    PP05W/M are not expensive in comparison to other 3rd party toys IMO. With the quantity of weapons they have it could easily be sold as a stand alone $30-$50 weapons pack like the popular gears of war sets. If that is the case the figures themselves only come to $60-$80, well within other current figures.

    TFClub did a survey as to what recolor Hercules would get, and Shattered Glass came out on top. I don't see any purpose in them doing the colors in anything but club comic accurate with white and red, if the purpose is to homage that toy they might as well do it right.

    I think you have to remember that the Constructicons have only ever appeared in two color schemes in fiction... green/purple and white/red. Any other combinations has never had fiction behind it.

    I think one of the real reasons Neo toys have a lot of vehicle parts in them is in Japan beast toys were not popular, so they were trying to give the vehicle fans something to play with.

    Hey guys. Love the Podcast.

    Just wanted to chime in one the Perseus redeco.

    As a fan since G1 I welcome anything that's different in the Transformers Fandom. New color schemes, new designs, anything fresh and distinct.

    That being said I have never read the club fiction, and don't own a single Botcon figure. However I love the Perseus redeco. I think it really shines and actually looks better than the original Hercules (which I also don't own).

    I also welcome a sixth member of Uranos! If anything that makes me want it MORE. Cause, you know, its different.

    I'm more focused on engineering and how a toy stands on its own merits than how slavish it is to its reference point. Just my two cents!

    You definitely want to get a Tidal Wave GodDog. I think he's the closest to a base former we've seen in years. I got super lucky and picked him up 100% complete for $2 at a yard sale.

    That. That Tidal Wave is one of the best Transformers of all time, in my opinion.

    Another comment about "Perses", I don't think they spelled it wrong, there was an actual greek titan named Perses. I don't think they just misspelled Persus.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perses_(Titan)

    As for the sixth Uranos member, for all we know the 6th member is a backpack or a Targetmaster for the combined form. The five original members might be perfectly able to combine into a normal Superion without him. We really need to wait and see a picture before we complain.

    I wonder if the 6th member won't be something more like the Seacons, and he'll just turn into a gun. I'd be really stoked with a black SR-71 that becomes a sweet robot and a sweet gun...

    We recorded this at the end of a very long hard week for me at work, I don't know if anyone is picking up on it but I was nearly dead in my chair recording that.

    Some thoughts post-podcast:

    Shafter is my first and only iGear product, and while I don't hate the guy, I also don't find him interesting enough that I would want to track down every MiniWarrior they're doing, especially considering the larger size/higher pricepoint. Had they remained at Rager/Spray sizes, I might have at least looked more closely at one or two of them.

    I love the Perses colors! No, I won't shell out $500 for one anytime soon, but there is something interesting and unique about the white and red being applied to a design I'm so used to seeing in green and purple that works for me. I know at least in my case that the appreciation for the colors is totally independent of any Shattered Glass connection, and maybe that's the thinking that lead TFC to pursue those colors instead of the obvious yellow or orange.

    LOL TFCC, nearly went off without a hitch. Of the six we got, I might argue that Slipstream fits the bill for the Iron Klaw of the line, but I guess that depends on how one defines any of these figures being the equivalent of Klaw for Joes. Ultra Mammoth is the only figure in the set I would make the effort to get but the BBTS price is ridiculous and I haven't found anyone interested in grabbing either Action Master homage or Breakdown. Can't afford to do it without offloading all five figures!
