    I must have missed BadCube's Beachcomber. You gotta link?

    You're also assuming everyone wants to buy their stuff. You should never assume. Whilst Brawn/Outback are very nice I've personally got no interest in their small, stocky Insecticons or their huge Warpath so in that respect options are never a bad thing.

    That being being said this looks damn good. Hopefully they nail the colour.

    I haven't seen Badcube's version. I can't imagine it being better than this though. This is awesome!

    Wow, he looks good. Hopefully he'll get a nice dark blue paint job. I also appreciate the big ass heel spurs they put on him.

    There isn't one. If someone wants to limit their options, as silly as that is, is their prerogative though.

    I will be watching this one closely. Looks good so far.

    They'll need to give him a swappable electrum hand to mimic how Beachcomber looked in "The Golden Lagoon" episode.

    Needs a flower in the gun. Or an accessory of peace instead of a weapon.

    Very true.

    I'm in for Cubex Warpath but Insecticons and Brawn I'll give a miss.
    Your custom Insecticons have set the bar for those guys.

    So now people are spreading rumours of MT and Cubex Beachcomber?
    I thought MP 26 was Beachcomber? ;)

    ooooookay, now this is tempting! I've always been a fan of Beachcomber, and he feels like the kind of figure that Hastak won't be making any time soon.

    Yep Apollyon needs to be a big deal for these guys. Most of their efforts up to this point have looked pretty good at this stage but fallen short on actual execution (specifically paint/plastic choices and I think QC).

    Beachcomber and seaspray and powerglide are my 3 favorite minibot, and this looks great. Damn, too many things coming out this year...
