Some of his pieces are a bit off white, so if you’re talking about the flaps on the wings and stuff, then they’re already not completely white.

Sun light is a beast. Not only can it discolor, but it can deteriorate plastic as well. My collection room / office has large southern facing windows, so I make sure I pull the curtains in the afternoon.

Everywhere I turn -- in-hand pix of Siege Jetfire. Amazon has screwed me over with its barren pre-orders. [-( Also, where's Reflector? Is Hasbro playing hard to get or something?

As far as I can tell reflector is just gone. Every e-store that got any past preorders were absolutely set upon

With reflector I think he got caught with the “street date” issue we’ve been running into. Entertainment Earth hasn’t shipped any of that wave yet (that i’m aware of). That said Jetfire arrived yesterday from Amazon. With Springer and Red Alert arriving from Pulse (with an accidental extra Jetfire)

He’s not street dated, I got some from meijer, seems like they got a lot of his wave in company wide, beyond that, bbts got theirs, mine should be shipping out soon; I think this is a case of Hasbro underestimating how much people wanted a reflector proper

Maybe they're doing it on purpose to get everyone hyped.

So a thing I've noticed is that bbts had thundercracker as arriving in february; I'm almost certain they don't change the dates themselves, they just let the site update it every time a month rolls over

No, those are new, where are they from? I saw similar stock photos for Impactor on someone's Twitter and haven't been able to find a source or any for Barricade. If you have the rest of them for the wave, you'd probably get a news credit for that, and I at least would love to see confirmation of Barricade's final deco.

Can confirm. He was not made with articulation in mind. He really only shines in tank mode.

Managed to get that first-wave shipping of Jetfire from Amazon, I got lucky. Man, what a fantastic figure. Just so well done! Love the ratcheting joints, the scale, the accessories and the transformation. Top notch.

My *only* complaint is that there isn't any place to store his chest armor unless you decide to have him wear it on his, uh, chest. It would be neat if it could peg on as a backpack if you just wanted him to be his regular Jetfire mode, not super-combat mode.


Alongside Jetfire, I got Galaxy Upgrade Prime. I'm a *little* let down by him, because I think Voyager Prime's bot mode is so damn perfect. It's cool having Galaxy Prime be in slightly similar scale with Magnus, but I still think Voyager Prime takes the cake. I'm going back and forth on it.

I'm expecting a few more of the new figs coming in soon, I'll be sure to post impressions.

I've never really studied Mirage, but he seems to have quite the interesting transformation. Looks like his legs house the front wheels and fold up over the chest, but where does the nose of the alt mode come from? His legs or back? Also really digging the transparent blue.

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.

Impactor looks good but not great and will fill a hole. He also seems to have a lot of leg movement going on with rotating panels. The rest seems pretty straight forward. I like a lot of what he has going on and I love his colors =P~

I hope if Lancer becomes a reality, she matches Impactor ;)^

Not sure if this is newsworthy or not, but Hasbro Pulse has Jetfire back up for pre-order with a ship date of August 8 for anyone who missed out on the initial run.

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