Unfortunately, given their obscurity and being just outright repaints of Defensor and Bruticus, Guard City and Battle Gaia seem like they would never be remade or, if they did, would be exclusive to some hard-to-get-from japanese event, convention or whatever. Granted, if one really want a Guard City they can always use the upcoming Inferno as a torso and repaint the Defensor limbs.

As for Battle Gaia, like you said, he's just a recolored Bruticus. He's not even made of mix-and-matched limbs/molds of previous Scramble-city combiners, which would at least make for an interesting box set.

Now what I would like to see but is even less likely is a remake of something obscure but pretty unique. Like, say, maybe a Gaiacross remade as a CW-style set? Utterly unlikely but at least more unique than just a recolored Bruticus. Beside we already got Baldigus/Ruination filling in as 'Bruticus 2.0' and he's fine.

Same here -- I checked out one of two TRUs yesterday, one more to go. Mine are good about getting Voyagers and Leaders; not so much on all the other classes.

I would not expect Battle Gaia or Guard City from :HASBRO: , but as stated previously, I would like to see it from :TAKARATOMY: as part of the continuation of the UW line...if that is the plan. Yes I know they did Baldigus, but...having those two to pad out a new UW line would give them time to work in between the newer releases such as Volcanicus, Abominus, Predaking, and whatever *hopeful* plans they have for the other torsos.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I'm now glad that Amazon wouldn't let me cancel the order. I would have been unhappy to overpay for him, but for $25 I'm quite satisfied just with his torso-mode alone. Surprisingly clever transformation, nice ankle tilt feet that can be used with any of the combiners, and Starscream just looks really powerful combined with the Aerialbots. His proportions have sort of an anime-esque exaggeration to them with the ridiculously broad shoulders, but he is not so top-heavy as movie Starscream.


Yes, his torso mode is definitely the best part. How do you feel about his other modes?

What are other people's thoughts on Starscream now that they have him in hand?

Nice Ag! Somebody else mentioned this a page or two back. Can't remember who posted it, or if it was with Vector Prime, but what a sweet little factory error in you all's favor!

That all being said, my PMs came in from HTS today, and no such luck. :(

These little guys are simple, but super cool and fun. I've been all into the Diaclone reboot as of late and their dope little piloted mech suits. These feel like more of that same kind of fun. I'm sure some cross pollination play between the two are in store.

Mine arrived from HTS today as well, but as they are gifts for my boys, I haven't checked them yet.


If there's a Prime Master inside the Shell, its feet are visible between the Shell's legs... And that sounded more wrong than I'd like it to be :oops:
Ah good to know, I'll have the trio tomorrow and I was wondering if there was a way to spot 'em in package. If it seems like I've win the PM lottery I'll take pics pre and after opening them.


Can anyone send us pics about this right now? Ag, could you send us a pic of your toy with the two prime masters. One pic where they are both out and one pic where one is out and the other is in his shell? People have been sending this to us in the news but without pics and that makes it hard to news.
If you have any news, rumours, or hot new sightings to report which you feel should be front paged,
please contact us using this form.

So, was your original order cancelled? I thought either you or Amazon cancelled them, but I might have misread or misunderstood what your were saying in your original post about new orders and being out of stock.

If your original order is still in the system but unfulfilled, I'm guessing you should still be getting it at some point, just maybe not in time for Christmas if that was critical.

seems he is now delayed until January 20th

Damn, that really sucks. Sorry to hear that. They had to have some type of screw up in the warehouse or on their shipment from Hasbro. I pre-order quite a bit from Amazon and they are usually spot on. At first I was thinking the delays were just the mad rush of the holidays. But if yours is delayed until January, that tells me they either didn't get enough product, or a number of them got damaged or shipped incorrectly somehow.

I wish I could, but FedEx has found a reason 3 days in a row to not deliver my package. Should have been here on the 19th. Anyway, if they ever get here and there is a second PM in any of them, you guys will be the second to know. ;)^

Yes, his torso mode is definitely the best part. How do you feel about his other modes?

I've barely had him out of torso mode, because I like him so much that way - he has that some build as Liokaiser/Sky Reign that's really pleasing, and I didn't mention it before, but his back armor is remarkably 'clean' and filled in - that makes it even clearer his combiner mode was the designer's #1 priority.

That said, the jet mode has its faults, but it's... I don't know... cute? I don't know how to describe how I feel about it. It's not good, that's for sure, but I have a couple of Starscreams with very nice jet modes, so I don't feel like there was a void in my life that I needed to fill. It has a pointy nose, it has wings, it accomplishes the task of being a jet. I guess more than anything my complaints would be:

(1) I wish the cockpit were longer and used translucent plastic, because it would look better on the combiner's chest.

(2) I wish the feet folded away differently. As is, he doesn't really rest on a table top normally. Although on the other hand, you can prop him up on his thrusters like a space shuttle, or like the UNSC Sabre from Halo: Reach.

(3) I wish his feet things/guns attached differently. No matter what I do, in jet mode they look goofy and/or they don't stay on.

