I guess Cog is being done on the assumption that the Fort Max reissue is expensive (especially if you have to ship overseas) so anyone who brought it is likely to be enough of a mad fan of the character to be interested in supped up versions of his little pal?

'Course, who'd buy a third-party Crankcase? I mean, really? I like the guy, and the Scavengers issue made me like him more, but I'm never ever going to pay third-party prices for him.

Whereas anyone who's a fan of Ironfist probably has read Roberts' other work, and wouldn't mind Crankcase tagging along. That's the only logic I can think of.

Regardless, whatever fleeting chance of me buying him has just disappeared. I've got nothing but love for Crankcase, but I don't need a third-party priced toy of him.

That's what I think too. The Ironfist figure looks cool, but not enough to make me buy an extra figure that I don't want in the first place.

Denyer 2013-05-25 09:06 PM

According to latest comments, they'll be doing the figures individually.

Springer85 2013-05-26 07:03 PM

I'm glad. That makes me onboard for the figure again. :)

Doesn't look that great in color, to be honest. I hope the one that Mastermind creations makes is going to look a little better.

Yeah, it's more faithful to the original... but the original was a brick.

Seem to recall reviews of the "Divebomb" that indicated some QC issues as well.

Is it just the two companies doing designs analogous to the Predacons?

edit: Previous review seen... http://tformers.com/transformers-vid...9646/news.html

Springer85 2013-05-29 12:18 PM

I think that it's only these 2 companies that are doing the Preds, yeah. I haven't seen any others so far. Though I'll keep an eye out for it :)

In other news: here's a video review for Mastermind Creations TERMINUS HEXATRON - Super Nova Limited Edition. (Third party Sixshot)

More news!

Preorders for M5-01 Gauntlet (Ironfist) & M5-02 Piston (Crackcase) are up at BBTS!
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/s...rch=third+mach

I'm still waiting to see some shots of the finished product with, if possible, some original TF's for a size comparison.

Heinrad 2013-05-29 11:55 PM

Think I'm going to get this one. Looks like BBTS is selling them separately.

Springer85 2013-05-30 06:22 PM

Yeah, the $50,- make it just the right price for me since I'm I'll also be down $22,- for shipping alone. :(

Denyer 2013-05-30 07:14 PM

Andy from Kapow Toys is aiming to have pre-orders up around the end of the week for UK/European folks, fingers crossed.

Springer85 2013-05-30 10:18 PM

That's good news! That will save me a lot in shipping :)

Clay 2013-06-01 12:59 AM

Wings of Uranos supplement set. Face plate, arm mounted cannon, chest plate, etc.

Love the look, but it should've been included with the existing releases.

Clay 2013-06-01 01:03 AM

Mastermind Creation's Leo Dux (not-Razorclaw) in color.

Springer85 2013-07-11 03:58 PM

Looks like a third party Overlord is in the works :)

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...9870600&type=1

The tank looks a bit weird...

numbat 2013-07-12 04:52 PM

Looks really awesome, but, yeah, tank mode's odd - still better than G1 version. To be honest, I really really want to see HasTak revisit overlord properly...

Denyer 2013-07-13 05:57 PM

Never noticed these Fansproject ones last year, third party Brainstorm homage... the blockiness works for him, whereas it feels weird seeing the same approach to Chromedome after MTMTE.

Hmmm, that Not-Overlord... is that aircraft carrier mode also one of his transformation? Would kind of make the tank mode forgiveable if so. It looks pretty good. Not good enough for me to buy with the expected ludicrous price, but one that looks pretty damn good nonetheless.

Not-Brainstorm and Not-Weirdwolf really look pretty nice. Very, very refreshing to see Weirdwolf not look like a brick.

Agree with Denyer that after MTMTE seeing a traditional bricky Chromedome is... different.

Some new photo's via Robotkingdom. Looks to me like a 3rd party Defensor is in the works because the guy on the first pic looks an awful lot like Streetwise! :D (He's in robotform in some later pics too)
