    Yeah that works a lot better LMAO, wanted on my end originally to try to sprinkle those couple gimmes from FT like the whole Cyclonus floor polish thing, but yeah in retrospect it seemed like padding that didn't help as much as I thought.

    This is why I personally think Zeta had it sussed. The ease of use was the best part about them as a set. No over-complicated design - just clip on here, here, here and here and done. XTB by the look of it (without actually having had one in person to mess with) have made it too complex. DX9 pretty much have done the best job (again without actually having one in hand) as far as I can tell. Emgo shows that the hardware / ratchets in the legs were way too tight, which caused him a pretty severe break.

    I do hope FT can top DX9's and incorporate the trailer into a transforming skeleton, as per the plan, but I wouldn't have been disappointed with a Zeta approach. For Superion and any future combiners Zeta's way is probably the best way to go for me. There's no shame in it. And to get the scale required so they all match up it just seems the most sensible and logical way to do it.

    I'm still team no transforming skeleton. It will be cheaper and sturdier.

    Strongly agree. Don't compromise the frame with a useless attempt at a transformation. XTB did it and it was a disaster.

    Yeah, if they bump up against any issue at all, just lose all the transforming. Just gimme a luscious parts forming torso with the sweetest sturdiest ratchets, paint and poseablilty and I'll be all good. Better to lean toward Zeta than XTB.

    As much as the x-transbots one annoys me I liked that the trailer was the combiner. I do agree with it not being sturdy but I think that's more to do with the wedged in base mode, I think without that the trailer would have worked better. Fans toys stunticons are heavier than x-transbots so a frame would be a safer bet for a posable combiner.
