    well technically two kits. there's black wheel covers but you can't see them in this angle.
    the kit comes with a white rifle too but i kinda prefer the one he originally comes with.

    Not sure where this post should go as it involves a Netflix figure (Red Alert) based on a Siege mold, and an Earthrise figure (Sunstreaker). Probably doesn't matter...

    ... Anyway. I ordered the lambo weapons upgrade kit from Nonnef for Red Alert. It requires a bit of trimming to get the missile launcher to fit (first time I've encountered that with a Nonnef product, but my previous items utilised the round 5mm pegs, and this is a rectangular peg). The missile was also a very tight fit (so I did a bit more trimming) but it's worked out pretty well.

    I realise the missile colour is perhaps not traditional for Red Alert (I think it's usually red) but the colour choice requires the missile and gun to be the same colour.

    As I'm happy with the gun Red Alert's came with (which has an extra port for a 'blade' and thus doubles as a staff for a pick axe type weapon) I had decided to use the Nonnef gun with another character, (Sunstreaker) so I picked a colour that would fit both. Black pretty much goes with anything. PXL_20210127_134819879~2.jpg PXL_20210127_134426059~2.jpg

    Here they are. The gun styles are similar, although the Nonnef gun is smaller. I think it fits Sunstreaker okay, and Red Alert's new missile launcher works a treat.

    Yeah, Streaker needs a gun. I gave him RunAmuk’s gun and let RunAmuk have one of RunAbout’s since he came with 2.

    It kind of made sense SunStreaker would get his gun since he has his disarming good looks :D .

    Didn't particularly like the "Sandstorm" name for the G2 Decepticon Seeker, so I gave him dual null rays and a couple rocket launchers and call him "Hailfire" instead.

    Not sure if this is the right place, but anyone have an extra NETFLIX Bumblebee for a reasonable price? My pre-order from WALMART has been pending since about 4 days after the order and when I talked to customer service they said, cancel and reorder, but yeah, like out of stock and stuff. And my local Walmarts treat this stuff like a bad thing they don't want to carry. Any info would be great.

    I went with Desert Storm as well. Have seen a few good nicknames for him on here (Dust Storm was another good one).

    Other headcanon names in my collection: I have both the black and white versions of GoBot Crasher, so I named the white one Burner (crash and burn).

    I actually thought about "Hail Storm" to go with the "storm" theme, too.

    Nice work. The yellows match so well, you can’t tell that they are different.

    This reminds me of Twisted Toyfare Theatre (basically comic Robot Chicken, made by the same people). Spiderman would often be eating from a bag of Lays.
