    For a quick translation, left to right, top to bottom:

    Q: How many are you?
    A: 5 United!

    Q: Are there weapons?
    A: Every member comes with sword (I think, could be melee) and gun

    Q: Is Scylla a female?
    A: Yes, new head and body, a new female type! I will go into further details next week

    Q: Is it a set?
    A: Yes, it is a set!

    Very much so.

    Looks like I'm in. Also, glad I got Nautilator, I had zero hopes for Lobclaw making it to this set.

    Hmm, ok I'm in. I didn't care for the weird pale plastic on Ape-face (among other documented issues) because it stood out awkwardly with the other materials and felt a bit like a bait and switch after seeing the starkly shaded render.

    But here it doesn't bother me. For one, there is no render, that's what it's going to look like. Takara's not in the habit of cutting back on the paints they revealed with. For another not only is it the base color, the entire team has the same pallette. So the metallics popping against the soft focus white feel intentional.

    Box sets are a big bite, but I'll take it.

    I like him, even with the milky white plastic. It kinda works for me in this set (and at least it’s white and not the annoying dishwater-grey).

    As for why Nautilator wasn’t included with either this or the original KP set, we know why... he’s shy.

    The best panel in the comic, in my opinion:

    E91523A0-915E-4BBD-B329-55F0F332B0DA.jpeg

    Cyberverse, Prime, Animated and Cloud Shockwave all together.

    Cool, but I like King Poseidon and the color scheme on him better. The united color scheme on this looks better on the combined form than on the individual bots IMO. Cool for the fans of BWII though.

    Have I missed a chapter of this comic? I mean, OK. It's always a hot mess of barely comprehensive multi-universe crossover strung together by a stupid plot that entirely relies on masterbatory, obscure references and it never makes much sense... but where this chapter starts doesn't seem to be the same place that the Super Megatron chapter ended?

    That "gold" Fire Convoy is actually yellow, and is based off the old Sam's Club Optimus Prime for the TF Universe line. I hope that means there's a chance there'll be a re-issue of it, but who knows. If they do, I hope they fix the fact that the inner Prime boy has that really weird off color red chest.

    Nautilator deserves so much better. Nautilator never gets any love. At least it could have been the guy on a buffalo: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ4T9CQA0UM

    The whole comic is full of older figures. I don't think it's any indication that any of them are going to be re-released, just that the artist has them and they were good choices for the given colors.

    Thoughts on God Neptune, I have King Poseidon and I really do enjoy that set but God Neptune has a color scheme that just turns me off on the set, dark teal with tons of white nylon, silver and gold just doesn't work for me. I would like to see the set get a Universe repaint though, I liked the purple and orange on that set.
