    I think the Ark by definition is a playset? Don't quote me on that.

    Also blue dot Grimlock from Dinobot, I thought it was obvious.

    "Obscure fembot..."

    They made figures for Lancer and Greenlight. Hell, that entire combiner team was one mold used on four different obscure fembots. They can do Botanica. It'll be okay.

    If anything now would be the *best* time for Botancia because we've established parts-forming as an acceptable feature and a plant-former could lend itself to some really interesting Weaponizer components.

    right right. the base modes of the previous titans were "playsets". for some reason, I cant see the ark turning into a robot (even though it's on the promotional art). I see a huge
    4 footx4 foot set made of soap bottle plastic

    call it blissful ignorance or whatever. But I really enjoy the effort Hasbro and Takara are putting up in the last two collector lines.

    I'm just grateful for help budgeting a few months in advance.

    Those two packs let me know to pick up Amazon giftcards and throw $100 on my balance or to set some money aside.

    I've been trying to pre-budget my 2021 and some of this definitely wouldn't have been on my radar without our friendly leaker, who I'm grateful for.

    You don't have the authority to tell any of us what to do, or the authority to make your own rules and enforce them. You need to stop telling us what to do.
    Very hypocritical, considering the Geewunners here do it all the time and they're protected.
    Because a fractional minority of fans screeched to the top of their lungs for a long time, and Warden only wanted G1, despite his claims.
    Again, you have no authority here. You're making up your own rules and pretending you have any right to enforce them. "Geewunner" isn't against the rules, no matter how much you dislike it. We use it because it's accurate. We say it in a derogatory way because it's meant to be derogatory because they take shots at the rest of us all the time and that's treated as perfectly acceptable. All you've done so far is prove you are the one of the group you're trying to protect, especially since I see no attempt from you to tell the G1 crowd to stop bashing non-G1 continuities.
    That's a hypocritical statement, as the G1 crowd has been doing the same thing, and I haven't seen you call them on it.
    Because it's not physically possible. The closest we get is MP, and that's gone down the toilet because of it.
    I assume you can just yell at them on social media?

    Eager to see the Allicon, BTW. You also renewed my interest in that.

    The real problem with something that niche at such a high price point is how many to make. Too many and HasTak loses money and might not ever consider doing it again. Too little and scalpers will make their presence known, and it'll be ridiculously expensive for those who actually want it, especially if they miss the release window. I have missed both the Siege Skywarp and ER SW+TC exclusives and die a little inside every time I think about it, god I hate after market prices.

    Has the titan class been more profitable with the last two releases? I never once saw Omega or Scorponok go on deep discount like all the other Titans have in the past.

    :p 

    It's cool, sorry for not being clearer! "Schadenfreude" is a German word which means to derive pleasure from the misfortune of others. I see that kind of thing from time to time here, but it's been particularly spicy in this thread!

    Any background info on why Maverick is the way he is, a seemingly new mold compared to retools being used for crossovers before and after him as well as him being super similar to the cyberjets and g1 toy Jetfire? Also you are doing the lords work here in this thread.

    @RodimusSupreme Honest question:
    What is the definition of Geewunner?
    I'd really like to know.

    Good grief, adults arguing and name calling, in a thread where someone was generous enough to share inside info with everyone and who has repeatedly asked people not to argue.

    At the end of the day we all like the same thing: Transformers. Be it G1, G2, Beast Wars, Bayverse or some other iteration, it all serves to keep the brand alive and new figures coming out way. Variety is the spice of life people.
