    Aww damn-it I knew it was "Lobhammer."

    I don't care. I'm still calling him "Lovehammer."

    Also....
    Told y'all. Lovehammer's making a comeback and we're getting a Lobclaw repaint.

    Now that’s more like it!

    I doubt it’s the Terrorcons. It’s likely the next toys to be revealed... I’m still hoping for Dinoking (with the sixth member missing for now). Maybe the sixth is Kakuryu, who has his Grimmaster body now.

    Gotta be honest, if it is the Dinoforce I'd feel a little let down that Hasbro didn't deem Monstructor worthy of proper new molds.

    Primatives opens the door for more possibilities than beast warriors.

    This is a Takara initiative, Hasbro probably doesn't have that much say. And I mean if the Seacons didn't get new molds I can't see how the monster pretenders/dinoforce would

    No, but man if they did Seacon level retools of the Dinobot molds to make Dinoforce? Oh hell yeah. I’m sure the fiction would have them get fused to their shells or something to explain it.

    My assumption is that if Dinoking is made, we won't get completely new molds but I do think there will be heavy remolding like the Seacons. I'm also sure Takara has something up their sleeves. Remember how everyone thought the 6th Seacon would have to be legends scale? They might just go full out and make proper outer shells to go with CW/UW remolds or they go with they hybridization like pretenders have been handled lately.

    My method would be to turn the dinobot molds into the outer shells and have Battlemasters painted up to represent the inner bots and have them be able to ride the dinosaurs. I'm sure Takara has something better in mind if they do end up making Dinoking

    Then again, I don't think the Monster Pretenders showing up with Shockwave and Shattered Glass Prime is just coincidence. And if they focus on the inner bots/combiner that's easier than hybridization

    Does the anime address the reason why Dinoforce consists of transfomers that turn into weird creatures inside dinosaur-shaped pretender shells?

    I think the Dinobots dino mode would be heavy retooled. The Dinoforce would need new/ different armor, places to store their new weapons on there backs, and to replace some of the Dinobot robot feet.( those feet are a Dinobot trait).

    I like the Battlemasters idea. But where would they go in robot mode? Or are they like Prime Masters that fits in the gestalt's fists, that go on their backs or chest?

    Alright, My theory.... Lovehammer will be a limb for whoever this shadowy being is, a la Grand Galvatron but with beast modes...

    But isn't this "Primus" not actually Primus so there's a chance they could be bad guys?

    It's Takara/Hasbro, so if Takara didn't want to sell a 5-member Monstructor under the unified brand then that may have been the blocker.

    I think you may have misunderstood my point? I'm assuming - since Hasbro is running the brand - that Hasbro decides. So if Hasbro wanted to do a proper Generations Monstructor (whether or not anytime soon) Takara wouldn't do the Dinoforce as retools of old molds in Generations Selects. Instead they'd just be retools of the Pretender monsters, which would be the favored way.

    If your hobby is putting you in the red you gotta have some hard talks with yourself and get some priorities in order.

    I get the FOMO, and after missing the first few Seacons waiting to see how reviews turned out and not wanting to pay the aftermarket I ended up skipping the whole set and almost ordering God Neptune to fill the void.

    I do, and I know I won't get in the red this year, but last year things just got out of hand somehow really nasty... I know how and am limiting that part of me more, but yeah. I just would rather be safe then sorry as I have loans due
