    Ordered a $40 Siege Galaxy Force Prime from Ebay on Thursday, and he arrived a little bit ago.

    He's a much nicer figure than I expected.

    coat the tab/block with any of the usual friction-increasing substances(pledge/glue/clear nail polish) and let it dry properly.

    Definitely. GU OP is much better in person.

    Which part? The actual knee joint itself or the knee joint tabbing into the lower leg?

    Ugh! I guess there is a street date for the Siege Thundercracker. I found 3 at 2 different Targets and was not able to buy them. What other figures are supposed to come out 10/6?

    My solution for figures that have been out for a bit and if you still have the box is to contact Hasbro Customer Service.

    I reached out the other day through their chat about my broken Siege Chromia figure and they asked me for some box info and they said they would replace it free of charge. When they asked me for my alternate figure in case they didn’t have Chromia, they mentioned Ironhide and Sixgun. I told the service rep that I wouldn’t be opposed to either, even though I had them both, but that Ironhide was so loose and floppy that parts popped off every touch and she’s said she would get that replaced too.

    Two days later I had a brand new Chromia and Ironhide on my doorstep. I would have taken just a replacement foot cover piece, as I told her, but I’m so beyond thankful for the service and support. I hope that this helps people to get their items replaced when it can’t be returned to the store, and I also hope people don’t take advantage of their service.

    A shuttle in the hand (or claw)...

    Classics Astrotrain just fits in Omega's claw. Siege Leader Astrotrain? Not likely.

    These two bad boys today! Man, as much as I prefer ‘The Rebirth’ to the Japanese Headmasters series, there’s something about the colours on these that make them jump out at you (I can practically hear the ‘Head On!’ opening theme to Headmasters as soon as I look at them!)

    I can’t wait till more Cassettes come out, here’s hoping we can get Slugfest & Overkill as well as the usual Buzzsaw & Rumble repaints for Soundwave / Soundblaster this time!

    I have absolutely NO love for DBZ, but it happened to be on as background noise and these explosion scenes made a good backdrop

    After years of waiting, it's good to finally have a decent CHUG Ironhide and Ratchet figure that isn't compromised in some way.

    The knee joint tabbing into the leg. (Oddly enough, the tab doesn’t even make a snap sound when it goes in)

    Blackjack and Hyperdrive are a much better use of these molds than Swindler and Roadhandler.

    The colors are better, IMO. Their faction symbols don’t clash with their colors, or placement, as much as the Race Car Patrol’s did.

    These guys look so much sleeker and they hold together better too.
    1C86CF2C-4DDE-4D17-B9EE-0D501F984F6A.jpeg
    Still not much in the way of poseability, but nothing kept popping off them while I was transforming them. At least on my copies. I like the new head sculpts and decos, but I wish Blackjack had a bit more purple on his torso area.

    These guys just pop, in a good way, a little bit better than their Autobot counterparts. I dig it.

    The left knee tab, I believe, is a universal issue. It's not as tight as the right. It's not severe enough on mine to affect things significantly. Pledge (https://www.amazon.com/Pledge-11182-Revive-Transparent-Liquid/dp/B000ARPH4C) is the most common and easiest friction agent to use (as long as you leave it alone for a day to dry and cure), but for Springer, may not be worth the effort.

    Need to make sure you have the correct port: kneeport.jpg

    Even with a medicine dropper, this would be tough to apply correctly to all 4 walls and not have it all pool to the bottom. I think the top one (relative to this photo), though, is the most important, so you could just focus on that one first. Needle applicator would be easier but still tough.

    Omega Supreme is great and has me even more excited for a Titan Class Scorponock than ever before. The joints on Omega are far superior to all previous Titans, the degrees of movement between the teeth dont give you the issues of older Titans where you get like 3 clicks and all super exaggerated either legs straight or super wide unusable A stance.
