    IDK, however you see it, (and I was the first to call ballocks on his hands and feet) a triple changer with radically oposing forms been pulled off that good is indeed a feat of engineering, especially when it doesnt have a fuckton of panels, hollow places and holes *cough*mp36*cough*....

    You make a good point. I think 3rd parties are tasked with too much. For the majority of people to accept a 3rd party figure it has to be perfect, and then some. Comparatively no one really bats an eye at all the panel lines all over mp36 and the unsightly kibble, because, of course, it's official. It's like, you'd think the larger company that should be able to put more resources into a product would be able to deliver more, especially with the recent asking prices of mp's. Ijs, every Takara product I own, since like mp11 just leaves me wanting more.

    Back to the point though, while I think companies like maketoys, and fanstoys could do better, this is still a nice set. I like Snapdragon especially,and he specifically is soot on in terms of looks. Apeface's bot mode gets pretty close,and while the ape mode is very g1 it just leaves me wanting more. All in all, I'm confident I'll pick this up. The question is when?

    Truth be told, I probably wouldn't be collecting again without third party figs. I found out about them and started back.

    No man I meant when will I get them. They're good, but as I said I think some other companies could do better, that and I believe tfcon in July is gonna show ALOT of new products. While I like them, they're not priority pick ups, especially being from KFC. I'll wait for reviews, muddle it over, and perhaps pick both up sometime in August-November, gotta get the rest to my Fanstoys figures preordered.

    I mean I know "Wait for FT to do it" is something of a meme, but, c'mon guys, its not like they're going to make every figure out there. Especially B listers like Snapdragon and Apeface

    I'm curious more than anything at this point, but if that swirly gloss plastic is the final finish they'll be an easy pass, I don't care for that at all.

    Hey, it could have been worse, I could have said they were C listers like my favorite triple changer Broadside. Or Skids. They at least placed better than him :p . Mind I know comic Skids did more, but everyone's cartoon focused these days

    They're sadly on that list of "They showed up in did stuff in one series but never made much of a lasting impact" that a lot of Transformers are at

    It's the toys, man. The toys were the shizz. Horrorcon toys occupy a special place in many of our hearts (don't they? Don't they???).

    The toy commercials where they had these damned well-animated scenes of whatever characters they were pushing also captivated me. Pinnacles of Japanese animation in my book.


    Just look at that. That's all it took, man. Hooked forever.

    Do we know the final color scheme for these two yet? The reveal pics shows a pinkish color but I saw some prototypes where the pink is replaced with a dark red so I was curious about that

    I need that ape in my collection now.

    Please KFC, get your stuff together. I love your designs, and want to support you. But this DIY stuff will likely get old if you continue to skip QC checks.

    Well that kind of sucks, I really liked the pink for some reason. It just flowed well I guess

    This is via Benscollectibles on FB, originally from Weibo.

    I'm not very familiar with Apeface but is this a good rendition? Looks all kinds of fucked up. Good kind?
