    The scene references SSSS Gridman whose main villain is modelled after Shattered Glass Optimus. She makes model monsters and an alien living in her computer brings them to life. His voice actor also plays Shockwave in Cyberverse. Hence, Sakamoto swings it round by referencing Gridman.

    Jontron is a combiner now? He merges with his parrot Jacques? :D 
    I take it you meant the Jointrons, but they would need to be brand new molds. I doubt that'll happen anytime soon, Takara only remolds stuff, not make new molds. Maybe once Hasbro starts doing a new toyline based on Beast Wars, we can have a new Magnaboss/Tripredacus and their repaints.

    ...Fair point. :( 

    I never did.

    But the thing about God Neptune's plastic color is that it looks...milky and unfinished. It's like they were painting the toys, but they ran out of silver or cream paint, so they thought "eh, maybe no one will notice."

    I got half a mind to believe that if someone painted the white parts on GN (and Apeface) with silver, it'd look vastly better.

    Does anyone know if Hasbro Pulse Charges on preorders or no? Like when do they charge involving preorders from those that have dealt with it

    Sure. That's why we have new molds for Apeface and Spinister and Scorponok and Fasttrack and Runamuck and redecos of guys like the Powerdashers or a brand new mold for a character like Impactor who never had his own toy before... ;) 

    To all the people here complaining about "milky white plastic"... a question?
    Do you actually have WFC Siege Apeface?
    'cause I do, and he is perfectly fine. That plastic is detailed and guess what, it even shows up detailed on photos. It is also not weak or fragile.
    Stop complaining based on internet photos as "evidence" and maybe wait until you can see it with your own eyes and touch it with your own hands

    Not right away. Only when the thing's getting shipped.

    Like, I pre-ordered Super Megatron last month, but he's not coming until September, so I should be charged by then.

    They do a full charge immediately but then reverse it within a few days. Or at least they used to.

    I dunno how SG Optimus having a lollipop is comparable to random anime girl watching what seems like Evangelion on her computer, but sure, whatever...
    And what do you mean by "cuts"? Don't you mean "cameos"? 'cause Prime has Animated Bomb-Burst and Submarauder as toys apparently (odd considering he is supposedly a murderous psychopath tyrant last I checked that universe) and also G1 Bugly.

    WUT. Is that for real? But how is "girl has a purple jacket" a reference to SG Optimus? You can make the argument with that logic that she is a reference to Shockwave, or Impactor, or any purple transformer. Or you can say that Captain America is a reference to Optimus Prime because they both are red, white and blue heroes... :p

    So you can't have an opinion on God Neptune unless you pay 200 dollary doos and have it in hand? That's a bit ridiculous, especially if it is later confirmed to be like Apeface since people can use that as a reference to see if it's something they like or not.
    I've owned both Apeface and G1 Siege Sideswipe and already know if God Neptune plastic is like those it's a hard pass despite me liking these characters.

    you mean like to check if the account at least has money on a hold and then drop it? I had a plasma card that made me hate ordering from Amazon cause they did the same with it each and every damn time

    They don't charge formally until the item ships, however they do put a cover charge on your card when you order then immediately refund it

    People, you have a full month to figure out your preorder situation and it's exclusive, so it's going to be difficult trying to find it elsewhere.

    PAY ATTENTION
