    This is what I've been waiting for. Near perfect in every mode to the cartoon. I will be buying two sets of these figures without a doubt. Thank you X-Transbots for making a Stunticon fan's dream come true.

    It looks amazing! 539 Designs is a wizard. Can't believe he managed to:
    A. Make the cars realistic like the actual cars
    B. Make the individual robots look EXACTLY like they do in the cartoon
    C. Have them all combine and make the combined mode look exactly like the toon as well!
    Can't wait for his Combaticons and Aerialbots... :D 

    One minor, minor thing though, these renders got the eye color wrong on Breakdown and Motormaster. In the cartoon, only Drag Strip and Menasor had red eyes. The others had purple eyes. I always liked that, they were cars and their eye color was a mix between Autobot and Decepticon (red and blue make purple). @ibot : will the eyes on Breakdown and Motormaster stay red or will they be made cartoon accurate purple?
    Other than that, I already ordered two Crackups/Breakdowns, and I plan to buy two from each of the team. Display them as loose bots and as Menasor :)

    These are 80's cons, no question. It feels like there could be more panel lines/details/nurnies to give the sculpts depth, but overall I feel it's a strong showing.

    Gestalt mode has proxy geometry to show scale and whatnot which is fine for now, but it does feel like the character. Well done, XTB.

    If XTB confirms that they are doing more combiners, like THIS, then that's all I'll get.

    I find the toon Menasor boring looking but this guy hits all the right buttons for me! It has like a retro beauty in a good way. And that Motormaster is just perfect!

    It seems that the "arm cars" are just "shells" in combine mode, I don't like the look of Monolith, but it isn't the fault of XTB... G1 Menasor is something only a mother could love...

    Just to be clear, I don't know if X-Transbots is planning more combiners (although I'm sure they will do more if these are a success). I just mentioned the Aerialbots and Combaticons because I love those as well and I would go insane if they can make them look this good and completely cartoon accurate :)

    I fixed that for myself!

    :D 

    Good lord, they are full of G1 goodness, it's such a shame that they are being made by XTB so I'll be passing otherwise they look phenomenal, I'm still trying to figure how the combined mode works, don't see the two guys on the feet like in the cartoon?

    Id laugh if they all sell out due to the the price and the QC ends up being top notch forcing you to buy my second set on ebay for 1000!

    I'm kidding but as I said before, Im in for two sets. I suspect high quality or sales will be a bust for future combiners from them.

    It isn't exact but lets face it combiners, and Menasor in particular, were very lazily drawn. Those elbows on look amazing.
