    as it stands, that "Stinger" as he calls it is pretty damn sweet. Looks to have alot of Gundam parts on it.

    Its made by one of JD-P's friends who is trying to start his own toy making company. That thing is hand sculpted. He's the same guy who made the minibot WW Bumblebee for JD-P. Looks very nice. Very gundam-ish but I think he's trying to for that look to avoid any lawsuits from Hasbro/takara.

    Hey VP. Sorry the previous idea didn't work out. I'm "closing down" JD Productions as I've gotten too much trouble and lost too much $$ on the projects. Now finding a job and settling down for the moment.

    A few things on the figure. My friend isn't starting a company, his company has been around for 3 years but doing mainly non-toy related sculptures and stuffs. This one's not TF nor BB related but the transformation's inspired from Don F's design from The War Within series so I just got him to make me a few using yellow and black. He's gonna sell them as kit s and maybe completed ones but only in Hong Kong and Japan but I'll be "helping" him sell on my site. Not sure if I'm to sell the yellow/black (I call him Stinger :rock  since he's giving codenames to the other schemes) as I'll need to make a minimum order and place a really large order in order to get a significant price difference. So I foresee that it's unlikely going to happen guessing from experience and response from the Fandom. It's just too anime and non-TF looking to be a hit. :( 

    Oh btw I've listed one on evilbay so do check it out!!! :D

    LoL then they wouldn't be Transformers. We all love our TF designs and toys for what they are now. This is just something with a different twist to it in Japanese anime style. :rock

    about 7" tall in bot mode and 7" wide wingspan. The other colors will retail for about 15000. If I can get enough orders for my own "exclusive" I'd get a big dsicount and sell them at my own price under my own "branding" but I don't see that happening. Otherwise I'll just paint them one by one and put them on ebay to let fans pay the prices they are willing to.

    I'm still selling the last of my stuffs. Or maybe you can wait long enough I may hold a clearance for stuffs I've still got stocks for. Need to check if I still have the spear though.

    No problem. It's costly and hard to produce toys. Judging from this "Springer" though, I think he would have made a very nice one. Oh well.

    Heheh mebbe if I bug him enough to do one in his series he'll make one then we don't even have to pay for the sculpt. I can then try squeeze enough "spare parts" from him for a couple of sets :D
