    So glad 3rd party COMBINER WARS Feet are available. Still can\'t wait to get them. And for a 3rd party to upscale them all to.

    I would have prefered 5 voyager sized, non-combining dinobots over this.

    I have the Toyworld combiner, which I'm largely OK with, but Grimlock's Tyrannosaurus mode leaves me a bit cold : /

    Given what the high-quality knock-off companies have been doing, I wouldn't be totally surprised to see upscaled versions somewhere down the line.

    Yes, I saw that too, (sorry for the all off topic thing here btw) I don't know if that was because of the leaks or something inside, I mean we were all pretty excited even if we already knew what they would show. In my opinion Hasbro, who I'm sure know about the leaks, should do something to 1up them instead of pretending that they were never a thing.

    For Potp they did it now with Primal but for everything else... nope.

    Dinos look pretty great thus far in bot modes (sans grimlock who looks a little off to me), which is good because that is how they will stay in the collection much like the rando autobot combiners from the last run. I just don't think there is room in my heart for the Combinobots as Volcanicus.

    I wonder if you can compress the torso, cause the torso looks too thin without the Additional fists, but the extra fists are an optional accesory.

    Are Volcanicus's hip skirts segmented? If so that would solve one issue I had with Menasor, having the entire waist piece move out of the way if I wanted even one of the legs to go out even a little.

    I think you may have to mix and match. Look at poor Starscream here. He got Dreadwing as a right arm, and Sinnertwin as a left leg.Are those his wave mates, and they are just making art of who is on the shelf at the same time?

    Honestly it looks mistransformed. But I\'ll probably never end up putting them in the combined mode anyways, so whatever.

    I wonder why they couldn't put the Combiner Socket in the Shoulder like the Concept art?

    The fact that, in every picture where this thing is standing upright, somebody is holding it up, doesn\'t fill me with a whole lot of confidence

    For now I won't comment on the stability because it's a prototype, could have been mistransformed or untabbed when handled. We'll see on the final version.

    You could do what I did. Get both CW and UW Cyclonus. Have the UW version be Cyclonus and the CW version literally be a guy named Armada.

    In the movie Unicron said "Cyclonus and his Armada" and then pictured two identical Cyclonus's in differenr poses. Only Cyclonus was ever seen again. That is as close and accurate as your going to get.

    Thirty odd years into this hobby and this will be the first complete set of Dinobots that I get, +1 new member. I can't wait to get Volcanicus and Computron next to Predaking and Abominus.

    And speaking of new members...

    We can all go home now, Yautja just ninja'd everybody. :Gouki:
