I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

Even we have limits.

Anybody knew about this before?

I thin those big over-the-shoulder cannons are new.

Yep. It's going to be released in March and I have mine preordered on BBTS

 

The Cosmo Maneuver type is the same as Diabattles V2, except Battles-02 is replaced with Cosmo Battles-02, which has the huge cannons and added engines. Also I think the head sculpt is slightly different.

 

Takara is releasing Cosmo Battles both as a standalone craft (in V2 colors) and as part of that full recolor of V2. Ages Three And Up has the single-release Cosmo Battles-02 for preorder - not sure if anyone else does yet. 

 

Also here's a rundown of everything that's known for release in the Diaclone line, as far as I know (I've been a little obsessed with it lately):

 

RELEASED

DA-01 Diabattles V2

DA-01-EX Diabattles V2 (Gray/yellow lunar base prototype colors)

DA-02 Powered Suit System A Type (red suit with raid chamber and one pilot)

DA-03 Powered Suit System B Type (blue suit with raid chamber and one pilot)

DA-04 Diaclone Pilot Set (eight pilots in blue/gray colors)

 

UNRELEASED

DA-05 Powered Suit System Cosmo Marine Version (Powered Suit A/B set in gray/green military colors) - FEB 2017

DA-06 Diabattles V2 Cosmo Maneuver Type - MARCH 2017

DA-07 Cosmo Battles-02 - 2ND QUARTER 2017

 

SHOWN, NOT YET SOLICITED

Powered Suit System C-Type (construction version, yellow colors)

Powered Suit System D-Type (drill version, dark blue colors)

both above shown in photos and named in paperwork included with DA-02/03

Big Powered GV (large mecha which interacts with Powered Suits)

above shown only in concept artwork seen at Wonderfest 2016

 

Some other items have been seen at various Japanese toy shows, but I believe all of these were artist-made customs intended as concepts only. Like there was a large troop-carrier type vehicle that could stow Powered Suits.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Looks like the head sculpt just has an added visor.

 

Wait, did the shoulder rails of Battles-01 always open up in the front like that? I had no idea!

 

The shoulder guns on Cosmo-02 have flip-out arms in back. And it looks like the boost packs on the wings are shoulder-joint compatible. This pleases me. The possibilities are absolutely juicy.

 

Those little weapon handle pods stored on the sides of Cosmo-02's cockpit are nice too, lets you wield the extra cannon attachments like handguns.

 

I'm so happy they're putting just Cosmo-02 out as an expansion set for DA-01. It'll be a nice addition.

I also noticed with this set of pics that the standard Freezon cannons can evidently attach to the nose of Cosmo Battles-02, and it looks like the two new engines have same-sized ports where they could go as well. Cool!

Yeah, that's what I was pointing out. Those bits on Cosmo-02's nose come off and can be held as pistol grips for the cannons.

And I just noticed the connector that hitches a raid chamber to Cosmo-02's cockpit can stow in Battles-03's trunk instead of the Road Viper. Because when you're out in deep space, you can't go back for your trailer hitch so easily, and a motorcycle won't do you much good anyway.
