    Each component would be deluxe sized and has all the same modes and combinations as the original G1 toy; only larger, more detailed and much more articulation,

    Although they wouldn’t look exactly the same obviously, I think a US release should characterise the six as Mini-Bots Brawn, Gears, Windcharger, Cosmos, Seaspray and Powerglide. Yes, Cosmos would now be a blue and white space shuttle instead of a green flying saucer but it still works. Many Transformers change alternate mode and color scheme. When two of them combine, their name is the guy on top with a Powerlinx prefix. So Brawn and Windcharger would combine to form Powerlinx Brawn or Powerlinx Windcharger.

    I'd love to see more Victory characters, and Landcross would be a great pick!

    I had to Google “Landcross” to see what you are all talking about. And, I think I’d rather see Raiden first.

    But yes, a new CHUG update would be a small Victory.

    Zeta Toys is doing an MP scaled version.
    Zeta Toys Moonwalker (Raiden)

    Do the fact that they are all probably going to be voyagers in size, I’d say that makes the better then any CHUG Raiden we might ever get.

    Roadceasar before Landcross!

    Although I want Raiden and a better Liokaiser before Roadceasar.

    Yeah, they would obviously have their Japanese names in Japan but they’re too simple for America; Dash, Wing, Mach, Tackle, Tacker and Waver for the individuals. They would have to be renamed.

    I’d prefer they were scout sized like the Battletrap pair. Those figures are one step away from being Landcross comparable.

    I see what you did there.

    "Better" is subjective. It will certainly be more detailed and complex. But I personally prefer something less complicated and more sturdy. MP (official and 3P) tend to be too overly complex and fragile for my liking.

    My assumption was any sort of updated Landcross would use Legends figures...with Battletrap and Skytread being the basis for how they form their intermediate combined modes before using those connections in service to the bigger combiner.

    I mean I barely know who Landcross is, so whatever, but I'd happily take a Micromaster combiner.

    I can understand that. I’m not much of an MP or 3P person myself. But I just don’t see us getting a Raiden that doesn’t have some compromises like Hasbro’s CW Devastator had.

    Yes, but keep them as-is rather than shoehorn in the G1 Minibots.

    And since it's topical, gimme Raiden too pretty please.
