    Yes I remember that. Optimus, Hound and Scrapper.
    If they manage to get the combination going I'll be super impressed...

    I'd rather transform everything myself, so not thanks

    Lol. It’s not like there’s a shortage of Constructicons that you have to transform yourself.

    Robosen could do them and it would not take anything away from you.

    Besides, It would be amazing to see it transform and combine!

    This is getting a little off topic.

    Sadly, as cool as it would be, I don't think it would be mechanically feasible.

    And once you factor in the cost of a six-figure Robosen combiner (which would put many people off purchasing), plus the transformation logistics (how do you make an auto-transforming combiner with partsforming pieces? How do you get the individual robots to move in perfect unison to perform actions when in combined mode?), then the whole thing seems especially unlikely.

    You guys got any clue when the first of these guys might drop? X-transbots already had their hauler out and fanstoys seems to be gearing up to release one if not two of their set but we haven't even seen color prototypes of the mmc ones yet.

    I think it was said that they'll first release all of the Protectobots before these get released.

    Based on how slow Defensor is going, maybe as far out as 2026? 2025 at the earliest I'd say, but would love to see it sooner.

    In the Maximus Pro (Defensor) thread there is speculation the remaining Protectobots may be out by the end of the year, or early next year. Ignis/Hot Spot is their most complicated figure ever and he's out of the way, so things should speed up from here.
    That would mean Destructor would start releasing next year, I would guess.

    defensor should be finished this year.

    I think it was @LazyAza that hinted at a possible first release of the first member before the end of the year?

    Does someone know when the first member of the toy version is set to release and what the intended timespan is?

    Protectobots or Constructicons? I think the first toy deco Protectobots could see release any month now.

    But toy Constructicons...I don't think there has been any official mention or confirmation that those will happen. Just speculation because of the toy Protectobots and the potential for toy Combaticons now they're doing Ruination/Baldigus.

    you can be pleasant on the internet? You mean some people make mistakes without the express purpose of attacking your nads? I was unaware.

    But seriously this kind of interaction is great. Though i do have to say i do doubt you can actually fly

    MMC released Roadcrane years before XTB released Caravaggio. (I know you meant Long Haul, but Hauler is a character who is grouped with the Constructicons)

    I blame Bob Budiansky for making their names so similar whilst being the same color and both being construction vehicles

    Being the same color is eHobby's fault. For nearly the first 20 years Hauler was the same color as Grapple.

    If mmc made a reformatted prowl that combined with these guys, I would honestly throw as much money at it as it took to get them
