Takara's first batch of SIEGE figures will be out next week! (These toys are probably old news to most posters here. :lol: )

As expected, Impactor looks better in actual photos than he did in the render. The head looks a lot better and his orange looks less yellow, which were basically my only complaints. Interesting that the copy of him they displayed appears to be missing both his shoulder cannon and the paint apps on his tank treads/plow. #-o

On a similar note with Prime, his arms are painted blue on the figure displayed in robot mode, but aren't on the vehicle mode one, and the copy of him in vehicle mode is missing his shoulder armor. Those seems like weird oversights, what color will his arms actually be? Red would match G1 Prime, which they seem to want to make this figure still function as, and the sample from the video review had red arms, but blue would match with Cybertron/Galaxy Force Prime...also they painted the middle segment of his light bar, yay!

No sign of Mirage, interestingly enough.

Red Alert definitely does NOT have the same gun as Prowl, there's no mistaking it now, the gun is a slightly different shape and the ports for the light bar are in different spots.

I'm going to wait until the end of the weekend at least to write a post analyzing the figure numbering like I keep doing, just in case more reveals of any kind happen, but I will say that where we're at right now we're still definitely missing figures, that much is certain (and I'm not talking about ones we know are coming like Barricade, Skywarp, and apparently now Astrotrain).

The first 4 figures will be:

Voyager SoundBlaster remold Of Siege Soundwave
Voyager Cell shaded Optimus prime
Voyager Cell shaded Megatron

...well this might explain some of those missing figures though, did no one else notice this? I wish that Soundblaster wasn't standing in the way, I want to see what Bluestreak looks like..

Watching the video, I kind of got the impression that they didn't really want to apply the war-paint to Skyfire because he turned out so nice and accurate to the cartoon; but didn't want him to seem out of place either, so they settled for that subtle yellow wash.

passing on all the carbots & soundblaster seems an oddity but it might mean they will do more figures that werent on Cybertron (Dinobots, scourge, cyclonus) prior to leaving for Earh or even a skylynx (not they will give him a cybertronian form, maybe windows above windows :P)

The main course. Let's tuck in.

Titan Class: Omega Supreme
Love it. I'm in awe of the telescoping rocket sections. That sucker easily clears 3 feet. My only worry is someone will stuff model rocket engines and see how high it can go.

Commander Class: Skyfire
Love it. I especially the spring loaded trap doors. I'm guessing this will be a holiday release. I'll see you in the fall Skyfire. It gives me a few months to clear a space for it.

Triple Changer: Springer
Like it. It's no knock on the design team, but I've been collecting since the Thrilling 30 five years ago. I'll skew toward ones I don't have first and I already have a Springer. The same goes for Galaxy OP. It looks sweet, but I'd have a couple dozen Primes if I picked up everyone.

Decepticons:
I'd say 'where are the Decepticons?' but last year they split the reveals with the Autobots in the first half and the Decepticons much later. I can be patient here.

Blast Effects: Please Hasbro bundle up the blast effects and sell that as a pack. Those things are easy to loose.

Why wait?

Amazon guarantees the lowest price.

If the price drops when its released, Amazon charges the lower price, or refunds the difference in my experience.

Yeah, thats not what I meant. After release, either in a few weeks, or a couple of months, the prices on these large items always drop.

I have to say T30 springer is the figure that got me into TF collecting (Thanks to Thew) and I still consider it the penacle of tf design. This has nothing on it.

I'm not usually one to throw shade, but the G1 aesthetic is really destroying my interest in this line.
Jetfire's vehicle mode is stupid.
Springer is bad in both alt modes.
Impactor doesn't look anything like the IDW one (I know it's on purpose but still... darn)
And the seekers just suck.

Now some positives.
I LOVE cybertron optimus (my first transformers show, so, yay!)
Omega is cool.
I'm not going to have to spend a lot of money this year.

Seems like you've already answered the question. I think I'll wait for a drop as well, $80 stings a little bit and that has nothing to do with perceived value. This line is already beating up my wallet as is.

Omega Superme looks cool. But I just don't have the space for him, no pun intended. If he will go on a significant sale I might work something out.
