I can't imagine they wouldn't. Has there been any MP announced since Pulse launched that wasn't?
If they do chug line, I wonder if it’ll be another 18inch combiner, like devastator and predaking, or a new edited combiner like the rumored menasor
I am now waiting for Black Zarak to be the size of Earthrise Cliffjumper.
again this image has no basis in official sources whatsover. its another fan created scale chart. and its two different continuities ( later retconned by JPN to be one yes but orginally never intended ) There is nothing to suggest Brave Maximus is this size compared to the g1 guys
Yup. There's an error in that image indeed. Before Legends, Metroflex is around the height of Fortmax's knees. In Legends, Metroflex is now the same height as G1 Fortmax. As for Brave, smallest headmaster (Zebres?) is the size of, lets say a standard big bot like Optimus Prime(G1). So when it transforms into "Master", not mass shifting like Fortress, is indeed in a more gargantuan scale. Then mix that with a dose of time travel, he becomes the inspiration of Fortress, millions of years in the past, to create the "master" technology of head, target, breast and brainmaster tech.
So far as I know, not only has Hasbro Pulse consistently sold all of the TT MPs in recent history, but they DO offer "the best price" (meaning it's essentially identical to what you'd have paid if you were buying it in Japan). You're not going to find any other dealer sell these toys for cheaper unless you're waiting for clearance sales much later after they've been released.
Nope. Can’t agree with the statement that HP is the “best” price or the same as what you pay if buying from Japan. In the rare instance that an MP is a TakaraMall exclusive where everyone has to pay full retail price, HP is the same as everyone else. Even then, you can still find it a few bucks cheap elsewhere. In the case of a wide release, most of us import it from Amazon Japan at near 30% off retail. For example: MP Arcee is $150 at HP, most of us got her delivered at Under $100. HP’s prices are just the basic retail amount. As to why they sellout,... if they always order the minimum of 1500 units, it’s easy to sell out and they give free shipping.
That's not correct, they didn't sell mp-44 and their prices are often the same as other domestic sellers, a far cry from the Japanese price. The onlyl prices that end up cheaper sometimes is mall exclusives as it looks like brand unification has allowed them to exert some influence over domestic pricing.
Once you factor in shipping, Pulse can be close to import price. I think Skids was only a few dollars difference between importing and Pulse. Of course, location would affect that.
Still even with amazon charging tax now both skids and reboost are 150 shipped versus the 180 plus tax from pulse, but yeah shipping is the big elephant in the room, hopefully once it opens back up we can get some relief.
So not an exact confirmation, but based on this exchange I had with someone on Twitter who has read the interview in the Generations mook with Ohno, it seems that Raiden will be released one at a time
Makes sense. Only time I've seen MP Combiners released in box sets were repaints.
If they’re chug scale I’m in.
These are supposed to be MP.
The million dollar question is, what is their goal time for total release? Would they aim for full release during the year or ar they stretching it out over 2022 and 2023. The reveal of Skfire and maybe another MP popping up makes me think they would spread the releases ,on the other hand Takara isnt a 3p shadow company and would want to release everything in a timely manner.
Kaen will be delivered to you on your death bed.
Oh, cool. So the rest of us only have to wait another week. That's sad for jackisking, though.
Uhm I would have liked more a gifted, I'm not a great fan of buying the individual members before knowing how the combined form will turn out to be, and if I decide to wait, by the time the last member is out the previous ones might be hard to find.
That won't leave me much time to combine him into Raiden
