    Is there any 3rd Party company, that will do bigger feet for a better stand?

    if you are having issues or think you have done something wrong, just refer to the resource section of this site or look at reviews on youtube. doing research is always best before making a rash decision that you hate a figure on transformation alone.

    yeah this one is really close. only thing I see wrong is the arms on skydive aren't right. they are meant to tab under the wings.

    I can`t put my finger on it, just don`t like it that much.

    Maybe the size or the horns...something looks off to me...first world problems, I guess :)

    are you talking about menasor? I thought you were talking about superion. superions head is great but if you are talking about menasor then yes I agree something isn't right with it.

    Menasor's horns are, historically, straight horns that come out diadonally. The new CW Menasor horns have a bend in them (roughly half way) which makes them 'curved'(?).

    I must be the only one that prefers the simplistic transformations of the CW figures so far. I don't want to spend an hour going between 4 modes for each bot. I love that in a minute or less a leg can become an arm, a robot, or a jet. That's why the CW figures are the best combiners ever, imho.

    I don't like the Prime/Motormaster mold at all, IMO Superion is by far the most successful of what we've seen so far.

    Fully agree!

    ....and I own some 3rd party combiners.

    But there is something fun about not having to set aside an entire afternoon just to see it in a different mode. lol

    I agree as well. I don't mess with the more complicated ones either. I like to 'keep it simple' as the down easterners say. nothing against the ones that do like them. just not my personal thing.
