Trying to be sarcastic on a forum (without obvious cues) is like trying to find a black cat in a dark room when there is no cat present. In short, no one knows for sure if you are "sarcastic" without something like "/sarcasm." But I digress...

Damn it damn it damn it!

Just when I thought I was basically done with new items.
Damn you Takara and your GT inspired product that melts my wallet.

I wish someone there would ask if they were planning any other molds.
The GTR is my least favorite of the GTs... But... can't resist...

It is definite that Star Saber is going to be the one in blue. And that Optimus Prime (not Convoy) is going to be the one in red. But Fortress Maximus gets green? Call me conflicted on this one. However, I did say that if any I wanted were to pop up... I would get him.

Star Saber is confirmed, and he is one I definitely want on account that he is my favorite Supreme Commander. 8) Fortress Maximus is a maybe on account that I do like the shade of green used for him, but I need to see a better picture of him. :-? And Optimus Prime is a maybe on account that I like his partner/mascot and shade of red. :lol:

But also, you call that a dance? This is what I did when I heard the news about Star Saber getting this kind of treatment. :lol:

Heh... I feel for ya! I spent weeks seeking out my 12th Transformer (as I am buying what I feel willhave a long-term hold for me), and end up pre-ordering Fortress Maximus. Then I decide to go frugal and skip this line by deciding that I will pre-order "Arms Micron" Wildrider. And much like a bad horror movie monster, they do this. :sad:

I feel sad for my budget because they added one that is a definite, and another that is a maybe for me. :sad:

While I appreciate the new head, I do think Star Saber should be more white than blue and he needs to come with a sword. I just don't see Fort Max in that white and green scheme at all. Besides the fin is there any more retooling being done as the cars don't look like the original Alternity Prime at all; or it could just be me.

At first, I was "meh" on what appeared to be just a lazy repaint/retool of Alternity Optimus Prime. Ad a spoiler and stickers and we're done! I already have the original so why should I bother?

Then, the recent images show a completely different vehicle mode for the OP Alternity mold. Now THAT'S what I call heavy retooling.

I may not buy Optimus Prime, but I may just consider one of the other ones. Maybe Star Saber.

Not sure if this means anything to anybody, but the image for the green one just says 'Maximus' no fortress.

I'm probably just picking at details, no doubt it's meant to be some kind of representation of the character, but wondered if it was important it's not EXACTLY being sold of as 'Fort Max.' At least in name. Who knows what the bio says ;)

I wonder if they'll include a tiny fig of those anime race queens depicted on the back of the box? It might justify the price hike; just barely, though.

I wouldn't count on it. The price hike may be caused by the amount of sponsors on the car, which would require licensing.

although you're probably right, it's a bit silly that TT would have to pay to let other companies advertise on their toys.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

More like "use their company logos on their product for the purpose of accuracy".

Right, but it also has an image of Fortress Maximus in the inset. I'm curious why he's green though, reminds more of DOTM Roadbuster than anything else.

Nope. The profile shown along with an image states that it is Fortress Maximus. And interesting enough, not only does that add to my conflict but does the fact that I kinda like what I read when it comes to the team. :???:
