    I think swapping the torso piece would be too much. Me personally, I would swap forearms and paint the bottom of the torso piece or “the belt” black. So in a way you’re keeping some lavender.

    This was a difficult picture to take because of Omega's and Superion's size differences, but worth it!

    The store I saw them at is usually more expensive than some others. Deluxes are 639 Taiwan Dollars or a bit cheaper.
    Check XE: Convert TWD/CAD. Taiwan New Dollar to Canada Dollar for currency exchange.

    A brilliant gift set would be one with all the weaponisers done in matching colours.

    Picked up Springer today. He’s pretty great but those ankles man... terrible. Any tips for strengthening them?

    Anyone know how to open Jetfire's head?
    I like to paint his eyes blue.

    This should be a good size comparison with Skyfire and Devastator imo.

    His right “ear” is a screw cover. Remove the screw. Pop head open carefully. Iirc its the only screw.

    I concur about TR Blaster being too big. If you want a Blaster to go with Siege, there is also the Fall of Cybertron version. He's still a bit big, but it's closer to the right size and aesthetic (being a Cybetronian form). Still not the right look, but he works ok, and I really like his alt mode. Here's a picture with Siege Optimus and Ultra Magnus (not a good quality photo, but enough to give an idea). Honestly though, I would wait and see if one of the upcoming WfC waves has a Siege-style Blaster. That's what I'm hoping for.

    That's all of them for now. There's an Earth Starscream coming out, but no more tetra jets announced. I still hope for a tetrajet Slipstream, but that may be in vain. :(

    i got his right ear out with lots of effort. Because it's glued together.
    How about his left ear, do i have to remove that one too?
    Because i can't get it open now.

    No. Left ear is not removable. Heres a tutorial posted a few pages back.

    This may be a silly question, but why do you need to open the head to do that? Why not paint over them from the outside?

    Here is Omega with the Titan's Return Fort Max:

    Siege Omega + TR Fort Max 1.JPG

    They're not in G1 scale with each other, but a properly scaled Fortress Maximus would be impractical.
