NEWAGE TOYS H-13 Lucifer - Legends scale STARSCREAM (and Seekers?)
Done so much flip-flopping this last weekend. Keep thinking about wanting MP Superion and Defensor rather than legends size, and from there whether I really want to have the bots I have as MPs in legends as well.
For now I've decided to sell MS-B30 Fighter team as I have no attachment to the characters and would rather have the space for other cons. The rest of the cons will stay as I don't own any MPs of them.
But I just keep looking at the bot shelf and thinking, should I sell em and get MP Red Alert, Smokescreen, Hoist and Inferno instead? I already have Tracks and really don't care about Grapple. Decisions decisions.
The bigger question is, do you box up your MP collection and go all in on legends? Or do you sell your MP collection to fund going all in on legends?
sadly seems I've gone the other way. Bought the MP Smokescreen and Red Alert KOs, leaving just Hoist and Inferno to fill, so guess I'll be drawing up a sales list of a couple of bots.
Not sure I can bring myself to let go of the S1 cast yet so I guess just S2 bots for now. Trailbreaker is just too awesome a figure to let go.
EDIT: Think I've decided to keep my S1 legend bots as some of them are really just neat. Got rid of S2 and cancelled my S3 preorders, went for Zeta Superitron and will go MP for Defensor. Definitely all in on legends cons though.
Kept thinking about selling em, but then thinking how much I look forward to legends Hound/Mirage etc for fiddling.
Magic Square checklist so far
These are the only versions I'm missing:
-clear and clear red prime
-clear, clear red/blue, and piss orange Mags
-plus hauler and gold reflector
I'd give my eye teeth for that hauler and the 2 clear versions of prime.
EDIT: I do not have the new TB obviously, not sure if it's that much of a change to warrant a purchase.
Aw maaan, what is that light-blue-glass Trailbreaker which looks so much better than the dark-blue one I have? I didn't even know it existed.
it was only revealed today. but it isn't confirmed if it is a custom or a variant. i posted it in Magic Square Trailbreaker !!!

This looks really good
It’s cool, but I’m still waiting for them to finish the Stunticons. Probably will start to see this set release from early to mid next year, late this year if were lucky.
I'm cautiously optimistic,
The Stunticons are the first Combiners we will get from either Newage or Magic Square, so we won't know how sturdy or successful they'll be combined till they are all out.
When it comes to sturdiness and posability, IF are still ahead of the competition for Combiners.
But I'm sure both companies will learn from the Stunticons and improve on their next entries.
Cool! I expected it to be out in 3 years
Prepare for your wallet to be devastated....in 2 to 3 years when they finally release it.
Well that didn't take long,
Must be a new record, it's even a physical prototype.
Looks okay. I prefer the aesthetic MS is going with but I’ll reserve full judgement on the NA constructions till I see a colored prototype of at least one or the full bot.
Does anyone know what thread I could see progress on the g-02 j20
Usually I always prefer the glossyness of NewAge, but when it comes to the Constructicons I definitely would prefer something more matt, I just hope MS doesn't make them too pale.
It will come down to the look of the individual bots for me, I also hope at least one of them does a black thread version.
Does the NA Devy have a dedicated thread? I searched but couldn't find it.
I found out much later than everyone else
New Age Legends Scale Devastator
Looks pretty bad right now. I know it's very early so I know they will pull it off. Hope these are on the larger size though.
