    Electrical tape (avoid getting on mask to avoid stripping paint). I used a spare LED that would have been used to illuminate an arcade stick button. It had its own small plastic housing (similarly, small strips of electrical tape could work too) for the LED to avoid illuminating behind his head or to the sides. There was a small coin cell battery dangling off the back (I can't remember now if it was a button or coin cell). If you have very thin wires, you could also potentially hide the batteries where Jetfire's head goes into the backpack.

    I did think of eventually taking apart his head and then see if I can install a custom LED setup. I can look into that after I finish my Predaking purple LED saber.

    I don't think I've had to source figures from so many different retailers for any previous line. Finally got this pair through today and they're lovely enough but not without their quirks.

    Obviously, they're more articulated than their old school counterparts but - like some of the other new Micromasters - they're often shorter. Powertrain is a bit too orange, whereas Highjump has gone from almost vestigial arms to these lanky things. At least he is able to stand unaided, unlike his old iteration.

    The proportions on the alt modes just aren't as nice either. Highjump's wheels are comically small and Powertrain's cab is a tad squat and squished.

    Still, they are recognisable as characters. I'll probably grow to like them, the poseable little bastards.

    Very beautiful ,I could buy him as only SIEGE seeker but battle damage on lowest legs seems more they're covered by dirty oil,what a pity,anyway still remains the most beautiful with that red. It's one of cases where damage battle has ruined more a figure,for me.

    You won't regret it!

    I know stupid question and I haven't checked on youtube but in order to swap heads with Starscream and Redwing, you have to first unscrew the screw at the lightpiping right?

    Got my Skywarp in, so now my Siege Seeker collection is complete (until they decide to do the Coneheads and the Welcoming Committee.)

    The Armada Starscream's style colors works well for this figure, and the headsculpt is so fun and full of character. Not gonna swap the head with my Starscream, however.
