    I’ve been waiting on my set A from ShowZ since it shipped on July 8th. My guess is ports everywhere are slowed down due to the epidemic. ShowZ might be waiting to ship because of that or it’s entirely possible that the China shutdown has stopped these from even getting to ShowZ

    So putting them next to Constructor, I was wrong and you guys were right that the colors are a bit too bright. On their own I love them, and I still love them next to Constructor, though they aren't a perfect color match. I love the little alt mode Constructicons at his feet. Excessive scale effect but it feels good. :)  Thinking about having him palm one of the bots from the second set when they arrive.

    I should wait for MS set 2 especially to see Scavenger and Hook how will they look like.

    OK I know this is probably old news and not important to anyone else, but I just got my NewAge Bonecrusher and Scavenger set, opened it up, SUPER stoked for Bonecrusher as I'm a Huge Bonecrusher fan (see my profile) and what the heck? They've gone and painted the sides of his legs purple!? :mad: 
    This wasn't the deal here! Box art and pre-order pics show 100% green legs (as they damn well should be).
    Now I'm super peed off! Thanks a lot NewAge!
    Gotta try and remove that damn purple paint without damaging the figure, sigh...

    There might be an EX set coming with the green treads. You could wait for confirmation of that set and maybe sell yours off.

    Still so torn! I usually prefer Newage over Magic Square, and for the most part feel that the premium price is justified on most of their releases, but seeing as both offerings are close in price for each individual 2-pack, the fact that in order to combine the Newage set cost an additional $70 (give or take) ends up being something that still bugs me. :horse:

    On one hand I agree - The deco change was probably so late in the game that nothing could be changed, which sucks.
    As I understand, it was changed for final look of the combined mode? Not sure.

    Anyway, on the other hand - I actually like his purple sided legs, it gives him a sort of "trackpants" sort of look that I find amusing.

    I suspect that green treads Bonecrusher still exist but they've decided to use it for G1 version and for that I'd like also Mixmaster with green drum,would be the best choice after seeing G1 face. I'd like that also these would be sold in 3 packages althoug is difficult and a boxset would be cheaper.

    Because set A doesn’t have to worry about the combiner mode. You put them in vehicle mode and then they peg into the combiner body. So there was no compromises.

    Set B needs to be a Robot, Truck and legs.

    Set C still needs to go into a combiner configuration to tab into the combiner body.
