    I saw a rumor in the Allspark discord (maybe a screenshot from here?) that the Autobot ones are coming at least. I think between that and Fangry being made there's a good chance we see Horri-Bull and Squeezeplay too.

    Wouldn’t put too much hope in takara selects(seacons, super megatron, star convoy etc.) since its technically no longer a thing. Premium line has replaced it so we don’t know what they’re planning after that limited line finished with its figures planned out

    Found the set today. Did not pick it up. $92 after tax to pick up a Fangry and hope I can make some money off the rest? Probably going to wait on this one.

    Hypothetically. Any one interested in Nemesis?

    or anyone selling Fangry and Bee?

    group buy.

    That’s where I’m at, if I thought I could easily flip the rest and recoup costs I’d pick up a set and just keep Fangry, but unless you’re getting $40 for Primal and $30 for each deluxe you’re going to be losing money once you pay shipping costs.

    Plus that’s assuming people will even want to take Bumblebee and Primal without a hefty discount for the undesirability factor. Just ain’t worth my time and effort on this one.

    Glad to hear there's hope; the Destron Jr's both had US mainline heads so they'll probably be easy knockouts. If the Autobot Jr's get done as well and use the two heads from the God Ginrai set that'll be perfect.
    I thought the premium figures were a separate especially since the differences between base mold and Selcects figures were always more than what the premium figures have been (plus premium lines aren't all that new). But that said if it's really done that's unfortunate but either way hopefully all the remaining HM Jrs get done somehow

    they haven’t announced a takara selects since the terrorcons which was late last year? Plus it’s the fiction that was made for selects concluded. Their runs arnt very long. a year to year and half or such and that’s all. Premium replaced it as their exclusive fans targeted niche line and they weren’t more expensive. Roughly the same price point. $40-45 deluxes and $55-65 voyagers(import prices)and so on

    they’ll still release the hasbro selects as they’ve done but the era of heavy retools like seacons and the other teams is over…for now. Takara will probably bring back the idea but it’ll be called something else.

    Irrelevant. Repaints don't cost less to make on an individual basis.

    It's also not Hasbro's responsibility to provide for every fan's missed opportunities, it would be impossible to decide runs based on that and they're not going to risk overproducing a figure for something like that.

    Plus his robot fists are new tooling (he has a grip tab for transformation at the wrist that Grotusque has at around the knuckles), and that new Stat Display chestplate is extra mass as Grotusque's equivalent actually forms the lower portion of his beast head. Definitely wouldn't call it "simplistic", subtle, yes, but not simplistic.

    I think the real news, is New Jersey was first for a new figure sighting.

    Last time it happened, I think, was almost a decade ago.

    So what I'm seeing is we have New Jersey, Texas, and (based on ebay) Arizona. Any others?

    Of anyone gets this and wants to offload the Primal and Blackarachnia, hit me up. Those are the only two I'm interested in from this set.

    Yup. I have a lot of confidence this will be wildly available in the US. If you live in the States just be patient.
