    Zeta haven't released Blitzkrieg yet?

    *looks at shelf*

    Pic taken 14th of September:

    You sure? UK retailers got theirs in weeks ago and US sellers seemingly took the cheaper/longer sea option so are still awaiting stock. You're basing your opinion on incorrect facts and ignoring Fanstoys ridiculously slow release schedule.

    What's also worth noticing is that all but 2 of those shots above of FT version are renders. At the very most Air Raid is a proto but I'm not 100% sure about one of the Silverbolt pics. History dictates if that's the case those guys are a looooong way off. But that's what Fanstoys do, it's like a bad joke. Renders to piss against the proverbial lamp post then sit back and concentrate on the other 16 figures they've got in development.

    FT really f'd up the droop snoot on Silverbolt.

    [​IMG]

    The part of the snoot that droops should reach all the way to the cockpit and take the front visor with it like on Silver Arrow.

    [​IMG]

    Of course, the visor should retract into the snoot too,

    but I'll take 50% inaccurate over 100% inaccurate. Another reason to go with Zeta.

    How tall are the released figures to the existing MP Seekers?

    Mine obviously don't have stock heads either so would be a touch taller.

    Thanks! Yeah I was just hoping to be sure the Zeta figures would be the same size as the Seekers at least, LOL! Which heads do you have? Shapeways?

    Yeah Shapeways oversized TFC set. They are more my cuppa tea aesthetically but just a bit too small. I'll replace with Zeta's cartoon heads eventually.

    Edit - they look about the same size as Maketoys seeker heads so depends what your thoughts are there. Personally I'd wait to see what Zeta do first. In the perfect world if the guy that did the Shapeways set could upsize his design a bit itd be spot on.

    only thing holding me back is the head. If they make a cartoon head i'll buy the set. They probably will.

    I can only speak for myself, but I think the faceplate thing is more about having options than not liking the regular face. In the most recent pictures it actually looked quite good. I may change it up depending on my mood or how it actually looks in hand. It's generally a benefit to have the luxury of choice in these things.

    Yes, it's totally wrong, as I ranted about months ago, but at least it doesn't "pinch in like a mosquito nose", which looks bad in BOTH positions. We have two nose choices, both overall bad, but each also extra-awful in their own way...

    Considering how many zillions of toys and models of the Concorde have been made the past 40 years, from $2 toys to $1000 models, it's incredible that Zeta and FT seem to have simultaneously done "among the 2 worst-looking attempts at a Concorde nose ever".

    The lips face is damn good. In my mind though Superion has a plate, not lips. The studio ox look works fine for me since the cartoon was basically a blotch job with no real definition. The face plate though is something I always associated with Superion.

    Ah shit, you know I didn't even notice that. If I had a proper computer, I'd totally CAD up my own nose piece (with retracting visor) to replace Silver Arrow's; at the very least, the hinge being in the right position means I'd only have to replace the nose and not the whole fuselage like the FT Concorde. Still, that pinched-in nose is gonna bug me anyway...

    The old droop snoot, while stylish, seems incredibly over-engineered. Was it really worth all that for the advantages it gave?

    Impressive to see in action though, like a real world transformation...
