    I've searched internet and found it.
    How it looks like when disassembled.
    After i saw that, i know what to do.

    Already painted it.
    It's drying at the moment.
    I'll post picture when it's assembled again.

    Thanks

    Because there is a chance that you'll or i'll in this case will touch the sides.
    Open it and paint it, will be very nice and clean.

    I've already painted it.
    You'll see the result in a few days.

    What kind of paint did you use?

    I need a couple more Reflectors. Trypticon needs more towers.

    Anyone else using the thrilling 30 Springer weapons on Siege Springer?

    Works better than the weapons he comes with in my opinion

    Was your right ear really glued on and not just tight? That's the first I've heard of that.

    Some people want to paint the eyes because the lightpiping was very poorly done (the shade of blue is too dark for lightpiping, window in back of head and blocked by backpack). The lightpiping plastic is recessed behind the mask, so there's a very high chance of painting the mask.

    One could stick a LED behind the lightpiping window to get the eyes to light up and looks pretty cool when the mask is over it at the same time. This may still kinda work even if you paint over the eyes depending on how bright the LED is and what paint(s) are used.

    I modded mine to have a complete LED circuit inside:
    Various mods (of mods), custom stuff

    I use the stock pistols, but the T30 blade/rotor. Looks so much better than those little stock ones.
    I just wish his wrists bent down so he could wield the sword properly.

    As big as Siege Skyfire is, I think there’s still room in my collection for T30 Jetfire too.

    I’d like to think of these now as two separate characters. The Siege figure will be Skyfire, as he should be. And the T30 figure will be Jetfire, because....ya know.....he obviously more closely resembles an Earth jet. I’m thinking of head-canoning him as a clone of Skyfire that Wheeljack created and updated with Earth technology. Obviously wouldn’t work in Siege since the Transformers haven’t made it to Earth yet, it’s a work in progress. But I think these two can still work together.

    Interesting. I rarely think about G2 since I wasn’t really collecting much during that time. I did have one of the Cyberjets, Space Case, but I don’t recall seeing R-Blade at all during that period. Cool, cool!
