I've seen the video reviews of that Lockdown, and the Transformation looks ingenious - virtually zero kible, with 99% of the car parts hidden. Even his back is clean, with a nicely-sculpted...

Well, I'll chime in, if you like.

I'm not going to buy any of these guys - I'm going to wait and see what Takara do.

Maketoys I have a lot of experience of - their Chromedome and Hardhead are...

I know XTB have a bit of a bad reputation for QC, but some of their figures (their Blaster and Scourge especially) look quite nice. Are those both lemons or are they worth getting?

Oh my, that looks great. I love Cupola and have their Hardhead on order, and this looks just as tasty. Haven't they got Dreadwind and Darkwing in the pipeline as well?

Really, they should...

Galvatron looks pretty nice, so I may get him if Takara doesn't announce an official one before 2019.

As for Hot Rod - nope. I'll stick with the official, thanks.

The X Transbots Inferno looks ace - too bad it's made by X Transbots! Looks nicer than the MT one, but Maketoys usually have great quality, so would seem to be the safer option. MT Hardhead is...

For me, preorders are a way for me to get 'locked in' to a product. I can hit 'buy', pay for a figure, then forget about it until the dispatch email arrives.

In fact, the delays and drama actually...

Will probably go Fans Toys for Hound, but Maketoys have definitely won the Reflector wars - the way they hid the lens in robot mode is such a genius bit of design.

Going back to the 3P Shockwaves, apparently the Cloud 9 one uses the exact same engineering / transformation scheme as the Fanstoys version.

As good as that Sunstreaker looks, I think I'll hold out for an official Takara version.

In other news, there's another third party MP-style Shockwave coming out.

The thing with Tesla is that FT's previous designs have all had a touch of ingeniousness about them: the way Quakewave's handle folds away into the legs, the way Scoria's rear dino legs vanish.

I've got Scoria and Soar, and they are great figures. I'm happy with my MP Grimlock as-is, but I'm willing to reconsider if the FT version wows me sufficiently.

That said, their Perceptor is a big...
