    I can forgive:
    Painting
    Kibble
    Hollowness
    Partsforming
    Those kind of things
    But i hardly forgive anything that limits poseability

    Yellow visor, red visor. Just buy some acrylic paint and make it the color you want.

    but your shutting Starscream down even though he has more pose-ability than all POTP. I bet you haven't noticed the butterfly shoulders that will enable him to aim his nullrays forward while orienting on top of his shoulder. He's got waist swivel and ankle tilt. Probably the best arm articulation, with the exception of MP. Your shredding the figure for SLIGHTLY limited rear thigh rotation... show me a pose that will prevent you from making. Another guy on here complaining that the eyes are yellow. And cursing about it, like it ruins the whole figure...who the fuck cares if the eyes are yellow or red, HASBRO has always made them yellow! so much bitching.

    1:Hey hey, im not shutting him down, im just commenting on what i see, also, my concerns are on waist swivel and backwards hip movement which seem to be limited thanks to the kibble on his butt, his thigh swivels have no problem
    2:I totally agree when you say it's a huge improvement on that abomination from POTP, no stickers, proportions are way better, there is wrist swivel, ankle tilt and double jointed elbows and knees
    3: Do you have any pics of the butterfly joint ?
    4:Im still going to buy the figure when it comes out in my country

    Soundwave looks great, I was drooling over Starscream until they showed the back with all that awful battle damage. It makes a great toy look bad.

    Where did you get such a cute little Ravage? :) 

    @Vector Oracle I remember that song from tiny toons, i always thought it was weird. Pops up in my head every now and again.

    @primalxconvoy A smashed up tellytubby. :lol 

    @Purple Heart Starscream was too busy complaining to Thundercracker about how Everybody Wants to Rule the World, to notice they were flying under a Flock of Seagulls. :D

    I hate the weathering as much as the next bot. Luckily my mrs. will strip them down and black wash them herself.

    After cleaning most of the gunk off of Prime and Megs, I'm really nervous about the gold trim around the cassette door. It's bad enough I badly damaged (no pun intended) Prime's autobrand in the process. I don't want to mess up what good Hasbro HAS done on these figs.

    You're complaining about people complaining. People complain about you shilling for Hasbro but that hasn't stopped you from posting how much you love the SIEGE line. Let them do their thing, you do yours, vote with your wallet and if someone doesn't like what you like and vice versa, that's perfectly fine.

    Ultimately Hasbro has shown that they are receptive to constructive criticism and implement improvements over time. That doesn't come from constant praise and this SIEGE line that you thoroughly enjoy ironically would not be anywhere near as enjoyable if fans hadn't spoken up in years past and voiced their concerns. The budget limitations cut hard in 2011 and it took a LONG time to get where we are now, where SIEGE is nothing like some of the post-2011 lines like Prime RID.

    Unless you had some part in directly designing the toy, I don't see why you have to take people's complaints about the toy personally.

    35th anniversary toys showed it for Soundblaster. So it might be more than a fan mode thing.

    Constructive criticism. A lot of fan whining is anything but.

    Minor fixes are one thing, but the lines progressing as they progress is more about business than it is about stroking fan ego. So while fan input in positive ways is great, a lot of the negative types do end up falling on deaf ears as not worth bothering to listen to.

    Gotta filter out the ignorance and spoiled fruit, or Hasbro would have belly flopped into bankruptcy over a decade ago. Instead, now they are basically the nintendo of toy companies. With the "printing money" memes.

    I’m still hoping to get a better tape deck mode here.
    i think rotating the leg will help, but I noticed something else...

    The thigh on the right side of the pic looks like it is pulled out slightly.
    I’m wondering if the legs can be pulled out to make a little room for the arms.

    My only issue on SS is the wings. They could've made both sides of the wings (two pcs of plastic halves) clean like the Classics.
    Seeing that exposed underside wings painted red stripe and slapped with Decepticon logo seems a lazy ass work.
    His body being an underside junk is inevitable. I guess a clean tetrajet mode is still far to achieve.

    For SW, he looks like raped multiple times by the autobots or had a misunderstanding w/his cassette minions seeing the battle damage on his chest.
