    Also the fact that Micromasters sucked. They had, like, 3 base toys and hella repaints. Minicons were a lot more experimental and unique in their designs, so you won't have any case of "oh you alreadynhave that toy why do you need another?" outside of actual repaints like the dark star saber
    Why would it be SS86 when WFC/Legacy is right there for a G1 guy?
    Hasbro isn't dragging their feet on it, it isn't even Hasbro's project. That's all Takara.

    PMOP fit right in with the evolution gimmick of leaders, what do you mean?

    Gimmick small robot turn into big robot with power armor, it's essentially what potp leaders were, and more apt than Orion into Optimus, terrible matrix gimmick be damned.

    Hell, Orion's skeleton was basically that of Ginrai himself, even more evident with the Star Convoy release

    @wreckgar39

    I know you won’t say which voyager we have to buy just yet to have the SS line expand into tie-in stuff but will you at least point out which one it is after it is officially revealed by hasbro?

    I don’t collect live action figures but will help out those who do by buying it so the live action fans get more of their favorites.

    Evening @wreckgar39, after he was cancelled from Kingdom is there any chance we’ll still see Gears?

    Are you referring to Star Convoy? That was a Takara gen selects figure so it is technically not part of any specific line.

    The exact wording as I recall was that Galvatron literally could not be engineered to be within the budget of a toy of voyager class size, because the design simply wasn't meant to actually transform due to the complete lack of kibble. It can be done if that overpriced 3rd Party one is any indication (which I can't say anything nice about because I'm biased and I think AoE Galvatron in general is the single worst Transformer design in the entire franchise, and that includes The Beast), but 3rd Party figures don't generally have to adhere to the same standards as mass produced retail figures that Hasbro is subject to.

    Plus, we still don't even have The Fallen, and I actually give a shit about that guy more than literally any of the terrible characters in the last two films. Namely because of how ironic it is that in his own movie line, which was during what could be called a golden age of toy engineering, his own figure is fucking terrible!

    Except Takara really doesn't do Transformers releases independently of Hasbro anymore. We don't get things like Henkei/Gentei where the Takara versions are different from the contemporary Hasbro releases. Hell, stuff like Super Megatron? That's why we have Hasbro Pulse.

    Talking about the gimmick. Absolutely no idea why I would be talking about Star Convoy specifically.

    POTP would have been perfect for Powermaster Optimus. Just change the colours and molding of the trailer, have Orion be molded as Optimus like Takara did and BOOM, Powermaster Prime.

    It's still a Takara project, Hasbro just distributes it for stateside release. They have no hand in the figures themselves. There were also talks of that Armada Prime possibly going as far as being the basis of a Masterpiece, which could see release next year as a 20th anniversary like the original MP and MP Primal. Was Lio Convoy released on the BWII 20th?

    Oh, right, Armada Prime actually won the fan poll for an MP no less.

    Oh ok. I always thought of the PotP Evolution Leaders as the new versions of the power masters. They pretty much were in every way but name, like how the prime figures were mini pretenders.
