New Kiss (BT) Convoy pics

The spikes on that sword make it look like a comb that would come with Rainbow Brite, or something. 

What a POS extra. But aside from the lameass surfboard thingy, I really like this deco better than the Alt version. I still think the mold sucks, and it was a terrible choice of character, but it has been improved overall by the new color scheme.

 

I'm not a BT collector, but if I were, I would be very annoyed at having to pay extra money for something I don't really want. People buy them for the die cast parts and nice paint, not for a stupid anime girl figurine.

I bet she costs $0.00000003 cents to produce

 

my question is, is this now standard issue for all BTs?

I think the thing people seem to forget is that they're not made for the west.

They're made for the Japanese, where, we're told, they DO want them.

 

If I were a BT collector, I wouldn't be pissed with Takara for trying to increase sales in their area, I'd be pissed at Hasbro.

Their failure to deliver is why poeple in their area turn to Japan in the first place.

I guess that the deviancies of the Japanese do need to be considered.  They really must be going downhill if Takara has to resort to such tactics to attract customers.

IIRC this one comes with even more than the figure, hence the higher price tag. I was lead to believe that this one comes with a DVD and a book of some sorts as well as the truck and the figurine.

 

This one is about 1000 yen more than the previous versions I believe.

Two very good posts.

 

That is exactly why I am annoyed that I end up having to pay $5-$10 more for a BTA than I do for a BT. I don't want all the creepy little girl crap that comes w/ the BTA, but as we all know, Takara is marketing their toys differently for the Japanese market, so we are stuck w/ it.

 

I am pissed that Hasbro can't/won't make the BT quality figures for the Alt line. I don't think it would cost them that much more to offer diecast figures over here. Maybe we would have to pay $30 instead of $20 for the plastic Alts, but then the collectors would be getting higher quality figures and Hasbro would be getting our $$ instead of Takara. Plus, the current BT collectors (of which I am one) would save $20 which basically comes from shipping them over to the US anyway. Everybody wins that way.

I know that I wouldn't mind paying a little extra if Hasbro used die-cast metal in their Alternators.

Damn straight.

 

I wouldn't mind paying a little less to not have to import from Japan.

    • These recent reveals are a dream come true, but I find myself in such disbelief for many other reasons. I'm having such a hard time believing these rumors are true because the last year or so of Hasbro tf's have been lackluster at best, and now it's a total 180 from before. This company in such dire financial straights, it's going to he laying off more staff and they are releasing all of this?! We haven't even been shown ss86 Swoop yet, so I'll believe it when I see these releases,  until then, I'll start saving money just in case we get this stuff.
    • Just thought about it a bit more. Or rather, I was really tired last night when I typed this and just woke up clear headed and something popped into my head. That's pretty much the entirety of 2025 right? We also know pretty much everything coming this year too right? Where the fuck is Armada Jetfire and/or Overload? THIS is why Omega Prime would've been horrible at retail, especially as two retail level commanders. We get Armada Prime in 2023. No leaks for Jetfire or Overload for 2024. Now no leaks for either in 2025 either. Meaning we'll have to wait to complete them until 2026 barring any surprises or a double pack or something. Maybe both together as a commander class but that would be weirder than the thought of Hook and Long Haul together as a commander. Imagine waiting for three years to complete Omega Prime. They would never release them both in the same year. They wouldn't even be released in consecutive years if we're being honest. So it would be just as long to HOPE that they don't cancel Ultra Magnus that we're waiting now hoping to complete Magna Jet Convoy. The Armada boys even have several deco options too (quite a few more than the RiD boys anyway) so it's not like they can't recoup some of the costs of the molds. Hell, Jetfire even has retool potential...not that they'd do another Galaxy Shuttle ever again especially with this package refresh but GoBots Spay-C is an option. I WILL have that Spay-C update lololololololol. Going back to the idea of them being released as a commander together though as I thought more about it while typing. Maybe they could work in another combined mode between the two. Use Overload as the torso and arms and Jetfire obviously as the legs. It's something I always wanted to have done with the originals and it was almost possible too but the connectors just didn't line up between them. It would almost be a throwback to G1 Jetfire and the Valkyrie armor in a way. I doubt that will ever happen though. Just trying to give myself some hope to getting them both sooner than 2026.
