    Zetar is neat. I don’t give a rip about the Powerdashers as characters, so he’s going on the Decepticon shelf.


    Fanmade altmode to distinguish him from Brunt a little more:

    I also got Generations Selects Nightbird yesterday, and I have two thoughts:

    1. I’m glad I finally have a Nightbird.

    2. I’m glad I didn’t buy Siege Chromia.

    Nightbird is the one Siege figure I never once even considered.
    As for the Powerdashers, I initially didn't want them, but after getting Zetar, I now NEED the other three. Especially the Sixgun repaint. he looks so good!

    I feel like Nightbird is the first time I've wanted to bother with that mold at all. Closest I got prior was picking up Novastar for a buddy, though we've not yet arranged to get her to him. Not that Nightbird seems better or anything, I think it's just the colors I've liked most and I figure I might as well try that mold out at least once.

    In before Tigatron or Orangeitis: It's not the same mold! :p 
    There's some slight shared engineering but ultimately they are not the same.

    Thanks for your responses!

    My collection skews towards the little guys, so Omega wouldn’t ordinarily be on my radar, buuut if I can cram a Minibot in that rocket...

    I’ll just have to figure out how much shorter than Cliffjumper Gears is.

    Thanks again!

    Does anyone know a shade of paint that matches Jetfire’s blue head crest? Mine has a chip, and it’s been bugging me.

    Just pre-ordered Skywarp pack from Amazon for 43.50 euros.
    Pretty good price i think.
    Now the thing is, when will they ship it.
    Just like Greenlight and Jetfire not shipping the promised day. And i'm still waiting for it.

    BBTS and Entertainment Earth have them in stock. Not sure about shipping to Canada.

    Mine isn’t chipped as opposed to the plastic separating a teeny bit there. I may look into that later. I have various shades of Tamiya blue paints.

    Word is that Skyfire is currently on sale for $45 at Walmart and that some Targets are price matching.

    I'll stick with my T30 version since I'm not that big of a fan of'em. But paying just $45 for a Commander class just makes the idea of ME paying $50 for that Stumpy upcoming Astrotrain sound even sillier. But maybe Walmart will eventually slice his price by $20-$25 3 months after his release to. :D

    Dude, we get it. You don't like the Leaderclass pricepoint and particularly dislike Astrotrain. I do respect your opinions, but take time to appreciate the Siege stuff you do like and keep the thread (more or less) positive.

    Jetfire is worth $100 easy, don't get confused; and Astrotrain looks great, still on preorder. If you miss your $45 Jetfire because of Apathy I think you might regret it. It's honestly, perfection.
