    I was wondering...

    I recently got this set -as it's really cheap now.

    And I was wondering is Red Cross supposed to come with Screw Covers ? or are the ones that came with Verti-aid supposed to be shared.


    Or is it a case of TFC doing their usual party trick and not giving you screw covers for ever member of a combiner team ?

    Thanks for your time.

    Curious also, who has this set on stock and what is the cheapest price seen recently?

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but BigBadToyStore has it now, full set of five (individually boxed) for $199.99.
    Prometheus TFC Figure - Set of 5

    For that price, I finally decided to pull the trigger on Prometheus myself.

    It's one baddass figure.

    Each bot is very unique and the hotspot firetruck mode is one of the best alt modes ever

    Prometheus and other tfc combiners are what main line should be like. If you have a spot in your collection the current price is great


    I’d sell mine but it is worth more to then what I could sell it for

    Well, the price is newsworthy.

    It's been on sale at that price for well over a year now. It was part of the huge TFC restock sale at BBTS along with Ares, Hercules (both colors), Hades, the PCC compatible WWII tank and plane sets.

    That price looks like it is just for one of the figures. On the page there is a item selector

    What is the height of this figure?

    I currently have the Weijiang OS combiner war defensor, and he's kinda ugly to be honest. Thinking of just selling it and getting another defensor.

    I have it and it is a great set. Some people don't like it, but it has always been my go to Defender. If you can find it at a good price, it is worth it

    14" , but you can stretch him to 15 or 16"

    Could use some taller feet like PE feet.

    I've always thought the UW Defensor with the C+ upgrade is great looking. Getting him there though takes some effort. He is only around 12 or 13" though.

    I'm not really doing much with mine if you want to hit me up for the set.

    I paid $181.69 in August 2018 for mine from faithtoptalk on eBay (with a voucher on top) making the total $166.84 .
    I had to sweet talk them into selling me the Boxes though as they wanted to send him loose. So yeah he's been cheapish for more than a year.

    If they remind me of anything they are a bit like the Warbotron Combaticons only less agressively styled.

    If I was recommending ones though I'd say these ones are reasonable to play with as they don't have the issues the Make Toys / Yes Model ones have with iffy Transformations of breakages. But the GT ones might be worth considering to some too. If you have the other TFC ones and liked they they are worth consideration though ; they are showing their age a bit now.
