I bet if it was an official product, all the third party haters would be all over it. But then again they would probably complain that it wasnt included ala rage of hercules set. All I know is my superion is gonna look bad ass !
You know what? For once I'm going to agree with you.
Not specifically about the hands and feet (as far as I'm concerned they're already good enough that I wouldn't want to pay a penny more for replacements, especially at 3rd-party prices) but I do feel that Hasbro is in a position where, if they have to choose between quality and budget for the regular retail release they should be able to offer "DLC". They release Generations Scourge without a Fracas? Thunderwing with the little drone thing not being able to become a robot? No Slammer with Metroplex? They should know that there's a few thousand morons who are willing to pay more to "complete" a figure than we did for the actual figure itself.
Hell, in an era where Kickstarter exists it's kind of mad that the company keeps shooting in the dark and hoping we all actually wanted a non-pretender Skullgrin figure. Thy should by now be able to say "Do you really want a Skullcruncher? Like really really, money-where-your-mouth-is want one?"
Buuuuut, they're a mass children's toy manufacturer, not a high-end collectible manufacturer so there's always going to be a void between the coulda and the shoulda, and that's okay.

Black hands/feet are what the original toys had.Ultra Markus wrote:the one thing that hasbro should have done and i'm still wondering why, is the white hands and feet
why hasbro why?
And provide more color contrast that keeps the overall figure from being too overwhelmingly white.
I do like the white hands/feet, though.

It might be wise to avoid calling a large segment of the fandom morons.

The 1984 Autobot combiner?!!!
Seriously never saw Takara ever doing this like this.

Comics which Japan does not ordinarily get, even.megatronus wrote:Just as the comics dictate! Huzzah!
Though, notice that Takara seems to have reversed the arrangement of the arms and legs from Hasbro's setup. Prowl and Ironhide are now the arms, and Mirage and Sunstreaker are the legs.
So, definitely not comic-accurate.

This TakaraTomy box set is geared towards the hardcore G1 fan, what with the cartoon accurate deco and lack of an Alpha Bravo.

Then I guess it was for color contrast.

What has just appeared in the latest issue of IDW Publishing's Combiner Wars, and is currently known as Optimus Maximus in the Hasbro nomenclature, the new combiner will include the Optimus Prime mold, plus the four rumoured Autobot limbs of Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker and Ironhide - though not fully confirmed as such. Check out the teaser below!

For Defensor, I originally planned to be happy with Legends Groove (he was, at least, still a part of the team!) and had the Hasbro versions pre-ordered. But after the reveal of Deluxe Groove, I found my mind changing and canceled those pre-orders so that I could make a new pre-order for the Takara version. (After about a day or so of worrying if I'd be able to do so for a semi-reasonable price!)
For the 1984 Autobot combiner, however, I think I shall just stick with Hasbro. (Hopefully they do proper reveals of the limb-bots soon!) Helps that in this case I already own the chest component, as Optimus is the one Combiner Wars figure (not counting Legends Class figures) that I already have in-hand. And as a new combiner, I don't have to worry too much about, "The make up of the team isn't quite right!" or, "I wish the decos could be a little better!"
(And, just so he isn't left out... For Menasor, I never had any plans on the Combiner Wars version. Fansproject beat Hasbro to the punch there with me, and I figured that I'd be able to enjoy the molds in question via their inevitable repaints.)

What I'm able to discern, the limbs are these molds:
- Left Arm: Dead End/Streetwise
- Left Leg: Drag Strip
- Right Arm: Offroad
- Right Leg: Breakdown
How much you wanna bet this will be another limited release

I think you meant Defensor. Defensor had black hands and feet modules.
