Okay, now I'm just not sure what's going on ...'s news story on the upcoming ROBOTECH toys gives us an alternate slating of Cyclone goodness than Raving Toy Maniac's Toynami press release stated here. The good news is that instead of Sue Graham's Cyclone we get poor put-upon Rand, who hasn't been featured in a Masterpiece yet.'s article, after their folks snapped the shots of the Beta Fighters, also states that we'll be seeing the Betas this year. Is this from actual talk with Toynami reps, or is this just speculation based on seeing the Beta on display? In either case, I'd say it's a good sign for those of us who still want to see a proper transformable Beta.


  • That isn't the only contradiction. I talked to Josh of Collection DX ( after his meeting with Toynami on Tuesday and his information did not jibe with what reported. According to Josh, it was brought to the show just to gauge interest. There are currently no plans to actually produce it.

    If that's the case, it's unfortunate, but I understand where Toynami is coming from. They've probably spent a lot of time, effort, and (most importantly) money developing those prototypes, and the toy isn't destined to be anything but a low-run, high priced item. The goal is to make a profit, after all.

  • To clarify, I'm talking about the Beta above. Must have accidentally cut that part. ;p

    And Josh's info came directly from George Sohn, in case met with someone else.

    Keep watching - their Toynami pics are up and a full report is coming soon.
