I thought they were going to revele a guest this week ??
So apparently we're getting 5 pirates, 5 knights, troop builder pirates (which makes sense) and a Decepticon that may or may not be a pirate. And I guess the customizing class figure and attendee freebie (assuming it's not part of the 10). I guess that means it's another 5 figure box set this year. So hopefully 2 voyagers & 3 deluxes again like last year. Unfortunately no word on whether or not the box set will include a single faction or split between the two.
Still holding out for a single faction in the box set though. Looks so much better displayed that way (ala 2011), especially since it's likely that there will only be 5 figures & not 6.
Cool. I agree that it should be a single faction again. 2011 was the best received boxed set and it's not solely because it was animated. The boxed set gave you a complete team.
So Star-Seekers vs The Knights of Cybertron?
Does the bolded bit come from a new tweet?
Also, I was under the impression that they had at least implied that the boxset would be half pirates, half knights, so I was hoping for six in the box. I agree, I'd prefer all pirates, but I'm doubting that's what they'll do. In a "versus" theme, you typically want to represent both sides in the piece of merchandise that everyone, attendees and non-attendees alike, will be able to purchase.
Chances are the Star Seekers are based on the crew of the Kalis' Lament from The Dark Heart of Sandokan.
It's going to be strange if they do a Skywarp figure two years in a row.
I heard a little rumor that it's a 5 box set combiner from the foc molds
Star-Seekers vs Neo-Knights
I'd be surprised considering there are six versions of those figures already and they're doing Roadbuster as Ironfist too. A seventh version might be a bit much.
I sure hope not. $350 for a FOC combiner.
JUST a bit...
Yeah, it had a link to a statement Pete made over at Allspark. And I was just under the impression that it was a versus theme. Also, if I wasn't attending this year, I'd want a single faction in the box set. That way I don't have to pay out the ass for souvenirs on the secondary market just to complete whatever team I wanted from the beginning. But that's just me, I guess.
^ I'm HOPING this means that the supposed rumor is false. Those molds should never be used again.
I would take it to mean that based on Pete's comment.
I think it would be mistake to release yet another version of those molds.
The only acceptable version for me would be the Wreckers in G1 toy / comic colors, which I hope Hasbro Asia does as a box set some time.
The molds are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be but I would not pay $350 for it either. I am even a little worried about them using that Beast Hunters BulkHead mold for Cannonball as someone suggested as mine was rather loose.
Eh, I'm still convinced Cannonball is gonna be Arms Micron Breakdown - maybe with the Silas head since it kind of has an eyepatch.
Would FunPub have access to Japanese-only molds?
I remember at one of the round tables that the use of Takara molds were to high in price and wound not be used so ..... I don't see it happing but I could be wrong
That's because Beast Hunters molds suck. I don't get why anybody likes those molds. There crap for $12.99 and beyond crap at Botcon prices.
they might be crap but I bet u hand over yr $ when they come out lol
