    I was asking the previous poster why he bought Tigertrack twice, and was wondering if it was because he wanted one of each version. Sideswipe and Red Alert were released in the Korean market packaged in the box in robot mode, rather than car mode, and there was also a version of Tigertrack the same way

    One ko and one official ;) 
    I thought I'd be content with the ko but the paint job on the hood wasn't the best.

    Yeah, I want a Deep Cover that matches the other Lambos that I already have. I’m very satisfied with the current Sideswipe mold and would be pretty irritated at having to buy all of them all over again. In all honesty I don’t much care for the hyper toon-accurate stuff and will probably pass on a hypothetical future re-do. That’s why I’m really hoping they release Deep Cover as a final hurrah of the mold.

    ...and Takara might be making DK-3 Breaker out of Riggy...

    And Riggorus might be getting the Selects Deluxe Class treatment as a repaint from Earthrise Trailbreaker with a new head... Even though the cartoon Trailbreaker head is what most people is accustomed to, but a yellow head with red visor using the Earthrise Trailbreaker head? Yeah...

    I won't be getting this as I'm just sticking to the main guys in this mould, but that's beautiful. Yellow isn't usually my go to colour for vehicles but this really works.

    Still a bit grumpy they didn't include the force effect with the guy who is actually KNOWN for that abilitu (he did get a blast effect instead but if he could only have one, I'd go for the former. Give this Riggorus the blast effect! The cynic in me wonders if they gave it to this relatively unknown character to increase the chance of Trailbreaker owners getting this too.

    There's a third party set of effects I have my eye on but one in the box would have been nice.

    I hope Takara also releases blue Trailbreaker as well as yellow Trailbreaker.

    If these dont sell better, we won't be worrying about repaints. I think this looks better than both molds, but like them doesn't look like it really appeals to anyone outside of Transformers fans.

    Here it is.

    There is also a YouTube review there.

    At £20 it's rather more expensive than I'd hoped for an effects kit (I had an idea it was around £15 for some reason. But you do get a few bits.

    None are the nice big field like with Riggorus but they work as projection stage effects to attach to weapons.

    Thank you! I like that spiral effect… Might have to consider that kit.

    Why doesn’t Riggorus have any Decpticons symbols anywhere? I know he was originally a Diaclone but no little evil purple faces anywhere? What gives?

    I also hope he has something even if it is stickers. Though I hate stickering over that damn crease on the Hilux hood.

    If he has symbols they better be stickers.

    When’s Riggorus get released again? Everyone is clamoring for Hoist (myself included!) but I’m really looking forward to exploring the very interesting mashup of the Hoist mold and the Trailbreaker mold (plus some significant new parts, apparently) that’s giving us Riggorus!
