    That was one of my grand memories of the one that use to be next to Willow Grove Mall.

    True!

    Just like Bred 11's...

    Absolutely delusional. We were flat out shown Kingdom line's first semester was outselling by 20% the Earthrise line, and there is absolutely no way that a line would do that well based on the mere existence of the couple of G1 guys in Kingdom's first wave.

    Plus, you know, BW was a line that existed worldwide, while Japanese G1 guys like Star Saber existed in Japan and in tfwiki articles.

    Say what you will about MTMTE, at least it tried to be something, unlike WFC, which is literally nothing.

    I just remembered RID, I hate not getting that encore despite the issues, yet I couldn't justify that price, and ebay isn't helping

    Nope, that was the goal. Casual audiences who remember the show but haven't thought about TFs much since are now going to start seeing them around more and may get hooked again (or at minimum start buying them for their own kids).

    Also, why are we arguing about Star Saber's characterization in IDW as if that is why he isn't getting a toy. IDW Getaway was a manipulative asshole who killed numerous far more well known and popular characters, tried to re-wire Megatron's brain, and destroyed multiple popular relationships in the process.

    He still got a new toy.

    IDW's characterization has nothing to do with Star Saber's lack of a new toy. Mostly because general audiences had no idea it was even A Thing (TM).

    Yeah, but really, who cares how they release it? Just back it and move on.


    A lot. If you get away from the bubble around these boards and the more dedicated fans, you'd see why Hasbro feels like this is a risk.

    so everyone is assuming this will be Star Saber. This is logical, since he was the main character - but was this a leak/rumour or anything? Cause there's other options for Victory, yes? Maybe an official Deathsaurus or a better Liokaiser?

    would easily pay 400 for it with voice clips from Neil Kaplan, Daniel Riordan, and Kim Strauss themselves

    Yes this was actualy leaked. Leak said Star Saber with all of his internal bots plus a Victory Leo stretch-goal if enough Sabers are ordered.

    I would drop 300 for a Liokaiser Combiner, unless they reissued the Combiner wars for this, and Deathsaurus wouldn't be bad but to who does he compliment on the shelf, unless they made his wife

    100% same. That canned Armada Prime would also be a perfect fit for Haslab... but that's never getting made.

    Apparently it was leaked for a second before the leakers realized they goofed by spoiling the surprise and haven't mentioned it since. But Victory Saber does make the most sense.

    I do like when there are evil autobots, it’s a very interesting idea and shows how both sides aren’t black and white but are gray with good decepticons, but bad autobots and vice versa. However star saber is the one I have the biggest issue with him being one of them, due to it being his first and biggest role outside of Japan, it gives the impression that star saber is like that instead of what he actually was. For example in a server I’m in someone called star saber a villain and hated them when the victory haslab was announced. I love the idea of taking characters and giving them new ideas , but not when it’s the very first interpretation outside of Japan, where it makes people think that’s how the character has been and don’t look into their history.

    Never say never, they could say Optimus, and the trailer is finished there, and stretch goals are the extra's like Jetfire and Overload

    I’ve never seen so many grown men complaining about children’s toys. It feels like with every reveal there’s more negativity and arguing surrounding it then anything else.
