    Wasn't there already a pic of one of the (prototype) limbs attached to Hotspot?

    Already posted on an earlier page, but here you go. Combiner port is the same, but hand/feet ports are different. So you have to keep each limb with the hand or foot it comes with.

    I got a set of these also and feel like they're definitely worth the price. Not perfect by any stretch, and I wish that they had forearm covers, but they are very, very solid. Plastic quality is top notch.

    I feel like once this dude is complete I'll never feel the need to get another Superion again. This is the one.

    I picked these up from Spence, and I love them. For me, they are worth it. There have been some reports of breakage (including my friend's), so be very careful transforming these. They are solid, but soft, with awkward leverage on their joints.

    My friend Steve left a day early, and his Skydive's wing joint snapped. I went back to the dealer's room today, and Spence was awesome enough to GIVE me a replacement that had the same issue on the opposite wing (they shipped to him fairly unprotected).

    I love these! The CW Aerialbots were always the best of their Combiners, but needed to be oversized and improved. And these look and feel great. I'll definitely be getting my Silverbolt from Spence:) 

    Sorry for the rough "dolla bill" measurement- all I had in the hotel room. It's approximately 6.14", so these guys are 7" tall. The jets slightly longer.

    My Skydive also has a snapped wing right out of the bag. Going to PM him too.

    Yeah, we found 2-3 that were broken, while buying them. I guess they were shipped "Sirtoys style", and loose in bags. Definitely gonna baby mine. Can't wait for Silverbolt.

    I can understand why people don't like these, but for me this is everything I wanted out of CW. I love third party figs that are coming out, but it's nice to get one that's not overly complicated and easy to transform back and forth.

    Amen to that. They came without instructions, and yet they were still fun to transform.:)

    Just got back from TFcon & a local purchase this evening, but I picked up the 4 limbs from TFcon today and compared the combining ports of these KOs to the OS defensor and while the size of the ports is the same, the groove/slot on the limbs' stem is too thin for the wedge on the OS hotshot & i think forcing it in would cause too much stress on the outer panels of hot shot.

    I'll probably take pics tomorrow, but I might have to widen 2 of the 4 opposing grooves so that they could accomodate defensor/hotspot and superion/silverbolt. I have the KOncept red hotshot coming in probably in a week or two, so I'll wait to see what fares there. But definitely going to wait on modifying the limb ports to widen the groove, as I want to see how they'd fare with silverbolt whenever that's released. At $35/limb they were more expensive than I would've liked (especially since I got the full diecast OS defensor for ~$72 shipped on aliexpress however long ago that was.

    Thanks for this. Gives a good comparison scale to some figures close to Masterpiece. These guys will be shorter than the MP11 molds but I know these KOs aren't meant to necessarily be that size.

    These are utterly amazing and I am all over them like white on rice. I wish I had been able to go to the show and pick them up. My best friend is insanely excited about Computron, like it's not even funny.

    Crap. I don't need oversized cars. I want a Computron and a modified Liokaiser that has Silverbolt remolded into Leozack.

    If the want to make oversized BotCon and TFSS combiners, they have my attention. Start with Predacus.
