    This sucks. The best repaint Takara did for ES gets cancelled. And all that Americans and other countries can get is a Cyberverse Prowl repaint.

    Weird. IDK maybe it might just suddenly pop up someday like the Jazwares Metal Sonic and Amy plushes but that\'s hopeful thinking

    It's also great they re-did the Energon Combiner thing; and some of the Warriors were good, but overpriced.

    The weirdest part of this cancelation is JTprime telling us a bit ago that there’s a new wave of deluxes happening.

    I would love to see a proper toy line again. Like it’s frustrating seeing characters that I actually like and yet have no good figures to collect.

    Here's hoping we at least get a Cosmos toy and some better Soundwave, Shockwave, and Arcee toys.

    Then again, even if the line/series is cancelled they'll still have toys made to accompany what they've got even if it doesn't continue past this year.

    True, but then why cancel this prowl if the intention is to continue releasing toys?

    What do most Transformers fans want in a Transformers show? This video said it best:



    "A good Transformers cartoon? Something decently written with a well-paced plot and an interesting cast of characters, released on a non-exclusive platform . . ."

    Well it's Takara cancelling this figure, while the listings we've gotten for future waves are all Hasbro.

    Yeah, but after brand unification a new wave under Hasbro means Takara also gets that wave. So if Hasbro makes new figures Takara will end up also releasing them.

    There is no correlation between the existence of Earthspark toys and the lack of a TFA Omega Supreme toy.

    Not with Earthspark. All of Takara's figures have had unique decos compared to their Hasbro counterparts, and I don't believe that they were released in the same wave format.

    Wait really? Huh, that’s surprising. Wonder why they changed it up for Earthspark of all things.

    Yeah, that's why people are mourning the loss of an Earthspark Prowl that's not a Hot Rod redeco. All of Takara's other Earthspark stuff has also had different decos, with the higher end stuff being a bit less of a noticeable change compared to stuff like the 1-steps for the most part.
