    On a more serious note for new names for the breast force...maybe heart masters? Still keeps that torso theming, and works against the autobot brainmasters thematically

    Sorry I didn’t make myself clear lol. In Siege and Earthrise the Micromasters were sold in two packs and that price point is now the core class. So it would be a core class two pack akin to Siege and Earthrise. So it’d be Core Class Rescue Patrol having Pipo and Boater.

    They will be neck-masters and shout "Chin-Up!" When they pop in

    I started watching victory and I understand Holi and etc were micromaster toys but I wish we got them as core class just to get a better representation of the on screen model, just thinking that would be cool. You can only do so much on micromasters. To be clear I understand budget and so on im just saying in a vacuum I’d prefer a dream core class figure. Also watching Victory makes me want all those characters as figures.

    I’m fairly selective with every season, but when it comes to Victory, I just can’t help but be a completist. I just love everyone’s character and toys on that show.

    I’m feeling the same way! Something about everyone’s character model just makes me want all of them as toys. Had me thinking what characters have toys now currently? Just greatshot and Ginrai for the autobots. Decepticons it’s sky shadow and that combiner wars liokaiser which only the limbs are decent enough representations. Hope the the whole casts is done eventually. Would love a proper liokaiser and I’m looking forward to the rumored 2023 Deathsaurus

    Are we getting something else for backing? I’m not talking about another tier or anything, but I think Unicron came with a comic or something like that. Something small.

    If Unicron came with a comic then a victory manga would be nice, although I think they have to translate one and I don’t they think they’ll do that.

    They could release it in the West for a start. That'd be enough for me. Maybe remove the headmaster gimmick and add articulated hands, but he doesn't really suffer from small-face syndrome like Overlord does, so even the head isn't that big a deal. I just want to buy one for less than $110.

    Don’t know if they would include it, but the Victory manga has already been officially translated.

    I know he's a tiny dude, but I do hope the final product manages to get just a little bit of silver on the Brain or Courage's face. Other than that, I think the prototype’s paint job is fantastic.

    Still going to call them the breast force, I just love how silly it sounds for a deception elite squad.

    Viz X hasbro collab! Sign me up!

    Odds are tho, maybe they will give us whatever tie-in manga that the Takara market would get with their release of Victory Saber.

    I have not received an email about payment. But when I checked the status of my order on Hasbro Pulse, it is listed as "paid".

    I've wanted all those characters since I first watched the bad English dub of the series on crappy bootleg VHS tapes back in the late 90's. I couldn’t afford the vintage G1 originals then and I darn sure can't afford them now. There is nothing I want in Generations more than Japanese G1 characters.

    Holi is the most important Micromaster from Victory and in the Rescue team, so it makes total sense that we'd get him, and he's gang molded with Fire so getting him too makes perfect sense.

    The budget needed to do repaints of existing molds into those characters is far smaller than the extra budget they would need to design/tool two brand new Micromasters, and is made even more unlikely by the fact that as a whole Hasbro doesn't seem to have a ton of faith in Micromasters.

    I'm pretty happy to be getting Holi in the proper colors to be paired with Star Saber, and I understand the budget constraints involved, so I don't see where any issues would be.
