    i'm speculating they adjusted the rear wing kibble so that he'd be more poseable, since looking at the old version the rear wings would restrict the legs in extreme positions.

    (for instance with the foot forward, the rear wings cant be levelled to the ground and would prop the footing. just guessing.)

    Like 99% of the others, they need to do something about the waist kibble. At least they keep saying this is a NEW PROTOTYPE.

    Tomy say that when they were working out paint applications, they used Alt Prime, and that the production version of Kiss Convoy will have diecast after all.

    So in other words, different sources claim different things, and no-one can tell for sure what the actual toy will be like.

    And what do they mean by "the rest will be the same concept as the Binaltech series."

    The Prime trailer does look short!


    I hope starscreams legs can be straightened out of the uber horrible bent back wards samurai pose. Gawd I Hate that pose they have him in.

    This new line of Binaltech is stupid. I hate this "KISS" series. Bring back the re-issues.

    For Starscream, I don't care how he looks, waist kibble or not... GIMME!!!

    As for KISS, I miss the regular BT and BT*... They could've easily stuck with BT* for these little statuettes...

    But no, Takara wanted to breathe new life into the line and go in a completely random direction...

    I can understand the need to revamp the line, but at least do it in a way where it makes sense you know??? I guess they're really desperate in regaining interest in the fanbase in Japan that they were willing to try something wild like KISS...

    As for MP-04, I REALLY wished they just sold the trailer and not along with Convoy... I'd actually be more inclined to buy that if it were just a stand alone trailer... And then make MP-05 Magnus' trailer... Because honestly, what am I gonna do with TWO MP Convoy's???:(

    Let's see:
    1. Kiss= worst idea for plot ever.
    2. I think Convoy is alright as long as the trailer does cool stuff.
    3. MP Starcream= lots of awesome.

    I agree but there does seem to be some glimmer of hope in these latest posts.
    I've noticed that the girl figures are getting bigger while the TF's they're packed with get smaller.
    Seems to be the if the grl figures are more important so the incentive to even care about these products is rapidly diminishing.

    Next you know, Takara announces their new line TRANSFORMERS LOVE.

    Featuring girl figures similar to KT Figure Collection AI, and, as a free bonus, reissues of G1 Transformers toys.

    Sounds to me that the magazine is reporting that the figure will be plastic, but like a BT in all other aspects. If this is the case I will be none too pleased. I like the paint aps on the Takomy one way more than the US, but there is no way I'm paying a $40 premium for paint aps, a surfboard, and dumbass pvc.
