    Youd be amazed at how much enjoyment something can bring when “scale” and “canon” are tossed to the curb.





    p.s., that isn’t aimed at you directly, I’m just getting sick of those buzzwords constantly getting thrown around as if they actually matter in the grand scheme of things.

    They will. TTMail took about 10 days to get their Unicron listing up and running.

    I just want it to be the same size as the LG Ginrai. I am far from a scale nazi, but in my master display, it will stop me from dropping $200 (after tax) x2 if it doesn't fit in my display how I like with a God Ginrai flanked by his separate bots and Victory Saber somewhat the same. Got enough renditions of "classic" characters where it doesn't matter for retail bots, but at the price point, it does if I am gonna be buying more than one.

    Scale to me is like what graphics are for me in a video game. The lowest priority when it comes to my purchasing decisions.

    If this is a success, I don't think we're going to have to wait long for PMOP and Godbomber. And I'm talking about at retail.

    I would love to see a true Power Master Prime and not the Titan master gimmick one we got.

    I'd love a new proper God Ginrai, so much so that I'd buy the Fire Guts repaint too!

    I'm pretty sure that a good commander class PMOP would sell well. Come on Hasbro, make it happen dammit!

    Yeah, there's no way PMOP wouldn't be retail. He's Optimus Prime, any figure of him will sell like hotcakes

    I\'m happy the animes are getting some figures but I\'m just asking for some armada stuff Hasbro. I have been waiting almost 3 years now

    There's going to be UT stuff in the next line, including the titan.

    It’s ok you’ll get g1 figures repainted into armada characters next year. Should be sufficient.

    I would love a proper New Rodimus toy. That's such a fantastic idea for the character to be a fire truck.

    I would absolutely love to see that made real. We desperately need a "Concept Series" at some point. A trilogy of Generations figures based on ideas they never had a chance to do until now.

    It took over 25 years for BW to get any major share of generations. So I'm not shocked it's taking a few more before UT gets its turn.

    It does matter. People want consistency across their collection. So yeah, scale is something that's important to a lot of people. Long gone are the days of Ultra Nightscreen Basic Silverbolt. Hopefully they stay gone.

    There is no escaping graphics. The player is looking at them the entire time. I have no shame in saying if I don't like the graphics, I ain't buying the game.

    Keeping in mind that great art direction can make great graphics from even just a pile of pixels and 32 colors, of course.

    You don't get charged if it doesn't get funded, so if that's your only concern then there's no reason not to back it.

    Hey this is a dumb question, but can Saber’s head turn? I’m not 100% sure how the gimmick works, since I didn’t watch the stream.
