Yup! He's in this month's Figure King magazine as well
And already I don't like MP Screamer's details.
Gigawatt getting a Takara release seems like a good opportunity for anyone who misses out this Thursday on Pulse.
wait what's thursday?
I still dislike Hasbro did not sub license the DMC emblem for the Time machine. They’re fixes out there for this, but a tampo is much better than a sticker or a water slide decal.
October 1st; although Gigawatt’s due in October, that’s the first time I’ve known of an exact date.
Can't wait for Gigawatt.
Every time I think I've talked myself away from buying Battle Convoy, I see more of it and I want it more! Gah!!!
*Taps hat with want* And for my next trick I will make one of the most anticipated figures in years disappear!
*Bows before applauding crowd while crying*
Ohhh ok thanks, $29.99 right?
We already knew he was going to be released, we just need to know if it's a retail or Takara Tomy Mall figure.
Kinda weird they\'re calling him V2 when this is V3
For the bajillionth time, that's not how version numbers work. You only update the whole number value when the product is all new (or in software/gaming, at least the new version for the year, or a major content update that warrants a new title banner or something). Revisions merely update the decimal value. MP-11 only counts as "1.5" because it shares a large portion of its tooling with MP-03.
Regardless, it's still the third iteration of this character in MP form, hence the layman's terms of "V3" (or even "V4" if you include that horrible, original "Starsgreen").
As for me, I'm sick to the back teeth of seemingly endless MP versions of the same characters, which is why I'm not bothering with V3.
The convention doesn't change because people don't understand how to use it. Those people are just wrong, end of story.
What "convention"; BOTCON?
Then I'm happy to be "wrong" with my use of lexis (and welcome to the club!) and happy to not spend my money on a third version of this toy. More money for 3P and KOs!
