    Spinister was one of two semi-late Christmas gifts I just received and he is ever so delightful. Proportions, color scheme, articulation, transformation, it all just comes together to make a grade-A figure. Definitely a highlight of the Siege line for me.

    My Bluestreak has the same exact issue out of the box. I used contact cement to glue it in place.

    Did you paint the eyes? Maybe it’s just me but they look red.

    Spending the morning cleaning up and thought I would share how I store my boxes.
    1. I keep the background thing inside the packaging.
    2. I then take those and pack them away along with the instructions into the Skywarp Phantom Strike Patrol box.
    3. I open and cut away half of the boxes, leaving behind the back and side (which has the black light effect and character art.)
    4. I then take those, along with the Skywarp box and pack them inside Jetfire's box.
    5. That, in turn, has gone into a black storrage box where I also keep the MP Prowl american box (which is way too big). I have another tub filled with my MP boxes and my non-siege CHUG boxes/instructions (which are broken down and packed similarly).

    Why do I think this goes in the appreciation thread? Because I really like the box art and black light effect and am saving that part. I eventually want to make a picture frame (or two) as a kind of poster of the box art (autobots and cons).

    Here is an example of the waste I am tossing.

    Everything I have from Siege, except for Ratbat and "Frenzy" who are on they way from China via Ebay.

    My son set up a little battle and asked me to take a picture. He received Omega for Christmas.

    It sucks but since i switched the base configuration theirs no more issues. Only negative about this line as a whole is quality control

    Wow, I really love my new toy. This diorama set is great for pics. The lighting options it has combined with my photo filters on my phone have a really dramatic, moody effect. I’m still playing around with it, sorry if they’re not all good. Still in the experimental stage, but check out Crosshairs (who really is a badass with that shoulder mounted missile launcher. This will be my standard configuration for him.)

    My autobot targetmasters are vastly outnumbered. These guys are simple and cheap, but I've had fun switching a few parts around.

    Now that I've acquired Trenchfoot, that may be how I pose him in 'bot mode with his original gun. Thanks for the idea. :thumb

    What really sold me on Astrotrain was that his feet lock in unlike a certain other triple changing autobot.

    Helpful tip, kinda hard to see in my pic. Cut off the stock of the launcher. Makes it a lot less cumbersome and more aesthetically pleasing in either mode.

    Nice custom. What did you do with the extra Ratbat?

    Nothing yet, but as there is a blue version of him (Shattered glass) he may very well be one of the next ones I do.
