    How would you change the color applications to match the likes of “bpowered destroyer?”

    Beat me to it. I also wanted to change the soles of the feet and the blue part on the hip connector but decided against it.

    I think that red Bullet Core looks way better than the blue, so I will permanently swap them out.

    The hip connector is a challenge, little springs and sliders.... was worth it in the end.

    My replacement Jetter arrived today. I'm enjoying it a lot more than dasher! Here's an attempt at a cooler looking combined jet mode.

    I worked at toy show today where I had time to open and mess with the 3 Trivers out now and I have to say I dig them. I was wary at first. Their mix and matching play style is simple and easy. Love it.

    To be frank that set is still not worth the price. But the lithograph set that originally came with it is still worth double that asking price. The artwork is beautiful. I still need to mess with my scanner and upload a better set of scans. Just not enough time in a day is there?

    It's fifty odd pounds, the powered suits were twenty five to thirty. So twenty more for a wing pack, weapons and adaptor parts doesn't seem massively out of whack to me.
    I'm just pleased it doesn't cost the same as the Trivers mechs themselves.

    Okay, 52 is pretty tempting. Really liking the cockpit design, plus the Zentradi mode is killer (5th pic, bottom left).

    I actually don’t like 52 at all. The colors. The wings. The chicken-like gangly mech.

    But I NEED those 2 TriVerse connector pieces it comes with.

    I don’t mind the price. It is what it is. But I’ll just preorder one.

    Here’s a question. Will that piece be in other sets? I don’t buy the “everything gets released multiple times” argument. But I see 52 is called No 1. So it’s safe to assume that this is the new Powered Suit style and we are going to see No 2, No 3, and so on. I bet we will see both those connectors in every new version.

    luckily I’ve just convinced myself to not preorder a second one haha.

    It's kind of the hero equivalent of the waruder raiders, I'd say there will definitely be another one later this year.

    I just thought it would have been priced similar to the sky jacket set. Like @HolyCulture, it’s likely I will get one, if only for the connector/adaptor part to allow for greater cross compatibility.

    The Skyjacket felt more like a kit, which is a good thing in my opinion. For example, the wings were on a sprue that met the painted tips at the support tree. Even if you are super careful you still have to paint match the red and apply it. I'm also going to airbrush my swords matte silver soon, I really like the jacket with pop Cindersaur.

    Did anyone mention this:

    Doesn't look like a preexisting PE combiner upgrade set to me.
