    Because some of us:
    A) have jobs and see how decisions are made and sold
    B) have been targeted for what are called "push polls"

    Anyway, I thought it was cute for Groove to jump back to November while I was being begged to order Liokaiser only to fall back to January when I wouldn't commit.

    The most recent Unite Warriors comic confirmed the line ends with Baldigus. The story literally ends quite definitively. There will thus be no further additions to the UW line.

    or Takara could always start a new story with the remaining combiner wars figures they've yet to release?

    Kind of like how they stopped making G1 toys after Rebirth ended the cartoon storyline?

    He's a really forced homage and the molds have been done to death, so it isn't surprising to see it clearanced hard. In fact I would say it is encouraging. We need good product for $130, not this cash grab nonsense.

    Man, if only someone had done a Leozack/Jaruga upgrade kit I\'d be all over this, as is I might get it if I have the money to kick at it at some point.

    Got mine when he came out on eBay for $80 and I still really enjoy him. Picked up a KO white and black PE bruticus hands and gave him the actual black hands and white feet from superior and defensor and the opposite for Sky Reign and he looks good.

    I have zero attachment to Victory. I couldn\'t get passed the 3rd episode so I\'m not picky. just to have a version of Liokaiser was enough for me.

    Same. I was messing with him last week and forgot how much paint detail he has and said to myself "yeah that platinum title is pretty justified" in my opinion but I said I like him a lot

    That price makes it tempting to get.

    As for "afterthought" by hasbro to make this one. Every CW mold was designed with two in mind. This was always the secondary for Sky Lynx for the US market. You can see it in the combined mode head for Sky Lynx already in how they planned it. Same as how you could tell generations Tracks was going to become Wheeljack because of the gun he came with being Wheeljack's shoulder cannon. In the era that led up to CW and CW itself, every mold was created with the intention of getting 2x characters+ out of them for cost efficiency.

    The price drop has me curious if we might be seeing a Takara announcement soon though under a new product banner as they prep to announce their version of POTP. Unite warriors may be done, but they will still have a new combiner line coming up with the potential other new combiners in POTP.

    Totally not interested in a remold of Skylynx with 2x that shit mold * forgive ny language * brawl. Add 2 aerialbots.
    I prefer to see retools of the nosecone mold and 2 bots for the torso which is very much doable.
    I get why hasbro did this and i get why takara isnt using this set. Sinply because it has 3 weakest of the line molds in the set. And not close enough to the original.
    Either we get a takara version or non at all.
    Seeing it go on sale actually increases my hopes. Since we know what happened with the computron double release. Where hasbro is still trying to sell theirs while the takara is sold out.
    Takara knows what the collectors want. Hasbro goes in between. Releasing kid toys with a flave of collector wishes. But never fully delivers.

    I think Cyclonus is a better mold for Leozack than POTP Screamer. Considering his alt mode is mobile SAM artillary, Jalguar getting turned into a Legends Triplechanger Targetmaster wouldn't really offend me. Especially if they were able to pull off gray and green up top and black pants on the torso. Might fudge LZ's color scheme slightly but meh. Throw in dedicated hands and feet, some repainted Titan Master buddies for the Breast Force, and a bunch of clubs that click together to make that segmented greatstaff/polearm thing and TT can have lots (more) of my money.

    There are plenty ways to do this. Simply following the g1 idea is the simplest way. All that is needed is a deluxe+ upper part and a deluxe- lower part. So basically both bots would be slightly larger/smaller then a deluxe while able to connect together.
    Sell the entire set a 6 figure set and even able by hasbro to use the 2 torso bots as a set.
    Replace both those brawls with nosecones with 2 different top pieces which is really easy to do looking at rook->nosecone. And get 2 descent remolds for the 2 planes.
    Takara knows what we want and perhaps are waiting for the right moment.
    Another indication might be the flack that the hasbro set received makong them go to the drawing table to implement fixes like they did for bruticus. But yeah this requires at least 4new different bots.
