While the US has been having fun with new generations line toy for a little while (as per usual), Siege has finally hit Canada all at once. Here is a quick rundown of where certain classes are found in various retailers:

Walmart: New Siege display (picture below) for Deluxes and Voyagers. These are apart from the Transformers section, in a central aisle.
Toysrus: While the Battle Masters were already reported, they now have the Micromasters, Deluxes and Voyager classes.
EB Games: They have the Micromaster two packs.

The prices are the same across the board with the Micromasters at $12.99, Deluxes at $29.99 and Voyagers at $39.99. These are all in Canadian dollars. Like in the US, the MSRP is made to match the movie figures price jump we saw last year with The Last Knight. Of course, there are always deals and right now at Toysrus there is a BOGO 50% off sale. So buying two Siege deluxes gives you 25% off each figure.

This info is brought to us by MeGrimlock78 on our boards and Dangard Ace from Cybertron.ca.

This is the perfect example of why I dislike the 'weathering' effect on these toys. It is extremely haphazardly applied. They took this pristine white figure and just flicked some silver on this thighs AND NOWHERE ELSE!
Because the thighs are the only part of the inner figure's front that are exposed when the figure is wearing its armor. The rest of the body is so pristine because the armor piece cover up all those pristine parts, keeping them clean from the battle damage that the armor pieces themselves get covered in.

I’m with Lucky on this; would the lack of battle damage on the thighs of the Power Armor really detract from the look the way including it on the core robot does?

I realize I'm not a board-certified expert like Sabrblade, so you may have skimmed over what I had sad about it. So here:

So when apportioning Magnus' paint operations, they presumably decided it was more important to weather the armored mode since that's the part most people would care about. And since the thighs of the cab robot are the only part left exposed, they're what gets the weathering.

Six months since the reveal of siege and people still complaining about the weathering effect and saying the same stuff over and over and over. ;)^

Generally I'm okay with the battle damage effect cause it's subtle. And then there's Soundwave being caked in the stuff :lol: He's the only one I take a lot of issue with, and mostly because of the cracks in his... Window? Would that be the right term? :lol:

Don't like Magnus at all. Surprised he can even pose at all being so bricky looking. And his butt ends up as the truck's lower front. Like when he crashes into enemies in truck mode he's butt-bashing them?

Shockwave looks fine but should have left all that backpack junk off him and released him as a voyager. Way too expensive for a voyager size figure and awful accessory.

1. Ultra Magnus doesn't look that much blockier than the Combiner Wars toy (and his G1 design has always been blocky, which you should know full well from your comics), why are you so surprised he can pose? Also, A. We've known how blocky he is for months, why are you only trashing on him for it now? and B. the truck bumper had to go somewhere. I'm pretty sure Optimus has a bumper butt too.

2. Regarding Shockwave, they needed somebody to be a Decepticon Leader-class toy. And whether you like the weapon harness or not (I think it's fine), it brings him up to Leader size, which is the important thing. Besides, they have at least 4 Voyager slots allocated to Decepticons already (Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, and Thundercracker).

Siege have properly hit Canada.

Eh.

Call me a pessimist, but I'm pretty sure there will be FOKKAL in my local Laval stores. :-x

I like Magnus and the fact he has a transforming cab but I prefer the CW's aesthetics so far... it seems they fixed my biggest complaint re the CW figure - a lack of ankle tilts (and here they might have not bothered to straighten them). He seems to have borrowed the mp buttflap feature tho. Then on the plus side he does have a better gun. He does feel like he was a leftover from the POTP gimmick tho.

I actually like shockwave - the kibble seems weird but it kinda goes with the character and with the weaponiser gimmick.

Ultra Magnus looks really, really good. Not perfect, but still very good. The vehicle mode is awesome and it's an Ultra Magnus that does the "power armour" thing! Hallelujah!

And that Shockwave...homina homina. I want him so much.

So after staring deeply into Magnus's eyes and getting lost, I came to the conclusion that the Siege greebling is very similar to that of Bandai's NXEDGE figures.

Nah, I'm not fond of the he CW toy but it has a lot more angles to break up the constant rectangles whereas this one seems to be all rectangles plus that truck mode is just solid brickiness and somehow looks messy at the same time, at least his traditonal alt-mode looked like it had more of an obvious purpose. And I did mention that a while ago but this first time I'm seeing the back view as i rarely come in this thread (it's usually when there's a news item). And why bring up the comics? The only time I'd want the toys to resemble anything from the Marvel Comics is Geoff Senior angry/evil Decepticon faces and possibly some colour schemes (always did prefer Galvatron in mostly grey/silver), for the most part they used the cartoon character models and I'm really no fan of that. :P


2. Regarding Shockwave, they needed somebody to be a Decepticon Leader-class toy.

Yeah but the only one of those I was remotely interested in was Shockwave but his price puts him way above what I wanted to pay for a voyager sized Shocky cos it's about £32 for a voyager here and about £50 for a Leader. For that junky backpack. It's a cheat. Not a true Leader class figure at all. Just a voyager with a goofy accessory to up the price. Could have just put Soundwave in the Leader class and given you a few of his tape buddies in the package too. Might have made up for that lame alt-mode he has at least.

What's more amusing to me is where the 5mm port ends up... You can have UM shooting a gun out his bum! Especially if you put a blast effect there...Do you think he's got time for that?

I didn’t skim it, I read the post. I don’t doubt that they did in fact ration the paint the way you say, I simply don’t like that it’s there.

Carnivius, by your logic RiD Optimus and all 3 Unicron Trilogy versions of Optimus are "Not a true Leader class figure at all. Just a voyager with a goofy accessory to up the price". Hell, by your logic any Leader-class figure where it's not all one figure - even Ultra Magnus and his armor - is that. :roll:

Speaking of Ultra Magnus, his vehicle mode is based off this (and, by dint of that, real car carriers at least when it comes to the trailer):
Image
It was done because A. The RiD cab makes him look Cybertronian and B. A G1-based Ultra Magnus trailer in size with a Voyager cab would end up too big for the Leader-class price point. That would result in a Supreme-class toy.

Regarding Soundwave, they had to give him an altmode that looked both Cybertronian and like it could move under its own power while preserving his tape deck look. And he can totally still turn into a tape deck, looking at his legs, they just haven't advertised it.

Now me, I would have preferred them to make Megatron into a Leader-class toy and contrive a spaceship out of this:
Image
But I guess they wanted to make the more important guy more accessible, and what they did with Shockwave doesn't look bad IMO.

Also, why are you not a fan of the cartoon? Because it had the good guys actually being heroic, had the big leader guys actually in charge, and didn't have Optimus commit idiotic suicide over accidentally killing video game NPCs?

Well, think of how the armored mode would look with the rest of it weathered and the thighs clean :roll:

Sorry ZeldaTheSwordsman, I'm in the same boat with thoughts of the G1 toon :P but I agree with you that the prime blowing himself upon the G1 comics was a silly thing as well :lol:
