    HAHA yes, given DX9 are doing big bots (like Omega), that MIGHT not be that far off... Hopefully the same connector with Metroplex too

    Not sure what "priced competitively" means to you, but let's take it that it's a special case for the XTB Stuntis due to stolen designs. Plus XTB owns their own factories so they can pretty much control that cost as they wish.

    Que sera sera; I'm right now much more keen to see more of the DX9 guys than think about price.

    I do hope they fix the weirdly places hole in his elbow joint. I'm not a designer but that makes no damn sense.

    Well their Omega Supreme seems to be pretty cheapso why not wonder about the pricing on these too?

    As i said, "priced competitively" is subjective and relative to FT's original price, Gabriel is priced pretty nicely. I wouldn't exactly call it a "wowee" type of price as compared a $40 MP-level combiner limb though. And there's also the element of DX9 wanting to stick it to FT for OS.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love cheap DX9 stuntis. But right now I'm more interested in what they look like because if they don't look like what I want, it wouldn't really matter too much to me if they are competitively priced or not.

    Fantastic. So if my grammar was poorly labeled, I meant if the price of DX9 is close to XTB, then that's a pro. Sorry if that was a bit offensive to any finer sensibilities. I appreciate quality, saying a company that makes transforming toys is just to be looked down upon when "stealing" from another company is fine. I think of all of these 3p companies as taking likenesses from official companies and the people that do KO, like weijiang; same park. I don't care, I don't judge. Lol it ALL seems competitive. So yes, I stand by competitive pricing. I also see differences in the Bots. It's fine either way. I look forward to more MP type Combiners. I appreciate the expertise, but it sounds to over analyze my biz. Im happy your passionate about supporting 3p. The Days of our Lives 3p soap operas are not my thing but I don't judge. I'm sure a ton of fans get really involved in toy making drama. Lol stick it to em

    Is there a reason you need to use a bigoted Jewish caricature to spam all the Motormaster threads???

    With all these menasor talks, aren't we forgetting UT combaticons?
    Haven't seen that topic pop up lately.
    I guess stunticons are cooler then combaticons.
    Guess the stunticons prices are so good that everybody are talking about them.

    Good grief.... well, now there's ANOTHER Menasor I need to keep an eye out for. Hope the big-bot reveal entices me better than XTBs. Also, I hope that reveal is real soon (like in the next 3 minutes.... because that would be cool.)

    Why would we be discussing them in a thread for a totally different product?

    I think he means that the UT Combaticons thread hasn't seen much life lately.

    Yep. That's what i meant.

    But it's so hard to choose from these 2 companies, dx9 or x-tb?
    DX9, give us your price already?
    40 bucks is hard to beat.

    With how well DX9 priced their Omega Supreme to undercut FT's Omega, I wouldn't be surprised in they at least come close to XTB's Stunticon prices.

    I personally don't mind if the hood roof and fender are the back of the leg but xtbs looks more like a calf muscle rather than being the lower part of the leg. Luckily we can wait and see what happens if we choose to. Either way, I need two sets for stunticons only.

    From what we've seen, this one is looking hopefully a little more Hasui MP than the XTB one.
