That actually looks a lot better.
So a heavy Siege Prowl retool instead of a heavy Sideswipe retool?
That looks like a heavy Masterpiece Prowl retool to me.
Just think - in 2 years they could do a GI Joe x Transformers for the 35th of the Movie ;P Maybe they will do a Sgt. Slaughter ATV? heck they could do a GI Joe base version of Metroplex/Omega Supreme etc. f they wanted to go so far ;P
I meant as in "what could've been" not "what the customizer used".
Hasbro can collaborate with TV shows too. As suggested in different places, a crossover with Knight Rider/K.I.T.T. (which turns 40 in 2022) is feasible.
Going back to films, Jurassic Park is 30 this year. What a missed opportunity to do a JP Ford Explorer transformer, as well as mix the Dinobots with real dinosaurs! (Imagine Grimlock meeting Rexy for the first time.)
Hasbro needs to do a proper Hasbroverse, not that wild Revolution, where G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. and the Autobots are integrated organically, and likewise for Cobra, V.E.N.O.M. and the Decepticons.
Only for American sellers. Chinese can and do list preorders of any duration.
I can confirm that - chinese sellers post delivery times up to 180 days out. It's crazy & one should never purchase something with that kind of lead time on delivery. Ebay can't intervene til the window closes.
The same reasons Hasbro would never make it are also the same reasons ToyHax would never make the label.
I also can't get over the same forum that can't handle the most minute inaccuracy in their brand telling fans of another brand to be okay with a pretty major change.
Actually I won't for two reasons, 1: I loathe stickers and 2: Toyhax lost my business for the most part with their poor decision to miscolor the siege seeker tailfins, but thank you for pretending to know how I choose to spend my money
I would like to see IDW mix things up next crossover and do toon Joe crossed over with Furman style TFs and toon TFs crossed over with Hama style Joe.
Or just a straight Sunbow story that uses the organic links:
Hector Ramirez appeared across the Sunbow shows. Cobra Commander and Flint and Flint's daughter appeared in S3 of Transformers. Abdul Fakkadi (maybe as a bit less of a stereotype), Lord Chumley, and Cobra-La all seem like crossover threats.
You could fairly neatly do a crossover that spans 1986 through 2005, starting with DIC G.I.Joe and Iron Klaw and SKAR displacing Cobra as Cobra Commander becomes Old Snake even as Ninja Force Flint and G.I.Joe along with Star Brigade form the backbone of Earth Defense Force. I'd position G2 as between S2 and TFTM honestly as it never seemed to be set in 2030 or wherever the Japanese timeline placed it with the characters coming full circle in time for TFTM.
Focus on the alternate history sci-fi-ization of the Joe's world as Autobot City and the EDC are built even as the TFs become more embroiled in earth affairs. With things coming down to 2005 where we have some sense of where the characters wind up.
Maybe frame the whole thing as a nod to "There's No Place Like Springfield" by starting with Shipwreck waking up in the hospital six years after the events of ARAH with memory trouble and getting a recap.
You get the advantage of starting with the worlds already integrated and following the mid-90s toylines rather than doing the heavy lifting of past crossovers that imagined the two interacting as an upset in the two wars. Instead, you'd show how G2 played out as well as the final fates of ARAH Joe and Sparkplug alongside the backdrop of Spike and Carly's relationship solidifying.
No, just like a gun Megatron, Hasbro isn't likely to make a figure they can't sell in as many places as possible. If they won't make a Megatron they can't sell in a few states I highly doubt they'd make a General Lee transformer that would get them an incredible amount of backlash in an entire country
Or Hasbro could produce GI Joe vehicles as well as figures.
Still pissed that I can't get this shit yet. I planned on getting 2 of these. I said it once and I'll say it again screw scalpers and their BS.
Gigawatt will be an Amazon exclusive in UK and Europe?
Well this went off the rails guess I am out.
When do y’all think the October release on pulse will go up for preorder?
According to the press release, October 1st
I'll keep it brief because it's off topic but........ crash and burn. Just bought the Bandai YF-19 Full Set Pack instead. Hoping to get Roy in the future.
Edit: Sorry I forgot to congratulate you on landing a Roy! Nice!
