    Got my Seige Apeface custom back the other day. Looks so much better without the battle damage and yellowish plastic and really makes me miss the days of Takara Legends redecos. Full credit goes to Alutnarat

    Looks great. Although it does mean that you spent more time and money on customising this. Ultimately the toy should have initially looked better; used grey plastic instead of that "Clag white" and just skipped that try-hard "battle splatter" in the first place. Sometimes less is more. It does make me miss the days of pre-brand unification Takara (TOMY) variants. Legends were a bit different in that they were significantly dearer (and included bonus accessories or partners), but pre-Legends Takara/TOMY stuff would often give us variants at about the same price as the Hasbro versions (e.g. Henkei, United etc.).

    That's a great custom. It's what "should" have been... and the fact that so much work was done speaks to how badly they executed what should have been a great toy.


    Looking For:


    - Unite Warriors Glaze (Blades)
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat


    All can be loose or packaged, I don't mind.

    Expect Hasbro to release "clean" versions in the next couple of years... to make more money off the moulds.

    That looks great.

    I've recently become aware that EearthRise Snapdragon is a Voyager class. I'd initially misread as leader. That renewed my keenness for this figure. If it ever dribbles out to retail here I will probably grab it (stranger things have happened - remember the final wave of TLK toys turning up like 18 months late?).
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    I think its a decent toy that suffers from the original design.

    The original figure didn't transform so much as had different parts that opened up in each mode. The Siege Voyager does an impressive job of maintaining this general scheme while also making it more streamlined and in line with the cartoon appearance.
