Brunt + Aimless & Blowpipe
I've read about people painting them, as well as using Sharpie markers.
If I decide to go ahead with it, I'll probably get the type of spray paint that allows light to pass through. I don't recall exactly what it's called, but you can find it at all your major arts and crafts store.
I used it on several projects before.
Nonnef apparently may do a head mod but who knows. Nonnef is planning extra tracks, though.
I did a complete head mod but that requires making your own custom parts, including crystal clear visor.
Colors can still show through the yellow visor, even blue...it's just everything will have a yellow tint to it.
You can try to use transparent blue acrylic paint over the eyes. If you put a LED over the lightpiping, the eyes will light up as green, though. To access the eyes properly, you would need to take apart the head.
This is a mock-up with the yellow visor and showing the "green" eyes:
Various mods (of mods), custom stuff
This is how I took apart the head:

The full head mod is some posts after those.
Are there any differences between Takara and Hasbro version when it comes to Siege? Better paint perhaps? Because I really don't like how the white (unpainted?) plastic looks on Apeface...
Omega Supreme online. Warfare protocol initiated. Terminate Decepticons.
Quick question; has anyone else's Siege Megatron's left leg, main at the knee, become a bit weakened or not as sturdy/ tight as the right?
Not gonna lie, I like this figure more than I thought....
Totally with you on that. It's somehow lifeless and garishly glossy at the same time. I'm going to get it anyway (unless FP shows their Apeface tomorrow or something), because I want to get all the JP Headmasters cast I can. But still... Sigh...
The choice of plastic color looks really cheap. A more robust white would have looked much better.
Luckily, until the last wave of Siege is available in Poland, Hasbro will have enough time to announce some tasty repaints/remolds.
Yep I'm just going to find some light gray or match the white paint on the cockpit and use that to paint his arms and mid-section at least. That white somehow is able to look garish and boring at the same time--something I didn't even know was possible. It also just drowns out all the detailing that they sculpted into his middle. Apeface never skipped abs-day and we can't even tell!
I was hoping the same thing but nope...
So at this point, all I'll get from Wave 5 is Spinister, Ratbat set and that other Battle set that connects in vehicle mode. The money I'm saving will just go to a Seacon set I was reluctant on buying because of the price at first.
Do you think that perhaps Astrotrain was originally meant for Earthrise?
He was meant to be part of Earthrise, but Siege needed one more leader class. He’s also being reissued in Earthrise according to TFwiki
To tell you the truth, I'm also not a fan of those plain and unpainted weapons that Spinister has such a waste of a nice sculpt. Overall I'm a sucker for nice and detailed weapons in figures. And damn it we used to have such in former waves, even with deluxes like Hound or Ironhide
support your local Galaxy Force
Powerdashers so unique and fun.
I’m gonna skip Hot Shot because I’d prefer one with some sort of armored attack vehicle like the Cybertron Defense figure. But I have to admit, the WFC Hot Shot looks much nicer and more tempting than I expected.
Just received my replacement set from Hasbro Pulse, after my original set came damaged.
This is a great set: Refraktor Reconnaissance Team 3-Pack.
we just need a Generations Scattershot, Red Alert, Vector Prime, Landmine
