    Oh, woe is me, I was starting to think about putting a preorder in anyway until I saw that Mastermind Creations' not-Tesarus (DJD guy with a blender for a torso) is due any time between September and December, between that Certified Big Boi™, MP Tigatron and God Neptune then God Neptune is the one to get the chop :(  (unless I can get the dolla together for all three by then). How inconsiderate of MMC and Takara to not accommodate me personally!

    Ha, I made the exact same comparison. Difference is that for me between MP Maximal 4 out of 7 (aka MUST HAVE), Generations Selects white fish giftset (aka MUST HAVE no.2) and Overpriced Big Boi (aka...OVERPRICED BIG BOI) it was pretty clear who was gonna get all my money in 2020. :D

    I'd love a Gen Selects version of that Golden Rodimus figure!

    As always these are great with expressive and dynamic art, though the translation's not the best.

    Planet Purple is looking pretty black. :tongue:

    I think you both have valid points. There are people here who only ever seem to complain and act as if their niche personal tastes are the priorities of a company that doesn't know they exist. However, there are also people on here who cannot stand the slightest bit of dissenting opinion. You could say you like red more than blue and they'll act like you just shot their dog.

    That Primus is an old lucky draw Rodimus.

    Not that I would say no to a POTP Gold Rodimus/ Primus.

    As best as I can tell, this story is banana-pants nonsense, but I enjoyed the artwork very much.

    Since it was revealed at the end that this Primus is not Primus himself, perhaps we'll get to see the actual Primus in a future comic, possibly with an updated design that reflects the toy we're going to get.

    But I'll be happy anyway if we'll actually get one in the Selects line (whether that's G1, PotP or a new WFC version).

    Yeah, the comic is crazy but it's fun seeing all kinds of seemingly random cool stuff thrown together, lol. :p

    I don't think "Imposter" is the right word for it. More like the Oracle assumed the mantle. It's been previously established in JG1 continuity that Vector Sigma, the Oracle (from both the G1 cartoon and Beast Machines) and Primus are the same entity.

    Unlike Hasbro, Takara is very well-known for drawing from all sorts of points of Transformers history. For example, several Animated characters show up in the comic, despite Hasbro insisting on sweeping everything non-G1 and non-Movie related under the rug. In addition, as stated above the "Primus" figure is a very old gold vacuum-metalized "Lucky Draw" Rodimus Prime. In fact, most, if not all, the characters present are already toys, or are using a character model based on an existing toy.

    What a mess. Guess whoever wrote this manga just read the whole \"Rainbow Corps\" reboot of Green Lantern when they retconned that the Green Battery had some creature inside it, that the Star Sapphires were always a corps (and not just 1 entity who was often a transdimensional evil queen or someone possessing Carol Ferris) and just meshed the whole thing into Transformers. It makes as little sense as expected, dumping characters together based on color. Why are there two Straxuses anyway? And as Decepticons, why would they be hanging with Autobots? AAnd why are various universe\'s Shockwaves serving SG Optimus? He should be in his own universe... and to quote Shockwave, this is all illogical. As is Primacron and Primus coexisting. One is from the cartoon, the other from the Marvel comics.

    I thought the Oracle was a link to Cybertron itself, so likely Primus, but wasn't BW Megatron using Vector Sigma at the same time as Primal to turn the planet cybernetic? I don't think the two are the same.

    Ah, that was too quick of a judgement; I had never heard of the Oracle before.

    What's funny is that I've seen more people accuse others of that than I have seen people actually doing that. It definitely still happens though, but luckily the people who do that also hate each other, haha!

    Back on topic. I'm excited for God Neptune but I do wish it had a tad more color (even though it wouldn't be show accurate). It may have light grays pieces mixed in with the pearl white but the lighting makes it hard to tell on some of the figures. Basically I'd like the details to pop a little more. It's not necessary though as I'm still getting the set but would be cool.

    Oh and 21 more days to pre-order. If you're on the fence, just order it as you can cancel it later. It's better than not having it ordered and then wanting it too late.
