    It looks like Menasor's horns are dark gray and not black. But they aren't silver like Hasbro's. Hopefully they stay that way on the final production piece, unlike how Superion lost his dark gray mouthplate, which kind of ruins his show look after all the other work they did on him.

    That's the best configuration of that mold I've seen yet. Looks like an actual robot, not a disproportioned mess. Well done!

    Generic-looking team is generic.

    But eh, since I already got Unite Warriors Superion and sold my Hasbro Stunticons, I suppose I could get this if anything for that beautiful box set.

    Release date is the 22nd of August?
    That's dangerously close to deadline for my private warehouse items on HLJ.
    Hopefully Menasor will make it in time so I can ship everything simultaneously.

    This set puts me off more and more every time I see it. The box looks fantastic and I wish Hasbro wouldnhave whoever's doing the art do some for us. But honestly Wildrider, Breakdown, and Deadend look about the same, Dragstrip looks too plain (even if he is show accurate)' and Motormaster just looks wrong. I'm downright surprised Takara didn't paint his head and chest in that greyish color to make the bot mode more G1 accurate. It actually looks a little cheap.
    Glad for those who will enjoy this but honestly in this case i'm happy with how ahasbro did it.

    No Pelvis nenas he has no OO. Lol. Had to go there. Anyway. Someone just needs to redo him with a little more mass and correct the pelvic area. If you hear us 3rd party people's. Let's get this boy reformatted with some beef.
    Thanks.
    Otherwise. Superion still wins. He has better weapons. Really.

    I turned around on Drag Strip. I actually sort of regret getting the Hasbro version now.

    As individual guys this set looks a lot more fun than the Aerialbots.

    This resembles some of the fan modes seen in the threads, I mean that in a good way.

    I don't get that configuratin; at a glance witht seeing the image well I thought it was a more G1 accurate configuration but up close it looks like an abominatin.
