    My next project for Siege Optimus.. I kinda dislike the look he have in vehicle mode, even though I think it’s a fresh design.. so I decided to do something about it..It’s a work in progress...
    but for now, I need to remove parts from the original top by taking off those pesky pins!

    Sorry if I sound like an a-hole for saying this, but it looks so close to the original, I don't see the point.

    Hard to tell from the previous shots as it looked like it was still jutting out past the front.

    Do you plan on repainting the whole thing?

    Wow, you reduced that pretty significantly and it still looks like it sticks out a lot.
