    As much as I wish Megatron was as good as Prime, I do really appreciate how playable and customizable the mold is, perhaps even more so than Prime. I still wish he had a darker grey plastic and arms that were articulated like Prime's though. On a side note, the fandom's reception to Siege feels very similar to how we responded to the best of the Unicron Trilogy stuff back in the day. We've got a mixture of the Energon gimmicks (Weaponizers=Omnibots/Terrorcons), the leader figures are like the Ultra Class Powerlinx figures (E Landmine and E Bulkhead), and then we also have Armada's Minicon gimmick, but without the annoying springs in the Battle Masters and Micromasters. Here's hoping the next line pulls a Cybertron and improves and refines these gimmicks, I'm really very impressed so far.

    This has to be why the shoulder armor looked like handles

    Yeah I'm sick of this...I've seen a swift decline of the ML presence at retail (not that there's been much in the last few years anyway), and I'm sure it's because of this crap...now TF's are gonna suffer.

    They're thieves.

    Went to Wal-mart yesterday and picked up Sideswipe and a second Cog. I must say that Sideswipe is probably the most robust figure I’ve ever bought. 425C5251-CC18-451C-8D28-3D0014259F5E.jpeg

    Optimus Prime is one helluva impressive piece, the engineering crammed into it is mind-blowing between things like swapping out the usual waist spin for just swiveling the calves and the unnecessary but appreciated panels to cover the backs of the legs. However, Megatron is definitely a guilty pleasure: big and chunky, simple conversion, and doesn't bother with frills (it's a grey Megatron that isn't trying to be silver). I mean, sure, having both does heighten the experience, but between happily fiddling with a semi truck and then just mashing and roughing around a tank, it's been a blast.

    Siege continues to both appease and perplex me.

    Bought Hound yesterday out of frustration from not being able to find Shockwave or the jet Battlemasters, did my usual thing of disassembling him so I could give him an isopropyl alcohol bath (broke the pegs the grill was mounted on trying to get it off since it's glued on, thought maybe I could use rods and gorilla glue to resecure it), I've had the chest-grill and both legs soaking for over a day now, the left leg is clean but the "battle damage" paint refuses to come off the rest, whereas the actual detail paint is long gone. So strange.
