    I want quantron's team done in colors appropriate to the design they are based off, a white lightcycle, the vic viper (two colors if applicable!) And any other sort of alternate colors appropriate, make it be the "geekbot" where they are such geeks they scanned their alt modes from their favorite fictions.

    Ironically I've been hearing that alot on the boards. Especially when I don't like a titans return figure because it's based on a toy design that came out five years before I was born. (Cough sixshot cough cough)

    Got both the tm sixshot and the black ko hexatron, and hex blows him out of the water.

    In Japan, you can still find decent condition official Lio Convoys in the used toy/collector shops. For a decent price, too.

    Hm, that's too bad. I've got no use for an oversized version of the Warbotron Computron. If anything, I'd want it to be original size.

    I like the idea of an oversized Maketoys Quantron because those figures were already a bit on the small side, and I think that Maketoys' highly detailed stuff might look good blown up in size.

    Like, so big that they go with nothing? I think they're big enough. I wouldn't say no to good, affordable KO Dinobots though.

    I don't think they're meant to be compared... one is a $60 mass-market toy, and the other is a $200 collectible. :wink: 

    That said, I also have the KO Hexatron, and have handled the real thing, and I actually do like the Titans version of Sixshot better than Hexatron. I feel like there are issues with Hexatron's design in general, but I also appreciate the more boxy G1 aesthetic... it's sort of astounding that Hasbro is making something so faithful to the original, but I would agree that the Titans Leader class is a bit too blocky.

    But yeah, you'll probably hear that a lot more, since my generation is only getting older, and we're at just the right age to be in denial about it. :lol

    Please God no...


    Do I really need a megatron-esk t-rex with a huge falic Dino headed protrusion in my collection as a conversation piece for years to come?




    Where's Gawddammit when you need him.


    Save a set Paul... I may not be able to pass it up. :lol

    What's really great is how surprised the dino head looks. Just utterly shocked by the condition of its existence.

    Not sure if these belong in KO or 3P. They work out to about £4 each. I might pick a couple up

    It's like an old friend come to town. I've got so damn many of these things. I love the kinda sortta BW-G1 hybrid style, and while some of the designs are better executed than other (T-Rex Crotch is in the fail camp), they're actually SUPER nicely constructed in most of the iterations I've had. Just big chunky fun.

    That makes sense because although I believe their Bruticus is doing well I am sure it is tamped down significantly by the knowledge of TW's. I know that happened with me. They would want a significant lead time to sell as many as possible before TW announces their version. We know TW is doing all of them and has full prototypes already for Bruticus and Superion and is supposedly going to announce Menasor in the next couple of months. I would tell you the three they announce for next year would be Defensor, Computron, and Abominus.
