Cheers. Good morning, Burn. You're two hours' of potential caffine ahead of me, Sir.


Once again you assume incorrectly about me. >:oP

Maybe you got the date wrong? Because I got an e-mail from HLJ yesterday for the Clones.


Woops. :oops:

The official release date seems to be more like a date when you're supposed to find them in B&M stores, whereas online stores seemingly ships them out earlier.


Thats weird because as far as I have searched and asked, these toys are not sold at B&B retail

I think jelze means b&m in japan, but, of course if that's what you meant, and TT doesn't sell their toys at b&m in japan at all, then it would make sense that they're hemorrhaging money and need to borrow the potp figures from hasbro :lol:

Honestly, if they're being shipped out early, these people probably paid to have it over-nighted to them, or they know people

I cannot state if the latest figures are available, but previous figures in the Legends like are available at Yodabashi Camera (I think, I always get the shop names mixed up). I posted this picture, showing them for sale (to children of any age), next to regular TFs several weeks ago.

I haven't, as yet, seen them for sale in any other children's toy departments or Toys R Us, though.

I just got my AmazonJP preorder notification for G2 Megs.
It has an estimated date for US shipping of, "Arriving Feb 28 - Mar 3".
Either way, in a week and change, he should be in hand!

I think it's the Targetmaster that came with Windbag.

Anyway, guess what came in the post, about an hour ago?

Answers are here!

http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/th ... 934321.php

Google Translated Bios:

Wingspan and Pounce
These twin Clonetrons, split from their Clonebot brethren to fulfill their ambitions with the Decepticons. Wingspan transforms into a condor and takes aim at prey from the sky, while Pounce transforms into a Jaguar and persistently tracks enemies on the ground.


Windblade
Windblade has the power to shake whole worlds. Her decisions affect the fate of all Transformers; Survival or death, are insignificant in her quest for justice. Her evolution into a Headmaster and Targetmaster makes her a deadly foe.


G2 Megatron
Megatron generated a new Transtector body for himself and is now a Headmaster. Megatron can use his new triple-changing ability to turn into both a robot, tank and jet fighter to bring fear to his enemies, showing that he's truly an Emperor of Destruction! His partner, "Noble", who quietly follows him, has a mysterious existence.


I've used a few liberties, also due to my poor Japanese skills...

It's Beast Megatron, though, so I imagine if the story is anything like that then the purple would just happen to look like G2 Megatron by accident.

There's no mention of him being BW Megatron in his bio. The only reference in the bio is to "Noble". The comic translation might be a different matter.

As for me, he's Archforce. In my head-cannon, Archforce and Megastorm are two brothers and clones of Megatron (made at the same facility that made Megaplex, Reverse Convoy, etc). They both go on to become BW Galvatron and Gigastorm respectively...

There was an extra piece of paper that came with the clone bots. Basically, it said that the (final) robot modes for Pounce/Wingspan were mixed up with each other in the original instructions, so users should refer to the new sheet instead.

New Doc 148_1.jpg


For most of us, this isn't really a problem, though.

(META - That's interesting; files previously attached to one thread can't be linked to at a different thread, even though they are being hosted at the same site. Surely that creates delicate files and increases bandwidth?)

I used [ url ] and [ / url] tags to make it work.

I'm not sure if they know.
