    If it's as good as that one looked or better I doubt anyone would complain. You know, besides the ones complaining that something other than G1 is being represented but nobody really cares about their opinion on the matter.

    Just grabbing one of these from the conversation, but Hasbro has two basic options with JG1. In the first, they hew to JG1 scale more or less, but that means we're only getting 1-3 a year because so many of them would "live" in the leader+ class (as you state here and elsewhere). The other option would be to, essentially, renormalize scale for JG1. Pick a size for PMOP (either leader or commander*), then scale everything against that within some vague reason to match the distribution of figures per price point

    *I'm not suggesting a preference, just saying we've had figures with trailers in both price points

    That's the thing though, I suspect a lot of fans have hyped up that gray proto to an unreachable standard.

    When @wreckgar39 said a decisive figure was coming up, I immediately thought of Polar Claw, for context:
    • BW toy only character that can't be a repaint with a new head from a BW show character, and we know he was at least considered at some point for Kingdom:

    However we know wreckgar isn't really a BW fan, so the figure might be something more up to their alley. I can think of a couple other options:
    • Movieverse toy/game/concept art only character: Someone like Breakaway or Longarm fits these three categories, or another specific game/concept art character with a cool design

    • Unicron Trilogy design: The myth, the man, the legend, the Armada Prime mold as a Commander. Or something like Tidal Wave.

    • G1 Japan character: It could be Deathsaurus as the first Decepticon commander, or Star Saber, or even Minerva with a planned Nightbeat retool.

    If we look to the third party market 84-86 get done over and over again, but it looks like anything from 87 onwards tends to end up being reduced in a sale not long after.

    Dude you're way over analyzing this.

    Imagine thinking something from Beast Machines is important enough to hype two years before it's release.

    Go back to hating core Rattrap or whatever seetheing you do over the Beast Wars toys you've been demanding for years.

    I’m only interested in what appeared in the cartoon, with an emphasis on S1 & S2.
    If that bothers anyone then that’s their problem, not mine.

    Got it. Thanks.

    I'm the same way with a few exceptions. Don't know why that would piss people off....I mean I was out of TFs during the UT and going back and watching it did nothing to endear it to me. But that is just me. There are many here that hate G1.. that is their right. I grew up with G1 so it's my main focus.


    Well that and BW...LOVE BW!!!

    I was under the impression there would be, and I was honestly expecting at least the main cast to show up

    The good side of leaks : we’re spoiled. We already know what’s coming in the upcoming waves. It’s great to plan your budget according to what interest you and we also have a good idea what’s coming in the upcoming year.

    The bad side : Aside from having no/few surprises (if you want to read leaks). WHEN CAN WE GET THE PICS OF X CHARACTERS ALREADY ? WHAT ABOUT 2023-2025 ? AND WHERE’S MY DRINK ?
