I'd say those two are the only factions I'd consider replacing.
TR Bee is my preferred Bee And I have the Netflix bee
if he had slightly more G1 arms I'd 100% agree. I know you can partsform them around to get that effect, but blech.
Really wish they'd done a CJ from that mold. Was expecting them to do more Throttlebot remolds after they did the one, and that didn't happen either.
I display CW, TR, POTP, Siege, Earthrise, Kingdom all on the same shelves, intermixed.
I've got Classics - Earthrise. (no Kingdom figures yet but so far probably only getting Huffer and Inferno - no knock on the BW guys, just have to draw the line somewhere) I have no problems intermixing them except Siege and it's overdone greeblies and smeared "battle damage" paint really stands out.
I just go close enough and put them all together, scale is a lie anyway.
My mini bots all have weapons that aren't included with them (3rd Party upgrades)
And I painted my insecticons to look more G1.
Which Soundwave is that? Siege with custom paint? He looks great.
Also do you have a thread with the Insecticons painting process?
thanks. it's Siege Soundwave, after I scraped off the cracks on his chest with a push pin needle, and added some stronger reds to his guns and eyes. Extra silver on the shoulders, and maybe painted the cassette door trim more gold, I forget.
No thread for the Insecticons. I used Molotov Chrome pen to chrome up the back bits, black gundam marker for Kickback's limbs, I forget what I did for Shrapnel's thighs... maybe a silver sharpie or gundam marker. The yellow chests was the hard part, as yellow is the hardest color to paint. I used cheap arts and crafts yellow paint from Michaels store, thinned with Future Floor polish (milk texture) and applied super thin coat of paint, let it dry for a few hours to a day, then did another coat, same process again.
Wow that's a lot of work, they look great though
