    Sideswipe and Red Alert. All of them are earth-ish but those two could be sold as earthmode figures with no one really noticing.

    Is that an autobot sticker in place of the decepticon insignia? if so have you had any issues with it getting scrunched during transformation?

    A little bit, yeah. But it was minor and I was able to smooth it out again. I've been more careful to not open the chest past 90 degrees and it's been fine now.

    It’s very tricky to get all this in one shot and still look fairly decent. That’s a big rocket.......

    Omega Supreme I think is my favorite Titan so far, but to be fair I only have 3 of them. But I think that because I’ve wanted an Omega Supreme for 35 years now, he’s earned the title.
    5BDB3E95-06A2-40D4-93C6-9A313137EF32.jpeg
    He’s so much more stable and sturdier than Fort Max. He’s built exceptionally well. I love the new ratcheting system they used on his leg joints, very tight with more detents for posing.

    The blast effects are always welcome and I love the articulation in his big claw hand. Siege Omega is definitely the rocket base robot I’ve coveted all these years. All of the components that make this guy up are so incredibly detailed and nice pieces on their own too.
    From the gantry,

    To the track,

    To the tank,

    To the rocket,
    9F6317D0-BDB0-44DA-9523-4D01E33D6E95.jpeg
    To the base.
    9989AC91-851C-4975-BA38-099353C7F901.jpeg
    So worth it. But what I love about this beloved Siege Titan is that, probably unlike the G1 iteration, this big guy is customizable.

    Maybe much more so than any other Titan, not counting add-ons and upgrades. Omega comes with all he needs. Anything extra would just be more icing on the cake. Omega definitely reigns Supreme!

    By a stroke of luck, I found some 35th anniversary figures on my Wal-Mart run this morning and snagged Bluestreak. I couldn’t help but feel a sense of irony as I placed him next to Barricade and Prowl on my shelf.

    When Prowl was revealed last year, I had zero interest in the mold. I thought it looked mediocre and, quite frankly, terrible. I had absolutely no intention of buying it. Then I decided to buy Prowl’s figure on Amazon one day because I was in a “Eh, what the hell” sort of mood. Then I got Barricade (totally off subject/topic, but I still firmly stand on by my opinion that Barricade is a big enough character to where he deserves his own mold. I mean, his pint job makes this mold work, but seriously Hasbro?!) Now I’ve got Bluestreak. I’m amazed at how much my opinion has changed in regards to this mold in the last few months because it’s fantastic and fun to play with. I still think the feet look goofy, but that’s a nitpick I can get over.

    I'd tripple like this post if I could. You did a wonderful job of articulating everything that makes Omega such a stand out Titan, and the detail in those photos is fantastic. Love the custom mode too! Great work!

    Am I too late for some Siege Ultra Magnus action?

    IMG_20191112_160930.jpg

    I went and bought myself a Siege Ultra Magnus with a discount of 40% from another nearby hobby store, making this one I bought MYR 150 instead of the original MYR 250 at my local TRU. I rarely bought anything more expensive than a Voyager at one time, but a Siege Ultra Magnus with a discount of 40% is too good of a deal for me to pass out.

    It's just one of the independent hobby stores that I occasionally visited each week.

    For the discounted price of only MYR 150 (Around USD 36), Siege Ultra Magnus is quite a bargain to get at that kind of price and I do glad that I waited for a better deal.

    I like spinning around Barricade's guns on his arm to make the back parts into a stun gun:
