I will add that in vehicle mode, the non painted wheels is not appealing and perhaps Toyhax will come out with something.
But all in all, still a cool figure in my opinion. I don’t own Ultra Magnus, so that would be a cool photo to see.
Who knows, may get him now.

Look closely at the detailing where the wheels are...LOOK CLOSER and you will see THEY ARE NOT WHEELS

Actually, yea, they kinda are. They're at least meant to be, otherwise they would not have been molded and painted as such on the other side.

The wheels are faux parts. On the original, the actual wheels would be on the wings, but on the Siege figure, since the actual wheels end up on his legs instead of the wings, they had to put fake wheels on the wings to keep the look of the original. In truck mode, the other side is not painted because that would have detracted from the look of the original

I don't disagree with you, but I'm looking at both of them side-by-side right now and the biggest detraction is the missing front wheel and the huge gap. At least if the front wheel were pushed back a bit, it wouldn't be so glaring. Great toy nonetheless.

Any clue about Ratchet will be a repaint of Ironhide or maybe a new mold?

According to TFWiki, Ratchet has made an appearance in the current comic now in his new figure's design, which shows him to be an Ironhide retool like we all thought, but I can't find any pictures of it online so far.

He'll probably be a head retool of Ironhide, maybe with a new lightbar to tab onto his roof.

From the looks of the comic, he will have a black chevron on top.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Galaxy Upgrade Prime gets retooled into the RID firetruck. The basic layout is already there, and it seems quite a few are clamoring for some nostalgia since the series is almost 20 years old. I, myself think it's about time we got some modern updates. Unless I'm mistaken, I think Sky-byte is the only one to receive an update so far. Obviously I'm not counting the obvious homage in Siege Ultra Magnus.

If that was going to happen, they should have done Fire Convoy first, and retooled Galaxy Convoy from him. That way he would have matched with Magnus and Car Robots was released before Galaxy Force.

A tiny screwdriver gently worked through the opening on Ironhide’s leg panel helps the peg fit more snuggly in the hole and it’s not as liable to fall right off.

Yeah, if they bastardize one of my all time favorite primes into that shittastic Siege "leader" mold, I'm going to set **** on fire.

I’m tempted to get Galaxy Prime just to do this. This is not healthy.

...

Anyone have a scale pic of Galaxy Prime and TR Sentinel?

It's definitely helped my copy of the figure. The flaps are still easily removeable with a minimum of force, but they don't just fall off at the slightest touch now. I was able to transform Ironhide into alt mode without any problems. When transforming him back, however, one of the leg/side panels did pop off, but I think that had more to do with the pressure I needed to use to untab the panel. I tried again and was able to get it to untab while not upsetting the friction hinge. I was surprised that widening the holes just slightly was enough to have an appreciable effect, and the plastic wasn't even stressed, which was a concern of mine before trying this fix.

I know it seems totally counterintuitive. Just be careful everyone! Like the Voyager Starscream running fix with his chest plate, they should have put a pin in those leg panels.

That Starscream running change was confirmed to be a hoax a while ago. Someone modified their copy of the figure and claimed that it was a running change when it actually wasn't.

Looking for:

- Unite Warriors Computron's Lightspeed
- Perfect Effect PC-11 Computron torso/head upgrade kit
- Unite Warriors Grand Scourge
- Combiner Wars Air Raid
- rifle and shoulder guns from Siege Bluestreak
- right arm from Earthrise Leader OP

I wouldn't want a pin in the leg panels. Sure, I don't like them coming loose so easily, but I wouldn't want the risk of broken parts. Overall, I think it's a very minor issue.

Thanks for the replies. And if the Galaxy Prime will be a retool/repaint for Solo Prime/nemesis will be great and a good reason to buy it...actually I really don't like this figure. Any hope for bumblebee or other cybertronians, like Kup or Arcee maybe? I really like this line, it's awesome! Maybe the Dinobots too...will be cool!

I'm going to swap them over to the regular "G1" Siege Sideswipe and give the black cannon with red missile to G2 Sideswipe. That'll sooth my "show accuracy" needs. The black and red will still match with G2 Sideswipe, and the original G2 didn't have that shoulder launcher anyway, but a different neon green gun with elongated blue missile.

I'm tempted to get a second set to do something similar for the upcoming Siege Red Alert (since he doesn't come with any shoulder launcher accessories), but I don't know what I'd do with an extra G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance. $50 is a lot of money for an just accessory for an action figure.



Hey Wolfman the same missile color issue was bugging me too, even moreso with Hound's rocket launcher with no rocket. I don't want a G2 Sideswipe but for a second I was like, man, but that missile color...For Hound I went through all my old plastic missiles and found a grey one and sanded it down to a point and it works great. If anyone saves all their old missiles from toy lines long past I think most of 'em are approximately our beloved 5mm peg size. A little sanding and patience and you can do an easy custom that fills that gap.
