    I'm still disappointed that the Lithonians don't transform. Alicon rocks though.

    Meh, the cartoony look does nothing for me.

    I refuse to buy the non transforming stuff. However, that Aligatacon will be mine. More than one of them, actually. Now I may have to track down their Arcee to go on my G1 shelf as well.

    WTS?! I've had Kranix and Arblus pre-ordered for months. Why haven't they shipped yet?

    Agreed...They should've "modernized" it for the Classic's collectors.

    Or at least found some mid-level point between the two. These are too much on the cartoony side. I kind of want the Kranix, but I'm having trouble putting in an order because it looks more like a cartoon figure than a robot. I'm a huge Alpha Trion fan, but I have yet to see a pic that makes that figure look good.

    The allicon is the closest towards feeling like a robot probably because it has to transform. It's still definitely more towards the cartoon end, but I can see this co-existing on my Classics shelf, especially given I already own and like their Quintesson Judge.

    Alpha Trion looks awful. Allion looks fragile as hell though.

    the allicon looks nice but the quality of the previous figures along with the high price point just puts me off this stuff sadly.

    The Lithonians and Alpha Trion look terrible. Silicon doesn't look too bad, but I'm definitely going to wait to read some reviews to see how the quality is on it, given IT's abysmal track record.

    Can you count the number of different spelling for "Alicon" in this thread?

    This. However I'm happy to finally be able to complete both my Quintessons and the 1986 Movie cast! :D

    The Alicon is pretty neat and the preview I looked at youtube seemed to make it a decent size to fit in my collection. But you know, it was the images of the iGear Sharkticon that really made me interested in picking up the Alicon.

    lol. neat.

    I did some of the box art for the first round of toys these Impossible Toys guys made, the Quint scientist and the Bailiff, and I think 1 or 2 others. After that first round they asked me if I could help with the designs? I was never totally sure, I believe there were always some sort of language barrier issues present. What they eventually commissioned for the second round of toys were "turn-arounds" (if you don't know, that's just a view from different angles so that you can see all the details and colors). I was paid decently and never thought much about that art again, because years passed before I ever saw it. I thought I had communicated to them that when they were ready, once they finalized designs and decided who they wanted to produce, I would be happy to throw in actual box art. I never heard from them again, and I have to say that i laughed hard enough to shoot some mt. dew out of my nose when I saw the Pic above. I think the toys are cool, but they just took the turn around art, photoshopped each front and back view into one pic, and used that as box art. The real kicker though, and this is what caused the Dew explosion, is that I drew the back view of alpha trion with a "transparent" cape so that the sculptor could see the details that would need to be sculpted underneath it, and I guess because of the language barrier, the actual toy came out with a transparent cape. :) 

    Awesome stuff, I applaud their efforts. These designs were purposefully cartoony, and were done long before Hasbro had even thought of classics. I don't want to let their cat out of their bag, so I won't give details, but I did that "turn around" style artwork for many other characters in the G1 toon universe. I also did the Allicon, Nightbird, the little transforming exo-suit, pretty much every quint there was (that's all stuff they have already produced). I have faith that the rest of those designs will still see the light of day as these have, years later.
