    Combined Mode looks really good compared to other two figures which came out.

    Though I think the price is a typo and the 4 is a 2.

    Looks cool, but $30 seems a bit high for this. :eek:  Considering it\'d be for the kids, a $30 purchase is a bigger deal than a $5-10 (especially when they\'re not particularly interested in RID, as a whole).

    In case anyone else is interested, Wave 3 The Last Knight Voyagers are found in Canada.

    I have a thread already for it.

    What are your thoughts on these? Are they ridiculously springy (do they auto-convert when you look at them funny :lol )?

    I am all on board for sets like this... my specific quibble is with the dang springs all over the place. They're annoying, imo. I really wish these things were more manual, less gimmick.

    I really don\'t think this is a spoiler - the CW Cyclonus had the same deal. They just adapted that bio. I doubt he will show up on the show with so few episodes left from season 3.

    P.S.-K Mart has him too,I ordered it awhile back and got Menasor.
    Menasor is okay,just wish his knees would bend.They're not ridiculously springy.My biggest problem is Motor,since he doesn't scale with deluxe Prime.

    wow I like this!

    i wish the arm bots also had color differences.

    I think fictional vehicle modes work Much better for these.

    I don't mind the limited articulation when you get fast combination (great for kids). I just hate toys that constantly change themselves (remember botshots? :banghead: ). I'm not keen on buying more kid stuff from Hasbro when they keep jamming springs everywhere. It's really a nuisance. :( 

    1) Spring-loaded toys break much easier because the springs tend to be delicate and can warp easy (from normal play)

    2) The gimmick only works half the time - there are a lot of springy toys that just don't function like they should. Like I mentioned above, they constantly convert themselves due to poor design, where parts don't hinge correctly/well.

    3) Springy toys have no longevity - I see these things disintegrating rather quickly, based on the thin little springs used. I'm not from the future, so I can't say that with certainty, but I wouldn't bet any money on these things lasting too long. The springs could rust and snap from age (again, because they are tiny springs).

    4) Seems like the only reason to even have the spring gimmick is to prevent/make-difficult KOs of the toys, which is really something that doesn't concern me (the non-corporation who doesn't sell these things).

    I'd hate to make THAT comparison, but... look at G1 toys. No springs (for the most part), and they've lasted fine. They don't give me half the problems these new springy toys from Hasbro do.

    Can anyone who buys this do me a favour? Can you take a picture of the sides of the box? They have concept art for the characters and I wanted a better look at them.
