Nothing unexpected, but here's the December solicitation for more Legends figures, including Targetmaster Slugslinger.

Surprising no one, Takara have solicited for the Autobot clones in a set. Also Overlord and Blitzwing.

No mention of the decepticon clones yet.

Also have we mentioned that Takara are doing a Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod? Because of course they are.

Looks to be slightly darker in colour scheme on the legs. There are pictures out there, I'm not your ****ing butler.

That sort of weird nonsense was not enough to make me buy the same mold twice (Ultra Magnus), but since I skipped the regular Hot Rod...might actually get this one.

They missed an opportunity here tho, since he already has swappable hands, they could've given him the Headmasters anime style attachment point, too.

More "Movie The Best" listings, which have just been re-releases of old movie figures with fancy paint, and listings for what are probably the decepticon clones, headmaster windblade, and something listed as G2 Megatron.

Maybe that's the Blitzwing Megatron in a G2 deco?

I would guess it's BlitzMegs in Hero Megatron colours, since Japan only got the big G2 Megs years later as Megastorm.

Indeed it is!

I, uh, appear to have lost all sense of reason and preordered both the Decepticon Clones and Megatron, since they look great and their Hasbro counterparts have been basically unattainable around these parts. The Clones especially...I didnít realize that their pink was swapped for purple in the Headmasters show but it looks fantastic, if a bit strange.

I heard that! At first I was all "what?", and then I realized that RiD/Car Robots is about as old now as G1 was when Takara first started to put out reissues.

Then I felt old.

God Fire Convoy images are out now; it's basically the Japanese TRU boxset version with the Master Sword included.

Also, because it worked so well the first time, Takara are having a stab at Star Wars vehicles turning into Star Wars characters.

And in a move nobody saw coming when Pretenders were brought back, Takara are bringing down the average costs on the Fort Max mould some more by giving us Grand Maximus. Because obviously.

And the inevitable Greatshot redeco of Sixshot had also been announced.

Takara movie anniversary solicits, including potentially a leader class blackout, finally.

Legends Grand Maximus is going ahead for production, although apparently still needs more pre orders for the pretender shell to be made.

This one, I think I'll get. I skipped the TR Fort Max because I have the encore release of the original, but Grand Max is different enough that I'd like to see what's changed from Metroplex.

Masterpiece Dinobot product listing. It's... twice as much as Primal? Surely that's not right, even if they make him at the scale used for the show (he would be the biggest Maximal).

I'd like to believe that's the wrong price, but that's what people said when Sunstreaker preorders first went up, and we all know how that went.

In spite of my fanatical love for Beast Wars, if the price is anywhere close to that I'll have to pass.
