    I overall like the art. The colors wouldn't be bad if they broke it up more with some neutrals. Love Pyra the most tho.

    Again, I pose the question of what do you not hate?

    There hasn't been a fully female combiner since Super Link, and we chose female because, hey, we haven't had a Scramble City-style female combiner yet.

    No one's telling you to buy it, dude.

    Not for me, ugly colors, ugly headsculpts and stupid fan-fictiony backstory.

    Well, they were the results of a fan-made poll created by Hasbro, after all.

    Well Ya that's true, and the last fanbot, Windblade, didn't do it for me either.

    I respect your opinion not to like certain characters, like Windblade or the Torchbearers.

    Thank you, I too, respect others opinions, even if they are different from mine.

    Ya know, swap the blue with orange, fix the headsculpts, and drop the fan fiction aspects, then you would have a nice combiner.

    It would have to be the right shade of orange or the colors would ooze together from afar.

    Love the weapons. <--- just wanted to point that out.

    I really dig Victorion a ton! But I've been questioning the color scheme. I had some thoughts to share and quick photoshops.

    De-saturate either the reds or the teal... they both can't be at full saturation it hurts the eyes. More white is great. White creates areas of rest instead of the current checkerboard of red/teal/red/teal. IMO

    Think along the lines of deep orange, like say Tahu:

    The orange and red are distinct, and the black helps break up the color scheme. After all, these are the "torchbearers" wouldn't a fire-like scheme be more fitting than a Preceptor-like one?

    Sadly this is the reason I want it, that and the fact its the first fanbuilt combiner and female combiner.

    Please, quickly go and get a job at Hasbro, and when you're there, make sure we get your colour schemes on the Victorion set!
    Seriously, thats so much better!

    Okay Sea of Rust, Victorion and the limits of 4 color printing.

    Here's some rusted iron:

    Here's some rusted copper:

    I think I see what they were TRYING for, but it just didn't work.

    That would have been so much better the rusted iron colour.
