what they should do is release the legitimet lio-convoy. or maybe just rerelease the whole beast wars toyline. the 15th aniversery is comming up and i need a new cybershark
That's impossible, since the basic sized molds are long gone. So no Rattrap and Terrorsaur. And which Cybertron repaints are you finding? If it's a Bruticus, gimme!
So all those basic BW knock-offs with little jogging dinosaurs (including Terrorsaur and Iguanus in their BW Neo Hydrar and Crazybolt colors) sold in places like Value City 6 years ago were the results of their only molds being stolen, or did Takara sell them off due to Beast Wars' unpopularity in Japan? Could that also bode ill for reissues of larger Beast toys that showed up in KO, like LioConvoy, Heinrad, Optimal Optimus and Dragon Megatron? Those are no longer available, but you can still find KOs of smaller Scramble-City team guys, and even complete Protectobot and Constructicon giftsets in Big Lots, so does mean their molds are lost from legitimate hands too?
Back on topic, I already got the white Leo Prime when those Target exclusives went on sale last year, and with the rarer Optimus-colors Leo Prime, I've got at least two Cybertron Optimus arms I've never even taken out of the box yet. That white one's about the coolest possible repaint for that niche of Transfans who are also into the old Soupy Sales show, because with it and Nemesis-Breaker/Black-Ligerjack, you can turn Galaxy Convoy into the guy who wore the gloves for White Fang and Black Tooth! It's a trick to get both arms on that Optimus without damaging him, but everyone figured out how, right?
