Ooh, Apollyon looks awesome compared to the other two (IMO). Eyeliner on point.

Anyone heard anything about Lord Scorpion lately? coz i've got him on preorder from Kapow, but even Kapow hasn't heard anything from Iron Factory of late, they seem to have gone silent.

Have also ordered that one. Iron Factory seem stable enough and slightly better communicators than, say, Fansproject. I think it boils down to relatively small companies, the West not necessarily being the main market, and manufacturing during lulls in other orders to maximise profit / keep costs down.

New player (?) homages to Monsterbots... quite big, basically leader class. So... **** yeah. Hope the Repugnus style one comes to fruition even if there's a TR one to go with the Doublecross update.

In fairness there is a big difference between a Deluxe Headmaster version of Doublecross and a decent Leader Class one.

But I'll probably get neither.

MakeToys are doing a Jazz.

But then they're also supposedly doing Crosshairs, Darkwing and Dreadwind, so who the hell knows. Still not seen a colour version of Pointblank.

And TFC are bringing us RoadCaesar. Just one of the team shown as a prototype so far - no indication regarding Brainmaster capabilities.

Yay! It can go next to my TFC Hades. Is the combined form being called Trinity Force?

I hope not. It would be breaking from tradition for TFC to not raid Greek mythology for the combined name.

Planet X Crotchface. He looks like a gorilla-snake thing with a tail. Pass.

Looks like there is a mini figure, but doesn't seem to operate in a BRAIN SET capacity

I might be wrong, it's difficult to tell exactly from those pictures, but I'm left wondering what the point of doing the mini figure at all is if it doesn't.

That Omega Supreme is insane. Even if you could afford it, where would you put it?!

I would put it on a shelf. If I could afford it, which I can't, but if I could it would go on a shelf. I have shelves. He would go on one of them...
