    So the Seacons will have that slipcover as well, I assume. Which is nice.

    Looks pretty cool, I might buy if it was a domestic release but I don’t think it’s worth the international premium.

    I know. I’m not to big on stickers either. My potp Grimlock Predaking and Elita are looking a little rough but the rest are doing okay. I will admit when I opened up Omega Supreme I squealed “NO STICKERS! I can just play with him!” It was a little aggravating to get a Titan and spend the first hour or two just applying stickers but it’s a double edge sword. With Star convoy at least there’s only a couple and you can be diligent with applying them unlike how some potp figures came

    Are you saying his arms won't flop and can hold a bot in gun mode pointing at you? That's what I meant.

    I did know about the combiner port into the top of the fist, but for the limbs I tried on Abominus, Defensor and Superion, either the robot flops over or the elbow/waist just bends down since it's so loose and the arms can't hold up another bot. I can see it if you're just going to leave the arm pointing downwards and it's not ideal if can't.


    I wonder why they didn't tampo those 4 stickers on Star Convoy? Oh well.

    I need 3rd party to make treads for the trailer....

    He actually looks BETTER in hand than the previous pics. Usually it’s the other way around. I can’t wait for him! Stickers suck, but at least they’re not preapplied. Hopefully toyhax will have better ones though.

    The POTP Optimus mold should of been use for a Powermaster Optimus/Super Ginrai insead of a regular Optimus.Only wish we get a proper God Ginrai in the future since the TR didn't do justice and if they do make it as a legit Powermater Optimus with the Powermaster gimmick and heck go ahead and the the rest like Breakaway(Getaway).

    Let’s see... the next two Seacons should be officially shown and up for order soon. Then maybe MABYE we’ll finally see Super Megatron.

    Because that's not what the PotP leaders were about.

    But I'm pretty sure we're less than a week away from seeing a "real" PMOP.

    It's a shame this character was wasted on this mold.

    Im dying for a Super Megatron reveal. Here's hoping that the retooled TR Galvatron mould will be miles better.

    Yeah. I think people who have never had anything invested in the Star Convoy character/toy in the past won't mind this Selects version, but it's so lacking for me.

    After the Star Convoy I'm not as hopeful asI was.

    Actually I\'m kinda cooling on him.  I\'m just not getting the excitement the Seacons sparked in me.
