    Going to keep my eye on this. I have the XTB version I like him well enough for a character I'm not crazy for. Unlike a lot of folks I think the XTB version does a lot of things right but I'm definitely open to an upgrade if it's significant.

    And an accurate head and properly colored hands.

    No doubt this will be far better executed than the KFC version. Better quality, better paint job, properly colored hands---ALREADY INSTALLED. No cash grab shenanigans involving inaccurate and badly engineered parts. @ibot & the rest of the gang at KFC should sit back, have a coke and take notes.

    All we need now is a release date. Rest assured my Kingorilla is on borrowed time. Going forward I'm strictly going Maketoys and Fanstoys for all my MP headmaster needs.

    I love both MT and FT too but not all of their offerings is to my likings. FT Dinos just didn't quite cut it for me and GP stomp...., Stomp lol.

    So glad I waited for MT Horrocons tho cuz as much as I like KFC, their Horrocons is horrible esp the choice of silver over the off white like in the G1 toy and toon. Like how the frack you dropped the ball on that one

    FT dinos are the bees knees as far as I'm concerned. Well done.
    But yeah KFC's Kingorilla was poorly executed. What they offered in exchange for LED light up cockpits and guns wasn't worth it IMO. That's a lemon where the juice just ain't worth the squeeze.

    @Spence Any idea what the hold up is regarding a physical test shot at this point? Silverback announced well over a year ago now.

    Didn't @Spence say multiple times already that he doesn't have an involvement in MT news anymore or did I miss something?

    Last I heard it was just that other projects took more priority over this one and so certain things can take longer than others. I would suspect to see a proto or sample within a few months now as this should be well under way to being worked on now.

    And yes, I am not working directly with MT any longer. I do still keep in touch and do get info from time to time but nothing like what I was doing previous. Sorry I can't be of more specific help.
