HERE'S SOME MORE "AFTER" PICS......
He use to be about a head taller than the average Siege deluxe (Sideswipe and Prowl) and now he's about 1.5 head's taller.
care to share a pic of the vehicle mode with the thigh extensions?
The thigh extensions won’t let it transform, you have to remove them from one mode to the other.
Got them! He just re-upped.
Nice, glad you were able to get a set. I really like them and they make the vehicle mode look so much better
Damn figure just upgraded with these and the feet, articulated hands, all you need is upgraded tires and this is a high-end figure.

Ultra Magnus ($12.99):
[Pre-Order] Dr.Wu DW-P46 Gap Fillers for Siege Ultra Magnus (Voyage Class) Upgrade Kit.
Thanks for the tip on the eBay seller!
Normally, I'm quite hesitant to trust Asian sites or ebay sellers, but after reading this thread I think I might try yall out sometime.
The store is legit. I got my filler very quick and add some much to the figure.
I’ll second them.
Had one of my forearm fillers break on install and they’re sending another forearm part with my next order.
Awesome customer service.
If the dr wu Magnus kit is on the shelf already why isn’t it shipping till late June?
Read what happened to ya. One of the reasons I wanna trust em. But there's also a couple other problems I have. Both not on them.
I have poor control over my wallet, and I never bought a siege Ironhide because I never knew when a filler set would exist yet, and I was adamant on not getting one until they did. (and for cheaper than retail)
I got the Tim Heada Soundwave filler kit yesterday from TF Safari. I have some acrylic paints laying around but nothing that matched colors exactly, so I just went with the closest colors I had. The blue painted pieces are still drying but I installed the grey painted ones. Despite not being the same grey I'm pretty happy with how they look. All the pieces fit well and I think Soundwave looks a lot better with the gaping forearm cavities covered up.
I got my Soundwave Gap fillers too - I intend to get the Shockwave's Lab ones as well as I like the idea of the shoulder extenders to allow for Cassette player mode - so if you are interested in that remember to leave the shoulder gap fillers out on the one TFSafari sells out - otherwise the SL ones have no place to slot into.
It's a shame the Armoury ; Transforming Ironhide Feet on eBay are so costly as they look the bees knees - simply rotating the toes make a lot of difference - the ideal set would combine that rotation with a toe tilt (or even forward and back moving ankles) too. That would have been better as part of a broader kit I think. There might even be an argument to see a vehicle mode gap filler of some sort - especially if it can do something else like wrap around the hammer/launcher or fit on his back or turn into a shield.
Leader Shockwave hopefully will get a clear tint sighting piece one day as it's lack is a bit obvious for the upside down "ship mode".
Hopefully someone will master the clear flexible material and make some baggies full of effects parts sometime too, those would be useful to have.
Got the Magnus thigh extensions in from tfsafari.
Initially I thought they made him a bit too tall, but it actually worked out well.
The only thing I wish the designer had taken the alt mode into account more and added a hinged flap on the sides that could fold out and cover that gap behind the front wheels. Might have made Magnus’ hips a little big though.
Is the contrast between the whites of the thigh extensions and UM’s legs that noticeable or is that the flash / lighting making it seem that way?
It’s not quite as bad as it is in the pics but it is noticeable. The extensions are more of a pure white in comparison to the cream color of UM’s white.
