    That is probably as likely to happen as much as Hun-gurr and Grimlock sold separately with the new accessories like I suggested.

    Hasbro Pulse and Takara need to give us an Orthia with new parts and new paint jobs to make her look better.

    While they're at it, Megascream could use some new chest parts as well, and they should repaint Takara's ghost Starscream to give us Thundercracker and Skywarp as combiner limbs.

    Megascream's chest piece could look like this:

    I would love them to do the voyager POTP Starscream as a set. Do TC and SW as well as Buster and Hydra.

    Amen, brother. Failing Hasbro's initiative, do you think we'll ever get a KO of this Hun-Gurrr down the line?

    My set from Pulse is on the way, kind of nervous and excited to get it. My POTP figure was pretty stable for the most part and QC free. It seems the biggest issue is the backward and forward leg movement for combine mode. I may have to try the eraser fix if he's too unstable Minor/Repaint: - POTP Abominus Hip Fix

    Needs more than just an 'eraser'. He needed the joint fixes that Volcanicus received.

    I have hunch they will do Orthia since they never released Greenlight over in Japan. I have all those figures but would buy a Takara Orthia in a heart beat.

    wouldn’t mind if they repurposed Starscream into Leozack even if that means sacrificing Jallguar.

    I don’t know is Takara can be persuaded to Liokaiser from scratch even as a masterpiece. It would be awesome.

    He's talking about Megascream's limbs in the Deviations comic. And what moulds to use.

    Oh yeah.. I forgot about that. I doubt TT would do it.. but they do tend to dig deep..

    No, I’d rather have Buster and Hydra with TC and SW.

    And I'd replace these 2 with their US counterparts.
    I'll let you know when mine arrives.

    Not me. My copy is so loose that I can't stand him up. The hips are terrible. Might have to display him as individuals instead of as a gestalt :(

    Mine's coming on Monday, so we'll see how it is. I have no hopes for it to be 100% solid, though.

    The continuing reports of looseness is depressing to hear.

    Update on mine:
    I jammed erasers in the hip ratchets and that helped immensely. The only 2 outstanding problems now are Sinnertwin's combiner joint and overall combiner elbow strength. His left knee is very floppy since the combiner joint is bad. It's not just a loose spring, but the actual ratchet interface has loose tolerances. Others have fixed this in the past by removing the pin holding the body together and putting 4-5 coats of furniture polish on the static side of the ratchet joint. I didn't feel like doing that much work yet so I just posed around it. Same for the elbow. He can't point his gun at anything because it's too heavy for the elbows. He can point it straight up or straight down. Because of my copy's knee issue I have to point the gun down or the weight pulls him over. He can still do some poses as long as he's bending his left knee back and puts most of his weight on the other leg. Now to get the TDW upgrade kit and make him look even better.
