    So since I got Thundercracker, had to bring his Seeker buddies out for a stretch. This and my next post should end my Seeker streak for a bit, but it was just too much fun to finally have all 3. Here’s some Skywarp coolness.

    I’m really proud of the fact that I got each of these guys to balance on one leg, being that they’re kinda back heavy. Speaks volumes of the levels of articulation in these figures and to the Siege line in general. If you tilt your head a certain way, it almost looks like they’re hovering while looking like badasses at the same time.

    That also explains why my store pickup order was delayed until the 31st.

    Seige Mirage’s altmode is growing on me, I’m eager to see whatToyhax comes up with for it.

    Not really sure if it counts as Siege, but thanks to local help, I was able to pick up Bluestreak and Soundblaster today.

    Given how little interest I had in Prowl, and how generally in my collection I break up heavy mold re-usage (Ratchet and Ironhide are different molds in my Neo-classic collection, same with the 3 seekers), here I am with some Praxians.

    Loving the little guys!

    Always happy to find something that will ship to South Africa on Amazon (especially if it shouldn't be there but there is no other way to get it, stupid store exclusives. Yes I'm looking at you, Ratchet, Bluestreak and Smokescreen...)

    Kinda wish I picked up a KO Star Saber now.

    Exclusives have totally murdered the whole hobby for me. There's way too many!

    It would be okay if they weren't characters I absolutely needed, then I could just ignore their existence... Like the Powerdashers (really, no offense guys who love 'em)

    Had some quality time with Omega Supreme. And kinda everybody, really.
    He's just too big for the ol' lightbox, so the lighting might be even more out of control than my usual pictures.

    I can't even keep track of them all. Then there's the problem of not really wanting it right now but it will be unaffordable in a couple years. So I end up buying shit I don't really need just to avoid getting screwed by the A-hole ebay sellers in the future. I might want it in the future or I might not, I have no idea. It would be so much better if they were all wide releases to keep the scalper prices at bay.

    Ratchet is the only one that was giving me trouble to find as i live in the UK, (And the UK is always great with its distribution) so its a bit annoying, but i have found a couple listings so i will hopefully have one in two weeks
    But damn he looks great

    Red Wing in da house! My first Siege Voyager. The most solid figure on whole my collection! Very impressive but I heard that Starscream and TC doesn't that solid some places. Especially the chest part. it's only one thing that stops me from start collecting all the seekers.

    Noticed that he is remind me of Armada Starscream, am I not the only one?

    I have all seven seekers and Starscream is the only one with the chest plate issues. And as long as you're careful when transforming him, that issue won't be anything more than a minor annoyance. You won't break anything, you'll just get frustrated, lol. I wouldn't let that stand in the way of getting more seekers if you really want them.

    Also I've heard that there was a legitimate running change to the Starscreams that solved the chest issues but I can't confirm that.

    I happened to hold both Starscream and Thundercracker in my hands and both were very loose. Maybe the owner was unlucky with QC. Seekers are very neat but I don't want to start collecting others before I found Skywarp or rainmakers for good price.

    This might be why my local Walmart looks half picked over with no new stuff. Was just there yesterday.
