    So, I got thinking about the new Crosshairs coming out, and how he'll use the Ironhide mold.
    And I remembered seeing customs of Crosshairs using Kup's Titans Return mold, and wishing they'd done that officially.
    Then I realized, wait, I've got a Hasbro Kup I haven't used since I got the Takara with the Target Master!
    So, took a little time this afternoon to make Crosshairs here! Still a work in progress, but I feel like Wave 4 has come early for me, haha!

    Sorry if this belongs more in a customs thread or something....

    What wave should retailers be on by now?

    Because my TRU is still only on wave 1.

    After some deliberation, I have pre-ordered the Refraktor 3 pack. I had considered getting two more of the original Siege figures to give me the camera mode, as already have one and they do have the G1 cartoon look that I like. However, the upcoming set reminds me more of the toys I loved when I was a kid. Kind of a shame I didn't know the they were coming out when I bought the first one.

    You know, seeing him in vehicle mode with those other car Autobots, he does look pretty cool there.

    Yes, definitely. We got Springer, so perhaps Hot Rod is in the future as well. I'd like a Siege Arcee too. I've got the T30 version, but I'm not really satisfied with it.

    Thank you for mentioning where you got those. I'll likely be ordering some. I'd definitely love some more blast effects.

    I mean I usually open my sphincter for combing Optimus, but even I know when to draw the line.

    I was originally going to do that for my own custom Crosshairs so I could complete my set of CHUG Movie Autobots so Siege Crosshairs was definitely a pleasant (and much less expensive) surprise. My only complaint though is that I wish he didn’t come with the same weapon as Ironhide. I feel like a ‘bot named Crosshairs should have guns rather than a missile launcher. But I’m weird like that :D

    Finally opened Thundercracker and like a lot of people face swapped with Starscream. If anyone questions it I like to use my Mighty Mugg to justify my decision. Hahaha.

    The Perfect Effect Rumble and Frenzy work really well with the Siege Soundwave. I had to do some sanding to get the guns to mount directly to a 5mm port without the handle extension but I think they look good.

    BBTS had the pair in stock last I checked, beware I had major Q.C. issues with the first set they sent me but they took care of me, still waiting on one part to replace a cracked shoulder for Frenzy.

    Takara have been sneaking 3mm ports into the bums of generations figs for years now, so any flight stand with a 3mm post will work. The official masterpiece stands that came with MP Tracks and were briefly sold separately are of course good fits, but the most available appear to be Tamashii stands, both real (overpriced) and KO.

    Man, all these pics of Jetfire are making me want to get him, but I think he's just too big for me. I'm sure there's pics with it, but there's just too many pages for me to hunt through. Can anyone share pics of Jetfire next to a CW combiner?

    CAN I GET A LINK TO THESE PARTS, PRETTY PLEAZE!!!!

    (Geez, I'm super needy today....)
    Those look pretty neat!

    Hah! I was hoping someone would do a pic with those three, thanks!

    Edit: I now see the other two but I meant Metroplex, Sixgun and Jetfire :D

    I usually uses Bandai Action Base 4 or 5 for Gunpla which has 3mm port compatible parts or my KO Tamashii flight stands for my Siege Deluxes or Voyagers. For anything bigger like a Leader class figure, I'll suggest to take a look at Bandai Action Base 1 (Which is mostly designer to display Gunpla of bigger sizes like 1/100 scale)

    With the reveal of Siege Barricade, I try to see if the head on TLK Deluxe Barricade fits with this mold. The result is....... weird.
