    Basically, it's TakTomy's current presentation on the TF story in Japan. Melissa/Marissa kisses Convoy, which gives him special powers. It's supported by a manga and (I think) a radio show. Convoy, Rodimus, and Autolooper are all fighting against Legion, who looks like a Windcharger body with a weird Megatron head (he's got this crazy tongue). Excerpts from the manga can be found at www.fantofan.jp

    That's what the story is about. As far as what the story ON them is...I don't know. I don't get it. I'm not sure anyone does. The best explanation I've heard is that it's an attempt to target older collectors, but it's still bizarre to me. But hey, surfboard sword and remolded Hot Rod head--I ordered 'em all from BBTS

    Y'know, I'm not usually prone to rants about things. I like to think I'm a tolerant guy, and it normally takes a lot to raise my hackles. If I don't like it, I'll usually ignore it.

    But... Takara, what the HELL!?

    You take the Alternators, ditching the die cast of Binaltech. That's fine. You make up for it with excellent paint jobs and nifty accessories. That's all good.

    Packaging little human figures with them... okay, I can deal with that. Not my thing, but some people like that. The figurines seem underage, going for the whole 'cutsey' thing. Whatever.

    But then we'll put it in highly suggestive boxart, and pair it with a manga and radio show that seems to be one step removed from tentacle porn?

    ARRGH!!!

    This is not FAIR. I like the paint apps and accessories, but every time I look at the box art a little voice in the back of my head says 'Every time someone buys a Kiss Players figure, Legion molests your little sister!'.

    You wanna be pervy and creepy and oogle underage figurines in underwear and bondage gear? FINE. Do it over THERE. Don't get your perv all over my transforming robots!

    ... Sorry about that. Rant over.

    It's kinda funny to see people going - "I'm buying this great Kiss Players robot toy .. BUT I'M NOT INTERESTED IN THE GIRL FIGURE AT ALL!! NO SIRREE, NOT FOR ME NOPE!!"

    No problem if someone likes or hates the KP girlies. I just find the "making sure everyone knows I'm not there for the girlie figs" humorous, like a fanboy with a wife/girlfriend who takes every opportunity to 'casually' mention the fact that they've landed a woman. :)

    I think nobody buying Kissplay wants to take the risk that someone will assume they are buying it for the figures.

    Well maybe a few people do, but they're comfortable with their perviness.

    I'm not comfortable with my perviness at all. I'm actually very far from a perv at all. I'm just comfortable in the fact that nobody but me really cares about what toys I buy. I showed my girlfriend the box art for Melissa and Convoy, and she thought it was "Cute." But she's more into anime without robots than I am. My friends that are into TFs are pretty unphased by it as well.

    She did think that the comic sounding hilariously sexual though.

    i don't know i am a big fan of kissplay myself, *ignoring the box of course* to me it's not much different then gundam or macross *if you ignore the comic story completely*

    i also think it's pretty cute/cool to have that girl on top of convoy like that lol *shoulder*
