    Enough about the cars, ;)  I just hope they don't cheap out on these render details. Chrome details as they said in the video! This looks really good and I hope the final is like just like it.

    Yeah, they could completely mess up the transition from render to product, like Rising Force did with THEIR Motormaster. Yikes.lol

    I'd be happy to wait until well after CNY for MotorMaster if it means a fantastic product. Plus, I'd like their focus to be on getting the remaining carbots out before CNY. ;)  Given the delays with Wildrider, I hope the other two have continued to make progress in the meantime and will come out in quicker succession.

    I’m certain we won’t see motormaster or the others until next summer. It’s probab a good bet that motormaster is a December 2020 release

    Ironic, but since KFC blew our minds with a 1-month release for Simba, they’ve all gradually slowed down.....:/

    Over 2 years? No chance. I think it depends on Seaspray and Kup. If Wildrider is definitely out now I'd imagine Skids is next, probs by mid November? Seaspray is probably further along than Dead End so maybe Dead End after him and before CNY. That'd leave Kup and Dragstrip after CNY putting Motormaster at around summer.

    That's taking things slowly too.

    Elsewhere in comparison Zeta are saying their next three Aerialbots will be out by the end of 2018 although their 2 limbs are, engineering wise, incredibly similar to the first two and Superion's feet/hand/torso look to borrow heavily from Bruticus so they have an easier run in.

    You might be thinking of Fans Toys. :D 

    Barring unforseen natural or economic disasters, I'd expect a third car by January, the fourth just after CNY shipping resumes, and MotorMaster before end of northern-hemisphere summer 2019. All things equal, those are nice healthy timelines. There's no reason to take much longer than that.

    Hopeful but it's hard to say for sure. XTB have been promising accelerated timeframes all year and have unfortunately been unable to deliver on them. They needed to be releasing at least one product a month to make up for their backlog and from what I can recall so far this year we've seen Cliffjumper, Hubcap and Breakdown? With Wildrider hopefully releasing any day now.
    With Springer, Kup, Skids, Seaspray and Inferno (LOL plus his remoulds) all at or close to ready for release, plus teases for Autobot-X, Elita 1, Galvatron (and others I've probably forgotten)... the other three/four(?) Stunticons are going to fight for a place in the schdule. To say nothing of KFC stuff like new Junkions, Deathsaurus and various product names I don't even recognise.
    Below is a really good post from @luckyman76 from January this year, that outlines what was on the cards at that point and the hoped for schedule. Things have continued to slip very badly. And to clarify, this is not an attack on Keith, his company or especially luckyman76 - he almost seems to have some inside info on the companies progress and it's super valuable to hear that. Both KFC and XTB stuff ranks in the top three for me, alongside FT and it's impossible to decide who's at number 1 spot at any particular moment.
    I love their products and am content to wait for them, I just don't like to see people getting their hopes up for products that are going to be inevitably delayed. They'll all happen (even Dante!!!) it's just gonna take a while. The reality is delivery of more than one product a quarter is very rare for ANY company, (including official MP) and there's an ever-growing backlog of stuff. I'd love to be proven wrong and for XTB to suddenly pump out 6 or 7 releases before CNY, but honestly, Wildrider and Skids are all I expect before then and just maybe one more, though CNY 2019 is Feb so there's not a lot of room for a third.

    Good thoughts, Sgf. I think their Seaspray and Inferno were shelved in a similar way to Fans Toys' Trailbreaker. They might resurface one day, but I doubt they'd come out before they finish the Stunticons. I'm hopeful we get a complete combiner team out before next Fall/September rolls around. Any longer than that and they're rivaling Fans Toys for timelines. And I'm starting to think I might be retired before Fans Toys releases everything they've got announced so far. =\

    Seaspray appeared to be pretty far along as we even saw his accessories. No use to hold him back when the other options really aren't that great.

    It;s so hard to guess. Their Inferno seems to have been shelved and we saw full painted prototypes of him.
    FT shelved their Blitzwing and now Trailbreaker.
    XTB Kup and Springer have been moving in fit's and starts for ages and their Galvatron has been a render for years.
    FT sat on Hot Rod for quite a while but he looks like he's close to release now.

    I do expect XTB to prioritise their Stunticons over most of these but Skids and probably Kup will most likely drop at some stage during the Stunticon release phase.

    The biggest thing is the long drawn out process of actually releasing a figure. We were told two months ago that Skids was close, then it was going through final assembly, then we saw packaging... I mean it's got to be just about ready to go right now, but even if it was signed off and "launched" today, there'd be another 2 weeks or more before it showed up at retailers.
    PE TM2 Megatron's are pretty much done (we've even seen photo's of a wall of PE Megtrons in their shipping boxes) yet there's still no sign of it actually arriving at retailers.
    That final stage from: "Yep this baby's design is done, test shots have been seen and signed off and let's go to manufacturing" to retailers actually packing up stock to send to customers, is ages... anywhere from 3 to 6 months! Figures due to be released before CNY really need to be moving onto the production lines now.

    Oddly enough, I don't mind a slow feed of combiner teams, especially when done as nice as this. I get to appreciate each one on its own merits, rather than just Menasor's leg. Once I have all 5, the gestalt will take priority

    Have to admit that I feel this same way- when the individuals are good. With Unique Toys Bruticus, I for one really like them individually and still haven't combined them yet- but to be fair that's partly because I'm going to use Zeta Bruticus for combined mode. But on THAT note, Zeta Combaticons are the opposite, as I dislike them individually but can't wait for their Onslaught to arrive so I can combine them and forget the trainwrecks they are individually, lol. But with Toyworld Devastator, I like them individually for the most part but they've never been uncombined, lol.
