), Wheeljack: 2

    I get they seem to be going for screen accurate, but I bet they’d have sold a lot more units if they’d gone for guys with really lacking decos like Earthrise Smokescreen and really blinged them out.

    I might bite on Springer if he looks good. I don’t understand the need for YET ANOTHER Wheeljack repaint as himself. Meanwhile, characters like Slicer haven’t been updated yet. Even an Energon Downshift deco would be nice (the tan parts). But it’ll probably be “WFC Wheeljack but with different battle damage”.

    So maybe in for Springer. Maybe for Soundwave. Definitely in for Ratchet.

    The strangest thing about re-releasing Springer is he wasn’t even IN the Netflix show. Maybe they go for a clean TFTM’86 deco and he becomes a defect SS86 release?

    Lmao I'm also from Australia and was cringing a lot at the price. Do yourself a favour and just get it from Ohmyprimus here: [Pre-order] Takara Tomy Hasbro Transformers Premium Finish - PF WFC-01 Optimus Prime
    It'll be roughly 60aud +20aud shipping

    I’d like it even better if they repainted him into Drift... but he wasn’t in the show either.

    I look forward to seeing the rest of these. I'm passing on Prime because I have enough versions of the Siege Prime mold, lol. I'll wait and see on the other WFC figures. I already have them all and don't really feel like they need repaints, but I will go case by case.

    Now Studio Series on the other hand, I am VERY excited for! Unlike WFC they seem to have targeted some of the harder to find characters like Ratchet, SS 32 Prime, and SS18 Bumblebee. I don't have any of these, and the Bumblebee looks fantastic. I pre ordered it immediately. All they need now is to get Iron Hide in there...

    If they continue this series, I'd love to see them tackle Earth Rise Ratchet with a more G1 accurate paint scheme.

    Agreed. Completely.
