    ok I gotta say most of the moaning now seems to be people moaning about other people moaning. I'd say this thread is done



    (moaning about people moaning about people moaning over collectors items ftw)

    What I don't understand is why some people are so pissy about companies releasing things for the wider world. If you're only in the hobby to make money then I think you need to evaluate why you collect transformers. The characters are not yours to own. What is it with some people about not wanting to share things with people.

    (Especially this whole Henkei seeks debacle, Japanese fans didn't get to see those figures at a convention and to be fair i don't think anybody would be happy to pay the same price as a fortress maximus to have a complete set of them.)

    The Henkei commander is not going to be the same as the convention one, plus this is really the first time the japanese are being given the opportunity to own this trailer for a figure in their domestic market. FWIW I think the japanese lost out on having to import Magnus and Nemisis prime to have the right coloured cabs for the main released trailers.

    Can we give it a rest please.

    Henkei Thundercracker is exactly the same mould as Botcon Thundercracker, but with chrome and a few minor paint app differences. Which make it look slightly different.
    Oh, and new packaging. Which makes the packaging look different.
    This new release of Powered Commander is the same as TFCon Powered Commander, except it has chrome. Which makes it look slightly different.
    Oh, and new packaging. Which will make the packaging look different.

    We know NOTHING more about it yet; there could be new paint apps, or different accessories. All we have seen is pics of the TFCon version with bits highlighted on the pic.
    So perhaps you should wait until we've actually SEEN IT before jumping down people's throats with unnecessary and inflammatory comments about how they apparently fail in your eyes.
    Oh. And speaking of which:
    Hardly necessary, was it. But I guess some are blinded by the need to troll others (which, I have to admit, you're very good at doing. Kudos).
    And with that, I am done with you. Feel free to start this crap again with me when we've actually seen what is getting released. Until then, kindly keep your trolling to yourself because if I'm not interested in it, I doubt many others are either.

    The chrome makes it look completely different. Only a fool would think they were the same release.
    Can people stop bitching now?

    We've already seen a picture of the finished product with actual chrome. And to use your own words, only a fool would think they're completely different. Exact same deco, exact same color placement, with chrome.

    About trolling: do I really need to redirect you to some of your very own prime examples of trolling? You're not in a position of accusing anyone of trolling dude.

    And it doesn't look like the TFCon version becase of it.
    I don't go out of my way to put people's backs up. You seem to make a hobby of it.
    Edit: Since you went back and edited your post, I'll do the same.
    So shiny chrome looks like silver paint, does it?

    This is clearly all a socialist, fascist plot by FansProject.

    They probably went to TFcon to check out firsthand if it's feasible to set up a beachhead in Canada, making it easier for them to invade North America and trick those who love liberty to give their money to a bunch of huckster socialists. Before you know it, they'll be coming out with PETA Commander or Migrant Worker Commander kits, all extolling how greenhouses gases are really the enemy, or how we should keep the borders open for all.

    Well, I say enough of that! FansProject have shown their true colors! I say from now on, we buy American! Enough of our money is going to bailouts of fatcats and foreign nationals! We should press Congress to drill baby drill in ANWR so we can get enough petroleum to make as many Power Commander kits as we like, right in our own borders! [/Glenn Beck]

    some people just like to own limited edition items not because their worth more but because their unique and special and some people just want bragging rights

    E.g. I know my Sonic Convoy set is not worth anymore then what it was 4 years ago and its not really that rare but I still enjoy it and its a cool talking point when my freinds come round. Same goes for my E-hobby insecticons

    frankly I don't care about the scalpers who are now having a slightly harder time shifting these things since their still going to make a fair bit of cash.

    my only bitchy issue is the timing and how soon this comes after the con. Maybe it was a communication breakdown I dunno but their was plenty of time to deal with it.

    Also this goes out to the people saying its a chance for Asia to get what were getting. ummm as some one from the EU I can deal with never having a chance to get botcon stuff or only getting it at inflated prices so I guess they can as well.

    As an entirely neutral party in this thread who is only interested in actual sourceable information:

    Where has it been stated that the picture is of the -finished- product, outside of any assumptions made in this thread? I only ask this because given that the picture was found on 4chan (no slight to the brave soldiers), I'd like a bit more context.

    We've never seen a running change after pictures of CC, SC and the PC had been posted. I don't see why it would be different this time, the toys have probably all been produced already since the release is imminent.

    So the "finished product" side of things is a reasoned assumption based out of this thread?

    Again, trying to sort out what the absolute concrete facts are at this juncture, not attacking any viewpoints.

    Red Line mentioned a few pages ago that the release has been delayed so that further changes to the deco/box could be made to make this release even more distinct than those "final" pictures made it look.

    They are still 2 different releases.

    The TFcon exclusive has the box of "Energon Sandwiches" and sticker on the packaging

    The "Henkei Commander" has chrome bits and a different packaging

    Box: probably just a new sticker to replace the "TFCON TORONTO EXCLUSIVE" one. Boxes have probably been all printed already.

    Toy: I could see seem handpainting the taillights differently, that's about it. I can't see what else could be changed as you need to keep a minimum of yellow cues for it to still scream Powered Commander.

    I'm so happy I learned the word "conjecture" from Phoenix Wright.
