    Now, I've personally been kinda-sorta wanting this group in modern form anyway, but this question stems from all the talk and turmoil over extra members in groups that are meant to be five, or what to do with six members if they were ever remade (Seacons). Being these guys ARE a six-bot group that all combine and would therefor meet the basic criteria, would there be enough interest in something that only existed in Japan? What are your thoughts on something like Liokaiser coming out as a 3P set?

    EDIT: I should have added--let's say price point is 'reasonable' in your eyes for a good third party product. Something you would be willing to pay. Because yes, I'm the same way on that note.

    I have the original but I'd still love to see an update. Hopefully it would cost less than an original though.

    3P products is a niche market to start with, so a 3P Liokaiser would definitely hold interest.

    It'd be great, considering how much I love Victory, I think Giant Sized would be enough. Then they should go and make Star Saber and Victory Lio so the guy will have a sparring partner :D

    Yes,I like to see this get made. If their not going to make the Breastmaster gimmick and figures then don't bother. All the smaller guns need to be able to combine into the Gestalt gun.

    I'd want Six basic sized toys that form Liokaiser. So the 3rd party price won't be so high.

    Wouldn't mind Six deluxe size figures. but if the brastmaster gimmick and figures are included. the 3rd party price will be exspensive.

    Didn't TFC mention their interest to do a Liokaiser even if it wouldn't be for a while?
    I hope they do, cuz we've seen what great Jet-formers they can do.

    Personally, I'd want the individual robots to be the size of a 3rd party Saber who I'd want to be the same height as fansproject SteelCore what with them both having the little robot buddy.

    Just give me Victory bots, ALL OF THEM, so many good designs in that series, that the toys just don't do them enough justice.

    I say do them all and in scale to eachother

    Maybe, if they ever release a properly dubbed (with new sounds as well) the Japanese "post season 2 G1 shows".
    I can't watch a single episode without getting a headache :thumb 
    So I voted No.

    Yeah, I would freak the fuck out if someone decides to remake LioKaiser. Don't care what size, as long as they're articulated and have the animal partners

    A reissue of the original toy, official or not, would be better.

    Hell yes, six members, breastmasters, don't mind if it's legally distinct or not, would definitely prefer FP/MT size since I have more of their stuff and being cheaper is always a bonus.

    Technically a company could make the optional 7th member as well which could be cool
