    i wonder if they\'re considering doing a Nautilator in matching colors just for the heck of reusing that mold

    I'd like Commander class combiners. They would only be the combined form and the individual vehicle modes that they split into. No individual robot modes for the components. The benefits would be that the combined mode and the vehicles would look better than if they had to become robots as well.

    That “goofy” cartoon is only reason this repaint will even exist

    Shame it didn't meet the standards of all the other serious, flawless Transformers media the rest of our childish playthings are based on.

    damn shame, they didn’t even murder anyone in energon/lava, and none of the main maximals died in a glorious end like Dinobot

    Supreme Devastator says otherwise.
    And the Power Core Combiners, to an extent.

    I've never seen the cartoon but if I recall the summaries doesn't everyone die at the end?

    For older collectors. I bought one off a guy for my son and he loves it. Even when he can't combine it himself yet. Best part? He leaves my SS Constructicons alone now because he has his own.

    Sure, he's only 3...but since these are toys, I'd consider a kid loving it a success.

    PCC was a neat idea poorly executed. Given a second go at it, I'd love to see Hasbro sell beefier limb drones along side the pack-in spring-loaded ones.

    Also, some of those guys should cross over in to CW/PotP territory. Steamhammer and Grimstone especially.

    I’d definitely be in for a separate release of Nautilator in these colours. If they made perhaps 1 Nautilator redeco for every ten or twenty God Neptune sets that’s probably more than enough for every one who’d want one.

    Regardless I’m going to be pretty stoked to have both of these teams on my shelf.

    I think they are past the point of adding an extra toy to the set, so if they did make a 6th team member (fingers crossed) then it seems most likely to shove it in a brown box - though I suppose if Botcon is comming back eventually it could be something that makes it's way there too.

    I do think there is the additional advantage of being able to remove scylla from the combination (if she's friendlier to the Maximals/Cybertrons) to display her on her own - but also if one thinks it might be a bit confusing mentally to have 1/5th of your mind female then making her the gun and so perhaps less attached to the gestalt mind makes for a more effective mental bond too perhaps.

    Though I don't know for certain that may not actually be an issue in some segments of Japanese continutity though due to how some combiners are basically placing the limbs into a semi-concious slave state and they just work as a power up mode to the core-team leader - so there is little appreciable change to their mental map - I do prefer that they actually have a gestalt mind though - that does make them more interesting in terms of power dynamic and evolutionary expansion of the Transformers Species.

    Wouldn't that basically be power ranger zords?
    I kinda liked the power core combines. Not executed well. If they ever revisited the idea, I think I could be done better.

    Right. The exclusives were always more than mainline figures and sets. The new “Generation Selects” are all exclusives.

    No. While I liked the concept of PCC, I hated the execution and wished they all had individual minicon modes for limbs..

    The news posts for this on the front page says King Poseidon, instead of God Neptune.

    Well, as long as we both agree that it was goofy, maybe it's safe to say that if it wasn't so goofy it might've existed even longer...

    BTW, in a nutshell, the first one says, that they've done an interview and will post it soon, in the meantime, enjoy the pictures. The second is that turtles seem to be inherently cool to kids and Halfshell capitalized on that.

    As a brief aside, I'm watching BWII now, on episode 10. I can't say I'm enjoying it, especially after having come off of BWNeo. 20 years ago-ish, I saw around the first six to BWII and gave up on the series, skipped to the movie (Which I did enjoy), then moved on, watching all of BWNeo that I could find on the fledgling internet. So, watching them proper now during quarantine, though amusingly, the last (new) episode of BWNeo doesn't quite go as I remembered, so that was a bit surprising.

    I was hanging out on buying the seacons until they were all out and I'm glad I did. This set will be much better.

    The white plastic isn't that bad. A black paint pen could make it look 100x better if it really bothers you.

    The people belly aching about it just remind me how anal and stupid this fanbase and web site is. Keep it trashy kids.
