    Got Chromia yesterday, fun figure, but while fiddling with her, I noticed something about her bike mode. Turn the headlights around, attach the bike stand guns backwards, and you get this:

    Looks a lot like a human-ish body lacking arms and legs, doesn't it? And, as you can see from the next picture, this "mode" has the slot in a fine position for combining purposes:

    I think that Arcee and the purple sister(Who, for lack of better information, I'll call Moonracer for now) are supposed to be giant smashing arms(Anyone who's got Arcee? Try seeing if her lower body can move like a left arm?), the angles are GOOD for that on the slots. I'm also going to, for the time being, assume that the total combined form is called Elita-1, both for her being all in one form, and for the combined form being an elite fighter(Of course, assumptions get us only so far).

    So, what are your opinions on this?

    To be totally honest, I hope that's not how they'll combine (if they combine). It's the motorcycle mode with Mystery Slot out and the headlights turned around, unless I'm missing something.

    I'd hope Hasbro can come up with something a little more intricate. Then again, I could be wrong *shrug*

    Wouldn't be the first time that an altmode was used as a combiner piece, I'm sure. I figure it looks good as a main body, plus there's the probability that the other two will have to do more transformation to be the arms.

    I s'pose. It's just a little disheartening ^_^

    I would almost wonder if the 3rd bike was the main body though, considering that Chromia's tab looks like it connects to something, and even though I don't have it, I thought I heard the Arcee bike has the same kind of connector as well. I mean, wouldn't they have to connect into something to work properly?

    And that's assuming that they will combine, and the 3rd bike is a new mold instead of a repaint.

    Arcee's and Chromia's combination slots are the same(And Chromia can connect with other Chromias, as I tested with a spare I picked up for a friend), so the third bike will have that same piece on her. They form a triangle, sorta, and I figured that Arcee's strange spine would make a pretty decent arm with the two wheels being a sort of mace weapon.

    Actually that would be practically every transformer combiner ever.

    Personally, I don't have much hope for the combined form at this point. It's not looking very promising.

    I suppose we won't have any sort of idea until some one gets a hold of a stolen Chinese version of cycle sister 3.

    The more I see of the moto-sisters the worse and worse the designs look. They are just a real mess, and I don't think the combination will make me think any differently.

    Peaugh would be my bet. He has Chromia and Arcee, and revied them.

    Yeah, I'm actually hoping that he tries this setup while trying to make an arm and mace with Arcee, but I'll do it myself once I get my hands on her.

    I...just can't see that working, toy wise. Arcee's wheel isn't centerable, if Peaugh's review is any indication, so the figure would be HEAVILY unbalanced. Where are you getting your info?

    Actually, I think that's someone's recolor of a picture of the purple bike from the preview comic.

    I dont think that pic is an actual representation of the combined mode. Looks just like acolored pic of one of the bikes by itself.

    That misleading photo REALLY needs to somehow get erased from the internetz. It's not real. It's a photoshop recolor of just one of the sisters.
