whats a full CW set of 5 gonna cost us canadians? im guessing 16ish per deluxe, 29ish per voyager. so 90-100 bucks give or take? being one whos spent big bucks on 3P combiners and who likes hasbros offerings, $100 is an easy pill to swallow.

I have Intimidator. I love it. It ain't no $429. TFSource out they damn minds.

Even at regular prices, Intimidator goes for $60.00 per limb, plus $150.00 for Diesel, bringing the grand total to $390.00

Free shipping or no, that price is highway robbery, especially when you can pay shipping and still be well under that and order the full set from BBTS. (I do recommend Intimidator. Wholeheartedly. I love it, did I mention that? DID I?!)

For those of you who will be getting the limbs in the next few days here are a few tips:

1) It's easier to push Superions head/chest out before folding Silverbolts in.

2) The instructions are vague to say the least on which way is front on the limbs. To have fully functional knees the plane/car parts need to face forward and for double elbows (utilizing the ratcheting knees) make sure the robot feet are facing forwards for the Aerialbots and backwards for Drag Strip.

3) Moving the arms out of a neutral pose on Superion will cause it to lean forward slightly in between two detentes on the ratchet joints. It would've been nice if the hips had a few more clicks but such is life, Superion hasn't fallen over and I doubt it will anytime soon.

4) Properly transformed Ultra Prime's hips are a bit bowed but the weight of the limbs pull them down so the legs appear straight and flush. I'm not sure if that will be a problem down the line.

Now for the good stuff. I heard some rumors that come from a trusted source about the remainder of the year, confirming some speculation we've had and unfortunately causing me at least a bit of disappointment.

1) Devastator will be a 6 Voyager gift set sold at TRU as a Titan class figure. It is all the original Constructicons and looks more like Giant than Hercules. Expect pics and official confirmation either January or February.

2) After Superion, Menasor, and Devastator, the fourth combiner will be... Ultra Prime! Let me explain, those deluxe Autobot cars we heard about? Those are meant to be the true limbs of Ultra Prime and complete that combiner.

3) The last Gestalt will be Defensor. Alpha Bravo will be repainted into Blades while Hot Spot will be a repaint/remold of the Optimus Prime voyager. As we've already heard Groove will not be a limb.

4) Sadly that means we will not get a proper Bruticus. I also don't know about store exclusives or anything like that.

I gotta say, if this is truth, the only thing that kinda bums me out is 3 torsos from the same mold.

That's what worries me too. It's good to remember that all the joints that matter are ratchet joints so they should hold through 3 uses.

One thing I forgot to mention and this might be the most important, Drag Strip has two pegs on the gun sword; one is round to hold like a sword while the one to hold like a blaster is almost T-Shaped, that one LOVES to stress ports, it almost broke the port on Optimus Prime's smaller pistol. I highly recommend never using that peg outside of Drag Strip's hands.

We knew about those Ultra Prime limbs, that isn't really new. What we dont know is if those said limbs will all be repaints . Also, I find it odd how this means that in scale, we would have 3 autobot combiners and only one decepticon. I see Devastator as more of a figure on it's own since it's a different scale and sold exclusively.

There are always more Autobots than Cons, when it comes to the toys. It's always been that way. I've always figured it's just because Hero's sell better than villains.

It feels like looking at each Batman toyline and seeing Batman in 6 different outfits and one Joker figure. If what Chuck herd is true, then that's even closer to the truth with 3 torsos being simple repaints of one another ;)

My point is Superion's rival is Menasor.

Defensor's rival is Bruticus.

Why 3 autobot Combiners once you add in Ultra Prime and only 1 decepticon? Decepticons always had the cooler combiners.

I can only assume it's because we've recently had a Bruticus. I'm cool with my Bruticus (with 3P upgrades however), but I'd still rather another gestalt than Ultra Prime.

Anyway, posted this on the UK Sightings page but I'll post it here too. Just noticed on the Smyths UK site that they're now listing a few of the CW figures (albeit not able to purchase yet). Powerglide, Drag Strip, Firefly, Skydive and a "Slpha Bravo", whoever that is. :P

Here's the pic for Drag Strip. Menasor still looks a little underwhelming to me. :-?

:lol:

Wasn't paying enough attention to notice that. To be honest, it wasn't really that. Menasor's head sculpt is still odd, I just don't like the bull horns. Also, I find that chest to be so damn wide compared to the hips. Not keen on Blackjack sitting in the middle, but you can close it up so I may opt for that.

It is going to be considerably difficult to find these figures in SoCal. There's just too many resellers around here. Especially when the Frank & Son collectible show is around where I live. And it looks like Amazon has sold out of the aerialbots. :(
