    a very simple thread. i'm curious at what price point you guys expect UW's iteration of victorion. i personally think she'll be at the more-available price point.

    She'll probably be a Takara Tony Mall Exclusive. Which means BBTS will have her for $160, and everywhere will have her about $20-$25 more than Bruticus.

    Wouldn't be surprised if she's a TT Mall exclusive, in which case they'll have to do something special with her to get me to spend that extra money, especially if Wave 3 of Titans Return ends up dropping around the same time because there's a lot of stuff I want from that Wave.

    I think Evil Victorion could be a regular release because the TakaraMall exclusive would be a special combiner with Deathsaurus as torso (I mean, Sky Lynx correctly repainted and not Liokaiser)

    Depending on how much retooling they do that's how Liokaiser might end up, though Computron seems to give the finger to that. But Takara has released consecutive TTMall exclusives for UW before; UW-05 & 06.

    There's no rule that this has to be regular price just because the next one after it might be a TTMall exclusive.

    Lynx Master was $160. My guess is Vicky will be the more standard price and labeled UW-09.

    Then Liokaiser will be the $160 UW-10 capstone as Hasbro and Takara look ahead to potential beast themed combiners in 2017.

    There is no rhyme or reason to what is and isn't a TTMall exclusive. There's also no reason why Lynx Master has no number and is an EX release, either.

    As for evil Victorion, I'm thinking that since it's a fembot combiner, Takara will market it as such and release it at regular retail.

    The first question should be; Is it going to be worthwhile at all ?

    None of the non-tradition combiners have been regular releases. Defensor was the weird one that was an exclusive. So Deceptorion will be a TT Mall exclusive, and most likely, so will Liokaiser, especially if the don't retool him.

    I have a feeling she's going to be a Mall exclusive. Already expecting to pay 160 before shipping for her.

    Yup, and with the Yen increase she'll be a lot more than the $160 (U.S)that the TTMall UW sets cost before.

    If one of those characters isn't Nightbird then they've wasted the use of that Dustup head sculpt.

    Why would people assume she is decepticon? Is there a pattern I'm not aware of?

    The Victorion molds were teased in the pack-in Lynxmaster comic, while in shadow, had lines heavily implying the characters were Destrons/Decepticons.

    Also, the leader of the team (the character using Pyra Magna's design) called herself "the wife of the Emperor or Destruction." Given that the term "Emperor of Destruction" has typically equated to "Decepticon Leader" in Japan, and that Deathsaurus canonically has a wife, it's been a pretty logical conclusion to jump to that the UW version of the Victorion molds will be evil.

    Plus one of the designers at Takara who usually teases things tweeted an initial sketch of Takara's take on Victorion where she had a second set of eyes much like all the Breastforce including Deathsaurus and definitely not something that Hasbro's Victorion had.

    Sorry to mention this but the fiction tied to both the Super-God Masterforce and Victory manga series are not part of the main JG1 continuity. Case in point is that she resides in a continuity here Deszarus had a civic duty to protect those on his space station. However, the main continuity had it be destroyed before it struck Earth.

    But also, I am believing that she will become an official JG1 character when this is made. :)  And since this is based on the year 2021, the "Emperor" being referenced here might be Megatron. Just because the other to that it could be are either Scorponok and Overlord. :p
