    ..................

    I was kinda expecting that, considered that Alternity Convoy was postponed quite a lot of times

    I hope this doesn't mean that there's a problem with both the molds though

    I'm sure they still have a few gallons of Allspark blue somewhere.

    Doesn't surprise me given the track record.

    Think they will actually release Alternity Convoy this year sometime?

    Oh come on.
    Another delay?

    I have no interest in these figures, but Takara does put out product that I am interested in, and if these two are delayed, then I fear the problem will be widespread.

    I realize that this isn't an exact science (or whatever you want to call it) but seriously, at this point, I'd imagine two toy companies combined into one should have a rough idea of how to design these bastards and get them out to the public within a reasonable time frame.

    We've been talking about these figures for months now. What the hell? Get up offa yer asses and get it done TakTomy.

    I'm so glad they didn't release any of the Animated figures (with truly show accurate paint jobs that we know TakTomy is known for, though it would've saved me a step. lol) because I'd be pulling my hair out over their stupid delays.

    Perhaps they are screwing themselves for shrinking them down to 1:32 to try and avoid the 1:24 look that Binaltech/Alternators already had. I suspect they shrunk them down as a cost saving measure. I wonder how much these delays will end up costing them?

    Just more time to save for me. I'm still decided on which color to get. If I get the Silver Convoy he can fit with my classics as a new character so I might get the Blue megs to fit the same bill or if they are big enough (I know they are roughly deluxe size but if he's shorter than Prowl, it wouldn't work) I can use the Silver Megs to replace old Nerf colored megs as the classics leader
