    I was inspired by this first image to create my own version, found below:

    I don't like parts forming any more than the next collector, but it would have reall improved the figure had they made the backpack a detatchable riot shield.

    I found an old post here from 2014 where someone used a hobby saw and cut the backpack off at the post and modified it so that she could hold it, yet it still clipped in place in her alt mode.

    I tried taking the screw out, but that wasn't enough to detach it. :(  I don't want to cut my figure... but it looks a lot better with the modification.

    Nice to see them altogether. They're quite an impressive troop. I'ms truck by how good the 'con representation is.
    Only one I passed on out of that group was Armada Megatron.
    But then I've also got the CW Seekers, PotP Rodimus, and LG Super Ginrai and Godbomber.

    Galvatron in this instance but thank you, I love a big battlefield like image. I get your foreground comments and I appreciate it, I guess I just wanted to get into my head shrink down and pick out a point of view shot. A lot of images I like in film and art have noise or obstruction in front of the viewer so was trying to emulate that really. I will try again soon I think....

    Thank you again, I like suggested narrative in an image. It was inspired by the amazing colours of the bots in Titans Return, I wanted to pitch them into a battle where they are just about to turn on the battlefield and beat a fighting retreat.

    Rearranged this shelf today. Not really happy with it :(  Tried both scorp and metro in base mode - but it took up the whole shelf with just two toys and the ramps hung over the edge.
    So I mucked about until they ended up like this.

    Finally picked up one of those and he is amazing despite the lack of knee bends. Sorry for the flashy pictures.
    Now, off to my workbench in order to implement all necessary modifications.

    Also, I kinda mistransformed his arms for an altmode better configuration.
