    I’m betting that these will the priced $0-10 less than the first two figures.

    So, places like TFSource will charge $100 for each.... But with a group discount, they’ll charge, like, $360 for the group of four.

    Personally, I think the MP-scale for movie and post-movie bots are all over the place for the official and 3P. Targetmaster Hot Rod is a smaller but regular carbot size. Ultra Magnus towers over Optimus Prime. FansToys made a slightly bigger scale. MakeToys and FansToys have Headmasters and Targetmasters that scale with Rodimus Prime (MP-9) but not Hot Rod... These Junkions also scale with Rodimus Prime... So I really wish Takara will set the stage for everyone else because this is killing my OCD! LOL

    Hopefully those rings are of light metal. I dread die cast weapons of anything because the joints, especially after buying the two HM's from KFC, are not very tight and barely, if at all, could hold their weapons out of the box. I know I'll get flamed and buried for this but prefer a nice gray plastic.

    Good to see some updates and these moving forward.

    How is a company supposed to make new product when it is too busy making reissues? Especially of something that, if not mistaken, sat around long enough to go on sale in the first release.

    I know that's hard hearted and cruel but, dang, it seems every thread now has a request for reissues. Who is buying up all the stock if no one seems to have bought an item the first time around?

    But in this very specific case:
    E.A.V.I. Metal Phase 6-A Crash Hog & 6-B Dumpyard Set of 2

    I feel more companies should opt for hinged chain like parts instead. You can’t do much with a chain and having it hinged allows for more display options.

    Wow - how did I miss this thread! Thanks for the pics @daimchoc

    I'm all in for a junkion army. I dig that they are making 4 new bots - but I kind of wish they just made maybe 2 tweaked base bodies with a crap load of inter-changeable parts so they collectors could have fun and customize how they like without having to buy 4 new figures. I'd imagine that not everyone loves Junkyard - and would buy an accessory pack to get some more mileage out of him.

    For those that collect Marvel Legends, the sort of recent, Hydra 2 Pack was a pack of two generic soliders but they packed in tonnes of different heads and accessories so they could be customized however you like. I think it'd be great if KFC did something similar, rather than having 4 different no-name soldiers. Of course not all 4 soldiers are going to sell at exactly the same rate, so sellers are going to be left with the 'unpopular' soldier, which may be a turn off for future orders...

    Just a suggestion. As always, "Keith knows best" :)

    If only they'd released Junkions before that could hold their weapons perfectly. It's almost be like we'd know what to expect!

    @ibot, aswell as a loose chain how about adding one that's poseable for action stances like this one:

    Would really enhance the display options.

    Beats me man, I missed it too until today! o_O 

    I have the first 2 but part of me wants these and part doesn't. Who am I kidding? I'm going to buy them.

    Thanks for the link. But before this is in the Netherlands it'll set me back for 250+ dollars eventually. (Shipping+guaranteed tax, custom fee, administration costs etc.)

    Living in certain locations does suck in regard to a collecting habit.

    I did get Wreck-Gar and he was pretty good, minus the prone to stressing knee panel. They look cool and all but I can't see myself buying them. There are so many things coming out that buying the same basic transformer six times is a bit iffy to me.
