    Hopefully TT announces Lovehandles soon. I’m all for adding new characters to the lore. I love Off-road and Alpha Bravo and Megatronia, etc.

    I tried, I have loans that start being due in October and sell plasma to break even more or less. If I could I would, but I crunched numbers and it is just too close for any comfort

    It happens. I can still get little things here and there, but a big set like that just wasn't possible and safe as well

    Same. I know it's unlikely he'd be anything more, but part of me kinda hopes he has something to give him a slightly enhanced gun mode.

    Seems like we're going to get the 5 Primitives revealed first, then presumably Lovehammer.

    Remolding/new tooling is possible, Scylla got some and the Comic also makes the 6th members fate ambiguous. He’s last seen being abducted so I could see him being released as an Evil version under the control of the entity that abducted him.

    In the comic, White Convoy said to use the power of the Silver Matrix to rescue Lawbhammer. When he is reformatted, will he have much more silver/grey (compared to his crew) and be considered part of a Silver/Grey Order (Planet)?

    I went ahead and canceled my preorder. I lost interest in this with every new photo.

    In the previous one. White Convoy said it right after GN cuts Megatron Omega in half.

    Speculation.

    King Poseidon in God Neptune configuration. Stock configuration can't hold up the combined pew pews well but not as bad as Targetmaster bot mode.

    King Poseidon trying to hold the Matrix Saber as seen in the God Neptune web comic. One arm can't support so using both. To be fair, the Optimus figure bundled with the sword couldn't hold it up either (without mods).

    For both, without mods, using Manta Ray as weapon holding arm would be more stable as he can pseudo lock his combiner 'elbow' into place.

    We are just about a month removed from the last entry in the Selects comic and I think I join all y'all in voicing my impatience with learning who these Primitives are.

    Hahaha that's funny. Were you able to get your hands on the regular Seacons?

    Didn’t have the money at the time. Besides I decided to focus on Studio Series.

    Just tossing a note in here: That last Selects comic that teased "Primitives" sure makes sense now that we know there's a whole slew of beast molds coming for Takara to work with.

    That color scheme is *chef kiss.*

    I know Pulse says October, but they're usually two months off the Takara date. So if he comes over Christmas that'll be a nice little stocking stuffer.

    Looks great.

    Ive never ordered JP exclusives over pulse so hopefully it wont be too bad.

    It has the skinny chicken thighs which I abhor in the Silverbolt mold so that's the only thing I'd look for in an upgrade.

    I think the initial offering (Star Convoy) was a bit bumpy due to being early in the relationship. But by the time the last wave of Seacons were shipping it was pretty well down to an art.
