    AHAHAHAHA, YES! The almighty Xenu smiles upon me, I DID snag myself a Ratchet! He'll be getting a new MTMTE stylez head and a few licks of paint soon, can't decide what colour to do his hands though, I know they weren't blue for very long after he stole Pharma's but the Delphi two-parter is one of my favourite Transformers stories.

    I grabbed the Countdown base set for 0,01$ but I'm not sure if I want to spend 35$ more on Omega Supreme :D 
    Would probably dig some labels for Apeface tho

    Meh, I'd have preferred G1-esque stickers. The clear ones with arrows, warnings and the like. These are, as is their style now, too busy.
    They also look like stickers, and thus look out of place.

    “Dammit! Someone already beat me to creating my own review thread. Oh well, guess I’ll just settle for the Appreciation thread. At least those guys are.....ya know..... appreciative.”

    Siege Spinister is a total surprise! I was so happy when they announced this figure. I had the G1 toy as a kid and it was one of my absolute favorites. Siege Spinister will happily remedy the missing void that is my old G1 figure.
    130620E5-CAB8-4CFA-BF18-322969254AA1.jpeg
    It’s the colors that grab you right off. They match well with his G1 counterpart. Who would’ve thought that teal and purple would be a good color scheme for an Apache attack helicopter? Speaking of which.......
    1C460F55-162A-4948-8054-1662759DA86C.jpeg
    .......it’s a Decepticon, so the colors are perfect. And this Apache design is just gorgeous.

    The detailing on the cockpit is excellent. I like how the windows have that ever so slightly cloudy effect to them. Probably a POA to see out of, but at least it looks good. Also, Spinister is very stable in this mode. I was concerned with the way the faux cockpit folds up under him (which is genius by the way) that the helo would not sit properly. Thanks to the landing gear and his guns, it balances everything and holds a landing position very well.

    The faux cockpit honestly I feel is barely noticeable in this mode. It’s not as obtrusive as Mirage’s faux chest. From certain angles in the back you can see it, but it doesn’t get in the way of anything and feels really good in hand.

    I really like his weapons. They are a nice callback to his G1 Targetmasters, Singe and Hairsplitter. I know we got the Battlemaster updated of those figures in this line, but I don’t have Singe yet. I do have the not-Shrute that came with Skywarp. But the ones he came with will do just fine for now. I love how they look as wrist-mounted blasters.

    Poseability on this bot is insane. I think Spinister is the Deluxe equivalent to Siege Voyager Starscream, or any of the Seekers for that matter. His frame is well engineered and just the right amount of lanky to be nimble and agile.

    DBDA7280-989C-4445-8CBC-D14100451D67.jpeg
    See what I mean?!
    DBC9E5BB-5DC5-4B6A-B928-DF238634778D.jpeg
    Spinister cleans up very nicely too and has a killer silhouette and profile. I can’t even begin to describe how smartly this figure is engineered, but everything folds up magically into his torso. I love his headsculpt too. Even from this angle, those eyes and faceplate make Spinister look sinister.
    E78672E0-A1EE-49C8-BDA7-4E7342254BD0.jpeg
    Siege Spinister I think is definitely a contender for best Deluxe figure, if not the best of all size classes in this line. Wheeljack vs. Spinister is the pairing I voted for. I’m glad for Mirage and Impactor, but I am overjoyed to have gotten Spinister and look eagerly forward to Wheeljack. G1 Spinister was one of my favorite toys, not just in the Transformers line, growing up. One of the best helicopter bots, awesome Decepticon colors, excellent robot design, killer headsculpt and silhouette, mind-blowing transformation, dynamic poseability for days, cool accessories. Siege Spinister is the whole package.

    Oh wow that’s great. The proportions remind me of WFC Omega Supreme (er, the other WFC Omega Supreme).

    That Toyhax set looks cool. Overly busy? Yeah, but I think it’s a lotta fun decking out every little detail on Titan figures even if it is a bit of an eyesore.

    Was tired of Jetfire's eyes being so dull, an too lazy to go buy a lighter blue paint. So I did something... unorthodox.

    I feel this fits his Marvel origins better.

    Can't wait to finish Siege, im so close to having everyone I want. I just need:
    The "Not in the face!" 2-pack,
    "What if God was one of us?",
    "Insane in the spacetrain",
    And "The sinister spinster."

    I hear that. Not perfect what I've done here, but definitely scratches an itch.

    City of Fear was a huge deal to me!
    My parents brought that comic back for Me from a trip to Ireland right about the time it was published "Transformers and Action Force (GI Joe)"
    It was my first taste of Marvel UK.
    I was amazed at the different art style than the American Marvel comics at the time, and loved that they had Flywheels in it! (A fav toy a friend gave me for my 7th birthday).
    Also, Ultra Magnus, and the Sparkbots! (I had guzzle too).
    And the horror of City of Fear!!! The zombies! It legitimately scared 7 yr old me!
    The worst part is, I never knew how the story arc ended, since it was just the one issue, and ends with all the zombie bots ganking our heroes!
    It wasn't til I was older and they released the trade in the States that I finally saw how it ended. (What a relief, finally!)
    Cool pic! Thanks for sparking the memories!!!
    (I think... I may have my old City of Fear nightmares tonight now. Haha)

    That's what it is! I thought something about it looked familiar but couldn't put my finger on it.

    and that he can’t deal with a lot of things right now.

    All we know is, he’s not the stig, but the stig’s cybertronian cousin.
