    $60 isn't cheap?


    Damn, I've been buying 3rd party too long if $60 for a whole set isn't cheap, because I would've expected ONE of those bots to be $60 on it's own. :lol 


    Thanks bud. :)

    :lol  I play more in the Chinese Market space (both Original and KO stuff) for just that reason, I won't pop $100 for a deluxe scale figure unless it's something DAMN unique these days.

    The larger diecast version of Fire King Sella for about $25 per figure. There is also a cut down plastic version (downsized?) That is $32 for the whole combiner.

    Here is the same figure in 2 versions...

    $25 a figure????

    I've got the large Die Cast dudes, and for me they've clocked in (at sir toys) at:

    $54 for the revised red Police Set
    $45 for the full Police Set
    $90 for Fire Rescue
    $70 for the green plane set

    so $64 on average a set...$13 a figure on average...

    Hi don't know if this has been asked already but does anyone know the size of these guys. I'm kinda hoping toy world/ oversized Warbotron sized. Unless weijiang do multiple sizes. They are looking good though.

    It seems it's slightly bigger than CW combiners.

    I hope these are Warbotron scale. I’ve got no nostalgia for the Technobots as characters, so I’ve bypassed all the offerings so far, but these look like a really nice update on the concept and have certainly got my attention. It looks like they’ve taken a different approach to combining them as well, which is refreshing.

    I like the concept of re-imagining of Technobots. I love that idea.

    Sadly, I can't get the character of some of Technobots here... I still get the vibe of Nosecone, Lightspeed and Afterburner... But that's it. Strafe and Scattershot need rework. And the Computron... I like how they choose to split Scattershot (or Strafe? Correct me if I am wrong) and make him the arm. I am okay the way Strafe become lower half of torso. But the crotch section is too wide.

    Not bad. They just need a bit more polish here and there.

    My hope is they are big enough. At least to compete for Unique Toys Ordin.

    I'm looking at the arms and trying to figure out if there is any bicep rotation. It doesn't look like there's a cut for it on "Scattershot" and making one might be complicated with how he splits. I thought the thigh rotation might have been used but the legs appear to collapse to make the arms, making it into a forearm rotation. That's still nice if the hands are stationary. I hope I'm just missing something since this is a major point for posability. Everything else looks good, since we usually go without a waist swivel on combiners. With luck, I'm missing something or they'll fix it in the final version.

    The way they combine is very unique. :)  I don't care too much for the Technobots but I'll admit this is strongly tempting and he seems to look good with the CW figures or even as a stand in for a movieverse Technobots team.

    Im way into the unorthodox way of combining that gives him matching arms.
