    I'm just saying it's probably not going in my collection, but I appreciate the craftsmanship.

    Now that I have Contact Shot and have purchased the ko of the first two headmasters I feel like I have to get this.

    I just hope this didn't get placed on the backburner like Silverback and Reticle seems to have been.

    Grandmien screams 80s anime to me. Some how i ended up with one ko and one real headmaster from Maketoys. Ill probably get this as well as long as i can find a Dirty Pair Flash that scale well with this

    I may be stupid and it is already available somewhere but someone should post a worldwide toy fair schedule where all of these companies would attend. I know that some of that is reported on the front of the forum but it seems like there are more than what we know. If you are getting an update it is coming from there or Daimchoc basically. If they have something it is either coming from inside sources like iBot, dalianjj, or another company source or from these toy fairs. There is no need to ask and it doesn't lead anywhere. Companies very tightly control the release of information for obvious reasons.

    If you see a prototype like this one you are usually looking at a release time of 3-6 months depending on the company. I would tell you before summer we have a better idea of when Grandmein will come out. I believe this one and Wiseblast will come out this year and both are winners.

    So the unspoken rule is that you will basically see an update when an update is posted...don't ask otherwise. I have been "disciplined" by the collective before.

    It doesn't look like much has progressed since it was first revealed.
    Outside of Bounceback (which is a repaint and slight retool of an already existing mold) MT seems to be dragging their feet with their upcoming MP scale Head/Targetmasters.
    Silverback, Reticle, now this. The only reason I'm still watching for these is because FT hasn't announced theirs yet.

    The fact that it’s posted on their website is still a positive. MTM-14 means it’s in the pipeline if they follow their number order unlike fans toys. Another order in Taobao. This has potential to be awesome

    Looks very cool. I'm in for 1!

    I think MT usually do a pretty good job with all their bots, so I'm looking forward to rounding out my Headmaster & Targetmasters collection...
