Got Breakdown and Vehicon preordered. Don't carw about Megatron Darkness, er, "Hades Megatron".

Of all the Takara-only Prime Megatrons to choose from, they had to go and pick the ugliest, most gaudy one of them all.

Final Battle Megatron would have been more ideal.

We do know. This is a straight rerelease of the original AM Brakdown toy so there won't be a Silas. Also, I gave you a news credit on this news since you asked in the other thread :)

This would have been an AMAZING opportunity to give us something we never got: an actual accurate Megatron figure. Somethng we never got. This AM 31 is really not good (the pics make his face seem bearable, but it isn't people buying it not knowing more about this toy will be dissapointed, it does not fit well within a collection). I only own it because I got it for that price at the time and that was a deal too good to pass up (at the time). The Hasbro version was a totally wrong pale deco and while the Final Battle one has the best deco for the voyager size, it does have that differently coloured arm which only fits with a specific part of the show.

Surprised to see you post this, Sabrblade. Personally, I'm very excited about Hades Megatron, even though I have the Arms Micron version. It's been long enough that an excusse to buy that amazing toy again is AOK with me. It's one of the best TFP Megatron toys ever ... and much better than the final battle version that has the replaced right arm (if I'm remembering correctly).

I'm also aware of the fragility of the bat Micron, so hoping Hasbro gets the translucent plastic right with their version so that it's not so fragile. Hasbro Transformers products seem to have a better track record with translucent plastic than Takara Tomy's do.

When they revealed the Autobot Clones for Part 3 of the Space Odyssey subline, I thought they said it was an "all new" deco, as opposed to the Takara Legends release (and ostensibly the original Hasbro release in Titans Return). However, these decoes seem to be exactly the same as the first Hasbro releases. Am I wrong?

For me the most important reveal is that Peter Cullen has on his wall a picture of himself pulling his shirt open to reveal the chest of Optimus Prime, done in the style of a Clark Kent to Superman costume change. I've been seeing that image on the internet for years, always wondering what he thought of it. Now we know, and knowing is half the battle - or so I'm told.

The First Edition Deluxe was the better mold. Just needed to be sized up a la Energon Megatron/Galvatron vs. Super Link Galvatron/Galvatron G.

But instead, Hasbro made an all new mold as a Voyager and gave it a very not-silver pale deco, while Takara then made it even tackier by giving it a dark gray that Prime Megatron does not have at all and covering its body and face with mirrors.

Final Battle Megatron had the best deco of any Prime Megatron toy, minus the pink-painted arm but which was the point of that figure representing Megatron wearing the dead Prime arm he wore in the latter half of Season 2.

You could try Mandarake, I saw a "Silas Breakdown" on there right before the anniversary pack was announced for ~$83 USD + shipping. The English on their site is pretty decent, there is color pictures for each item, and a rudimentary knowledge in katakana can get you very far on the order process.

this is the reason I want that one so badly. I feel that represents Prime Megatron at his most evil in the show: revived by dark energon, the arm of a dead prime robbed from it's grave attached in place of his own so he could access the power of the Primes, wielding a dark form of the star saber forged from dark energon.

You cannot get more hardcore than Megatron was at this point. This is a reason Prime Megatron is one of the best Megatron's ever created.

No, I was referring to any Megatron. I do not count Prime as G1 in the slightest.

And while Beast Megs killing history is definitely high up there, I think the instance of Prime Megatron in Season 2 was more hardcore.

Another, far less known, instance of BW Megatron's hardcore-ness: Blackmailing a demigod by directly threatening his existence.

And later, the two come face-to-face and share this little exchange:
Shokaract: "I'd rather not kill you, Megatron. There are benefits to your continued existence I shall reap in the years to come. You know how it is."

Megatron:"Ah, but I don't. And the knowledge you posses of my future is the very price I demand for not scattering your future across the aeons"

I still remember being shocked when I first saw that. Like, he was going to assassinate Optimus Prime! I thought that was gonna change Transformers forever. (And Beast Wars did.)

I wonder if the Titan after the Ark will be the Nemesis. Is it inevitable now?

Oh as much as I love the Prime two pack I really wish they had gone with Final Battle Megatron over Darkness Megatron. I'm still buying it of course (I'm a ***** for Arms Microns) but if they gone with Final Battle Megatron I would buy two, just so I could have two of that sword (one with stickers, one without).

Put my orders in for the war breakdown pack and royal cobra commander. Looks like UK isnt getting Drizzt, sparkly pink ranger or the foil retro marvels and looking at prices of £90 on the quint pit.

At least the exclusives varied in price so it's not as bad as paying hundreds for a Bot con box set and only star wars fans are taking a huge dent to their wallets exclusive wise. The prime war breakdown set was really decently priced, cheaper and more value for money than a netflix voyager with battlemasters.

looking forward to that ARK !

:D

if they've got ANY sense its third form has to be a playset/base mode to pose other figs on with a prominent teletran one screen :D :D :D :D

but its a real out of the blue figure. i woulda sworn a titan class overlord woulda been next as he's pretty much the only city former left from the original G1 period (euro/jap exclusive or not) .so its nice to get a brand new character.

the head looks very "last autobot"-ty too.

and hey ya just KNOW theres an animated omega supreme homage coming down the road too as i cant see em just wasting the opertunity to maximise the mold.

The Ark is a great choice. And the Nemesis is the next logical one, although Black Zarak is more likely in my book, assuming they elect not to go the exclusive route for him.

That and the fact that he would come from a Titan mold. He'll either be like Grand Max or like Star Convoy in terms of release.

