Perhaps "Tiger Camo" or "Tigerstripe" Megatron?
Where is the sticker and shield set from?
It's so obvious guys its right in front of your eyes!
Lightning Tiger Megatron or LTM for short.
Why... He has Friggin lightning bolts around his name and he is tiger striped... You're welcome. lol
I kid i kid... but that has a ring to it.
Yeah I feel the same as you, as much as I like the new seeker mold I LOVE the old classics one, it’s one of my favourites despite it now being a whopping 13 years old!
I think it still holds up pretty well today, so I took a few photos of the 2 Siege figures I have so far with a variety of Classics / Prime Wars figures, including the Seeker mold.
I only have Sideswipe & Flywheels so far (not seen Cog & as nice as Hound looks, I’m happy with the old Henkei/Classics one I have) & think they scale great! Yeah Sideswipe is a bit smaller than the last version, but that was a giant figure & a bit of variety in height goes great, he’s still bigger than some other Classics characters.
I also think they still scale great with the Classics Seeker mold, especially with the height being lowered a bit in Siege. Sure I’d like it to be a cm or so taller, but that’s an issue for when it was originally released all those years ago. I can still make him fit fine, so much so I’m sticking with them in my collection! It especially scales well with Sideswipe I think.
Personally even if I do get the new Seeker mold now, it’d probably only be for Starscream. I feel Skywarp, Thundercracker & the Coneheads are perfect in height as they are, they don’t need to be super tall. Though you now have Starscream available in every size from Legend to Leader, so one will be bound to please you.
Nah, too long.
Nah, too NAZI.
You may be on to something. But I'm be sticking with just "Tiger" Megatron.
I love the old classics seeker molds too. Sweet null ray set on Skywarp--- Dr. Wu's? I have been trying to find a set for all 3 seekers but they don't make them anymore so it's been hard to find.
Call me dumb, but I just realized G2 Combat Megs has a new head, and seems more IDWesque.
Also, and if anyone is sick of my weapon combos, speak now, because here's another!
Its a scythe!
Thanks buddy! I agree they make a world of difference, I looked at the Dr Wu ones but found these ones by ‘Guilty’ to be better quality, better coloured & also far better value for money (I think it was $30 or $40 for all 7 main release seekers & missiles, though they are all the same for the Coneheads too like in the cartoon)
Here’s a review someone on here did a few years back, they were colour matched to the Hasbro Asia Seeker box sets so match them best, but also look great with Henkei or other releases.
I picked them up about 2 years ago so they are still out there, you just need to know what you’re looking for & keep your eyes peeled.
Guilty Hunger G-04 Classic Seeker Weapons Set
Oh yeah, the Guilty Hunger set is the better deal but I unfortunately haven't been able to find that set either. Every place I look says it's out of stock and I don't think they make them anymore. I'll have to keep looking. Thanks!
Considering what the colour scheme brings to mind:
I'd go with MINT-O-TRON.
I like the colors! I'm willing to justify buying it because it almost looks like a whole other figure next to Wave 1 Megatron.
Tell me something: this is gonna read weird, but how do the lips look on the head sculpt? Do they stick out or look Overlord-y at all?
Cheers just ordered. Its really awesome and cheap too. Dont usually like 3rd party stuff but this is too good not too.
The roof/shied is pretty cool, I ordered the set just for that. Don’t really care one bit about the stickers haha
Puny bone bag, you dear call the Mighty "TIGER" Megatron a candy ass.
I have them too. they are really good and if you shop smart you can get the set for a reasonable price. the best part is, the arms turn into piledrivers
So disappointed by the Toyhax stuff for Siege. I've been a fan of Reprolabels since the first Classics sets, but I feel that they dropped the ball for Siege figures. The figures are representing the characters before they experienced Earth, but Toyhax decided that, for some reason, it was a good idea to put human letters on them. =/ So disappointing and unimmersive.
I store his rocket launcher thingy also underneath but on the peg of the black part and facing outwards so that it looks like he has a jet engine behind him in vehicle-mode
How about this suggestion from one of my Instagram followers:
Separate names with a comma.
