    That is a very very striking set, I have to admit.

    I think I'd still be up for buying a Victorion based on the colours originally shown as opposed to production. The head sculpt on the combiner still has me in awe, it was/is gorgeous.

    All the best

    I actually prefer the muted colors Victorion had at release to the neon mockups of her reveal.

    The rust theme comes out much better that way.

    I like Victorion with the more muted colors, but I loved the initial renders with the bright, bright teal and red (but then, I like the G2 color schemes for all their '90s bright neon awesomeness, so I might be in the minority there). Either way she needs some grey or white to break up the color scheme a bit.

    For a color scheme listed as "cyan/red/white" in the voting, there really isn't much white, and the cyan is more a sea foam green.

    Nice. I did the exact same thing with the head, I also swapped out the chest for UW Bruts, I like the silver chest more for bruticus and found the brown more fitting for Bludgeon Mayhem/Maximus.

    Side note to all that I moded the Thunderwing head to fit on galvatronus as I think it makes a way more Thunderwing like body.

    Thanks.

    I actually changed up the Baldigus pic between the two threads as I'm still messing around with it trying to nail down my preferred torso transformation.

    In this pic I think this Scourge looks better than the new TR mould.

    This is quite unfortunate... I just happened upon the subject today and now it seems someone stole parts of my CW toys. Nobody I know has them in their possession and there's nobody who would be interested in this kind of thing, so it must have been those people that passed by a while back. What did they take?

    The whole of my Menasor's hand/foot/guns and three more Autobot ones along with Breakdown, Dragstrip and Dead End's weapons... You can't make this shit up, they stole just enough to render one of my Combiners inert. They didn't make way with more for whatever reason.

    I'm going to have to remove the figures from which they were taken from my collection count because their functions are neutered. I can't find a way to recover the parts, too.

    I wish that I had come here to talk about how awesome my Hound is or something, but this is some major league bad news.

    Don't let them stop you from appreciating the awesomeness of CW which is the part of the Trilogy that is the Golden Age of TF collecting! You can get the PE hands/feet for your combiners, they double up as weapons as well. If 3P is not your style, you can find the hand/foot/guns very cheaply online, because a lot of people bought the PEs and don't need the official HFGs anymore.

    And Hound is still awesome, even when uncombined. Because CW.
