    Just got my Conabus, and noticed if you attach the combined mode heel spur (Phlo's handgun) upside-down with the flat cover plate facing downward, it adds some ankle stability.

    Short on time this evening, will post some more thoughts once I get a chance to inspect him a bit more. Initial impression is great though, these get better with each release!

    I could be wrong, probably very wrong, but I think that the wings will attach to the fold out shoulder pegs we have seen on Phlogeus and the still unseen not-Divebomb.

    Again, probably wrong.

    Those are pcc connectors made for doing things like this:

    Their Diveombs wings have to plug on to nemean which means they use the same regular pegs as all of tfc's stuff.

    Maybe the wings plug into the two holes behind Nemean's neck, plus the two holes that the cannons currently plug into? (And then the cannons plug into the 'backpack' portion of the wings?)

    maybe dive bombs wings are one piece, connected to a backpack, that you pop off dive bomb, and plug into nemeans back, then the guns plug into the backpack.

    After seeing a fully put together Ares, I'm not sure if I like FR or Ares better. I don't want to buy another predaking :(

    Predaking was not part of my childhood Transformers exposure. Which sides do the limbs "belong"? Rampage & Tantrum on the right, Divebomb & Headstrong on the left? (Predaking's right & left, not ours.)

    I like that stance... I knew Ares could somehow have his height somewhat adjusted but didn't see any pics with him like that... looks pretty good to me...

    As far as the traditional g1 toon/artwork/old comics go it was typically Divebomb and Headstrong on the right, Rampage and Tantrum on the left (from Predakings perspective).

    I think he looks best with the arms the other way though and the legs as is, that's the way both mmc and tfc intend theirs to be setup officially.

    Huh, I never noticed that the arms were reversed with Ramage on the left and Divebomb in the right. I figured the configuration that everyone is using with Ares (Rampage on the right) was based on "official" canon.

    The toy and cartoon models had rampage on different sides.

    Tfc is going off of the toy's placements.

    Huh. Actually the legs were switched too. Basically, the official g1 toy placement is a mirror of the cartoon model.
