    Honestly, you wouldn't want this guy Constructor sized without some substantial engineering changes. I love how he looks combined, but the Toyworld version is largely held together with friction pegs. If he got any bigger he'd fall apart like a leper during an earthquake.

    I was afraid they would use the cheddar cheese gold color they did on Stepper.

    I am a sucker for a combiner gift set, I just don't have the $$ to get it right now.

    Can't wait to see a review, and see if this guy does a better job being combined.

    Anyone else want to see Grimlock get an OS version that is compatible with the Shura King Limb Bots? I think it would look pretty awesome.

    Upscaling a product is not a quick and easy process.

    "Two crowns now... hmmmmm..."

    I'm diggin' that not-Grimlock gets a crown AND the combined robot gets a crown.

    Now Dinoking really has something to smile about.

    It's come to my attention that the new connectors are molded into the figures themselves but I would've wanted to keep the chrome accents from the TW set like the claws from the combiner hands and feet, for example. Does anyone know if these chrome pieces can be removed from the combiner black pieces or are they one single piece that has the chrome finish applied to them?

    Just showed up today. Will compare with the TW one when the kids are in bed.

    Still looks the same to me. Personally not expecting anything different from the TW ones except the combiner ports.

    Okay, thanks. I had hoped it connected better to the robot-head, but I guess you're right. It's still a great voyager sized G1 faithfull Dinobot set.

    Damn this figure is scary squeaky tight! :eek:  Might be the paints being a tad too thick?

    Only had time to check out the leg ports.

    And QC issue on Snarl. Prolly get the slots sanded down another day so that it closes.
