    having just sold a set of brand new dino's. i had to give them the once over before i sent them out.

    i can confirm that they can definitely be a sharp and painful experience fresh out the box.

    but once i remembered how they transformed. i was able to manipulate them rather painlessly afterwards.

    my MFT set is f'ing great and i move them with ease. the DX9 sets were just how i remembered them.

    I do not mess around with my bots a lot indeed, but I enjoy the latest bots more to transform.
    This set is great indeed but I like them in bot more than alt mode.
    Transforming Slag back I did notice if you turn the back leg around in a certain position the same time you fold the flap it goes much easier.

    I'd rather see MS focus on the '86 movie bots. I would like to see an attempt at a legends sharkticon for example.

    Make an honest attempt at an Arcee that isnt a shellformer. How about a junkion 2-pack so one can ride the other. Also with multiple heads and other accessories. Heck, do a wheelie and include a fun sling shot accessory.

    Feel free to post news here.
    I was asleep when this was posted in the MS Jazz thread and I worked 10 hrs today with phone access only during my 20min lunch.
    I didn't even know there was an update until you said something lol.

    There’s been no release update for legends Zeta Superion or Cang Predacons for a while. I wonder if this means an extremely slow rollout from companies that aren’t used to pushing out Legends, or I wonder if they’re rethinking their selling strategy and might do two packs like the NA or MS combiners. I’d prefer it if they did!

    Or their production schedules have been screwed up by the plague, like so much else.

    So aside from NA's Lucifer, what are the really stand out molds between Magic Square and New Age? I'm looking at getting into them and have MS's Devi legs on preorder, but am not sure who else I should be looking for.

    Personally enjoyed how tiny NA bumblebee 2.0 is. Their jazz is quite good too, but you should be aware of magic squares upcoming jazz which looks better all around as figure period let alone as legends class one. I love the car mode mode for new ages datsuns. I think I’ve heard people love their insecticons too.

    Edit: Lol @me saying to be aware of ms jazz when it’s right above this message

    NA Galvatron, both of their Shockwaves, both Soundwaves, MS Megatron, MS Motormaster… NA Seekers like you said.
    There’s quite a few, whatever looks good to you.

    Cang released colored proto pics less than a month ago for mini firmament. All said and done, with the state of the world right now, I'd say that's a damn fine update.

    I think NA Seekers by far are the superior or the two. I also think NA Bee and Cliff are superior just due to their slimmer profile and CJ Head. I think MS Megatron is superior to NA if you don’t mind the transformation. Beyond that I feel like the two companies are on par with each other. It’s mostly based on what design and aesthetics you like.

    Saw this on ShowZ the other day. I haven't owned a complete Voltron since the 80s. Depending on what the final price is, I might have to get this one.
