I'm assuming Pulse, but when it ships. Not sure of their cancellation policy.

Yeah, Pulse. There will be no cancellation, but I don't have the 80 at the moment.

I believe that BBTS and Amazon doesn't charge on pre-orders until the item is in-stock. While I like that option, it's a bit of a gamble as they don't warn you before the charge.

I play the pre-order/cancellation hokey pokey game at BBTS frequently, so I like to know if that's an option. I have Smokescreen on pre-order at HP, I'll go check if there is a cancel option for giggles. There is after clicking view order.

Pulse doesn't charge until the item is in stock. You'll see a charge pending on your account for a day, but that's just for the authorization. They never actually charge you until the item is ready to ship.

It's definitely good news to some, but not helping me fight the FOMOnster (thanks zerowolf for the new word).
My advice would be to give in and get that pre-order in, fight the FOMOnster another day. This figure is fantastic, and honestly feels worth its price tag. I loved T30 Jetfire and thought I had no need for this one, but Siege has proved me wrong on pretty much every figure they've put out that I already had (OP, Megs, UM, seekers). Boy am I glad I have no will power and pre-ordered immediately. You won't regret it if you do.
Promise ? ;;) ;)

I have no doubt that Jetfire is a good figure and worth the price of admission (which seems correct). It's the size of the damn thing, not scale but the actual physical size of it. FoMo is partially responsible for my lack of space and I'm not sure where I'm going put the bastard. Hell I just finished "PredaKOng" and that monster is sitting behind my second monitor holding cables.

I like Siege Jetfire, but do I want it or am I afraid I'll want it more when I can't get it? Design wise and size I like T30 better. I'm going to wait until I'm sure that I'm sure and if I miss out... I miss out.


I'd gamble on that promise being correct (the figure is just that damn good), but you know you best. I did share similar space and "where the hell will I put it concerns". I lucked out in that the shelf I had my T30 Jetfire is tall enough to accomodate Siege Jetfire. They take up about the same amount of shelf space (width and depth) except for the height. I actually do like his scale better versus Thrilling 30, I like having an oddball size mixed in with the standard sizes. Good luck on whatever your decision is.

I got my Siege Jetfire from Hasbro Pulse on Saturday, Carytheone, and he is indeed fantastic! He's very hefty and sturdy, stands about as tall as one of the Combiner Wars combiners, and is a perfect representation of the original Sunbow character model. Don't miss out! I was in the same boat as you before, thinking that the T30 Jetfire and CW Ultra Magnus were fine as is. Nope! The Siege versions blow them out of the water!

Seems like an easy decision if you prefer T30 to Siege...?

Since images were posted and suggestions were made, I've been wanting to take a picture of team Trypticon. I'm bored at work and just "discovered" that old Tryps doesn't fit on my desk.

Image

Has anyone tried integrating Brunt with Trypticon in base/ship mode as a cannon/tower G1 style yet? I've searched the webernets and have come up short. I haven't taken the time or made the room to try it myself yet.

I will too. I am waiting until black friday/cyber monday. It's far enough into the year to see at what pace these are selling and not far enough for it to be unobtainable online, and it will be at a price where I wouldnt mind paying for a figure I am not as excited about (since I too preffer the look of T30 Jetfire). I did that with Predaking last year and it worked like a charm.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a flight stand for Jetfire? He's really big so he doesn't fit on my stand I have for other figures.

Some guy on reddit asked the same thing. Apparently there's a kind of stand with a 5mm port to put on the bottom of jet mode. I also recommend getting more than one stand, like at least 3-4 ;)

That'd be a mighty big/strong stand. I've been looking for a stand that can support a CW combiner and would be interested if you find something that works.

Bot or alt mode? I've seen those three armed stands that people use for jet modes and such. Might be more realistic to find. I believe D-Max got a pretty nice one recently.

I don't care for how the arms fold up to make a wall of a spoiler, kind of kills the F1 car sleekness. This will be the rare case of a Siege figure not replacing an older CHUG toy.
Will he at least be accompanying the older one, given the accessories and actually having 5mm-compatible hands?

Not sure if I understand the question, but I think the answer is no because I'm skipping Siege Mirage. I probably should have made that clearer.

I do like the look of the figure and wouldn't mind a redeco as not Dragstrip. Whoa, deja vu :HALUC:

So how is everyone handling Brunt's pistol/cannon tip in bot mode? I felt the official way puts it a little higher than I'd like and I've settled on this. It's not the firmest peg, but does snap in a bit. The downside is how wiggly it is.

Image

I like the ride height and it gives the impression of "hey, I actually transformed". Not that I don't like the partformeriness of the weaponizers.

Image

When I was going with the official way, I rotated the turret 45°. It pegs in just ever so slightly more and I like the way it looks from behind.

Image

Either way I love dude's Dr. Claws :twisted:

Something funny that occurred to me... Skyfire and Reflector are two characters that were phased out of the cartoon... and now with the SIEGE line, they've been released around the same time, both are kind of difficult to get -- Amazon messed up the Jetfire pre-orders and never even put ones up for Refraktor.

I just got around to it today. I stated with ship mode and just 1 Brunt and it actually wasn't that easy to come up with something I liked. There is also a pretty good lack of useful 5mm holes especially in ship mode. I wanted symmetry and Brunt's arm pieces are really the only symmetrical pair of parts. So those became claws for the front of the ship because why not, and I was able to barely put together a central cannon that used the 5mm holes on top of the part of the ship on either side of the main ramp for city mode. I say barely because Brunt's crotch/upper thigh part is just like 1mm to short for the 5mm posts on his knees fit snugly in the holes on Trypticon.

20190708_150953.jpg


Then I moved onto using 2 Brunts for better options with symmetry.

20190708_162312.jpg


Then I switched to city mode and changed things up a little more. I went with 3 weaponizers for each city bot with 2 used for supplementing the ship/city and the 3rd to be the actual character. So Trypticon gets a brunt, and a bunch of bling in the form of brunt pieces.

Weapon: Star Saber Sword
I want to add some thoughts of my own towards Brunt.

First off, Cary, I put mine on the left shoulder and rotate the turret to allow it to fit. I think it looks pretty good poking up there.

And secondly, Brunt is fantastic. He went from a tank/tower accessory of Trypticons to being an amazing standalone figure. He rocks! The new and unique design with that awesome head really help him stand out, and those massive claws are simply delicious. Transformation is fun too, the most fun of the Weaponizers I think, and the tank mode is a beast. Oh and his purple is perfection. that is the shade of purple that should be used.

Buy him, he deserves it, and you deserve him

We may be the only two. I really like them and they are the only figures in that mold I'm keeping. If new ones were released they'd have to be pretty **** good for me to jump.
I, too, also like CW Huffer and Pipes as well.

CW Pipes and Huffer are my versions of both as well, i like them even if they aren't that accurate. I really love T30 Gears too.

I know everyone and their mom said it, but Brunt just scream 'Beast Machine Vehicon but less stupid'.
