    It would be nice if there were actual pictures of how the add on parts looked on him, but I'll have to wait and see.

    New hands that can hold his weapons better would be grand.

    Seriously.
    As great as the basic Cog is from the G1 Fort Max,I would like an upgrade without old foil stickers prone to breakage.

    Will be interesting to see how all these pieces fit together, but as of right now, colour me interested.

    I'm not really sure what I'm looking at? HA HA!

    You can fit the G1 arm missiles on the toy, but they don't fit well. I'd certainly be interested in that.

    Yeah, I have no idea what any of this does.

    Now if they made non-hollow missiles...

    The upgrade parts look cool so far. Curious about what's the blue large piece next to the rifle is though.

    Looks like it fills in his back in robot mode.
    I wonder what purpose the lifts for his feet serve. He's already tall enough. Also, does anyone know the source of the gun design?

    looks to be a filler piece for the back of magnus.

    same with the pieces below it i think are fillers for the back of the thighs.

    sooo everything included is:?

    New rifle
    New arms with a wrist swivel
    back and thigh filler pieces
    an idwish head sculpt? with optional face plate it looks like.

    and lastly the feet pieces, its hard to tell but it definitely has cuts that mimic the grooves in his feet, so it might just be fillers that help his stability problems.

    but at the same time it does look like its two pieces stacked, so hopefully there's a rocker between them for some faux ankle tilt.

    it looks like a neat set that fixes his most glaring issues, but if this is more then $35 ill probably pass.

    I just got mine in-hand today and yes, definitely this. It's my main critical takeaway from what's an otherwise solid figure.

    So the are largely just filler plates and replacement for arms. I might get this, really depends on the price.

    if they did half of the arm i kind of wish they just did the whole arm so the stacks could become guns,i also think they should have done new missile launchers to replace the hollow ones and not really feeling the head right now but it sure is better than nothing
