Yeah, still not interested in Feral Rex but I think Catilla would go nicely with the Wreckers/Survivors.

Clay 2014-09-04 03:52 AM

I'm down with that. Although the expected release date of December is a long shot at best.

Apparently he also comes with different colored hooves for Tantrum... why? Were his feet red in the media somewhere?

Knightdramon 2014-09-04 06:13 AM

I thought that the hooves were for the Rhino...but I can't remember his original name :D

Apparently on the first pics of the toy he was shown with red hooves, and then he came with black, and some people were unhappy. Now other people are unhappy that Felisabre is coming with these extras :lol:

Colour pictures of Blue Soar [Swoop] from FT now up

And looks GREAT

Only thing worrying me is the multitude of joints on the dino legs and all the weight they will carry.

Denyer 2014-09-04 08:45 PM

Are they doing the toy colours version at roughly the same time?

Knightdramon 2014-09-04 09:24 PM

Yeah, although I can understand why they showcased this one first.

If I recall correctly, toy version has some more paint apps as well.

MMC is also coming out with a Black Azalea/Arcee/whichever for an overseas convention in Malaysia.

"Exclusive" repaints of figures that aren't even released yet somehow baffle me, like that FT Sludge this summer.

The black arcee is stated to be 500 units in production. Probably one will fly our way one way or another. Artwork was impressive even if the mould doesn't really say much from the one messy video review available.

....And here's Abominus! From the company that made that nifty Galvatron and one of the Predaking sets.

Wow - that looks extremely awesome! Shame about the very painful price for just one component...

Unicron 2014-09-05 08:22 PM

That actually doesn't look bad. I question the wisdom of making the first release in the set be Blot but what do I know, I don't sell this sort of thing

Ryan F 2014-09-06 06:18 PM

The combined mode has weird proportions; it's knees look way to high, for one thing.

Denyer 2014-09-25 11:59 PM

Not-Catilla pics... :up:

Clay 2014-09-26 12:44 AM

Nice! Here's hoping he pops up within a few months of when he's supposed to.

Clay 2014-09-27 03:20 PM

Renderform is going to offer some non-transforming MTMTE heads for Code and Smart Robin.

Kind of defeats the purpose of the Headmaster, but casting a block in two or three pieces probably keeps the cost down compared to a tiny transforming figure. They do look nice...

EDIT: Here's Renderform's website with oodles more pictures.

Knightdramon 2014-09-27 05:07 PM

Felisabre looks nice, if a little...plain. Hope he gets some knives or something more to hold besides that one gun.

The yellow bulk ups on his thighs really need to change into dark gray or black to match his legs. The yellow really looks out of place.

Neat video of MMC promoting him. Liking the music.

Denyer 2014-09-27 07:12 PM

Not overly bothered, it gets the aesthetic of the pretender original over pretty well.


The Brainstorm one suits the figure better than the Chromedome one... but I prefer the approach of tweaking what it comes with -- can recommend MegaMoonMan's faceplate and briefcase pack;

Going off the idea of getting the Hasbro voyager, it's too large for the figures it'd be shelfmates with.

Clay 2014-09-27 07:27 PM

Hmmm... he has a few prints that I might have to get (tank Megatron hand, crane mount for Grapple). Thanks!

Denyer 2014-09-27 08:04 PM

Other likely pretender homages coming apparently...

Could go for a couple of those, and maybe they could get a Death's Head II out of it.

Knightdramon 2014-10-11 01:34 PM

Felisabre has an extra battle mask

Hate having to play catch up on these guys!!! :lol:

Clay 2014-10-11 07:33 PM

Warbotron Whirldwind (Vortex) in color

With the previous Warbotron figures, the final color shots have preceded release by about two or three weeks. So it won't be long now!

Denyer 2014-10-14 07:34 PM

Anyone interested in this, BTW? Can't spot a UK pre-order, will probably just nab on eBay. Picked up an additional Evasion Prime (I think the one from the Autobots box set... better paint apps but not chromed) for it already, although as a straight Prime I still prefer the regular one from TRU without a faceplate that I've doodled over with various sharpies.
