    You know I am surprised no one has even mentioned how much Alpha Bravo looks like Blast Off in altmode,I mean that nose section at the front,the cockpit windows and just the long rounded fuselage is all classic Blast Off.the only thing different is the tail section and wings instead of helicopter rotors.

    But as has been pointed out many times most but not all of the CW Line have clear generic transformations and alt modes,like Alpha Bravo has similarities of Slingshot,Blades,Blastoff,and Vortex. Dragstrip is another example of generics with hints of Mirage,and Crasher from the Gobots.And just so many others,so my point is do you think Hasbro did them like this to make them easier to retool or not to retool them at all? or just straight repaint them,surely they plan to retool them.I am just saying.

    I hope so. I'd love to what they'd with more paint apps on the Optimus Prime mold.

    Powerglide is clearly superior to his DOTM Cyberverse toy.
    Windcharger though......pffffff......his RTS toy is still the better.

    I am really excited to get Superion. Does anyone think that a 3P will make some upgrade sets?

    For the example, better hands, guns, etc.

    I got Combiner Wars Superion to stack up with my GG. I hope it'll looks right.

    Green Giant is very much in scale with Superion. I didn't get any pics, but Ramrider stood his GG next to Superion, and they looked awesome together.

    It would make him too floppy. I've combined SB's gun and shield to OP's gun and fully outstretched it flops Superions arm at the elbow, so a full combiner weight on the deluxe arms wouldn't hold.

    Will most definitly be getting all of the bots for Superion. But I am debating about the Stunticons.. (I have the FP version. So I am up in the air)

    I'm getting my CW figures tomorrow! Sooo happy.

    Though my happiness is always limited by the possibility... a STRONG possibility of, whatever the current gimmick is, Hasbro will limit compatibility of it to withing that year's line. We've seen it happen on almost every TF function aside from 5mm fist holes, which has survived line-wide since Armada, barring a good chunk of movie figures. We've even seen the 3mm clip system fade away to just maybe a teensy hint on one or two figures per year since 2010(I think it was Tankorr and Jhiaxus this year?) Edit: Minicons were here since Armada as well, same compatibility through the years barring random exceptions.

    Considering that, I sincerely hope the combining system introduced here survives longer than the Combiner Wars banner. To see it in every G1-style combiner going forward, maybe not, but waiting for Hasbro to settle on a unified system of such quality as this is the biggest reason I'm still collecting.

    Awesome, you guys are making the wait even more difficult!

    I ordered at BBTS because I was able to get Silverbolt on his own. TFS lost my order because they force you to buy that craptimus prime with it. Unfortunately I still had to buy Dragstrip with the other 3 limbs. Can't wait to get the proper limb for Superion. Which one am I missing again?
