Omega Supreme please. I could live with the others as leader class.
And Metalhawk in the U.S. Black Shadow was a U.S. exclusive in Titans Return. It's not an outside chance Metrotitan could see a titan-class release. If there is one, his odds are probably higher than you think.
It already makes sense. I was just pointing out that a release would cause more media buzz for his character. We could get more media exposure down the line...fans get tickled for the character ala Overlord in IDW...and then the window is closed. Nothing wrong with the progenitor being the toy to media rather than the other way around for the U.S. In Japan, no extra media would be required.
Probably so. Doesn't mean I won't go to bat for a release in the most appropriate gimmick line. If it were ever his "time", it's probably in WfC.
I would have leaned towards saying Metrotitan will end up as a Legends / EX release.
I think the Omega would fit a Cybertronian theme best.
But I want a Scorponok titan far more.
If that was the case I think it would have already happened. When Grand Maximus was announced, he needed 2,000 pre-orders within a three week span for Takara to decide their was enough interest in him to be made. If he reached 3,000 pre-orders he would also include a Primemaster/decoy suit for Grand.
It took sixteen days to meet the 2,000 pre-order mark, but he didn’t make it to 3,000 before the period was up. Grand Max also isn’t selling out in troves either. I think this shows that there isn’t a lot of interest in obscure Titan Class repaints, including Metrotitan. Takara might do it one day but it would be a very limited release for sure.
Personally, this scares me because it means Takara might not see any interest in doing an Omega Guardian when we get the eventual Omega Supreme, and my classics collection will never be complete until I have two Omega Guardians towering over my collection alongside Omega Supreme.
Were those numbers the entire production run (including Hasbro Asia) or just Takara?
I don’t think so considering there are Grand’s still in stock, but it still shows Takara that the interest isn’t there.
As it's a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive, I don't think Hasbro Asia is a participant. What you get from TTMall is what you get.
That said, places like BBTS may have run up the Mall pre-order somewhat when fans made a pre-order and then cancelled. I'm curious if the reason BBTS is delayed in their shipment is because they've had to negotiate for a smaller order than planned. Tough to say...all I know is I'm STILL waiting for a shipping confirmation from Grand.
Id say omega or scorponok
Star convoy should be leader if he's ever done.
What WOULD be cool would be titan class raiden
No option for Grandus?
Omega Supreme came instantly to mind before I even read the poll options. I vote for Omega.
scorp would be awesome
My preference is Scorponok, though I'd also be interested in Omega Supreme.
Beast Machines Grand Mal Megatron
BW2nd Majin Zarak
Chela, cuz we needs a Giant Golden Bird-Fort
Of the choices listed i would actually prefer Scorponok and Star Convoy as leader class figures. honestly I don't know that I'd want Omega in full titan size either....Maybe somewhere between leader and titan...
Which just leaves Metrotitan since the mold already exists and would seem the most cost efficient by far
I like your thinking. Titan Raiden to match Predaking. Plus Voyager sized Autobot trains would be cool as heck.
I voted for Metrotitan. I love Metroplex and would love to have him repainted.
I would guess Omega Supreme. Supposedly all versions were supposed to be made and the vote was to see which Titan would be made first. 50-50 for him or Scorponok.
Don't see how Hasbro would rain on the 3rd party OS' parade. FT's and DX9's versions are meant for MP scale and belong in the big leagues, where Hasbro's is college or junior college level.
I voted for Scorponok because it'll be a year after that release before we get Black Zarak, and I really want Black Zarak.
If they're going to go the MicroMaster route, it'd be nice if they bring back the Supreme Class (or something similar) for Grandus + the MicroMaster bases* (Skystalker, Countdown), etc.
And yes, Raiden is on my short list for upcoming Titans I'd want.
*I think the bases will get new robot modes if they get made - I don't see play sets being the primary way any figure is sold anytime soon.
omega supreme for just being in the videogame
