    I was looking at the official image and thought that the shoulder connector being black and not purple helped the figure a bit but still the connector could have been different.

    This image came to my mind when I thought of an alternative. What do you think?

    Honestly, I'll wait until I see it in-hand. In every shot they've provided us with so far of Bruticus' combined form, there are parts that look mis-transformed. So... while I'm sure there will always be room for improvement, I'm reserving judgment.

    They're probably as they are because they also need to be knees.

    That's the attitude I have towards most things but I have this feeling that what we see with those connectors is what we get. Personally I have no problem with them but I'm wondering other ways they could have been designed.

    I was thinking this too. I agree with Archon that it's most likely because they are also knees, and it looks like they wouldn't stretch past the end of the vehicles if they were shorter. However, they do look as if they can compress inwards. The photographers may have skipped this because those are most likely HEFTY slide joints if they have to support the weight of three deluxes sometimes.
