    I'd be perfect if they telescoped shorter for bot mode, very nice though.

    Looks real good. Hopefully they do some for Earthrise, too.

    I wonder if it will fit the KO slightly over-sized version of the Seige OP...

    Got my set. Looks nice. The metal tubes are a nice touch. The red color doesn't match, though.

    Mine already snapped:

    Looks like it's just the glue bond and fortunate that the 3d printed plastic didn't actually crack. Be careful as the longer stacks may interfere with transformation and posing.

    I'll fix it later by doing some light sanding on the glue surfaces and then use 5 minute epoxy.

    Finally got around to fixing it:
    Heavy/Scratch: - Various mods (of mods), custom stuff

    The glue joint is definitely weak and comes apart rather easily. Gluing over paint was a terrible idea. Anyhow, regular superglue will not handle the stresses well, so you really need 5 minute epoxy. Just use a very thin layer to avoid excess from piling up in the crevices (use a toothpick for instance). Before this, though, rough sand or file the paint off the adhesive areas on the panel and stack pieces. Clean off the sanded bits. Now the epoxy can bind well.

    I see why Hastak chose not to use longer stacks. They DO interfere with transformation. The longer SL stacks can easily interfere with transformation and cause the glue bond to break when bumping into things. Not just the top part, but the bottom of the silver stack extends below the panel. This causes problems when extends OP's arms to the sides. The stack will hit OP's forearms and then break the glue bond.

    After some sanding work, I repainted mine to better match OP's red.

    Despite all this, it does look nice when I finally fixed and repainted the set. Just have to be very careful not to hit the stacks on anything during transformation. I did buy a 2nd stack for Nemesis Prime and plan to repaint the panel black for that after sanding off the paint.
