    Damn, that looks good. Seems I have a trio of Monsterbots to buy in my future.

    This is a busy company. No released products but how many announcements and prototypes do they currently have?

    I know of Repugnus, Grotusque, Doublecross, and Roadbuster that all have prototypes like this. If they bring out G1 Whirl it might be mic drop.

    Man, even if I don't get the whole team, I'll have to get Grotusque. Nothing says awesome like a fuchsia flying gerbil dragon.

    Its seems like a nice update to a G1 era character but the lack of inovation on the head and tail make this a pass for me.

    Grotusque has the best bot mode while double cross has the worst IMO. Repugnus is right in the middle in terms of bot, and I think his bug mode may be the best monster.


    Long story short even if you can't fully get behind these guys in bot mode, their monster modes are amazing


    Update: this company is making me eat some of my words. The more I look at their figures I like all of them more and more

    Part of me feels like the look a lil squat (like when you vertically condense an online image) well repugnus does. He could definitely have used maybe an extra half inch in the midsection as well as yellow bits in the midsection like the G1 toy.

    Double cross looks off too. Something about the proportions I don't fully agree with. But maybe I'm just nitpicky


    Overall each figure looks great separately and immaculate as a unit.

    I thought I would be getting at least one of the bots, but the alt modes on these look ... too friendly? So no go for me.

    At 100 bucks roughly I sincerely think you should give these guys a shot atleast get 1. Support the company and see what they put together. I only really like Repugnus. Double cross and grotusque are worthy of getting but maybe later.

    I really wanna support them for their Overlord and prime

    That's also my assessment. Megatooth is helped out by the fact that he had the best monster form even among the original G1 toys. I'm surprised by how much I love the odd purple, white and grey paint scheme Flypro has. Both in mold and color he just looks sharp as hell in bot mode. Feilong I wasn't sure about and while I still think he falls a bit short of the others in both modes he has really grown on me. I started out thinking that these guys were nice little fringe figures that I'd never get, but just like Maketoys' Contactshot their evident quality has moved them from mere curiosities to figures I absolutely intend to purchase. Well, I HAVE purchased Megatooth, just don't have him yet. I'm very eager to see what the future holds with his company.

    Honestly scourge kinda impresses me more, but I initially wanted repugnus more, which is still considerably impressive. Both are great!
