    Beautiful stuff.

    That gun storage looks a little tight with the helicopter blades running right by them, but I’m sure it’ll be easy to navigate once the toy is in hand.

    Looks very nice. Was it mentioned what the combined size will be?

    I hope all the upgrade parts (if any) we need will be included with one of the team members.

    A little disappointed to see them using the same combiner shoulder connector joint as Assaultus. I found that the one on Assaultus did not lock in very well, and would often loosen/open entirely when I posed the arms. I guess that has more to do with the shoulder locking mechanism on the torso-bot, though, so maybe this one will lock in more securely.

    Guess the same as their Bruticus, so not very big.

    Defensor doesn't have nearly the difference between toon and toy, as Bruticus does. I wouldn't expect there to even be anything really worth making. Maybe a toy-version combined head? (I'd love an alternate toy-version HotSpot head)

    On the other hand this means that we can cross use combiner limbs. Almost scramble city style!

    I received Fraudo, Impetus and Optus Pexus around the same time. They were my introduction to MMC/OX. Consider me a big fan of their build quality, transformations, and overall fun factor.

    Defensor was never on my radar. Not from any company. However, if they are going to continue with the quality I've experienced so far I think I may have to break down an order this set.

    i want these for bot modes. For me combining is a bonus.
    I havent gotten all the combaticons yet but it sounds like that arm connections isnt great? But if i leave it in combined, im hoping zeta comes along for the protectochaps
    I love how they did the chopper blades. Have to go back and watch the cartoon but imagine it comes from that.

    I'm guessing the black windows we see in the render, will be separate smoked plastic like Impetus/Vortex, and the others that are "just outlined" in the render (sides of fuselage, underside of nose maybe) will be painted on. So heli mode will look quite a bit better with just the windows added on in the final version.

    I think yeah it’s more a problem on the torso shoulder piece. The replacement part that came with brawl holds really fuckin well. Stupidly strong. So hopefully they’ll keep making sturdier ones.
    It’s something around 49cm. Can’t remember if that’s to the head or the cannons.

    What these guys are doing is incredible.

    I will get the future re-releases as gift sets, that's for sure (if they are made). As of now, and as expensive as this year is shaping up to be, I get to hold off.
