    Interesting. I wonder if that's why Nightstalker was released first, with Steeljaw possibly being delayed to retool his weaponry.

    Nah. All this was done to match the original figures' weapons.

    Nightstalker has weapons that look like Ravage's while Steeljaw will have his own whenever he sees a release.

    I canceled my preorder for this because of the nagging feeling in 2018 there wont be a Blaster release. Has there ever been a ranking of most popular g1 characters for japanese fans?

    Possibly. It would make sense if Steeljaw was being released along with Blaster...

    ...


    I'm perfectly aware that the Encore release of the G1 versions of these figures came with the weapons that the MP's did. That is not a debate. I also, however, know that EVERY other use of the Ravage mold had the weapons that Nightstalker wound up with and Steeljaw came with the weapons that Stripes came with. My own personal OCD would have me swap their weapons for some mold harmony.

    To repeat: My own OCD would have me swap their weapons.


    Once more, for the hearing/reading impaired: My own OCD would have me swap their weapons.


    When I had a G1 collection, all G2 repaints/remolds of G1 molds were in the G1 collection, along with every version of Ruination. If I still had a RID collection, Ruination would not be part of it. Don't look for logic, there is none. I group molds with whatever series they originated from. If for the sake of conjecture the next movie had a RID mold thrown in, say a green Sideburn, I would get it and throw it in my RID collection. IF I still had a RID collection.

    That's really cool, man. I honestly never thought to do that. Thanks for sharing.

    Nah. They just want Steeljaw to be released alongside Blaster, that's all. Plus these four cassettes were the four released with Encore Twincast and Soundblaster. The characters in the cartoon will be shown when Blaster is announced.

    Does your OCD also flare up if you were to have Titans Return Quake without the Hardhead head just because the mold originally came with the Hardhead head? You must be the only guy on tfw2005 to actively dislike remolding of toys that used to be straight repaints of each other.

    Not a big fan of this set mainly because its remote repaints and mold uses that didn't exist. Like wingthing I know it got a 2012 original mold redeco. But it was an all entirely different thing. And the feline mold is the weakest mold.
    Saving grace would be Enemy but he is just paling in comparison to Rumble and Frenzy. Just not that iconic.
