I always put the rifle in the fist in jet mode to cover up the hand. I'll definitely try that on the new one.

On the subject of Springer, if I manage to find another one in store, I'll probably pick him up. I like the bot mode and car mode, but the copter mode is way too blocky. I know that it's G1 accurate, but if we're honest that's not always a compliment. T30 Springer is still my personal favorite design

On the subject of Apeface, I'm looking forward to giving him the TR weapon drone thing and turning him into a Targetmaster and Headmaster :lol: May even give him the Apeface Titanmaster just for a different look sometimes. Can't wait to see what Hasbro manages to give us for Snapdragon :-D

Doesnt look to be anything that pops up to make apefaces robot head look bigger like on the TR figures, not that its needed, but hoping figure size remains comparable.

I'd assume it's just lighting and such here. Unless you're referring to all the images of Apeface from conventions and such, then I have no clue

Apeface isn't wasn't on my radar, but damn it looks like a fun toy. And I love the brilliant double faced headmaster action, pretty clever.

For me Siege Springer blew T30 out of the water. I always found T30 fiddly (in all modes) and feel that Sandstorm wears the mold better with much tighter tolerances leading to both alt-modes pegging in nice and tight. Also just I love Sandstorm's VTOL backpack so much :x

T30 Springer lent his sword to Seige and slipped quietly into storage.

Take another look. The whole beast mode "muzzle" is a separate piece that covers up the lower half of the "beast" side face of the Titan Master. With just the Titan Master, you only get the red visor of the gorilla face. The mouth and "nose" are attached to the main robot body and sit right in front of the Titan Master when in beast mode.

So long as that crisp 'chk!' never becomes a crisp 'ccrak!' sound. :oops:

Thankfully the knees have a loosened up a bit, and seem a little better after a few transformations, but the hip ratchets still worry me.. definitely being very careful with them

This Québécois got the forbidden fruit!
At first, I found that 100$CAN plus taxes set pricey, but it's just 10$ more expensive than 3 full priced figures for all the extra stuff.

Seriously, the box alone is shiny all over. Even inside! Plus, a full color instruction manual with extra tidbits of lore. Not only it have 4 extra camera parts, but there's also a :KREMZEEK: because why not?

Image
Image

The spaceships are simple, but does the job. For a "bonus" mode, it's not too bad. It's unfortunate that the extra camera parts cannot be used at all in this mode.

Image

The bots are absolutely fantastic and the extra parts are well used. Only the heads that have not be remolded keep the set from ultimate perfection.

Image

I really don't regret paying extra to get the special set. Next to my G1 original, this set is just glorious! Beside, Maketoys Visualizer had already filled the "cartoon accurate" spot. The Siege Refraktor 3 pack is very worth getting.

I don't think I saw this elsewhere here and it's not so substantial to news really but if anyone was like 'if only Ultra Magnus was like five bucks off I totally would get him...' well right now at Amazon he's 11% off which is a hair over five bucks.

Here's the link if anyone's interested.

Just about the same deal for Galaxy Prime on Amazon too, just like five bucks off if anyone's game.

So, I just had a thought: What's Apeface's little symbol going to be? Is it going to be proudly similar to Starscream's, or will it be a new one that he'd share with Snapdragon if/when they release him?

G1 Apeface and Snapdragon are similar but very different in how they transform.

I was just looking at the new Siege Apeface images and you know, just a bit...that image of him from the back, if you had different arms for that ape, like if they were dino legs, then made the rear ape legs little dino arms...the jet nose would work as a tail...

I hope Snapdragon is a whole new robot for sure but I can actually see how they could retool this version of Apeface into a Snapdragon. Swap in a few new parts maybe a new front end for the jet mode.
