    They're shooting for a winter 2012 release date, but a worst case scenario would be an early 2013.

    Thought I'd let everyone know that Armarauders is letting the fans vote on what weapon to be included in the first release on their Facebook page starting tonight!

    I've been keeping in touch with the guys and it seems that they're busting their asses right now to get these released ASAP.

    Their Facebook page actually is the best way to keep up to date.

    I was just thinking of this the other day. Has the comic started release yet? Is there an ETA on the figures?
    I'm a fan of everyone working on this project, so I hope it comes to full fruition.

    I visit their Facebook page daily looking for updates. This line has unlimited potential but the lack of toy updates is rather frustrating.

    I really hope we get some news about the figures soon. I was really looking forward to the toyline. Those are some awesome mecha designs.

    I was talking to the producer, Valent Wang, and he told me that this toy line will feature influences and homages to both MOTU and Thundercats plus a big influence from Centurions which you can see by the interchangeable weapons.

    There is still no official price but they are expected to release the main figure, the Bellerophon with the pilot, weapons for both and the Mech Stand in one package in Q1 2013. Go like them on Facebook and jump on for the ride

    I forgot about this but I am excited for the potential. I don't like that green mechs huge mohawk head sculpt but I really love the rest. The pilot figures look great too.
