It would be cool if the original author could post some pics of this set on the ROTF color scheme. I do not want to go purchase a separate Energon mold, just to open for this appendage set.

Thanks


He did.

It's OK. But it's the color of the leg parts that throw it off. The only accuracy to G1 is Silverbolt's colors. Everything else is as usual off-center. The other thing is the mold degradation is present for the ROTF/Universe version. It's not as sturdy, causing it to rely heavy on the add-on kit. I think I'll go with the gray add-on kit for ROTF version.

I just fit the appendage kit on my ROTF superion and I still had to take the inner wings of the warthogs off to make it look right ..His legs being so far apart just ruined how the kit made the feet look...

I'm going to merge this with the above topic, because it is probably of interest to many folks looking in on that thread too.

Thanks man, appreciate it! Actually looks pretty damn good with the original set, the grey is brighter than I thought it was!

Looks great with both sets, so I guess I'll go with whichever set I find cheapest! ^^

None that I could see..My box did come with a nice dent on the bottom right hand side and the interior bubble was slightly crushed ( contents secure of course) .. I was looking foward to some sort of "bell or whistle"...

That's why they designed the inner feet to twist in such a way. The way Has/Tak designed Superion Maximus was the problem. We're all using an alternate mode that Hasbro did not think we would use. The feet-apart syndrome is because of the fact they (hasbro) wants us to use one A-10, and one F-22 as legs. To make an F-22 a leg makes it wider than the A-10. In order for him to stand, the legs have to be set wide apart. Even in the Superlink instructions, they use one A-10, and F-22. However, they use parts from Bruticus Maximus on the back of the box reminiscent to Scramble City's switching between Superion and Menasor, except they use parts from Bruticus Maximus.

The weight of the add-on kit's feet is what saves the day. the rudders on the A-10s also keep it from having a slightly closed leg position. I usually turn a leg at an angle to bring them close together, but it looks funky to me. The wide leg pose reminds me of the old Japanese super robot shows where the robots have the same pose at times.

Still, thanks to Peaugh's alternate arm configuration, I will get the gray set for the ROTF version.

The "Bells & Whistles" are a lie, much like the cake.

I have an extra "Snowman set", brand new not opened for $45 shipped in the USA. Stupid me pre-ordered two.

Asking $49 with free USA shipping. Saves you a few dollars if you planned to order one anyway.

I'm working on a Carbombya sell thread to clear out some excess before an upcoming move, but figured I'd mention this here in the meantime. Send me a pm if interested.
