    I think QC on the Tank mold was hit or miss for all of it's uses. I got two Brawl's from the same case one was floppy, the other was fine. All my other tanks, CW Nosecone and the Liokaiser legs, are fine.

    My Brawl was very floppy but as I said, a tiny bit of Miliput fixed it for the most part. Although I wish I had the other foot that came with Explorer to go with the one from FP Swindle but I don't mind the Asymmetry. As long as he stands up. Customizing Bruticus wasn't easy but worth the time and money.

    Which would you recommend? I like CW Magnus More, but Siege has that nice blue and white Optimus.

    Hey guys, can someone please post post or link to some high resolution pics of that Bayverse Custom Combiner that was on social media in recent weeks?
    I meant to save the images for ref, but never got around to and now can't find them anywhere.
    Thanks. ;)

    If you want the G1 like core white Optimus, and a better articulated combiner robot mode, go Seige. If you like IDW, or want a somewhat functional alt. mode, or want to display him next to PotP Rodimus or Optimus, go for CW. It depends on your preferences.

    In order to get a near-perfect G1 update, you'd have to mix both figures.

    I own neither of these molds, but let me explain them a little more.

    CW Ultra Magnus is IDW-inspired, meaning that the core figure is Minimus Ambus, who also transforms and can fit on the back of Magnus's truck mode. The plastic is thinner compared to the Siege version of the figure.

    Siege Ultra Magnus is based on the original G1-era toy of Ultra Magnus, meaning that it has the white lookalike of Optimus. (Side note: I call the inner robot Convoy.)
    While it lacks in height compared to CW's version, it more than makes up for it with increased playability and mass. In fact, its actually heavier than previous leaders.

    I would say, don't do it.
    I have Unique toys Bruticus.
    They break very easy and fast.
    Onslaught get slaughtered by himself.
    I've been begging for replacement parts for 7 month.
    And at 31th December last year, it came on my doorsteps by surprise.
    I never thought i would get it.

    Ordin does look awesome.

    He can go on the trailer, but there is actually a bit he clips in to make him hidden away in vehicle mode. Like how weapons store on some toys.
    The trailer is made more for deluxe size toys in alt mode.

    Compilation of all the recent variations I've tried out for Galvatronus.
    Thinking of getting another G2 to see what two green tank legs would be like.

    Personally diggin' the 3rd pics' setup, but would like to see the legs reversed to show the jets... Galvatronus always seemed a "white pants after labor day" kinda guy.

    Also, perhaps fakeoff (jet blastoff) with offroad was how he was meant to be after all with the buster/hydra jets?

    There's a compartment in the chest you can stash him in, if I remember correctly. The cab opens up to reveal a cockpit for Minimus to sit in.
