    Several new weapons / accessories kits by Matrix Workshop got announced for various Siege figures:

    Barricade and Smokescreen: 【Incoming】Matrix Workshop M18 M-18 WFC Siege Barricade / Smokescreen Weapon Set Upgrade Kit
    Impactor: 【Incoming】Matrix Workshop M19 M-19 WFC Siege Deluxe Impactor Weapon Set Upgrade Kit
    Mirage: 【Incoming】Matrix Workshop M20 M-20 WFC Siege Deluxe Mirage Weapon Set Upgrade Kit
    Ratchet (14 items total): 【Incoming】Matrix Workshop M21 M-21 WFC Siege Deluxe Ratchet Weapon Set Upgrade Kit

    Buyer beware, though, Matrix Workshop (unless they finally fixed it) has a problem with oversized pegs (5.3mm oval instead of 5mm circle). Use a precision file to fix to avoid breaking something. I had a ridiculous time trying to fix their blasted Ironhide kit (got it for "free", but still):
    Various mods (of mods), custom stuff

    I may end up getting the Barricade kit.

    He was like $35 on BBTS for months. Picked him up for that last year some time. He's perfect CHUG voyager scale.

    I'm always in to looking for better weapons for figures, and found this old movie Mechtech cannon that, when glued into the extended position and painted, looks pretty darn perfect for Ironhide...

    It's worth mentioning that they have some items on sale. I ordered their Red Alert kit.

    I wish that Matrix Workshop kit had included leg fillers for Impactor, but that is a nice looking pistol and drill-bit.

    For me, these two just gravitate towards each other. Springer and Magnus have been two of the most pleasant surprises that Siege has given. Two bots I didn't really want an update for, whose new versions I just can't put down.
    I suppose, begrudgingly, this gives me some hope for 'Earth Starscream'
