Man, that kit makes a huge difference with this combiner.
He measures near 14", so at least a good 2 inches taller, depending on which combiner you put him up against.
I like it.
Do you have a Hot Spot? cause that team would also make a good alternate defensor.
No, I never got him as I knew I was getting Bruticus. It was only after I made my Sky Reign I realized that I basically had the Protectobots. That's why I reversed the limb set up.
Yeah man Rook is one of the harder ones to get it seems, and Blades / Alpha Bravo is six one, one half dozen of the other especially since AB looks a LOT like the Rescue bots Blades anyway. I'm looking for any of the three right now for a good deal to get a slightly less ghetto Defensor going. I am pretty sure though I will keep using Prowl on mine unless I find First Aid. Even as a kid I wondered how First Aid, Ratchet, Streetwise, and prowl were all related or fit together or not. I mean That's basically what Defensor was/ is .. and I thought it was ..I don't know if odd or what maybe just notable that Prowl, Ratchet and a Fire truck. Inferno already existed but then we were given duplicates of them all as Defensor. The pressure is really going to be on when the new Inferno from Hot Spot mold gets released in POTPs because we are already in a rarity on the UW and club Ratchets and like I said Blades, First Aid and rook are all expensive now. Pretty much leaves groove and Prowl as the only available alternatives for a EMS themed limb and with Hot spot and Infernos 8 total slots to fill they better release / rerelease Ratchet and or some Prime Master compatible encores of the Protectobots.
No, I have nylon tape cut and wrapped around the regular CW limbs's port. It's enough to thicken the port and fits very snuggly in the OS Hotspot's ports. Looks proportionally better to me.
Posting this in all three "Prime Trilogy" appreciation threads
This is 95% of my primes trilogy collection (there's two packed away currently) I only have 1 (one) figure from the Power of The Primes right now (Slug). More to come.
I keep getting tempted by that TDW Defensor kit every time I see it
I've got UW Hotspot so that blue plastic matching is even more of a tease that's difficult to ignore
Also with the resent news of global brand unification or what ever there is even less of a chance of Takara doing anything for Liokaser.
While I wouldn't put all my hope on it since there's been no word on the matter, Takara still might be doing their "thing" for some of POTP in terms of boxsets since the Dinobots haven't been shown in their assortment. Doesn't mean we could see a Liokiaiser in their new United Warriors boxsets though.
Personally, I bought the CW Liokaiser set and plan on using the TFC Leozak and Jaguar with them since I don't see Takara doing it any time soon. Also, a custom Leozak from POTP Starscream is also a plan for me. If Takara does do something for LK, then awesome. I'll pick that up, too. If not then I'm already halfway there.
The boxsets of computron and bruticus really impressed me. Even though I said I wont I caved on Hasbro Dinobots and bought em. I will buy the boxset if/when it comes out from Takara.
Liokaiser was something I hoped Takara would improve on but not too attached to it so not buying was not a loss for me.
Does anyone have an extra trail breaker hfg? I bought my son some loose gigs and tb didn't have his claw.
Do you guys recommend keeping Dezarus? Just that I don't like that he's just Sky Lynx. I was just going to use the Combiner Limbs for Starscream. Just make them Starscream's loyal minions.
Sure, why not? Transformers are filled with a ton of "genericons" (repaints), I call mine "Kaiser" and the combined form is Dezarus (until I get the TFC torso bots, that will be Lio Kaiser) or he'll become my Legend sized SG Skylink.
I'm bashing my head off my desk. There was a guy who used the giant Beast Hunter Optimus limbs for Combiner Wars Optimus and after close to an hour I still can't find it. I just found the other leg to mine and would like to make my own version. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
