    But strangely enough...

    There is just enough of a gap in shockwave's legs to fit the shuttle mode tail fin.
    Also looks more harlock this way

    That would be Spinister, I think.

    Thanks! Looked up Cybertron Smokescreen... and yeah, he was indeed intended to be more of a homage to G1 Actionmaster Rad! :) 

    I just went through my bins hoping to find him... Rolled, no dice.

    Found his mold mates, Jolt and Crosswire though. Siege Lionizer looks pretty sweet with Crosswire, so I guess I do need that Cybertron Smokescreen Rad to hold me over until we get a Generations Selects Rad?! :p

    Well, Siege has been an incredible line and, as it's the end of the year, I have decided to compare what I've bought to a list of the entire line and make a final list of what all I need and what I might like if I can afford it. Gotta hurry up and finish because Earthrise is a comin....

    Anyone looking for last minute gift ideas for me, take note! ;P
    Here's what I still need...I don't have everything that's not on this list, but I have everything I want that's not on this list:

    The guys I missed because I was still on the fence about whether I wanted them when they were in stock:
    Cog...probably a few of them.
    Flak and Topshot...a few of them would be nice as well.

    The newer guys that I haven't had a chance to find yet:
    (assuming Smashdown and Caliburst ever manage to find their way out of China...)
    Astrotrain
    Rung
    maybe Singe
    Ratbat and Frenzy
    Barricade
    Impactor
    Spinister
    Apeface

    The exclusives that I have yet to find the balance between need/want and just don't have the extra money for:
    Rainmakers
    Fan vote pack
    Cromar
    Zetar**
    Nightbird
    maybe Redwing

    Nemesis Prime looks neat but I'm still pissed I had to pay almost $40 for a Voyager plus extra junk in Shockwave and $50 for a Voyager with slightly better extra junk in Skywarp...no way I am paying $60 for a Voyager with no extra junk.

    Other:
    maybe another Sixgun or 2 but only if I manage to get most or all of the other things on my list
    maybe a Crosshairs or 2
    Not Siege, but I really need to get started on my Wreck-Gar/Junkion collection.

    And, as always:
    THE BURT
    THE BURT
    THE BURT
    AND MOAR THE BURT!!!!!!

    So, I finally completed the Powerdashers.

    Not gonna lie. As much as I love these guys getting new toys, and these are very clever remolds of the Weaponizers, it's still just a little... weird, you know? Not bad, but just weird.

    Now you can try their combined gestalt mode! :eek: 

    (This isn't mine, and I don't remember where I got this, but I saved the picture because I wanted to give it a try one of these days eventually :p  ).

    "Backed into a corner, well boys looks like this might be it. Let's make the end big!"
    "Let it be known, I'm proud to have fought side by side with a warrior like you Springer"
    "Spinister! Can we focus on getting out of here alive before getting all buddy buddy with the autobots please!"

    Already had Screamer, just grabbed Spinister and Springer yesterday. Some really fun figures, I love the articulation on these guys, and Spinister has such a clever transformation. I'm not all in on the siege/earthrise figures, I can't afford it lmao. I'm only grabbing the ones with superb articulation cuz that's one of my favorite features in a figure. Knees, hips, elbows all pass 90°, ankles pivot front/back and side/side etc. Considering I'm just looking for top notch articulation like on these 3 guys, any suggestions on which figures in this line I should jump on next?
