    Sorry for the late response...
    Both packages came in those styrofoam mini coolers. Set C had its own case, with them in robot mode and individually bubble wrapped. Set A and B were in the 2nd package, in robot mode, and not wrapped, just tossed in. Which was a little unnerving at first sight, but I suppose there isn't enough room left for them to get enough momentum to really bounce around. No scuffs or damage, just a couple combiner fingers floating around and one of those tiny hinges off Mixmaster's front bumper. Again, unsettling, but all pieces were accounted for upon transformation and assembly. I hope that helps.

    The reports of him being floppy are a bit disappointing since JBs bruticus was better than warbotron in every way (at least my respective copies)

    Not to double-dip on posts, but I feel like those questioning/complaining about posing this big guy missed these pics. I have him lunging forward and general gestures of menacing. I'm not sure if he's realistically expected to go beyond this? I feel like for his height and weight, he's damn good and solid.

    If you feel like you might want it, just buy it. Remind yourself you're saving $450 over the smaller original.

    Dude...that grey bot in his hand...could you take a better picture of him?


    He looks like a figure I had back as a kid, and I'm curious as to whether it is or not.

    It's one of these. Got them in a junker lot, and I have never seen these before.

    Looks like something from Super Dimensional Century Orguss.

    Yes, I definitely had one of those as a kid, thank you!

    So Super Dimensional Century Orguss huh? Never heard of it, but I freaking loved that one toy I had, and have often wondered what line it went to so I could try to find it again. :lol

    Check out www.showzstore.com It's about $30 per bot including shipping + u get points.

    Haven't heard of any constructor qc issues on the last couple releases since the g2 yellow came out. Maybe I missed something..

    Okay, I'm a bit behind the curve here, but I decided to make a trial plunge on this set by ordering Set A, and seeing how much I like them before committing to the rest of the combiner. (Also, I need to see if I can swap the treads so the combined form has symmetrical ones, it's going to bug me if they aren't.) Are there any notable QA issues on the arms bots that I should watch out for?

    You're much closer to it than me and will definitely have more knowledge in regards to quality/reliability. Most of my experience comes from reading the Constructor thread and seeing issues people bring up from time to time. It seems that the combined mode is usually pretty solid, but there are some issues with the individual bots at times. At $350 (for toon green only), these issues would probably not bother me though.

    Also, I fixed that pinky finger :)

    I need Jinbao to do the GT G1 upgrade kit for this as justification on doubling down. Mainly the thighs. Wonderful bot. He is my stylized Devy.

    I think an Autobot combiner should be next. Defensor2.png

    Hahaha! You are very observant. Both are exactly what happened. It’s the ONLY shelf left. I have my Autobots on one, Dinobots on another, and my Voltrons on the top. My space dictates my collecting. Once the space is gone I can finally relax lol.

    Three days shy of a month, my set C finally arrived yesterday as I was walking out the door to go to work.


    The ordeal is finally over.

    This is about how long mine took as well. I chalked it up to the holiday season.
