    Its because alot of fans are realistic and understand retools and repaints will always happen and certain characters wouldnt event get made otherwise. And two, alot of fans are completely good and fine with repaints/retools for the most part.
    Retool discussion and ideas has been a thing since the beginning of transformers, of course in a vacuum we would all love new molds for everything but that isnt nor has ever been a thing in the history of the franchise. In a vacuum vector prime is a good toy, if you're someone who immediately thinks remold = bad then you will and continue to be always disappointed (see your continued talk about Vector Prime)

    They get red alert from that

    I'm excited for Filch, I want Strika and Bontanica. It's true they push more women. I never said it negatively.

    how...? I really don't see a "quota" (implying a protocol-ized desire for recognition and effort into representing more or more-accurate female characters specifically) is misogynistic. Really, no snark... just blindsided by the assessment.

    I expect him/her to post a picture of a receipt for at case-worth of Filches in a few weeks to prove they're not a misogynist.
    Better yet, they should put them up for auction on e-bay because anyone can print out a fake receipt.

    How is it misogynistic?

    I grow concerned for the longevity of this board when the merest mention of women, even plastic toys of women, without a or shred of any personal opinion, is seen as misogynistic. He simply stated there is a fembot quota which has been a long running theory since Legacy Y1. It is you who assigned his words of a "fembot quota" with any sort of negative opinion, not him. He never said the fembot quota was good or bad, in any way.

    TLDR: simply mentioning women isn't misogynistic. Stop inventing things to try be offended about lol.

    B-b-b-b-bbut you said female!!! MISOGYNIST!!

    I have been saying this for four days straight.

    I am fine with retools. I just don't like seeing one vastly different design reused for another vastly different design. Especially when it involves a notable character.

    I can love Sunstorm repaints without liking Legacy Knockout from Jazz.

    Yeah just had to reply to some replies to some of my posts, but I'm pretty much done talking about Legacy Vector Prime, and for partially unrelated reasons, probably activity on this forum

    I said it better on the last post of my profile, but hating on the figure doesn't get me anywhere, nor does the discussion with people who fundamentally have different standards and preferences to my own, I've realised I don't gain anything from being active here discussing TF leaks and nor do I have anything to lose by leaving, just gaining more free time and more money by dialing down my TF spending similarly

    Anyways to bring things more on topic, who else are we thinking will pop up in the Wreckers v Mayhem capsule? Also how big will this capsule be? Will it be only 3 offerings like Mayhem this year, or will there be more like Pre War?

    I still say I would love an updated Magnus. He isn’t a main member but after Prime I can’t help but always make him an honorary member.

    You don’t have to love it but you can choose to accept that some characters are more going to end up as repaints/retools and that’s just how it is. There isn’t an alternative where everyone gets a new mold.

    Saying “this should have been a new mold” is technically fine but we can’t always have that. So then you judge it on the merits of what the budget allowed it to become. In this case, Vector Prime was given the “heavy retool” option. Did it work? I personally think it worked well enough.

    Im betting just one more release. Which will probably have G1 Skyquake in it. I cant really think of anyone else to be in it. If they were to do a magnus id probably be Prime magnus( which would also make sense if my theory of Prima being a Prime Optimus Pretool is correct)

    I mean we can always have that lol, at least for main characters

    I'm just gonna regurgitate this point before I log off

    Hasbro doesn't dictate which characters go in the retool spot, designers do. They could've just made Sunstorm the Voyager of this wave, and saved Vector Prime for a later Leader.

    How much later? Not at any time next year, because we know Onyx Prime and The Fallen take up the new-mold Leader slots. Will the year following even have a theme that he'd fit into? What if this was Vector Prime's only chance?

    (also, why a leader? He was no bigger than Cab Optimus Prime in Cybertron, so Voyager is the correct scale. Unless you REALLY want him to be a voyager-sized leader class guy that i know you're super big on)

    (also also, ha ha ha ha, retailers wanting an orange starscream over vector prime, as much as i love sunstorm)
