Megs kos are on the way now.
Of.course it was as while ago but still probably happening
Hell, yes. ^^^^^
News like that would certainly make some official TT fans gnash their teeth, hiss and howl in protest..
Some will probably be here tomorrow if they frequent this thread.
Sooo I've been puzzling over what's bugging me abt the face sculpt and I just realized it ... she's got the Melania face! - all high check bones and pursed lips - a feminine Charles Bronson if you will ... discuss!
Yes indeed, and their ridiculous prices are the reason all my official MP figures are either Hasbro releases or KOs. I like 3p but I pick and choose only getting the ones I really really want. My 3p collection is only Apollyon, Quakeblast, Downbeat, Willis, and the Badcube CE insecticons because they've either been reasonable priced or they were figures I wanted badly enough to pay the high prices (and even then, I catch them on eBay sales when I can). All of my carbots are KOs and so is my Thundercracker.
Arcee and Koot are figures I want badly enough that I'll pay the retail price for them (hell, I want an mp Arcee badly enough that I bought a Wei Jiang Arcee and have been working on modding her into an MP standin for quite some time) and really $100 for a carbot night be high but it's not outlandish. Mp Megs and Sunstreaker, I'll wait for KOs. I'm also thinking of picking up FT's Berserk as it looks like a great figure for not too bad a price.
The face looks fine, the only issue I see is the over-pronounced forehead but that probably helps provide a more solid attachment point for the swappable faces.
LoL, then apache should have an orange face and a bigger pot belly. They can do a 'First Lady' edition that includes a collapsible ladder to get out a second story window.
I would make Trump into an Omega Supreme so he can blast himself into space lol ... but don't get me wrong, I wouldn't kick Melania out of bed for eating crackers, so I'm not saying it's a bad face sculpt, just a tad bit off (but hey that's the case with most of FTs products)
Once he blasts himself into space he can travel so far and run out of energy and get stranded on another planet with no energy crystals.....just stuck in rocket mode. lol.
Haha ... I was trying to make a double reference bc he had a press conference about space couple days ago that was hilarious and completely bizarre ... Buzz Aldrin was having a meltdown standing beside him, sad!
I wish I could've seen a video clip of that.
Of course it would have to be gold OS, he will be the best, the classiest sentinel, believe me!
Ah TFW. 'Tons of F****** Whiners.' Your entitlement knows no bounds, nor your ability to obsess over the tiniest perceived wrongs. "If it isn't perfect I won't buy it."
In the immortal words of Curly Bill:
I think this figure is flawless as it is, and includes a few great options for display at that. Boob plate for curvy Arcee fans - flat plate for robo Arcee fans. Many Faces. AMAZING engineering. Great scale. This Arcee is easily your best concept right out the gate, that caters to a wide variety of tastes with the options announced. TFW whiners will fanwank themselves into oblivion over just about anything these days, and have even managed to ruin some stunning concepts (Gigapower Swoop anyone?) along the way.
So to Fanstoys, please don't ruin a beautifully sculpted design that has subtle feminine cues that harken to the unique place this character has in the mythos, and yet is still very tasteful and elegant and respectful to the character as a strong yet compassionate warrior. The very slightly curved abdomen adds a subtle touch of FEMALE to a character that is supposed to BE female (whether or not that makes any objective sense to a robot race is a completely different matter). The engineering looks like it might be among the most ingenious you have come up with. Thanks for a great design with great options.
I'd buy a "Dolly Parton" edition, jus sayin' ... my wife already hates the TF collection, so that would really push her over the edge ... (her fam is staying for the Fourth, she hid my display room - ahem, "future nursery" - like it had bodies buried in it!)
