    Not yet, parts are only test fitted for now, needs cleaning and attaching fully. Then hope I don't wreck it by trying to add paint.

    Those pieces look really cool, but I can't justify the price for them, lol

    It was moment of madness but ultimately after looking at the Bruticus add-ons coming out I decided for the same kind of money this offered more value to how I want my Bruticus to look.

    That's sick as hell dude. I don't know if I would paint it,., it looks good as is. Maybe just minimal paint for windows.

    I can't wait to see how it turns out. Nicely done

    So...now that the allspark has posted pics of the TFCC 5.0 Combiner, and the figures are all out, what does everone think?

    [​IMG]

    Can't say I'm a fan of this overall Combiner. Some of the Limbs are great, and the new head sculpts are well done, but overall this doesnt interest me much.

    What are everyone else's thoughts?

    He looks sick aside from the colors :eek:  especially if you put some PE accessories oh him. Also will the top part of the legs swivel sideways like motormaster and onslaught? Makes it look not so stubby.

    Would be way sick if it was all black using the green for accents

    I think it's neat and has a decent color scheme. Got limbs that are in the bluish color range and then you got the green and purple body.

    Primus steamshield's add-ons are a thing of beauty. If only those pins on the wings were easier to remove. And if the wings folded away better. And if it was cheaper.

    I like them. I'm just sad that we have NOTHING in the way of CW figures confirmed for the near future. Sure there's rumors of Predaking and Abominus, but nothing concrete...

    At least now I can build my display.

    Yeah, it's a shame there's no way to know for sure we will get any new CW Combiner stuff. Heck, i'm hoping TLK will use some of the molds for some exclusive multipack or something, i REALLY want something to fill up that CW Void.

    That is quite awesome. Wait, i got an idea, Do you happen to have DOTM Sandstorm by any chance? He would make a good 6th member considering that Sandstorm was a wrecker as well and it does have a weapon mode, wanna try that?

    I think he's a "sum of the parts is greater than the whole" kind of deal. CP and Toxitron are great. Fractyl is well-executed (even if he's not a character I have any affinity for). Bluestreak the same - well executed. Impactor is okay - good mold choice, nice accessories, decent-ish head sculpt. Putting those five together, though, with different colored HFGs, no new combiner head, and those characters having very little connection to one another means I'll probably never put them together like that. Bluestreak to the Diaclone section of the shelves, Fractyl will either go with Predacus or Offroad/Cyclonus/CP. Impactor will probably stay in the box since I have the MMC one.

    This is the kind of garish color scheme I like. It reminds me of the Joker.

    How do you even sign up for TFCC, anyway?
