    And I believe you are using homage exremely strictly sir. For example the vehicle choices, the shaping of the combined mode torso, and some of the detailing on the bots is very Puzzler-esq ( and very un-Throttlebot). Though it could just be a case of you different eyes see different things.

    This is high on my want list since WB-01. TFC's effort did not scale properly.

    Wow, this looks great! Kind of resembles a hybrid between TFC Prometheus and MT Guardia to me. I'm happy with Guardia but the look of the combined mode here is awesome in its own way.

    Seems a bit stylised but still overall really good, it seems that generation toy has been saving all their reveals for tfcon with both Megatron and this guy being revealed

    They better brighten up that red a lot---"deep blood red" is NOT the color it should be. Blades was so scarlet he was practically orange.

    I don't like First Aid's alt-mode at all. Yes, it's very much a common US ambulance----but they're fugly! First Aid should look like a van, not a "pickup with camper".

    David, what about GT, Warbo, or TFM has ever been G1 accurate?

    They're one of the few groups with any creativity left. Please don't try to ruin another product with your pedantic G1 accuracy notes.

    It's less about accuracy, more about simple aesthetics. I didn't say a word about the other alt modes, because while they all changed too, none are fugly like First Aid is.

    Well, except for saying they "better" change the red to the red of the G1 figure.

    Ah! It looks like Streetwise is a Nissan 350Z (possibly a 370Z but close enough) per his appearance in IDW working alongside Prowl (also a 350Z).

    Hot damn, it's bought if scaled with GT Jazz.

    That's not an alt-mode thing. Plus, it's basically "autobot red" which is a core color that should be adhered to. G1 Optimus, Sideswipe, Cliffjumper, etc, should not be a deep blood red. Nor should any other figure that has "Autobot red" like many of the Protectobots.

    Looks like GT!Defensor's finally been officially revealed. Liking what I'm seeing so far. *Ditches Maximus Pro* Don't need ya anymore. Don't even know if you still exist.

    Would it bee too much to hope for GT to throw in Heatrock and Skyfeather so we could possibly get Gaia Guardian and perhaps God Guardian as well?

    Excellent!

    Am wondering if the GT guys are huge fans of MT? GT Gravity Builder and now GT Guardian do have some design (even name!!) similarities with the MT combiners.

    Not that I'm complaining though, as I've always love MT stylised take on their combiners, just a tad smallish :) 

    Might still double dip on KO OS Guardia while we wait for GT's release. Any news / rumours on ETAs?

    This is looking surprisingly appealing, considering how little I've cared about the other Warbo/IDW-MP combiners. Blades looks rad!
