Any translation, please? Thank you!
Hope they add Fracas to Repugnus and announce that before the Hasbro version comes in stock.
The article just states that the LG line was thought to be over but will continue through TakaraTomy Mall starting with Greatshot/GrandMax while the POTP line will be brought over for mass market.
I can see that as a first release under this new line, as a two pack followed by Buster and Hydra.
Arcee can't be far away either. Maybe even stuff from the boxsets that they haven't done yet like Metalhawk or Nautica. A G2 Prime to rival the Megatron they're releasing this month.
Sounds promising to me. If we can get a release every other month or so that would be cool.
Sh*t, this means more expensive figures.
I hope that at least they go the extra mile with accesories and such.
Personally, I don't see that Metalhawk going over there. Most likely they would retool the Brainstorm mold for one, and skip that Arcee. Maybe use the Rodimus mold but retool for Arcee and maybe Minerva. Those would be my picks at least.
It'll be so few that it won't really add up to much.
Yeah, like nine more "expensive" figures a year. *eye roll*
This isn't a full figure line like POTP. This is going to be TTMail exclusives just under the "Legends" brand name for now on.
It wont cost slight more than what Potp Hasbro stuff is selling for where Im at in Asia. I can afford most TT Mall stuff, thankfully.
I didn't say it was.
Frankly, I'm expecting prices to be about normal for Takara's previous Legends releases which were pretty sensible for what they were.
I'd still be happy if they offer it, especially if they include his Pretender shell.
I agree, the prices won't change much. We will still pay more because we loose out on retailer discounts, but I expect the releases to be so scarce that it won't hurt our wallets too bad.
Also, so far I only really want Grotusque (and Repugnus), if they do something really cool I might bite but I don't expect to purchase multiple waves worth of figures here.
Anybody think that they might do a unite warriors Abominus using this method?
I hope so. Can't say I'm expecting it though.
We’ll know soon enough. Basically, if they get released individually, I wouldn’t expect them to get released as a set. What I would expect would be UW Dinoking or Liokaiser. Rarely do they do a “better” version of a retail figure via TTM.
Takara is just bringing Hasbro figures over as is. I'd be surprised if they went against what they've said and do any sort of UW boxsets.
Honestly, I don't have high hopes of TakaTom putting Terrorcons together & release them under the UW banner.
*Think PP Volcanicus*
Its TTMall..a seperate entity fom Hasbro. Look at LG EX Combiner releases track record and tell me if Unite Warriors Abominus is not a sure thing...
It isn't a sure thing. From the sounds of it TTMail isn't going to be doing boxsets or retreading Takara POTP releases. Why would they? A boxset, maybe since they did do a Metroplex re-issue but that didn't include any extra paint apps or anything as far as I know of. So it's a possible release, because of Plex, but probably without anything radically different done to it which would totally defeat the point in doing it.
What TTMail is doing is continuing Legends as an exclusive line, I expect that to mean more releases like Greatshot, Nightbird, etc (off the top of my head) then anything else. I'm sure they'll do a Buster and Hydra two pack, things of that nature.
