    I've loved Siege so far, but I'm having serious buyer's remorse on a couple of the exclusives. Soundblaster, the Micromaster set, and Star Convoy (I realise not Siege), just none of these have been worth the money. The Micromaster set is the biggest letdown, my own fault really - i didn't pay much attention to what was in it. I assumed it would contain the other halves of the existing teams we've had already. Soundblaster is lovely, but for the £50 i paid to have him imported i don't feel like he was worth it. Star Convoy, while he looks quite nice I forgot about the limitations of the POTP Optimus mold. Apart from this I've loved every other figure, the other exclusives I picked up - Bluestreak and Smokescreen are spot on.

    Oh wow, when I tried that I couldn’t get it to fit. I guess I need to finesse it a bit? Awesome find!

    They're Tim Heada's from TF Safari, you have to paint 'em yourself. I used GSI Creos Mr. Hobby Aqueous Hobby Color Yellow.

    What kind of paint pens did you use for this? I’m wanting to detail my Ratchet and I’m curious about how thick of a line people are using.

    I use a couple of brands of paint pens, but mostly Testors acrylic paint markers and Elmer's Painters pens. I even use them for most of my panel lining, just wipe off the excess paint with a rag and again with a magic eraser for any smudges.

    I received the gap fillers I ordered for the Impactors. I really hate how hollow they were. This is the Rachet Studios ROS-008. I got them from TFSafari. I like the gray better than the yellow for the filler.

    For white it is better to just use a mechanical pencil (i use a .3). Black can be too much.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but. the large gun that came with Magnus (the large silver one) is incredibly loose he can't hold it without it flopping around how do i fix it?

    For panel lining white figures, I would recommend a gray fine tip Gundam marker. Pencil would be more forgiving, though.

    Get Some Super Glue, and apply a very small amount. Spread it across the handle.
    Wait 30 minutes or so, and place on Magnus hand.

    Get some floor polish like Pledge, it's the go-to.

    I wouldn't use super glue, as some variants in chemical composition (depending on brand) can damage the plastic, and can end up permanent, and I find that it can rough up the plastic and leaves a icky film on the plastic, plus I'm always worried of a tiny pocket that will end up gluing the parts together for good..

    With the Pledge, just add a thin layer (it's very liquid), let it dry (usually overnight), repeat if/as needed. It's strong enough to last a while, but can be removed and redone as needed. I transferred some to a small drip bottle and I just touch the tip to transfer a "coat" or use a cotton swab (Q-tip) to gently coat a layer.

    And if you have joints that are loose, you can drip a drop in it, and let it dry and the joint is like new, stiff but not overly (as in so stuck that you'd feel that you could break something).

    I agree with your assessment except for Megatron. His tank form is pretty similar to an Earth one.
