    In my eyes, the accessories (unless major) don't mean much for the price unless the figure itself is worth the total price. All this has told me is this will boost the price, making me judge the figure itself harsher for the price.

    Before we start talking MP Moon, can he get a Generations toy first?

    Oh, and Takara, since you're making Artemis, when can we get a SARA figure?
    And T-AI as well?

    Damn you Takara! I utterly hate the flat panel monstrosity you made, but since I just got Moon... I really want an Artimes toy to go with him. They even got her ban-hammer accessory!
    I do wonder how large she is, though. She does seem to have knee joints.
    Ah well, will grab one when the KO comes out. Or the regular - I bet many people will sell her not really knowing who she is.

    That's the cool thing about this reveal to me. No interest in this Convoy design, but I love the Big Convoy design, for some reason I don't even understand. Never saw the show or anything, but that's just a cool cool design. And this reveal seems to indicate we could very well get an MP Big Convoy. And I would Flip. The. F. Out.

    As someone who hates anime this is only making it harder to want to pay for this. However it does make me appreciate the actual MP figure more, since this thing takes such a far dive off the deep end into anime that it makes convoy look almost western lol

    As someone who has never seen Beast Wars and has just started to watch Beast Wars 2, I'm really excited for this. And Artemis will be included with her hammer,yes! If this is one of the accesories I wonder what else will they include? Maybe effects for his missiles and jets. One can only dream. But I do hope they do make a masterpiece figure of moon, even with kibble.

    Conversely, the recent reissue of Big Convoy in anime colors would already fit in perfectly with toy-colors Primal and Lioconvoy.

    I’m also not sure what a MP would improve upon over the original toy.

    I'd love to dig into the Transformers continuity as the Japanese see it.
    From what I understand, to the Japanese, there is no separate continuities. No such thing as this show doesn't go with this show. To the Japanese, there is one continuity, one continuous story. It never stopped and rebooted, it just kept going. That's all of it, not just G1. All of it. Fascinating.

    Yeah? I didn't know why that re-issue cost so much for such an old toy, and I do not know how it scales, I had thought a MP Big Convoy would be MP-10 size. I assumed the articulation is sub-par for my needs. So many things kept me from getting that, and hoping for an MP. Y'know what? I'm gonna go research that 1999 toy a little bit.

    We made a joke about Moon and Artemis being accessories on Moonbase 2 last week

    I want this toy more than I wanted Dinobot. And I reaaaaally want Dinobot.

    Japan ran on pretty strict 20+ eps minimums at the time so BW S2 and 3 wee too short for them. So they held off airing them until s3 was done and merged them into one season called Metals.
    BW II and Neo take place in the future/current Cybertron the Axalon and Darksyde come from. Gaia is future Earth and so forth. So they were complete free of right continuity. Only major kink was when Primal is brought forward in time in the movie.

    So how tall is Lio in fiction? 3 meters? 5 meters? If Artemis is about 5 feet tall she's either going to be sizable (if LC is 3 meters) or small (if 5 meters).

    The Japanese wiki gives a height of 3 meters for him.

    I was looking for some size comparisons of Artemis and Moon on tfwiki to gage a relative size for her figure, if she is to scale, but only found this shot of her from Beast Wars Neo
    30C9C383-1C1D-43E5-B132-16EAD59F5546.jpeg

    She’s not that much smaller than some of the Beastformers but it’s not the best angle to guess a height especially with the characters in sitting positions.

    Of course since it's a female character, it's gotta have its knees and toes pointed inward and one hand out to the side...
