    That's...underwhelming. It doesn't look like a Fanstoys product.

    I don't think this is Fanstoys. Looks VERY Gigapower. I think someone's taking the piss.

    If it is FT I'm underwhelmed but I'll wait till I see an actual product and not a drawing before writing it off.

    I'm in the camp of not feeling the chest design… maybe it'll look better once a prototype s shown, but right now drawing-wise, I'm not a fan of it

    If this drawing stands, I'm just sticking with Mp08. This is less accurate than Mp08, and I don't need that, taller or not.

    I think we need to wait to see what dalianjj says about it. That doesn't look like a FanToys design.

    Sorry, Fanstoys...

    you've been SO on target with ALL the other DBots, this is one YOU JUST CAN'T take design liberties with. This is NOT close enough to being Grimlock to go with the rest of the line you have already created. WTF is going on???

    The chest looks off and he shouldn't have those large semi cylinders on the outside of his legs.

    I wouldn't say freaking out, concerned would be better. Yes it's a drawing but it seems an odd direction to take both in that Dalian has always announced new figures and the aesthetic is off.

    I'm sceptical.


    Or the oversized KO of MP08. If it ever gets released.

    Nothing on weibo, so it might be a fake.

    not gonna fully judge until we see a full proto, but this looks way too busy to fit with the rest of their line. hopefully a physical representation will look much better.

    and hopefully they cut back on the detailing a bit to fit in with the animation and the rest of their dinos.

    Looks like a GigaPower design to me. Not really impressed.

    The chest looks so bad, this will be the first Fantoys figure I will pass on.

    Unless they fix the chest. But wow this i don't like.

    Despite what everyone is saying, I'm looking for to this despite what the initial drawing looks like. I didn't like any of the other initial drawings but the end figure was still superb.

    Agree this looks more GP than FT. Not liking it so far.

    Chest is too small maybe? And the lower legs are totally off. Not sure I like the dino claws either.

    The image is hosted on Fanstoys.com, so unless someone else set up a dummy website only to trick people into thinking this is FT, it's FT.

    As for the design one thing I don't like are the claws, way too curved. How many fingers did he have in the cartoon, MP-08 has 3 right.

    Like others have said, I'm pretty skeptical that this is legit as it deviates from every past precedence from FT. They've rarely revealed a figure via lineart to my knowledge (Sever is the only one that I can think of) and dalianjj always does a reveal here. I'll wait to hear from him. If this is legit, than it's pretty awful. Definitely would stick with MP08 or the oversized KO over that...

    What initial drawings? Were there others beyond Sever?
