This guy needs to post a teaser image with this figure next to either Protector , classics Hound, Hegemon or hell, classics Sideswipe.
Why would an official TakaraTomy employee post comparison with a third party (A.K.A. "rival") product?Hound and Sideswipe aren't hastak products?
I had one Binaltech, the black and silver one that had a sunstreaker face.
Dead End.Yes I knew his name, but the mold is clearly Sunstreaker.
Is that thing larger than this MP Sideswipe? It had a ton of detail, was heavy as shit and was pretty intense transforming if I remember correctly, sold it as well.
MP Lambor is about the same size as the Binaltech/Alternators toys.Im thinkin he'll be a bit bigger than what I'd like, but I can see how it'd be silly for me to try an merge MP with classics an 3rd parties in the first place, but hey that's me...I'm guessing with the right arrangement he'll fit in with some of them. Maybe...
How big is this Lambor gonna look next to the classics Ive mentioned? If he's too big its automatic pass as I dont collect MPs. I see him as one of Prime's elite so if he's a little tall and beefy thats ok, but if he is like Towering over Protector it aint gonna work.
He's roughly the size of a Voyager.see above
oh yea, I hate his classics mold too. They should make a sunstreaker with a bit more effort involved, screw red alert, what a ripoff. Tracks ok, not too much into them other 'new autobots'. In other words, I aint buyin no friggin Hoist for example if they made a Trailbreaker. The six seekers are bad enough in that regard.
Um... okay? Why bring up Track if it's a different mold? Tracks , Skids, Inferno, Grapple, you know who I'm talkin about. Unless you're saying that Tracks is adifferent car mold altogether, as the others are repaints, with a couple added pieces. Grill, siren lights etc. What Im actually saying is I dont personally care for those Autobots enough to purchase them. I'm more into the 18 members of the Ark (and please dont nitpick what I mean by that). Tracks however is a favorite of mine especially when paired with Blaster. I grew up in that era.
Someone PM this guy and kindly ask for some scale shots.
How does one PM a TakaraTomy employee who isn't even on this forum?I'm assuming the folks who do that sort of marketing read this forum. My comment was more or less a figure of jovial speech.
And just my 2 cents: Is it really possible that Lamborghini wouldnt want this released in the states? That would be a kick in the testicles. I'm starting to realize no matter what I buy in america its just a bootleg compared to japan. Ah well, guess it was like that back in the day if you think about it.
It's not that Lamborghini wouldn't want it in the U.S.; it's if Hasbro feels the license is worth getting or not so they can sell this toy. If Hasbro feels that it's too much effort and money to get the license, then they wouldn't bother. Well that sucks. I see little metal cars for sale all the time at rite-aid, it cant be too hard to get approved? Hasbro didnt make enough money to release one of their best characters? I'm sure TRU will get them eventually. Like I said, US seems to be the trickle down last stop when it comes to some of these releases. Maybe the economy and possible general lack of interest concerning big converting robots has somethin to do with it? I been a transfan my whole life since I was 4 yrs old, so its hard for me to gage other americans interest in this stuff. I hate the bay movies, yet people seem to love them. go figure.
Oh and one more thing. No rubber tires? Boo.
Source?No source other than the guy who mentioned it in this thread. No harm intended. I hope it has big fat smelly rubber tires!! lolthanks for chattin!
