    Boy did I learn my lesson. No more making jokes on TFW2005.

    You are far from the first person to want or suggest this.

    I don't quite get the desire for ankle tilt instead of the toe tilt. It would put the articulation point partway up his leg, making it look broken when posed.

    I take that as a compliment. "Darkstone, unconditional lover of the toy" shall be engraved onto my tombstone. :rip 

    Reality in this forum is often a bit too insane for subtle jokes. They kinda invented blue text for that reason, although I often fail to use it as well ;)

    Pretty sure that is why his joke is a joke.

    I wish we had more insight into who drew what art for which series. If I am getting MP48 I may actually try to print out one of his of his art pieces (there are some awesome laserdisc covers by him) to display along with it.

    This has been suggested so many times that you would have to really exaggerate it to make it sound like a joke.

    Oh...I really hate to be *that guy*, but I see this error on TV ALL the time. The price has not increased exponentially. If it had, we’d be paying literally millions or hundreds of millions of yen for these figures. The prices have just increased linearly. Again, sorry!


    This was like reading a G1 MP thread. I feel for you Booster, being on the other side of the fence this time.

    Of course you can think it looks bad, I certainly didn't say you couldn't, but you shouldn't say it's not accurate when it is, I'm just saying if it's on the character model, it's obviously supposed to be there.

    Interestingly enough, I did think of this. However, it also occurred to me that one could very easily visit the other forum rather easily if one were so inclined to. Another benefit would be that people who are of one opinion or the other who are in the minority would be far less pressured to keep their opinions to themselves. Of course, the downside is that it would become a logistical nightmare. The other downside is that the forums would become rather boring with both of them becoming echo chambers very quickly. So, pros and cons.

    Really, it’s ok to admit that you didn’t get the joke ;) 

    Oh crap, there I go again making another joke that no one here will get. I really need to stop.

    Well yes...and no. It's not mathematically increased exponentially, but I was using it to illustrate that prices have grow more rapidly over time...and they have. I take your point but it is an acceptable use of the word ;)

    Wow, I never..EVER...thought I needed LioConvoy to do this, but now I do.

    This really toon style really clashes with the other CGI BW MPs, but oh well. As usual...C'MON AMAZON JP with the preorder!

    Really didn't expect this. Wow.

    Wonder what the chances are we'll head into the truly crazy stuff and get that wonderful Galvatron Drill/Dragon thingamadobber? That'd be wonderfully silly.

    Exactly, he's a lion so his feet are high up his leg, it would look something like this. Dunno I think they made the right choice

    Echo chambers are the cancer of the internet IMHO. But that's just me.

    Btw, I can't hide the fact that I'm a bit disappointed to not get another season 1 character, but the bot mode is awesome and I know I'll end up ordering one.

    I feel like Super Genrai and Big Convoy are all but confirmed now. When can we expect potentially more info for Lio? Accessories etc.

    It'll come. We got twice as many new moulds this year as the last 3, what's to say it wont double again? ;) 
    Even if I don't get MP-48 I like to look at this as a good thing, it shows TT are REALLY into Beast Wars right now.

    I so want more BWMPs before another G1 MP now. Unless it's Mirage or Jazz (Trailbreaker is too easy to get the license for) I just don't want an '84 guy. Meanwhile, some of the Japanese Beast Wars characters as MPs would be really cool because of how the toys are compared to the animation.

    BTW if I were to hunt down a Lio Convoy, should it be OG or the Universe Leobreaker redeco?
