    Thanks so much!

    Last necrobump, does anyone have pictures of him with just the echotransformer’s leg extenders on? I want to see if adding them makes the bot look too disproportionate or not. Also, I’d love to see how he stacks up to the original Warbotron Bruticus with the aforementioned leg extenders. Thanks again!

    Highly recommended. Looks fantastic. No photos, but grab them. They only add a little bit of height and makes him look Great next to UT Abominus & Warbotron Bruticus.

    Appreciate the glowing review, but pictures would help me visualize whether or not they tinker with the proportions.

    The main change to the proportions was to move the legs further out, and add some bulk to the thighs...there is some change in height but it's not drastic (less than 0.5")

    Here's an old photo I had quick access to...these are actual parts, but I 'digibashed' the paint onto them.

    Note the crotch flaps which help elongate the waist.

    EDIT: Let me know if you need better pictures and I can take mine off the shelf and snap a few new ones.

    Well, if we're bumping...

    If anyone has a spare Blackbird that they're looking to get rid of please pm me.

    Gotcha, gotcha. How does he look without the crotch flaps but with everything else on? And can the crotch flaps themselves sit a bit higher? Thanks. Also, (and this is a bit more of a general question) but do you have to partsform off your backpack upgrade, your thigh upgrades and the Wings of Uranos upgrade kit for transformation?

    Someone should take the “NEW” out of this thread’s title now that it’s over a decade old. :rolleyes:

    :lol 

    I love old threads when they’re *rightfully bumped* like this thread has. Warms my heart.

    This guy + his “official addon” + @echotransformer ’s parts + SXS head is pure bliss. He will always be my one and only “voyager” Superion.

    Yeah I'll try to get some pics, hopefully mid-week.

    You do need to partsform the combiner the thigh crotch, and 'backpack gathering' parts. The swivel that makes Silverbolts nose rotate 180 degrees, does transform tho.

    Is this still worth picking up for ~$300? I’ve wanted a Superion forever but never got CW due to Alpha Bravo. My collection is about 85% CHUG and 15% 3p stuff that can work with it and the emphasis is on photography.

    $300 seems exceedingly high.

    I plan on getting one for my movie shelf, but we are getting a new superion next year.

    IMO Absolutely not. As others have said, we're slated to get a new Generations Superion next year, which will look the part far better than Uranos does. If you're not interested in a MIB or sealed set for Uranos, the last complete loose set sold on Ebay for $125

    I got my set for $200 last year which, imo, is about the most I'd be willing to spend on them in this day and age. They're absolutely my favorite in my Aerialbots collection, but if you're looking to only have one set of them then it might be better to hold off until the new official Aerialbots that got leaked come out.
