    Props: Thanks for the Unicron Neo find. Much better than 25th Anniversary! :)

    That Wheelie proto is actually pretty decent for the time.

    Beast Wars Neo probably wasn't popular enough to produce an Optimal Optimus sized villain.

    Plus his cancellation probably helped produce the Armada figure, which (in my opinion) is a much better toy than the Neo Unicron looks. Not that it wouldn't be cool if they released him back in 1999, but we got a better one just a few years later. :)

    Blargh! Why must you tease us Takara? Why?!?!?!?!

    As soon as we get decent pictures I will know whether or not to pore-order the damn toy.

    Oh well, more waiting *sigh* :/

    Huffer. Oh dear. Lower priced Masterpiece like with Alternity: "binaltech mini"

    He looks great. Definitely. And would help Takara compete with soul of chogokin if they wanted to make entry level masterpieces more frequently.

    I am very fascinated to know what magiclly chnaged between then and now. Was there one day Hasbro and Takara designers woke up and said..." I KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THE SHOW!!!" I mean Overlord...so awsome...why were elbows so hard?

    Oh, that gosh darn Wheelie. Getting a good G1 figure only for it not to of been released. He'll never cease to find some way to urk people. That G1 prototype Unicron kind of freaks me out in the shapes.

    I have seen that g1 Unicron in person before. I am a bit rusty but maybe it was Botcon 1996? I remember it being in a corner off to the right of the show in a case with other prototypes. Anyone remember that?

    Call me stupid and envious, but why do people get news credit for posting links to pictures mirror on another site, the very same pictures that were shown in a book that has been available for more than a month now? I received the book in my mailbox on August 11, should have started a few "news" threads like "OMG, according to this drawing maybe Takara is planning a MP Huffer, OMG".

    And I am not sure if the book's publisher is fine with posting those pics either. No TF Club scans, but hey... why not the Japanese books, who cares?

    Ya know, that Beast Wars one wasn't to bad for it's time. For a total shell-former anyhow. But then a again, many to most of the Beast Wars figs were shel-formers. I have never seen such clear pictures of it until now.

    Gah, MP10 Convoy does look very cool (tho hardly perfect), but I just can't justify it, as there's still really nothing fundamentally wrong with ol' MP1 Convoy. Ah well. Roll on MP Starscream 2.0 & MP Megatron 2.0 anyway... could still bite on one or both of those if they happen & are a bit jawdropping..

    The other unreleased prototype stuff from this book is great, interesting stuff..
