    I don't know if this has been mentioned, but X-Transbots has opened a new English web site at X-TRANSBOTS

    This site has pictures of all current products, and sections for upcoming products. They mention their Tyrant (Galvatron) and Survivor (Wheelie), and have sections for upcoming triple changers, posable figures, combiners and "movie" toys.

    Is the artwork on Survivor's page actually an original one? There's a certain Alex Milne's feel to it...

    If only they could hint at improving their QC. I'm not paying 3rd party prices for a Galvatron with two right arms or a Wheelie with parts that need to be shaved to make them fit.

    Practice time is over.

    Yea, isn't X-Transbots known for shoddy work and being sort of bottom of the barrel for third party figures?

    I think it was their Devastator add-on parts that were so horrible? Maybe I'm wrong.

    And WHEELIE of all people gets a new figure while Galvatron just gets an add-on set? That just seems so wrong.

    Their Galvatron is not a add-on, it is a new figure.

    I am ready for their Wheelie to come out. I like the Powerglide despite the QC on the arm. I don't play with my TF's I just display them.

    How big is their Wheelie?

    I ask as I got one of the other third party JizaiToys KO Wheelies - it's pretty big (Deluxe sized, with diecast) and has good engineering.

    Should be the same size as their JizaiToys KO Powerglide: small deluxe, no diecast.

    The Wheelie is the same size as their Powerglide. I had the Superalloy Wheelie you are talking about but I sold it. It was just too big for my collection (insert thats what she said joke here)

    Little update from X-Transbots facebook page. I asked if their Survivor (not-Wheelie) recolors, and they confirmed recolors as Dion and Shadow Striker! You may know these were the recolors of the G1 and Legends Wheelie toys.
