I thought kreo was dead. You dont see them in stores anymore. The shelves they use to warm are now being warmed by constructobots. When will hasbro learn todays kids dont want to build crap ? They want the real figures not lego and erector sets.

This is TakaraTomy and Japan we're talking here. Not Hasbro. but I know you're going to ignore that for whatever reason anyway.

I missed that. But honestly Im surprised. Usually dumbed down TF toys are geared towards the "western market". Takara usually makes nothing but the good stuff. I wonder if they'll end up with constructobots as well ?

Actually, TakaraTomy releases just about anything Hasbro has after some tweaking. So yes, we can expect Construct-Bots over there and the "dumbed down" TF toys for the new movie. They have kids there too, you know?

Even robot heroes and rescue bots. I always assumed their kids stuff was kaybaya figures and arms microns in coin operated candy machines. In other words, stuff that adults like too. Just my guess from what i see on these front page stories...

I said "just about". I could see Rescue Bots being imported for the heck of it though :lol: All in all, despite having a larger portfolio of lines especially for us collectors (like Bandai does), TakaraTomy is still a toy company and Hasbro's analog in Japan, thus they're paying at least as much attention to kids as Hasbro does.

Back on topic, I'm a bit surprised nobody said anything about the gator resembling Skullcruncher a bit with the window in its head.

The whole comic is based on the G1 episode City of Steel where the Decepticons turn Prime's body into an Alligatorcon. The last panel even shows Prime's severed arm firing at random.

It doesn't appear to be intentional, but Megatron just looks less "Animated" in the first panel he appears, when compared to the last. But it could be just the art. >:oP

Also, the middle panel is a homage to this:

I'm not sure what exactly Megatron's ultimate plan was, but I'm guessing it's far more ambitious than his Decepticons can handle.


Is Japan being weaponized/fortified a reference to something? Seemingly every other thing is.


EDIT: Love how Waspinator is in pieces at the end!

Good catch. That homages a manga issue from TV Magazine.

I remember looking up clips from the English Headmasters dub, and saw a clip of Galvatron transforming into a planet and declaring, "I am Unicorn!" I sort of want to know what is up with Grand Galvatron now.

Grand Galvatron was to have been the ultimate result of Galvatron's long term master plan for the middle arc of the Headmasters cartoon. Throughout the midway point of the show, the Decepticons had been conducting a long term campaign of raiding planet after planet for their energy resources, with Galvatron keeping the true purpose of all this energy looting a secret. Eventually, though, his plans came to light when his confided his true plan with Sixshot: He was going to use all the harvested energy to reconstruct the planet Earth into a gigantic new body for himself called "Grand Galvatron", and become ruler of the universe. Though, this plan to incorporate the Earth into Galvatron's systems had one small detail that did not sit well with Sixshot: In order for Galvatron to complete this goal, he would also require that some parts from the bodies of the best of the best Decepticons (which included Sixshot) be integrated into Galvatron to compensate for any weaknesses he'd have.

Though, this plan never came to fruition since Galvatron was killed in battle before the plan could be set in motion.
