    This is a big PASS for me. I'm still mad at myself for picking up classics devastator, which is still MISB and needs to just be put up for auction.

    I just don't like these Energon Combiners and their 3 Molds plus 2 repaints. Not to mention the lame little neon translucent appendages that are supposed to be WHAT exactly?

    I just want an actual honest upgrade of a G1 combiner that is of Frenzy Rumble/Redline/ETC. type articulation with a unique mold for each individual robot...with the obviously less professional and thus affordable paint job.

    Too much to ask?

    Well it is prerelease, it's entirley possible that the store release will have matching pieces or that the supplier took some wrong pieces for this guy.

    Legs and arms are in the wrong spots.
    Brawl and Swindle are usualy the legs,
    And yes, the Energon Combiners are crappy at best.
    They could have at least re-molded some proper hands and feet for these things.
    Hell, I would have settled for some solid color versions of the current ones.

    unfortunately i do not think so...some paint apps might be different. but i believe these are going to be the plastic colors ...those earlier ebay auctions showed the same colors...plus hasbro has not had different (see thru plastic) colors on any of their recent prerelease items vs the retail version...paint differences yes but not on the clear translucent plastic ....


    it is a fugly pig and i think that is the same exact fugly pig that will get slapped in a box and sent to mass release retail....

    ick. I'd like it alot if his hands and feet didn't instantly remind me of the big "Crossbow" thing that little Arcee came with.

    The hands and feet really make it look cheap.

    So where's Vangelus?

    We need a "Menasor 1979 = evil!" speech here :D 

    But seriously - I may pick this up. I'd need to see better pictures though, I think. I don't have the originals though and have too few combiners (Magnaboss,Tripredacus and the Rainbow KO Constructicons are all I have)

    I like that the colors are more muted but I still think they should come with Purple clear parts. I like the idea of remolded hands/feet but it's never gonna happen. The Energon version of these guys were closer to the combaticons if you ask me.

    Good points
    Brawl's colors
    Vortex's colors

    But for this thing to be worth buying it needs

    Purple clear parts including windows and hand/feet
    Swindle to be a yellowish colored tank (like Dropshot's colors, kind of army yellow or khaki)
    Blast off more brown and a copter
