    Is the only integration mode for these guys simply plugging in their back ports? I have to say the VERS cores have rather spoiled my mind when it comes to integration modes. The OG-Reboot suits (this is getting complicated) did a decent job slotting in with their arms (?).

    For those trying to keep up...

    Mythos Chronological Order (toys only, no models):
    1. Vintage = (sold in 80s) Powered Suits A-C (think Mark I)
    2. 202x Powered Suits = (new set, but chronologically pre-Reboot) A-B (think Mark II)
    3. Powered Suit System = A-F (think Mark III)
    4. Maneuver Suits = (Greek alphabet) Alpha, Beta, etc.
    5. V-Movers = (Vers) 1-4
    Note: I said "no models" because they adapted a lot of "Powered Suit Real Types" including A-C and Alpha, Beta, etc. without the "Maneuver" distinction for Greek alphabet.

    I keep trying to place them *after* the reboot power suits… being their predecessor (middle step between vintage and reboot) makes a lot more sense. Though the helmet flipping up is still strange to me…. But it predates ride (?) mode which I keep forgetting the first set of reboot suits still did (guess they have the lumbar hip slide in the back? - I only got one set super later after Red Lightning came out and they’re all packs at the moment ).

    I feel you man… if it is any consolation it will help with your box problem - easier to make the decision to dump the boxes. Hope the contents are fine.

    maybe AJ will offer you a goodwill cash voucher if you write in?

    Normally transformation and articulation in the video is true to the toy. So those looking for insights and details for Powered Convoy can study the clip

    That was Probably my favourite diaclone pv so far. Pretty interesting that they had great powered dock with v-shadow instead of v-max.

    Agreed that’s the best PV they’ve put out so far! Looks like the Rippers aren’t that strong a force though— looks like you need about 120 of them for each Battle Convoy to have a good fight :D

    But if you ordered 120 of them you will have to order 3-4 times that in different recolors lol…

    I really like these new suits.
    Now I'm hoping they make an all white one so I can slap a Cobra symbol on it.

    The swords will be confiscated by the larger suits with wrist bend:

    My suits hit my Stash this morning. And got a notification that DA-75 & 76 will arrive in 1 day (possibly 3). I was hoping for after the 8th, but had to cancel. Hope the supply holds out.

    Warudaros is apparently gonna be in stock at TCP in one day, according to the email I got. That’s way sooner than I was expecting. Was really really hoping I had another month.
