    I love your photos. The filters are awesome.
    I got Red Alert for $13 on WalMart a few days ago.
    Awesome.

    I have to get a Sideswipe! Lol.

    I was messing with Shockwaves vehicle mode and I realized I was missing a pin on one of his extra bits after a piece fell off.

    Missing: A2337F53-34FD-4C3D-BD9C-45DEB98249CE.jpeg

    Other side: D6831B33-FEB1-45C7-BC4D-8E1C0B4197F0.jpeg The piece stays in pretty well because of friction but I’m not sure if I should contact Hasbro about it. Any ideas?

    I just realized how incredibly tiny and out of scale the dinobots are...

    Another null ray option for Seekers:
    【Incoming】GX-03 Null Rays for WFC Siege Decepticon Seekers (Starscream / Skywarp / Thunder Cracker) Weapon Set

    I'm intrigued by how they can also plug in underneath the nosecone area (looks like there's an extra fin-tab that does the trick). Main negative is that you only have two color options: white and black. As someone who has tried to paint custom tailfin pieces in Seekers colors, this is going to be very annoying for any Seeker not named Red Wing.

    Not sure if Blast Effects compatible or not yet.

    Just find a nail cut it down so it is short enough to go all the way in and just stick it in there you don't need to do any contact

    I realised that when i took the pictures in my opinion Grimlock snarl and Sludge need to be leader class and Slag and swoop need to be tall voyagers

    When they first came out, that was a pretty common wish. They're decent figures, just not big enough.

    Having got UM and rather liked him I am now thinking I'm going to get GU Prime. I'm not really bothered too much about duplicates though I kind of like the idea of treating Galaxy Prime as Sentinel Prime wearing the Apex Armor, inspired in part by the 2005 IDW continuity Sentinel Prime and the Voyager Prime as a pre Prime version of Optimus.
    Honestly at some point I might try and make a Sentinel Prime custom of the Galaxy Upgrade Prime mold, though I'm a long way off being able to pull something like that off.

    The Perfect Effect kit helps a little to bulk up Grimlock and make him taller. Otherwise, the only big official big option would be MP Grimlock. Even without any mods, the POTP Dinobots do fit the Siege aesthetic.

    Here's my newest pic of my shelf. Siege is so good but I have some issues with Skywarp I'd like help with figuring out. His left wing, when facing the nosecone in vehicle mode, won't fold down all the way. I have pics if they help 20190908_164254.jpg

    Does anyone know of a cartoon head for Siege Prime? He's such a good fig but the head is off for me.

    My plan for a custom would be to have the inner bot be orange and the 'Apex Armour' be more white and black with a smidge of gold/pale orange, like in the IDW 2005 comics:

    Ahaha that last pic :'D
