Yep, our resident leaker Apollux has talked about it a lot, mainly in the Kingdom threads.
These two... These two, I like.
Fan-mode for Apeface inspired by @bacems:
He's fantastic. Easily one of the best WFC figures so far. The white inner robot figure is also very cool in it's own right, and it's not just white Optimus redeco. I think the headsculpt might be the same (though I'd have to check - I don't have him out of armor at the moment) but the body type has some substantial differences.
He's so go, I'm not sure I'm going to get the Earth mode version. I mean, I probably will if it's good because I'm a big Ultra Magnus fan (who would have though, huh?), but if it's turns out to be pretty flawed I'll be happy having just the Siege version.
Yep, that's actually why I got him. I didn't really have interest in "Build-a-Magnus" but the inner white robot is fantastic. I think his head and legs are the same as Siege OP, but he has a completely different waist, torso, and arms. I'm using him as my CHUG Nova Prime.
found a lazerbeak to go with my incoming siege soundwave
I think the head is at least based off of the same basic CAD design, but UM's head has been tweaked with more aggressive cheek guards, more prominent antennae+"headphones", and some added lines here and there.
I should note that the socket in UM's head has been moved forward for... some reason. If you swapped heads between the two molds (say: giving Galaxy Upgrade's head to Voyager OP for toy-style yellow eyes), you'll find the neck articulation to be kinda funky.
Nova Prime is an interesting idea for him. A bit of repainting, an altered headsculpt, and maybe some new weapons and he'd be good Generations Selects release.
A straight redeco of Galaxy Upgrade OP would probably fit Nova Prime best
Minor/Repaint: - WFC-Siege: Nova Prime
You're right, that would be even better.
All Hail Megathrust!
I just said a LOT of cuss words wishing this was in my house lol Bout to get a migraine from wishing so hard!

I think he's a fantastic figure. One of the best WFC figures out there. At the Ross price if you can find him he's excellent value for money.
This is the first time I noticed that Siege Optimus has Gatling guns on his arms. And I own the toy. In my defence they’re usually facing the other way, but that’s a cool little fan-mod.
I'm not sure if the designers had that in mind - I guessing they didn't - but in my head-cannon they're guns too.
Had the time to tweak Optimus a little and got him a little Netflixy
It's good to see the Siege Prime mold still getting the love it deserves.
Sure, why not. The original G1 cartoon had him shoot beams out of his eyes at least once and I prefer this cannon canon over that.
