Kinda neat that they're releasing Mainframe as Teletraan, but the other two are duds. We're getting a new commander OP after all. And even before then ER OP was all over the place and even that was only marginally better than Siege.

I mean, we all love G1 Prime, but maybe hold off on him a bit before releasing a big Commander Class version?

Jazz AGAIN? I would have done Prime, ER Prowl and either that Mainframe or maybe Sideswipe, since Sunstreaker just got rereleased in the 5-pack.

This is a Japanese set, they didn't get the 5 pack (yet) or the new rerelease of Prime (pretty sure Kingdom was their last release) so this is a big deal for them.

Interesting, I'll likely pick this up for mainframe and jazz. Not sure if mainframe will include the discs though but it's still better than buying the ark. Not too sure if prime will be a keeper or not.

For most of us in the west that's probably true, but for those in Japan this might be a good deal. The current aftermarket price for SS Jazz over there is 6,000JPY or $38USD and nobody has a Mainframe in correct colors (without customizing one). Plus prime is in cartoon colors, which we shockingly haven't gotten from that mold yet anywhere. Only other recent Generations OP figures we have in cartoon colors the Core figure with the trailer and Bumblebee and the 35th anniversary Siege figure. I intend to get this set mainly for Optimus and Mainframe. Though Jazz looks like he's basically the SS figure with the 5 pack's deco (minus the windows) so he might actually be a better figure than what we've gotten previously. We'll have a better look Tuesday.

Also strange that we've gotten the Jazz mold 4 times as Jazz, once as Jackpot and at least once as Knock-Out, but not as Stepper/Ricochet.

Also looks like the Golden Disk accessories originally stored inside Teletraan have been omitted.

Takara Reveals Non Exclusive Dramatic Capture Series Autobot 3-pack

Postby william-james88 » Tue Jun 04, 2024 12:13 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
We have official pics of the second set from the Dramatic Capture Series, which has Mainframe, Jazz and Optimus Prime in his cartoon accurate white crotch deco. This is not an exclusive set, meaning that it can be purchased from any Japanese retailer. It can also be imported to Hasbro Pulse, though it is not on their site yet.

Click below to get to Amazon Japan's page where you can preorder it.

This could go on sale and I’d still skip it, but that Optimus Prime looks incredibly good. All blue lower legs, white upper legs & waist, and it’s weird that an G1 OP would ever have anything other than blue hands…
This has me even more anxious to see the CC figure.

I already repainted my OP (I switched the white to silver though) & reprolabeled my Jazz to look as good (or even better) than this set's counterparts. So I'm just gonna repaint my Mainframe from the Ark to this version's colors, TYVM.

It's too bad that the alt mode is the wrong size for ANY class... too big for Legends/Core class, too small for Deluxe/Voyager/Leader/Commander. The only figures that sort of work are post-Siege Minibots like Bee/Brawn.

Y'know, somehow I just KNEW they'd end up rereleasing Mainframe in colours more accurate to his OG toy. Honestly that alone sells this for me, but it'd have to be sold at a bargain heh.
