    that's true, but that doesn't mean squat with the Kiss Players Prime not having any Die-cast.

    The plastic on Mirage looks good enough imo to where metal would add nothing but excessive weight and aint chips

    Still cant see how such a cool line (Binaltech) went to such a goofy direction. Robots , kissing, and panties, o my.

    They could have little robot drivers with guns & swords that transform into more guns and swords. With a list of Micron/Minicon names to choose from.

    Agghh, what are they doing?!

    Tomy have apparently said the plastic Kiss Convoys were repained Alt Primes used for test shot purposes and that it will have diecast.

    I don't know what to believe.



    As for the main question, it's almost defiantely going to be Hot Rod(imus)

    Odds are it will be red instead of blue. If the diecast does get the chop, i'd almost be sure of it being red, becasue Tomy will need to have something in the toy that Hasbro do not.

    I can see it now; there won't be an Alt Frenzy. We'll get Alt Rumble and then Kiss Play Frenzy at 2X the price with no actual change from Alt Rumble other than a different color.

    If that is the case, and die-cast is not going to be used anymore, then I personally see no point in buying the Japanese versions anymore. I am just waiting for confirmation on Convoy so I can either cancel or keep him ordered. No Die-cast = Alternator. Alternators are cheaper and avaliable at local stores(sometimes) so I see no reason to keep buying the japanese stuff.

    yeah,

    continuing with the off-topic conversation...

    TakaraTomy is really not smart in losing their foreign import markets with Kiss-Play. :rip 


    but man, Alt Nemesis Prime sure could use a neon pink sword/surf board! :duel
