    I think I'm going with 2 Swoops and Snarls. I like the additional colors they add.

    Both my local Target and Walmart actively refuse to restock on Transformers. I've gone back months or more and they never put out new stock; it's always the same select few RID2015 toys warming shelves week in and week out.

    The week they get new stuff in, by the next week it's all sold out, and you're left with the line's shelfwarmers.

    Heck, my Target is still trying to get rid of old TLK toys.

    The worst offense was Combiner Wars. Both stores stocked wave 1, then skipped both waves 2 and 3, and overstocked the last 3 waves.

    Unfortunately there isn't one. Not even in the feedback forum.

    Can someone out there **please** start a feedback thread dedicated solely to Volcanicus?

    I'll have a completed Volcanicus soon thanks to @Yaujta helping me score Sludge.

    I highly recommend using Sludge as the right arm like emgo316 did on YouTube. When he's configured as a leg, the upside down Brontosaurus neck/head looks ridiculous. It provides a nice symmetry with Swoop with the head right side up in arm configuration.

    With that said, right now I have Rippersnapper as a stand in until I get Sludge. Based on the feedback in these forums, I fully expected Volcanicus to be a horrible combiner the likes of CW Optimus Maximus and Menasor.

    But you know what? He isn't. Not even close. He's pretty damn good.

    PotP Grimlock gets a bad rap for his weird proportions.

    But, in hand it isn't that bad. He's a really nice figure. Alot of fun and he looks great.

    He's definitely a much better figure than FOC Grimlock.

    I like Swoop and Snarl as arms, Snarl's plates look bas ass on the side and back of the arm. Slag and Sludge make for good symmetrical legs and having a triserotops as a knee is useful in hand to hand combat.

    I think Snarl is better as a leg for the same reason you mentioned Slag makes sense as a leg. What better weapon in hand to hand combat than a bunch of sharp plates going all the way up his leg?

    Here is Hun-Gurr. I gotta say he is pretty awesome. However I despise the alt mode so here is my fan mode. 20180421_102832.jpg 20180421_103200.jpg 20180421_103118.jpg

    P.s. if this is someone else's fan mode pm me and i will edit this, but I just bought him this morning and have not looked into the communities reaction to him.

    Check out this awesome artwork of Cloudburst! I've been looking for one for Skullgrin, has anyone seen his artwork? I'm making a folder of them all but can't find his, I used Google and all the usual DJp-jlPXoAAwKBF.jpg 5d4ec6b6bc3c05f7080e24d7befb007598c49182-1.jpg

    An all jet combiner with an weapon made of jets (+1 shuttle)

    Emperor Starscream and the Dark Star Saber 20180417_180842-1.jpg
    In my opinion the best combiner yet, very solid, no issues. Volcanicus is the best looking combiner ever, very cohesive, very powerful looking but the shoulders are not so good unfortunately. Abominus is probably solid but I don't care much about Terrorcons, Blot is great, Rippersnapper is great, the rest are just meh.
