Did Star Saber not open that door? Not being a smartass, just not exactly sure what you're saying.
What a pleasant surprise.
That's so cool!
I appreciate you're making it look like you're trying to be "middle ground," but the fact is you explicitly said Takara should be focusing on the G1 that matters to you. Which makes you part of the problem, believe it or not.
Okay I like it.
Not surprised. I had been wondering how long it would take TakaraTomy to get to Lio Convoy
i love my Lio Convoy. As long as it isn't $300, I'll bite.
That’s not entirely true. MP-3 had changes after being displayed, and most recently Hound had a shoulder revision after his initial display. We’ve also seen variations in colors and paint apps on display prototypes.
However, it’s unlikely that Lio Convoy will have fur paint apps applied since he’s emulating an anime appearance like MP-38 (which used flat colors and no fur detailing).
So who do you think we will get a Mp of first? Bw Galvatron or Megastorm.
I know there is a large group that would love Megastorm to use as G2 Megatron
I don't think it makes anyone part of the problem. It's a needlessly aggressive stance to take towards people who just want a complete collection and have spent a ton of money thus far.
I am more than happy for all lines to be covered, and for everyone to be happy - it's just that with the way they're doing it, none of these lines will ever feature a complete cast.
I have all the G1 and have all the BW MPs so far. Not one single complete set among the four factions. I just want Takara to finish something! There's what - 4 cars remaining for the Diaclones and 4 for the minis to complete the entire Autbot G1 cast. Let's get them out of the way and then devote those slots to more BW, or Armada, or anything, really. Just finish something.
That said, I'll possibly be passing on this. Not because I don't want a LioConvoy, but because I don't think this looks that great. The arms on the back seem a wee bit too huge, and the lion mode is a hot mess that seemed to look better on the original toy (which I kinda love, having three versions of it). Hopefully future pictures will change my mind.
I could get them all, and make them the pride of my collection
Holy bananas that’s a ridiculously goofy look on that lion face.
I STILL want a MP G2 Megatron, and since FH has put theirs on the back burner, a TakTom one would work just fine for me even though I'm out of the game right now.
This hits my mindset exactly. This figure, while a nice looking figure, makes five sub-lines now in MP. Nothing complete.
And it's nice to see how simply expressing an opinion, about toys, makes one aggressive and a problem. TFW for the win!
Can I just get an MP Big Convoy? I’ll pay $350!
Maybe I should just buy the original toy again, lol.
I'd sell my soul for an MP style G2 Megatron (I know that's Megastorm, but still), official or otherwise. Doubly so if it comes with a swappable Derek Yaniger style head and Bludgeon's skull.
Takara never finishes anything. That's why I buy 3rd party to complete sets. If they completed stuff people might stop their collection with that set. So they make several figures to get people invested, then change the look of the line or abandon it. We never got everyone in the PVC line,they abandoned it, they only did 3 lines of wst then abandoned it. Same for Alternators. They do just enough to get you invested then move on to the next line. I have so many lines missing figures here or figures there. Thanks to 3rd party I have a pretty good g1 set that has/Tak is no where near coming close to releasing figures of. Instead we are getting repaints of figures we already bought to make them look more like the cartoon version or a character we already have with a different look. Then it will be another 10 years till we see cliffjumper or hoist from them and in the meantime they will have released MP Prime versions 4 and 5.
Being a completionist is just asking for a headache. You’re forced to buy figures you may not really appreciate because you need a representation of that character on your shelf. It’s easier on your mind and your wallet if you just buy what you like, when it comes out. Don’t stress over it.
Bot mode: "Oh my god, yes!"
Beast mode: "Oh, god..."
It doesn't look MP-ish to me but by all means keep BW in the MP line so it doesn't interrupt or get shoe horned in the G1 WFC trilogy during the next 2 years.
