    Sorry for the late reply, I was busy these few days but here's how I did these modes.

    For the targeting Megatron you'll need a version of Siege Megatron with all its accessories, the circular axe that came with the Legacy Laser Optimus mold and SSGE Megatron's cannon.
    IMG20240329165652.jpg

    The siege sword gun goes to Megatron's back.
    IMG20240329165717.jpg

    The circular axe plugs on the port at the top of Megatron's back, be sure to plug it in halfway since it gets loose fully plugged in.
    IMG20240329165742.jpg

    SSGE Megatron's cannon is optional, you can use anything that suits your preference.
    IMG20240329165801.jpg

    Now just position the arms forward.
    IMG20240329165824.jpg

    Swivel the backpack upwards.
    IMG20240329165848.jpg

    It should look like this from the back.
    IMG20240329170003.jpg

    The circular axe now acts as a targeting hud for Megatron, line it up with his face and you get shooting mode.

    Optimus is very easy, just configure the central tanker part like this.
    IMG20240329164947.jpg

    Plug it at the shoulder in the lower port.
    IMG20240329165056.jpg

    Use the hand to grab onto the bottom peg.
    IMG20240329165110.jpg

    Now have his other hand hold the tank cover/gun.
    IMG20240329165150.jpg

    Here's a bit of a cheat, the tank cover doesn't actually plug in the central tank, it's gun barrel just wedges there between the oval piece.
    IMG20240329165230.jpg

    Don't forget to plug the scope to finish the look.

    IMG20240329165241.jpg

    The overhead tank mode requires the central tank to be configured like this.
    IMG20240329163630.jpg

    Connect it to the tank trailer as per the usual configuration.
    IMG20240329163807.jpg

    You have to squeeze the central tank a bit to fit it in.
    IMG20240329164025.jpg

    The missile platform mode is just the same configuration for the central tank but peg it in the trailer's middle port.
    IMG20240329164201.jpg

    IMG20240329164252.jpg

    It also attaches to Optimus in the trailer hitch.

    In a weird sense, the original photo I was referring to looks more like trypticon than the one you just posted

    FYI my cobbled together cage on a rucksack stowage for Legacy United Sandstorm...
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    There's also this improvised shield - but I have the feeling PvP did it first in at least one of his review vid gallery shots!
    [​IMG]
    If only he had a couple of ports or so in his back so the cage could tab on when doing this!

    I gave Siege Prime a new backpack using Elita's guns. PXL_20240415_213555166.jpg
    I also mounted his axe on his shin, so he does not partsform. PXL_20240415_213438338.jpg
    I forgot to take any alt mode pics when I was outside. PXL_20240415_223504394.jpg

    Powerlinx between Legacy Prowl and Chromia = Batmobile 1000001427.jpg 1000001424.jpg 1000001426.jpg

    Would probably look even better with two of either, maybe for the full black look

    The chest has been done before, but decided to integrate any leg add-ons more as armor instead of a wing. Focused more on turning the second Six-Gun into an Overload-alike, with bonus shoulder turrets.

    One reason to love the odd figures that are "space" fiction types, is that most can have many ways to flip them around and get the most wonderful new spaceships or other vehicles...

    So today I took SS BB Frumble out and he is such a figure... A few minutes in and I could see a starship that feels inspired by both Star Trek and Star Wars.

    Edit: more play and here I have an anti-aircraft platform/gun...
