    Upgraded combiner ports, new swords, new paint apps. Also we're assuming the TW re-release isn't happening anymore.

    I will -definitely- grab one of these. I always liked the look of the TW original, but its unstable nature put me off, plus it was a bit out of my budget-range anyway. This ticks all the right boxes: less expensive, and improved.

    If I was still collecting CHUG scale, and I really wanted Dino’s that were bigger than the POTP versions, I think the new Zeta dinos would be my pick.

    That was from TW, not Zeta. And the TW reissue of the original green is due out next week.

    I don't think they are, but I could be wrong.

    Zeta has said that they're going to do it with their re-release, FWIW.

    Only had chance to try the legs so far. It’s a slide system now for the Zeta dinos.

    I’m honestly shocked to see anyone still trying to improve this set. I tried for months to make it better. Even created custom parts for the knees to better help it’s A stance. Nothing worked for me. The more I tried to fix the more things fell apart.

    It’s a shame cause the individual bots were great CHUG representations.

    Only reason I'm buying the new set is for the individual bots
