    Check with @SirToys. I'm pretty sure CW Superion and Defensor both got upsized by 3rd party companies

    For me, I wasn't going to get them, but after getting Hun-Gurr on liquidation and seeing his "torso" mode I cracked and hunted them down.

    I curse my OCD with the knowledge that if I get one, I'd feel obligated to get the whole team.

    Decided to try out SL-58 upgrade kit to correct the awkward raised shoulder posture

    Post upgrade with the shoulder fillers tapped to the side of the thighs

    Corrected the shoulder issue.

    Does not affect transformation at all. Found a way to store the shoulder fillers at either sides of Hot Rod in alt mode.

    EDIT: MAJOR DISCOVERY(As far as I know. I could be wrong.)
    The stickers on Elita's nosecone that look to just say "Elita". They don't. There's another word on there. They actually say "Elita & Optimus".
    Aww :)  So cute.

    The core bot mode looks worse but the shoulders look better in combined mode.

    They made an earlier kit for just the Unicronus version, which turned into extra hand pew pews for core bot and shoulder cannons for combined mode.

    So turns out Primal can use all the retail Prime Masters and one more, Prima is in his chest. With the Scepter of Sparks he could wield all of them.

    Easy to do... I really wish they'd either had the one in Predaking be a different deco, or included an alt deco Onyx in some kind of pack like they did with the alt Prima, Megatronus and Soluses.

    That said, I'm intending to get the 3D Printed Onyx Prime shell... thing someone made on Shapeways and probably going to use the Repugnus Titan Master which actually came with the Deluxe Repug fig to make my own Onyx as he has a beastial Titan Master head and is the right sort of colours already, and I prefer using the Repugnus from the Titan Master Mini Vehicle with the Deluxe figure anyway :)

    4. Alchemist
    Guns

    2. Alpha Trion
    Legs
    1. Solus
    2. Micronus
    Scepter
    1. Prima

    Then Onyx would go in the chest.
