    Standing out amongst the crowd, Aragon is an unexpected treat. Repaint and slight retool he may be, but just the fact we're getting updated Powerdashers is absolutely mental.

    So after playing with Jetfire he is everything I wanted in him! he looks just like the toon witch I love G1! The only complaint I have is I wish he was about 2-3 ins smaller! He just looks so out of place next to the rest of the siege line! I know he was a big boy in the toon. But he is just a tad to big with the line! I can see him being taller then UM. Where the top of UM arms would touch just above JFs Autobot symbol on his chest Other then that I love everything else about him! Def worth the 45 bucks I got him for! He is worth the full 79 bucks!

    I need to ask - what stands would you recommend for displaying the Siege line? Would Tamashii Stage Figure Stand Act.5 work with all the pegs or anything?

    These are the ones I use. 3mm is the most common size on Siege. Some use 5mm. Jetfire uses 6mm (ugh).

    I wish stands would list which size pegs they have. Otherwise, you have to rely on what other people who buy them say.

    Bandai action base 4 is the best all-in-one solution I have. A local hobby store here sells them in the clear version. Has 3mm and 5mm pegs, so compatible with 99% of Siege figures (Jetfire’s 6mm port is the oddball one that I doubt any stand has an adapter for; Omega Supreme has no stand ports and can't imagine any stand that would support him outside of infant bouncy sets). Also has crotch holders and clamp holders (some figure's ports are in awkward positions, so these help). Has 1 arm for lighter / smaller objects and 2 support arms that combine for one stable arm for a variety of positions. Has 3 smaller hexagon base plates for the arms to plug into. You don't have to use all 3 base plates.

    Main negatives: It's like a mini Gundam kit. You have to cut everything off sprues and assemble. Can take some time. If using support arms separately, they use different base plate tabs that are not stable, so it is difficult getting 3 figures on at once (unless the arms are pointed straight up with center of gravity right over it).

    I have Bandai action base 5 (bigger base plate) but has one arm, only 3mm pegs, and crotch holders.

    DX9 flight stands (3rd party company; comes with some of their toys but some places sell them separately too) have a 3mm peg. Small with limited positioning.

    NECA stands are meant for action figures and have a clamp at the end. However, at the base of the clamp is a 5mm compatible peg (it's hexagon shaped but does not actually fit hexagon holes well; fits 5mm circular ports well, though).

    Random question. Are there any 1:35-ish human/alien figures currently available to display with Siege figures? Other than LEGO or Fortnight figures. :< Those don't particularly interest me at all.

    Should have Nightbird and Zetar by next weekend, but here’s my current Siege crew in the meantime. I wanted to include the figures and sets that were completed by Siege, like the Targetmaster partners and Elita Infinite(No Orthia, I don’t have Lancer yet), but I’ve no room for Trypticon, Metroplex and Max to stand with Brunt, Six-Gun and Cog. I’ll do the City-Bots later.

    I thought I loved Prime Wars but WFC Trilogy is off to a great start! E974D13C-6C70-4769-9ED6-7DEB45106992.jpeg

    These must be my favorite Siege Cons cause I like it when they're all together.
