Yeah, I’d love to get that to do the Henshin trick with Flint since I’ll already play the Black transformation music on my phone while doing the pose sequence with him. But I can’t bring myself to drop a hundred bucks on a driver that doesn’t have a fiddly gimmick. I might have to browse some Japanese sites through Buyee or something once it releases.
Still..It might be worth it to find out of those buttons on top do anything. I got through the whole series expecting those buttons to eventually come into play…but not freaking ONCE!

So, I found out that they reproduced the gimmick from the original 80's toy. Those seizure inducing flashes when Black transforms or does his Rider Kick and Rider Punch had a purpose, they triggered a light sensor in the belt and activated effects. This new one comes with a DVD with some episodes modified so this will work with the new belt on a modern TV.

Oh nice. I thought the Sentai deal had all gone in the pot when Hasbro took over. Guess they just needed to renegotiate.
And god damn, been waiting for them to get cracking with the Kamen Rider stuff. They did Zero-One, then kinda went dark on that front. I will stab a bitch for some official Agito and Faiz Blu Rays.
From what I understand when Hasbro bought eOne, many of their entertainment rights had to be renegotiated. Paramount, IDW, Little, Brown and Company (They do those children's books.) And the terms changed... Some like IDW parted ways with some of the properties. Others like Paramount came to terms.

Kamen Rider Black Sun teaser:
Official site has some key art / promo photos if you want a better look at the suits. They look very inspired by the Super Imaginative Chogokin figure line, they leaned hard into the biomechanical aspect.
Optimal Megatron: I still got this one because she'll be in better scale overall, but it's a funny bit
Aug 12, 2022 0:04:52 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: The funny thing is I got Mastermind Creations' 3rd party Override ages ago because I never thought she'd get another toy.

iacon45: Scourge is preparing to ship at Walmart.com
Aug 11, 2022 15:13:49 GMT -5
iacon45: She has some issues with red paint smear onto the white and the gun is loose in her hands but those are minor. Very well done and recommended.
Aug 11, 2022 12:37:18 GMT -5
iacon45: Velocitron Override is a fun figure! More streamlined than the original, better arms, and no awkwardly wide weapon.
Aug 11, 2022 12:36:27 GMT -5
iacon45: Yes! I just sold CW Menasor so I need them to fill the gap. I kinda hope Legacy redos the Protectobots next and somehow incorporate the combiner body into Hot Spot.
Aug 7, 2022 22:13:38 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: So, Legacy Motormaster and his Most-o-sor mode are both pretty good. Now the rest of the Stunticons need to hurry up and come out.
Aug 7, 2022 21:49:54 GMT -5
iacon45: I like them both to be honest. Still wish I had my TFU 2.0 and G1 Cosmos.
Aug 5, 2022 18:13:48 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: I admit, I'm satisfied with the Legends Cosmos from that era, so I wasn't super worried about not getting him
Aug 5, 2022 14:07:20 GMT -5
iacon45: And Velocitron Cosmos just arrived. That's a big checkmark and a sigh of relief.

iacon45: Personally, I wouldn't have minded smaller scale Joe x TFs scaled with tiny GI Joe mini figures instead of full size 3.75" figures
Aug 5, 2022 10:50:53 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Sometimes you just want something like Energon Snowcat where it's a GI Joe vehicle that transforms rather than having to make huge holes for Joe figures.
Aug 5, 2022 10:41:06 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: So I ended up talking with MD about the crossover Cobra Megatron, and apparently he wasn't super impressed with it in person, so I decided to drop that pre-order. Kinda sad, but the biggest thing against it seems to be being scaled for GI Joes.
Aug 5, 2022 10:40:32 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: That said, I did get one of the 3rd party upgrades for Menasor, so mine is a bit more buff than usual.
Aug 5, 2022 10:08:19 GMT -5
iacon45: Bruticus is ok too considering the initial issues Onslaught had
Aug 4, 2022 23:12:34 GMT -5
iacon45: The combiner hip on my UW Computron is extremely loose. Same with some of Defensor. Superion and Dev still seem ok though.
Aug 4, 2022 23:09:48 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Honestly, I'd say the CW Motormaster/Prime mold would probably have the most problems. The rest of the ones I've got easy access to seem to be doing alright.
Aug 4, 2022 23:02:25 GMT -5
iacon45: Just got out my CW Menasor and this guy didn't age well. In fact a lot of my CW combiners are having issues.
Aug 4, 2022 22:55:10 GMT -5
iacon45: Agreed. Ive got a SS86 Sweep for a Sweep and Selects Cyclonus for "Armada". Unless I find some dirt cheap SS86 Sweeps, Im good on the Unicron bunch
