    Awesome lights! Wish they'd have included a height extension for the legs too, but that'd be wishful thinking.

    I want to see what it looks like in base/ship mode.

    Would be nice to also have some things that Siege Brunt doesnt do. Satellite dish, for one.

    I can only see that working by making entirely new legs, but that would be very expensive.

    Nice! Light up features and city bots go well together. This upgrade kit will be tempting if the price is right.

    Also, I display Trypticon with MT’s Utopia so no worries about platform foot upgrades.

    I appreciate that someone is finally considering mods for Trypticon but this is NOT the mod we need.

    We need fixes for the hip and tail ratchets. I wouldn' t mind updated arms with bicep and wrist swivle or a full set of filler pieces for all the hollow bits. OR, this lighting set could have been a proper Brunt. Update the chest bracket and have a proper Brunt cannon and have the other parts store inside the chest and mouth to provide the same lighting as this set.

    missed opprotunity if you ask me.

    This is a cool kit, but yes we do need more kits for hips, the tail and the wrists!

    Make 2 plates per leg that would extend the bottom legg. Like a super long ankle.

    we definitely need a wrist swivel since that would make him perfect in my book.
