    Figuring this is the best ways to get eyeballs on a relevant question:

    Is there an easy fix to address loose shoulder holes in the siege seeker mold? 2 of my 3 rainmakers have some issues with keeping their guns in place snugly when they're plugged in the shoulders. Acid Storm mostly fits, just has some slack if the guns are knocked/rotated away from straight along the arm, and is better/worse if you switch around which gun goes in which shoulder. But the one I'm concerned with is Ion Storm, who is so loose that he can't have the guns in his shoulders at all without them flopping around.

    I'd have almost preferred too tight just because gentle sanding isn't an issue, but I'm not sure how to handle this without doing something drastic like gluing the guns in (which is 100% off the table)

    Just got my Siege Mirage from Amazon and OH BOY do I LIKE this figure!!! Sucks I dont have more time to fiddle with him until later tonight. Cromar arrived today also and clown face aside.....he looks really dang good too. Really wishing Siege could have been extended another year, not just another wave.

    Drop a little floor polish in the gun port. Once it dries it will create the needed friction to hold the guns in place.

    is it the gun handles that are too small or the ports that are too big? you could use floor polish or clear nail polish. i opted for using the nonnef null rays which all seem to fit well (my rainmakers had loose stock guns as well) so i suspect that the mold variance is on the guns and not the ports

    God I love this dude. Really hoping that ER does more non-g1 characters.

    Out of curiosity for anyone with this mold, did yours have balance issues?

    So jealous of all those human figs I'll never be able to afford. :( 
    "Ninja forks"???
    I have that problem with the left arm on both Skywarp and Thundercraker.
    British slang is the reason we now have a dinobot with a stupid name that is no longer perfectly matched to his function... :mad:

    Seeing all this talk of bios and recent posts by @barry in particular, I'm reminded that I still have my copy of Transformers Universe Vol. One, which was written by Budiansky. Do you guys remember that book?

    Finally got around to painting and assembling the Tim Heada kit I bought for Refraktor(s).

    Everything fits together super tight, like to within the width of an atom, but it really completes the camera mode and helps differentiate the trio in their bot modes.

    Worth it if you're okay with a bit of customising ;)

    Remember Predaking's bio getting the vaunted line "NO KNOWN WEAKNESSES."

    Megatron realizes that today wasn't the best day for him to go to the front lines. I realize that I don't have a background big enough to photograph Omega Supreme on, so I just slapped two pieces of foam board together. I'll have to get something proper rigged up in the future.
