Starscream essentially hired (or rather, built) a bully to bully his bully.
Where does the deseus Drone fit?... Seige Ironhide remold... Kingdom (released) or earthrise (appeared in the Cartoon)???
Love this mold in black.
Netflixers typically go in whichever line their mold started with but in cases like Elita-1 (Arcee), Optimus Prime, and Wheeljack, I'd argue they can either go in Earthrise OR Kingdom (or both) since their mold was repacked in both sublines. The Siege Ironhide mold was never used for an Earthrise or Kingdom figure so I think of DAD as a Siege Bot. And for example, I put Gigawatt in here since he's technically a heavy heavy remold of Siege Sideswipe. But then Netflix Soundwave is a unique Earth-mode remold so we consider him Earthrise even though the other Soundwave voyagers were Siege bots.
I just scrolled up... Now I want a gigawatt. I have passed on him multiple times. The Hover Car looks too good
Why wouldn't Gigawatt go with Earthrise since it's an Earth mode retool like Netflix Soundwave
Anyone know where I can find a reasonable "Alternate Universe" Optimus Prime or a Nemesis? I was hoping to take him, combine him with some good gun parts, and make this:
On that note -> I just got Netflix DeepCover, but I already had Selects DeepCover
Kept away cause of the battle-damage, which frankly I don't care for
Anybody pics of removing Netflix DC's battle damage?
It looks like hell, but the blue chest/hood is grey plastic painted blue 1st layer, painted battle-damage 2nd layer
Wondering if it's a big struggle or super easy
Fu$&ing Fantastic Figure
The best siege figure hands down
I've read that it's not possible because both the battle damage and the blue are paint, so you can't remove one without removing the other.
Because I'm salty that they never made proper Earthrise Sideswipes until they did one for Kingdom--and that one STILL doesn't come with a [email protected]&#^$
Kingdom Sideswipe is perfection. It's too bad Hasbro shit the bed with Kingdom Mirage.
Man, I just don't see it that way. I have all the WFC Mirage releases and I feel like Kingdom Mirage is solid. I did buy the JRC Upgrade kit from @wheeljackfan16 to add 5mm shoulder ports, to be fair. What's wrong with it? I have the invisible version from the fan vote pack, the decepticon Netflix version, the Siege version, and the Kingdom version. I feel like I like all of them.
The biggest problem with my Kingdom Mirage is that there's some warping where the head connects to the body so the rotating platform falls out somewhat easy
Hasbro could definitely benefit from producing a dozen copies of a given figure and letting some collectors play with them for a while to identify engineering issues before going into mass production, eh?
