    Yup, that's why I'm hoping it won't take so long to see a proto.

    Not if we spend it on other plastic crack first. ;) 

    To be honest, I read about that the other day and I frankly never remember having that issue. It's been... um... probably six or seven years since I sold mine? I don't remember. So yeah, I can't say for certain, but I never remember having that problem, and I did have the Hasbro version (imported from Toys 'n' Joys when that shitshow was still a thing. It was cheaper than NZ retailer... until they charged me a ton more for shipping). Mine did have some white paint slop on it though and I sold it before I knew how to remedy it.

    The method would be to save $20 dollars per paycheck and put that in a house account in your bank. By the time this guys comes out (I'm thinking 2 years) you'll have enough to purchase:cool:

    My pay checks are too inconsistent and small to do that though. :( 

    Also, $20 will buy me more toys. :p

    I'm really curious how this line will do. I have no nostalgia for these characters but I kind of want to collect them as a funky Cybertronian MP versions. I also think a shelf of Cybertron/Galaxy Force figures won't really look out of place next to my Cross Dimensions shelf.

    You know if they follow the usual pattern for Manus, I am going to wait to buy a "Galaxy Noir".

    A Galaxy Noir figure would be all kinds of awesome. If I'm not mistaken, Galaxy Force/Cybertron was the only one in the Unicron Trilogy not to receive some sort of Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime during its run. Armada had that deluxe Nemesis Prime and Super-Link had Grand Scourge.

    YARP. I already have the original mold and I like it in the Red and Black "Galaxy Force" color scheme, so if I'm going to get this one, I'm waiting for the black repaint, same with Galaxy Meteor.

    If they make a Leo Breaker and repaint it to Nemesis Breaker. There are so many possibilities with this figure.

    The one thing I loved about cybertron the most is the fact that the toys transform the exact same way that they do in the montages in the cartoon. And galaxy convoy is one of my all time favorite designs for optimus. There's something about a flying firetruck that gets the blood pumping.

    Also, think of black Wingsaber!

    You know there is not good reason not to make it so Leobreaker could become the arm of Starscream too.

    Now this, I would buy as soon as I could afford it. As a teen, I waited and waited for a black repaint of Cybertron Optimus, but they only ever released the "Menasor" repaint of the legends class figure, to mock me.

    TIL: Either Cybertron's animation really doesn't hold up nearly as well after 12 years or I was much more easily impressed in 2005.

    Damn, how didn't thought in that, nemesis breaker it's the equivalent to a nemesis prime, only the thought of a MT galaxy convoy into a nemesis redeco with nemesis breaker makes my jaw so juicy.

    While I don't necessarily need a whole new figure of Cybertron metroplex, a big black Metroplex axe/staff as a bonus accessory couldn't hurt either...I always thought the Axe+Lion arm look made him look like a crazy wizard.

    I'm probably crazy, but I think Galaxy Convoy's design also looks great in Nova Prime colors. Sure it's not a sleek space truck, but with some minor design tweaks (on the shoulders/arms), I think it works.

    Part of me wants a Star Convoy retool, a crazier part hopes they'll just do a Star Convoy.

    I really should watch TF Cybertron again, as it's been a few years since I've last seen it.
