Lord Starscream, tyrant of the firmament!
is this siege prime? how did u remove the arm kibble and attach it to the back? Looks really good
Those swords are very cool!
That's one of the OS KOs. e.g.:
Siege Optimus Prime BM AOYI - TF - SirToys.com
Optimus Prime, Siege, G Other, Transformers KnockOff KO, Action Figure Checklist Photos
no, it's a Siege Prime that I customized.
Will you have a tutorial thread how you did that? Would love to know how you figured out to attach the arm kibble to the backpack
My Siege Nemesis is for sale
Those look really awesome!
Snapdragon is even better with Kingdom Wingfinger, possibly is the most underrated deluxe of the year.
These are fun toys.

Harcee - "Hi there!"
Pounce - "Uh-oh!"
Pounce - "Please don't kill me with your bazooka crazy lady!"
Harcee - "Aw! You're so adorable!"
Megatron - "If you like him so much how about a deal?"
Megatron - "If you promise to stop killing everyone with your bazooka I'll give Pounce to you!"
Pounce - "WAIT, WHAT??"
Harcee - "DEAL!"
Harcee - "Come here muffin!"
Pounce - "Oh come on Megatron, you can't do this!"
Megatron - "Oh just take it for the team!"
Harcee - "Hee hee! First I'm gonna dress you up like a duckie!"
Pounce - "Oh no! At least give me my dignity! Someone shoot me, I'd do it myself, but Hasbro didn't give me a gun!"
Ironhide - "Sucks to be you!"
Viewfinder - "Bye Quackers!"
Red Alert - "I want to have Infernos baby!"
Ratchet - "Now Red, firstly I don't think Inferno would be down with that, and we've been over this! You can't because of the way you're designed!"
Red Alert - "But why?"
Ratchet - "Oh Primus I need a vacation!"
Burt - "Hey doc, what's the hold up? I need my check-up!"
Ratchet - "Well then maybe you can explain the birds and the bees to Red here and we can get on with that!"
Burt - "Bees buzz around and make honey! Birds sing alot and crap all over owners van, which really pisses him off!"
Ratchet - "I CAN'T WIN! THERE'S NO WINNING!!!"

What do you guys think of this edit? I've never been a fan of Siege Megatron's rather squat stature, so I'm working with another member to design and 3d print hip extenders and a taller pelvis, along with a simple shoulder mod to make his arms sit lower and then I think I'll be far more satisfied with my ER Optimus' rival
Will the mod work with ER too
I think the pelvis is too tall . G1 Megatron has always had that old school my underwear goes up way past my navel vibe but, that pelvis makes the upper torso (especially the abdomen) look too short since the pelvis is now the same height as the upper torso is (which is accurate to the Sunbow animation model). The Sunbow model has the chest width equal to the height from the top of the chest down to the end of the pelvis (which is how Earthrise Megatron is from the factory but it's pelvis is too short). It's probably because Siege/Earthrise Megatron have significantly broader chests/abdomen/shoulders than the Sunbow model . The toys are always going to look as wide as a barn from the front profile and you can't really change a DON-esque look without changing everything.
The thigh extensions make the thighs look narrow but, they do bring them to the proper proportional height ratio for the lower legs. It doesn't help that there is a ton of space between the hips/legs/feet in a neutral front profile since a lot of the Siege/Earthrise toys had really wide crotches and the thighs and lower legs weren't balanced around that. It's really hard to move away from wanting accurate human proportions with G1 because, that's how they were designed and drawn.
For clarity, this doesn't look bad. I think it's going to be one of those "you need to see it in person" scenarios because things can look very different when viewed at actual scale (e.g. Kingdom core class Soundwave, Siege Doubledealer, Siege/Kingdom Ultra Magnus with/without extensions, anything larger than the current leader class, etc.).
How severely does this impact the alt mode? It looks like it would increase the H-tank gap considerably because of the increased height from the pelvis and the thigh extensions along with pushing the turret further back.
