    Guess we'll have to wait for a translation.

    Red Suzuki looks better. But the bot mode is too ugly with that giant chest/belly.

    Under Device Label, there's a "Product Comment from Toshiba". Can someone please kindly translate it? I assume it relates to the Blaster USB hub. Sigh, I hope it relates to postponing, rather than canceling, Blaster... :banghead: 

    My preorder at HLJ is cancelled already... :(

    So now that we have the software from the Device Label Ravage/Tigatron available for download from Takara's site...how long until someone makes it useable for everyone?

    I have my Ravage ordered at TFSource...but unfortunately I combined shipping with the Blaster USB Hub...so its not shipping...and with no word on Blaster's release, I'm not sure when I'll actually get Ravage!

    I downloaded the software from Takara and have it installed, but my understanding is that there is more to the software on an unwriteable portion of Ravage's memory.

    I understand the criticisms but these 2 Alternity figures are the first transforms I've been excited about, and therefore ordered, since the last masterpiece.

    I think I will give these new Alternity figures shot. If I like Cliffjumper I will purchase Bumblebee next.

    TFsource canceled the listing. I had the exact same problem - I had to email them to get it sorted out. I ended up canceling the whole order.

    You should contact them pronto.

    I can't help but feel that Alternity figures are a bit overpriced and kind of lack that aw that Binaltech gave me but damn the itch that I gotta scratch by buying these 2. I can't help myself. I haven't been buying much, with the movie stuff everywhere and I even limited my TFA purchases when they were going strong. I really hope the next Alternity figure is something amazing like Wheeljack or Jazz and they are amazing.

    Unfortunately there's nothing about Blaster. It is just a casual comment from the Toshiba team who worked on the software part of Device Label, such as how it took 15 months to complete the USB Memory figures.

    I have another project I've hardly started, too much personal crap going on :( 

    In this interview there aren't many new exciting revelations, though.

    I am very pleased with my Device Label Ravage. There is a 3d Ravage that runs around your desktop when you plug it in. Pretty darn cool. Too bad about Blaster (which I did preodrer) but I guess it's the universe's way of saving me money. :lol  or :cry  Not sure how I feel about it anymore.

    Someone related to 2010 can pretty much only mean Rodimus Prime, right?

    Probably, either Rodimus or Galvatron IMO, maybe a Ultra Magnus armor if they feel a lil' bit cheap;

    Yes, alternity, at firs gave that kind of vibe, especially considering the size and material (compared to binaltech). I ended up cancelling my preorder of red convoy and regret it.

    But the universe tell me that I should have it, and indeed, I got one for extremely cheap, a red convoy :D . And when I fiddle with it, the more I realise. That this line is on par or even better than binaltech.

    COnsidering the the dimension of the bots when transformed, the auto morph gimmick, is way more awesome (in my opinion) than binaltech.

    ALthough I kinda resent the Bumbleboobs, I still won't cancel my preorder of him - since swift is my car of choice :D
