Got spinister in today so he’s chilling with quake
Finally done with my Apeface repaint! He still needs a Matt spray to seal him up and no way am I doing alt modes until after that.
Ok that figure I want!
Got Siege Spinister and Crosshairs in today from Amazon, very happy with them!
Compared with Botcon 2012 (with Charticon 2013 exclusive Baleful head) and TFCC Spinister, the Siege version is the best!
With TFCC Needlenose and Titans Return Quake (custom Targetmasters), Spinister is holding the TFCC Targetmasters to match his buddies.
Siege Crosshairs will be replacing this custom version I made, a repainted FOC Swindle
With my customs of the other two Autobot Targetmasters (they're wielding 3rd party Mastershooter guns) and with Crosshairs holding Siege Trenchfoot, I'm looking forward to seeing new official versions of Pointblank and Sureshot!
Just scored Shockwave for $3! Can't wait to crack him open!
I too find Earthrise Prime to be less appealing than the above two figures. I agree with you that Prime's waist design is odd looking. What I do not fully understand is why I think the same design works so well on the Siege seekers, Springer, and Spinister.
spent the last few days trying to strip the battle damage paint off Apeface, isopropyl alcohol isn't doing any good. Tried to sand it off, all the paint in the grooves can't come off, have to paint over it.
Voyagers in the Siege line seem to get the stubborn paint that refuses to come off. Hope Astrotrain won't cause as much trouble if I can find one.
I’m lined up at a toy sale right now! They’ve got some good priced Siege delights, and I’m gonna elbow my way straight to the Jetfires!

I like those side by side shots. I really appreciate the differences in the two - some of which are subtle, I grant you - but still, it was nice that they did that rather than just making Ratchet a straight repaint with different accessories and a head-crest.

Wasn't that the first Mission Impossible movie?
Finally got the last Datsun bro!
After thinking for a while, I figure out the reason the waist is kinda odd-looking are probably because of the middle crotch part (highlighted in green circle) of the waist sticks far out from the hip joint instead of being more parallel with the hips; creating some pretty weird proportioned look at the waist. It's a bit of a bizarre design choice as well, at least for me.
Spinister and Springer are Amazing. Spinister can hit poses no other bot can with his extreme ankle articulation. Good stuff.
Picked up classics Bee for the Wife.
Have been playing round with my Apeface finally, for someone who wanted him for ape mode I have to say I find him rather average. Bot mode is cool enough but yea, not impressed with monkey mode. Maybe I'm transforming him wrong (I know thats a common thing) but things just don't click together nice and easily like I like, and even when you do get it right I still think he just looks pretty meh. Tack on the insane amount of battle damage (which I hate so much in this series to begin with) and I'm just not feeling it.
Such a shame, I was looking forward to him a lot. I really hope Snapdragon (my fav one) is more impressive.
Again, if I wanted to display him in robot mode I wouldn't mind too much, thats actually pretty cool, but I wanted him in animal mode to go with my other Decepticon Headmasters.
