First let's have a look at him with the other bats he stole his body from: Hasbro Titans Return and Takara Legends (LG-34) Mindwipe. Technically, there's zero remolding between the Mindwipe's and Convobat as all his unique pieces are merely stolen from other figures. Namely his head is actually Infinitus (as mentioned above), Alligator Megatron Head from TR Galvatron's Headmaster Nucleon, and the swords come from Transformers Prime Wheeljack.
The robot mode isn't perfect, but it's pretty good. Good posability in the arms, and while they legs and feet are ok, they can sometimes be challenging. Big ups to the transformation though, the wings to legs is cool and more solid than I had expected.
The bat mode is somewhat limited. I really wish the bat head could move, like, at all. But his mouth opens! And I know I'm not transforming the legs right, but the way I do it gives me more mobility. And the wings are segmented enough (for the transformation) to do some neat poses. I actually really like the clear blood red window on Legends Mindwipe too.
The two Mindwipe heads are unique, but as mentioned above the others are redeco's of TR's first Voyagers Galvatron (Nucleon) amd Sentinel Prime (Infinitus).
Another borrowed piece from this set is ApeXarms, a redeco of Titan Master Apeface inspired by Beast Wars Optimal Optimus. Legends LG-30 Weirdwolf also comes with one of these apes, named Rarigo.
The set also comes with a solitary Alligator Megatron Headmaster meant to be partnered with Skullcruncher (Skullsmasher/Skull). It's kind of a cop-out, but I honestly feel it works out pretty well. You just gotta get Grax outta the way.
These two look really great together. And while I said it can be difficult to pose, you can pull off some pretty killer poses.
All in all, I think this is an incredibly ingenious and original set. It would have been nice if it were a two piece with a properly deco'd Megaligator sure, but I'm still satisfied. I highly recommend it, so if you're on the fence then get off! What do you think of these figures, exclusive or non?
