Great news, Siege leader Cybertron Optimus Prime has been found in the US. he was found at a Walmart in Midland, MI. This toy is a heavy retool of leader Ultra Magnus. The figure's actual name is Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime, meaning this is still technically a G1 Optimus Prime figure, simply in an upgraded form, but that is merely the toy's bio and most fans see this as a Classics version of Cybertron / Galaxy Force Optimus Prime.

He retails for just shy of $50 USD. This sighting was sent to us by Manleybot who also spotted the latest Siege voyagers, Soundwave and Starscream, as well as the latest G1 minibot reissues, Warpath and Gears.

If you have found any of these, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

I wouldn't say that Omega Supreme "dwarfs" Devastator. He's just about a head taller, really. The height measurement of 24 inches that Hasbro is advertising is obviously referring to the wings on the back, which add a few inches in height. In terms of cartoon scale, again, looking at the height of the heads, this is actually pretty spot on.

Have you seen the bulk to Omega? It's not just the height difference, which is about 6" to the top of his rails, but also how much more bulky he is.

And dang, Galaxy Prime out already. He's like 3 or 4 months early

I found Soundwave and Starscream in a Walmart near my realm. But not "Galaxy" Optimus. Given all the other OP's I've had to review so far, I'd just as soon take a break from him for a while. ;)

And yeah - I don't classify Omega Supreme's wing-dings as being part of his 'height'. Otherwise, I could make TR Trypticon even taller than Omega by taking the tower/backpack section, extending the guns from them, and turning them so they point up.

If I find him in store I'll buy him and not wait for the July 1st pre order. Unless you think Pulse and Amazon will have Prime in earlier.

I got Sixshot today. Haven’t messed with the weaponizer gimmick yet, but he makes an awesome Goblin Glider.

I think you mean Sixgun. Sorry for correcting you ;)

When you have a chance to utilize his weaponizer gimmick, post some pics, I'd love to see those ;)

Ha! Yes, Sixgun. The real question is, was that a mistake on my part or did my phone autocorrect to Sixshot. I mean, it’s not like I haven’t texted that name a million times.

Now he and Ironhide can fight Starscream on equal footing:

Sixgun weaponizing? In that case here, have this again:
Ironhide, Super Mode!.JPG

I greatly prefer using his torso bits as a Doomfist as opposed to guns and/or armor so far, I feel they work so much better that way.

Finally got my first batch of SIEGE figures. Haven't had the time to really play with them yet. But I have a question about Cog, does he seriously not have individual thigh moment?

What do you mean , Cyb? Thigh swivel? He's got that.
That point of articulation aslo serves as the peg and port to attach and detach his legs for weaponizing.

Ninja'd as I got up to go check. But yup, he pretty much has just as much articulation as the rest of the Siege line.

That doesn't sound like what he's talking about, it sounds like when he moves one leg forward both move at once, but I could be wrong :-?

Well, I'm at work and no longer in the Collect-O-Tron. I can't remember off the top of the noodle. Are Cog's hips fused? I still think they move independently.

Maybe? I checked mine and erryting moves independently. I wonder if the torso can be cracked open to take a look?

Ultra Magnus's hips/legs want to move together when you only move one (forward/backwards), but they are not fused. Feels like the connections are just squeezed together really tight. If that is the case with Cog might just require a little brute force to break the grip.

IIRC, when I first opened my Cog, his thighs were stuck moving only in conjunction with each other at first. I had to kind of wiggle them in opposing directions to get them to move freely and independently.

I had time over the weekend to open up Siege Starscream and Soundwave. I love 'em both! I can't wait to get Thundercracker and Skywarp later. Starscream in robot mode looks fantastic standing next to Siege Megatron, Shockwave, and Soundwave. The tetra jet mode looks fine to me. The arms and legs tuck up underneath in person a little better than pictures have suggested. In particular, the wings come down almost flush with the bottom of the shins. Soundwave is great too, obviously. Robot mode is his best mode, far and away. The space barge is fine, but the lamppost is more just a cute nod to fans. It's barely transformed compared to the robot mode. My season 1 Decepticon shelf really starting to take shape now. I've got the Unite Warriors Constructicons lined up behind Megatron and his "generals." With the slight downsizing of Voyager size lately, the Constructicons all look nice and beefy compared to Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave, cementing them as the "enforcers" or "brutes" of the Decepticon army.
