    Yeah, much as I love how Gravity Builder looks and would grab this set if I had the money, scale is ultimately what pushed me to buy Hercules instead, since he scales well with CW combiners (at least if you've got the hand and feet upgrades.

    I'd be more likely to buy this figure if it was priced at $300 instead of $400. It's just too close to the price for Toyworld Constructor.

    This looks really good, in regards to price people have to remember the GT bots are 100% better quality than the TW bots. These have more integrated parts, more paint and better plastic. My TW bots felt cheap, looked cheap and had cracked plastic on one of them.

    The combiner form more than makes up for those shortcomings and GT can't win on that front in terms of shelf presence and look. Not that the GT combiner form is bad in anyway, I actually like all the real world details it has.

    Where can you preorder this cheapest? I want to check my options. I do like the metallic one and I am selling the original one with the upgrade kit.

    Alright, THIRD mod warning is the charm.
    Knock off the off-topic nonsense. Please.

    Looking at all these images of the boxset I'm not seeing:
    • Leg extensions (showing on the box art only)
    • The new style combiner head
    • The closed mouth expression for the old head
    • The different style head for hook
    • The different style head for Scavenger
    • The melee weapons that came with the yellow set
    • The drill hands for the combiner
    Not good! Don't suppose there's a way to confirm if these are included since GT nuked their social media?

    I got a KO version of this just last month, and I love it, but each bot is roughly the size of Siege Optimus, so, yeah, they\'re bigger than a CW combiner. I don\'t have any personal complaints about that, though, because Devastator will always be the premiere combiner in my eyes. Heck, I don\'t even remember the other ones from when I was watching the show, so I\'m glad he\'s bigger and badder.

    That's something I'm wondering about, looking forward to getting inhand confirmation that these parts are present! Most of this (apart from the melee weapons) were present for the black version I understand? But none of it is shown in any promo pics for this reissue. I really want to give GT my money over this mold if possible.

    I truly wish they upgrade kit had come out without having the weapons removed. That bugged me as I really wanted those.

    Pantsformers are cheaper for a reason, their only good mode is the "combined mode". Everything else tends to be underwhelming.

    Well 400 dollars later, no this comes out when I already have a bigger one now. However this does look good. In addition the figures are going to be taller than the original GT crew. Further, looks like GT has made some improvements on QC in the combine mode. I am on the fence on getting this one or retiring my current Gravity builder.
