    using semi-transparent plastic on the wings, tailfeathers, and especially the beak seem a rather odd choice...

    Good grief, this set is turning out to be fantastic. Hope it doesn't stand out from the other big combiners too much. Mind you, if combined mode is as good as the individual bots, I won't actually care.

    It will stand out, but in a good way, it will look fantastic!

    I'm monitoring this set closely. My concern is that the combiner will be unstable.

    Just because it isn't a pantsformer?

    It will have monkey pants, no?

    My own concern is for the weight of the thing.

    I love the stylized designs. But I think the colors are too mosaic-y. Divebomb should be mostly black, and Rampage mostly reddish.

    That's my problem with this set in general. There's some really cool, stylized designs going on here, but once you slap all those colours down, they become incredibly hard to read. That's only going to be amplified when you go into combined mode.

    Sometimes, "less is more" works.

    Seems like they did a pretty good job on the eagle mode.

    Even as a fully mechanic form, bird beast modes are usually pretty tough to pull off.

    thats one good looking bird man.

    I'm so tempted by this set, but I'm gonna wait out Razerclaw. Without seeing him or his torso mode, I cant commit

    I am weirdly excited to be able to complete the handcrab.

    Someday somebody will solve the apparent engineering problem of humanoid hips and thighs that become bird hips and thighs, or whatever is always going on down there with avian Transformers. You\'d think with all the successful two legged transforming dinos out there, it wouldn\'t be an issue any longer. Otherwise this thing is RAD!

    I'm just wish Cang Toys would go ahead and show an actual pic of the combiner. Is this normal? All we got is that silhouette? The figures look awesome though.

    The monkey pants are a whole new figure, so it doesn't count as a pantsformer.

    I think it will stand just fine, they have a lot of experience with combiners.
