SL-73 is a LED Matrix and SL-74 is a pair of new exhaust pipes.
Who didnt see this coming ? Lol
I skipped this upgrade cause wtf a space truck needs Earth exhaust pipes for ?
Agreed. Had the pipes done more to look alien, then I'd be more excited for this.
I have both of the original versions of those kits for Siege Optimus Prime.
The LED case didn't fit properly so the head and windows hinges can't stay on flush. The LED is also bare and blinding, something Shockwave Lab will apparently never fix and is inexcusable [I took apart the kit and placed a small piece of white electrical tape over the LED to tone it down]. The Siege OP kit was however one of their first kits to actually have a properly working battery compartment (batteries that actually touched the contacts unlike their early matrix kits).
Their Siege OP exhaust pipe kits have definite issues. Since Nemesis is black, however, paint matching should actually work. The red on the OP kit didn't match at all. The longer pipes DO interfere with transformation, so need to be extra careful. This contributes to the kit breaking. The bottom part of the exhaust pipes should not have exceeded the panel length, and interferes with arm posing. The adhesive was very poorly done and the pipes easily broke off from the panels (especially when they bumped into other parts of the figure). I fixed my OP kit but shouldn't have needed to put so much effort into it.
Good to know the kits are kinda crap, was considering them for if my nemesis ever shows up. Sad to hear that shockwaves lab has gone down hill so much, I loved a lot of their earlier kits but the more recent ones (starting from their led fetish) just aren't as good
Funny. I made some 3D printable extentions kinda like these a few weeks ago.

Aw, shut up with your indisputable logic, common sense and rationale.*
*I completely agree with you.
Way to rub salt in the wounds to anyone that ordered from robot kingdom, sigh...... full month no movement due to corona sigh........
Same here dude, same here. What sucks even more is that I ordered from robotkingdom because they are usually incredibly fast (like 3-4 days to the east coast fast)
yup, i feel we got screwed
Can’t say I disagree. I understand the way and know they didn’t actually screw us over, but it doesn’t sting any less
exactly, whats worse is even local mail seems to be crawling, i ordered something on ebay on the 17th, they shipped it on the following monday and the tracking hasn’t even updated it shows tracking created but not in the system sigh....., another thing finally updated with actual tracking 5 days later
I’ll get an idea of local shipping once I ship my gt-11 Red Bull from chosen prime
hopefully it goes well for ya, and hopefully the last two seacon’s don’t hit a snag XD, be nice to at least finish his fishy majesty
This toy just reminds me of how badly I want an updated RID Scourge.
A nice option to be sure, but.. I don't really see the point in putting money into an add-on like this when they're most likely going to release a Nemesis version of the new Earth-Rise Prime who actually 'has' a built in and removable Matrix.. It looks nice at least, the sculpt is decent and the LED is plenty bright. Though, I find it's lacking in paint apps. If anything, it should have been cast in purple plastic and then given silver paint apps. But that's just my personal opinion, take it however you will.
And his matrix doesn't need to be tossed aside in truck mode. Pretty sure this one does
Yes, matrix must be removed for alt mode. For the original OP version of the kit, one of the ad pics shows the matrix in the empty area in the back of the cab. The matrix case does NOT plug into this area at all. It just loosely fits there for storage purposes.
I just bought one from Unlcebillyshop. Arrived DOA. He's telling me to replace the battery but I took it apart but I don't see how I can replace the battery without damaging the wiring. Am I not seeing something? when I bought the Siege prime version it arrive working. Me thinks someone messed up and accidently turn it on while packing killing the battery in shipping.
