    So he's a triple changer but a kibbly mess in every mode? :D  Surprisingly, that Ape mode is growing on me slowly.

    I'm glad I ordered the 3pack :rolleyes:

    Q: Is Siege really all that much fun?
    A: Yes. For reals.

    I love GS Hot Shot but I feel that a 3P kit could really bridge the gap and make him feel more like CDF HS etc

    Saw these pics on instagram Screenshot_20191005-101519_Instagram.jpg FB_IMG_1570251435577.jpg

    I like how Mirage is just smiling at the camera.

    Ya I'm definitely not nearly as interested in him now as I was before. I don't have much of a connection to the character anyway so it might end up being a pass for me.

    We just started discussing it last night. I’m drawing up some sketches but it may be done in house. I’m going to design a g1 chest and a hybrid chest. What would you be interested in as a chest? They can also do arms. Here is the Elita set they made.

    Last Thursday was my big hunting day. I really wanted to find Wave 4 Mirage and Impactor, which I did, but it took me from morning to evening to find them after going to at least half a dozen different B&M stores in that timeframe. I did other stuff in between, but I just didn’t want anyone to think I was that much of a plastic crack addict. :confused2 

    But I digress. So I eventually found Mirage in the morning and Impactor in the evening. While these were the main two that I wanted, everywhere I went last Thursday had a freakin’ Barricade on the pegs. He mocked me everywhere I went because I knew it meant that I had missed his Wave mates. So come Friday, the wife and I are out at the store again and the angst of the hunt had subsided after capturing my prey. So when I still saw Barricade on the peg still mocking me, I decided to take a closer look at him. I caved almost immediately.

    I really, really, really did not want to get this bot. I kept telling myself I didn’t need him. I convinced myself of this with the Rainmakers, but when I took the time to actually give a moment’s notice to Barricade, I was done.

    I told myself, “You only need the Datsun Brothers, not this outlier from the Bayverse that snuck into the G1 canon thru Siege.” BUT JUST LOOK AT HIM........
    CC7083E4-1937-4A8B-8FDF-ABA528981255.jpeg
    HE’S EXQUISITE!!! This is the best looking bad cop robot I’ve ever seen. His semi-glossy black finish with the smoky grey stripe down the middle is sexy as hell. The new shoulder blasters really make his silhouette pop and helps him standout more from Prowl. The purple tinted windows are luscious and his lavender torso and limbs show the details beautifully. I don’t even care that he doesn’t have the black forearms and midsection from the renders. This bot is gorgeous!! And that headsculpt makes you wanna melt!
    He looks super sleek in his alt mode too!

    I love that the faction symbol is more centered on the hood, unlike Prowl. The black and purple just makes his curves pop even more. And with the shoulder guns placed on the hood,
    C4668132-1C8B-44B9-8343-589AC2193A19.jpeg
    it’s like something a rogue James Bond would drive. Speaking of those shoulder guns,
    DC067F75-800C-47FF-8BE4-A80CD5BEADFA.jpeg
    they work just as good wielded as wrist cannons. I feel these new blasters add so much more play value to this mold. It’s really a shame Prowl didn’t come with a set.

    If he weren’t a Decepticon, Barricade would be such a damn hero! But since he’s one of the bad guys, I’ll just call him a beautiful, showboating badass instead. This is one of the best redecos of any mold I’ve ever seen. At least on my copy, Barricade is actually tighter than my Prowl and even has detented door wings to flare back better. His headsculpt is a dream. The black, purple, and lavender color scheme is much more sexy and powerful than Prowl. As much as I like Prowl, next to Barricade, he really does feel like the dull one in character and deco. Bluestreak and Smokescreen have a lot to live up to.

    I have G2 Sideswipe available if anyone needs him. He has not been removed from the box. Cost, no increase.

    I am not the reviewer, I just found the review on youtube and shared it here because it is the only apeface review I could find, I agree with your points though!

    Just received Mirage from HasbroPulse today. I saw it at retail yesterday, but decided to wait for the ordered one. That wasn't easy.
    Man, this figure is pretty darn awesome! I love the transformation, and both modes are equally fun.
    Due to work I probably won't be able to take many pics this week, but I'm still having a lot of fun with it.

    my mistake, I meant classics. I can’t keep all the CHUG titles straight. But it’s still good to see it with CW Mirage, so thanks. Still undecided. I’m not concerned with screen accuracy, but Siege still looks very nice, aside from those personal niggles I have.

    you covered it with Classics Mirage, so thanks.

    The marvel head with red eyes is comic accurate (seems he would alternate between red and yellow depending on the issue), just like a prime with yellow eyes is marvel accurate. Not everything is sunbow referential, especially when it comes to a character that was never in sunbow ;)

    I know it’s pretty early since the 3-packs just started arriving today, but has anyone swapped the heads yet?

    Did anyone notice on the inside of the “half pegs” on Smokescreen/Barricade/Bluesteak they have molded bullets? I thought that was cool.

    I’m not gonna bother. I dont even know how to remove the heads since there’s no screw and it seems like the ball joint is pretty big. I’d worry breaking them and and if its that big of a deal I’d recommend using an Autobot sticker to make him an Autobot.

    Yeah they’re suppose to be magazines. Doesn’t make them as much of an eyesore but still an eyesore to me
