    Barricade needs more purple, just a little splash on the chest/hood.

    If it's one or the other, I'd much rather they keep the same guns and give them both unique wings. I can't stand Dirge with Ramjet's wings and I'd have to pass on him if that ends up happening again. Usually I wouldn't mind some slight deviation from the source but Dirge was my first G1 toy lol.

    I need a second pair of eyes (I'm wearing glasses btw). Siege Smokescreen's mid torso and lower groin. In my version, the former looks to have some gunmetal gray painted on it while his lower groin is unpainted. I just need a confirmation please? Thanks in advance.

    Not really a normal retail release if it's exclusive...

    I like it too. While the Spartan head is cool, it just does not fit the design style of the overall figure. It's too smooth and rounded and looks out of place. The Autobot version better fits the blocky G1 aesthetic with a bunch of molded detail. If they had also remolded the rest of Decepticon version to have more smooth surfaces it would look like the head actually fit the body.

    Uhm... That's the answer as to why there's no normal retail release...

    Albeit, exclusive only in the US.

    Would love to hear the story that goes with "the Autobots wanted to recruit an oppressed miner with good intentions who was seduced by Decepticon class rhetoric, and, in Optimus Prime's infinite wisdom, decided the best guy to get him to change sides was the old money snob."

    he’s been an exclusive a lot. It’s just what they’ve decided to do with him. Probably because they don’t want to plug the shelf up with one mold. I went to a target tonight and I saw 5 starscreams and 4 Thundercrackers and 1 megatron. That’s something they kinda don’t want to do. For fans they know the difference but for kids and even parents they think it’s the same toy. That’s why retools don’t share waves with eachother. That’s why in combiner wars the Arialbots and stunticons got split in the first two waves. Because there were molds that were the same on the teams.

    and it’s not like skyward is hard to get. He’s still instock on amazon.

    I'm with you. In fact, I don't care for the helmet on the 3-pack version at all. Doesn't fit well with the overall design.

    Agreed. Transformers has generally been pretty well balanced between the two sides in terms of coolness.

    I really want Aragon to complete me collection, but $70 for three deluxes is a bitter pill. I don't want hologram Mirage that badly and Decepticon Impactor is of no interest at all, especially considering I've order the regular one. I guess I'll keep my eyes open for an Aragon on eBay that's not too horribly priced.

    Might be easier/cost efficient to buy the 3-pack and sell off IDW Impactor and blue Mirage?

    After you get all three in hand, you'll probably just end up keeping them all... :p

    Rumble looks like a great figure, looking forward to Frenzy, Rewind, Eject and whatever 3P wants to come up with besides the Wu drones we've already seen. 20191016_192838.jpg 20191016_192738.jpg

    I hope there's even a TINY chance this gets a reissue because I became interested in it way too late and even ebay doesn't have any.

    Impactor practically came out of the box like this. The weaponizer concept really comes together well. Hasbro should keep pushing the concept further.
