I try to make out all possible safeguard back transformations and a lot of comparrisons, check it out and let me know what you think. I also just added the Update showing the proper X jet combination along with the cockpits that open and the re combination of safeguard since my hands covered part of it. Check it out.

    Alright. I'm sold. Still not a fan of the combined vehicle mode, but the robot modes, Safeguard, and the individual vehicle modes far outweigh the one con. *sighs*

    Guess I'll be needing to add these guys back onto my POL at BBTS. I don't know if my local store will be carrying it, there's no shelf room.

    More money to be spent. Geez.

    Great review!

    Still unimpressed with these guys, though.

    Great review boring toys. The combine jet thing looks silly, if they did these as individual characters, they may have gotten away with it but as it stands they are silly.

    The combined jet mode is a joke. The combined robot mode is a bit weak because of bad proportions and unpleasant color scheme. The individual robot modes are ok, and the individual jet modes are very bland.

    I usually try to be positive, but this toy is really the weakest of the line.

    Awesome wings! I'll buy it. The lack of wings have been my major gripe since the first pics. X-wing combiner!

    Nice review D Banks. Never expect you to get them so early on from your source. :D

    I think they are ... OK, great job on the review. I know it's just going to be impulse that makes me buy them. Not me actually wanting him

    I wonder how big Safeguard is supposed to be in-fiction?

    I think all of the robot modes look great, but the alt modes are still lacking.

    Huh, Safeguard actually looked better than I was expecting. Still a wait and see for him though.

    The toys seem to be on the underwhelming side of things for an animated figure. I also believe that the characters will far outshine the toys and then everyone will want them.

    I will be getting them if only for the individual bot modes.

    Great informative review.

    Thanx
