    This Starscream tells me to forget that PotP Starscream ever happened , while Siege Thundercracker high-fives future Siege Skywarp.  

    Soundwaves cracked chest looks great and makes sense. Hes been through alot.  I wish Hasbro went as far as Gundam did with the battle damage.
    Missing limbs , shredded torsos with bullet holes, darker paint from all the leaking energon, wires ,missing eyes , missing half faces....

    Same. His Colonial Viper alt-mode honestly kills the hype I had for the figure.

    Ewww, Hasblo still haven\'t learnt not to cover such great sculpts in sh#tty silver paint.  Soundwave looks like a smashed-up Telly-Tubby, and Screamer looks like he\'s been jumping in a dirty puddle.

    Oh well, more pre-orders to cancel.

    Maybe the Soundblaster and Thundercracker repaints will be better?

    This seek mold looks great!

    What I really appreciate about Siege is that the designers have made the effort to incorporate real alt mode parts to recreate the iconic features on some of these 'bot modes that were carried over from their earth alt modes. Like Starscream's jet nose now forms the "intakes" and Mirage's spoiler becomes the arm kibble that used to be the sides of the F-1 racer.

    Soundwave reminds me of his MP self but shrunken down. He will be mine.

    I initially felt that Starscream was a bit off when he was first revealed, but these new pics do make him look better. If we get a Seige Skywarp to go along with him and Thundercracker then I’m picking him up for sure along with the other Seekers.

    I like the look of the Soundwave but I wish his alt mode was better

    Soundwave looks decent. I'd like to see some comparison photos next to Megatron - or the Music Label Soundwave toy

    Starscream looks... dependent on the angle. That one kinda screams "final opinion in-hand" as some photos look great, while others look nasty. Kinda too bad this is built on an extra-chunky version of the tetra-jet design.

    Strangely, some of the photos of Thundercracker from Toy fair looks like he might have a smirky face, while Starscream looks grim. If true, I wonder if a mix-up happened somewhere. Should be an easy enough swap if you prefer a smirking Starscream.

    Thundercracker does indeed have a re-sculpted face to have a Smirk, the Brand team also brought it up during the toy fair panel Supposedly. His render also shows the Smirk.

    If you Zoom in on SoundBlaster and look at both the Mock up Figure and the render cutout in the box he still sadly has the battle damaged chest. He has a Red visor and chest window though at least.

    I was thinking the same thing. Soundwave, Shockwave and Optimus specifically seem to take alot of cues from their MPs
