    Welcome to the micro transaction trap of Transformers collecting. They're so small and detailed and relatively cheap...and then you wake up $100s or even $1000s later.

    Okay, now what's going on with that Siege Megatron + the KO Diaclone cannons that came with Huge Dragon? Would love to see some details/pics on that.

    Haha good eye
    That siege megatron has two floppy feet and i was and I was going to leave him in alt mode but I wanted his BFF canon for someone else so I pulled out those damn cannons from mft and was trying to figure out a way and I saw his arms and they just slid out and the. Mft port slid in, a tad loose but good enough for government work

    Can you compare him to an average deluxe or legends figure? The only iron factory bot I have is warpath and I'm curious to see how megatron sizes with other bots

    Sure thing - here he is next to IF warpath as well as fairly ubiquitous hastak legends.

    Dammit, it was bad enough when IF was producing figures of characters I knew and loved and had to buy. But IF is now turning characters from fiction about which I don’t care in the slightest into figures I desperately need. That’s cruel.

    So, bit of a mixed bag for me.

    The bot is solid and stylish, not Megs to me but cool enough to stand on its own merits.

    IF's usual tolerances are a major issue here tho, there are far too many thin panels with real tightness, its the 1st IF figure I've been fearful of breaking, and that makes the transformation less fun, I really had to fight with several pieces.

    Dragon mode is amazingly bloody cool. I love it. Its big too, here he is on top of BC mp warpath, cos who doesn't love a dragon riding a tank! Its got loads of posability and character, they nailed that aspect of it.

    [​IMG]

    Word of warning tho, mine has some significant stress marks out of the box, on the flank pieces. The tabs seem to be too big and it looks like they were forced in at some point. I've shaved mine down to prevent any breakage, they still hold just enough to prevent them springing off.
