    Ah. Yeah. It’s been awhile since I watched those episodes.

    Looking back and trying to remember this stuff is pretty funny and confusing, actually. I can’t remember what first got me interested in transformers: the G2 comics or the G2 show reruns. I also can’t remember which I saw first: the movie or season 3. I do remember being very surprised when I first saw a season three episode (which I’m certain was Five Faces of Darkness) but I’m not sure if it was because I just didn’t know it existed or because I didn’t know about the events of the movie.

    I only remember the line about Galvatron and Megatron being the same guy because I watched that episode last week :p

    Do you have a sense of any consensus in regards to G2, Fenrys? I bring up G2 occasionally and get some response but it seems otherwise to be quite obscure to me.

    For example, there are obviously a lot of Beast Wars fans—I was one too! I get that a Beast Wars anniversary is coming up and there will be new toys in Kingdom that people are hyped for (some, of course, have mixed feeling, but it seems like there is very little push for updates to G2 characters and toys. And the ones we do get seem pretty half-assed? Maybe it’s just me but that Megatron isn’t doing it for me.

    I have some very very mild nostalgia for G2. I remember a G2 airing of More than Meets the Eye (only time I ever saw the old toon on tv) and I love G2 Megatron's design (would kill for a figure of that design rather than a half hearted attempt), but other than that G2 is a hole for me. It's on my read list though once I finish Marvel G1. I mainly came into the brand because my older brothers were G1 fans, so I got their old toys (broken G1 Prime, Swindle, Onslaught, Blaster and Top Spin are the ones I remember having) and was in the ideal age range when Beast Wars came out, being 9.

    Now I do love that we are getting that G2 Sandstorm though, Megatron may be half assed, but I'll always take an unreleased seeker, plus the Sideswipe set wasn't too bad either.

    Remember, in the same movie, Starscream immediately recognized Galvatron was Megatron upgraded, so there maybe something like with Timelords, from old Doctor Who, were they can still recognize each other after changes. I always assumed, after Starscream is rendered a bodyless spark, that Galvatron did a brief explanation as part of his take over. There was quite a flight to find more Autobots to kill, after all. I can't imagine nothing was asked, carefully.

    All I am trying to say is obviously there is a demand for the pit. There does not seam to have been enough made causing the price to double before scalpers even have it in hand.

    Question is what caused the demand... Pulse convention exclusive? Alternate colors? The Prosecutor and Kranix?
    I propose to it is the packaging.
    This is by far and the best packaging I have seen thus far. This would be the one figure that I would never remove from the box due to the perfect representation of the scene.

    I truly hope Hasbro will make more of these available. Although I love the item and what it means to me personally. I can not justify paying $150 or more on this right now.


    I do hope Hasbro will create more packaging with scenes from the movie.
    Below are some obvious suggestions if someone (Hastak) would like to create some AWEsome packaging and sets:



    Galvatron and Hot Rod fighting for the matrix inside a (Unicron packaging).
    “Rise Rodimus Prime”
    9C257771-7C30-4DE1-BAA8-22A270C35A13.png


    Hot Rod handing over a piece of Energon to Wreck Gar with planet with (Junkion packaging)
    “Bah Weep Grannah Weep Ninny Bon”
    2996F3EF-ABF3-40D0-9AC4-C2F1056394A1.png


    Soundwave Carrying Megareon and Rumble carrying his sight with (Nemesis Packaging)
    “Loyal Till The End”
    BC810CCA-8C4B-40A9-B102-5294CD21BCA1.png



    Oprimus Prime vs Megatron (Autobot City Packaging)
    “One Shall Stand...”
    BEBE4BC0-ABA8-4078-8345-266A61F4AD24.png


    And this:
    4721A685-DADD-4E28-9667-EBF7C0E8250B.png
    ~Till all are One!


    P.S. Please if someone has an extra
    Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Quintesson Pit of Judgement Figure
    to sell me for $69.99 plus shipping and tax and a $10 finder fee please pm me!

    The delay of the Quintesson Judge to hit retail saturation doesn't help either.

    This seems the right place for my biggest shit-posting speculation: Kingdom Galvatron will be toy/Galvatron II deco-ed, and then we'll get animation-accurate Hot Rod (magenta, dammit) + Galvatron in some sort of gift pack.

    I could see that. Pack in a blu ray or download code of the movie too!

    So, I haven't followed the news recently: is the Pit ONLY going to be a Pulse exclusive, or will it become available e.g. in Asia like most "exclusives" do?

    Look, I'm wrong all the time about what Hasbro will do, but them milking the movie molds while HasLab Unicron is arriving seems like the correct guess. How we get Galvatron II is more open, but I think my idea makes some sense what with SS Hot Rod not quite hitting the color palette properly to think we'll get a second run at him, too.

    I’ll take any and all recolors of movie cast members.

    Delta Magnus
    Orion Pax
    Magenta Rod
    Marvel/G1 Toy Galvatron
    A hundred different Junkions if we get a new Wreck Gar.

    I originally wanted a Galvatron so we’d get Energon Megs and a SG Megs, but I started reading bits of Marvel G1 aaaaaaand now I want a Marvel Galvatron more than my own lungs.

    I'd say the chances of us getting purple Galvatron at retail is pretty good given that's how he appears on the Kingdom posters revealed over the weekend. I'm guessing Marvel Galvatron will be in Selects and a two-pack with Hot Rod (in movie accurate colors) will be some sort of retailer exclusive.

    Purple Galvatron is definitely getting retail release especially due to wfc trilogy devotion to screen accuracy.

    There are several avenues they could take to release marvel Galvatron.
    1) Netflix Wfc spoiler box 3
    2) Leader selects
    3) stand alone amazon exclusive like with alternate universe Optimus prime

    Speaking of Galvatron, Hot Rod, and Rodimus Prime. It might be cool if the next trilogy was a sequel to this one and focuses on the Death and Return of Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime's tenure as Autobot Leader.

    Could be a good way to get the remaining Cars and Mini-Vehicles and whoever else is left.
