    So I'm looking to sell some of my Combiner Wars stuff, but I'm not sure if I have all the accessories. Is there anywhere that shows a comprehensive list with pictures of what comes with certain sets or figures? I'm trying to make sure I have all the guns mostly.

    So glad I got this guy and didn't miss out. I'd be kicking myself eternally.

    And here's me kicking myself because I never did pick this up! I wish I'd gone in for a couple of the Unite Warriors sets as they were pretty cool.

    Glad I managed to get a UW Computron (with both PE upgrade kits) for a decent price on Ebay early last year, its my favourite of all the combiners I did get, but Bruticus was my 2nd favourite and the Ruination redeco looked really sweet.

    Scrapper is the best Constructicon. He's also the only one of the CW/UW Constructicons that has a good robot mode.

    The Baldigus Dangar torso does lock in, but it's not that strong, it works fine in robot mode and as a static arm but don't expect him to hold any weapons in combined arm form. Besides, most of the time you'll probably have in Flight Mission mode anyway.

    The orange paint on Dolrailer is quite thin. I'm also always very careful when transforming to torso mode to avoid scratching the Baldigus head and the surrounding paint.

    The back legs of Onslaught and Dolrailer have a slight mold difference. Onslaught has a channel for the peg while Dolrailer closes up that channel, forcing a slight panel flex during transformation.

    Shuttler's head and shuttle nose pieces pop off way too easily until you learn the specific steps and the exact amount of force to use.

    Other than that Baldigus is fantastic. The paint really stands out. As combiner limbs there have definitely been some improvements, for example I noticed that the combiner port on Hepter is significantly thicker than Vortex.

    Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I check the combiner ports of all my figures after combination, especially Vortex and Rippersnapper.

    CW Bruticus is probably my favorite combiner once you give him some upgrade love.

    Nice! Suits better than the usual PE kits.

    Where did you get the Hands/Feet upgrades. I came late to the combiners and missed most of the upgrades.
