You could listen in. Or don't. Be left in the digital dust. But remember: you could have won a Porsche.

Lots of complaints of capitalism in this episode! :APPLAUSE: :DANCE: ;)^

You hit the nail on the head with designers in the U.S. Everyone needs to be a replaceable cog. If you're a star that's as big as the brand, you're not a replaceable cog.

Buying a box or 3 is the only way handle TCGs, so there is a certain element of pay to win. The instructions that are included with the starters are terrible. The wording is weak and they don't really discuss some things at all (shuffling). There are some videos on the official site, but you'll probably want to find some tutorials on YouTube.

I really want the headmaster Jrs and the other pretenders (beasts, cars, etc.) updated. I'm surprised that several toys haven't had repaints announced yet like astrotrain, spinister, frenzy, ravage, Springer. It's been surprising how many have gotten a recolor of themselves like impactor, mirage, shockwave, prime, Megatron.

Characters repainted into themselves is a pipe dream for them. Minimal R&D and it almost always just provides extra choice to make someone happy. Hopefully it never goes full 90s Batman, then again a look at Cyberverse sure feels that way sometimes.

Scotty asked, so here we go...

Tokusou Kihei Dorvack.
Whirl was the Oberon Gazette, Roadbuster was the Mugen Calibur, a third tank type went unused by Hasbro. The toys were owned by Takatoku toys (later by Bandai) just like the VF-1S Valkyrie mold for Jetfire.
