It's looking like their Skids is up next.
And yet they've done it for months now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
anyone know: what were the last 3-4 xtb molds? im assuming their cliffjumper, their breakdown, ... not sure what else beyond that. Just seems like they haven’t made much but I want to confirm if that’s really the case.
Cosmos. Not sure what was before that.
Aegis and Paean, I think.
Thanks, those are the same mold, right?
They share about as many parts as TT Inferno/Grapple do.
Probably even less shared parts. The entire lower body from the waist down, and the backpacks are completely unique parts.
Well, Hoist is usually a remold of Trailbreaker, and Aegis and Paean do share some engineering, but like others have said they're pretty different. I don't have Aegis, but I do have Paean, and aside from the fingers falling apart (they're little, and with fully articulated fingers, but no pins) I'm pretty pleased with him.
Some news for y'all, even though I'm not in on these Stunticons because I didn't like the look of Breakdown at all, they were too small for me and I like DX9's more...
According to Robotoybase.com they've got Flipout "in stock" and are expecting to make him available for shipping in 10-15 days (the same period also applies to Generation Toy Copter aka Blades in case you're in on that set). We all thought that Savant was up next and imminent, but they're not listing him as such for this retailer anyway. We'll see what happens, but I've done plenty of business with RTB and they've usually been pretty honest with me, with the exception of one TFC Seacon thing that they eventually made good on.
Lets hope that is true.
It's really only the bonet, hands and shoulders they share, everything else is unique
Looks promising.. finally.
Eww, that page needs more peach.
Teaser from Ollie + packaging (X-Transbots MM-IV Ollie - MP scaled Wheelie)
No yellow striping on Dead End. Excellent
Nice but i expected to see Wild Rider in that box
That sometimes works but it can also backfire. I absolutely love my UT Brawl and Swindle. They are two of the nicest most G1 accurate figures in my collection. They’re glorious. But the rest of their Combaticons are a stinking mess. I’ve pretty much abandoned the set altogether and will keep Brawl and Swindle as individual characters in my display. But my UT Bruticus will never be finished.
That’s also why I won’t be committing to any other combiners till I’ve seen at least renders of all five figures in all modes, incl the combined mode.
Same here, Brawl and Swindle where fantastic but i ended selling the whole set to get back part of my investment. Really pissed off with that one.. i love to keep those two but whatever.
The worry on the Stunticons is Motormaster, once we see him would be easier to decide.
Well, we know how they look (in robot and alt mode) from day one. Combined mode too.
And there is no way to know the QC before release, even if they are released close to each other.
