TRANSFORMERS the Toy Thread - Season 2: JUSTICE WARS

Harmony Gold (owners of the Robotech license) is now suing Hasbro under the claim that Hasbro's SDCC Exclusive uses their Veritech design.

Harmony Gold, the main distributor of Robotech, have filed against Hasbro claiming that the 2013 SDCC GI Joe vs. Transformers exclusive set violates their intellectual property. Or more specifically, the Skystriker decoed as the G1 Jetfire toy. Since that original Jetfire toy lifted its color scheme directly from the Macross toy from which it was licensed 30 years ago, Harmony Gold believe this new toy is too close to their property.

I hope Hasbro won't let that bullshit through. It's a paint scheme on a Hasbro original jet design. What? Harmony Gold owns the color red and white when put on a friggin' jet??

Kinda glad I don't have either Grimlock OR Bruticus:

He just hit TRUs in Canada but for 150…that's way overpriced for what it is.

This morning I managed to snag a Shockwave's Lab set off HasbroToyshop.com. Man shipping to Canada is outrageous, with shipping, handling and taxes the whole shebang ended up costing TWICE what the toy itself cost ><

But I never owned a SDCC exclusive, or BH Shockwave.

-.- yeah yeah I know, you get all the toys. I'm lucky I got my hands on FOC Magnus, Starscream and Kickback. Never saw any part of Bruticus but a single Swindle.

What was Toy World's track record like for the Not Megatron they released?

I want that Prime, but I'm not sure what they're quality is like.

I have Hegemon and the only minor thing with mine was that the right shoulder needed some Future polish. Other than that, it's all great. I also have Hardbone, as well as Grind Rod and Aurora. I've been happy with them. ;)

I wouldn't mind going to TF COn one of these years but I don'T think I can justify going there just for the dealer room. I think I'm too much of an introvert to properlly mingle at one of those big events :disappoin not sure what to expect from the panels either.
