    20 posts per page, 745 pages needed to pass Reva...that's just shy of 15,000 posts needed people, hop to it!
    (or we could just be happy that there are more posts than Reva...more than the Rancor even...)

    Feel like the thread would get locked by then.

    seriously is there a known reason long running threads randomly get locked like with Haslab unicron and MP-44? Unicron especially was weird.

    It's scheduled for fall 2025. There will be 3-4 updates between now and then. Offhand i remember updates on other projects for:

    Tooling done
    Package art
    1st prototypes

    However, do expect a sh*t-ton of spam posting that bumps the thread unnecessarily. If you backed it, you'll get the update emails ahead of this thread updating with real info.

    The HasLab posting listed fall of next year but the Takara listings had it for spring. I remember reading that the reason why the first date was so far out was to account for potential delays because of a UK law or something to that effect. Realistically it'll probably ship out some time between the two dates.

    Might have something to do with Omega being twice as large.

    Yeah. This is two big toys that combine in various ways with each other. I have no problem with waiting on Omega Prime.

    Best part is it’s already paid for and it’ll be something (hopefully) awesome showing up without impacting the budget at the time.

    I got to say, after thinking back to it and messing with more large figures that have friction joints, I’m becoming a lot less confident in the elbows for omega prime holding the sword.

    If Primus struggles with holding Galvatron and even Scourge I don’t see a two foot tall sword faring well.

    Good Smile Company just released the last bot needed for Great Might Gaine: Perfect Mode and the friction elbows do in fact have issues holding up the big ass Obari styled swords. I'd be shocked if Omega didn't have issues doing anything other than the static "flag pole into the ground" pose as that sword is massive even by Brave standards.

    Yeah it’s one of the few things that I’m genuinely disappointed Evan didn’t think about. Like sure normal Optimus will be nice with friction joints, but ratchets were desperately needed for the other modes. :(
