    All modes suck, flimsy connections, weird proportions and.... the fact that our first retail Elita-1 was on that mold doesn't help.

    What do you mean by the modes "sucking"? Bad poseability? Stuff not tabbing in or holding together well?

    Pretty self explanatory.

    The bot mode proportions were horrendous, it looked like a Fisher Price toy, the jet mode had the awful bot mode just hanging out underneath. I will say that the torso mode was alright, easily the best mode of three but it's not saying much. Top it off with the terrible stickers it came with and you have yourself quite the terrible toy.

    I doubt that Sky Lynx could be retooled in such a way that it would now look like Leozack. Unless you meant something else.

    Eh, if Takara wanted to do a UW Liokaiser, they'd probably forget redecoing Sky Lynx and make their own two bots that combine into a torso mode.

    Shouldn't be impossible considering the lengths they went to make their takes on Defensor, Bruticus, and Computron super-accurate, right?

    Man, all I wanted was for Dai Atlas to be awesome and he sure as Hell is. Sonic Bomber and Road Fire look pretty badass too, but Atlas is so friggin' sweet.

    Atlas is the big draw, the other two are beautiful figures but let's be real we're all here for Atlas.

    To be honest I think Roadfire wears the Twin Twist mold better than Dai Atlas wears the Sky Shadow mold. In particular the original Dai Atlas had these horizontal green stripes on his chest that I find a striking feature, but didn't get duplicated on the new figure. And his arms are plain as opposed to the red accents on the original. I just wish more of the original deco could have been carried over.

    I'm honestly surprised Atlas and co don't have their Micromaster partners. It wouldn't be unusual for Takara to use new stuff with LG-EX releases. Considering the Waverider shell that was gonna come with Grand Max.

    With the extensive remolding on these figures they may have decided to wait on doing their Micromaster partners until they see how well the set sells. Especially since those would likely need a fair amount of remolding as well.

    I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think they might do a three pack of the missing micromasters later on.

    I think they'd just be bundled with the next LG-EX release kinda like how a piece of Convobat came with Magna Convoy.

    I have no connection to the characters but still have this on pre-order just for the fact that they look amazing.
    I just hope they end up on Amazon Japan for less than the BBTS price.
