    Kinda figured as much....it's not Maketoys style to make a bunch of these limited edition figures.......just sucks that I missed out ....the SG tanker is the only one I do not have....

    When my friends and I spoke with the Maketoys rep at TFCon, we were told that both the SG G2 Prime and SG DIA Magnus styled colors were being released as core bots and core bots + trailers.
    Though, I guess we should take that with a grain of salt as we were also told we were getting some special surprises with Maketoys Metroplex that never came to fruition.

    I want to see their Gentoo core bot+trailer in "normal" Ultra Magnus colors.

    Hell, how about Rodimus Prime colors, too, with a new head?

    And if they do, they'll likely be tailored to the Gento bot and not come with the shoulder armor, chest riser, and separate head.

    they can use the same mold for nemesis, with directly the right head for the character...at the end they need only the chest armor.

    Did the Shattered Glass Optimus Battle Tanker come with this yellow Drift sword as well? Today is the first time I saw this weapon.(looking around in the Maketoys app)

    It did not. Maybe it's just an unreleased proto. Maybe there's a second run coming for their Duke figure?

    Would love to see a purple Battle Tanker set come out, especially if it can be up-armored and has a yellow version of the large sword. I don't have room for it in the display where I have Hyper Novae, Nemesis Prime, and Gento Battle Sentinel, but love will find a way. It would be great to see a fourth one to round out the set. It looks like they list it on their site, yellow sword and all, but I guess it was never released? Battle Sentinel SP SG

    Nnnnnnnnnecrothread!!

    I don't have this set. Wondering if OP can transform into vehicle mode even with all the armor-up parts attached? Any pics? Haven't had a chance to check this whole thread yet.
