    Yo keep me posted on this..I really want to see this guy review the combine mode myself..Generation toys learned a lot from their take on the stunticons..I was expecting parts of the truck would be set aside for bot mode and later used for combine mode....The transformation looks ten times easier than power trains...Great find and thanks

    I found these pics I took awhile back. GT bots scale really well each other.

    No worries. I'm also waiting for his follow up video. He said in the current video that he won't make us wait too long for the combined video, but it's been more than 1 month, and Hotspot will be released soon. Hopefully others will do a video as well.

    MMC has yet to deliver a prototype and everyone is arguing over the color XTB Groove's arms should be.

    Meanwhile, I've Motor on the way with GT's Sideswipe cow.

    Update: Terry's refunded Groove and is sold out of him now, but did send cow Sideswipe.

    Ordered him from Baba now, although they once did something similar to me with a part of TFC Liokaiser.

    They always the backup/last resort +cause of that shipping cost).

    Although, I went for the higher EMS option on Baba anyway.

    Have heard (from Terry's, funnily enough) the cheaper e-packet method has been having a lot lost items and/or stops in tracking.

    It's the 21st century, where the #[email protected]& are Star Trek transporters already?

    Tch, now listed as sold out on Baba too, though they haven't cancelled the order yet.


    Did pick Sergeant too. He's supposed to be the Japanese version.

    He's coming with Fanproject Echara. There's an odd pairing.

    Hopefully final update for the legbots

    Groove finally shipped from Baba

    Streetwise w/Japanese deco had shipped from Robotoybase (his would have been shipping companion is another story)

    We'll see if I can afford/pick up the armbots before we hopefully finally get Hotspot by the end of the year.

    I hope this will be released in time for Christmas, as this is supposed to be my wifes gift to me... but then I've said that for the last 2 or 3 Christmases as well.

    ShowZ says that the releasedate is still unknown, last time I checked. So let's hope it comes this year!

    I just received my order from TFSafari for Sarge and ended up getting the Japanese version even though the website said it was the English/US version. I contacted them and they said the manufacturer only has Japanese version so I can’t do a switch. Does anyone know if there are any replacement parts out there that I could buy for the doors and sirens so they are the US version? It’s the only one out of the group not in English.

    Watching the transformation for Hot-spot, and I just can't help but zero in on that massive panel behind the cab that just detaches. It just....detaches. Seems supremely below GT's par as far as good transformations go. Anyone know if the part gets used elsewhere?

    Is there a transformation video other than the stop motion combiner video?

    I cant tell what is happening with that panel in that one.

    No worries. You just reminded me that it's been 2 months since the video was released, and still no combined mode video that the reviewer promised he would do. Not trusting this guy anymore LOL.

    It might cost you shipping to send it back. How about trying to get some stickers instead?

    Was looking for some as an option, but most are the water slide decals. Not sure they have the white background to hide the Japanese print. Also, the siren is just red, not red&blue. It bugs me looking at it.
