Yup that is matched to uw, I think the mismatch on color will look tacky on cw
This wasn't on my radar, but color images have made me take notice...
Looks like the Maketoys version now.... well sort of..
do you think this may be redone to work wiht victorion
Looking forward to a few more pics and I may bite.
I really want those thigh pieces, but that is the only part I want.
I haven't been enamored with the PE hands and feet for Defensor. I definitely do not want the dream wave chest piece or head (though wondering if I can modify the CW head to use the neck that comes with this kit).
The fixes for the thighs and waist, plus the feet really have my interest for this kit. Since the price point is favorable, I decided I would digibash this up to see what he would look like if the original head and chest piece remained in place.
the biggest motivation is to try to fix the height difference between Devastator and the other Combiners as far as I am concerned. With Superion, I don't have much choice but to get the knee extensions off of Shapeways.
However, Defensor (and down the road, Bruticus) can be mistransformed and with this kit, done well. Just look at the height change from the stock height of Defensor, the mistransformed Defensor and Devastator, DrOblivian presents in this thread
Definitely isn't looking good to me : (
the hands and feets weapon modes are WAY too bulky for me and I really don't see why they didn't just do the hands like TFC toys' hades combiner (doesn't even need extra parts for the feet LOL) plus it's not in the same style.
I hope for their superion upgrade kit they make these changes and also make the feet a bit smaller (proportions don't really bother me unless they're just ******ed level proportions so the size of cw hand foot guns don't really bother me it's the weapon modes that bother me LOL) just because that will make their weapon modes a little bit smaller and less bulky.
I wish someone would do similar thigh/waist add-ons. I like the overall look of Defensor (the same for UW Bruticus). I just need a few minor improvements, similar to Xeonprime's pics above.
Still no update? I wish they'd at least say SOMETHING on the delay.
If anyone is getting this just for the hands and feet, I would gladly buy the rest of the parts off you. I'm looking to repaint them and upgrade Victorion.
Also, I'll buy the hands and feet off the Superion set for whoever gets that. I'd post my offer in that thread, but I can't seem to find it.
Has there been any update as to when/if this is going to be released?
SoOoO. It\'s late February now and we\'re still not seeing this kit. I had this on pre-order for a bit and then cancelled due to the color. Everything says Combine Wars, but it seems this is more for Unite Warriors. Has anyone seen an update on this?
Looks like 2 sets are out in China, showing up on Baidu and Chimungmung.... looks great, I'm considering buying the 2nd one now.
Link to Chimungmung for the TCW-02 CW Defensor Add-on Kit
chimungmung Toy Shop
Link to Baidu for the other one (c+), which I'm more interested.
The one from Dreamwave. I need to know, does it prevent hotspot's arms from moving in combined mode? Like, does it clip them in better than the original version? If not, then whats the point?
As cool as these kits look, I'm waffling on them. The installation seems like a hassle with lots of screw removal, really wish they'd have just made entirely new bottom legs so all you had to do was pop the peg out and put the new leg in.
Does anyone know how it scales with other combiners with perfect effect add on kit\'s?
^That's what I'm waiting to see (among other things): a bunch of shots w/other CW combiners to see if the bulk and height additions still keep these two of a size w/the rest of my combiners.
I'm really leaning towards getting these, but I want to see a really in-depth video and pictorial review. And if DW is reading the boards, please do a better job than C+ on differentiating Defensor and Victorion (mostly w/the chest piece, but maybe the feet, too, if you include them).
Just ran across this video. Seems like both sets are for UW???
This video review is for the C+ upgrade kit, not the Transform DW kit. Or is that not what you were saying? Sorry!
