Also, if Chuck is reading, I think this kind of dispells the rumours of the bots being released individually. In the end, did any of your contacts' predictions play out correctly?

Please do not take this the wrong way, I am just really curious about where those predictions came from and what they were based on.


So far all of them did. He has a source that's in contact with an Asian market dealer I think. I don't ask a lot of questions. That's a good rule for life.

Ordered a long time ago and still happy i did, this set looks fantastic. The only thing that could make it better is if the individual bots' guns are all black and not white like on the pictures that we have seen.

Cool pic!

Here's the latest as of writing this:

Looks like he's simulating the original toy here, no elbow articulation, and the jets on the back of the legs.

Btw, can Superion's gun peg to Fireflight's wing?

what about the time they said hotspot would be based on the prime/motormaster mold? and I am pretty sure takara's cw devastar wont be released as individual mps.

Its not an MP, but its definitely MP scale. In my opinion, this choice cost Hasbro a lot of sales from both the CHUG and MP buyers. They better hope all the 5 year old kiddies break out their wallets or the warehouse shelves are going to be green for a long time. :lol:

I agree with you on the scale, but if the serious mp buyers take a close look at this sucker,
1: it's not screen accurate and,
2: nowhere near MP quality.
If they put this thing in an MP box, they might as well put the RID line in them as well.
I'm sure you're right about Hasbro hoping the kids will come through. I know it's just become lawn mowing season, but I've yet to see packs of kids offering to mow my lawn to save up for this. You have to wonder if after the initial novelty is over, this could be a Costco pallet warmer.

Dude, I am just reiterating something Chuck's source said to keep the tally on rumours, especially when the source is said to always be right.

Well, if it's any indication, Metroflex sold out. The price range is more or less the same as Devastar. Andddddddddddddddddd, with the exception of the Sentinel Scorponok release, price seems to matter the least to many hardcore Japanese collectors.

The Japanese market is different from the American market who always complain about everything.

Also noticed that the CW sets more or less stands at the same price point as the domestic individual releases in total. If ordered directly from Japan based online stores compared to 3rd party domestic sources like BBTS etc.

It's a teaser for the deco changes, not the mold.

I don't see it. Whatever Hasbro "loses" out of this IMO can already be attributed to the 3P's. But even then, a year after it's release Devy will be long gone from retail shelves.
