    LOL Im against blue font. I'm sure something else got in the way, maybe Dikta production or new junkions. I wonder if they will chrome his tanker parts and the plane or go grey or silver.

    It's always nice when I can look in on a thread rather than stand on my back porch in my moo moo watching my dogs run around the backyard in their tutus. I'd welcome pretentious behavior if this was about something that warrants it but tfw is where we gather, discuss, geek out. Emotional jabs, I mean seriously. It's a toy, that som one else made. Haha the multitude of various preferences from TF fans is so vast it's mind-blowing.
    If only there could be some collapsed tech to make this scale with MP-10 truck mode, Supreme class jet mode, and still scale well with, at least, MP-22,,, I'd be in heaven. I like the idea of the 5th wheel moving like a 5th wheel. Better than UT in so many ways. Is there a render of what this might look like next to Provider? Side by side?

    Does anyone know how to reach "Keith" to get us some answers about this? I can't help but think of the shadowy figure boss "The Man" in Undercover Brother.

    I actually love provider. Just wish his head seemed more proportionally accurate , moved like a tanker, and smokestacks. Octane is one of the best imo. Semi to plane to badass looking con: I'll go with the theme and triple dip if there's a 3rd nice MP of this guy. The awesome thing i adhere to the most about provider is the essence of its truck cab just screams ROTF devy ROAR. KFC's gives a more cutesy vibe as opposed to menacing lol

    I just reread my post and realized I started kind of rambling at the end there. Poor wording on my part. I didn't mean to assume people have a problem with Provider. I was just (in my own inarticulate way) trying to ask those who prefer stratotanker to provider what they think the former does better than the latter.

    Yeah, there is something off about Provider's head. Not sure if it's the scale or the sucked in face.

    You are mistaken. Octane was featured prominently alongside Sandstorm, who already has a Voyager toy.

    You can see that both characters are the same height, so designing Octane at Voyager scale makes perfect sense.

    That makes no sense. A lack of shitty plastic quality is... good plastic quality. It's nice to know you respect Hasbro's production. :)

    Too small for sure. The seekers imo are about a half inch to short in bot mode. I see Octane being a bit taller than them.

    I'm interested in MP triplechangers that scale with Gewalt, who is slightly taller than an MP seeker. If kFC's Octane has an appealing bot mode and height, I'd consider it.

    That's a very strategically-placed KFC logo :p 

    Well, looking forward to seeing how they've improved things from the last proto pics shown about 57 million years ago.

    F$%king KFC/XTB keep doing that.
    Weren't some of the initial bot mode pics of Strato all deliberately pixelated and blurred?
    And they released black and white photo's of their fully painted prototype of Dante before eventually showing us the colour!!
    This is taking the dickishness of sillouhette announcements to a new level!

    Aarrgghh!! self-entitled disgruntlement!!!...I just wanna see the back of the plane... sniff sniff. :cry

    Let's all chill. New pics can't be far off. I "fuel" it in my bones.
    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that they'll have fixed the droopy diaper and skeletor plane-butt. Head/face ... maybe, maybe not.

    I can easily see someone on Shapeways making cover plates.
