Some footage of MMC's Overlord homage (and some other stuff) Dramon will probably be interested in;

You're right!

These look exceptional. Probably won't be out before 2017 though, if past releases are any indication.

Tarn/Kultur is a bit bigger than expected.

Strika looks sublime and there's a Roadbuster repaint/retool planned for her.

Blue Ravage isn't too shabby.

As mentionned, MMC's "IDW" Roadbuster here

Finally, the X versions of FT Soar here.

Blue one looks really nice, digging the translucent blue wings and clear red beak.

Sadly the knee/thigh clips seem to be exactly the same.

Looks like X-Transbots are reissuing their version of Wheelie with a bit of an overhaul.
https://www.facebook.com/DaimChocRep...64129630604138

Might pick this up after I see some production reviews. I like the sculpt but everything I've seen/heard/read about the original run makes it sound like a horror show.

A few niggles aside, XTB really picked up their game with Windcharger and Beachcomber, so it'll be interesting to see what happens here.

Don't know these people except as a customer of things like Quantron, but that's tipped me over with Hellfire and am going to trust that it's legit.

Sounds like Omnigonix Spinout's a dud.

Quote:
Omnigonix Spinout was delivered to us today, sadly the quality of the product is not up to a standard we would expect of a product retailing for 59.99.
If you have ordered Spinout and would like a cancellation on your order please email and we will sort it out for you asap!
We are currently working with the wholesaler for a solution which may see Spinout sold at a very low price to clear the item out, It is a shame as the design is very nice, its just the execution and quality of materials used that have let it down

Watched a review of it today.

It was very comical and scary at the same time.

Very funny on how CRAPPY a product can be and how many things flopped or popped off.

Scary on how you may pre-order and pay good money for a total piece of sh!t that gets released a year later.

I am very sorry for those that were unaware of what this might be [people ignored the KFC warnings] and may be stuck with it.

Like Sunsurge but don't think it looks bad in this one when posed... at the right price, suspect some buyers will be happy.

Maketoys veers off in a new direction with these sheets and bots here.

Looks like their Powermaster Prime homage is a heavily stylized anime G1 take.

Their MP-like Despotron might have been aborted and moved over to this new re-branded line.

Shots of a similar-styled Bumblebee also present.

IIRC MP Despotron was removed from their website, probably to be a part of this line in a more stylized version?

Designs are bit too anime-esque for my taste, but I am waiting for actual figure shots.

Carnifex up for PO at BBTS---185 USD.

Far cheaper than I thought. I guess Kapow will be...140/150ish pounds?

Reasonable for a Star Saber size 3P thing. Ten year old me would be ecstatic at a crack at Overlord, and the side-by-side does look very good.

TBH the WST style one scratches the itch, though.

I see MMC Carnifex is up for pre-order (September release estimated) at Kapow for 159.99.

Not a bad price for such a huge high-end figure. Can't wait!

I don't give two flips about Overlord, but that is a pretty figure.
