    I've got the same problem. Got Siege Sideswipe, Siege Red Alert, and Earthrise Grapple in my cart ready to go. The only thing stopping me from ordering is the hope that a set for Earthrise Wheeljack will drop soon with some blue cel shaded windows to make him pop. We'll see how much longer I can hold out...

    They’ve been doing the weekly drop and with the whole points thing, I’ve decided to do a “3 in cart” minimum.

    I was perfectly fine using Trenchfoot as Pinpointer, but this is much better. FF482B12-1A78-4B5D-B3A8-B1D12C92363E.jpeg

    Getting a tidy stash of effects pieces, they’ll need their own little tub soon.

    I want more flame pieces dammit! The Dazzlestrike one. D5471C97-7B76-4038-98D7-F16CB04423A9.jpeg

    update:

    Removed the ramp supports to give it a more G1 styled ramp.....they don't "connect" where the ramp hits the floor part, they are merely pushed up against each other, but it still works I suppose.

    I’m not interested in stickers, but would like to know which if any 3p extra parts (guns, fillers, etc) you all consider essential?

    Definitely wouldn’t have bought the regular one if I’d seen this one coming. Going to see about getting the splotches off his crotch(eew), but other than that he’s pretty excellent! My favourite Voyager Megatron by far.

    You can tell he’s evil by the colour of his swooshes. :D  37E46230-4A91-4D15-AD1E-87ABF29604B9.jpeg BC6DDAF9-CB86-41E3-97B9-548C0FF90F17.jpeg
    Oops, guess I got carried away in my excitement! I only had G1 Pointblank as a kid so I probably jumped there in my head.

    The Netflix sets were spotted here in Calgary Walmart’s yesterday. I grabbed mine today while looking for some basics. Which I was more surprised to find than the toys!

    Netflix Megatron and Hotlink starting to pop up at Walmarts, though I'd only heard about Canadian sightings.

    TFSafari posted some upgrade sets, all 3d printed.

    Astrotrain from Matrix Workshop:

    Spinister from Ratchet Studios:
    Ratchet Studio ROS-011 Gap Fillers & Hand Blades for Siege Spinister Upgrade Kit
    Looks like you will need to paint the blades and gap fillers (black parts) if you want them to match.

    Cool. Don't live too far from the border to Canada but not going to cross now for obvious reasons.

    Wow that spinister set is pretty bad. Ratchet studios usually does a nice job. Probably the first set, for a figure I own, from them that I’m gonna decline.

    I don't know if I would consider any of the kits 'essential'. That being said, Gap Fillers for the Ironhide/Ratchet/Crosshairs mould really do improve those figures. I'm still debating pulling the trigger on fillers for Impactor, from what I've seen this figure also really benefits.

    Other worthies are the arm filler kits for Soundwave and the filler kit for Magnus (mine is still in the mail so I'll know better in a few months, hopefully).

    As far as weapons go: Prowl shoulder missiles. Sideswipe rifle and Red alert shoulder missle.

    These of course just my opinions

    Thanks. Should have asked but didn’t - do the effect transformation? Is there a company you prefer?

    No worries.

    I only really consider things that don't effect transformation, all the included leg extenders, for instance, I have completely ignored for this reason.

    I have gone for Ratchet Operating Studios kits so far due to price and availability in my market. There are a few nice printable on thingiverse where I got my Soundwave arm fillers and some of the weapons. Honestly though your own tastes should dictate what you think looks best.

    If you are in Europe or North America check out TFsafari, they've got a great range. I have to stick to ebay sellers unfortunately.

    I'm totally using the Hot Rod portion as my Rodimus.
