    point is dont care too much about the class size different in height i'd prefer then being closer in scale then say a mini con compared to a deluxe figure. which also brings up i feel the minicon cars in the line get screwed not being deluxe characters. wouldn't really buy any of them if it wasnt for the effect parts .

    Trying to figure out what makes Seige Optimus superior to Classics. Seige Megatron is definitely a huge 100% improvement over Classics Megs.

    Yeah he's good for 50 usd, but not 70 euros. Still waiting for price to drop to 50 euros.
    Is the name Dr Shocktopus i gave him a thing now? haha
    Even Emgo called him a octopus.
    MP Shockwave is trash.
    I can't believe his gun mode has his toes sticking out of the gun handle.
    Even G1 shockwave don't have this and have it cleaned up really nice.
    Robot mode is good, just not the gun mode.

    @Yaujta YES! You're profile pic is the new one. When did it change. I didn't even notice it until now. That's amazing.

    Shockwave is my absolute favorite Hands Down. The blast effects are from Robot Spirits 00 Gundam if anyone was wondering. 20190112_073015.jpg

    It changed Thursday. Siege Shockwave's head doesn't lift as much as the MP, which is why the arms are down more. Still, it works for me.

    I mean seriously though, Victory Leo splits in half, and his bottom half becomes Star Saber's shoes while his top half becomes backpack over-shoulder guns. If he's not in this line, I don't know if anyone should hold their breath for the future.

    Re: Chromia, the slightly improved feet but otherwise identical figure make me wonder why they bothered taking the combiner peg out. The original mold made a lot of sacrifices to be a limb, and this keeps the sacrifices but leaves out the combiner. I'm confused.

    The backpack looks better, though. If the peg were there the backpack/skirt wouldn't be able to fold up like this one does, giving it more of a jetpack appearance.

    I'd imagine they took out the combiner peg because she's smaller than the previous mold. The video compares her to thrilling 30's arcee (a different re-release of her anways) and they are close in height. Moonracer and Novastar are taller than that arcee, and subsequently siege Chromia. It isn't an extreme height difference but enough that it would hinder Chromia's capability to combine.

    Just get them ;)  I felt exactly the same way but this line really is amazing besides the alt mode aesthetics.

    I can think of a few things. Wrist swivels, Cleaner arms, ankle tilts, rotation at the thigh AND above the knee, chest opens, 5mm trailer hitch...
    And while Megatron is an improvement as well, I still like the aesthetic of classics megatron. The same could be said for classics OP, but even though he's half a shellformer you can't beat Nerf gun as the alt mode.

    Same. My only real problem with Generations is the backpack... if that problem's still there, I don't need a Chromia who's going to look exactly like what will eventually be four other figures.
