    Yes, you still need them to reinstall the new abs

    Don't get me wrong, I think it looks very fantastic, like the rest of the upgrade, regardless of what it was modeled after, or whether it was modeled after any particular precedent at all. I was just curious.

    Have to say I'm quite apprehensive about taking the pins out.

    Any top tips on how to do it TCracker? Excellent photos by the by.

    Any ideas what this set is going to cost? Looking at how much plastic is there I am afraid its going to be high, especially considering what most add on kits cost anymore. I think the X2 Megatron kit was around $50 and it didn't have half the parts this one does.

    Why not check with your preferred vendor? Most retailers have had this up for pre-order.

    This looks rather good, but I've never knocked a pin out before. How hard is it?

    It's up for pre-order for 49.99 at a few sites.

    Thanks. I didn't realize there were pre-orders up for this. Since its been a year I had pretty much given up hope on it getting released.

    It depends, some aren't too bad, but some longer one or ones really tightly installed can be a serious pain. Trying to remove pins without damaging the surrounding plastic can be a challenge, but I've had some pins come out fairly easily and others I ended up resorting to heating with a soldering iron before getting them to tap out.

    Holy crap. That's awesome. Just needs some Galaxy Force Convoy Wings to be even more amazing.

    ...don't tell me they came with wings too... cuz... that'd be insane. As is... give him wings, put the G2 Aerialbots as limbs. (Not the right bots for his drone limbs, but colors are close enough!)

    They both say August 2016 on BBTS, but unless they come out in the next 10 hours, I don't think they will make it.

    Things like this make me wish my X2Toys CW Megatron upgrade kit didn't go to pieces on me. Can't replace it now either.

    Not really feeling the combined mode chest. I'm going to assume the old chest parts can't close in combined mode anymore?

    Damned if Tcracker isn't rivaling TJ for selling people on toys with his pictures…

    I'm going to have to resist getting this set. Even if I could get ahold of a CW Optimus, I don't really want my Optimus to be quite so big. My TW Orion is about the right size, so GT bomber Megatron will be significantly bigger.

    But wow, is this set looking amazing.
