    Being able to turn into a repair bay, along with a van, a robot, and an arm. Being a combiner already makes him a triple changer, but this one's a quadruple changer with the addition of the repair bay mode. It just seems like they're trying to cram too many little joints and stuff in a scaled figure. It might end up being a nightmare to transform, or they'll surprise us.

    The figure does not turn into the med bay, the med bay is a separate piece that combines with the figure to form the arm. Look at my post just above yours.

    This is kind of XTB's MO. Their engineering philosophy always includes a ton of tiny little panels and flaps.

    Holy crap. It's listed as coming in 4th quarter of 2022. Pretty long wait for combine mode unless the other two arrive before then. I wonder which will be finished first. This or FT Marauder?

    He's pretty small, glad I'm going with MMC for bot mode.

    Well, xtb first aid and blade are going to make the mmc counterparts tiny too.
    And the combiner mode, oops.

    I get its the colour you want but the proportions on those older combiners is ridiculous. Pin head, huge torso and arms.....

    The repair bay mode doesn't increase the amount of modes. It just gives the combiner pieces a function in the non-combined modes, instead of just being random combiner pieces lying on the ground.

    Besides, dividing in two parts is not really a third mode, unlike MMC limbs.

    I do not understand XTBs pricing logic. Comparing relative value of their products, it seems all over the place.
