Thank you for making the choice between PRiD and AM just a little bit harder. Hmmmm... Hasbro blue + TakaraTomy red = two Hasbro weapons, but only one Arms Micron...
Why not just get all three? ;)

Also, when I was on Allspark, I asked Hydra how he'd handle the toy bios of these two with them being FIBRIR when Hasbro's Rumble is blue... and I got this response:
Oh, just wait for it...
;) Color me excited. :-B

And have one be weaponless? :lol: Seriously, putting symmetry in weapons can give me a headache. The ideal solution would be Hasbro releasing Frenzy, or TakaraTomy releasing the Micron as a standalone. Bah, one Hasbro weapon plus a Micron looks so... unbalanced. :SICK:

I ahppen to like the way Thundertron's thing looks. It's one of the few Powerizer weapons that actually looks like a weapon bot ways, plus both wolverine-style claws and decently-sized wrist swords are pretty nice weapons in my book.
We're all just products of our programming... And there always seem to be a few glitches.

Please excuse me while I squee with Joy and dig up my recolor from a few months ago that had the lion repainted as Victory Leo that I posted here first in almost that exact scheme. Assuming this isn't some prank.
EDIT: My original photo. different name and the wing color is different, but I so nailed the general paint scheme.

He actually reminds me more of Cybertron Snarl:

In case you're wondering, there is such thing called a maned wolf :P


:BANG_HEAD:

Really? "Winged Transforming Lion" And we get "That looks like a Zord" and Cyb Snarl... Ya'll should be asahmed,you're about to get punked by a kid who wasn't even born for Vicorty series...

Does no one else in this entire fandom see this?

[/sarcasm]

Anyway, all joking aside, what's the fear with balljoint hips, anyway?

I'm liking Magnus. The Hammer could fold up better, but its the first weapon I like. Meg's is okay, I guess.


Torn on the Rumble and Frenzy. I like 'em, but I must admit I prefer the classics tanks. The Honda Civic alts are an interesting twist though.

What I don't get, why are we calling him Leo Prime? He looks nothing like the BW White Lion, and even the Target Exclusive white lion is closer, albeit not as clean looking: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... ine/17177/

So Rumble is Red? I have both on preorder but only want the red one. Might still get the Hasbro one too, though I don't normally get the blue ones.

Wildrider also looks really cool, but I don't collect the character, so unless Hasbro releases it, it's a definite no.

Because that's what Takara's calling this toy.

Though, I think we've got something closer than any previous suggestions as to what the Thundertron toy most resembles: Murasame Liger. ;)

Plus, TakaraTomy has been shying away from Japanese names for 5 years straight now. So no more Convoys.

United and Alternity (Goldbug, in particular) use G1 characters with Hasbro names.

Just United. Alternity still had Convoy, Bumble, and Cliff, though they bucked the trend with Goldbug.

Hence why I singled out Goldbug. He started the change for this line, but it happened that all post-Goldbug releases were characters that either had the same names for both markets to begin with or lacked a separate name for the other market.
