Should we get more CW compatible 3P toys?

  1. Yes, it is a good combining standard.

    93.8%
  2. No, I don't like CW compatibility.

    That wasn't an upgrade kit. That was a figure that CAME with upgrades. Shadow Fisher doesn't make whole figures. We're going to have to wait for clearer pics, but you can clearly see that the torso is identical to the Onslaught mold, while everything else appears to be new.

    Wow so this wasn't an April fools after all. This upgrade seems like it is coming to late to the party.

    So according to the announcer at TFcon 2017 this guy is Combiner Wars compatible! Nice of someone to work on CW compatible toys.

    Compare with CW Onslaught:

    I looks more like a target master than a large sized bot.

    I'd honestly rather see CW-compatible 3P figures covering the combiners that weren't in Combiner Wars or Unite Warriors than replacements of figures that were in it. (i.e. Predaking, Abominus, Piranacon) That said, it's hard to say much for sure at this point.

    Actually super disappointing. I loved their Defensor set and really wanted something similar to it for Bruticus, and turning it into a seperate bot is clever, but....This doesn't work as an Onslaught replacement. At all. He looks like a legends class (i was legit shocked when I heard it replaces the entire torso), he is way less accurate in bot mode, the alt mode is a disaster...Noooooot a fan. At all. At least the Bruticus teaser looks good...?

    Looks terrible in bot and alt :lolol 

    But it's all about dat torso mode yeah? I'll just use the normal CW Onslaught for when I want to display the team uncombined.

    I kinda wish they went with the "give the old fig new parts" route though because I like how my upgraded Hotspot has waist articulation and chunkier lower legs.

    I didn't say it is a targetmaster, just that it looks like one. It reminds me of the Perfect Effect Rumble and Frenzy.

    Wow, the alt mode looks so bad. The robot mode looks like a Legends engineering-wise and looks far too close to the CW Voyager for me to be interested. Hard pass.

    Alt mode seems to be similar to PCC Bombshock...

    Sometimes i don't get the reasoning of 3p companies.
    A Brawl, yes. A Blast Off, sure. A Sideswipe or Jazz. But Onslaught? Sorry, this is not needed.
