    That looks really nice. I just got my Aragon from BBTS, and haven't combined him with anyone else yet. I notice that he is MUCH more functional than Cog. Better ports and posts, better joints, his torso doesn't just fall apart in the breeze. Here's about my favorite weaponizer combiner so far, though admittedly I don't put 10% as much time into building as I should!

    It's the red plastic mojo, man. Every figure made of red plastic is great! Inferno, Hot Rod, Redwing, Spinout, Warpath, Sideswipe, Crosshairs, Ironhide, Thrust, Hothouse, Skytread! Even the Biosferans! Can you help me name some more!? There may be exceptions but one doesn't quickly come to mind... Maybe Cyberverse Deluxe Hot Rod. But despite all his problems, he is a great figure that stands above some of his peers. They don't even have to be mostly red to gain massive points for having red! Jetfire, Omega Supreme, Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Sixgun, every single Optimus Prime, Slamdance! Grimlock and Sky Lynx and Cromar! Trailbreaker, Cog, and Ironworks are only kissed with red and they're the better for it! Decepticon Impactor's knees! Laserbeak's body! Rising up from the black of Runabout's Decepticon spark!
    Even Cliffjumper, that little turd! ...is just nice to handle thanks to being so red.

    But this is the Siege Appreciation Thread so ima stick to Siege bots except I think that's Kingdom Magnus down there.

    I’ve got one on its way from AliExpress. (Most I’ve seen are way too expensive now, but I found a good deal there.) My last Siege purchase. I know, I’m late.

    can anyone tel me why the siege Megs mold has a cutout on the fusion cannon, yet ER Mes doesn't. I thought it was a choking hazard maybe but then again its not exactly a small piece, but if siege had it why wouldn't ER? with all the re uses off this mold its kinda lame that they wouldn't cross parts like giving the spoiler megs the er fusion cannon when it looks better cuz there isn't a chunk ,missing. also when I get my spoiler pack in id be willing to trade it for an ER Megs even though I already have one, if anyone is interested lmk.

    For one, the fusion cannon between Siege and ER are different. ER version is actually longer. Also, they are different in tank mode. Siege has the sword/gun, and ER has that spear type weapon. I don't really know why the Siege one has a notch.

    I headcanon the gap as some kind of exhaust for gasses generated by the fusion cannon in operation.

    even tho it’s longer I’m pretty sure you can use ER fusion cannon on siege mold in tank mode But for me personally it just looks better for toon accuracy

    That would make sense siege Megs fusion cannon has a muzzle attachment lol

    Could also be that the notch there was put in play, in case the gun peg gets stuck. There would be a way to help get it out.

    The notch is hidden anyway.


    EDIT: Also, you can't use ER's tank cannon/spear with Siege. It doesn't fit. Different design. I've already tried that.


    Just to clarify... On siege, you'd have to untransform the shoulders, but you can only plug in the ER mold's turret from the top. That's because of the slots and when the shoulder's are untransformed, it blocks the blade part of the weapon.

    anyone else surprised we still haven’t gotten what I would have assumed would have been an obvious remold/repaint of this as Armada Wheeljack? I’ve see a few customs, but since we got tigertrack, two different red alerts, sideswipes, and deep covers...and I’d have assumed we’d get either that or (now with the shattered glass sublime) or SG sideswipe by now.

    Fuck. I wasn't planning on slipping the sparkless seeker cause I'm not on fire for those colors but seeing him with all the others might make me change my mind.

    Instead, we got 3 identical Wheeljacks (WFC-E06, WFC-K24, WFC-12), though one of them has dirty legs and no Earth-era sponsor logos, so I guess that counts as a redeco. Then there's Exhaust, he's not bad at all. I wish they'd spent the money to but an actual Marlboro logo on him, but I think Toyhax will probably hook me up there.

    Yeah, he's kind of ugly. But he has Battle Masters so I have to get 2 sets. :\ In his defense, up close, those shit brown paint jobs actually look fairly decent (if Sparkless Bot is any indication). I don't like the Siege seekers in alt mode, but in robot mode they are starting to grow on me and so I've been collecting them finally. Of course, I'll never get Thundercracker at this point, but that's OK. If I got one I would want a second one for more Battle Masters... :x

    I look forward to the follow-up when they all go on Robot Jerry Springer. Or whoever his equivalent is these days (I'm old and out of touch).
