We'd known about Star Convoy before, but Super Megatron is a complete surprise, and the possibility of MAYBE a retooled Snaptrap to make a Generations Selects Seacons team would be kind of shocking. Moreso if all these are actually Generations Selects, then we might be getting all of these in the US rather than as Takara imports, which is a heck of a thing if we're gonna get all of Takara's weird retools with US releases going forward.
I saw your post yesterday that Star Convoy is up at Hasbro Pulse OM. Been thinking of pre-ordering it.
What is strange is that he is being marketed under the Generations Select name and still being offered by Takara/Tomy and not their LG-EX line. I saw the Hasbro Pulse listing has it listed as a Takara/Tomy release and is selling it at the usual Takara import price (which is not unexpected) but I admit I was kind of hoping he might have seen a more traditional US release as another possible retail exclusive like the recent Amazon POTP Nemesis Prime or the book releases at a more US retail price. Wouldn't have thought twice about pre-ordering this at $50.
My question is how they are going to release the rest of the seacons? Are they going to release them as future single releases over time or pull a CW Scattershot and release a full set later on with another Snap Trap.
There's also the matter of the sixth Seacon that would act as a Targetmaster. Wonder if they'd go so far as to include that functionality.
Back during Combiner Wars, where they had a Legend class guy be the weapon for a Combiner, it was kinda ideal. Make a normal Quintet, and then have a Legend class Nautilator. Now though? I have no idea.
That said, Cutthroat, Rippersnapper, Blot, Swinnertwin and Sludge would make easy retools into Sea Wing, Overbite, Tentakil, Nautilator and Skalor respectively. So I don't think they'll have the weapon option.
Blade Raider: ...I don't think I have any preorders on BBTS...

iacon45: I'm cool with doing it for smaller items at retail like $10-50. But the higher priced items like Titans, MPs, etc. , it adds up.

Greatshot: yeah, the whole being taxed for online purchases thing is lousy. I mean, i get it, but i don't have to like it.

iacon45: Just saw that BBTS is going to start charging sales tax for Ark. orders so I just went through and cancelled a bunch of pre-orders including my two SoC Go Lion and Dairugger Voltrons.

iacon45: Explains the lull in the comic pretty well.

Blade Raider: Not that there's anything wrong with that Artemis, I just have complete indifference to Young Justice.

Blade Raider: Wrong Artemis, this one I actually want to buy a toy of.

Paladin: she's about as tall as Wally, maybe shorter than M'Gann.

Blade Raider: Digging through magazine scans from the 90's the BWII subs included. Getting detracted by Lio Convoy hanging out with Mario, Mega Man, and a bunch of toku characters. I love TV kids magazines, they always do this kind of fun thing.

Blade Raider: Trying to figure out how tall Artemis is suppose to be. Funny how we have a scale near for every TF cartoon accept BWII.

Blade Raider: Yeah, I just don't watch many sitcoms these days. I'm curious, do they have laugh tracks?
Jun 23, 2019 0:06:32 GMT -5
iacon45: Yea it's a sitcom but a decent one. Also watched one called The Ranch. Has Sam Elliot in it.

Blade Raider: Darn, the magazine scans of Artemis doesn't have any new info. Was hoping the text next to it would have a height.
Jun 22, 2019 23:45:25 GMT -5
Blade Raider: Ah, looks like a sitcom.
Jun 22, 2019 23:09:14 GMT -5
iacon45: Just premiered yesterday. Stars a stand up comedian named Gabriel Iglesias.
Jun 22, 2019 23:05:03 GMT -5
Blade Raider: Can't say I heard of that one.
Jun 22, 2019 22:59:50 GMT -5
iacon45: I was watching a new show called Mr. Iglesias. Not a bad show.
