Ain't that the truth. I still need to get most of the combiners that came out last year.


Same here, want them all and hyped whenever something new comes out but only have 3 of the combiners weve been graced with. May need to start investing in lotto tickets

I am most definitely going broke with the new Headmasters. Also, screw Hasbro's Computron. I don't normally go Takara, but in this case, I'm going with the Takara version.

Seems every year the reveals at Botcon get smaller and smaller

However, I am rather happy with what is coming out.

As I have been getting both Hasbro and Takara Combiners, the differences between the two are awesome.
New Decepticon Deluxes are a welcome sight in RiD, and some of the Minicon weapons look enjoyable
Titan Masters continues to impress, filling out some of the gaps and I like that we have another two years - more choice (though I am going Takara only)

I far prefer Takara's Compy, but I think the Hasbro version has better feet and hands. That being said, I could always mold and cast Hasbro Compy's hands n feet to put onto Takara Compy. Those Headmasters do look smashing too

Why have people not been getting freakin' hyped by this teaser silhouette that was at the end of the Hasbro panel?

OVERLORD IS COMING.

It most likely is Overlord, juging from the shape of those wing arms on the jet, but this is just a silhouette, it could be someone else. Six shot has also been rumored for a while, he can be a tank and a jet, but not both at the same time.

I like both those characters, but what if get my hopes up and it's someone else!

It is overlord. Hasbro were dropping huge hints in their panel. Saying stuff like "we don't want to just lord this over you" with emphasis placed in lord and over.

Everyone is hyped. I had heard of the picture but never saw it anywhere.

Okay that definitely cinches it. Wooooooooooooooooooooooo! Overlord!!!!!1!!!!

He should be leader class, right? I don't think two vehicles would work so well in a voyager class.

If he works with the Titan Masters mini figures and has a base mode I am all over that!
