Re: Just a simlpe question for everyone

It is interesting to see TF collectors from different places in the world value their toys so differently. I can't speak of other places, but in China, Six-gun and Cog are most demanded figures of the whole Siege line. Price-wise, they are sold for approximately $40 CAD each, way above their retail price, while other deluxe figures such as Sideswipe is only ~$19 CAD. Chinese collectors are so excited about the almost infinite playability of these 2 figures. They are definitely not only treated as the sidekick of Metroplex, and no one cares if it is a flimsy design.

I would look at it as per something that many here are too young to have known or remember it; the Micronauts.

These two figures are very similar to them, and it's a line of toys that is missing. It's part of why the combiners have been popular, and always have... People want to "build their own" robots, customize and such, and these two figures provides that.

Yes, that is a really nice one, all positive reviews.

Wow, that is really amazing! Had to take a second look, can't believe those are the same Siege toys.

Guess, that is the answer, Siege Six-Gun is a must have.
