    if CW combiners looked like that from the get-go, I probably wouldn't have spent so much on 3P combiners.

    And here's a preorder for the Victorion set: C+ Customs - THC-02B - Combiner Wars - CW - Victorion - Add on Set

    I still like the look of this kit, but the price is pretty high (If I got the Victorion set, it'd cost more than the actual combiner on Amazon), and we still don't have any pictures of the final product, just test shots. I'm holding out hope, though, that this will be a great set.

    I like that it adds a waist joint to Defensor, and will probably get that version. I have the TDW Bruticus upgrade already on pre-order but didn't like the look on Defensor so it's great to have an alternative.

    The upgrade on Victorion does make her look too much like Defensor though, I would have liked the parts molding to look more feminine to help differentiate her.

    The only way I'd jump is if there is a red set to make a decent Guardcity

    Huh, that's interesting... Not sure if it's my cup of tea but I am still excited for more CW add-ons! It's cool that we are finally getting some more add ons. Maybe that means come 2018 we'll be getting cool Titans Return stuff.

    I wonder when the fully colored images will come in.

    (Those aren't the final colors, right?)

    If those are the final colors, I know where my vote for worst 3rd party toy of 2017 is.

    Okay, now that I'm seeing Defensor in what are likely final colors, I'm a bit more impressed.

    Hands are a bit oversized, and the feet are almost comically so. However the overall effect is pretty damn impressive. I may have to pick myself up another Hot Spot and dip into this kit, because it would certainly set Defensor apart.

    Definitely looks like Rick James saying "Give it to me baby"

    I hope these aren't the final product. Victorion's set has way too much red. If it were laid out like Defensor's, although with green accents on most of the solid red pieces, I'd like it. As it stands, though, it doesn't look great.
