    DNA DESIGN
    DK-49 SS-99.SS-101.SS-104 UPGRADE KITS
    ESTIMATED RELEASED DATE 4/3

    DK-49's design was initially centered around complete transformation and storage. Due to suggestions from fans, DNA designed the iron chain and weapon for SS-99, the overall arm and shoulder for SS-102, and the enlarged wings and weapon for SS-104.

    DNA has independently conceived a weapon storage pattern, and we hope that everyone will find it appealing!

    So gap fillers, a gun for Battletrap, swords and wings for Nightbird, and a normal hand for Scourge which ralistically should've been included with the other kit they did for him. Probably gonna be £50.

    I mean it looks nice, but I'm not really convinced I need it. I have their Scourge upgrade set on pre-order, and that sorts out the biggest issues with the figure for me. I don't need upgraded shoulders or an alternative left arm. I'm not that pushed on Battletrap's gattling guns either, and I'll be giving mine the chain from Primal anyway. And I'm sure someone else will come out with a pair or at least a second sword for Nightbird that'll be much cheaper. Those new wings, while bigger, still don't look that much more impressive than the stock ones.

    Unless it only ends up costing around $25, which I don't think is likely, this one is definitely a pass for me.

    What I feel is absurd right now is that Scourge's shoulder has changed, it is smaller than the SS version and it can transform? How the hell can it transform, and where is the rest of its big shoulder?????

    I wish they tossed those new shoulders into the last kit, but at least I have Battletrap. Anyone who has Nightbird wanna split?

    The large shoulder part is attached directly to the wheel. When transforming into robot mode, the two shoulder parts will follow the wheel and be fixed behind the back, which is why they took a strange photo of Scourge's back part.

    I like the set for nightbird and battletrap but if the shoulders can transfom without parts forming that'd be awesome since that and the scourge kit would fix most my problems with him. I see what theyre going for i just need to see better pictures of what theyre doing with the old shoulders.

    I like this, very content-packed set and fixes a lot of the issues with the original figures.

    Still wishing for a Legacy Leo Prime set.

    Nice combo, while I don't think Scourge parts are needed. I hope price is not crazy.

    Interesting! I was thinking all this time that they should have just done one kit for the whole team. Is this the first time they've done two kits for the same figure? Scourge is gonna look so amazing with both kits on. I really want the wings for Nightbird and the shoulders for scourge the most out of this kit. It's a real shame they didn't do anything about battletrap's arms (they need improvement in both modes) but aside from that he's a solid enough figure.

    Fairly confused on how the Scourge shoulders are supposed to cram into alt mode because the shoulder joint parts not sitting flush kinda bug me

    Otherwise everything else is needed

    Okay I need this. The absolute fuckery they seemed to have pulled with Scourge's shoulders is impressing me more than it should

    I'm a bit pissed off that they didn't include these Scourge parts in the previous Scourge upgrade set as I want them but have absolutely no use for the other parts.

    Pretty sure the new shoulders are partsforming, if that bothers anyone.

    He could have used those weird slab stacks that are on his chest but other than that I'm glad I don't have to replace the upgrades I gave him

    Love the kit but uuuuh that’s not even remotely what scourge’s left arm looked like in the film.

    I was gonna say, it doesn’t fix the toy.

    Battletrap getting his gun is cool, but I think I’m satisfied with the earlier Scourge kit.
