I was sooooo sure on Calidus but I really prefer Hot Flame now.
after staring at pictures of this for months and having one sitting in my cart for ages. I finally bit the bullet and ordered this guy.
making this my first proper third party purchase.
I just couldn't resist.
that robot mode looks like Rodimus stepped off the pages of MTMTE.
and after the disappointment of TR and POTP Hot Rod/ Rodmius being G1 inspired. I needed something that looks like MTMTE.
Can't wait for him to arrive.
I got Asterisk Calidus recently and the main issue I have with him is he looks a bit stiff in a static pose. THIS guy, however, has that Rodimus energy coming right off him. The only issues I have seeing the photos are the way the chest sits, the grey ball joints at the top of the legs and the fact that his elbow areas and hands should be yellow. Minor cosmetic stuff mainly, chest aside, but I know this guy is my Rodimus for sure.
Is there any update on this fella? I've heard nothing official for a while.
According to my taobao seller, he's due to be released within the next week.
That's Great, thanks for the heads up, appreciated.
Sorry for the bump. Is there any update on the release? Trying to decide if I need to hold off shipping my Tyrantron stash until this guy is available.
I am hoping any delays they have had are to fix the hand and elbow colors to a proper yellow.
I saw some right out of box pics on Facebook a few weeks back. And they were still orange.
But yeah. I'm very ready for this guy.
And I could really use the money I'll get from selling Calidus lol
Seems like there's a delay, I haven't gotten any notice from my seller yet. Hmm.
Damn. I'm pretty much out the CHUG market, but... this is kind of too good to ignore.
Which means I might have to get an MMC Tyrantron too. DAMMIT GUYS...
With the appropriate design tweaks, most of the G1 Pretenders could be made from this one mold.
He made an appearance. My pics: (sorry for the quality)
Decided to grab this guy and the Calidus repaints unless there's something awful about Hot Flame that's revealed in reviews.
I got within 10 feet of that thing in the case...... the regret I felt over calidus was overwhelming
You know, looking at the hips and just the general look of this guy is making me love Calidus even more. I'm still likely to get both but I think I'd be okay with just Calidus.
Fortunately I skipped the ugly Calidus in favour of this beauty so I regret nothing. Just loving how sleek and well proportioned Hot Flames torso is.
I think if Calidus removes 4 or 5 of those thick sweaters he’s wearing he might look a little
Sooooo besides Blurr is this their only other release? Have they shown renders of other releases?
This thing was completely off my radar now I have the urge to own it...
