Wheeljack is coming next!!!
wow is these are legit (in terms of being released) there churning them out fast arn't they
What is the source?
Looks like it could be from the Hong Kong toy show that was just on.
Are we talking reissues? Masterpiece line? Classics?
If I were Hasbro or Takara right now I'd be flippin' pissed! It time they put their foot down and do someting about this. Something like making OFFICIAL reissues of these guys!
probably knock offs
and if so...........HAHAHAHAHAHA i told you so to all the people who said these molds were completely gone!
there's magnus and hoist parts in there too. both of which are plentiful and cheap on ebay. There's no reason to do them...
The molds ARE gone. this guy reverse engineers them, something thats extremely expensive, and even then doesnt work all the time (with his floppy-as-fuck swoop KO).
It is next KO version
Just after Devastator and Mirage
If it's official, bring it on. If not, I hate these KO's.
It's not official.
And I don't think those Ultra Magnus parts are going to go over well at ALL with HasTakomy. Seeing as they *have* a functional, working mold to create that toy, unlike Wheeljack, Mirage and Swoop...they have to be getting very unhappy at their market being stolen for stuff they could actually produce.
My favourite G1 Autobot, yet such a bad, bad toy in my opinion.
With even the official toy being so dodgy, I'd hate to see a knock-off.
this sounds like old news, i heard a few weeks back that devastator, wheeljack, prowl and mirage are going to be the next knock offs.
so it's just waiting on pics of prowl to show up now
I found the guy responsible for this.
Sunstreaker and Metroplex are due.
I even found the Wheeljack he's casting from ...
Sunstreaker, FINALLY. The only other G1 bot I need. A good KO will work just fine.
I couldn't care less about Wheeljack, but I sure could use a repro set of wings! I hope they market them alone.
We all had a fair idea any Autobot car was fair game, but with a Devastator Giftset due, and now the possibility of Metroplex, a lot of larger items seem more likely.
I've been watching his purchase history on eBay for a while now. Seems like anything he takes in gets repro'ed somehow.
Ultra Magnus, check.
Ones I haven't seen yet:
I don't know if he's doing full KO's or just parts though.
Neat. If Takara does an official one I'll get it. Failing that, here's an alternative.
wait ... that's a Metroplex pillar in the near the recasted Wheeljack window, isn't it?
Metroplex would be worth it for the pieces alone.
