    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.

    Excuse the necro and absurd request, but could anyone transform their redcross in a way where the backpack folds onto the chest? I wanna know how it looks, like if it can completely fold down and still show his head

    I just picked up this figure this past weekend for $90 for all 5, in the box, already opened. Hydrant had a broken peg on his ladder.

    The instructions show that some of the weapons can attach on in certain places but I can't figure it out. I only was able to fit the guns on the Prometheus feet of Warning Line and Gumball. Anyone know how all these attachments, for lack of a better word, attach?

    The missile pods, the thing that goes on the back of Gumball to hold his guns in vehicle mode, this piece that looks like a combiner joint, and the weapons for Verti-aid and Red Cross.

    Anyone want the full set of these guys, with a no-box(s) discount, in minty fresh condition?

    All 5 for $220.00 shipped. Comes with all accessories and all instructions except for Streetwise’s/Gumball’s — his is the only instructions I can’t find.
