    Ye i thought about it. But then realised it costs as much as the combiner. Plus i like c customs better.

    Quick and dirty pic, if you want better you'll have to wait until tomorrow. I poised him for you, usually he's just standing straight up cause the PE feet are trash. The KOs I use on most of the other combiners and they've held up fantastically but I'm using an official PE on Defensor and they let him topple over due to the ball joints (same with a regular CW combiner, ball joints are just a bad idea). I'm actually thinking of using the Hasbro Computron feet on him (painted black with accent colors) just to have him better poised normally.

    None, they're all made for the regular CW port. I used nylon tape to thicken up the post on mine to use regular CW limbs with the OS one.

    theres really no point , they are already titan sized, but ones like regular combiner wars defensor and arialbots are way too small compared to devastator and now predaking , so it would make sense to OS them so they can stand up against the titan sized combiners ( which are in better scale IMO) if anything they still need to give us all the parts to form menasor

    WJ probably just hasn't gotten access to the design files on any of this stuff. It's far easier to upscale something using the cad file than it is to reverse engineer from an actual toy.

    welcome, CCB also have Defensor and Bruticus as well. However the WJ Oversized Defensor is AMAZING though in my opinion. all are like 35-45 for the set. WJ OS is like 70$

    I should've had patience and waited for the cbb ones after Bruticus and Defensor. They are well made. But I suspect they're a hair smaller than Hasbro. Like mm, which is good for some tolerances on 3rd party feet and hands.

    Actually it would make more sense to downsize Devy and Predaking, because they are way too big compared to the other combiners. And the individual bots of the other combiners are at a way better size compared to ordinary bots.
    Razorclaw never towered over Kup in the toon.

    If someone wants the OS pieces to make defensor almost 18 inches tall, you can have it for 30$

    I got this made by the guy on this topic. I waited weeks and weeks for this, I'm disappointed by it. I'm not a customizer, so I dont know how to make it look better or function better. I think maybe somebody would be interested in these pieces. I accidentally broke one of the pieces because it was difficult to place the hip pieces. If you need pictures of the 3d printed stuff please message me.

    So right before Christmas, I ordered on ebay what I thought was just going to be a blue recolor of Rook, and when he arrived yesterday, I was stunned by his size and quality. (That's what she said.)

    This is as good or better as any Hasbro figure at this price point I've laid hands on in the past decade.

    I'm actually considering getting enough to make an oversized combiner for my desk at work. I LOVE this figure.

    I did a little research, and I now see it's made by Weijang, which explains the quality.

    Does anyone know how to get the OS defensor molds. I know there is no groove but is there anywhere I can get the other 4 by themselves or as a set. As much as I like the rook mold I don’t really care for it that much

    Thanks
