    Minimal, but bear in mind this is only meant to compete with Power Rangers/Super Sentai levels of playability in combined form.
    The head turns a bit, there is shoulder articulation but stuff tends to get in the way of everything, although you can give the ams a more natural looking curl using what would be the shoulder joints of Leo and Scorpio.
    No knees, no waist, hips are very heavy ratchets but they're only useful for Ursa's standalone modes really.
    There's an LED in his chest and several voice clips too from the electronics in Ursa, plus an on/off switch for them.

    He's a brick, but that doesn't bother me. Infinity is so visually impressive and beefy that it works perfectly successfully in my eyes. Rock solid too, no danger of any of the limb connections coming apart accidentally.

    Ursa on its own is fun, robot mode has enough joints to be expressive, plus it is pretty large on its own terms even before combining! Ursa's bear form also shares the wheels on its feet of the other toys, so it'll scoot along the floor happily enough. The Infinity Helmet pegs onto the back of Ursa's waist for storage when not on its head for combined form.

    The payability and combining factor of the other four members of the team mark Biklonz down as a great success in my book. Here's hoping for more!

    Great Fighbird is my normal benchmark for size, heft, and solidity. Infinity matches it easily, and is certainly more weighty.

    Thanks for those links. I'm a fan of combining robots and these are right up my alley. I just hope they finally get released in retail over here. They already have Tobots on the shelves but of course there is a TV series on air right now so i'm sure that helps.

    I did a review of Ursa and Infinity:

    Sadly, on the one take I liked my camera stopped recording right before the end. I'd spent all day on it and couldn't be assed to refilm it for literally 40 seconds of end-of-review blathering.

    Biklonz news!

    Looks like there will be at least another two toys, with an interesting way of combining

    Cross Attacker is either the name of the new subline, or the robot, but looks nice. Hopefully with a few more usable joints this time.

    ???? ?? ??K ?? : ??? ???

    From the mangled translation, and if Hippie is right, we are expecting a new Biklonz combiner of fie animal robots.

    Cross Attacker, the Direwolf and Saber toothed Tiger we've seen.

    Cross Guardian, a giant elk, an argentavis (giant bird) and a mammoth.

    All five will combine too. Hopefully the inclusion of a giant bird means the combined form will have wings!

    Also, hopefully something concrete will confirm all this.

    Cross attacker looks cool and I eagerly await seeing a mammoth bot in this style.

    I understand that it's pretty damn bendy for a dx super robot combiner. :D

    Just got the cross attacker this morning and it's another great toy for this line.
    I'll post more detailed thoughts later but right now I just wanted to show this, was looking at the arm form for the completed mega beast combiner and I found that the arms can have a fair bit of articulation for a toy of this kind. It has:
    Rotation at the shoulder
    A mid arm rotation
    A psudeo elbow
    And presumably fist rotation

    This is the best looking config I've been able to come up with for the arm, I don't actually have ursa yet so can't show it combined with him but it seems like the final form could have fairly decent articulation.

    I'm holding off on buying the new ones until they come out with the big combiner gift set. With the old ones, the combined weapon (a big hammer) was only included with the big Biklonz Infinity gift set.

    Looks like Thunder Guardian is out in Korea, the combined form of it and Cross Attacker is called Barbarian King!

    That's Cross Attacker's box on top. It's a big one!

    I've got mine ordered. This thing looks leagues above Infinity.
