Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

Wow, I didn't even see Bass's shout when I was typing up mine. It was some freak accident that ours were at almost the exact same time, I guess.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

They are in their own wave.
Hotspot is part of Kabaya Wave 5 (along with Deathsaurus and WFC Optimus)
The other Protectobots are in the Gaia Guardian wave.
Seems both waves were released simultaneously.

The plane as a shield in super-combined mode is a little forced, but other than that it's a nice combined mode. A shame we only get these cool takes on combiners in Kabaya figures. Obviously the resources to try these kinds of ideas aren't there for real toys, but you can't help but think how cool a Protectobots re-issue with two extra components would be.

It looks like Deathsaurus himself comes with a "solid" outer chestplate for him to wear, and at the same time there is an entirely different-molded transforming Tigerbreast chestplate / animal partner packed in with one of the other figures that Deathy can wear too. So if you just buy Deathsaurus by his lonesome he'd at least look complete.

Yeah, looking at the boxes, the tiger comes with Optimus, while the hawk comes with Hotspot.

Man, this is the first new "real" transforming Deathsaurus toy that people will care about (RIDMegs need not apply) in 20 years. It's enough to make you think there could ever be a chance for a reissue or update.


I wish that were the case, bt interest hasn't been too great among the general Japanese public in late G1 reissues, historically speaking.

I had been waffling on getting these, but finally decided to take the plunge after seeing pictures. I think hlj.com is the cheapest option? You end up getting way more than you need, but you can sell the extras on Ebay or whatever.

Deathsaurus looks wonderful, but is simply too complex for his size and construction method. Some of the plastic tolerances don't work quite right - the head doesn't really snap into place but just sits in the hole between his shoulders, and the dragon tail is too small to have sufficient torque to completely clip together, as its own hinge seems to work against it. It's also more of a partsformer than I had expected, even at this size: you have to take off the wings and the arms, and Eaglebreast must be disassembled in order to "wear" him.

But damn, does it look good.

Apart from the pop-off head, I thought Deathsaurus was great. The parts-forming was pretty minor compared to the clusterhug that is WFC Optimus. And adding in the semi-transforming breast plates from the other sets made him really fun. Only other complaint is that the transforming Tiger Breaster's handle blocks Deathsaurus' head in robot mode a bit.

My Deathsaurus didn't have any plastic tolerance problems, but my WFC Prime stressed horribly at the back of the knees. WFC Prime was pretty awful overall.

I got Hot Spot too, and he's awesome, even better than Deathsaurus--mostly transforms, with minor additional parts-forming. The combiner pieces being able to snap onto all modes is great too.

I have Gaia Guardian too, but I've only assembled two bots so far: Blades and Streetwise. So far, looking awesome in all modes and combined as limbs for Hot Spot. And no parts-forming--total transformation for those two. 'Scramble Power' is intact. All arms can become limbs and vice versa. Highly recommend this set so far!
