Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 June 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

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)

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)

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)

@  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.

So sick of horrible distribution. And crappy movie toys making it worse. Or in these cases, canceling / postponing / TJ Maxx-ifying good toys.

We'll probably see them at Botcon, but it'd be cool if they showed up sooner.

I will chuckle endlessly if the fan-made figure is one destined to never be released, or at least in the US.

 

After seven years of this happening, you'd think Hasbro would know to make the last wave completely a refresher case by now.

After seven years of this happening, you'd think Hasbro would know to make the last wave completely a refresher case by now.

 

I think the final wave of Beast Hunters deluxes (AKA the upsized Legions that only a handful of people seem to actually want) indicates that Hasbro has learned not to put anything incredibly desirable in the final wave of a line.

 

I think the problem might be that someone underestimated how long it would take these figures to hit retail.  We're looking at essentially three waves' worth of product (Rattrap/Tankor/Crosscut, Arcee/Chromia, and Windblade/Nightbeat/Jhiaxus) that really should have been part of the big Dark Cybertron comic/figure push, but won't be thanks to AOE eating all the Generations slots for a while.

Wouldnt it make sense to just save all the molds from these two waves and release them after the movie crap ends? That way they didn't waste all that money on creating these toys for nothing?

That would appear to be the plan! But since we don't know precisely when "after the movie crap ends" is, everybody is assuming it is "never ever in any form no matter what" because that allows the greatest amount of flipping out and raging.

If Windblade can't be released this year, I'd hope that Hasbro could work something out to release a preview release of it at Toys R Us or Hasbro Toy Shop. The figures are possibly manufactured already, but it'd be nice if they could squeeze out a jazzed up special release deco withmore paint apps for such a release. Just wishful thinking on my part, though.

 

It's gonna be really odd if most of the 30th anniversary figures are released in 2013 and 2015 and not 2014.

Yup.  And the leftover alternate heads that were never touched, like Hardhead and Lugnut's extra.  I wouldn't bet on Crosscut ever showing up again, at least at retail.  Probably not Chromia either.

 

This is sure to be brought up at Botcon and I wonder if they'll even be aware of this stuff happening as they are rarely aware of true distribution issues.

Someone should bring up WIndblade at least, what with the whole comic mini-series tie-in to something that won't be happening.

Oh wow, this sucks. Crossing my fingers that these really do eventually come out at regular domestic retail in the end (and aren't relegated to some "good enough" release at Ross/TJMaxx/etc.)
Also I wonder what this means for Swerve, Cosmos, and Tailgate? They won't exactly fit on the shelves with all that movie stuff.

To echo Shadoman, yeah looks like all the money I would have spent on Hasbro's Generations product is going towards Takara's Ultra Magnus instead!

Still looking for Titans Return Nautica! And Combiner Hunters Chromia! (and the Arcee from the set too tbh)
If anyone can help me out plz pm me!

My Amazon wish list~! http://a.co/8fG2lMF
