    It looks like a classics styled Superion. I'm just not sure it's a good idea. I already have the Combiner and Unite Warriors Superion. I'm waiting on a nice Masterpiece to buy now.

    People might want to skim this thread before posting. It's been well established at it's an OS version of CW Superion with reshelled alt modes.

    It is 18 inches tall in the combined mode on the pose it is in to the top of one of the shoulder nosecones.

    Prices are total speculation according to the OS classics prime and the trend on china pricing that is happening now.

    I am definitely not tiny.

    My head is starting to spin a bit keeping track of all these options. Will keep tabs. I need something better than Uranos but not sure I've seen it yet.

    I really really like this, especially if it sizes up next to CW Devastator.

    you know, the more I stare at these guys, the more they seem to be geared towards the Generations crowd.

    They seem to be about the size of the CW aerialbots and it's about the size of the CW Superion.

    They're reshelled CW Aerialbots. Look at the grey proto's legs, they're the dead giveaway that it's definitely a reshelled Silverbolt.

    I dig it though. Great to see all jets having unique alt modes... as opposed to one guy being stuck as a repaint. If I could get this, I'd be more than happy to leave the CW G2 limbs on Sky Lynx... if I could get that guy sometime soon......

    Heck... if they went on to make other CW-styled limbs... I'd say they should retool/repaint various figures to form Optimus Prime's Energon limbs. Alpha Bravo is an easy copter, there are two Nosecones able to be retooled into a Drill, could take the First Aid/Trailbreaker mold and try to make a fire rescue vehicle of sorts (truck would be way off scale, unless it compresses) and then the sub... modify Blast Off?

    This new upgraded CW Superion will also replace my OS TFC Superion, and I'll have my combiners finished!
    The new GT Defensor will scale up next to Warbotron Bruticus and TFM Menasor very well, so I can replace my CW.

    I may even get OS Bruticus for some height variation.

    I dunno but to me they look like bigger versions of Combiner Wars figures :confused: 

    Either way, whatever the case here, I missed out on the CW set and this would be a welcomed addition to my collection if no better options present themselves very soon.

    Maybe a mod can edit the thread title to clearly state what these are.

    Word on the street is that these guys look striking similar to the CW versions ;) 


    Semi interested here. My Aerialbot OCD compels me to consider them. Still solid on the Zeta offering and crossing my fingers this is the start of the cascade of Superion offerings.

    Saw this next to the fans hobby figures, didn't know if there was a thread for it yet. They've added ankles and other tooling to the individual bots, then made new feet, hands, chest and added a waist swivel to the combined mode IMG_20170812_105126.jpg IMG_20170812_105131.jpg IMG_20170812_105106.jpg IMG_20170812_105058.jpg IMG_20170812_105123.jpg IMG_20170812_105112.jpg IMG_20170812_105118.jpg IMG_20170812_105128.jpg IMG_20170812_104549.jpg

    Looks like it was at TFNation 2017 too.

    Company is called Ju Jiang.

    Combiner is called Jet Commander.

    Heavily remolded and improved from the Combiner Wars based transformation, but with G1 real world jet alternate modes.

    About 18 inches tall at the top of his shoulder nosecone. The CW is about 12 inches. so about a 150% oversize.
