Gotta be honest, the Cel-shading actually doesn't look as bad as I though it would on Prime, but it's still not great in my opinion. Definitely going to pick up Bluestreak and Soundblaster, but has anyone else noticed Soundblaster's paint being a bit sloppy/fuzzy? Like, the Decepticon badge was almost covered with the silver on multiple copies that I saw



Still waiting for that dispaly to show up at the Walmart where im working. If not its gonna be a long ride home Monday stopping at every walmart till i find it. :HEADHURTS:

I have found the displays are right at the front entrance like on the wall immediately to the right hidden with football gear and chips I walked right past it and only saw it when I was leaving, they are out there!

Got Ironhide down to tinker with Ratchet and there are more differences than I originally thought.

While WFC Smokescreen and Prowl have been rather easy to get due to their non exclusive status, Transformers Siege Bluestreak is that one Datsun that some Canadians feared not getting (at least not for cheap). Well, the toy is now up on Walmart.ca for $29.99, which is the standard price of deluxe toys in Canada (it comes out to $23 USD). For those wanting all three, Prowl is rather easy to find at both Toysrus and Walmart stores in Canada while Smokescreen is still available at Toysrus.ca.

Ah neat, I hadn't even noticed his forearms are different from each other.

I feel that Ratchet wears the mold better than Ironhide. Glad I made the Walgreens hunt.

While I don't like Rung as a character at all I can definitely appreciate the uniqueness of his mold and the fact it came out in Siege, of all things. Still totally planning to sand down his face and turn him into protoforms/stasis pods. :twisted:

Thats just mean, what did the first Transformer ever (in IDW ver 1 at least) do to you :-P

Still, an awesome plan for a custom, it'd be interesting for hasbro to make protoform toys at one point for army building. Just call them blanks and be done with it.

Different strokes for different folks :) I had no problems with him and I liked him being Primus, especially since other then the ability to regenerate (a bet limited) and creating matrixes, he wasn't specially powerful which worked well with what Shockwave was laying down in the other book about the Primes as he created them in a weird bootstrap paradox. Yeah though I can understand some not liking him.

I love Rung like crazy come on he’s one of the best creations from one of the most thoughtful Transformers writers ever the only bummer is they didn’t go full Deluxe Weaponizer with him. But hey that’s just my opinion :lol:

Damn, Rung looks really good! they did him pretty well.

That Rodimus is on my list to eventually get. That is the perfect MTMTE Rodimus. Best comic book I've ever read

‘Best’ can be debated till the end of time as an old collector I realize that, but for me personally I don’t think I’ve ever been so emotionally invested in a comic and the characters. It just connected with me like nothing else. i really miss it. I miss them.

Best is entirely subjective to individuals, but that's my opinion. It's the only comic i consistently reread and thoroughly enjoy during every reread :lol:
