    Great head sculpt, great mold, great deco, great paint...terrible attitude. All of the elements that go into making a great Decepticon.

    Fair warning for anyone who might be planning on getting the Ironhide gap filler kits to use on a Ratchet - they don’t line up quite exactly. The back piece seemed to really push down on the waist connector, which actually tightened up a loose waist on my copy. However, the forearm pieces snapped because the didn’t fit right. There are just enough differences in the molds.

    Some it's because of the colour, others it's just because he's not an actual G1 and they're happy to see this character being represented in Siege.

    Personally, I do like the colours to a point, but it just doesn't fit at all with the others, so I'm skipping it, plus I just hate that it's just a recolor. If it would have been a reworked remold that would be different I might have considered it, but as just another Datsun, it just appeal to me. Heck, not even different weapons.

    Technically it is different weapons. If you ignore exclusives and look at just main releases, barricade is a repaint of prowl with a new head sculpt and different weapon. Prowl didn't come with the shoulder guns and barricade doesn't come with the hand gun.

    Smokescreen and bluestreak are probably not even gonna be involved with the fiction of the toyline.

    I ordered this set too and still waiting for it to come in. There's another filler set for ratchet, which I also purchased and received. I installed most of this other set and everything fits nicely, except the bicep pieces. I was gonna basically mash the sets together, use the best parts of both and give ironhide the ratchet studios foot filler parts since his didn't come with it. I'm gonna paint them black to mimic rear windows too.

    $12.99 usd each. And they only affect transformations if you use the ratchet studios leg extensions, other wise nothing is affected

    I thought at the start of Siege, that part of the point of the subline was Cybertronian modes. That was shakey from the start but we at least got a form of tetrajet and Soundwave can sorta-kinda turn into a streetlight. With the line all but wrapped up, I have to see it as a failure because we didn't get Wheeljack or Bumblebee in their Cybertronian modes! From what I can remember, they were the only two G1 Autobots that had their Cybertronian modes featured yet they are going to be made in Earthrise, as cars!

    From Kapow this morning:

    Please pay by the due date which is the instock / shipping date of this product. Please note we have imported this product at a higher cost to ourselves due to Hasbro UK once again dropping the ball on release in time for Xmas therefore the payment date is shorter than usual. We are losing money on the product as we value your custom and happiness :)  Any questions please email us via the homepage contact us tab. Many thanks and Merry Xmas.

    This was my Crosshairs order and I appreciate it... and if I'd known I wouldn't have cancelled Spinister who presumably fell under the same conditions. I paid ID extra for the privilege too... Hasbro UK are creating resentment all round, frankly, but I don't know if they're at the mercy of wider decisions. I happen to know that other retailers like Forbidden Planet and Star Action Figures have complained bitterly for months in the past around lines like Marvel Legends, Star Wars and Transformers.

    They can't plan ahead, wind up dealing with angry customers creating and cancelling orders etc which has all sorts of impact on their trading. One big issue is it leaves them with stock they haven't shifted as another shipment arrives in a random timeframe. And they have to handle it because they can hardly tell customers they haven't got the latest figures.

    It's especially bad with Marvel Legends because so many peg warm and they can't really drop the price, because that should affect the whole wave in the customer's mind.

    Jazz too and yeah it's crazy that the Tetrajet is the only Cybertronian alt mode we definitely saw in the cartoon which got a toy and BB, Wheeljack and Jazz are just... absent. Though I do wonder if Part 3 will pull a PotP and have a mixture of elements from the previous two lines so Cybertronian and Earth alt mode bots about.
