    G2 comes with these add ons for Longhaul. I never cared one way or another about parts forming but after having UW Devvy and Jin Bao oversized Warbotron, this set is by far the most stable combiner I've come across.

    My ab crunch ratchet has a bit of play in it so it can lead forward a bit but position the feet properly and the weight distribution means constructor can stand more upright. I guess, with the separate waist part, I could more easily fix that play. That's my only real gripe.

    Anyone know if this is a common thing, the play in the ab crunch ratchet? Is there a fix?

    My yellow set didn't come with any add ons I had to buy them separately.

    So torn on getting these guys. Just want them for bot mode but I'm not sure if they're g1 enough or too stylized. Are these worth it if it's JUST for a bot mode display? I have UW versions for bot mode with Perfect Effect kits and I go "They look a little cheap but LOOK like the animation and the characters" (not counting Longhaul who is somethine else). These look Masterpiece with nice detail but almost TOO much and not bot enough everytime I look at them.

    Anyone who has them have thoughts on that? Don't care about combined mode at all but would love some "I have them in hand" advice / opinons :(

    I think they look amazing. They fit well enough with the rest of my MPs, I think. The MP line goes from "smooth and cartoony" to "realistic and super detailed" at random anyways so

    Compared to Gravity Builder, these guys are VERY G1. GB is highly stylized/modern.
    I really like both but each has its perks.

    I mean, of all the Constructicon offerings these are THE closest to the original G1 bot modes, just upsized with slightly more articulation and actual feet! I don't think they're too stylized at all, especially compared to your other choices. If there's anything to criticize about their bot modes, its that its Toyworld, so their faces are as ugly as sin. Well, as someone else said, the NON-faceplate faces are hideous. (Heh, I'm not sure if its a conscious decision to make them stand out from the official offerings, or whoever's designing these things has that brain disorder where faces look all weird to them, so they see these TW faces as normal)

    But yeah, I totally have these displayed in bot mode (most of the time, occasionally I'll transform a couple of them into alt mode for a few weeks). If I had the space I'd get another set to display in combined mode, but yeah, I think they'd look good on your shelf in any mode.

    Sorry if this is somewhere in the thread already, but has the yellow G1 Constructor head been released anywhere yet?

    They look fantastic as G1 bots. They have that chunky blocky feel to them. I have a set of mine in bot mode along with all my season 1 Decepticons. They are a good height too. Bit shorter than Starscream. Full of personality, too. They look as detailed as an MP11 Seeker, IMO.

    TFSource as well. They appear to have both the green and yellow set.

    TW's Constuctor is awe inspiring, the G2 colors have grown on me. Each one offers something different.
