    It still comes with the same accessories it did originally. Unless by "removal of accessories" you're talking about the four Omega Keys that came sold separately with other figures and the new one still doesn't have despite the other four figures never being repainted.

    I wish they removed the accessories and retooled the mold so it didn't need them because the Omega Lock and Cyber Key gimmick doesn't really make sense outside of the original Cybertron/Galaxy Force toy line.

    In that case what about putting earlier versions of a mold into modes that were only in the instructions for recolors... Like RID2001 Megatron only having 6 official modes while Galvatron has 10. Megatron can still do the four extra modes that were added to Galvatron because they're the same mold.

    Note: This only works with RID2001 Megatron not Car Robots Gigatron.

    CR Gigatron was released first and Devil Gigatron was a retool repaint meaning that the original version of the figure actually does not have the added tabs that make the four extra modes possible. RID Megatron and Galvatron were both made using the Devil Gigatron version of the mold which is why RID Megatron can do those four extra modes while CR Gigatron can't.

    Someone already did that. Most of the armor can be swapped between the two figures except for the chest because that section of the figures is an entirely different mold so the tabs won't hold the armor in place there.


    Ultra Magnus' armor almost completely hides the base figure so you can barely even tell the difference if Galaxy Upgrade Optimus is wearing it... except for the fact that the chest armor as previously stated can't clip into place so it just kinda sits loosely on the figure. There is more of a visual difference when you see Prime's armor on the Magnus figure.

    Ah, I'm not all that familiar with the Cybertron theme so I didn't realise they didn't come with it.

    As for swapping around the armour, I see. Do you happen to have a link to pics of the swapped armours? Thanks

    Well when I clicked on the video it says it's no longer available but you can still see the picture in the thumbnail.

    Scroll down till you see the video review for Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime.

    Not my videos by the way. I don't even own either of these figures. I only knew about the issues with the armor swap because I saw it on his channel.

    Thanks for the link, strangely it did work for me. But I see what you mean, not as cool as I thought it would be... though now I'm imagining someone doing a very expensive Radicon custom by taking elements of both to make Omega Prime :D

    Has anybody tried Siege Soundwave as a tank?
    I came up with a couple different variations. Hope you enjoy!
    Version 1:

    I really like both of these. I could go either way with the orientation of the legs, but I think Version 1 has the cleaner looking turret. And it incorporates Laserbeak easier.

    Oh wow those are great, I love the Soundwave Tank :eek: 

    Edit: How did you get the nacelle/gun/engine things (the bits from his robot mode backpack kibble) on the side like that? Did you detach them?

    :lol  That's awesome! The TITAN PUNCH bit now makes me want a Captain Falcon Transformer who turns into his racer xD

    Also thanks for these pics. I've been pondering getting Sideswipe but most of the stock photos the colours look a bit washed out but here his reds and whites seem to be much the same as Six Gun.

    ...I'll also be honest, I thought you were heading to Sideswipe giving the middle finger ¬.¬
