    Just got Swoop! Now I can try combining all available dinobots so far.
    I like how Volcanicus looks! Adding the hand pieces in the side really make him more bulky.

    Hey guys , does any one have an idea as to who is Inferno`s right leg in combined mode ?... Sorry I`f I`ve missed it , but I don`t see any thing that`s been leaked that could possibly be that shape with wheels on the knee like that . Looks very interesting though.

    Unscrewed the Optimus parts from Orion, built a head connector out of Lego, and now I can display Optimus and Orion at the same time:

    Filled in some gaps visible from the front with extra red Lego pieces.

    The current theory is that it is an unknown repaint of Jazz.

    that's no Lego.

    creative solution, but it does look as if optimus is missing something.

    Just curious if the combiner feet is a combination of the voyager and deluxe so why are there so many pics with only the voyager part as feet?
    Is the combined one not stable enough?

    Don't have them in hand right now, but I'm pretty sure the deluxe parts don't allow for the peg to point upwards so they can peg in as feet. You can connect them upside down with the fingers on top, but that wouldn't be stable and it'd look goofy.

    The feet are pretty stable without the hands attached (though attaching them only adds stability). I think a lot of people aren't attaching the hands to the feet because:

    A) They don't have enough PotP deluxes to give their combiner new hands and attach hands to the feet (many people are still using CW deluxes with the new Voyagers)

    or

    B) In the case of Volcanicus, spare hands can instead be attached to the torso to fill it out, and it looks pretty bad without them.

    My guess is Sideswipe/Red Alert. It's the most Hasbro guess for a retool

    C) Use aftermarket feet with combiners, even these new feet are too small

    Got the 1st 2 Leader class figures yesterday. I love them both! I'm keeping Prime in the Orion Pax mode for now just because I really only got the figure for that mode. Rodimus is great, I just wish his head could tilt forward. I kept telling myself that this Rodimus would determine if I buy the evil version coming in later waves. I am totally 100% ok with buying the evil version now.

    This evolution idea is fantastic! Back when I was a kid, I only had Rodimus Prime, not Hot Rod. I would take off the spoiler and the trailer and pretend that Rodimus was Hot Rod. Then, when he became Rodimus, I would add the parts back. I feel like the leader class Rodimus was made for me since he can evolve. It really makes 5 year old me super happy.

    Ahh, I thought you were asking about using the deluxe parts by themselves as feet. Sorry for the confusion!

    Well there are some real Lego pieces in there anyway. Ha. Lots of little fake Lego sets available here for parts.

    Optimus looks the same from the front as before, but without Orion's blue legs on his back. Would be easy to fill out the back with more Lego (or fake Lego). This was a quicky mostly just to get it to look good from the front. Perhaps I'll build up the back with some blue.

    I was just glad to find out Orion could be taken apart without popping pins. Happy that this is totally reversible with just three screws (which I keep stored in the original holes so they won't get misplaced), and that the chest can still open to view the Matrix.
