    huhwahht?! :inquisiti 

    This is how the line will come to an end? Booo.

    This line was actually pretty fucking cool. Except for the fact they only got up to 4 molds before apparently axing it.

    No head remolds is disappointing.

    But holy shit, DEM COLORS. Definitely getting Dai Atlas, Goldbug is a solid maybe.

    On the fence about Dai Atlas. Goldbug, on the other hand, is a definite buy.

    Dai Atlas seems to be more of a reflection of OPTIMAL OPTIMUS.

    Aftermarket head, and Goldbug might not be so bad.





    Seems kinda like how Binaltech came to an end?

    No?

    wait, are these official or mockups? cause the heads look the same, yet RK claims they're different. or are they different and I'm an idiot? (in my defense, i dont have the prime mold)

    No new heads make these an easy pass. Thanks for saving me some money, Takara.

    I noticed that as well. The insider that first reported these and now RK themselves are saying they have new heads, and yet the toys in the pics do not.

    I'm honestly thinking these might be mock-ups.

    Any chance these could just be photoshops so buyers have an idea of what the colors will look like on the respective molds? I've seen this quite a bit with new product images. That explains why there aren't any new heads. And honestly, the coloring looks almost fake.
