    A friend emailed me this picture. It looks like a prototype of HOS Starscream will make to a show somewhere in China, the show promoters posted this sihouette on their Weibo.

    If it is not by Mastermind, it means there will be a new group making HOS figures for us! I just don't get what took Mastermind so long to make only 2 figures paying tribute to Guido's HOS designs. Now I am glad that someone is catching up.
    The figure's silhouette intrigues me a lot, seemingly these new guys built a much buffed Starscream, I dig it!

    I would be amazed if anybody could pull off the HOS Seeker model. The silhouette looks like an image from the comic rather than an outline of a toy.

    Now where's my Zeppelin Scourge? Or kite / wheelbarrow Octane?

    I do love the styling of the preview image, though, all tattered and running with ink. Hopes are high.

    but I hear some news about this one.....well, I have to say, if this one is really running as the same one as I knew....then he better dont waste money on this...

    I better hope MMC will make starscream someday before I die...

    These things are getting more and more pretentious.

    No offense to either op or his friend.. but yeah right... Gonna be just like the other third party "teasers" that pop up 20x a week now. HOS seeker design would be huge undertaking and probably as profitable as bankruptcy, even if it were a first time project nailed perfectly. To big/expensive and to few fans/potential buyers, imo.

    Well, at least it's not a Hearts of Steel Powerglide.

    I'll wait for Mastermind's. They've already hinted at it too.

    I love the idea of the HoS line being made given to us by MMC. Now another company is goign at it?

    Awesome, this competition should mean better items and lower prices.

    Bring it on. I'm suprised MMC didn't hit up the Starscream mould first. Thats 3 garunteed figure sales from 1 mould.

    I will still support MMC if they show something before these new guys go full swing and if the price is compareable or better.

    :lol  give it time :lol 

    Not getting my hopes up yet. If this is a new company then they sure didn't pick the most profitable design to start with.
    but I'm interested of course.

    I love the HOS designs. I would prefer to stick with MMC for the HOS figures, but if any other company can pull it off at a good price with excellent quality - bring it on.

    Mass Produce that very design and I would scoop it up.

    I am wishing for the HoS series to hit at least 10 figures. I like my collection to have bulk to it.

    So which Hearts of Steel designs are at the top of your lists? I'm hoping for a HOS Scourge with balloon add-on eventually.

    Hearts of Steel Scourge custom

    I would gladly welcome any design from HOS. It was such a unique concept and fresh take on the franchise - GIMME MORE HOS!
