@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

I think this came up in another thread, but.. anyone have a good reference between price at BBTS for these and the size category? Maybe some kind soul would even care to make a sorted list based on such.

Ideally, I'd love to get a whole set. At eight bucks a pop though, with twelve figs, that's not a small investment.

Eh, at least the non-minicon Prime stuff is likely to see release in the US. I'd wager we'll get the Vehicon Jets, etc.

Same here, which is why I wanna know what I'd be ordering. Sure, I could cancel pre-orders, but placing em all then canceling some will be a pain.

Here's hoping that for the price of each Micron they come painted this time. I don't mind assembling them myself, it sounds kinda fun actually, but if they're priced as Legions then they had better have SOME kind of paint on them.

I don't think they will be painted. at $8 a piece, they are the price of an American legion-class figure. Factor in BBTS having shipping from overseas and the subsequent markup for profit, they are probably around the equivalent of $4-5 in Japan. At that price, I wouldn't expect much, if any, paint apps.

I'm excited as hell that the arms microns are getting individual releases. The figure sets were too expensive, in general, and I already had the PRID versions of most of them. I love targetmasters and am definitely interested in these. I preordered one of each and may cancel a few depending on the final pictures. There's too much up in the air to know right now.

I also preordered a Jet Vehicon, Ironhide, and Airrachnid. Just in case they get cut from the tail end of the 2012 assortments (like Soundwave and Wheeljack from DoTM).

They might be painted. The legion figures from Japan are going for about the same price on BBTS as it is.

Hopefully, there'll be pictures soon. And what is this "Darkness Megatron"? Seems to be the same price as Gaia Unicron.

I'll be surprised if its anything more than a black and purple "Dark Energon" repaint of Weaponizer Megs.
