The backpack holding Titan Masters isn't actually in the instructions. I don't think even the nose cockpit is.

They’re not, that particular part I wasn’t referring to. Just how to tab stuff in properly typically is. :lol:

You dont. But at least you are hedging your bets that you own him and have 90 days to wait on a sale. The original user was talking about waiting to buy him on Back Friday, and I was just responding that buying him now wouldn't make a difference due to the the 90 day return window.


If, like me, you are intent on purchasing him at Walmart, another way is to get it and put it on layaway. I doubt Walmart itself will have a Black Friday sale on Siege Jetfire, since probably only a few stores will have it, and they seem to sell really fast. I'm sure both Amazon & Pulse (and maybe some other online retailers) will have it on sale, but just finding Jetfire at a B&M store was a small miracle for US residents, I'm sure they'll all sell quickly, but online they seem to be plentiful. I was fortunate to have the funds at the time i found him, otherwise it definitely would have been layaway for me. (which walmart happens to only offer this time of year)

In relation to the people not reading instructions, part of it I feel is some level of cockiness after the Prime Wars trilogy being a lot easier conversions. Some reviewers (not all) just wing it without bothering to look to see if they're missing anything, like some reviewers not seeing Prime's trailer hitch in truck mode because they didn't notice the panels to unfold. A lot of the transformations are more involved now and some reviewers that are just trying to get the review out first don't really take the time to understand the figure before posting. Though with the one guy getting the figures straight from the factory definitely removes some incentive to be the first to review because they've already been beaten to the punch before the figure's announcement :lol:

Dude totally :lol: and again, I get it I really do I just wouldn’t put something out where I’m trying to struggle and figure it out. As a genuine fan or reviews, just yakking like a fanboy ;)^

Now back to your regular Siege programming.

Refraktor camera mode is my new Cybertronian battlefield ordinance. Scales perfectly with the other bots and it’s easy to imagine a camera is just being a big canon.

In this case I believe it is because the packaging lacks french, and Quebec requires it.

SO WHAT'S THE POINT FROM ORDERING ANYTHING FROM PULSE?
Seriously, even if I could, the super high shipping costs, taxes anyway, and the exchange rate give us a pretty bloody raw deal.

Let's hope for my fellow québécois who ordered from 3&UP will have their set.


Seriously, for fox's sake... 8-}

First Video Review for Transformers Siege Titan Class Omega Supreme

Postby william-james88 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 8:28 am

Transformers Siege Omega Supreme shipped from Toysrus.ca for those who preordered it back when it was available (it has long since been sold out). That means some canucks have it and thus it was only a matter of time before a review came along. Below you will find the first video review for this titan class figure. The review is by DCompose.
Release dates are not consistent throughout online retailers in the US, with Amazon saying October 4th, for instance. Could this be the best partsforming Transformer toy of all time? Let us know what you think of the figure and if you will jump on him right away or not. If you do want him, he is still available for preorder at several online retailers (like Amazon) for $159.99 USD.

If you have any news, rumours, or hot new sightings to report which you feel should be front paged,

That's disappointing that they kept that orange-y light piping for the eyes. I guess I'll need to figure out the best blue to paint them over with

So has anyone who ordered Mirage or Impactor from Amazon back when they indicated it would be released September 1st, and delivered Sept. 5th received any type of updates from Amazon yet?

Mine still says arriving tomorrow by 8pm, but hasn't actually shipped yet. I'm getting curious on what will actually arrive first this week or next, Mirage from Amazon, the SDCC Refracktor set from Pulse, the SDCC botbot set from Pulse or Zetar from Pulse next week. As long as they all arrive by Sept. 12th, I'll be a very happy b-day boy. Of course the flip side is if they arrive before Sept. 12, I still won't be able to enjoy them until then, so I guess no rush.

Mirage and Impactor haven't shipped yet and some people have gotten emails saying the figures are delayed. Thus far this year Amazon hasn't gotten anything in stock that wasn't first seen at retail.
