    Josh. Any comment on idw scale and what exactly that means?


    To me it seems like it varies greatly depending on what the panel is trying to show.

    It seems to vary but I'd look to any time Alex draws him for a good approximation (as he's detail attentive enough to pay attention to that stuff fairly well xD)

    Oh neat he's a test shot finally. One of the projects I heavily revised the colors of. Man he turned out even prettier than I'd hoped.

    Incidentally the guns appear to be on backwards on the bot sample there lol. You can detatch the blue bits from the white bits. And the housing around the guns can be left off entirely if you don't want arm guns on him.

    Well, Kultur's mould is pretty solid but I'm not seeing it as Thunderclash and the remould doesn't really change my perspective. It just looks off.

    Tyrantron was the big reveal from MMC at last TFCon, so I'm guessing we'll see this guy around September of 2018.

    Now we just need IDW Ravage, Velocity, Rung, Roller, Terminus & a decent 3P Nautica.

    Love this mold, but yeah, I would have preferred that color scheme. Heck, the pattern is nearly exact what I went with for my CW custom.

    If he's a retool of Kultur, I guess he's in between a Voyager and Leader class scale.

    If i didn't already spend for the Powercore(white) CW Optimus Prime with the Reprolables sheet and Renderformers head+gun, I would be so on this right now.

    He does have them in this render, so perhaps some details were left off of the prototype, much like with Calidus. That's what I'm hoping, anyway. :)

    EDIT: I now see the back tubes are actually a detachable section of the cannons, my mistake.

    Very nice remold, and if they decide to make Roller out of it I'll buy that as well. I can't believe this works as well as it does.

    i dunno about the Alt Mode, this looks like this is really intended as Roller. just like what MMC did to their Cyclonus/Jaegertron, Road Buster mold

    Man, I really hope the release look more like that render since it would be ideal. The current backpack kinda kills it for me.

    I also can see this as Roller but I hope they do a heavy remould for him (and release separate trailers for both of them).

    Boss said he was going to be shown off at the same time as Asterisk Cal but that didn't happen so maybe he changed his mind and is saving him for when he'll probably be finished and ready for selling at the next con. Least I assume that's what went down.

    Yah the arm guns are three pieces each, the external housing, the main white guns and the blue extender parts. By default the blue parts are suppose to peg on his back to evoke the cannisters the IDW design has in bot mode. But people can use them to give him longer arm guns too if they want like is shown with the on display sample.
