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

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?

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

@Clay:

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
