    Oh sure, that's definitely feasible. But the guy I was replying to was saying they should do Spychangers.

    Y'know what I just realized would be a problem for a T-AI Titanmaster? The big cone lights on the side of her head.

    Maybe they could have a swappable head/peg piece, one with the cone lights that is just for humanoid form, and one without the lights that actually functions as the peg for head mode like a normal Titanmaster head

    why would you want them to be locked behind this HasLab and thus not reasonably available?

    I mean, they could just make her a normal T-AI figure that just has the same height as a Titan master. Have a leg bend at the same location and you have the same result.

    They could, I just saw a fair number of suggestions for specifically an actual Titanmaster and was just like "yeah that'd be doable, and neat", but then I thought of that (solvable, but in a way I'm not sure they'd want to) issue.

    Tbh the main thing that would confuse me about her being a Titan master would just be, why. Like there’s been no headmasters for years, and none of the bots in this set are headmasters. So I’m surprised to see the assumption of her being one.

    Honestly I’m surprised they even made the chair Titan master compatible to begin with.

    I know you did not just post this. FFS, read what I've been saying in this thread over and over about CHPS and how it doesn't exist.

    I swear, you guys sometimes post this stupidity on purpose and it's really old and tiresome. If you're not going to read all parts of it, don't comment and look silly.

    It is strange that they are showing us in comparison photos a feature they cut... That is odd. Maybe Tier 3 is going to be several small things?

    Well Cerebros is 100% why because he's a headmaster and was seen riding outside on the firetruck at least once. Still it is also the only shot for a TAI figure so I imagine they've thought of that too.

    There's a big difference between pretty basic 6" figures that mostly reuse parts and transforming figures to the point that they're not really comparable.

    To be entirely fair, Morg from the Galactus HasLab was entirely new sculpt. Still though, on an engineering level, nowhere near as complex as a Transformer

    From what I understand, the engineering for a Marvel Legends is much different than a Transformer. And even if they do a new mold, they often make them with parts that can be reused for a different character.
    I think that they didn't tab the windows in fully because they worry about the prototype breaking. Hopefully that's the case.
    Doubtful, as all those either got figures as recently as Earthrise, or are getting ones in SS 96. Plus the Dinobots are all leader class figures. Heck, Sunstreaker and Wheeljack are part of that target set with Hound that's coming.

    If we do get any deluxe, and this is a big If, it'd be something like a Sideburn in special colors. Either super, or mid way through powering up.
    Quite possible. They are teasing the Titanmaster compatibility too much, and by now they have to know we want those white missiles/barrels. So I could see a Titanmaster or two, the barrels, and maybe some effects parts.

    I loved how they addressed so many of the common questions they received, and then said nothing at all about Bluebolts' missiles. Even had them plugged into the original making for quite the difference during comparison time, yet not a peep... Surely something so big you'd highlight.

    I'm not sure whether to become optimistic that it means a change that can't be discussed. Or the more realistic pessimistic take, do everything you can to not draw attention to it (even if it's RIGHT THERE and so obvious and moments ago you talked about how Prime got his missiles) because it's not going to change no matter what. :(

    Given Evan apparently didn’t include blast effects at all because they overused the Jetfire ones, despite people asking for new effects parts plenty of times over the years, I kinda feel like they’re somehow really oblivious.
