    lol

    Animators make mistakes. There are a ton of color mistakes in the G1 cartoon. Hasbro has been pretty consistent with Rumble being red ever since his very first release. Hasbro seems to know they messed up in the cartoon & have been sticking with the original toy. Which is very rare in this day of "CARTOON ACCURACY IS GOD & EVERYTHING ELSE SUCKS". You have your stupid goofy looking coneheads & dumb looking human faces on Tracks, Trailbreaker, Omega Supreme, Jetfire, Bumblebee & a ton of others for cartoon accuracy, can't the few of us that prefer toy accuracy have at least one? Isn't it bad enough the cartoon ruined so many badass looking characters by giving them goofy baby Gobot human faces?

    My Impactor killed Big Powered and stole his Shockwave Lab's third party Z-sword and cannon leg fillers. :eek: :p

    I can't wait for a Rumble or Buzzsaw added to the team.

    So, I un-boxed some of my Siege stuff today and wow! This line is a huge step-up from Power of The Primes and Titans Return. The figures feels nice to transform and mess around with and don't suffer too much from stress marks that has plague most TF line's in the last few years for me. I do agree some of the figures are a little on the small side for the price but I personally don't mind as it takes up less shelf space. If I have draws backs to say it, would be I don't care for the heavy use of clear plastic on some figures like Prowl and Mirage due to it can break very easy and the paint could have been a little better on some figures. But so far for me, this line is a huge step in the right direction.

    I recently got both the Red Alert and Ironhide kits, and only had to do some very light sanding/filing to make the pegs fit.

    Since they are 3D printed, I didn’t mind so much. I would suggest that anyone who doesn’t mind a small amount of sanding not be afraid to buy.

    Tolerance for imperfections will vary, I suppose.

    I like how over the top they are and give off a G2 Sideswipe feel. It also reminds me of how Cliffjumper had his oversized cannon. I do not follow much of the 'lore' of Transformers. Sideswipe just strikes me as a character who, when asked/told that we are going to have a big last-stand kind of battle (Siege), that he wpuld look at those guns and say, "Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Hey, Magnus, you gonna use those or are they just for decoration?"

    Just finished building my "Base Jabber" style flight carrier/hoverboard unit MOC (Inspired by the Base Jabber MS flight/carrier unit from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam) for my Autobots carbots here.

    With most of the Autobots unable to fly, this unit here may possibly be a solution.

    0.3mm is rather large in terms of peg variance. Even 0.1mm would be too tight, but 0.3mm is enough to cause stress marks or even break thin walled ports...let alone break the peg. PLA also sands almost too easily, so yeah, if you sand a "small amount", you can get them to fit and hopefully you won't oversand and get the opposite problem.

    Their pegs are really ovals too. I guess the main point is that I shouldn't have to do anything just to get stuff to work out of the box.
