    In Asia, we get a lot Jap anime back then. We also got the toys first before they were rebranded as Transformers, but Jetfire stood out as the toy was already featured in an anime prior.

    You can google it. Since 2007, when Tobey Maguire's company was supposed to produce it.

    Awww... not again!

    In Asia, yeah. Macross came out 3 years before Transformers, which is like, an eternity in kid-years. The Valkyrie would definitely be old news by the time Hasbro used the mold. :) 

    Wow, 2007? Sounds dead to me. :(

    The latest updates seem to be from 2017 when It director Andy Muschietti and one of the writers of Wonder Woman were attached. However, IMDB currently only lists next year's The Flash and an in-development Attack On Titan as Muschietti's upcoming projects.

    2007? I hate to break it to you, but that project is deader than the proverbial doornail.

    Not if you Google it. There's stuff happening for the past 14 years, up until recently.

    Some films spent decades in development before eventually releasing

    I hope that's true. I'll keep a fire burning for Pride & Predator. They weren't ready for it in 1999, but I'm sure it'll be more relevant than ever in 2021! :lol

    I stand corrected...I hadn't realized that HG and Big West worked out their shit earlier this year and that the conversation included live action plans. That's good news and changes things significantly. Here's to hoping.

    Yeah, no guarantees that it will still happen, but at least there's still life in this yet.

    But if Bay is directing, then I am Audi 5000.

    Any chance the Psycho Orb is upscaled? Or is it regular sized?

    I got one. It was floppy as all hell. Thin wheels. Kinda meh to be honest. I should have saved a bit of cash and bought steamroll instead. Except I hate steamrolls knees.

    There's KO MP12+ & 14+.

    淘宝网 - 淘!我喜欢

    I have the 14+, wasn't as good as my KO MP 12. Torso doesn't stay tabbed in, loose joints, The worst was alt mode, where it can't completely tab in, leaving gaps (You can see it in the product shot above).

    By comparison, the only problem my KO MP 12 (not the + version) had was the gun's tab being too small for the hands. But that seems like a common problem for a lot of the KO TT MP's.
