I'm still under the impression that John Warden wants to make a Hasbro-released Star Saber.

Of so, can they make it into the Deluxe-sized master version of Cyclonus that we should have gotten?

Why would cyclonus be a deluxe?

Anyways, Sonic Bomber is taken from Misfire


Oh jeez!!! I couldn't even tell! I do see it now... But only in the shoulders...

Anyhow, Deluxe because ALL of the other Target master characters in Titans Return were Deluxe, and I would like a matching set.



Then go online and get the CHUG Cyclonus that came out ten years ago. It’s been released a half a dozen times

I have that one about three times, myself. But it still doesn't match the others as it isn't a headmaster titanmaster.

I am s very excited for these, and I don't know why. Their vehicle modes arent even anything and outside of IDW Dai Atlas I have zero attachment to any of the charters. And that 150+ estimated cost is steep (worth it for what it is, just steep).

Pics are up of the whole package, robot mode and vehicle mode. And what do I do?! Look at the Headmasters, and they're not based on their Micromaster partners it looks like :shock:

Of note is that the Dai Atlas Headmaster confirms him to be based on the Sky Shadow version of the tooling, not Overlord as he uses the Ominus parts, not the Dreadnaut ones.

Oh my god this set looks beautiful :shock: Now if only I could afford it :-( Oh well, if it shows up on BBTS, I'll check the price there and see if that might be easier to stomach. But seriouly, this set looks amazing and I'd love to have it despite me never personally having had a connection to these characters

WOW, this is the must-have set I didn't even know I needed a month ago!

And as perfect as the OverShadow mold turns out to be for Dai Atlas, this makes him the third character I can hear screaming at me in unison: "How has this mold STILL not been retooled into Thunderwing?!?"

You need to ship it to a japanese adress. but there are shipping forwArding services out there in Japan that let you ship to them and then they ship it to you.

Emerje can tell you more about that.

Mayhaps a good time to recycle the name Roadburn if it ever came to that.

william-james88 wrote:Emerje can tell you more about that.

Sure, but the shipping and fees would be so high on a set this big and the impact on the order numbers so low that I wouldn't recommend it. I won't be doing it, I'll be sticking with TFSource.

But I'm not seeing anything on the order page about an order minimum needing to be placed before these are produced, where is this stated? Instead I see a spot that says a limited number is being produced and sales will end when the number is reached. "This item has limited quantity. If it reaches sales reserve number, sales may end before the due date." Sounds like production is a sure thing to me.

BBTS should be a safe bet, I'm pretty sure all the LG-EX release have shown up there. That's where I'm looking out for it.

The quote comes directly from TFW's front page:

Big Powered is scheduled for release in March of 2019 and will run 15,000 yen. According to a fast Google translation, if this set does not get a minimum number of pre-orders it may be cancelled


But now i am pretty sure it was a misinterpretation of that statement. So its all good.

And as TF Fan Kev said, this is up on BBTS.

These are always a bit trickier for me since it gets very pricey for me to buy from an importer. I usually wait until they show up on the secondary Japanese market and buy them there to offset the cost. I end up paying as much as if I was an american buying from BBTS, but it takes a while.

I do not
The little guys are the characters' real selves in Japan, not separate-character partners. In this case, Dai Atlas and co. are the small guys while the larger ones are just lifeless bodies they control.

It wouldn't make sense for the little guys to look like Speeder, Sonic, and Drillbuster when they're supposed to be Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Roadfire themselves.
