they are coming, they are coming!!!!
That retro look is pretty cool, though I was expecting a similar style as their previous stuff.

and someone in ShangHai already have their set, and time to review~
edit: I uploaded all the pics here...
Love the G1 style box, definitely looking forward to getting this.
Its been a very very long wait. But its about time.
Oh nice! I guess this means that they'll actually start shipping over the next week or so.
Had gone off the boil with this set but am starting to get excited about it all over again. Judging by how it takes to get anything in UK I expect to have this in hand by September =p
Very sexy! I guess we should be happy Devastator is a G1 toy and not a G9 toy
omg that looks awesome!
You can say that again. Damn, so many beautiful toys but my lack of space prevent me from getting the giant figures.
I was thinking these were due in mid/ late August. Nice. Like the box too. Still tgink the long arms are weird though.
That rage face is so derpy looking
I haven't been paying attention to this lately, do we know what it's going to cost?
Nice set. But that red Fansproject Bruticus KO (?) in the background really caught my attention. Anyone know more about that?
$356 ^. This box art is fantastic. Glad I decided to get onboard!
Wow - quite a few changes. Not-Hook's ladder is removable and has an articulated hook. The new head is transformable (Movable mouth, drop-down visor... I missing anything?)... There's something about the waist armor on the package (though, it's too blurry for me to read)...
Maketoys really pulled out all the stops. Kinda sucks for those of us who bit on the yellow version (and I still prefer that color scheme)... But I guess I'm glad they upgraded
The problem with that face is that when the mouth is closed, it's got a stupid little smile. This makes it almost seem as if the face is lol ing in an awkeard manner when the mouth is opened.
A guy here in another thread made a Photoshop image of the mouth being upside down and it worked a lot better, completely erasing the goofiness of it.
The concept of the face is snot what's wrong, it's the super poor execution of it. At least we get the original head which isn't great but at least it's not stupid.
That's TFCC's Nexus Maximus
Official repaint/remold of the Energon Combiner molds... But they added the Infinity Weapons set or whatever from TFC to it to upgrade it.
Very awesome looking set, and I very much dig the G1-inspired packaging. The alt modes are spot on, and the aesthetic in bot and combined modes just do it for me over Hercules (speaking as someone who owns and likes Herc too). That said, I can appreciate the complex engineering of the visor swap and moving mouth gimmick of the alternate head but it just looks off to me, aesthetics-wise ("Wanna play a game?" XD). Luckily they included the original, non-moving mouth head so I'll be going with that for display. Looking forward to getting this in-hand soon!
Here is the photoshopped face I was talking about:
See how that tiny change made all the difference? Why couldn't they make it like that to begin with!
Big difference when compared to the crappy 'goofy smile' real head:
Have had this paid for since the preorder came out. Can't wait for it to ship!
