    GiftLove at AliExpress has old Protectobots, Aerialbots and Combacticons listed as separate items. Unfortunately, new ones (red Defensor and multi coloured Bruticus and Superion) and "G2" Bruticus are available only as sets.
    I think there's no Slingshot KO. If I'm wrong, I'd be glad to buy it and replace Alpha Bravo with Slingshot.

    Especially for those like me that absolutely likes the figure but no intention of combining him into "Devastator". I thought SS would maybe get me to like the combined form in toy form but nope, still only looks right in the movie. :)

    I'd argue that Bionicle-looking abomination never looked right in any medium, and never will... but at least some of the Constructicons look alright. :wink: 

    But yeah, some 20%-30% upsized versions might be nice to have.

    Yeah exactly. I never wanted the originals at all but some of the SS figs of them are nice.

    I owned the main movie line versions of most of them, and they were all pretty terrible, except for Long Haul (and his repaint). That mold is really quite good. It's not as bulky as the SS version, but it's much larger. If they don't deliver a good oversized SS version, I'd recommend the old one. It's not a floppy, awkward mess like the other Constructicons released around then.

    Finally, got my skittles combiner limbs.
    Absolutely amazing quality, I would go as far as to say some of these are better than the originals, some are just under. Cant wait to get stuck into the 2 devestators.

    Sir Toys, I cant thank you enough, you alre a legend!
    I will be getting more of these.

    The heads are all remolds that match the bodies. You can see close-ups at Sirtoys here or in the Action Figure Checklist folder for them here.

    This has happened before, where the store has been empty for a bit, then come back. It shut down entirely once, was gone for a few months, and then reopened. Since Giftlove is still up and the shops are related and carry mostly the same thing, it's probably going to be back. I'll worry if Giftlove goes dark.

    Probably not because Giftlove is still up and they're supposedly the same. I imagine they are catching a breather after 11.11.

    Nice. Hope these guys turn up on Ebay. Aliexpress has gone weird on me. I think I'll get four of those Blast-Offs for Galvatronus to begin with...
