    Yeah.
    But, one thing I really want to see is BandaiNamco, TakaraTomy, Toei Company, and Hasbro all work together to create a special line of Transformers X Super Sentai toys. I say that this collaboration should start with BandaiNamco, TakaraTomy, and Hasbro working on the GoBots together. Since Hasbro owns the rights to the characters due to the purchase of Tonka but they don't own the molds, Hasbro working with BandaiNamco would be a good start. It's relatively low risk and relatively high reward. Transformers X Super Sentai is much higher risk. So, Transformers X GoBots would be a better start. Then, if Transformers X GoBots succeeds, then Transformers X Gundam could be a great next step. Imagine Transfomers-based Gundams and Gundam-Based Transformers. Medium risk and Semi-High Reward. Then, Hasbro and TakaraTomy could work with BandaiNamco and Toei to at least design Kamen Rider-based Transformers. As soon as they see how Transformers could work with Tokusatsu, Transformers X Super Sentai could be the final step. It's best to start with lower risk decisions.
    Harmony Gold, Studio Nue, and Big West Frontier are the three owners of the rights to Macross.

    Leaker Phamduc said that the Netflix figure is not Packrat and is an actual repaint of Rattrap. The only difference with the Netflix Rattrap is dark color fur, dark silver - no extra accessories, no extra paint apps.

    1. You wouldn't need all those companies to do that. Super Sentai is what Power Rangers is in Japan, Hasbro already has that so that could do that all on their own.

    2. HELL NO!!! I know some of the Megazords kind of already look like Transformers already and there's Transformers that have been compared to Megazords (Energon Optimus Prime) but I don't want Power Ranger anywhere freaking near Transformers.

    I'm going to be honest with you here. Donald was the host of the system before me, he was into Power Rangers... more than into it... he completely lost touch with reality and thought he was a Power Ranger. Oddly enough there kids in my school who vaguely resembled some of the characters in the show. A girl who looks like Scorpina in her human form, even having the same name, two bullies who looked like Bulk and Skull who did something to him I have no memory of but he can still have flash backs to so trauma involving them. Around 6th grade I split off, almost the same as him except freaking hating that show. As far as I knew at the time I had snapped to my senses and wanted to be as far away from that fantasy I was living in as possible. Years later after being diagnosed we realized that Donald was actually a separate identity who use to be host but went dormant because we were too old to continue blending in as a "normal" person with him as the host, we needed a new host, one who could cope in the real world and thus I was split off not knowing I was an alter. So yeah... I have a deep seeded hatred of Power Rangers so I really never want to see that crossover... EVER!!! I don't know what the actual trauma was that triggered this but even if I did, if you're not my therapist it's non of your buisness... All I know is I hate this show with a passion.

    It isn't, for whatever that's worth. Bandai has Gundam and every toy and hobby store I've been in over in Japan has a massive (sometimes wall-to-wall or multi-floor) Gundam section, to the point where other lines like of big ole robots like Transformers, Shinkalion, Super Sentai, etc. were relegated to much smaller areas of some of the stores.

    The rumors which started with the 1st mention of purple paleotrex all say him + siege Megatron + accessory (heavily implied to be Allspark able to attach to a modified chest on Megatron. )

    $20 rex + $30 Megatron =$50, plus a "free" accessory

    I’m really hoping that Megatron’s gimmick is well done and a key moment in the Netflix series. Would make it much easier to sell off since I only want Crystalux. :)

    I had zero interest in normal Paleotrex. But clear purple Paleotrex? I need 2.

    Bandai is by far the largest toy company in Japan. Gundam is the biggest property in Japan...by a large margin. Bandai America is run as a completely separate company than Bandai proper.

    1. Hasbro, at one point, was almost losing the rights to make Power Rangers. Also, the major collaboration is between BandaiNamco and TakaraTomy. Hasbro is sort of the middleman. Considering that Hasbro owns Power Rangers, it makes it more likely for a Transformers X Super Sentai.
    2. Imagine Mecha based upon the actual Transformers in their alternate modes.
    3. Super Sentai is to Power Rangers as an original Anime is to the Dub. So, essentially, I am not talking about Power Rangers, I am talking about Super Sentai. They may have the same costumes, similar Transformation Devices, and the use of Mecha/Zords, but they aren't the same. In fact, a lot of the Super Sentai-exclusive Mecha that were exclusive to the toyline or to Super Sentai-Exclusive Movies weren't released in the West.

    I see that you don't exactly have a good relationship with Power Rangers, but Super Sentai is different, but the same. Can you see what I am talking about? Anyways, what about the previous points? Imagine Transformers based upon Gundam and Gundam based upon Transformers. Imagine Transformers X GoBots. And what about Kamen Rider? Remember Kamen Rider Dragon Knight and Saban's Masked Rider? They were the only 2 adaptations in the West of Kamen Rider. Meanwhile, Super Sentai is the more popular of the two because "oh, giant robots". Kamen Rider is essentially Super Sentai without the Giant Robot Battles.
    So, I wonder whether Super Sentai could somehow lessen the trauma and/or allow you to put it in the past. Anyways, if you see different characters besides the characters who the kids looked like, it could work better.

