    Not sure why you think that. Their first release, Soundwave, is an original design. Even their follow-up announced releases (Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe) are new designs.

    If it's $20, I'm down for a train Bumblepuss.

    Still waiting on them to do an awesome legends Prime with a trailer.

    I wonder if they bought this guy's design or if they are maybe KO'ing it...

    They were trying to sell 3D printed ones for some absurd amount. Here is a link to their FB page. Passiontransformers

    Not too fussed about HOS stuff using the existing designs 'cause in fairness some were a bit shit, BUT there's definitely scope for something like a WW1-themed set of characters. It's just the 'plane characters that suffer really. Old planes were flimsy pieces of crap.

    Totally into this, especially since Centurion is a character. Always happy to see some HoS love.

    I kinda hope that it is based on the Passtiontransformers designs as they have a Prime and Ratchet design already. Granted we already have MMC's Knight Morpher Commanders but still....

    Oh yes, finally some more HOS stuff. Hope they come out with other characters in the future.
    Maybe you're thinking of Mech Fans Toys?

    Agreed. As a HoS fan, I welcome any new toy designs from that comic series. MMC has moved on but I'd love for them to return to making toys of that aesthetic.

    Same here and smart move by these guys. Perhaps, MMC will pick it up again if this is successful

    That looks MUCH better than I expected! Great details & proportions, and I really like the cheerful headsculpt!

    (Also, looks like the small panels hanging off his back are meant to fold up.)

    Nice! I've wanted a toy of that guy forever. Wonder what scale he'll be? Do these guys just do legends scale stuff? I hope not- but I'd still grab him.

    Great to see another 3rd party Legends company that's open to doing something different and not just working their way through the same tired checklist of characters from the '84-'86 part of original G1.

    Looking lovely! The arms are a little stubby, and I’m hoping the shoulder panels can pivot a little, but if he’s at the usual Mech Planet price range I’ll pick him up for sure!

    Hopefully this opens up the doors to more characters in this line. Shockwave, the Insectitrain and, dare I say it... Revolvertron? :eek:
