    Regardless of the execution, I like the idea of a co.biner team having to haul around some special equipment to combined- it solves the usual problem of extra parts without requiring extra bits to disappear, or be fully integrates like Ocular Max's Bruticus. It would be interesting to see incorporated into some fiction one day, where the combiner upgrade is made so members can integrate with an external combiner kit.

    Well I am quite sure they can (in my country there are some with a "tow ball hitch"). You still provide enough reasons why they shouldn't though...

    I found this image, never mind... It was posted above!

    In the Transformers Victory cartoon, the Road Caesar team almost always carried the combiner bits with them.

    The last two look real good, I've just had trouble pulling the trigger after Katana disappointed.

    I don't have Bulance yet (terrible name btw), but I can tell you that Motor is light years better than Katana. If Bulance turns out to be as good as he looks, I think Katana is going to end up being the outlier in this group. Guess we have to wait until Hot Spot releases to know for sure. Now, Motor isn't perfect; I really hate that tailpipe thing on his arm. But he is a very, very nice figure.

    I love Katana. Dunno what people are going on about.

    (Don't feel the need to explain me).

    Looking forward to finishing this set.

    I just bought Bulance last week, from an ebayer (with 100% feedback) in China, who had it labeled “in stock“. I’m beginning to think it wasn’t.lol No sign of shipping yet....:/

    Oh well. Coulda saved some Dragoncon money.......

    There seemed to be a lot of certainty last week it was coming out right away - maybe some retailers jumped the gun on the availability. Other then the one video posted a couple pages back, I haven't found anything on YouTube for it yet - hasn't made it into any new hands. The wait continues.

    I can't resist a bit of gentle, good-natured poking here..That's a bit like saying "I'm going to dispute what you say, but not be willing to see where you're coming from" (Though keeping things positive is probably best)

    But I definitely agree..I'm looking forward to finishing this set, as well. I might just put a paper bag of katana, though:p  He can be the limb who shall not be named..or..maybe I can pretend Defensor lost an arm in the war.

    Myself, I agree with the general consensus that Katana is the weakest of the set so far, but that hardly makes him a bad figure. I think he looks great, he’s just a bit too fiddly and has some real kibble problems. I didn’t suffer from the bent parts and other similar issues that many others have had but I can easily see how he’s prone to them. Still a good figure and I’m glad I went in on these. I mean, being weaker than Sarge and Motor is nothing to be ashamed of. In a set of 5 figures, one of them has to be the runt, if only by comparison. Copter bots are difficult in general, I think.

    I just wish Bulance would drop!
