    As you may know about the same time TFC Toys was designing Hercules, they were also designing a couple o combiners for a Chinese cartoon series called Star Rescue Team. One of these combiners was called Star God, and he had a vague resemblance to G1 Defensor (being 5 similar rescue vehicles).

    At the time the designer even planned to release a special edition of Star God in Defensor colors, and then have Junkion Blacksmith release a head and gun upgrade set which would have resulted in a passable Classic Defensor. Here is the concept art he released of what it would look like.

    Sadly this combiner never was released by TFC, and the sold the designs to Jin Jiang Toys, who released it years later, but only in the original Star God colors. Since then we have seen TFC, Maketoys, Hasbro and Takara all release Classic Defensor toys.

    Earlier this year a combiner was seen teased in a convention where sittoys snapped a picture of it.

    Now it seems Jin Jiang Toys is finally getting around to releasing the G1 Defensor colors. Of course now we have TFC, Maketoys, Hasbro and Takara Defensor toys out there, but this one is certainly the most original of those, with a futuristic or Cybertronian look.

    The first in-hand images just appearing online! What's best is that Jin Jiang Toys is known for it's ultra low prices. So expect this whole combiner to come in at $50-60 shipped to the US.

    Their names seem to be:

    Team name - Star Rescue Team
    Motorcycle name - Pioneer
    Helicopter name - Eagle
    Police truck name - Detective
    Ambulance name - Lightning
    Fire Truck name - Skyfire
    Combined form name - Star God

    BTW - No word if anyone has planned to release the head/gun upgrade set, sadly.

    I remember seeing this a couple of years ago. I thought there was a deluxe version as well as a voyager version to this...already have enough combiners filling my shelves.

    This seems to be based on the smaller version.

    I already have the red version and am pretty happy with it, considering what I paid for it. I certainly wouldn't mind getting it in Defensor colors, too.
    Even if the head/chest kit doesn't get released, I'm sure some clever shapeways designer(s) can create the parts.

    I have both the large and small red versions. While they are nifty, they are very obviously worth what you pay. I don't regret buying them but don't need more.

    This set can actually pass off as a WFC/FOC version of the team pretty nicely.

    More images from a convention this weekend.

    The box seems to call the combiner "Skyfire Defensor".

    Hmm. If I put the CW Defensor head on this body, I might have something I don't hate finally to represent the combiner.

    Oh, awesome! They're boxed individually. The limbs are already so close to the originals, I was thinking of maybe just going for the core body! :D

    The first store on Aliexpress has it in stock now. They want $121.91 with shipping for the set shipped in original boxes or $79.99 for all the figures loose. Now take this with a grain of salt, because I know this particular store, while reliable, is also expensive. I plan to wait for one of the lower prices stores to get it, and ship it without boxes.

    Aliexpress.com : Buy Box Package High quality Plastic ABS 40cm 5 In 1 Combine Deformation Robot Defensor Autobot Action figure Model Toys Set from Reliable abs certificate suppliers on Deformation Robot Factory

    The individual robots are named:

    Hot Spot - Skyfire
    Groove - Pioneer
    Streetwise - Detective
    Blades - Goshawk
    First Aid - Rescue

    The same seller just wants $28.99 with shipping for the just the Hot Spot loose. Some of you who already have the other limbs might want to get just him.

    Is it silly that my main interest are more Infinity Warfare-type weapons??? >_>

    Course, they seem like yellow versions of the old sets anyway.

    Looks like a good alt mode for an Armada Red Alert update...

    And Cyclonus for this bugger. Course, bot mode is a different story... heh.

    Some people are saying Rescue makes a good Minerva.
