    Not that I would have bought a g1 greatshot, but I guess if I wanted one now I won't have to pay ~&500 for one.

    I would have bought this 18 months ago but after Nemisis (literally can't remember the official name for the black/grey one) and Continuum I'm a bit burnt out on this mould and done.

    You hear that MMC? Wait years and some of your market will have moved on.

    As for the Shadowmanu guy it looks like he turns into a real car so there would have to be some major retooling of this mold to get him to turn into a car and the jet is different also

    That was just a heavy dose of "anime magic". The original toy was just a retooled Sixshot, so that looked just as much like a car as he did.

    Sadly, there was no official toy for the red Scorponok that appeared in a Brave series (was it Might Gaine?).

    There are also Brave versions of Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Galaxy Shuttle.

    Are we leaving anything out?

    Yes!

    Greatshot is overdue from MMC. They were showing the Hexatron mold back in 2011 I believe and they had a Greatshot deco. But Sixshot was the more popular character.
    At least two of these Greatshots are on my to buy list. They will look great with Oversized Deathsarus , MP Star Saber etc.

    I wouldn't worry too much of them being side track by other Hexatrons as they are only slight mods to the molds (shoulders, breast plate, head sculpt, new weapons).
    This is probably a no brainer and a win win to fund other projects and stock fans like myself shelves.

    Very pleased.

    "Made to Order" usually means that they're only producing enough figures to cover orders.

    Example: 102 figured ordered = 102 figures made... ?
