    I'm guessing they're referring to UT/DX9 La Hire, who's technically a 3P product, not a KO. He's a brand new product, not a rehash/resize of anything that HasTak have done

    Either that or TF EVO Hot Fire, who, from what I've heard, is so poorly constructed that it might as well be a knock-off

    I really like this truck mode for Optimus Prime. I don't like it when Transformers figures have any robot kibble protruding from their vehicle modes and this truck mode for Optimus Prime really hits all the right notes for me. IMG_0329[245].JPG

    Studio Series Roadbuster, Topspin and Leadfoot.

    What do you think will happen?

    I ask because I remember when Roadbuster and Topspin were out. But when it came to Leadfoot being a Target exclusive it was cancelled.

    We'll definitely see them eventually. I know the idea was thrown around that they would be released as a 3 pack and that might be the case. Target would probably want Leadfoot to be an exclusive at least.

    I think the only reason Hasbro hasn't released them yet is they are trying to secure the rights to use all of the sponsorships again. All I know is, when we finally get a weaponized Roadbuster in scale with all the other DOTM bots I'll be a happy camper.

    I say worst case scenario all three are released blank. Best case is Leadfoot being an exclusive. I doubt a 3 pack will happen.

    I think this will be the case. The licensing rights to the teams and sponsors are way to complex at this stage, since many of the sponsors now sponsor other teams and drivers and wouldn't want their logos on the competition.

    It's not the size, it's how you use it twice and then forget it exists for the rest of the series.

    I seriously need to downsize my collection. I’m selling these, and honestly I just need them out like, now. DOTM Striker Prime is 100% authentic, not one of the KOs. Factory defect missing the blue arm paint, but it’s still good, will come with mechtech shield and gun and instructions. I know the missing paint is annoying but it’s the way it arrived years ago. Rendsora is in good condition and comes with the back filler pieces. Smoke-free home

    Please PM me with an offer if you want any of these, I’m less concerned about money and more so about clearing space.

    Honestly I just want proper representation of the characters, If that means they have to be without decals that’s fine. However I’d imagine, the wreckers would be sold individually with very limited to no decals with the exception of their numbers. There’s no way they can copyright a number and it’s font right? Leadfoot May have two separate releases (one being a target exclusive with target branding on him). The other sold at mass retail without said branding. I wouldn’t think national guard, amp, and Mountain Dew would be hard to acquire for roadbuster, especially the latter. Kids love Mountain Dew right?

    One big problem I believe is that some of these sponsors have since moved their products to other drivers. And associating them with their old drivers may be an issue.

    My biggest hope is that toyhax/reprolabels will finally get out of the Seige/G1 MP obsession they’re currently in and finally make some stuff for studio series. Cus the wreckers will without a doubt need them.

    LOL, I was not talking about new characters. But I would really like to see 80s Barricade and Skipjack. Saw a custom yellow Rampage and it was fantastic.
    And more Arcee triplets is deserved!

    That was cruel. But I do think we should get a DOTM Ironhide and also a DOTM Starscream, all done in dark grey plastic (he could come with two of the mini gatling gun Brawl has, each for one of his arms).



    I'm kind of emotional tonight, so...
    For years, the little Cyberverse figures I have were my best and most complete collection. But now...

    Guess who wants to be the next...

    Your Cyberverse figures just made me wonder something. What would be the scale of Unicron (aka Earth) in relation to Cyberverse/Legends figures? Well, since Optimus Prime is 28 feet, and the Earth's diameter is 41851443 feet, you would need to compare the ratio to the size of Legends Optimus, and you'd have your answer. 28/41851443= Legends OP Height/X

    Yeah the last wave (Soundwave, Que, Leadfoot) was canned in the US because Walmart’s didn’t want toys from last year’s movie when they could get toys from the new TV series (Transformers Prime).

    At least with Soundwave so far, this terrible wrong will at last be righted.

    Good question. Cyberverse Optimus' height is similar to the height of a ROTF Scout Class figure. I haven't him with me right now, but I may try to measure him when I return home.

    Now, part 2. The Autobots:

    Back in 2007, everything began with this little one. He fought bravely. Now, he can rest. His mission was well accomplished.

    The original 5 will always be my favourite, but these 5 look pretty sharp together. IMG_20190929_172734.jpg
