    This is as good as pressuring TakaraTomy to come out a MP Devastator.

    That'd have to announce that soon. After what people (myself included) are or will be spending on Giant and Herc I can't see many going in for an official release. I wouldn't be after spending $400 on one already.

    I am banking on this HELL YEAH. Bot modes certainly hit bulls eye with a tinge of G1 reminiscences

    I've edited my review... They're actually really tight. You just have to make sure to plug them in correctly.

    There will be a lot of collectors spending on Giant and Herc but TakaraTomy is sure taking their own sweet time,seems like they got all the time
    in the world.

    I'd highly doubt an official release would ever make it now. Plenty of other combiners can get attention tho.....

    Well, I think it is still possible. Look at what they did with iGear's Seeker design. Sure iGear took Has/Tak's existing mold and made a great improvement on it. But then Tak came back with MP-11 (and MP-11S). So....with that being said, I think if they care to make any more money off of us, a combiner made by them could be in the future. How far or near? That I wouldn't want to guess on.

    That is, unless HasTak officially says they're not going to do any G1 Combiners.....

    The difference is that HasTak, has that existing mold available to them (MP-11/11S). The combiners are going to be designed from scratch.

    Yes please, if possible. I'm trying to decide if I can live without and your direct comparisons are a great tool. I am really glad the yellow one is first so I can seethe thing completed before jumping in.

    Nooooooooooooo problem.

    I'm glad the Green Giant is coming in a set... I really can' stand looking at these without legs.

    I had no idea of a new head shipping though. Wondering if it's completely different looking, or what?
