    Will this toy contain diecast metal?

    that said, I still want to get hot rod.

    Who knows...at SDCC Hasbro said that all ALts for this year are out and that next spring there will be 2 more and it is not known if the line will continue with the movie. So I would say it is pretty much up in the air for alts. That means after camshaft there are only 2 def new alts.

    I do plan on getting kiss Hot Rod. alt Mirage has one of the best molds and I think it'll look great in flaming decals.

    I'm afraid its a no on all counts. As far as we know all the figs in the KISS line are plastic and not dicast and so far there have been no announcments by Hasbro about bringing certian paints to the Alt line such as Mirage into Hot Rod.

    Anyone have a pic? I haven't seen a pic yet.

    And I don't know why Hasbro wouldn't do a Mirage repaint. They've done repaints of every other mold...

    they will, eventually. they didn't say that after the movie was done that they wouldn't go back, they said that they wouldn't do alts DURING the movie run...

    Hasbro also said that Characters from the new movie would filter into current lines; certainly that would fit well with Alts.

    Its not so much perverted as it is just a cultural difference. Girls in long shirts and bikini bottoms are seen as a cute thing in Japan, not as sexual as they would be seen here. There's a certain sex appeal, but no more so than a toy of say Catwoman or someone like that in a form-fitting costume. Probably less, actually.

    Me, I'm not a big fan of cutesy girls in anime. That isn't to say I'm offended by Transformers that come packaged with them, though. I think its a strange line, but a nice one still. That said, I hope the line does well. Because mixing transforming robots and cute anime girls is obviously a desperation move by TakaraTomy.

    Yes, while the actual clothing it self isn't taboo, the fact that it is on what appear to be extremely young girls in some suggestive poses is what most people have issue with.

    There's rumor, and counter-rumor. We'll have a better idea when someone in the fandom can personally confirm if Kiss Convoy has diecast or not.


    If there is, it's at least six months away.




    Not necessarily. They could be the Scion and Mustang repaints.

    But the crucial point is that both come from the same source. It will be diecast.
