    I have 43 out of the 68 figures in Siege. Presumably there will be as many in Earth Rise and as many in chapter 3 (the one that should tie-in with Unicron).

    ...I'm gonna need a bigger house :p

    Nah, I'm happy with my Galaxy Upgrade figure. I'm starting to get why folks are saying that there are too many figures of prime.

    Neither
    His waist/thighs look weird and his chest appears to be a little bit too large, though I love how clean his arms look.

    I too am in the camp of being disappointed by the aesthetic change to Earth vehicles.

    The new figures look really nice but I was hoping the Cybertronian alt modes would continue.

    I hear that!

    just expanded shelves to accommodate Siege this far.

    But no telling how the next lines will be, Titans Return was a large run then PoTP was much smaller.

    Impactor arrived on Sunday but since I was away on a trip I couldn't open him up until today, here's some comparison pics!

    Hasbro Impactors:

    Comparison with 3rd party MMC Spartan, I do like the deeper colors on the official version better:

    He does feel a bit short though in my Wreckers display :)

    Smokescreen is my favorite out of this mold. The promo shots don't do him justice. One of the best out of the Siege line.

    Well, I don't dislike him. He looks good, but he's just not something I have a big desire for. I do appreciate that he doesn't have the arm kibble and comes with a Matrix of Leadership. The shield looks pretty crappy though, not sure what they were thinking there. There are those that are putting Siege Prime down now that this is coming out, but to me, the Siege is a better figure.

    Just got home from work a bit ago and saw all the new renders for WFC: Earth Rise. Very excited! I’m ok with them going full-on Earth alt modes now because let’s be honest, most of Siege was already leaning that way in their Cybertronian design. Love the idea of Micromaster Base bots becoming a thing now, something I totally nailed in the Speculation thread. Also, just putting in my two cents to keep the thread all inclusive for the entire WFC trilogy. It would just seem to me to be less of a hassle to cross-post so much and show more interaction between the lines. I’d manage either way. BTW, Earth Rise.......interesting choice of name.....not the best........but interesting.

    I was studying the pics of the Earthrise figures a bit more, Optimus appears to have opening hands which will be nice for getting him to hold the Matrix. He looks like he will be the definitive CHUG G1 Optimus Prime.

    Those are 3rd Party Fansproject Warbot Recolier and Riftshot, their version of "Rack' N' Ruin" The one in front of Impactor is 3rd party Mech Ideas Gauntlet to represent Ironfist.

    Earth mode Prime looks pretty great but I don’t know if he seems different enough from the Siege Prime I already get plenty of enjoyment out of.

    I am thinking of dropping the rest of the Siege seekers and Megatron if earth versions are on the horizon. I don’t have a particular attachment to the Cybertronian modes their figures have.
