    Anyone think they will do a G2 giftset for Defensore like they did with the other CW combiners or should I just go for the separate figures? (I still see some places selling the CW Protectobot figures.)

    It is looking unlikely, but you never know what may happen.

    I'm really hoping so. It just feels so incomplete glancing over to my robot-table-desk thing and only seeing the other G2 gestalts(Technically I still need G2 Bruticus, but semantics~).

    I'm such a combiner groupie and a big fan of G2, I'd snap that set up in a hot minute!

    It's tempting to speculate that since the original g2 reissue was cancelled, they may not do this. But maybe it has more to do with lack of time on the schedule or something. Maybe they might be waiting for combiners to partially return in PW3 to put out the set? (assuming rumors hold that pw3 will be a mix of combiners and head masters with a beast theme, also allowing older pieces from Pw 1 and 2 to be put out.)

    The seemingly slow sales of the other G2 sets probably has helped in putting this on the back burner for now.

    Then again, maybe they were waiting for the deluxe Groove to come out first and well see it at next year's Toy Fair.

    I hope so, CW Liokaiser can't be the last CW/Unite Warriors Combiner can he? I collected all of the other G2 sets and would gladly buy a CW G2 Defensor set.

    Considering the other Collection Packs have been heavily discounted by Hasbro Toy Shop and Amazon, I don't see much of a change for more.

    I want one so bad, but I've seen several times on here that Liokaiser is scheduled as the last CW release, at least for the time being, and I really don't see it changing. He might show up as a stupid expensive convention release somewhere down the line, but that's probably our best hope.

    I think if it was going to happen, it would have happened by now.

    Sounds unlikely to me based on the awful sales of those sets. It's poetic though. Maybe G2 Defensor will elude us forever.
