Aint that the stinking truth.

I still wanna know why Takara canceled them when they were still very popular.
me too. they were absolutely genius financially, so I have no clue why they stopped. Especially after we saw prototype pictures of skids, meg's addon parts, tracks, and smokescreen. It's not expensive to actually make the figures (considering you have the designs for the most part done.) and the amount of resources (plastic and paint) is incredibly small. Then you charge about 5-7 dollars a figure, put them in blind boxed, and have chase figures, you have quite a popular item.

In my honest opinion, best tf line in a long time. (but i think you could already tell by seeing the amount of them including customs and fake "prototypes" i have.)


***also, at the last botcon, there was a guy selling addon parts for megs (which could combine into the cannon thing), the transforming trailer for magnus (pictured by the thread creator), and then a diaclone/movie coloring of the same transforming magnus trailer. (unfortunately, they were rather expensive. $80 for the each trailer, and $50 for meg's addon parts.)
***edit*** Also added some new customs to my post above that im working on with a few buddies of mine.

I would have easily paid $80 for each KO's or not. Wish I would have seen that. Any idea who the vendor was so I can look them up this summer???

(I too would have bought them but i didnt have too much money left and there were still 2 more days of the dealer room :-( .)

i found a link to where you can barely see the megs addon and the corner of the boxed wst magnus.

http://www.seibertron.com/events/fullsi ... &image=105

on the far right middle of the pic, in a bluish box is megs and the addon parts. and that white box that is aprtially cut off in the image is the magnus.

uhm... i didn't catch a name but he was Japanese (I'm almost 100% sure anyway) and he had a pony tail. I recognized him from previous years too, so it seems he is a frequent visitor of the conventions. He had about 2-3 other people with him, one was american, had glasses and translated alittle less than half the time.

sorry those are the only clues i can give.... i might be able to find an image in the last convention's gallery or previous years (back in chicago).

edit: was not able to find a picture with the guy in it. and it seems that otfcc 2004's pictures are gone too
