Can the jumpstarters combine with vehicle mode like in the included comic, or is just place them next to it invehicle mode for effect?

Thanks all, just played about with my takara ones (since I'm yet to to find hasbro Twintwist, Misfire & Windblade) and they have plenty of holes in them which made for a few minutes of play with Cog.

It's more a way to attach the four Deluxes in vehicle mode to Dai Atlas in robot mode. The high quality scans of Dai Atlas's comic (now visible in the Legends manga thread) show this configuration in the bottom-left corner of the final page.

I'm so Coo Coo for combiners. If the Autobot Scrum Combination could actually be done in toy form..I'd do it :-D :-D

Hasbro on ebay. The Legends toys now are ridiculously expensive and hard to find because they also included exclusive targetmasters (which are proving to be better than the battle masters we are getting now).

You think the Targetmasters are better? The Battlemasters are solid plastic not clear and peg together more securely.

I honestly dont think either are great. But I do preffer the articulation on the Takara one I have since it has knees. From what I read, it seems fans are preferring the takara ones.

Just remember they're clear plastic, the more you play with them it's a matter of if not when they'll break. I will say that I don't see we'll see the Targetmasters like Kup's done as Battlemasters.

I much prefer the Takara Targetmasters too. The new Siege ones are okay, but don't quite have the level of articulation, engineering, and most importantly, accurate paint applications and color layouts, of the Legends ones. I'm mainly getting the Siege Battle Masters for the animal characters and the weapon special effects pieces. I'll be mixing and matching parts from the various humanoid Battle Masters to create more obscure characters, like a proper "Nebulan" for the upcoming Generations Selects Ricochet/Stepper figure.

Same here. Also, I really dont fear the clear plastic in this case. It's not the thin or rigid kind used for windows and the like. it,s similar to the plastic from the power core combiner targetmasters which is pretty solid.

Clear plastic is just like any other plastic. I've had plenty of thin clear plastic last forever and I've had thick clear plastic break out of no where. One of the tusks broke on my TR Repugnus, they're clear and pretty thick plastic and I haven't got a clue how aside from the plastic already being flawed. And I've had the exact same experience with solid plastic. I've never seen any reason to believe all clear plastic has the potential to become become brittle.

This right here. I've never had problems with clear plastic parts on my figures. Some figures have broken out of nowhere, like pieces cracking or crumbling when lightly touched or joints just shearing right off, but all of those cases have been with opaque plastic parts. I think that when plastic does stress, crack, or fail, it's easier to see the extent of the damage in clear plastic, since you can see flaws on all surfaces from almost any angle, as opposed to opaque plastic which can hide such damage if you're not looking in the right place.

If you're looking for Twin Twist now, you're going to have to pay aftermarket prices, no matter which version you get. Retailers like TFSource and BBTS had them for several months, but now, everyone who couldn't find Titans Return Wave 5 Deluxes has bought most of them up, along with Windblade and Misfire. Legends Topspin is still easy to find at his "normal" import price of $39.99. If you hurry, though, BBTS does seem to have a few Legends Twin Twists available at that price right now, but I would jump on that as soon as possible.

I just now went and bought myself both Legends Topspin and Twin Twist from RobotKingdom. My Big Powered set is still sitting my Pile of Loot on BBTS (as I'm waiting to save up some more before I make a few more purchases I need to make from BBTS before shipping), but now I've essentially got all five Legends Powered Masters.

I'm excited to get my hands on all five and start making all these many different Powered Master combinations:

Dai Atlas + Sonic Bomber = Sky Powered
Dai Atlas + Roadfire = Land Powered
Dai Atlas + Twin Twist = Drill Powered
Roadfire + Topspin = Wing Powered
Topspin + Twin Twist = Attack Powered
Dai Atlas + Sonic Bomber + Roadfire = Big Powered
Dai Atlas + Topspin + Twin Twist = unnamed tertiary form
Dai Atlas + Sonic Bomber + Roadfire + Topspin + Twin Twist = Ultra Powered
Dai Atlas (robot mode) + Sonic Bomber + Roadfire + Topspin + Twin Twist = unnamed robot mode configuration

that's why in December 2017
I ordered them from online when most retailers had them as they were no where to be found elswere and the price was a little more than what they should be and now I can attach them to big powered
And it's not that impressive

Thanks for the suggestions. Please understand though, it was not revealed until earlier this week that Topspin & Twin Twist could even make some sort of formation with Legends Big Powered, so until a few days ago, I had zero interest in them...hindsight and all that...

Sabrblade wrote:Dai Atlas (robot mode) + Sonic Bomber + Roadfire + Topspin + Twin Twist = unnamed robot mode configuration


Just thinking about this however, wouldn't it aesthetically/symmetrically look better with Misfire in place of Topspin in this particular mode? But then, that presents the issue of having a Decepticon on a team of Autobots... Maybe try both (If you have Misfire that is...)?...either way, I cant wait to see the pics...

Honestly, I'm going to wait and see if by chance Big Powered ever goes on sale, I'm not in a position to make any more big purchases since I just got Metroplex, eve if it was a sweet deal. BBTS seems to have an abundance of Big Powered at the moment....

Also I noticed TFSource has Legends Grand Max on sale for $210, with free shipping...definitely a step in the right direction, lets see if it gets any lower anywhere else... :-?

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago.

Missfire might be an oddity but you could probably use Hasbro version doubles to keep symmetry or for full on drill mode with twin twin twists.
I've ordered big powered, figure he wont be imported as much as the other legends and no point in saving for MP BW Megatron until V2, replacemnt bits or a solid KO sub 100 -not going to happen.
