Dammit...I think these very pics shown here may have sold me. The set looks great, I just don't like the figure it's for.

Oh good! This comes with the new sword for Drift two. I've been so sick of that floppy thing.

This Prime upgrade makes a great ED-209, happily preordered.

Very cool! Thanks for the heads up.

Now on a different note, bring on the Giant pre-orders!

So do I buy Encore Devastator with my extra TF money and hope Hasbro & Maketoys do RID Scourge, or buy this?

Tough decision. At least I have 2010 Primus covered.

I dunno.. not sure if I'm sold or not. I wonder how this will stack up with City commander since it's damn near the same concept. Like someone said, I like the set but the figure not so much..The 3 that I bought seem to be very floppy making some of these dynamic poses sort of impossible..grrrrrrrr Why does all of this 3rd party stuff have to be so irresistable :BANG_HEAD:

This is my own little Christmas present to me. It would be nice to get it before Christmas, but I'll bet it won't make it in time.....

Don't see how it looks like Ed 209, haha. But definitely a sick set. You just know he'll look amazing posed mid-flight with the armour suit on.

Did they fix the gigantic hands? Is the sword still wired? Haven't been properly following up on this set.

NO,Thanks,This thing doesn't grow that much in height. Their is a comparision pic of this thing in full robot trailer armor next to generations deluxe size Drift. this battle tanker next to deluxe drift is only a 1/4 of a inch taller from toe to head.

Personally such a waste,in combined trailer armor robot mode it's still deluxe size. they had all the battle tanker parts to use. they could have had the trailer parts form a lower leg/shin. instead of just a raised foot.

IMHO,Paying $100 for this to get a STILL DELUXE COMBINED TOY makes ZERO sense.

At the very least the PROTECTOR armor did actually make the classics rodimus toy add about 1 & 1/2 inches in height. the protector armor did make the toy grow from deluxe to voyager size.

The city commander armor made classics ultra magnus go from a voyager sized toy to a ultra sized 8+inch sized robot mode.

Don't care about the tanker, at least not for $100.

However, I'll be getting the Powerglide set.