Eh, I'm not so sure.

Maybe they'll see it as a niche item only a few collectors would be interested in, or maybe they'll see it as a really nice color scheme that will appeal to a lot of people in general. It's not like niche characters or color schemes haven't been released before more widely. I'm thinking of Liokaiser and the G2 Combiner Wars releases. Heck, there's a lot of pretty obscure characters they reference just because they can.

To be fair though, despite the head remoulding he'd need, he'd be a repaint. Hasbro have never offered a repaint titan at retail (argument could be made for Fortress Maximus but he had more retooling done then what would be needed for BZ). Only company to offer a repaint titan was Takara with Grand Maximus, which had to get over so many pre-orders to get made)

Black Zarak will only be viable to HasTak as an exclusive of some kind. We'll be more likely to see Metroplex ver 2.0 then BZ at retail release.

True, but this is also a titan. The last exclusive to japanese media titan barely made it to production and did not even get the little pretender suit to make the set complete.

I fully expect that any Black Zarak will be $230 and exclusive to Takara. Open to being wrong, but I have every expectation that if, and I mean BIG IF, Black Zarak happens, it will be Takara titan exclusive

I'm glad Black Zarak means absolutely nothing to me. I don't have to worry about any of that. I'm passing on the Ark as well, so I guess I'm done buying Titan figures for couple of years. Armada Tidal Wave and Animated Omega Supreme would be great, but a redo of Metroplex is also likely in the near future.

I love the concept of the Ark bot. I would prefer an Animated Omega Supreme, but honestly it's so cool to see something original like this.

I'm still hoping for a Titan Animated Omega and Armada Tidal Wave in the future. And i would not mind a re-do of metroplex so long as they went the FOC route

Black Zarak is a strong maybe for me. But they're pumping out a LOT relevant to my interests.

The Ark will probably stay in alt. mode, but I like that they're doing it. I'd get a Nemesis, I guess.

But, other than that? I dunno. I don't even have the space, really. The collector side of me would be tempted if they did a Metroplex more in scale with Trypticon, but the practical side of me says I already have him and I'm happy with him.

isn't that what the 2013 figure was for? I mean sure it's not accurate below the chest, but the game itself (or at least Metroplex's appearance in it) was supposed to be the hype for the new figure and the Titan line as a whole, right? So the "FoC route" would be a more stocky, G1 accurate Metroplex.

And Sabrblade, I think just because Warden left, the concept of an update didn't necessarily go with him. Depends on who takes over for him. Perhaps one of his assistants/apprentices/minions?

No, T30 Metroplex took voice cues and function from FOC, but was not remotely FOC as a toy, completely wrong aesthetic. I want thick, chunky, with the gray and black color scheme, the massive hands, the larger number of guns and missile launchers.

the T30 is nice, but it is not FOC to me

No, T30 Metroplex took voice cues and function from FOC, but was not remotely FOC as a toy, completely wrong aesthetic. I want thick, chunky, with the gray and black color scheme, the massive hands, the larger number of guns and missile launchers.

the T30 is nice, but it is not FOC to me
I doubt he was FOC to anyone, except Hasbro. :lol: I think they thought most fans would be happy they were getting a giant toy, never mind how accurate it actually was.

isn't that what the 2013 figure was for?

Like I said, accuracy ends below the chest. And even that is being generous.

Accuracy begins and end with the hands. Those chests are completely different shapes and proportions.

Am I the only one who's not feeling the feels with the latest toy news? So the Ark is the next titan class figure... That's... nice... But we still don't get a titan class Volcanicus with Voyager-sized dinobots? "Well, hey! We're releasing a bunch of redundant figures for Studio Series 86, and some of the non-redundancies will be dinobots!!" Great. Along with another Kup that no one asked for and that looks awful... And Hasbro still has yet to do the Insecticons justice...

With the Kingdom releases, it looks like we can look forward to Tracks, which is good... I guess... Warpath looks... fine... but yet another Optimus? Hard pass. I can't really say much about the Beast Wars figures - they look good, but Beast Wars figures were never my thing (although I thought the show was great). Cyclonus looks quite good, but I'm not all that excited about him. I certainly don't feel the need to add him to my collection.

I caught the collecting bug a number of years ago when I was passing a toy section in a department store and I found Universe Hound with Ravage. I was blown away - I thought the engineering was great and the figure's aesthetic was really cool. I then picked up a Universe Starscream and stylized Trailcutter. When the Combiner Wars figures dropped, and I saw how Hasbro had updated the Aerialbots, I was hooked. But when POTP was sort of lacklustre (dinobots, no, terrorcons, yes) and seemed to fizzle out the Prime Wars Trilogy with a whimper, I started to get disenchanted. I thought War for Cybertron would be a great opportunity to give us stylized cybertronian versions of many our favourite G1 characters, and in my opinion, Hasbro blew the chance when this was suddenly dropped after only a handful of them in Siege to go back to the Earth forms in Earthrise.

I had faith that Takara might fill the void - the updated Seacons were great, I thought. But now they seem to have fallen into the repaint trap as well with a POTP Volcanicus tweak that no one seems excited about.

I dunno... Maybe this is all a good thing in the end... I can say I had a good run as an armchair collector for a few years and hang up my spurs. But part of me is a bit sad that it's all ending this way...

The only way a Titan Volcanicus would work is if Grimlock was completely redesigned. His horrendous torso mode ruins that combiner.

Give that dino some bulk so he doesn't look like some skinny "Revenge of the Nerds" geek parody. :-D
