Ergh, they did that for Nosecone? That's probably the worst drilltank I've seen in ages!

And what's worse is they'll make a Drillhorn out of that. Sigh

Drilltanks have always been meh. Never understood what it was doing on a technobot team. Same with a space shuttle on a military team (and brown no less).


But I want this set like crazy! And some of those G2 sets. Where can I get a Menasor that won't destroy me in import fees?

Yeh by what keeps being said hes meant to be scrounge as seen here: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scrounge_(G1)

I just really like that cosmos mold so wouldnt mind being able to pick up seperately, but the feet and hands show its likely a set not individuals.

I wish hasbro and takara would stop teasing and just announce computron already.

It does look like takara has made a better drill tank mode for nosecone than what hasbros was looking like, also looks like strafe may be based off their blast off rather than air raid.

Come on guys announce them!!

I think my love for technobots will cause me to get both versions. They both have things I like n dislike. Mid them together into my preferred Computron.

Now to be unrealistically greedy and moan for an Abominus.

Hasbro and Takara versions are different enough that I will be getting both.
Looking forward to whatever else Combiner related either company manage to release, though I think both Predaking and Abominus are highly unlikely.


Anyone see the news that TRU Taiwan is giving away a Hasbro version of Deluxe Groove, unchanged from the Unite Warriors release
And in May you can purchase it from Hong Kong online stores.
I hope that sometime between now and when I head to Hong Kong in May I know if there is a chance I can get one locally or if I have to import.

As my love for Computron is undying, I will most likely end up getting both.

And then there was colour!

Really like the shape and molds of takara but the colours are quite muted compared to hasbros, Id say Im still in team takara on this one. Thoughts?

I'm still keen on the Hasbro one. Mostly because I want Scrounge and the new hands/feet.
