    "Spastic" isn't slang. It was an official term for a neurological condition that was then reappropriated as a derogatory term for that condition and similar neurological conditions and mental disabilities in the UK, British territories, Common-Wealth and related countries around the world.

    That's probably why an official release of this character will NOT be called "Spasma"/

    I remember BSF talking about the lack of a premium paint application on Kingorilla in his review. It didn't really sink in to me until I compared it against my glossy FT Sovereign.

    I haven't had Sovereign since I sold mine back in January. but I did get Mp Artfire days before I got Kingorilla and was amazed at what a work of art Artfire and its targetmaster is with all the beautiful paint applications and then I got Kingorilla and I was like meh...

    IN case this thread hasn't heard it enough, I REALLY WANT THIS TO HAPPEN!!! just want to say that for this subject to remain relevant lol

    If this is just an upsized fans project apeface with a few retools then the gorilla mode will be crap.

    I don't think we have to worry about that since the bot mode doesn't look anything like the terrible FP one.

    Only thing to worry about is whether or not this comes out at all :\ (I'll wait, Maketoys. I'll wait!)

    All kinds of alternatives will come out eventually, we just need patience as usual, or just pay 130 bucks for a placeholder.

    i hate the term especially as i have a good friend who has a son with learning disabilities and can't walk unaided ..have heard him called that before when at the park ... can't believe that people still use that horrible slur

    What made you sell it?

    What makes you think that? Was cupola an up sized version of FP chromosome? Obviously not. So I don't see why they would do it for apeface.

    In the US, it's not a slur. The etymology is different. It's like in the UK, where "Oriental" as an adjective for Chinese, Japanese, etc isn't racist. The terms developed in parallel and/or split at some historical/cultural junction in terms of meaning/use.

    However, it's all down to how we interact with each other.

    I have no idea why you would think it would be that honestly. MT hasn't had any association to FP or their designs since their designer did M3 for them I don't think.

    Heres my from my post on page 7 here on Kingorilla:
    "I used like the finish with their(KFC/XTB) figures with the shiny plastic (Scourge for instance) which this figure lacked. this figured seemed like it was meant to come out 2014 and seems really outdated and tacky to me in a lot of ways. the proportions looked really bad to me in person and its massive head could barely be moved around. Kingorilla looked really ridiculous next to other Mp-10 scaled figures with its shrunken lowered legs and massive shoulder width. as I said, this figure seemed like a Unique Toys figure that KFC released before their Blaster. after all KFC/XTB has done I felt it was a major step back"

    Im sure you probably already know this but not sure how much relevance it has to association with one other aside from both having the same owner

    Ironically that description fits an actual gorilla :lol 
    I liked all the modes on kingorilla, and the colours and the plastic don't really bother me, but the exploding hands make me nervous and the quality is good but doesn't match the price, i don't care if the lights influenced the price tag, it's not worth that much.

    Most of the time when the toy is released, the thread to which the toy belongs have less and less activity over time... Most people unhappy with the current option will be more active in the other thread alternatives as well...

    I hope Silverback is still an option... I like the silhouette that Maketoys showed to us...

    BSF is not the one talking to Maketoys. I'm pretty sure this rumor came from TF Con when Maketoys didn't have much of a presence. It may or may not be true but BSF isn't the one talking directly to MT.

    I don't think Bobby Skullface ever said he talked to mt about closing shop.
    Someone on that thread said they talked to two retailers that said mt is quitting.
    That would suck Maketoys is an awesome company, top notch. I was hoping their lack of new reveals at TFcon was a new strategy for them ducking KOs and cockblocks, by not saying anything until right before a release. Not them quitting.
