    That's disappointing to hear! :( 

    But that's the issue with Hasbro molds... Lack of good QC/engineering. Of course, there's bound to be a 3P solution soon... But that just makes everything even more expensive! :cry

    Im so sick of all these exclusives that amount to being way too expensive to get. I know i know, hasbro would never make em for a worldwide market blah blah. Still sucks though.

    He's still a cool toy despite that though. Just a little too top heavy.

    Got my order in at Hasbro pulse! Got to wait to get home to try and order a second though. Not enough in my checking for the precharge. Kind of sad that tfsource' is upcharged like crazy unlike their Ultra Megs. Oh well.

    Pretty much. Remember that it was the severed rider minicon with tentacles that claimed to be unicron (unless I'm misremembering the sequence of events), so more or less I see it as Sideways was normally in control/a willing puppet but could be taken over by Unicron at any time via the minicon headmasters. Without the headmasters his direct link to Unicron was severed and he could go about his mischievous business

    Any speculation as to what TT-GS05 is? It was skipped in the numbering.

    TT-GS01 Star Convoy
    TT-GS02 Seacons Kraken
    TT-GS03 Seacons Turtler
    TT-GS04 Seacons Gulf
    TT-GS05 ????
    TT-GS06 Seacons Lobclow
    TT-GS07 Seacons Overbite
    TT-GS08 Seacons Tentakil
    TT-GS09 Super Megatron
    TT-GS10 God Neptune

    Oh....my...it's beautiful!

    I love God Neptune. But I am going to be pissed at myself for buying this due to it's price now given the general unease at this time of unemployment. And I will be pissed at myself for not buying this due to it's price later.

    It would be nice to have though.

    If you can, I recommend selling Plasma as it can be a decent price a month, and will easily cover this figures price as that is what I am doing atm

    I'm not sure what's going on in the comic, but I just have to ask, is there a more "I don't give a fuck" picture in all of Transformers?

    he definitely had the helmet head on while saying he and sideways are one in the same, and then unicron died and sideways freaked out and said you’ve ruined everything and tried to run away, I originally interpreted that as his unicron body was destroyed and all he had left was his weaker sideways body and he tried to flee, but then cybertron be like naw he was just some dude that worked for him XD
    (damn cybertron and all it’s continuity errors)

    You can blame takara for the continuity kerfuffle. Hasbro intended Cybertron to be a sequel, they handed it over to Takara to contract a studio for the cartoon and Takara more or less went rogue on the plan and let Gonzo do whatever they wanted for the show, causing Hasbro to have to do damage control. I suspect that is part of the reason Takara has not been in the driver seat of global transformers media since.

    So Scylla has a new chest right? Any other new parts or changes to the set from King Poseidon/Pirhanacon?

    Of course the modern deluxe is the better mold, but as far as color scheme goes, i think i prefer the original.
