Big, Bad, Battlin' = awesome!

Excellent review! I don't know if the Combaticons are the best team to come out of Combiner Wars, but they may be my favorite, since I have all four sets.

Also, I have to say this really is your best review yet. You nailed it on the pictures in my opinion.

Best Combiner Wars set?

Thank you!! I’m really glad you liked the review so much! I wish I had another version of this set, because it really is great.

What do you think the best Combiner Wars team is in terms of their actual quality?

In terms of actual quality, I'd say it's a toss up between the Aerialbots (all three versions), the Grand Galvatron set, and the UW/Takara Technobots. All the Unite Warriors sets have that extra bit of polish in paint & sculpting, but what puts those two over the top, and the CW & G2 Aerialbots is Silverbolt.

None of the deluxe figures are bad, but the Aerialbots benefit from being the first team produced. So they don't suffer any of the problems that can come from being retools/repaints of previously used molds. And Silverbolt by far makes the best torso. He's solid and has nothing funny going on with his combiner hips or shoulders, so he's stable & sturdy. Same goes for all his retools, including Cyclonus (Grand Galvatron) & Scattershot (UW Computron).