    Sorry if this seems disrespectful. Trust me, I have something that I absolutely HATE due to teasing in Elementary School. That is "Michael Finnegan". The constant teasing and taunting has caused me to HATE anyone who references that song. It PLAGUES me to this day. If I wasn't teased and taunted by that song. In fact, it has been hard to make friends due to that song. Sorry. for this sounding rant-like.

    BACK ON TOPIC:

    Purple paleotrex & Megatron IS the "spoiler box " , which much like the last 2 boxes the spoiler is the text written on the inside packaging, which is basically useless out of context of watching the Netflix show.

    Do we know if spoiler box 3 will have energon cubes + "play doh"?

    Bandai is scarily big , it completely dominates the Japanese market if I’m not wrong . Last I checked Takara is pretty far away from even being in the same league as Bandai . There’s a reason why there’s a walking 1:1 Gundam and all the Gundam related places there and not Transformers or Zoids ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    Bandai is massive. The even own some of the broadcast stations in the country. If you're watching TV over there, chances are it's one of their divisions. (Well, that was true last I checked 2-3 years ago, may have changed since.)

    This does remind me, I'm kind of surprised no one's posted the interior quote yet. Granted there's the possibility that these samples were stolen straight from the factory without the packaging, but I'd have figured we would've seen it by now. We haven't seen the Megatron this will be packaged with either yet, so maybe when one crops up, so will the other in short succession.

    Didn't realize they owned Gundam either but yeah that's a massively popular franchise.

    Ok first see above. Second. Bandai America is not a completely separate company that would violate international copy right laws considering they use the same name, the same logo, and for the most part sell the same products... with a few exceptions which is only because toy safety laws in America are completely different than toy safety standards in Japan. It's the same company just a different branch of that company. Any completely separate company using their name and likeness illegally would be sued in a heart beat.

    I appreciate the thought but I honestly can't stand anything even remotely related to that Franchise. Masked Rider was a spin off of Power Rangers with his origin actually being explained in a Power Rangers episode and some scenes from that episode were shown in the opening of the series as they quickly explain who he is.

    I don't have an issue with Go-Bots or Gundam cause those things have nothing to do with Power Ranger. And that's actually partly why I say keep the hell away from Transformers. If they start having crossovers... I might possibly end up selling off my entire collection of Transformers... Or trying to anyway... I still have some Power Rangers stuff I haven't been able to sell. I keep it in storage out of my sight and only get something out if I'm about to ship it off to someone. All the morphers and role play weapons Donald had have been sold off already. Most of the Zords are gone. All that's left after that is a few little figures that I'm not sure are even in good enough to condition to be worth anything. I think the pegs are broken on the Dragon Shield and White Ranger shields so they don't even stay on anymore. I don't even know where most of the accessories even are for those figures.

    Your fine just please don't push it any further. I mean I can't stop you from having your own opinion. If you want to continue to discuss that stuff with other people who actually share your interests, all I ask is not to quote me or tag me in those posts so I don't get notifications sent to me about it.

    I don't even know who that is or what song you're talking about...

    *Spongebob Narrator* One google search later...

    Oh my gawd that's annoying! Also that's far less of a rant then the one I did. I only listened to this song for a few seconds and I already hate it. It doesn't make any sense, it just repeats the same nonsense over and over again, WHY IS THIS A THING?!

    To be fair... is Zoids even still a thing anymore? I think that was around the same time as DinoZaurs and lasted just as long. But there are Transformers... like Japan has actually built some life sized Transformers that you can actually drive, and they aren't really practical in Robot mode, it's basically just for show, really freaking slow, but still cool that they even did that at all.

    Yep, Zoids has been an ongoing series for a while, not sure exactly how long.

    And my name is Michael. So they were constantly teasing me. UGGH
    And noticed that I added red text. Especially on "Hate" and "Plagues". Like the infamous Hate Plague.

    We had an alter named Michael but he's recently fused/integrated with another alter and now goes by Mike. I say recently but it was like a few months ago the new alter made himself known. Anyway that's not really the same though when most people aren't even aware we exist and even some people who are aware they always call us either by our birth name or by the system host's name and that's only because certain people don't even know our birth name. The only people who actually use our actual names right now are some friends in another system who also have DID.

    A. That response was in direct response to you ignorantly just throwing out that "Takara is the biggest toy company in Japan don't argue with me" and BEFORE you responded and quoted both of us. B. I didn't mean it was a completely different company like some yahoo was just willy nilly using the name outside of Bandai. I meant that it is run and controlled by completely different people than Bandai Japan. And I think you know that.
