    My responses towards your not-so-cool points
    1) You can paint them any color you want, really. PE's stuff seems to take most paint well.
    2) tbh Volc's head looks tiny even with the stock body, so I can see where you're coming from with this
    3) PE had a lot of feedback of how the all-around ball joints on their combiner feet would get lose eventually, and make the combiners tilt and eventually fall over, often face-first. I think they're opting to go with a side-tilt only strategy with these. which I kind of understand? Getting a combiner into a pose where it would use a front-back tilt while still being able to stay upright can be difficult.
    4) Another fair point, those weird gaps aren't present on any of their other combiner sets. Hands are odly chunky, though in Volc's case I can understand it better since he's supposedly a bruiser type.
    5) I'm not sure what you mean since I don't see any paint on the claws.
    6) the sword for Volc splits into weapons for all 5 dinos, though they're not really G-1 accurate. Though, in all honestly, barring Grimlock, the deluxes already come with G1 accurate weapons. I recommend Shapeways to scratch the itch further.
    7) I agree, I wish the ports could have been rotated inward in dinomode, it gives Grimlock less of a "Me am working cardio, metal munch goes straight to Grimlock's hips" kind of vibe.
    8) honestly the price is pretty okay considering how much similar kits have been seen costing. PE's sets are actually pretty reasonably priced for what they are, at least IMO.
    9) I kind of agree with you on that, but I think it being orange also keeps down on plastic costs since they're using the same kind of orange plastic that the composite sword/swords are made of.

    Was able to get Swoop and Slug today. Hoping Walmart might still have Grimlock tomorrow. Was going to get him off Amazon but they sold out. I just really like the dinobots and love the combineding from of Volcanicus. I just hope if I get this Perfect Effect set that it will be easy to put on the leg and arm parts without breaking anything.

    Why not a big sword. All the dinobots in g1 had swords. Dinobot combiner needs a combiner sword. It being huge is just a plus.

    I\'m most definitely (wanting) to get this! The made it so the legs can be better proportioned in combined mode!

    A little sword would just look silly.

    Also, because a huge combiner is a goddamn TANK and can soak up damage while getting close to shove that huge sword into any big bot and tear them in two. It would be such a waste to combine and then.... Hang out in the rear shooting from a distance. LAME.

    It's not how big the sword is, it's how you use it.

    If I'm using it to not look silly, then yes, size does matter. :p

    Well, I'm also a bit afraid that my PE combiner feet will become loose with time, but given the bad hip articulations of the torsos I've come to love the extra posability offered by the ball jointed ankle. I'll try to put my hands on one of the new ratcheted sets to see how it works.

    I think I need this set. I tried using Slash to fill out the torso like others have done, but it doesn't look right to me.

    Ahhh I see you are among the few who are appropriately schooled in the art of bullet deflection via sword spinning during an advance!

    Few understand this technique, beyond Wolverine Origins: Wade Wilson and several others I'm too lazy to look up.

    Well played sir!
