    No problem with the anime face at all, to be honest. Just feel that the body looks 'off', but hopefully new pictures will off-set that.

    The OG toy was one of my favourites at the time. I picked up the LioConvoy VS Galvatron 2-Pack from Digital Toys in '98 - my first ever Japanese import.

    Huh... this is the 1st time i'm honestly not liking a MP figure... The kibble on the arms, the extremely simplistic design with large smooth panels making up the legs (meaning minimal parts count for a larger price tag).... It just doesn't look like a masterpiece.... I'm actually kinda sad that they've actually made a MP I have little to no shred of interest for.:(

    They--you mean designers who merely expressed their desires but they have no control over what gets to released.

    Splitting hairs. If you think Takara aren't aware of the content of every interview with their designers etc. then you're going to be mistaken.

    The robot mode is downright fantastic; The beast mode is a bit of a letdown. Still, for that price, it's a definite pass for me.

    TT is aware of Japanese readers have common senses knowing designers wishes are not commitments.

    Can't lie, I do have a somewhat morbid fascination of how this thead is going to look...after the price is announced.

    I don't think the price is going to be that crazy - well, as in, it's not going to be way beyond what other current releases are.

    Well, I'm not one of them. Robo-boobies, robo-balls... anything that toes the line of absurdity and controversy, I want it.

    People hate it, others love it, people critique it, others defend it to their last breathe, the usual MP thread.

    I'm pretty sure the "they' of which you speak are the design team or a representative there of, who are in no position to make promises, and that they never said they intended to complete the Autobot Line-up (whatever that means) just that they would like to....they've aid much the same about the Beast Wars 'Main Cast' (again, whatever that means) .So I'm afraid I am not the one who has it twisted unless you can provide evidence of this promise TT made you.

    Even if they did make such a commitment, they a) made that commitment to the Japanese market(not you I assume?) and b) have every right to go back on it as it was non binding. Still if it you want to get in a huff about it go right ahead.

    Everything about this comment is glorious. talking about a character with Za Warudo ability, while having an Optimus Primal Avatar, who in Japan was voiced by the same Voice Actor as Dio.
    can we get an image of Primal using stand power?

    Big Convoy when? :p 
    Then we\'d have the full Beast Convoy trio. (Though likely using the toy colours Primal)

    There's no 'huff' - the only aggression here is from yourself. And not sure what this even means: "a) made that commitment to the Japanese market(not you I assume?)" or it's relevancy.

    And it's also baffling that you feel the need to pounce on someone for expressing their frustration in a way that wasn't attacking anyone.

    Be strong, Keyboard Samurai!

    The meaning of a) is rather by the by, all I meant was any commitment made(of which there was none) wasn't made to the import market, it was made to the Japanese market. To be honest it's tenuous so please feel free to ignore it.

    I'm not pouncing (although guess its apt for this thread) or being aggressive, I thought my original post was quite sympathetic to your frustration actually..but maybe it was lost in translation? The only agression Ive detected over the last couple of pages is form yoursle

    Regardless of their statement. You can't just say you weren't trying to attack anyone, then add an insulting statement right after

    True, true. But that's like saying if someone slaps you in the face, you can't be irked AND respond. They're not mutually exclusive.

    Not that we're at the joyful stages of slapping. Anyhow, LioConvoy stuff...
