    I'll bring it up since nobody else has yet...Never thought in a billion years that Dreamwave would return to Transformers. Hope Pat Lee hasn't escaped The Phantom Zone or something.

    [Know it's completely different people/group but it really is an unfortunate company title as related to Transformers]

    Ugh. This looks terrible. The hands and feet are okay but the Onslaught Upgrade? No thanks.

    This looks awesome. I wish they would do awesome kits for all the combiners. Still gotta pick this guy up though. This is the reason who I bought combiner wars stuff, because I knew there would be upgrade kits

    It's definitely great to see someone else doing CW add-ons. However I think this would be better if the aesthetic of the new parts matched the aesthetic of the Combiner Wars figures. The styles just seem too different.

    Still I do find myself interested in this, if only to make alternate versions of the same mold like the G2 Combiners or a possible Ruination, seem more unique from their G1 themed counterparts.

    Too much goin on. I like the panels on the sides of Onslaught's legs as they make him a bit more Earthly and for some reason remind me of the G1 version. But everything else is just over-detailed and doesn't work. Only add-on I plan on getting is the PE hands and feet set. Don't want another chest or head, and all the cannons made so far just don't fit.

    I found Shockwave last week marked for $5 and have PE-09 in transit (that fit in with a discounted item too). I'm feeling pretty good about Bruticus already.

    The concept is good but the execution seems to be overkill.

    I'm curious how this will look in color. Cautiously interested.

    If they make a G2 set I might buy one, so as to differentiate it from the Unite Warriors one.

    I like the fact it gives you everything for 49.00 as to paying over 60.00 on the two sets from PE...

    Meh. I don't need the second PE set, and this looks way too goofy for me.

    Sold. More like this please. I'd also love to see one done for Optimus Prime's torso mode that differs heavily from the Perfect Effect one. Anything to add more variety to the combined modes.
