    It would have to combine. It's the same mold and would probably be more work to remold it to remove the feature. The figure breaks apart to combine with Manus.

    As for release date... Hopefully after CNY. Don't want another Thunder Manus situation.

    I’d like to know about the regular version too. I canceled my preorder for the black deco; I think I wanted it more for the exclusivity rather than actually preferring the deco over the white one (which I don’t). Though I do prefer the black one in vehicle mode though

    I think they will be delayed along with the Premium Striker Manus.

    Maketoys only released two semi moulds last year: the Divine Suit and Divine Shooter. All others were recolors or reissues.

    Hopefully, this year will be a good year for Maketoys.

    Once combined with Manus, I can picture me hanging the remaining Buster torso from Combined Manus's back like Yoda in ESB. Or 3P0 being slung over Chewie's back.

    I'm quirky like that. ;)

    Hm... For those who will own both, I wouldn't mind seeing parts swapped between the black and white versions. White legs and wings on black body and vice versa. Just for curiosity's sake.

    Skywing is similar in height to Thunder Manus. Galvatron will be one head shorter than Skywing, so in between the two sizes.

    I have this guy preordered from the MakeToys shop. Kinda surprised they haven't started shipping their own products yet...

    I was hoping I would be able to pick this up in HK, but ActionRobo will probably be sold out before then.
