    Man... the Combiner Wars series doesn't sound too good. Granted, I haven't watched any, so I'll probably wait until it's all out, but man, I guess I shouldn't expect much from it...

    Also, Bat Primal's swords are from PRiD Wheeljack, not RiD Drift.

    At least it wasn't as bad as when you forgot that a majority of the Beast wars Predicons were corrupted Maximals.

    Here's how I can see Pretenders going down
    for the deluxe pricepoint, make the base figure a Scout/Legends
    include armours part akin to the RID Minicon battlepacks that homage the Shells, peg onto the legends and create a posable representation of the Pretender shell design

    for the voyagers, use Mega Pretenders, keep the base figure as described above, and add the transforming shell

    for Leader, we have Ultra Pretenders which would be similar to the Megas, but now feature the additional Vehicle shell (which now has a bonus base mode)

    Legends could be the Monstructor guys (no shells) that can still combine.

    Titan class.......Majin Zarak?

    Maybe it has, but it's something that might only be noticed months away from the actual event. I'd keep a close eye on the swim team having issues down the road.


    That aside, I'm more with Vangelus's view on Masterpiece alikes than Seth is. Third parties are at least still trying to copy Hasui (& prior Masterpieces) style of adding little details that weren't part of the animation but break up space. They aren't always successful, but they are trying.

    On the other hand, the official Masterpiece toys are going in another direction, which I don't honestly care for. The figures are very plain, and they also will do things I'm not a fan of. (Hollow bits on Shockwave, as well as his backpack stand; leaving the bumper on Ironhide). I get why Seth might be fine with it, but I'd have at least liked him to acknowledged the design change a bit more.

    Ah, Vangelus. You were saying you will think about trying Bionicle stuff one day? Forget it. Lego has announced it's ending after 2016 again.

    "Aaron" is Hebrew for "lofty" or "exalted."

    That'll be one hell of a reprolabel set! Gator Megatron was all green. I'm not surprised they decided to just include a head.

    What's next? I'm leaning towards Duocons.

    I thought about just saying "first" here as a joke only I would laugh at, but then I realized only I would laugh at it.

    I remember Vangelus suggestion a good "Super Robot" show in this episode, but haven't been able to find it again. I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for a good anime to check out. Anyone remember what it was called?
