Ehh, Waverider, Wildrider.. PoTAYto, poTAHto..
General consensus is that Motormaster and to some extent, Prime are the only crappy ones. Everyone else seems to be enjoyed by many.
I think the Yuki configuration looks pretty good. Will have to get it in hand before I can really judge.
In no way would I buy that add on that keeps him spread out like it will. looks like that kit only allows for a wide leg stance, not how I pose my figures. I already made my add on kit for mine...just wish another Motormaster was available so I can get one to paint all Black.
All in all, if they had thought about it more, and changed a few tab locations, and added a few tabs, MotorPrime could have been an awesome torso.
Intimidator doesn't look all that great, he has a tiny bean head, and relies on Motormaster wearing stilts to connect the cars to for legs. Plus, none of them look very much like their characters except maybe Brakedown and the alt mode of Motormaster is a $120 brick. Not to mention, I can buy sets of CW Menasor and UW Menasor, and maybe the G2 set for the price of one complete Intimidator.
If you fix CW Motormaster's torso transformation, he's good to go. Just sad the default mode can be considered crap to many, because that mold could be capable of much more if only it had a few things re engineered.
You know it would help if these pics were larger so I could see the configuration instead of just guessing, and me screwing it up again with my own figure.
This is what it should be
Well....it's something, i'll give it that.
Dragstrip looks so much better if you don't do his official arm tramsformation.
I cancelled my preorder. Better a single figure done well than this.
That is a huge improvement in proportion. I just did that on mine except I didn't rotate shoulders. I left them stock as I think they look better. The car legs have to stay the same. If configured as in his photo, you lose all your knee bend. Still, with just the leg extension this is a huge improvement. Unfortunately he's still a floppy mess. Need to drastically tighten the hips, and this improved mode requires ankle swivel to truly be stable.

Takara Designer Teases New CW Blastoff - Cybertron.CA - Canadian Transformers News and Discussion
Not to say this is a surprise at all, what with the whole Groove thing. I'm just glad there's a bit more substance to the general vibe of a proper shuttle for Blast Off now.
Yuki continues to have fun with UW-02 Menasor.
I actually kinda like that
Added Blackjack in his alt transformation to Menasor
If Yuki twisted Breakdown and Wildrider around, it would be perfect.
Not a fan of the limb bots' arms being unpegged to hold weapons, but turning the leg bots sideways in the combined configuration is interesting. Too bad there's no knee articulation (at least in the right direction) when they're combined that way.
Looking forward to the UW Menasor gift set! Really liking what Takara did with Motormaster, especially!
I would love to see a Menasor that can pull off the anime arms look someday.
Cant wait for Menozuru!
This is what I think the true spirit of Combiner Wars was all about.
