    So this will be released after like 2 or three other mp cosmos offerings? Good luck with that MMC. After the terraegis disaster, there's not much love for MMC.

    I... can't decide how much I do or don't like that. I'm reminded of the background MTMTE Cosmos who was inexplicably huge. Is this dude gonna be Dinobot sized? Because I might be okay with that... as a Minibot version of our tubby space-spy... a tad much, methinks.

    There's being late to the party... then there's being so late that you show up the next day after everyone has moved on.

    Are they trying to kill any merit left to the Ocular Max line?

    Lol

    There can't be much of a market now there's two options. It's not like he's a AAA character who could pull off that level of sales. Very odd choice and timing. Now if this was Warpath things would make more sense.

    We'll see if announcing another product now means that a Saltus test shot will be showing up next weekend in Singapore.

    You know how today, like years after Evila Star and Chigurh, people keep saying "I wish someone else would do an MP Astrotrain"? They're not saying this because there's a lack of options, they're saying that because there's a lot of room for improvement. Like, Chigurh is a pretty good figure by all accounts, but I think we can all agree that he's not the most G1-accurate Astrotrain in any mode. Fancy Cell's Transportation Captain is pretty spot on, but the plastic quality isn't what you'd get from some of the bigger companies and he's considered too small by many to be a real MP Astrotrain.

    So the thing isn't really "is the market too saturated with this character already?" as much as "Figure X of character Y from company Z is the benchmark, and if you want to do a version of Y then you better do it better than X." DX9 came out with Tyrant, who was good, but Sovereign sold out because most people thought FT did Galvatron better (it's always somewhat subjective, but you get the idea). DX9 did Allen and Open & Play did Big Spring, but people are still holding out to see how FT and XTB's Springers shake out.

    Now, this is getting long-winded, but I think the problem here isn't that MMC wants to do an Occular Max Cosmos, but ToyWorld and XTB beat MMC to the punch. The problem here is that the drawing they put up doesn't look particularly good. If the is OX Cosmos turns out to be a fantastic piece of engineering wrapped up in diecast and paint that looks much better than this drawing, something I might hope for since I have some issues with ToyWorld and XTB's offerings, then people will buy it and declare that it is good. But if they're going to release something that looks anything like that drawing people are going to stick with what they already have.

    Interesting. Not sure I need a 3rd 3P Cosmos. Spaceracer is chubby goodness. Klaatu is on his way. Even if it's MMC OM, and I love your aesthetic, it's still coming out late.

    Where is Drift, the Getaway retool of Rodimus, the two remaining DJD bots and the pet?

    I don't know what the figure will look like, nor am I suggesting that the final product will look better to anyone, but if you look at the history of OX PS boxart/lineart, they've not really been exact representations of the figure.

    Sure, and I'm leaving open the hope that MMC can put out something better. I can't stand Spaceracer's alt-mode proportions, and while I'll probably pick up Klaatu since he looks good enough to me, I can definitely see room for improvement. If the final version turns out to appeal to me more I'm all for it. All I'm saying is that, at this point in the game, this drawing is a pretty underwhelming reveal.

    I'm obviously biased but Astrotrain would have made much more sense. A 3P company could make a killing on him if done correctly.

    Even though what's been shown so far is just a drawing, I did a comparison anyway.
