    Looks good but I'm gonna skip it since it looks too similar to POTP Prime. Would take a 3rd party upgrade for my Prime though...

    We're already getting an (radically different) Armada Prime though.
    Honestly, if they had at least painted the panels a different colour, I think it would have made a world of difference even though it'd still be inaccurate.

    I may not be the biggest G1 Megatron fan but his super form is badass and this would be the first ever time that version of him has ever gotten a toy. I wonder if we’ll get a Dark Nova figure at this rate?

    Sold. My guess is they de-headmaster the mold, which is the only real flaw in it, so it should be cool. It would be nice if he was bigger, but c'est la vie

    I'm bummed they didn't do more remolding to create the long nose truck, or do anything different than POTP Prime for the alt mode. They look pretty identical to me.

    Well, call me underwhelmed with Star Convoy. He’s basically nothing more than a slight retool of PotP Optimus with a new head, a star on his chest, and some paint apps. He even transforms into the exact same alt mode as PotP OP! Nothing about that alt mode screams Star Convoy. And the Orion Pax retool is just, meh. The original mold of this toy worked so much better.

    I just mentioned this in another thread, but I’ll mention it again: sometimes it’s better to just make a new mold for a certain character rather than retool an old one.

    While unlikely, they have re-scaled figures before for retools, ex. some Prime Predacons and TLK Bumblebee > SS Bumblebee

    Yeah, the alt-mode is crazy disappointing, but I'll manage

    But will this see a U.S. release? It was indicated in the Star Convoy thread that despite being called "Generations Selects" that toy was going to be Japan exclusive.

    Yeah, but why does he have a truck cab hanging off his butt?

    I'd love to see them do a BW God Neptune repaint of this mold in the future but given the G1 trend nowadays it won't happen for a long time if ever.

    I'd love to see the TTMall exclusives become shared Selects exclusives for Americans.

    Add me to the "a bit underwhelmed" crowd for Star convoy. I might pass. Might warm up later, we'll see...


    Super Megs and more combiner components? Hell yeah, I'm in!

    I think there's absolutely no way that's Snap Trap. Snap Trap doesn't have a visor, and that's not even his sword

    Dang, not a big fan of the Prime Wars trilogy combiners, but Piranhacon is my fave g1 combiner.

    This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I think it would be cool for them to be released individually over a couple of years.

    I'm happy a Super Megatron is finally happening, though the apparent mold choice isn't wowing me. Still, better than nothing, and nothing's all we've had for 30 years, so cool.

    Yep, that\'s Snaptrap. And he\'s a combiner too. Look at the legs, almost like Silverbolt\'s....and Scattershot....and Hungrrr.
