It’s completely to Red Alert’s detriment that it will automatically be compared to Sideswipe. Because that’s a fight that just isn’t fair.
We’re back with another installment of The Wishlist Trick so we can order Transformers Siege Greenlight even while the product listing is not available.
Reflector is something that has been a struggle to get a real updating of for as long as Transformers Generations, or “Classics”, has been a thing. Previously the only modern toy made with the intent of being Reflector was a small accessory piece included with the Legends class Shrapnel, released something like 5 years ago now. There was the Botcon 2016 option too, retooled a bit from Legends Shockwave, but it still wasn’t quite there. But now, with Siege, Reflector is finally getting a proper, long overdue update. The only catch is you have to be able to buy three of it.
As I recently outlined with my gallery and review of Sixgun, it’s a fantastic addition to the Weaponizer play pattern that can get a ton of mileage especially when used together with Cog. Amazon has Deluxe wave 2 set for an in-stock date of April 1st, and while right now most of the wave is only being offered from marketplace sellers at higher prices, keep reading to find out how you can preorder Sixgun right now for SRP!
Time for another Camera Blog post where I talk about a new camera announcement! Canon announced the EOS RP, a mildly-simplified version of their EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera, featuring a roughly thousand-dollar price cut versus the R, bringing it within striking distance of the price point of Sony’s current Alpha series APS-C offerings. But would it be any good for us?
In stock on Amazon as of this writing, the new wave of Studio Series Deluxes is just waiting to be ordered – and you can help out the site when you do it!
I need to remember that this is supposed to sort of be a photography blog too besides being a place for my photos or whatever else I do.
So, Sony announced a new camera a couple days ago! But not within a range where any photographers were probably really asking for new choices. The new camera coming Soon is the Sony A6400, the latest in series behind the A6300 and A6500. It’s okay; to Sony, numbers do work this way. But you know, it took almost no time to see that I didn’t need this camera. You don’t need this camera either. I don’t think anyone whose primarily interest is photography needs this new camera. Because for photographers, its existence is virtually pointless.
It’s a delight to be able to bring you perhaps the very first in-hand photo gallery of the new Voyager Megatron from Transformers Siege! Previously the closest contact anyone has had was the select few invited to events like SDCC and New York Comic Con where the toys could be viewed in person on display, but with this assortment starting to make its way to retail in the United States, we can go for a much more involved examination of the toy. There’s 88 photos waiting for you in the gallery…
Several Deluxe assortment Transformers from the soon-to-be-released Siege line now have product pages on Amazon for US customers. These go beyond wave 1, and quite possibly even beyond wave 2, though we have very little information on what’s even to be part of the second wave right now. If you’d like to preorder these for yourself, keep reading for product links to each of the new toys.
