    Yeah I've seen these but the finish on them isn't the standard I like. I prefer to keep it to JRC or Nonnef for consistency / quality.

    I grabbed a few things, especially excited for the peg hole fillers for Galvatron, I don't have the guts to pry those arms apart. :O

    The worst part is, that could be the basis of a more legit transformation for that toy, albeit for Elita. Although my idea would be to replace all the limbs for ones that make her look more toned and built, and the bulk is the result of actual folded vehicle shell or parts.

    My same problem as with the official SG Megatron: What's securing the un-collapsed legs in jet mode from drooping, especially with that bit of weight on the forelegs?

    The hairdryer "fix" is a mess waiting to happen. Inducing multiple warps is a surefire way to mess up the shoulder joints. Even without separating the joints, heat also typically loosens joints.

    Probably nothing. The 'new' alt mode regardless is jank no matter how it's dressed up.

    I think they have a thread in the eBay section, I'm pretty sure I've seen them there before.

    So for big wheels for Siege Crosshairs, is the Alpha Magnus pretty much the only game in town?

    Really really nice kit, but sadly it comes from Australia so the shipping is pretty brutal.

    The Huffer upgrade kit from Go Better arrived yesterday. Man, I love these Go Better kits. I know they're 3D-printed, but with the smoothness and the paint they don't really feel like it, and they just fit like a glove. I hope they're durable enough to last the test of time.

    If (and I realize this is a pretty big if) you have access to 3D printing, the files for that one are available for free: Upgrade Kit for Transformers Siege Crosshairs by jesslynmakesrobots

    Then thank Primus I'm not getting SG Megatron, nor am I gonna replicate Prime's jet form for my Siege Megatron extra parts, going instead for more Fall of Cybertron look. Will still look like a tank with wings but at least it's secure

    Yeah that's what keeps me from pulling the trigger, almost $17 for shipping.
