Big fan of how the face (along with all the other silver parts) is swappable for non-chromed versions as standard.

Some colour images of Maketoys' version of Hardhead.

I have lots of want for this.

The eyes could use a different colour from the rest of the face or at least a different shade of yellow.

If anyone's still interested in Quantron, for whatever reason MakeToys are selling the bots cheaper separately now (not clear if it's another run ahead of a probable CW Computron or stock to clear).

Absolutely getting another not-Nosecone, and considering an additional set. Always thought the voyager-sized Dildobot would make a good Wrecker.

Not heard anything about changes, but the prices have gone up five quid each on Kapow... hopefully won't go up too much with the other three. Seems to have been some sort of miscommunication from MT.

Moar Paddles! Tail is detachable.

Hooray for Paddles!

As for Quantron, I wouldn't think a possible Hasbro Computron has any bearing given that we're still getting Guardia at the same time as Defensor, and more generally speaking, lots of Devastators.

I just hope the overlap doesn't dissuade them from continuing to make combiners. I really like their style and would like to see their take on Superion and Bruticus someday.

MMC Nova [Seraphicus Prominon] up for PO at American websites.

UK ones to follow shortly, I hope.

A bit more expensive than I'd have thought. April 2016. So tentative it's hard to take it seriously.

Seraphicus is up for pre-order at Kapow for 159.99 GBP (set of both core figure and armour):

http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/mastermin...er-cradle.html

Doesn't seem unreasonable as I figure this is quite big, and clearly complex.

I'd like to see a photo of the final figure with wings outstretched though, and alongside other figures for scale.

There's pictures on tfw2005 and FB with him with Feral Rex, Azalea and Vos.

Not as big as I initially hoped. Preordered at kapow though, been waiting so long for him it's surreal!

That sword with the matrix handle is gorgeous - does he come with that?

No, he's not huge, but you pay for complexity as well as size I guess (I feel that with Cynicus). Although he looks at least four times as massive as Cynicus, so not really bad value even in terms of size in third party terms.

Tempting, but not in The List.

Roll on Carnifex!!

Oh hey look now FansToys are doing a Galvatron
http://news.tfw2005.com/2015/11/15/f...lvatron-305375

Probably scheduled for 2019 with another two-year wait after that when they realise it's too heavy.

Also the intent at maybe doing Hot Rod.

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.

Both look nifty, although Galvatron looks a little bulky for my tastes. Their Hot Rod looks better than Takara's from the pictures, but is no doubt much more expensive.

Regardless, I think I'll pass on both.

Both nail it, imo (based on what I've seen so far). If Galvatron has a good cannon mode and is released in his Marvel colours I may be sorely tempted...

I can't quite put my finger on it but there's something about that Galvatron that doesn't work for me. It might be the bulkiness Numbat mentions.

The Hot Rod looks pretty sweet on the other hand. My initial reaction was that it looks better than the Takara one, but with a little time to think about it I'm not too keen on it. While the bot mode looks great (the fake chest hood helps with that), the car mode looks a bit deformed.

It's the shoulder pad things for me. They look to be part of the chest unit and go straight up as a continuation of the curve of his torso, rather than heading off at an angle. It's distracting and I can't see past it.

I'd rather a slightly deformed car mode than a ridiculously weird robot mode (like the upcoming Takara one).

But, then, I'd ultimately rather neither.

That Galvatron looks mighty tempting. But as others have said, probably will come out in 2019.

I'm betting he'll have two variations--purple and toy grey.

Hot Rod...meh. I'm not entirely sold that the new Takara one will trump my MP09, and I'm not sure I like this one more than the new takara one.

Now that you mention it, the shoulder pads do stand out as not right. The arm cannon looks wrong to me too. A little too large, doesn't look to taper enough, and I don't like how it lacks an actual barrel opening at the end.

On the plus side, ridiculous kneepads.

On a different note, am I crazy or does the 'abs' look like they might actually be buttons?
