    I'm looking forward to seeing Fort Max with those awesome Iron Factory and DX9 figures.

    Well, I have compared Masterpieces sizes with deluxes sizes, and I can say that my mind is more open to this toy. However, I will wait for Takara version
    I would love a "Head On !" sound when you put Emissary┬┤s head in Cerebros' body

    this looks great and is a wonderful thing for people who dont have fortess maximus but for me I prefer the encore one. HOWEVER , I am buying this soley for cerebros , always wanted him and the original does not look anything like it. ( and it shouldnt because thats not how he looked in the Japanese series ). I do wonder if takara will repaint/remold thiers to look like the headmaster series

    Does anyone have a good source that compares the 3 decos (with pics would be awesome) on this and explains things like the variations on the things included... and are there two versions of the Cerebros or something?

    Thank you so much! I saw one with red feet when I was trying to sort it out. Do you have any idea what that was?

    Red feet was the Hasbro TR Prototype, seems on evidence in the shift to full production the feet ending up on the blue sprues was more cost effective.

    Price will determine which Fort Max I get between SDCC and TT. But honestly all three versions are disturbing due to those bunny shin guns.

    The same one also has grey hands

    They brought that one to Botcon too

    But by that time he'd been shown in Australia and that version had red feet and blue hands!

    See. THIS is why I am so confused! LOL.

    I think I like the Takara best, but they are sold out at my go to site, BBTS.

    I like the sword, but I hate the red legs beyond the red guns. I don't really want to the Rebirth Cerebros. I can probably go with the Takara version and then just look for a supplemental Mastersword.

    What are you guys leaning toward and why?

    Takara's probably the right one for you, then. AFAIK that's likely (though not yet confirmed) to come with a version of the sword as well as having the different deco.

    Me, I'm up for the regular TR release and hoping a 3P picks up the slack with a decent set of guns and Gasket/Grommet/Cog.

    Takara teased the swords via sillhouette anyway. If you're dead set on a US retailer just go with The Chosen Prime as they still have the preorder open (also free shipping and service is good). Otherwise I'm quite certain HLJ, Amiami, or some j-tailor still has it.

    Thanks guys, I went ahead and preordered a Takara version. That would be sweet if it came with the sword. :)
