    This. We need a proper Leozack torso.. A Jarguar of some sorts and two new tanks made from the UW Computron Nosecone mold. There. Much better..lol.

    Damn, I wish I waited to buy him.  It would be nice if a third-party company would do something to make the torso a little better. Or give us the proper two boys that are supposed to be there.

    It's not a "price drop" if the price is going back up TOMORROW. It's labeled as a "DAILY Deal", so one would expect the price to go back.

    It's more like a temporary sale, isn't it?

    Anyway, me thinks this combiner is too obscure to have sold as well as they hoped. I'm not really familiar with where he's from, personally - except that I'm aware he's from the Japanese TF cartoons, meaning most Americans here would be pretty ambivalent about this combiner. OR, maybe the price just turns people off (ironically, the same people who do pay extra for 3P offerings! :lol ).

    I just hope these things are successful enough to make more later. I like the box sets just fine. Much better than having to wait on two separate waves to complete a combiner! :rolleyes2

    obscurity isn't the issue with him it's the torso. it's just all wrong...it's not even the right components and it just doesn't look good. i'd have settled with a cyclonus repainted as leozack and a legends bot that targetmasters into jallguar....it's not selling because it's not done right.

    people know who liokaiser is. you're really underselling the american audience knowledge of the japanase series because you haven't seen them yourself. i own the dvd set for victory and i wanted this to be a good alternative to the 3p liokaiser...but the questionable decision surrounding the torso turned me off on getting him and this price drop isn't enticing enough for me to get him just for the limbs and micron since those are the only parts of this set i'd actually want to own.

    That's entirely subjective.

    I've said several time I think the Sky Lynx mold is the best choice for Liokaiser's torso.

    Upward swept wings on chest: check
    Lion helmet: check
    Green and black: check

    Yup, everything seems in order.

    that's subjective too and i disagree because 1) it's deathsaurus (or it's supposed to be) 2)it's not at the very least leozack. so it's not in order at all. i can put those colors and that helmet on onslaught it it'll make 2/3 of your acceptable checklist.

    cyclonus with a new head and new combiner head as leozack is at the very least a better attempt at liokaiser.

    But then you lose out the chest wings that Liokaiser has, so it would look less like him.

    He's talking about the combined mode as a whole, not the torso by itself. The sky lynx torso looks the most like liokaiser

    well chest wings aren't selling the figure and the biggest complaint has always been his torso.

    personally i'd be okay losing the chest wings to gain a leozack

    I see people brought this thread back and I check the latest posts to see whats going on... and people are bitching. I thought they had moved onto the next Hasbro TF already.

    Anyway recently I had been looking into finally getting this guy. I was already sold on the limbs back when he was revealed and as long as the gestalt itself looked liked Liokaiser (it does) I was satisfied.

    Well, the color reference is factual truth, doesn't have anything to do with "gender roles." So, unless you have some sort of firsthand knowledge about what his sister does or doesn't like, it seems like you're pretty far out of line and/or needlessly aggressive here.

    @Ronbot1986 does not appear to have any posting history of inflammatory posts and it's true i've got nothing to go on besides the context of the post itself. I may well have stuffed my foot in my mouth, but again i'll wait until they decide to defend the statement (or not, their choice). The way it reads to me, he thinks this Liokaiser looks like a "toy for girls". If i'm wrong i'll apologize for being soooooo hostile by taking the piss out of his post. I'm human, I don't mind admitting when i'm wrong.

    He fits on the back.

    "Maybe at this Tokyo Fair guys!"
    I think the reason PE didn't do it is because they don't see a market, a first I thought it was because MURICAN GEEWUN! then Gorrira and Jinrai Prime happened as for Takara I think they were out of money for Unite Warriors because Ruination was the only set to have zero original tooling, and
    Hellbat's dead in IDW so they can't unless they resurrect him, use Deathcobra, or resurrect Hellbat and use all seven
    Personally, I don't think POTP was rigged, by Hasbro I did see a lot of people openly admitting to breaking the rules, but now that my Star Saber and Deathsaurus fan girl salt has worn off I think Primal is popular enough that he would have won even if no one cheated.
