    Found theese pics from wonderfest which shows teaser shadows and names for both human figures of Minerva and Ginrai as part of CM corp's Guttu Kurru line.

    CM isn't a "third party" BTW these will likeley be official licensed figures

    Bah. Get back to me when they make the robits. "They" could mean Hasbro or the third-party people, I don't care, even if I don't have the cash to be buying these third-party things willy-nilly. I'm not interested in paying a lot of cash for human characters. Again, bah.

    CM's corp isn't a 3rd party company at all. they are one of the major makers in Japan for exorbitantly priced Gokin items. their stuff don't usually comes cheap & they're often quite fragile.

    They're more well known for making various (often expensive) versions of the Brave Gaogaigar toys. So now it seems that they've also acquired the license to do new TF products in Japan. I'm not really optimistic on this, coz after having quite a number of their stuff, their QC is often quite crappy.

    I'd love me a Ginrai, don't care too much for Minerva, But I'm sure I wont be able to afford these when they come out. Unless they come out for like 6 months or so.

    Probably an easy pass. One of the things I hate about Gutto-Kuru figures is that they NEVER get the facesculpt right.

    Looked them up on HLJ. The price on some of the others in this line is 9000+ Yen.

    Agree with the first response--I'd prefer to see a real updated Minerva and have zero interest in the "human" elements.


    What he's saying is that he doesn't care who does it, so long as someone does it. It sounded to me like this was a direct response to nemesispringer saying CM wasn't third-party, though I'm sure he can clarify.

    FFFFFFFFFFF yes. I bought/built the last Wonderfest Minerva and Metal Hawk kits, so these will be an instant buy.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they did get ther license for singer tf stuff seeing how takara Tomy allowed the brave stuff. Also, their stuff isn't so fragile, I recently bought ver. 2 of gaogaigar, and its rather sturdy!

    A "third party" is another company that makes a product of which the product rights are owned by someone else. In fact, the term "third party" is actually more accurate in cases like this in which the product is actually licensed.

    So yes, in the case of Transformers products, CM's is most assuredly a third party. Though in this case, an official third party.

    That was an amendment i made afterwards to clarify.

    What the guy was saying is he cares abouts robots (real or third party) and that he especially doesnt care about the human characters made by third parties