As far as the robot mode, it kind of grew on me. In the comics, Starscream is a pretty flamboyant, showy bot, who gets his body altered pretty much every time he needs a pick me up, like when Sally and Jane take Susan to get a make over after Steve... Yeah, no one's going to know what I'm talking about. The point is, Screamer changes his design a lot, and I can completely see him deciding one day, "You know what's in? Manga boots. And if they're not in, I'm going to make them in." And then of course that leads down the rabbit hole, because you can't have big stompy boots, without big gauntlets - otherwise Starscream would look like a Weeble, am I right? So his strangely proportioned body looks less to me like a distorted, playskool Starscream, and more like a completely normal Starscream ready to hit the red carpet, up-armored in an outfit that's more outrageous than a Bob Mackie design, but less outrageous than whatever Lady Gaga's going to show up in.

I think the big miss for his robot mode is the combiner feet. In black, they look tacked on and pointless if you attach him to his arms, but I immediately noticed something about it still appealed to me. I eventually realized that with the combiner feet attached to his arms, his profile ends up looking a lot like Cybertron/Galaxy Force Starscream.

Image

I always liked that design, and this achieves the same, imposing silhouette, with more articulation. Plus swords that can be slotted into the nullrays' 5mm holes are easy to come by, too. The big problem, though, is that they are plain, unadorned, black plastic. If they'd been painted to match the figure, they'd look a lot more fun, and if the whole thing had been painted in his Cybertron colors, it would have made a nice non-G1 homage.

not neccesarily. Look at it this way. If you find him before January 20th you can cancel the order. If he ships before then you have one. If he doesnt ship at all, then take it up with Amazon. But if it helps, mine is due the 28th of December. So hopefully yours ships with mine.

Okay, 2 things.

First did you just change you profile name mid-day today? Because I think that caused a glitch in the matrix or something. I was reading all the replies and your new name answered my last post. Then Flashwave replied to yours, but all your messages in the string show the GGG1 name for me despite your last one being from your new name. Weird

Second, you are absolutely justified in being pissed, I sure would. If you pre-order something you expect it to arrive, possibly late, but it should definitely arrive and not flat out be cancelled. A delay of a few days during the holiday crazy shipping season is understandable. A delay of a month over others that are receiving theirs, or a flat out cancellation? Definite justification.

I've never had an issue in the past with them. Good luck.

Also, FYI - someone started a new thread on this very issue and indicated that someone at Amazon told them that Hasbro shorted them. Who knows what the real story is? :HEADHURTS:

Justification: Amazon oversold their Preorders. Sucks, but it happens. Here's whats happening. Lets saybthey got 300 Preorders (way low, i just picked a number at random) the first shipment of Grimlocks was 100 pieces at Warehouse A. Those Grimlocks went tobthe first 100 Pre Orders. Warehouse B in another state is getting 50 more in two days, so the Amazon system, based on algorithm, figures in 4 days those 50 pieces will be accounted for and ready to ship, so it builds an estimated Arrival date for the next 50 PreOrders. Warehouse C is getting an order of 50, but with the holidays its not xpected to arrive until December 29th, so the computer assumes an in stock date of January 2 and so on and so on.

The "January 20th Cancellation Date" is another version of the issue we ran into with Grotusque on TRU. After so long a preorder is assumed by the computer to be stale and unfullfillable. It will ship anything that is waiting for that missing item and move on. It keeps the que from cluttering with junk that they will never get more of, but sometimes PreOrders and stuff they might get more of get lost.

Remember, no one. Makes an infinite stock anymore. Once Hasbro or Bachmann or Mattel makes a run of something thats all there is. Amazon can try to order anything left over,if something is left over, but gone is the age of "Oh yeah I can make more of those for you."

Well arent you just a little ray of sunshine? We dont know that. We dont know how much stock Amazon has coming, and we dont know how many preorders they got.

Nice Ag! Somebody else mentioned this a page or two back. Can't remember who posted it, or if it was with Vector Prime, but what a sweet little factory error in you all's favor!

That all being said, my PMs came in from HTS today, and no such luck. :(

These little guys are simple, but super cool and fun. I've been all into the Diaclone reboot as of late and their dope little piloted mech suits. These feel like more of that same kind of fun. I'm sure some cross pollination play between the two are in store.

Mine arrived from HTS today as well, but as they are gifts for my boys, I haven't checked them yet.


If there's a Prime Master inside the Shell, its feet are visible between the Shell's legs... And that sounded more wrong than I'd like it to be :oops:
Ah good to know, I'll have the trio tomorrow and I was wondering if there was a way to spot 'em in package. If it seems like I've win the PM lottery I'll take pics pre and after opening them.


Can anyone send us pics about this right now? Ag, could you send us a pic of your toy with the two prime masters. One pic where they are both out and one pic where one is out and the other is in his shell? People have been sending this to us in the news but without pics and that makes it hard to news.

Here you go! Sorry, I don't have my studio setup yet at my new house. These are pics with my cell.
