Do we have any updates on the Clone(s) box set(s)? From what I've been told is that Robot Kingdom made a mistake and the ONLY box set confirmed with any evidence is the Walgreens one.

As far as I have heard, you are correct.

Thats right, the first two clones are only getting released in their respective big box sets and teh other two are getting a wallgreens boxset in the US.

While we wait for the Wingspan and Cloudraker to see release in he US through Wallgreens (there have been 0 sightings so far), we have some video reviews from Asia. One in Engish from Felzbug and another in Chinese by lichlute if you preffer.

Let us know what you think of them!

Jeez, I'm so glad I really don't care about them!
Because holy crap those scouts will cost a fortune for anyone who want them all. I mean, buying expensive box sets, shipping galore, scalper fees, custom fees... #-o

TRU just delivered Seaspray (waaaaaaaaay overdue) and Overlord. About the former...AWESOME pudgy little mariner! Latter?

Simplicity itself! And equally awesome.

Some tolerance issues in the right arm when you retract it during jetmode.

His helmet is painted ABS PVC. Wished it was molded dark purple blue.

The "head mode" black color in the robot "brow" clashes with the helmet blue. Wished there was some uniformity

He's got somewhat kissable lips

Headmaster pilot is painted unlike the plain Skyshadow version

Keeping the back panel locked is a bit of an issue. (That part prevents his hip/lower half from separating).

Tank transformation is a piece of engineering marvel for its simplicity though I find the tank mode to short/squished like the ChoroQs

Base mode would have been nice to have some antennas or towers like the original

Can't wait for the Takara version!

G1 Rules! Again!

Time for sighthings then :POPCORN:

Heh, while that second panel is the two them arguing "Truck vs. Monkey", the first panel is both of them in agreement going "Convoy not Optimus Prime!" :P

A couple of fantasy boxset ideas I had, based around the tapedecks:
* Twincast (possibly with his TM being dubbed "Broadcast") with the following possible tape/datapad combinations:
** Eject and Steeljaw
** Eject and Ramhorn
** Eject, Steeljaw, and Ramhorn
** Eject and either the Slamdance, Legout, or Decibel combiner pair
* Soundblaster (possibly with his TM being dubbed "Noisemaze") with the following possible tape/datapad combinations:
** Frenzy and Ratbat
** Frenzy and Rumble (since Rumble was shorpacked)
** Frenzy, Ratbat, and Rumble
** Frenzy, Squawktalk, and Beastbox

Speaking of fantasies, Outback or Detritus retools of TM Brawn would have been nice since his vehicle has a good gun mode.

A while back in this thread there was a discussion about a name for Tidal Wave's Titan Master. Some people suggested Ramjet, the name of his Mini-Con partner from Armada, and that works. I don't think I saw anyone suggest Flattop (the grey-and-purple Micromaster jet with a gray-and-purple aircraft carrier that turned into a jet for him), though, but I think that would also work. Altermately, you could treat Tidal Wave himself as an upsized Flattop (in the same vein as Universe Countdown, Dropshot, etc) - the color scheme sure fits.

If Baldigus carry Black Convoy, How about Bruticus?
Also, Octane had a gun form

Nope, it's TLK Voyager Hound's missile cannon assembly.

I somehow doubt it's that either considering A. it doesn't look like any of the accessories TLK Hound appears to come with and B. Correct me if I'm wrong, but TLK Hound doesn't even seem to be out yet. He's listed on Hasbro Toy Shop (where he's listed as out of stock) but not on any of the physical retail chains' sites.

Since he's been reviewed by people, I'm assuming Hound is out in some places, just not to proper saturation (yet). And the part I was referring to isn't any of his guns, it's the turret-thing his guns attach to in vehicle mode, which is normally left on his back in robot mode. However, it is removable.

Of course, it could be something else entirely, so sorry in advance if I'm wrong.

I was gonna suggest Flattop, but never got around to it. The rumored name was "Powerhouse", but that turned out to be part of his function.

I've found Hound at TRU and walmart, and that peg box is his turret attachment piece. Also, the turret piece sim molded to look like a (albeit addly shaped) gun. It just needs a stick on the front and it would look like some sort of futuristic laser crossbow.

Every time I check on Amazon they just show ones that scalpers are selling for $200+

Indeed. If anyone can provide a link, that would be cool. ;)^
