    These look good. I like how they've gotten a bit closer on their head designs, really my only big complaint with them other than clear windows.

    I take it you mean lack of clear windows. Because nothing says convincing alt mode like a see through panel showing screws, hollow sections and folded up robot bits.

    With how these figures are made see through windows would have looked utterly atrocious. Heck they look bad enough on the mps that have them. Dunno why some people think its a good look, it really isn't unless the actual interior of the vehicle is modeled behind them.

    Overall I'd prefer darkly tinted windows to give the illusion of real windows without being able to see all the kibble... That said, I'm fine how they are...just a general preference.

    It looks like Warning Line didn't have his abs extended in your video Lazy. Is that a personal preference to make him shorter?

    That guy certainly looks like he can do some defending.

    LazyAza already has one on YouTube. Doesn't show off too much of the combined mode but it's very good to get a good idea on how badly I need dis.

    That is quite the gimungeous backpack. I'll mostly keep him in combined mode or alt mode.

    Sorry about not spending more time on his combined mode in my redcross review. Didn't really see much point since I covered his leg stability in my hydrant video when I tested him out with ares' arms and he's going to be just fine once he has both his arms. Although when you do have his legs super straight he is slightly wobbly which is ironic as tfc's past combiners have been at their most stable in this state but with prometheus he actually gets even more stable the more dynamically you've got his legs. :lol 

    And yeah regular setup imo still way better than scrambled. Gum is too gappy as an arm for my tastes and Red just ends up as a big brick leg.

    I love the fact these guys are scramble city. Not sure wether I prefer First Aid as an arm or a leg though.

    Yeah, so I totally just scored a Redcross for an amazing price. A guy has them on eBay for $80 shipped and I got the price down a bit, then used a coupon. I thought I'd have to be patient and wait a few weeks to get RC for a good price, but I was able to get it much sooner and beat my price record. Booyah!

    (Now hopefully he actually shows up sometime in the next month)

    He does need some midsection...wish they would have poor more consideration into it, but oh well.
