    The show never said he wasn't a former Decepticon yet though so there might be a chance that he was a Decepticon at some point but later changed his ways and became an Autobot bounty hunter which is why I think that's what the Origin Drift toy is.

    Speaking of all that unpleasant bounty business, is there a reason
    Optimus isn't using Drift's ship to go clear things up with the Council about Bumblebee? And Grimlock, for that matter. I imagine there are many, many falsely accused individuals aboard the Alchemor that Optimus could use his legendary influence to help pardon...

    And that would be unjust flaunting of his status as Prime, which Optimus doesn't want to do. Then there's the question if the Council will even believe him, considering resurrection isn't that common in Aligned...

    IF the new Rumble and Frenzy are United Scout rereleases, that would be the best thing ever happened.
    Besides, they don't have a surface large enough to put the sticker on (as was the case of TF: Adventure Override/Groove), so they'll be unharmed.

    I'll probably pre-order Frumble if they're what I think they are.

    Here's hoping that Supreme Optimus is a sweet redeco of the Takara exclusive Optimus mold.

    Both are the same price on BBTS so I'm guessing it is a repaint in Clash colors(which would look awesome IMO).

    Also the good thing about Battle Grimlock is that it's part of the TAV subline instead of TED. Chomp and stomp/3 step changers would be under the TED subline. So I think Battle Grimlock is a giant fully articulated Grimlock.

    Hope Battle Jazz has a visor.

    Robotkingdom has uploaded some photos of the new TAV items, I think more are to be posted before the night ends:

    Week 28, 6th July 2015 - Just Listed Items

    Battle Grimlock looks like a heavily retooled FOC Grimlock with new heads, upper arms, lower legs and tail. Rumble/Frenzy are the United/RTS scout molds. Sky Shadow is a repaint of the Generations release with more opaque translucent yellow plastic.

    That's the Grimlock I waited for, thanks Takara! I know the mold isn't the best but damn they put in a lot of effort with the retooling. Dino mode looks spot on and robot mode works too. 2500 ¥ is a good price too, seems like the price we expected was wrong or they do make the Stomp & Chomp toy later on and just switched the prices up by accident.

    Also: United Frenzy and Rumble? Awesome!

    Does Jazz have the visor? I don't know why but that is the one thing that would swing me around on that figure.

    huh, a retooled FOC Grimlock? Interesting

    White Drift looks neat but I think I prefer the original Takara version this time around

    So Grimmy is gonna have a huge gap on his dino tummy.


    *sigh*


    The remolding looks great, don't get me wrong, but unless they've fixed that one glaring issue, I'm no longer interested.

    OH YEAH! United Rumble/Frenzy rerelease! So I can finaly get those two without paying over $90!

    Y'know what's the best part? They won't have those stupid 'Adventure stickers' on them because there is no place large enough on that mold to accomodate them! WIN!
