    it seems rather counter productive putting my Kabaya Fort Max on here since you already have one of those up!...but.....here goes.........
    i've put him with my Voy Starscream...for size comparison!

    the only probs i see...is that this hatch isn't transparent & green!
    IMG_20121128_185010.jpg
    & that this leg joint, is only attached on one side + it tends to ride off the peg, when moving the legs, to transform him

    apart from those minor niggles...i may pick another one of those up, sometime next year. coz he's kinda cool:cool:

    Do these things transform or are they like a puzzle when going from robot to alt mode

    Great idea for a thread! I have the recent waves complete, and I'm hunting for the KOs of the vintage sets (the originals are too expensive for me). I will contribute as soon as I'm able take pics.

    no, they transform, apart from the tiny powerglide! you take his wings off & reattach those as arms, if you were referring to the seacons....i suppose they can transform too

    No way, the more the merrier!

    Fort Max transforms (almost) completely. However, smaller kits require some part-forming to transform to their alt mode. Basically it's usually a mixture of trans & parts-forming.

    Do the Seacons have a combined mode? If so can you post it?

    BTW great pics unicron nemesis! I recently got the Fort Max kits and will be building him over the holiday break!

    Thanks!

    Yes, the seacons combine as well. I'll probably need some time to get down to taking pics of that as I've stored them away.

    You can see the combined mode here though

    King Poseidon (Gum) - G1 Kabaya - TFW2005

    Yes they are! Same thing, check out the link above.

    I bought them because unlike most of the vintage Kabaya kits, this set came in their G1 colours (almost). In fact, I think they are the only kits that came in this colour scheme. It was love at first sight when I saw them in the glass cabinet in Tokyo last year. Grabbed them just before I headed down to the airport.

    There is a six shot but he's blue white and grey I think.

    I have a unassembled soundwave on the way!

    That's the WST Sixshot from JustiToys.

    Deceptigtar is right. The vintage kabaya Sixshot is blue, white and grey in colour.
