    For what it is, the "White-Optimus" core inner figure from Siege Ultra Magnus isn't too bad at all. For such a blocky looking robot, it does looks quite cool and the articulation isn't too bad either.

    Another thing is, I love the headsculpt on this inner core robot and it's pretty well painted for what it is.

    What I did was paint white on those areas. Most of the red was in the sculpted lines and I wiped away the rest. I did have to paint the leg rectangles and that detail on the foot all white though, but it was worth it.

    Not quite feeling the, um, weapons mode (upside down truck) of Power Punch and Direct Hit. Otherwise, they're fine for being micromasters and their combination mode works when the vehicle is upright. Tried to put on as many blast effects as I could:

    Scale can be interesting. The 'Praxian' car modes seem quite small.

    Nice to see that someone else appreciates Magnus' inner bot figure. I've been displaying him like that for a little while now and I'm really liking it.

    I agree about the weapons mode. Actually, I don't care for any of the weapon modes for the vehicle micromasters, although I do like the figures themselves.

    I love the Micromasters but yeah, most of the weapons modes are a little too "Armada Mini-Cons" for me. I appreciate the effort though and for the size, most are really nice!

    I have the figure, it's all white and black... but maybe I should have put it in terms of the layout. His thighs, biceps, and midriff should have been grey; the way the colors were broken up in the G1 version (I know, I know, but bear with me) were actually far more visually appealing. Black makes everything look slimmer so using black for his already-skinny thighs in particular was a bad choice.

    Top Shot and Flak (as well as their 10-pack repaints) make pretty decent weapons. But the rest I keep in bot modes. With the exception of the cassettes.

    If there was only one figure I would have gotten from this line this would have been it. Day he was announced it was a must have.

    Looking at Apeface, I question how much of the battle damage paint can be cleaned off, I can't tell what's a painted surface or what the point of separation might be

    When armored up with the Magnus Armor parts, Siege Ultra Magnus looks quite impressive despite been a bit on the blocky side in terms of aesthetic.

    Also, I love this full "Ultra Magnus" mode headsculpt, and the plastic all over this figure is pretty good in terms of quality. I got mine for only USD 36, and it's worth every single penny.

    Howdy, Siege Appreciators! I've created an add-on part that I'd like to share with you all.

    I created some tiny 3D-printed pieces to add a detail I thought was missing from Siege Six-Gun. These small fins for the upper legs are meant to homage the details from the original G1 toy and animation model.

    Visit my thread in Radicons for links to the STL download on Thingiverse or to purchase via Shapeways: Minor/Repaint: - Siege Six-Gun: Leg Accent Fins

    Is it just me, or is Six Gun shelfwarming? When I visit stores, there's usually at least three of him and nothing else.

    I read somewhere that he’s part of the latest wave case assortment, so you’ll see plenty of him on the shelves again

    Mirage's weapon also has a hammer mode. 20191113_233503.jpg

    This is way these guys are my favorite Micromasters. All those ports for blast effects. 20191113_020003.jpg
