    No, you're not alone in that thinking. It is definitely an odd item... It feels incomplete. I get that TTMall items usually are primarily repacked/repaints, but this is a weird offering. I think I said earlier that it feels like wheels or wings were accidentally omitted.

    I thought DA-87 was a TTomy exclusive. Seems cheap if it is

    So, i arranged my usual blanket diorama and took some shots of the da-69 (again, LOLZ. No wonder he's my favorite after the Gigantor...)

    Here's the two sets, i'm not that good at taking pics, so they're really bad (i would say i suck at it, but considering we're talking about da-69 i don't feel comfortable using that word).

    Also, i find this

    more appealing than this

    Holy shit man. It’s a great figure, so I get it and can’t say I wouldn’t do it if I was in a similar situation, but dang. Congrats on the purchase either way, I hope you enjoy it!

    i have a feeling this set is gonna be bigger than expected. It still feels about $20 high…. But maybe that’s the TTM tax. I was kind of hoping instead of the L-bracket they’d given us the t-bracket so that it could have been more compatible as a triverse chest harness like they show with Powered.

    So… how long does EMS shipping from Robotkingdom usually take? In the US.

    I’d say just find out what you respond to the most and chase after that. If you’re not goo to be buying ever as it comes out then you have some flexibility in terms of what you can pursue.

    I'm curious about the Powered weapons set. I'm holding off on Powered Convoy right now in hopes we get a whole set in vintage Powered Convoy colors, but would such a set include this? I'm not sure.

    that’s the big gamble at the moment. They also could split the difference with some of the accessories; like I doubt we’d get double sword drones

    With how different the combined form looks compared to magnus, it seems like the reboot line is trying to branch into newer, original designs as opposed to directly referencing the original toys. So it's hard to say whether they'll release the whole set in magnus colours, but I'd imagine at least convoy himself will get multiple recolours outside of just nemesis and prime colours.

    While it’s true I don’t think we’ll see a red/white/blue Ultra Magnus- I think getting and all blue with red/silver highlights on the same vein as the D-Calibur set to match the Triverse set of three (four) is likely. I can see them throwing in the powered parts and parts of DA-88 set. I think where we’ll see the most divergence will be with what cores it comes with. They could potentially omit all of V-Max’s or 88s or Powered’s cores. Or… *most* likely whatever this “big set” *will* have are unique cores (or head variants) exclusive to it.

    Other than paint… I’m surprised this set doesn’t have any unique parts. But I do feel it gives you the “most useable/mixable” parts from the Raptor Head set.

    I know this thread was saying the Bug Head (maybe it was just the unique one with Bloody/Brady” stang).
