    I feel a tad like this is something I'd comment on in Radicons, without paying the higher price for. The algae green really takes away from the figure though. Deco wise, it seems like the only one that really had the best look was the cel shaded.

    I personally love this figure, I've had it preordered since it was available to do so.

    I like the siege mold more than I like the earthrise version, and this deco with the green windshield, perfect for me!

    Honestly the biggest thing for me about this figure is that it's the only WFC-T Optimus with that eye scar that he has on literally every bit of associated promotional art somehow!

    The green windows look so terrible and somehow make the terrible alt mode look even terribler.

    the battle damage printing is... interesting? I assume the dot screen is part of the process, but looks really weird.

    You know, sometimes I'm happy Takara decos aren't a thing anymore. All that extra paint and it ends up looking worse imo.

    If I didn\'t already have siege prime, I\'d consider it.  The wear is a bit better, more worn and dirty than flash sprayed in splatter.  The green feels weird, that may just be because they don\'t use it often.  Really really hope they got all the grime deco out of their system now.

    I can't hate the Seige Prime. It's a pretty nice figure even with the kibble.

    Or just some tweaks to the arms. The arm kibble is the biggest sore spot for me with this figure. The new paint job is nice.

    Kinda feels like previous siege Prime was imperfect now which makes me feel sad for him

    I would feel bad with myself if I go and spend 50 on this figure despite if I have the original or not.

    The packaging looks different than the original mock-up.
