    I'm assuming the next limb will be a construction peice? I bet the gestalt combines into into autobot spike, or at least look like him.

    Kickback was one of my favorite Energon combiner limbs, and so I'm pretty pleased about this. I look forward to seeing actual (legal) pictures.

    I hope that one of the other limbs uses the Blackout mold. That one's my absolute favorite. Frankly, I'd rather they DIDN'T use any of the "Construction team" molds, but expect they'd use at least one. Three teams, four limbs, I expect they'll try to even things out as much as possible....

    Can't someone with a Shockwave avatar be a bit more open-minded about what's on the end of a robot's arm?

    I don't really get why it's so horrible to have a weapon hand when once a robot has a hand there's instant complaints about not having a handheld weapon to put in said hand :peoples:  A weapon hand just cuts out the middle man! :D 

    I think the Skyfall mode is better as an arm due to the thickness of the upper leg and the torso mold's non-widening hips, whereas the Kickback mold has the option of flipping back the "inner" tread piece, allowing the gestalt's legs to be posed in a less splayed position.

    My main problem with Skyfall being an arm is that he's the one and only combiner limb that can't be shifted slightly to have an elbow, without giving up a pile of its aesthetic. :/

    Still, that combiner is several years away, hehe.

    I was hoping that Skyfall was the first in an alternate colored Superion Maximus set that could serve as SM's ghostly brother. Oh well.

    I'm hoping Stormcloud'll be the other arm. A plane and a 'chopper will balance the look nicely. The other leg could be a Construction team remold, perhaps into a minesweeper or a jeep. The core would work as Barricade, that'd give the whole team a nice, military aesthetic.

    I bet he will. My question, though, is whether he'll have a similar color scheme to Skyfall. I'm hoping they'll go for an E-Superion, united color scheme rather than an E-Bruticus one, where the colors were all over the place.

    From what I could gather from the replies in the Allspark thread, the magazine didn't show any pics, it just said that it would be named Landquake and based on the Kickback mold.

    You'll actually note that I've edited that portion out of my original comment because I temporarily had Kickback and Blackout confused. However, your point still stands. Still, Shockwave had ONE regular fist. That may yet be true for this gestalt, but I think I'm still entitled to want the gestalt to have "real" hands. Shockwave is the exception that makes the rule.

    Your opinion, of course. But don't deny me the right to mine.

    Fair enough.

    Excellent news. Superion's ghostly brother would be a cool idea, but a lazy execution on TFCC's part. I definitely prefer new parts for this Club Exclusive combiner team. I'm in for another year!

    I bet the club wont even be around by the time this combiner is completed.

    They woulda been smarter to offer the combiner limbs every two months, and you coulda completed it in around a year's time.

    I think they have the contract for at least 4 more years so they don’t have to worry to much, and given there other link with Hasbro in the form of the GI Joe club I would put good money on them being around for a long time.

    Now for the mould, I like it I hope it gets an interesting remould.

    That's good news. I hope the next two limbs are based on the Stormcloud/Blackout mold, and the Sledge/Bonecrusher mold. Those little guys rock!

    So when is someone gonna post pics?

    *dodges flying objects*

    Just kidding. Seriously I hope for two different jets, one chopper and one tank with Barricade in the middle. I think that makes sense. We don't need any constructicons in this military themed set.
