    Has anyone else used Backfire in this way? I thought it worked pretty well...

    If they make a Leader it will go pretty well in size with him. What would make it better is if someone repaints Backfire into Armada Leader-1.

    Great idea! Will try that.
    I was wondering: Does Megs' arm support the weight?

    The barrel kills it for me. Looks like a Pringles duck beak (don't deny that you've done that).

    Yup, all of those photos were taken with no support other than the arm joint, i don't keep him posed with the cannon straight out for days on end, but he has been sitting on my shelf like this since i got him

    It ain't perfect, but I'll be damned if it doesn't look halfway decent. He definitely needs a fusion cannon.....that's for sure. There's still the matter of how he got an autobot to cooperate......

    I should try that when I get my hands on a Megs. Right now I've bought 2x Backfire already coz my Prime's don't wanna let go of 'em.

    imo its doesn't need a leader megs for that. Both are scaled perfectly fine. Heck even MP-5 has trouble standing with its STOCK canon. Really don't understand the complaints made here...

    I'll definitely go with this look hopefully when they make premium megs.

    edit - Megs looks awesome now!
