    I'm not sure I'd like Guile being repainted from Starscream as in my mind it would be Guile partnered with Starscream which doesn't work.

    Maybe one of the Aerialbots instead?

    Maybe jetfire? He’d be massive but it would fit the generations aesthetic.

    Mike only applies to Boxer.

    For Dictator, it's just M.

    :rolleyes: 

    This is what I was talking about right here. The leader of Shadowloolaw is named Mr. Mike Bison. His henchman is Master Boxer.

    Let, it, go.

    I'd love to see Guile. He'd HAVE to be a jet, of course, but sadly no TF head sculpt can mimic the greatest hair in fighting games.

    No but they could try. This line proves takar’s ability to paint well done details on unnatural sculpts. And there’s definitely one figure that can do it justice.

    It's too bad these sets are so pricey! :(  I like them... maybe not $90-120 like them! :banghead:  Cause they do look a bit like the TFs are cosplaying! :lol 

    Dammit... MUST... RESIST... :cry

    Attitude Era? What about the Federation Era (1984-1992) and the New Generation Era (1993-1997)? Don't left out these two eras!

    I got mine today and they look great in hand. Hot Rod/Ken’s legs are a bit loose like the original versions. I’ll fiddle with them more tomorrow.

    I really wish they had used the Headmaster Arcee though, so to match the others. I understand why they chose the Generations one (for the trademark Chun-Li “thunder thighs”) but I would have definitely preferred the other mold. I also wish they had used different faceplates instead of just repainting the ones that went with the molds originally.

    Still neat figures as a novelty.

    While most of us call him Bison in the West, let's take a moment to realize how silly it is for a dictator to be named after a type of moo-cow.

    Vega doesn't sound that much scarier as a name tbh, but I want to imagine the M. stands for "Milton".

    The toys are a weird but kinda interesting collector's piece. The Megatron and Ken molds especially work better than they should. Too bad Ken still has the issues the mold is known for (loose hips, right arm not locking tight in car mode), but that's expected. Nice that they recreated Ken's epic eyebrows via Hot Rod's head crest.

    I also like the subtle, you-won't-notice-it-at-first touch that Ryu and Ken have their black belts painted on. Also, Ryu's belt's gold lettering on the sides of the truck mode.

    While they could have used the TR Arcee mold, she's a bit blocky/chunky, so I think T30 Arcee works better aesthetically. Not to mention that mold's Leia buns work too perfectly as Chun-Li's.

    So I like them! Not sure TT will do more in the future, but these are a nice last hurrah for the TR molds...until they get used again for a $3,000 TT Mall exclusive set or whatever.

    Exactly! The fact that the others happen to be TR molds is simply a factor of what was available, and TT is clearly downplaying that aspect, to look at the packaging. The intention is to get the SF characters in TF form, and there's no disputing that T30 Arcee is far superior at evoking Chun-Li than TR Arcee could possibly have been.

    Oh I completely understand why they used that mold. I just like my sets to match. I don’t have a little chun-li Headmaster to go with the others.

    I can understand the issue with that but I think this mold just simply fits more than the Titans return one. I think it was a good compromise. Also that mold is everywhere.

    Same for me. I would have even preferred them to be single packed instead of double packed. If that was the case, I might have at least bought the Chun Li Arcee and considered the Bison/Vega Megatron.

    If this were to continue, I'd love to see PoTP Optimal Optimus become Zangief. Those are some serious grappler hands he has. Maybe the inner Primal could be repainted to be Mecha Zangief from the VS games. And in his chest, he carries the Matrix of MUSCLE SPIRIT!

    Ya know, that's a good idea. If this sub-series sold well, I think it would be a lot of fun for Takara to continue it.

    PotP OpOp --> Zangief
    TR Octane or Alpha Trion/Lioconvoy --> Akuma/Gouki. Octane's head sculpt reminds of Akuma's wild hair but it would be boring to reuse it since Ryu is already using it. Maybe A3/Lioconvoy cause the lion design reminds me of Akuma's "beastly" nature.
    ??? --> Guile, maybe TR Broadside, since it fits with the air force (although that mold is kinda weak).
