His Head

He's definitely his own character, but the head design makes me think of Captain Gridiron from G.I. Joe. Make him green and yellow, and you've got another 'Joe-themed figure to go with the Powerglide repaint.

My favorite combiner?

I haven't been a Transformers collector, but got persuaded by the CW combiners. Of the limbs I've bought, this is my favorite, at least in part because it's not a re-mold of one of the other limbs. It makes me appreciate all the great design choices a little more. (And you're right about the arm-flaps.)

I like attaching a few of the other Protectobots' combiner weapons to his backpack so that he looks hilariously well-armed.

Thanks but no tanks?

It seems like the common expectation is for Mr. Rook to be remolded into Brawl for the upcoming Combaticons. He looks like a fantastic APC, but I'm skeptical how well he'll work as a tank, particularly since his turret would presumably just be his combiner piece. I guess we'll see soon enough.

That one pic of Blades

That one pic of Blades carrying Rook reminds of the head vehicle from Dynaman.
