    It's nice to see that these figures scale nicely with current (and 2006) deluxes! Thanks for the pictures and review! :) 

    The cards are just re-using the mobile game (Legends) art in all cases with the exception of the new additions (Alpha Bravo, Off-Road, etc).

    Would've made more sense to use the art that's right on the package, though...

    Any chance we could get a picture of or the UPC code from the package. I've been trying to see if the DPCI for Target in the states is different to see if it will make tracking down the CW stuff any easier. Thank you :D

    What does he look like with the head facing backwards over the car's nose? That'll be the biggest clue if a Mirage repaint is plausable....

    Looking on the existing pictures, to me it seems like the kibble will be too much in the way for it to work by turning the head around. A good portion of the head would be blocked visually.

    I'd say the best bet would be to fake it (like Classics Mirage) by using the hips, and possibly the silhouette of the front spoiler behind the hips to achieve a "good enough" effect.

    This last picture shows the bottom segment pivoted up so as to form a shorter lower limb.



    Sorry! I've tossed the package :( 
    I'm sure some fans will be able to snap pictures when they are at the shops.

    Not at the moment. I might pick up Silverbolt but I don't know. Cash is tight at the moment.

    Shot of the combiner knee with the back of Drag's head. As you can see the head is quite simple at the back.
    That being said I think it's easy for Hasbro to retool him for Mirage. Just a straightforward head swap (if they haven't did it already).

    Hmm, assuming Fireflight and Skydive share the same leg transformation, that multi-jointed armature that the legs collapse around looks like it might be able to compress to a "half-way" point between the alt-mode configuration, and the official arm-mode; so it could be possible to approximate something like this, while retaining some rudimentary elbow articulation.

    Still speculation at this point, of course - I remain totally prepared for a "better-proportioned combined mode/with no elbow articulation OR gorilla-armed combined mode/with full elbow articulation" scenario.

    :)

    I'm hoping they'll be able to pull that off as well. The arm modes just seem too long to me, and those gaps bother me as well.

    Honestly quite surprised that my friend's review was posted before I did. Thanks for doing so. I own those figures in said video and sadly they dont collapse halfway.
