    So, will these guys require extra parts to form the combined mode? From all the pics it sure looks like it, unfortunately.

    Huh, apparently the final deco replaces the "Excavator" and "Bulldozer" markings with a more generic "MTC co." label.

    This for me.

    They have little trailers that attach to the arm figures. These trailers in tern become the forearms and hands for Giant.

    I think you have to boil Bonecrusher's plow to get it to turn black...

    I like that even the other 3rd Party is called Neckbreaker ;)

    I don't think it's floaty. The photographer just didn't take the care to make sure that the parts were properly aligned.

    "Scavenger"'s head isn't fully tucked into the back of his cab, either.


    These guys turned out really nice, from the looks of it. I'll happily add these guys to my collection alongside Herc, probably ignoring the combined mode (don't think it turned out as nicely as Herc), and treating them as a team of civilian Autobots or something.

    i think it looks solidly pegged in the forward position, but sitting near the rear it's not. we'll definitely see.

    i will get the green or SG version of these. not the yellow though.

    Looks good to me, just not a fan of yellow. :) 

    Bring on the green!

    I think the Yellow and extra detail are nice.

    However, that said, it makes it look like the ol KO Constructicons I always pass over at Walgreens and Rite Aid, LoL.

    Man, can't wait for the green repaints!
