    I've pre-ordered the BBTS/Hasbro exclusive SOC set and the TT Boxed set. Just need to figure out which direction to go. Need to decide soon so I don't miss out on the Legends Godbomber release if I go the Hasbro route.

    Been kicking myself ever since seeing the cab remold on the Takara version, Godbomber made it worse. Preordered and will probably keep it unless it turns out real ugly for some reason, but the chrome and clear windows sound great.

    Yup. It's gonna be a long road for those of us just wanting to complete the trio of Headmaster Jr kids.

    I don't care about Ginrai and Super Ginrai, I'm getting the Magnus Prime because he's so much closer to PMOP than PMOP is. I missed the Ginrai, this set here would have been awesome had I not rather have the Magnus version and will have paid much less once I resell the other figures in the set back off. Godbomber if I can get one later will just be a plus. Plus, Hasbro was supposed to release one too, not sure though if for their PMOP or the Magnus Prime, I would imagine for Magnus.

    I've got them both pre-ordered as well and I'm going to keep them both. The Takara set is a definite buy/keeper.

    The BBTS Siege set, I'm more excited for Pounce, and I like the Thunderwing headmaster over Magnus Prime since that mold is now getting three releases, it's not as exciting. Seeing all the Broadsides taking up shelf space (where I shop) is not making me like Tidal Wave in the slightest, and the Metalhawk repaint just looks ugly to me (the colors are just too much, even if it is an homage to the original).
    I hope they look better in hand.

    Just ordered the 'last' Legends Wheelie and Go Shooter from babababobobo78babobooba or whatever his ebay name is. I have a sinking feeling its gonna be even more sought after come November.

    Mine already hit the US shore from him (as well as Shockwave and Cancer). I too have a feeling he's gonna become hard to get as people will want to complete the trio.

    Seeing as how TakaraTomy decided to reveal this set once LG Godbomber was released, it would not surprise me to see them announce full transtectors for the Headmaster Jrs once LG-EX God Ginrai is released.

    Luckily I had Go Shooter and Wheelie already, and just picked up a Ravage/Bullhorn and Shockwave/Cancer on eBay and Fangry at Target this week, while waiting for these preorders to open. Excited!

    My Minerva is going to use a cheap Carzap I got a while ago when Nonnef had talked about doing a Minerva conversion kit for it. Don't think that kit is still happening but Glaug's model for the replacement chest is on shapeways, so I'm covered there.


    Even with my custom bodies for the Autobot Headmaster Jrs, I've already determined that if Takara-Tomy eventually makes full figures of them I'm going to repurpose the customs as new transtectors for the human characters and use the new figures as the sentient transtector characters introduced at the end of Masterforce.

    Only reason I'm not going with Carzap for Minerva is that I already have goshooter and nightbeat (with the beelzeboss chest and takara headmaster) from that mold and getaway will be getting his movie body so I'll have a headless breakaway

    Was expecting chrome on Super Ginrai's cab grill and perhaps silver paint on the grey parts.

    I'm actually glad the changes aren't extensive so I don't have to justify double dipping to myself. I much prefer silver paint to chrome on Godbomber.
