    So? Their point still stands. It's not the "OG Megatron".
    That's gaslighting.

    Hopefully they get over their obsession with the "shaded corners" look by the time Straxus is ready to go. If he has a lot of new tooling they will probably repaint him before long anyhow.

    Really interested to see how A-Level Bee comes out, and how they make Springer a leader when it reuses at least SOME of the Siege voyager sculpt.

    I will not stop banging this drum:

    My guess is that they literally could not afford to design and release Siege Springer at a Voyager price point any more.

    Oop I retract my comment. I genuinely forgot Widow Maker is happening.

    That's gonna be 2 copies of Straxus for me. One for cel shading, one that I wipe it off with alcohol.

    Partial could mean anything tbh. There must be substantial enough changes to make a leader class

    That's not how it works. If it was a re-release or minor retool, it'd be a very minor cost.

    Yeah, good luck with that. Tampos like that are MUCH harder to remove that regular paint.

    Okay, finally catching up now that I can access the stream. I think the big takeaway is that TF One was purposefully designed with the characters being roughly the same size so the toys could "scale" properly at the Deluxe price point for audiences who want those characters.

    Also, the colors on Prime is literally the colors used in the movies. Evan definitely tired of the complaints.

    It's still G1 Megatron. Stop trying to couch your tantrum in therapy language.

    If it looks like Megatron and it acts like Megatron, it’s clearly Brawl

    They did say they were making him "beefier" so I'm guessing the big changes are to the shoulders, arms and legs.

    I'm getting the Cybertron boys and the rock lord, but major bummer that Armada Galvatron is missing. Bumped to wave 4?

    The 4th comic character will probably be Optimus but excited for the reveal for that. I wasn't able to fully pay attention did they say what month the next stream will be.

    Was not expecting Straxus to show up later on but that's not a bad thing. So happy we're finally getting a new one especially that's more true to the comic design. As for Springer being a retool of his last toy I honestly can't see how else they'd make a new G1 Springer figure that could do more to be more accurate then the Siege figure that already did a lot to be close to the G1 design other then maybe possibly retooling certain bits to better match his animation model.

    "Whenever I go to Evan's desk I see G1 bots, dinos, and a character I can't talk about yet..."

    I for one look forward to seeing Springer with a hat.

    "When they sent us the size chart he was gigantic but we said no..."

    Funny. Eff the scale chart they wanted car bots to fit together.

    Why do you come here just to boo?
