    That would be very difficult to do outside of inventing mega hyper color change paints.

    The "Cups of Innovation" add-on set will also include "Poo-Monster Chet," young Tony Stark and will retail for $19.85. ;) 

    All joking aside, Steelian Scientist info will be forthcoming when it is ready. Our main focus now is getting Feral Rex into your hands as well as finalizing and preparing other upcoming projects so they'll be as ready to go as possible after the Feral Rex team.

    So after Feral Rex is completely out, then you will reveal all the Fembots? Once that is done, will you reveal this mystery figure, because there is Seraph too. I pray for the mystery figure, before Seraph, i need to save up for Seraph, so...

    This may be more misdirection from MMC, but on their Facebook, when they announced the cancellation of Percepter, they said that It may be sold as a PSX exclusive as a made to order piece, like Felisaber. So If that's true, then after they have their fun, they may still offer these teased figures if fan demand is high enough. they only mentioned Percepter at the time, but at the time that was the only one teased too.

    Dammit. I dislike this design. Never was onboard with this 'percepter'. But Damn if he doesn't look good in plastic..... his hollow legs still bug me. close 'em up and maybe shrink the scope a bit and it would be a solid figure. I hope if this figure comes to light, "As Percepter" that they fix those bits.
    for the legs, all they need to do is make the black tank treads on the legs swing around to the inside to cover the gaping hole, and problem sorted.

    the joke is fun, but I grow tired of feeling "left out at the party". Jokes are fun, and all, so is the mystery. but it gets old, especially if some people are 'in' on it. dragging things on becomes wary. I'll let this fall off the radar till it becomes relevant.

    I suspect there's some pieces omitted to obscure the true nature of the project. While those big empty legs are easy enough to dismiss as necessary for the upper legs to collapse into, there's likely more to it than that. MMC has very rapidly become the frontrunner in the 3P game; I have to believe they can recognize those empty legs as a less-than-ideal design choice.

    I haven't been able to work out where the rear beast paws for Quickswitch/Sixknight will come from. There may be additional digitigrade leg parts and paws that timeshare that space in modes where the robot thighs don't need to occupy it.

    Even if extra parts occupy that space, a door to obscure the empty legs would be nice, especially if they do in fact offer some of the red herrings as PSX exclusives.

    Holy heck, how did you manage to get that awful quality? :confused: 

    Here's a couple of better-quality screencaps I took:

    Huh...

    I wasn’t interested in the past, wasn’t IDW enough - and now he looks more IDW; yet looks similar to the Generations mold... which is already voyager sized.

    Hmm.

    Unless this guy is much much more IDW than revealed in these drawings, and decently priced .. then what’s the point?

    You can pay $30.00 (or less? Not sure what he’s worth now) or you can pay $90.00 or so for a similar looking one?

    May as well trash all your Generations Springers and pay for that crap FansProject made (which is also probably in the trash).

    Just initial impressions of course. Maybe @LazyAza can fill us in or share some secretz or something.

    I was looking at the picture for a while on my copy and it looks like a stray remold. It has the large shoulders and I could see the hip skirts being smaller versions of the mold.
    If they could somehow get a pharma from this mold I would totally take it. I would also take the brainstorm if it looks good enough.

    @SuperGiantThing -

    I’d definitely take a Pharma.

    But yeah I mean, he’s looking awfully IDW-ish and not that dumpster fire of a mess that is shown on page 1 from 2013.

    We’ll see I guess? He’ll have to be pretty magical for me to want to spend more than double to get a “barely better” figure than the generations one.

    Already have the T30 Brainstorm, so I'm not really interested in this. Maybe future repaints.

    Who's the white Turben supposed to be?
