    New wings are positively demonic!

    I won’t be able to try planet mode until the weekend sadly, just don’t have the time. But here are some ring comparisons!

    The middle two pictures show how the new rings connect to one another. No more hook like clamps that broke the previous set! Just ports and holes. They feel so much easier to assemble and detach as well to one another. I also threw in some size comparisons with the previous set as well.

    Anyone let me know if you want anything specific and I’d be happy to take more close ups!

    Given that the hinge section of the new wings is a completely different size and shape from the hinge section of the original wings, and given that the wing tips seem to be molded based on the specific shape of the original wings, I'm doubtful that the wing tips will fit on the new wings.

    Of course, no amount of guessing will be as good as someone actually taking the two pieces and trying to put them together.

    I sold my Armada Unicron in anticipation of Cell Or Hasbro Unicron. Ironically, ended up getting neither. Part of the reason I passed on Cell was I didn’t like the head sculpt with the mustache. I would totally get Cell now if the head looked like your awesome custom job!

    C’mon someone, we’re dying to know! Do the wing tips fit the new wings?

    I don't have the quote right in front of me but someone asked the creator of the wing tips and he said it would not work with the new wings, only the original one.

    I ordered mine from ShowZ with free shipping, and they should be arriving soon. But after I hit order, I saw that TheChosenPrime has them too. Wish I got them from TCP so I can get my Premium Downbeat shipped.

    No offense to your image or anything (great looking image btw), but those long wings in robot mode... I don't know what it is but it looks like he's wearing part of a broken umbrella. Just doesn't look good to me. I want to like them coz it would validate getting it for the planet mode but I can't be bothered with swapping wings around between modes so...
    I still think they should have added additional hinges towards the bottom of those straight spines to help keep the curvature.

    The two outer wing spikes do actually hinge inwards lower down, which would probably help. But I see it here, hahaha! Fucking hell.

    I feel bad for giving you that image now.
    :( 
    I think just keeping the wing spines closer together would help so they aren't too splayed out.

    Haaaa, don't worry about it. It's a visual that's there once you see it and that's due to their design, even with the smaller ones.

    Just need someone to produce a high grade stand for planet mode and the larger ring. The one cone looks silly enough but the two together ruins the display. I have the Throne of Chaos that was made for Armada Unicron and that but higher would be perfect.
