    I recall seeing this mentioned in one of the threads here, are there some issues caused by the effect/blast parts when when in contact for too long for the guns?

    Why are people down on Crosshairs? I mean, lack of targetmaster and beefy wheels aside, this is a great representation of the character.

    Plus, the Targetmaster is Trenchfoot, who was released in the Sideswipe G2 set

    Yeah, the shield idea is pretty bad. I realize they wouldn't be audio cassettes on Cybertron, but that's just really lazy.

    For my headcannon, I disregard the notion entirely. The "cassette" mode is simply a way to store and carry his minions when he doesn't need them.

    Thank you for posting Crosshairs. Now I am looking forward to him even more. Yes, he's ANOTHER recolor (though they did change the head sculpt at least) and I didn't even remember the character from G1, but he looks fantastic. The one thing I really wish they would have done differently is to give him a different weapon from Ironhide.

    You really missed a few: the weaponizers, the target masters, the micromasters, transparent Mirage, g2 sideswipe and megatron, the cell shades OP/Megs, Skythread/Slamdance, Soundblaster, Refractor, the rainmakers and Red Wing... then the female cars...and I'm probably missing some.

    reread what he wrote, MASS RETAIL, meaning non exclusive/mainline. the power dashers were generations selects (an offshoot online exclusive line) and amazon exclusive, transparent mirage was exclusive, g2 sideswipe and megatron were exclusive, 35th subline was exclusive, slamdance, soundblaster, refractor 3 pack, rainmakers were exclusive, red wing was selects, lancer was selects and greenlight was exclusive. you are complaining about non mainline, non regular retail releases being repaints and remolds?!?!?!?! those kinds of figures being repaints are the ones that work best as it doesn't clutter the mass retail/regular retail mainline with repaints. mainline siege was not cluttered with non legacy repaints, only the 3 that have already been mentioned

    dang.. them undies are a bit thight?

    He responded to my comments about the recolours and the why I stopped and didn't get all of the Siege figures

    imfallenangel said:

    My local ToyuRUs has a lot of them, but I just can't do it, they are just too pastel/neon/KO-colours coloured for me... I have the seeker trio, and that's enough of the mold for me, except if I could get a Red wing that looks much better.
    If they had done the colours darker and more details with separation with paint of different parts in black, like the main seekers are, I might have considered it.
    Like the other member stated, I'm one that am skipping it as I don't care about the character at all, not a fan of the colours either, but hate that it's just another recolour to the mold.
    Siege started so great and then was overtaken with the recolours (outside of the main ones that need to be such as the seekers and datsuns).
    But even then, they could have tried more even with them, heads a bit more different, different weapons, a few details different, more paint. At least they did it between Ironhide and Ratchet but still could have done a bit more.

    I NEVER make ANY distinctions between main line and the exclusives or such because some of the main crew are "exclusives" such as Skywarp, Smokescreen, as example and anyone that's getting most of the Siege lines will get those "exclusives" just as much as the others.


    And where do you draw the line? Walmart exclusives aren't "mass retail"(?) as that would mean that you need to consider the cell shades and other 35th figures, and then what about ToysRus? (which we still have in Canada) they are absolutely still "main retails".

    Almost all of targetmasters and micromasters recolours were almost all regular stock


    So not sure what you're attempting to prove here, but I will stick to what I said, that Siege did get a LOT of repaints, and I drew the line at one point. So not sure why it seems to have upset you that much.

    Just because you may not make distinctions doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be made, plus you said he missed some repaints when he specifically made the distinction (regardless of your lack of making the distinction)

    And again... I'll state: Walmart and Toys R us, and so on carried a lot of "exclusives" that ended up not being truly exclusives.
    And again I'll state: lots of the targetmasters and micromasters ended up being the same.

    How about you let that member answer for themselves.

    I’m sorry you find discussion to be such a bother, but the fact is that there were only 3 non legacy repaints in the mainline deluxe class and above, and if I’m not mistaken every legacy repaint in the mainline had at least minor tooling differences. You saying the line was overrun with repaints is a fairly false statement, especially considering none of the generations selects figures are technically siege, it is a separate line that is connected to whatever line is out at the time (there were 2 potp releases and 9 wfc trilogy releases, but they weren’t branded as siege)

    This isn't a "discussion".. you've got an agenda that isn't healthy and attacked my post as you reached with a very minor and very limited point, you simply extracted one detail and can't move past it.

    I'm not going to repeat myself again as you've taken a stance of needing to be right while playing a strawman argument yet again and stopping your foot.
