Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

*nevermind*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

Nobody is getting that.

@  Bass X0 : (26 June 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Anyone getting the SNES Classic with StarFox 2?

Preorders just got posted at BBTS...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

@  Dekafox : (26 June 2017 - 07:10 AM)

With explosions instead of pouches and pockets.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2017 - 02:45 AM)

Michael Bay is the Rob Liefeld of the movie industry.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 June 2017 - 02:25 AM)

I took a mega-deuce once. It was quite the epic battle.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 June 2017 - 02:01 AM)

Now if we could explode Justin Bieber, I might pay to watch it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 June 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Bieber isn't nearly as over-the-top as explosions director.

@  Bass X0 : (25 June 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Michael Bay is Justin Bieber of the movie industry- everyone makes fun out of his over- the- top -style but he keeps pulling in huge amounts of money

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 07:10 PM)

Ah.

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 07:07 PM)

It's pronounced like Megadeus

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 06:59 PM)

Is the "Zeus" pronounced like "Zoose" or "Zayus?"

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

sorry I saw the name and just got excited

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

NITRO ZEUS

@  Paladin : (25 June 2017 - 06:57 AM)

nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

I thought I had seen it on amiami or 1999.co.jp but it doesn't seem to be available in either place. Not on HLJ either. Not even listed.

 

It's possible agesthreeandup's preorder was an error, especially if even the Japanese places don't list it.

Is it a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive? If so that might explain the difficulty in finding preorders.

That does explain it. I guess I'll just have to watch for it to become available. It shouldn't be any harder to get than Cloud Brawn was, right?

Couldn't pick up a Diabattles, as had room to bring one big box back from Japan, and Gingaioh was just too much of a bargain...

The Dia-nauts seem to be enjoying their new hangout just fine, though!

Yeah, the CG artwork for the Powered Suits shows stuff like missile pods and different guns, so hopefully that's what it's going to be. I was wondering where all that came from.

Well, that sure is Big Powered. It seems to be even more of a faithful adaptation than Diabattles.

 

Also, while searching for Wonderfest news I found this image from last year and I'd apparently completely overlooked this APC shown last year. (Cosmo Roller maybe?)

Yeah, sorry about that.  I confused the names in my original post.

 

 It's a lot easier to find info. on Dia-battles.  For some reason, not so much English stuff on Big Powered.

Yeah there are way more resources out there in Japanese for Diaclone stuff. I will say that Chrome's Japanese-to-English has improved a lot lately.

 

This might also help you out although the text is minimal

Features new Battles 02 connection joint, 'chrome silver' paint, a Road Viper in the same paint and new dia-naut colours.
 
 
.....but most of all, it means I can finally get a Diabattles!!
 
Also, the second pair of powered suits are also getting the 'Cosmo Marines' treatment, though without the new accessories that come with the regular releases:
