    Very doubtful that will happen. When I was at TFCon I asked Aaron Archer if there were any plans years back for Beast Wars II and Neo to be released in the west. His response was, "As far as the show, no, because it was intended for a Japanese-only audience. However, we did get some of the toys such as Magmatron released here, which was about the extent of it."

    I think the only possibility is for Shout-Factory to release them subtitled on DVD. As I've mentioned several times, if we could help speed up that domestic release of II and Neo with the subs we did, we'd be more than happy to. Of course, it all boils down to Shout-Factory acquiring the license and whether the parent company in Japan that has the rights, is willing to lend it out.

    I’m loving the Seacons. Glad to see all six are there.

    The Seacons seem very Siege/WFC friendly. Lots of sculpted detail on the new parts, and Siege styled 5mm weapon ports scattered about each figure.

    Can't wait to get them.

    Why does it need to be a “US cartoon”? Heck what does that even mean?

    Wow. It would be good to have it be a u.s. cartoon. That is what it means.

    I think it means they should be dubbed.

    A tiny part of me is starting to suspect they may have, it's the hardest major Prime to update and it's not like HasTak's non-G1 track record is all that great.

    I\'m surprised the cost and release date of Masterpiece Lio Convoy hasn\'t been revealed yet.

    What is the translucent optimus? It looks like a world's smallest translucent movie optimus.

    Beast Wars and movie beg to differ. Also, he isn't very difficult to update. Just give him a *not* shit trailer and some hips.

    Okay so do you mean a dub? I’m just lost on what you’re referring to here. Like how can you take an anime and make it into a US cartoon. I’m just not seeing the connection. Unless you do mean dub then I understand.

    Yeah but you have to completely redesign the trailer in order to make the legs y'know, move.
