Ok, I've really got to learn more about this frustration free packaging. Is it just wrapped in something and no box? Are there no tie-downs? What makes it $20-worth of cheaper?

I am curious too, Canada doesnt have this option for some reason.

Were you collecting when Age of Extinction was around? That Optimus evolution set was the best way to get the classics mold.


Great figures bad repaints


They were amazing repaints. The AOE Voyager had the actual correct deco of what movie Optimus would have looked like when painted and the Classics one had the perfect G1 deco that only the Cloud Optimus surpasses.

Check these awesome repaints:

Agreed on the Evolution Primes. Those rock. But I'd say Cloud and Evo Classics Primes are trying to achieve different things. Cloud is toon accurate while Evo is toy accurate.

Exactly, though even with the toy accuracy angle, the Evolution set took several liberties, including gray upper arms, black shins, and black fists. The Cloud version gets these toy details right, with red upper arms, blue shins, and blue fists, even though it's actual aim is to be screen accurate to the G1 cartoon.

Looks like for Amazon, you get a brand specific brown box with the figures inside versus the actual box packaged inside a generic Amazon box. Seems good from a buying a toy for a kid perspective, bad from a collector perspective.

I'm going think really hard about it. This is probably the only platinum set that has piqued my interest and that seems like a reasonable price, considering how much those platty sets retail for.

I like amazon's frustration free packaging on other stuff, but I feel that part of the allure to these special sets is the neat-o burrito packaging. I can only imagine that the brown box will lower any future re-sell amounts/value :-?

To answer what is the dealio with the frustration free packaging, its just a boring box with just more cardboard supporting the figures with the tied down. Think the way CW Devy was packaged, only with out color and graphics on the outside.

As a crazy collector type person, I'm torn. :HEADHURTS:

I wouldn't buy this set without the awesome box. Really, that's the only reason I want ANY of these TF:TM Platinum sets. I have the figures already but I don't have those awesome boxes!

Yeah, the packaging has at least some value to a lot of people including me, probably moreso with these Platinum sets. I would be very tempted to get this for $75 if it was in the standard packaging. But they'll have to come down for me to choose the brown amazon packaging.

It's also interesting that the standard packaging option, which is much more expensive, is not sold directly by Amazon. Hopefully Amazon itself gets in some standard packaging units too.

I don't know were this would go but it said Platinum set so...

I was looking for Fort Max at Myer again and he wasn't there, spoke to the cashier about him and she said a collector (I think scalper) came in and bought them both for full price. She let me check the computer for availability in other places in Australia, but the most interesting thing wasn't about how much they had in stock at Melbourne. It was what was in the related searches.

TRA GENERATIONS PLATINUM EDITION Liokaiser Combiner

The title probably isn't that accurate from what I saw on the computer. (They get really specific) But still, interesting...

I don't think this is news, we know that it's coming, and as a box set like all the other ones, and as his cross-sell made no mention of being a 'Platinum', I would think that it might be a typo.

Well all I knew was the CW Combiner, didn't know they would be reissuing the G1 combiner.

Who's saying that? I'm saying it's likely the cw boxset listed incorrectly. If they are releasing the g1 set, we have not heard anything about it. Until then, assume it's a typo in the system.

We technically haven't been officially told that the CW-molded Liokaiser would be sold under the Generations Combiners Wars label. We just assumed that it would based on there being so many other boxed set combiners coming out under that label: G2 Superion, G2 Menasor, G2 Bruticus, Victorion, Computron, etc.

But let's also remember that the only cross-sell we saw for Liokaiser was on the Platinum Edition Autobot Heroes set. Unless Platinum Edition packaging cross-sells advertise toys of other non-Platinum Edition lines, this coupled with the new computer listing would be good indicators that Liokaiser very well might be a Platinum Edition release instead of a Combiner Wars boxed set.

Well that's incredibly frustrating. Liokaiser's doomed to extremely large prices no matter what, huh.
Bet you guys anything that if this is true the Takara version will be cheaper.

Alright, that's fair then, guess that would make it a platinum edition set then, seems fitting I guess, if he really comes with several arms microns too. Has the price been listed anywhere?

That's if Takara even does a Liokaiser, that is.

Officially speaking, the cross-sell seen on the Autobot Heroes set at BotCon is the first official venue that has even indicated this toy's existence.

I was wondering if the list price had come up in the computers like computrons did, but now that I think on it, the art was the official rumor, then the cross-sell and that's it, guess not. Do you think the price would be higher than $100? And what store do you think would get it, and would hts get it (I don't remember if they got any of the other platinum sets, but I don't think that they did...)
