    Ya know this whole thing is about the price drop had nothing to do with hasbro or Takara right? It's an online retailer just lowering their price to get rid of their stock. that\'s all this is.

    As of rigtht now there isn't and never were plans for Takara to make a Liokaiser. Saying what Takara will or might do to make a Liokaiser is pointless when it's about a site just dropping their price.

    Although it was a good attempt, it was a still a poor one and thus not even worth 50 dollars. I am waiting fo an inevitable TT version.

    I literally voted for everything Victorion was in the fan-vote. Was not disappointed.

    That said, ordered Lio-Kaiser!

    I'm assuming PE hasn't done a Perfect Combiner kit for this because they too are expecting Takara to deliver the dual-bot torso.

    But if they don't i sure hope PE will.
    I hope they haven't taken the policy of only producing convoy add-ons.

    Damn. I will have to go for this. And knowing my luck, Takara will release theirs as soon as I have got this. :D

    I00% factual truth: Liokaiser is an affront on masculinity because Guyhawk is pink. Is the 1986 in your name in reference to the last time you updated your mindset on gender roles?

    Hmmm...nah.  $78 for two terrible tank molds, two passable jet molds, and skylynx, no, not worth it. It\'s true I want a liokaiser, I\'d rather shell out for Tfc\'s guy.

    I love this figure but I was forced to skip out on it because of the price. Maybe I'll be able to get him now. He can go with Wings of Honor Leozack so I can have a CHUG Breastforce, missing Deathcobra and Jallguar.

    I like the way Hades looks but after seeing a few vids I just cant trust it.

    I dont have much of a beef with the current official offering's individual limb bots, but that Sky Lynx mold in the mix totally kills it for me. I don't think the Sky Lynx version looks bad or anything, it's just such an awkward fit and the end result really doesnt look like Liokaiser to me.

    Somewhere there's an unpainted Alpha Bravo patiently awaiting its turn.

    Site throws it in sale because their supplier has a shitload of them in stock. And its burning money. Its a big box 10 of them is 1meter of shelf in the storage. And it is just sitting there imagine having 100 of m in your warehouse.
    I so not link 1+1 but i do see that its getting older and the older it gets the more you lose on it simply having it in storage.

    Actually with the current line seeing rodimus and the leaked optimus. I will not be surprised to see a leader skylynx. Consisting of 2 bots
    Different topic but felt like it mattered

    Going to wait for this to hit the price of the other Combiner sets before I bite. The four limbs are fine, but the torso is a slap in the face and would be going straight into a donation bin.

    Why are you so unnecessarily aggressive? He just said that his sister would love this toy and I'm pretty sure that it wasn't meant to offend anyone.
    *sigh*
    ***s are so ***...
    ________
    I totally love this toy and I need it right now, but I fear that TakTomy will release much better version next day and I'll be with worse hasbro version again. :-/

    If that's the case they can defend their statement. I am not feeding you.

    That's basically why a lot of people skipped this set.

    They (myself included) were hoping for Takara to make a more quality set. Or for 3P to enhance this one. But that or IDW featuring this group in a decent arc, thus peaking readers interest never happened.

    Which is why I'm still passing on this set even at $80.


    ....Well that and I really hate who they used to make Deathsaurus with. This version of him as an exclusive is probably why they cheated in that Poll and made that Prime Monkey the winner.

    It is still possible for perfect effect to do something considering they're about to release a solo figure for combiner wars magnus
