    And even they didn't show Slammer's tower mode, or handle his turrets properly, which is so frustrating

    Is Takara still doing the Legends (or Legends styled) comic? These bunch of mismatched randos with little media representation being together in the same panels is something that would grab my attention.

    I can see hasbro ignoring the tower mode because it would cause a lot of logistical problems advertising an 8 year old toy with a huge ebay price tag. Grandma's $20 impulse buy for little Timmy just cost his parents an extra $xxx when he whines he needs a Metroplex because the Slammer instructions show them combining.

    You are a good parent and I applaud you. :) 

    But it would only take a few helicopter moms complaining online that their "most special and perfect little superstar" was *gasp!* denied an advertised item because it was unavailable for 7+ years to make Hasbro look bad. Then they'd either need some sort of statement saying "this is an Easter egg for long-time collectors" ("but timmy is a super wonderful amazing fan, even though he's only 6!") Or do a hasty, unplanned reissue of Metroplex that potentially looses a lot of $ and has a lot of unsold stock.

    It seems that the distribution to Japan is taking longer and longer, all the West must already have wave 4 and 5 of Kingdom.
