    The alt modes of the Deluxe Combiner Wars Aerialbots look pretty nice, especially the jets!

    Superion looks pretty good with white hands and feet.

    I hope this is the right thread to put this. I have yet to get any of the toys but I can appreciate the look of them and other bits of engineering. I fully look forward to getting them, particularly Optimus Prime with its perk of a Generations update of his signature G1 blaster.
    For a while now, I have been curious about something. Has anybody tried out the new Prime's compatibility with recent guns designed for recent Primes? Like the path blaster with Cybertronian Sideswipe, First Edition Prime Optimus', etc.

    Well the first edition prime's gun doesn't work. CW Prime's hands are set low, so his forearm sticks really high up over it. So any gun that has something sticking out behind the handle won't fit in his hand. Unless it has a really long handle like the guns he comes with.

    It's a tiny bit fussy, though... the forearm and shoulder have to be rotated just perfectly for those little tabs to click into those gray slots. But they do.

    As soon as Devastator comes out I want to make a poll.

    By watching this clip and comparing the toys; who is better Decepticon combiner; G1 series and toy.

    Bruticus
    Devastator
    Menasor

    G1 Menasor is what I grew up with so he's still my favorite combiner.

    yes, there are lil indentations on the shoulder that are cleared out to make with the corner of the front cab, you have to turn the shoulder to line THAT up 1st, then it can click in.

    Hey man.... thanks for the purchase ;) 

    Ok so can you go into more detail as to how you made those feet? I know you mentioned the Kre-o sets....but I haven't been able to make sense of the entire process yet.

    Do any of you think CW Breakdown looks a lot like a Lambor without any alterations? I wonder what the company would say.
