For the looks. Yet.
But for the asking price, what will be the quality? How will it feel in hand? Will it have annoying detachable parts like MP-10's fingers? Will it feel "soft" and "hollow"? Will it feel damn premium at any times in hand like MP-01?

I'm seriously looking forward the video reviews to find out.

Comparing Poseability Between Siege Optimus Prime and MP-44 Optimus Prime

Postby william-james88 » Thu Dec 13, 2018 9:48 am

Do you want a beautiful G1 Optimus Prime to receate iconic poses? But you can't afford MP-44? Well, some fans have been having fun using Transformers WFC Siege Optimus Prime and recreating all the poses used in the Masterpiece MP-44 Optimus Prime Ver 3 listings. Below you can see an image that recreates the famous movie pose among others that served to show poses MP-44 could do. While tongue in cheek, this does show that the latest Siege Optimus Prime toy is very poseable and has great articulation. Of course these are different scales, but it comes to show that some of the fun MP-44 may bring can be had right now with a much cheaper toy. And in the end, isn't fun what toys are all about? These were posted by TF Fan Xavier on Facebook and by Skyfire Prime on our boards.

Enjoy!

The opinions expressed in this post are well-reasoned and insightful.
Needless to say, they are not those of SEIBERTRON.COM, its staff members, or any other site lackeys.
Anyone who says otherwise is itching for a fight.

Yeeeeeah I don’t mean to be rude but why is this even a headline piece? It’s apples and oranges and relevant to nothing.

I really really like siege prime.. they added lots of little things to the toy that weren’t necessary but make him better... e.g they didn’t need a waist swivel but they added it in there...
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

If this is trying to say the siege optimus can pull of the same poses as mp-44 well....

Im gonna sound rude here but this comparison sucks.
The poses siege optimus is trying to replicate look forced. And the photos are taken at the wrong angle/ figure cant pull of the pose like mp-44.

It would be fair to do the comparison once mp-44 is released also, so you can have full control of taking the shots at the same angle.

I would have liked a comparison between SIEGE and PotP Optimus.
As far as I can see SIEGE OP lacks PotP OP's foot for- and backwards pivot.
But therefore he has wrist swivels and waist rotation.
Is that all? :???:

I'm a bit confused, the shots are taken at the same angle, the siege photographer has done his best to capture the same angles as those who work at Takara promotional department (they would be the ones taking the photos I assume). End of the day this was all in good fun, and is meant to be taken with light heartedness. After all there is a good couple hundred quid in price difference. If Siege Optimus was capable of doing more then there would be an uproar at why mp-44 cost so much.

Basically, we expect mp-44 to be better then Siege op for the price. As for me, I'm quite happy with Siege prime...when I see him, otherwise I may just wait and see what price amazon UK charge.

The following is an unpaid endorsement of the needing of this comparison.

I for one enjoyed it as a tongue-in-cheek “news flash” to highlight to awesome Optimus Prime toys.
