    Cut the roof/backpack so his lights are not covered in truck mode. Still want to trim covers over rear wheels. Then some paint 20181128_142214.jpg 20181128_122035.jpg 20181128_122005.jpg

    Dang. I do like the Cybertronian truck design, but shaving those pieces off makes such a massive difference. Can't wait to see it polished up a bit now!

    Crop your pics, then they'll be upright.

    Looks good man!
    I've been working on mine too, I was trying to save the frame, but I might just go all the way back like you did...

    Does removing the roof affect Op's bot mode?

    Wow, removing the lights as far back as you did really makes a world of difference.
    I do love the Cybertronian alt mode, but damn, that looks so good with the little yellow lights showing instead of the big lamps.

    THAT is exactly what I'm after. I understand the marketing of Hasbro to create a different look with these head scoops and the WfC line designs.
    But I like the smaller yellow lights.
    We´ll see how mine works out soon...

    I actually don’t mind the back plate. Make it feel like an extra piece of armor. A Decepticon is very likely to try to shoot someone in the back.

    Siege Prime is Pragmatic Prime.

    But this looks good, too, like they might be planning on making an Earth Mode version later.

    I wonder if I could have my cake and eat it too by taking the roof lights off but repositioning them and reattaching them further back, like flood lights? That way you still get the G1 chest lights showing but still keep the cybertronian roof lights too.

    If I'm looking at the transformation correctly, the roof is one whole piece that ends up on his back so if the big lights are trimmed and them put back on it won't mess up the transformation. I don't have him yet but would this be possible?

    I replicated your idea and did it with mine since I was planning on getting a replacement anyway. It really should have been like this. All it really needs is a new roof top piece and head headlights to replace the gatling gun headlights.

    I'm a little surprised someone hasn't yet reworked the forward-facing guns so that in robot mode they're not pointing backwards out of the elbows, but instead are pointing forward while sitting on the outside of the forearms, Armada-Optimus (or Hot Rod) style.
