    I’m lucky enough to be in attendance at the con this year so here are some photos of these lines on display. There are movie bots but they are already out at retail

    I believe these are the first up close pictures of botbots in person

    NOTE: This post has been merged with Paris for some reason. My pictures come from the LONDON show in England, not the Paris show in France

    Sheesh, talk about uninspired for the Siege display.

    If you want them to be static, pose them like Cog was. If you want them to be dynamic, don't just stick one arm out and call it a day.

    And for goodness sake, can you please mount Megatron's cannon on his forearm, where it belongs?

    No zoomed-out group shots? =( Damn. I was hoping to bask in the glory of Siege's scale.

    Cool pics though. The Botbots are neat li'l fuckers.

    Botbots are going to dominate my life.
    I'm not that excited for Siege. I don't do movieverse.

    So it's Botbots for me from here on out.

    Not to mention that his sword was attached to his other forearm rather than in his hand, lol. I love the Siege figures, I think they all look great and I even like the weathering. The BotBots look like fun little figures as well. I get the feeling 2019 is gonna be a good year for Transformers.

    You can pose throttle bots more dynamically than those Siege figures. Oh well, they're still cool.

    That Siege display is probably the worst Transformers display I've ever seen. Almost every single figure is mistransformed or just wrong in some way... Who the hell did they get to set that up?

    Edit: Okay, the deluxes are fine I guess... but both Optimus and Megatron.. geez... they deserve better.

    No fucks given with the Siege figures like a random noob set those up. Wow couldn't find someone who liked Transformers to set that up????

    Multiple mis-transformations. Only Hound looks okay, and couldn't be bothered to properly out his pistol all the way into his hand. Wow

    Okay, the Siege Figures are really confusing me. It seems like the battle damage paint on all the deluxe figures that have it has been made so subtle that it's barely even noticeable - but the voyager figures now have battle damage paint that's even more blatant than it was in any previous render or photo. If I were to guess, I'm thinking this decision has nothing to do with listening to fans complaints about the paint, but was purely down to cost. Despite the fact that deluxe figures are 20 dollars now, apparently it's too expensive to put the same amount of paint on them as voyagers.

    Changeables are here again.

    Looking at the pictures of Botbots and Siege again, I'm almost convinced that Hasbro's TF lineup for this year was done on a series of dares.

    "Hey,man,I'm doing a series of TFs in Cybertronian forms that people have wanted for years.Bet you can't top that!"
    "Oh yeah? I'm going to revive the McDonalds Changeables as a series of 1-inch toys with blindpacks! You'll see! You'll all see!"
    "Pfft! That'll never sell! MY idea's BETTER! Geewun for life!
    "Bet you ten bucks for it."
    "You're on!"

    Months later:
    *Siege designer looks at TFW BotBots threads*
    "Man,I never thought the reaction to BotBots would be this good.*sighs* Here's your ten bucks,man."
    "Yes! I told you,man! BotBots forever! Woo!"*does victory dance*

    *The Siege designer waits until the Botbots designer has left the room and looks around furtively. He looks at his design sketches.Slowly,he leans over and whispers to them.*
    "Don't listen to him.I still love you."

    You know what, Bot bots is the first time you can actually say "Happy meal Transformers toys" and it's accurate and not a bad thing.

    Bet was over who bought the office lunch. But otherwise you're not wrong. xD
