    And us not knowing if that Omega Guardian repaint is selects or Shattered Glass (or something else I guess).

    Transformers Legacy Line Revealed

    It's a straight swap - a better proportioned robot mode for a much (much) worse vehicle mode. It's a shame. I can't even work out why the front/feet stick out like dumpy trainers glued to the front rather than folding more inwards and being shaped in a more pointy fashion, which would help a...

    Yes, I meant the coneheads tbh. The seekers have actually had a reissue I think already. But there's just some obvious easy wins that baffle me - Siege Skywarp, the coneheads, the Ironhide/Prowl pack, Netflix Soundwave. Earthrise Megatron's secondary market price has also shot up for a toy that...

    It's very odd that that set can get a reissue but seekers and Prowl/Ironhide set can't when they were underproduced in the first place and are older.

    The CHUG Problem

    I think we had a period when the issues were less stark. The classics/generations era where there were more convincing tyres, superior finishes etc. But we are at a point where the primary improvements are a bit of accuracy and articulation, but against hollowness, finish and getting past those...

    HasLab Victory Saber

    It's been pretty obvious for a while that some kind of edict has come down to try and save money by trying to crush all sprue sizes to a standard size, which is resulting in some bizarre decisions about the plastic colour items are cast in aside from the needs for different types of plastic...

    I have Cyclonus in hand. Tolerances aren't as good as the Kingdom version but it's not a disaster. Won't be applying the stickers. Stickers look awful. He's suitably dark in hand but I think he might be a shade more plum than the original toy (granted, just off the top of my head, I haven't dug...

    HasLab Victory Saber

    I imagine the main third party accessories will be fillers for Leo's cannons and biceps, and covers for the inside of Saber's arms. Which it's a bit annoying is required in such an expensive toy tbh.

    I think this nominally looks better but... I passed on the original unless it hits steep discount, and it's starting to (I've even seen a UK chain clearing him out at £8.99 already on FB). So there's no way I'd pay an exclusive markup for a bit of camo pattern. I suspect this and Springer...

    Catila from Cheetor (or Ravage)?

    No. There's maybe one panel in Target 2006 where he's got grey shoulders, but that's fairly obviously a colouring error or creative use of shading (Broadside, stood next to him, is entirely grey). Even in his early appearances and UK appearances Springer was mostly green with some yellow...

    Studio Series 2022 First Look

    It's a shame to lose the thighs making part of the alt mode that made her feel like more of a transformer, but it still looks better than the Earthrise toy. What does Takara have against transforming this toy correctly by folding the fenders in.

    It would have been amazing to get a Xaaron build a figure with these but I guess it would have been mentioned if it were happening.

    You missed one of the deluxes , so imagine it'll be two more $45 deluxe two packs and three standalone Voyagers (but that doesn't fit the number of boxes and sizes left so who knows?).
