Third party group Mach 5 have shared prototype images of their Gauntlet and Piston figures. These two are unofficial versions of Generation 2 Ironfist and Generation 1 Crankcase respectively. While they share bodytypes, they feature different headsculpts. Check out the images at the links above, or all together attached to this post.

Looks like IDW Ironfist/Fisitron.



Meanwhile you can use the G1 toy for the Fun Pub Elite Guard Ironfist.

Oh no not another new company! My wallet can not handle anymore!

Here is the pic from their FB:

That altmode silhouette looks spot-on. I'm very hesitant about the robot mode, though. Looks a bit too chunky.

These silhouette non-reveals really need to stop.
TheGame2K5
Im sorry if you are a new company show me a real image or GTFO. The teasers are bad enough from the big boys with proven track records let alone a start up company doing it.
Mechafire
Yay, another silhouette!
Transbot90210
You have my curiosity.

The company name plus the hardcore Back the the Future homage makes me want to see this company stick around.

Welcome to the fold M5, hopefully you stick around.
motorthing
The outline shot might be to cover up the fact they dont have a proto yet....just a pile of cleenex boxes taped together. life is tough for start-ups.........
echotransformer
Love the Back to the Future-esque logo!

A chunky sculpt could be just what we need!
VictoryLeo19
Very cool. I already want one.
TheGreatScrotum
Fantastic. I even enjoy the company's logo. Depending on price and full reveals, I'm interested in what Mach 5 has to offer.

Tangent:
I think we can safely say the advent of the affordable 3D printer / CAD software is upon us. In another 5 years, distribution of digital model kits along with color 3D printers, HD 3D scanners, and a collaborative online community will make the hobby exponentially more enjoyable.

Meh Impactor or GTFO
To be honest I dont care for ironfist but I hope they do well out of him
Zavien
I don't know much about this character. It would be cool though if the companies would wait to show something when it's an actual picture or digital something. the sillouette teaser kind of sux.
Bountyan
Won't care until they show a prototype. I could easily make an image with dinobots silhouetted and name it Bountyan Toys COMING 2013!!
Robogeek28
Hell, I'm still waiting for Impactor.....








Any day now
Shatterblast
Looks like the Demolition Crue line has a competitor. I don't really care who makes them as long as I keep getting quality Wreckers. But yeah, seriously, WTF iGear, where is Presser? I wish another 3P company would capitalize on their mistake and give us Impactor.

Agreed, if you think you have what it takes, show us. No one knew who you were before so what makes you think we are all going to hang on waiting for what you have to offer?

just playing devils advocate but what would the fun be behind just throwing a full reveal out there before they are ready ? there is obviously a product behind that blacked out teaser and their Facebook page says more this week, I'm just going to sit and watch before jumping on them.
TheGreatScrotum
It wouldn't be fun. It would be a bunch of know all board members posting about how to improve something they didn't take the time to produce themselves.

lol Yeah I was thinking the same thing.
Timesynch
If this is true, not-Ironfist is so bought. iGear needs to get off its ass and release Presser/not-Impactor already.
MyTea Boc
Am I the only person who isn't bothered by the whole silhouette thingy? I love a good teaser me. Ignites the imagination and keeps me guessing!

Good to see someone is finally taking a crack at making one of my most favourite characters of recent years. I'm psyched. I like the chunky proportions. Hopefully the full reveal will show us something awesome.

Fingers crossed the price tag isn't too outrageous.
Timesynch
People get too worked up over the whole silhouette thing. If the figure gets made, good, we get a (hopefully) cool toy of a character who otherwise wouldn't get one (and my wallet is lighter for it). If the figure doesn't get made (either the 3P doesn't come through and/or the whole thing was a hoax; jolly good joke), oh well, my wallet is better for it and there is always other stuff to get; no harm, no foul.
Gauntlet101010
The silhouette thing bugs me a bit, actually. That and blurred out prototype pictures. It's just very played out.
CVprowl
make sure to start a new thread when they have a prototype at least im not coming back in this thread. nuthin to see.
Primal Sabbath
Well, I'd have liked an Impactor before Fisitron... but I'll take what I can get! Will definitely wait to see some prototype shots and price. I agree about the bot mode looking a little too chunky... As much as I'd prefer Mech Ideas to supply me with all of my Wreckers, I won't take the chance on waiting for their Fisitron. Hoping this company makes a great figure!

And someone needs to give us a damn Impactor!
DJW107PRIME
Whatever another project I'll get excited when they've got more to show. I'm burned out on blacked out teasers.
LazyAza
So long as he's not that god awful fleshy color his original toy came in I'm on board XD
FoC Grimlock
Reminds me of iGears' "Dinosaurs in 2012"

Posters before products are just awful.
Slimaximus
I think all my money is being focused towards any and all wreckers!!!!!
deathsheadII
don't these comapanys realize that teaser silhouettes are sooo yesterday and piss us off more than anything i think teaser art / cad design or proto lead to much more excitement
Timesynch
Welcome to the magic of advertising. Good buzz, bad buzz; as long as people are talking about their product is all companies care about (aside from getting our money, that is).
The Crow
New Pic

The Crow
According to them he is around 5 inches tall.
Timesynch
Nice, and seems to be a decent size too (not quite Deluxe nor Scout, but somewhere in between, which befits a stocky character like Ironfist/Fisitron). Really dig the details of the tech drawings so far, and lightformer cannon being included is great. Hope this project sees the light of day.

I don't know. I haven't been following the comic books.


BTW, so it's called M5-01 Gauntlet. Cool name.
Robogeek28
Just checked out a review for him and while the original was slightly pudgy he wasn't nearly as bad/good as this guy is. Personally I'm liking the look of this version and plan on keeping an eye out for more info on him.





Now if only news of Impactor would start being released.
slugslinger2004
Even though I love Nick Roche's art, I wish they didn't base their toy off of it. The lineart here looks almost like a parody of Ironfist, or at least should include "SD" somewhere in the title.
Mechafire
I'm interested. I just hope it

A. Is of good quality

B. Isn't bullshit expensive
DisThunder
Same here. Looks pretty straightforward as far as transformation goes, and I like the bulk of it. But just like you said, a decent price and good quality will decide this guy, much as I want an Ironfist.
Steel
Awesome!

I'm a sucker for any cool 3p Bot.
Master Blaster
This has got Dillinger written all over it.
CZ Hazard
Looks good so far, colour me interested.

I thought the same thing. With iGear seemingly having lost interest in putting out Presser maybe he took his design skills elsewhere.
worldruined
Holy cow. I just want to put him in my pocket and carry him around all day -- he's that cuddly-looking.

Hope the final product turns out just as cute! <3
RDprime
This definitely looks promising. The only problem I see, is that we've got nothing to accompany the aesthetic if they are using Roche's design.

I'd love me an Ironfist, but I need the rest of the wreckers in that design, otherwise I'd just have this figure that is completely out of place. Sure there's Hasbro's Springer, but unless the remainder of the wreckers get made with the Nick Roche touch, it would feel incomplete.
Slimaximus
If this lands in the $30-55 range I'll bite, the lower the better though, and I hope we can see some more Wreckers that need proper releases: Whirl, Roadbuster and Rotorstorm to name a few
