    I agree, this would fit most.

    When Takara reveals theirs and it's just a more show-accurate deco, he'll praise it despite being the same molds.

    For anyone who thinks this will get two new molds for the body from TT: kinda doubt it. The Japanese-exclusive molds (Groove, who got a US release anyway, and Blast Off) had retool potential into Afterburner and Strafe. Something tells me they wouldn't do two entirely new, exclusive molds unless they could be retooled or redecoed into something else.

    "I won't say I'm surprised, but WOW has Takara once again totally blown Hasbro out of the water. Look at that incredible deco on the Takara version. THIS is Leokaiser, not that piece of crap American imitation. If only Hasbro could learn something from Takara."

    Except, for the most part, the combiners thus far have all been relatively close to their US versions. The heaviest work was done on Nosecone, and even he has reuse potential as Drillhorn.

    That's the key. Of the 6 members, 4 already have molds available that would only need heads. Meaning Takara could focus the bulk of their efforts/costs on the torso.

    If Takara is doing Liokaiser, seeing as people think they would use their Nosecone for Drillhorn, you must realize they'd use it for Killbison as well, considering the 2 had nearly identical base bodies.

    Well if they did that might not be such a bad thing, Nosecone have a port for his gun on top of alt mode and his gun has ports in the side to connect others so with that assemble you could get something like the antiaircraft gun look, I think its more likely to be brawl but either way wouldn't be an issue.

    I'd like for them to use the UW Nosecone retool, but the fact the heads for the 4 limbs already exists makes me think they'll just use those molds. Just as Drillhorn got the drill attachment, they could just as easily make up a new cannon setup for a Brawl-based Killbison.

    Still another month for the CW version, but it seems I'll just likely pick that one up as a placeholder until Takara releases theirs... after Megatronia and way into 2017.

    Sure. That's one less person I have to worry about, in the event that it's popular enough to sell out. @WheelWave140, you don't need. They're only a new set of awesome looking head sculpts and colour combinations, that will look famazing on your display.

    Looks great. I'll get this and attach Timelines Leozack to his back...meaning only Jaguar is the odd-man out.

    If you can accomplish this without jury-rigging something, let me know.

    Someone already did using Sky Lynx. He can peg between the wings on his back.

    Do you want to have 2 more of the terrible Brawl mold? And the rest being all repaints with just different heads? Why would anyone need more of the same molds again when they can spend their money on the new Titans Return toys.
