    they're pinned in so if you can punch a pin out and get replacements but don’t mistake you can swap a Seige ones hands coz it’s not the same kind of attachment

    His post was about Astrotrain being taller than all of the voyagers when based on the image I found he's already shorter than Siege voyager Optimus.

    I'm specifically talking about the base figures included with leader class, not the leader class figs beefed up with armor or accessories.

    From what's been announced so far, I'm interested in Cliffjumper and Grapple definitely, with Hoist a likely pickup as well. Trying to focus on characters I don't already have in any form.

    In all of the renders his hands are blue (as are the panels on his inner legs). I am inclined to believe that the copy on display was using prototype parts.

    To me it looks like he has the double-sided pegs and hands like Siege Impactor.

    Can we merge, or would it be better to have two separate threads?

    I keep him for my "Reignscream" combiner! I will probably pass on this Starscream myself. Hopefully they will make the Coneheads!

    They could switch the money for that "paintapp" to blue paint for the hands!

    Same. Renamed my PotP screamer Dominus and I prefer the Tetrajet version to this version.

    I, for one, would like to merge after the last wave of Siege is released...

    Hasbro confirmed those are the final colors. It's on video. The debate is closed.

    Hasbro confirmed they wouldn't be molded in blue plastic, they could still be painted blue at release.

    I got into a heated argument about BB becoming a retool from CJ. Please tell me I’m not crazy

    I could see them sharing some parts and engineering. Not sure if I'd call that a remold though. But FWIW I don't think you're crazy.

    We're definitely gonna see a Bumblebee out of that Cliffjumper but I don't think Hasbro will reuse Cliffjumper's muscle car alt. mode, Hasbro will probably use the Compact/Mini Hatchback design we've seen on his Legends class figures.

    Runamuck will undoubtedly be a simple head swap and repaint w/ a new set of accessories.

    Didn’t someone say it was confirmed at NYCC that Bumblebee will NOT be made from Cliffjumper?

    Doubt it, but they will reuse that CJ for BB in some way. I know it

    We'll see, my gut was right about EARTHRISE OP I'm trusting it on this too.
