Found Blitzwing and Skipjack yesterday. Blitzwing's neat enough. Skipjack's great, and helps the color balance of Devastator quite a bit. Not wanting to leave out Rampage, I worked out how to attach him to the back for a bigger hump. Since movie Devastator's supposed to just be made out of whoever's around, I added in ROTF Dirtboss to Scrapper to help even out the arms, too. He actually clips onto what makes Scrapper's right hand really well, but Dirtboss is so loose and floppy that he won't stay connected without help from a twist-tie. I suppose I could tighten up the joints with nail polish, but the tether is simpler.

Here's Devastator at 125% capacity:

ER Alternate Universe Optimus Prime & Seeker Elite Ramjet & Dirge.

AU Optimus came from a friend in the Australian Transformers club, while the seekers came from overseas, unfortunately Dirge is missing his canopy piece, so I'm going to try get a replacement part.

All right, deep breath.... InHALE... Transformers Generations Selects SIEGE War for Cybertron Centurion Drone with Weapons Pack -cough, hack, wheeze, gasp- Need.... air... -THUD!-

So yes, I ordered the Centurion Drone, not because I really wanted a silver version of Brunt(although I have to admit, he’s kind of cool. If I had 10 more of him and a green Trypticon I could make a Godzilla fan film), but for all the extras. My Earthrise Op now has his proper ion rifle(although it seems a bit out of scale. Is Prime’s rifle supposed to be as long as his leg?), while Roller is now sitting quietly in the trailer with the Earthrise Op’s rifle mounted. The energy axe went back in the box because as neat as the idea is, the way I’ve got him posed means the axe just looks out of place. And Siege Megs can’t hold the energo-mace, so either it’s supposed to go on the Earthrise Megs, or the pose is just too thick. The rest of the weapons are nice, although they could have painted the gun mode Shockwave. All in all, a good set.

Keeping me company whilst working... I'm not much for the cartoon but do love the movie and wanted a toy of this since I first saw it. Much nicer than the promo pics make out and even though the transformation's a bit of a cheat. Also, take care with the small arms, they're soft plastic and the joints they're on are stiff enough I almost broke them.
