I updated the pics, felt rushed yesterday.
I went through this last year, and picked up the main five Exo Dinobots. I wasn’t blown away by them. Honestly, I’ve started collecting the Planet X Dinobots to be my Siege Dinobots. I do think they fit better, and with them all getting rereleases, it’s a good time to grab them. Heck, even the red Grimlock variant makes a great Cruellock.
How do the Siege Deluxes and Voyagers look standing next to the CW Deluxes and Voyagers?
Smaller, bigger, about the same size?
he would make a good Nova Prime
I have a decent mix in here...
You may need to zoom in a bit, but you can see CW Wheeljack and PotP Jazz in front of Jetfire there.
Plus the TR guys on the left....
Notice Prowl in front of Optimus to the right? For a while I had CW Prowl there instead, and he's easily a full head taller than Siege Prowl.
So, picture that.
And Generations Sunstreaker from 2008 (not pictured) looms over Siege Sideswipe! Like full head and shoulders taller...
But honestly, they all scale pretty well together!
I got my Red Wing today. I now have all 7 of the Seekers. I LOVE the tetrajet style! Really well done. Here are a few pics from all angles. Nothing special, but hopefully gives those who care an idea of what to expect. This was a fun and simple transformation. Not overly complex and yet still enjoyable. I have always loved the engineering behind Transformers toys. This is the first of the 19 Siege figures I own to be opened. I'm holding off until I have a display area set-up to keep the dust off hehe!
Just a question for those who own TC. I just switched RWs face(not his orange lightpiping) with SS. Looking good! I like to ask if TCs face paint is aluminum silver? RWs is like dull light whitish gray so transferring it to SS makes sense, making him stand out from the seekers. I'm planning to switch it with SWs, being one of the shock trooper horde.
Btw, are the Rainmakers' faces also painted like SW and SS? Silver aluminum?
P.S. My Rainmakers are still waiting to be delivered(like a POL of RKs) and, well, TC hasn't been released yet from JP. where I ordered from.
Just some mini bot madness....
Kind of wish though that Thundercracker had the stern face that Screamer has while Screamer & Skywarp had the smirk face since it'd work better on them.
Oh well I now have all seven but that's not enough, we need the Welcome Committee and the Coneheads now damn it!
"Hey you like pranks?"
"Me too! Hey you want to go lay a huge dump on Barricade while he's powered down?"
"Sup Scourge, Fracas reporting for duty"
"All right now we're dealing with firepower"
"Hey Spinister I'm here!"
"Wait who are you?"
"I'm Shrute, one of your Targetmasters?"
"But Shrute is here in my hand with Hairsplitter"
"Oh well this is awkward"
Can confirm Thundercracker has the same metallic face (finish, not expression!) as Starscream:
Schrute is hairsplitter, the other guy is singe
Minibots don’t get enough love
Saturday morning fun time. Might need an upgrade for Red Alert.
Don't put Highjump and Powertrain into their combined weapon mode. The stress of putting them together and then pulling them apart makes the plastic squeak and give in ways that make your stomach churn, plus the paint comes off of Powertrain's head. -_- Ugh.
And because all the cool.kids are doing it. The Class of '86.
Can anybody with the air strike patrol and 10 pack show how nightstrike looks with the other two ? Please
Got this set yesterday!
No pics yet, but my initial thoughts are:
*Love the box artwork!
*Skywarp is an excellent redeco of the Seeker mold. I actually really like the charcoal grey as opposed to jet black, adds some character I think. Makes him look very sleek in alt mode. The chest plate is attached much better than on Starscream, hasn’t popped off once so far.
One of his null rays is a little loose in the left shoulder, may have to break out the floor polish.
*Terror-daxtyl is a nice re-color of Pteraxadon. Aside from the purple, the paint apps are duller than Pteraxadon so it doesn’t pop as much. But I’m a fan of the mold, so I can live with it.
*Fracas is a nice redeco of Firebolt, actually looks better than Firebolt IMO. Decepticon colors suit the mold well with the darker plastics.
*Shrute is a horrible name. I will be calling him Hairsplitter as is intended. Another well done redeco of Aimless. The paint apps on all the Battle Masters are very nice, I think.
*The blast effects are the same molds as released before, just in different colors to mix it up. More blast effects is always a good thing!
*This set really makes me want Thundercracker more! I still can live without Redwing and the Rainmakers. All-in-all happy with this set. Still undecided if I want the Alphastrike set........
Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I agree. I got my order today. I havent taken anything out of the package except to look. I love the artwork. I got this to complete the Seekers. I dont much care about the little guys one way or another. I like to have them because I want a complete set, but yeah... The blast effects. Yes!!!
I wish Red Wing came with some You can never have enough! Time to buy some third party blast effects hehe
