    Looking at the price on BBTS I feel like 269 it so is pretty reasonable for this set. Going to pull the trigger and order unless someone talks me out of it.

    For $45/3rd party Voyager + minicon I pulled the trigger. Don’t know if anyone is ever going to tackle this group anyway, and the Takara version is no good.

    I had considered getting CW to go with what I already have. But then Watching reviews I want to go big or go home. I worry about the joint breakage though.

    Got mine. Love it!! Despite his flaws Hades might be my favorite combiner yet!! on the minus side, one of the stupidly tiny tabs that lock Liozack's arms to Cereberus' already broke off, grrr. Tried gluing it and cutting it down a bit just to keep the arms in place in combine mode. We'll see if it works. probably not (and the other is already showing stress, guess I play with them to much lol)

    Man, I wish I had seen that BBTS deal way earlier. I already spent my budgeted money for toys, I only want Leozack and Cerberus for a custom (using the CW limbs) but that's about $140-190 for just those two. Getting them all, maybe reselling the other limbs, would have been a great deal.

    I really do love this set. Just got my Toyhax G1 stickers in to make these guys look all G1ish. Since they lowered the price a while ago I’ve been thinking about buying another set so I could have the individual bots and Liokaiser displayed on seperate shelves.

    Got mine on Friday and started playing with then yesterday and One of the tailfins on leozack snapped right off the ball joint. I don't know if I could exchange it with BBTS or if I am better off trying to glue it back together.


    Or does anyone have a spare tail fin from a junker they want to send me?;)

    That sucks.
    I would ask BBTS first to see if they'll help you out.

    I think they scale ok with MP Star Saber, but they're not MP seeker size individually. They're closer to CHUG Voyager size toys.

    Ahh ok. Looking at the design of the hands of the individual bots I kind of suspected that but I needed confirmation.

    They ARE MP scale. They are combiner limbs the size of an MP car.

    Since when are combiner limbs bigger than that? Since when were basic combiner bots 2-3x the size of Prowl and co? MP doesn't mean bloated and oversized

    Like those new "mp" Bruticus figures that are massively oversized. Swindle the size of Optimus and Megatron? Give me a fucking break

    They were on sale for 6 months, stock is probably starting to run low.

    part of it is that people want mp scaled combiners in combined mode, due to mass shifting not being real you can't have properly scaled bots and a properly scaled gestalt. So you gotta pick one or the other, so personally since i got warbo bruticus first thats the scale im using for my combiners.

    After having a hellacious time last night getting the torso together, I realized I hadn't moved jalguars shoulders down until watching a video review. After that, much easier and the end result was an amazing robot. Which bums me out about leozack tail fin even more.
