    Retailer in HK just sent out pics for soliciting pre-orders for SS. So much for TT not releasing different paint apps for their versions of mainline toys!

    I understand that it’s considered a new “line”, but is it not the same Siege SS mold painted better?

    Just because it's the same mold doesn't mean it's a mainline releaae

    They did their identical mainline release already. This is a special subline of repaints (coming like 2.5 years after the original release).

    Also: First look of PF Studio Series Ratchet and Siege Starscream!

    I seriously see no reason for the Premium Finish Starscream to exist. $129 for a slightly duller Starscream? No thanks - and this is coming from the dude that fucking sleeps with Starscream.

    I live in Australia. It's $120. Not $129 like Prime was, but still overly expensive.

    Google tells me that's about $89 USD. It certainly is NOT worth that.

    Yeah, EB Games has a fucking fetish for overpricing their figures. $50 for SG Goldbug and $45 for Studio Series Dino is not acceptable at all IMO.

    Id like to see a Nacelle and Hooligan based off of their appearances in the IDW2 comics (they use this mold).
