    For those with loose ratchets, check the screws, some of them aren't tightened. I had a loose joint on the devestator arm that was pretty floppy, but tightening up the screw fixed the problem.

    Got mine. Imagine the size of these mofos once they are complete and combine. received_1772761469447963_1.jpg

    The alt mode size seems pretty good, they are big hulking construction vehicles after all. And I imagine the scale will wind up being roughly TW Devvy size.

    The robot modes seem a bit on the big size, but that's combiner scale for you.

    They’ll be Combiner Wars Devy sized, like their Predaking and Bruticus.

    I hope they KO UT's Bruticus set next, if only to fix some of the problems that set has. :lol

    Hmm, perhaps you're right - I find it hard to judge scale in these pics!

    So if I'm judging that right, Constructor is like 35-40% taller than the original GB? Whereas the OS is about... 20% taller? So yeah I guess it's about halfway between GT and TW, which is roughly CW Devvy?

    Hey if anyone wants to trade/swap out their legs for scrapper or bonecrusher let me know- I’d like to have a devy with matching arms that are both purple or both green (I prefer purple).
    FYI - my sets A and B won’t arrive until set B is released.

    @G.I.EDDIE probably would if he’s getting this set, due to his disdain of purple treads :)

    It's going to be just a bit shorter, if it's the same size as the oversized Bruticus. But assuming the add on extension parts are KO'd for this set - which should be a no-brainer for JinBao - it should be around the same height.

    I do plan on getting the set, but not until ALL figures are released. How patient are you? :D 

    And yeah, @robh is correct, I dislike the purple.

    Patient enough to wait. I’ll hit you up at the appropriate time.

    That video reminds me of what a terrible job they did on scrapper's hand covers - NBK really fixed that part up.
    I think I will miss some of NBK's improvements - like the extra gap cover on Scavenger's vehicle mode for a start.

    (My Internet is beyond a joke today it's loosing connection all the time - damn pain. I have to sit here twiddling my thumbs to submit a post when it's actually working)

    Too bad their improvements were vastly overshadowed by their simplifications

    Just curious guys, how are you able to muster the patience to wait? Lol.. The set A figures are pretty awesome for $60 brand new shipped. Why wait for the 2nd release before getting the first? Feel free to PM if you change your mind and want them early.

    This OS set I think really is bananas in terms of quality and bang for the buck. For $30, you get an awesome 3p non simplified bot shipped to your door. Not sure if anything from Hasbro/Takara can even come close on delivering something like this...

    I found a preorder offer for sets A and B for $96 shipped, making each set $48.
    Presumably it will be even cheaper to wait on all 6 and preorder them, I assume Eddie is doing some thing similar.
