    Decided to bite the bullet and buy Liokaiser. I mean, at the price he's going for he should be more than worth it for how many figures I'm getting even though I have no attachment to this combiner or his components (getting a mismatched set of Superiorn and Menasor components from BBTS was the comparison option, and I'm like, meh to that).

    And, if worse comes to worst, I can give all the limbs to Starscream with no regrets.

    (that, and I stealth bought Slugslinger on top of that because I realized I was never going to get him on retail, but that's off topic)

    i just nabbed him of entertainment earth as well for $64...as with you i didn't feel i was gonna find him for much cheaper but unlike you i was getting this set for limbs and minicon more than deathsaurus. i don't feel the mold fits him and i still don't. however as of now i'm planning on using the limbs for potp starscream when he arrives next week.

    i like the jets in fact they were a main selling point to me especially hellbat and i had a similar issue with drillhorn as you did. but all in all i like the set...even more liked the price i paid. i also never had this micron mold so that was cool to fiddle with.

    i feel takara waited till now and he'll show up in UW possibly with starscream as leozack and beachcomber as jallguar (or a new legends class that becomes a weapon...pipe dream i'm sure but still) so i don't mind double dipping for a better torso if or when takara releases him.

    i love the head sculpts though. i'd recommend him for the price i paid but not for what BBTS is asking for him or ebay prices. and if you're not sold on the torso the limbs are still good and for EEs price i'm willing to have a spare torso hanging about.

    Oh that is cool as hell adding Bumble bee to that chest armor!
    .... Is there a 5mm hole that the posts are going into on him some where or is he just hanging on the posts someway.

    We got the G2 Menasor set and honestly blackjack in combined mode is a massive disappointment since he wont stay on AT ALL.. He LOOKS incredible up there he just falls off if the gestalt even leans forward a TINT bit in his pose.

    I guess I will take some time the next time I get free to play and try all the different legends guys to see who I can get on there like you did with Bee.

    I was just thinking this weekend I would really like a deluxe Bumble bee that is a CW/POTP style combiner limb.. in fact it would be cool to get all of the original Mini bots as deluxes so they scale with the CW classic Autobot carbots so while I'm dreaming an easy way to accomplish that would be a box set of minibots made from CW POTP repaints as their own combiner. Image if the CW Optimus prime mold was say pipes or Huffer, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper ( both from s reshel of one of the CW car molds probably the Prowl/ Streetwise/ Stunticon mold) Windcharger ( Reshell of the Sunstreaker/ Wheel jack mold ) and Brawn ( from the ratchet closed campershell version of the Off Road/ iron hide mold) were the limbs... make up an all new Combiner head character and give him mass shifting powers in universe to explain everything going back to the G1 first year mini bots..

    I used a lot of Pledge Future on Motoromaster's pegs and Blackjack's hole to get them to stay.
