Maketoys announces "An Angel is Coming"

Maketoys have posted on their website a pair of teaser images of another upcoming project with the tagline "an angel is coming". The images shown hint at an unlicensed Nova Prime / Nemesis Prime from the IDW comics. The project is already at a prototype stage, and the prototype images shown indicate that the figure will consist of a core robot plus armor. The armor is an extensively reworked version of the Maketoy Battle Tanker, the core figure is a complete new design to interact with the armor though.

The text accompanying the update indicates that it will be a limited run item available exclusively through Maketoy's own store, with more details to follow. The update also indicates that this release will be coming later this month.

Interested...

Wow. That's no upgrade set.

There isn't a single damn piece from the RTS Optimus mold on that thing. It's BASED on it, but everything there is new.
divinecomedy
They are going to milk the battle tanker until the mold self destructs. Or till our wallet is dry.
Tiller
So uh, how many iterations of this trailer mold are there going to be? Looks like they just entirely ditched the Hasbro mold now and are making their own base figure.

Nova Prime? Seems like the backpack isn't attached in the back shot and goes with the whole angle vibe. Kinda looks bad in vehicle mode from the back. "Cybertronion" doesn't save this one from all the crap sticking out of it.
General Tekno
VERY interesting... it's a completely new sculpt that shares engineering with RTS G2 Prime.

Even more interesting - looking at Don's concept art for Nova Prime, it's clearly the same altmode (there's only a few small differences, but otherwise it's recognizably the same vehicle) but the robot mode is different.

EDIT: Found a pic of it online - it's clearly Nova Prime's altmode, down to the armored up mode chest being on the back of the trailer.

def nova prime..ya can see the wings on the trailer..color me interested..
Josh
That is... An odd way to do nova prime

But I'm certainly looking forward to more!

OH DEAR GOD YES. Maketoys does it again!

Looks a bit like Nova, but who knows. Seems to use a lot of the RTS g2 prime and battle tanker though.
Shatterblast
It's weird that they even started with their battle tanker and copied engineering from RTS Prime, the end result is almost entirely new parts. They could of just realized Don's design verbatim, it was already designed with a toy in mind.
Mr_K
Never been a fan of the Battle Tankor Prime aesthetic, so my interest is peaked because it's Nova Prime and MakeToys, but I wanna see the front of the figure before I decide I'm all in.

The pic of the robot mode definitely has 'armor' hands on over the usual hands, so looks like there is going to be 2 robot forms?
GAUGE
If the price is right, I'm all in.

However since the base figure seems to be a brand new figure, i have a feeling the price is gonna be a bit scary.
Alteron_Sheng
...ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNND there goes ANOTHER huge chunk of my paycheck...
Dang it, I still have to get the SG/Diaclone Magnus trailer, MakeToys, stop coming out with such awesome stuff!!!

Can't wait to see how they do the wings though (as the name implies they'll be present)
rodimusea
WHEN???
Valkysas
Was already posted in third party forum.
MyTea Boc
At first glance I thought this was a slight different battle tanker set for the TFCC Scourge, but yeah, that looks like they're making their own enhanced edition of RTS prime.

I have to say, I'm looking forward to seeing more of this one.
Housewife2000
Maybe they're taking a cue from his IDW history: cab turns into a white Nova Prime, armour mode is black Nemesis Prime?
hardreturn
so…this is how they're doing it? very interesting. i think i'll get this in addition to the other one.

I don't remember that in the comics (though, I haven;t read them all). The robot is definitely white with black aromor parts over it (at least in this prototype shot). As long as it looks differently enough from the Battle Tankor Prime mold, I'm in then!

NEW INFO


Check it out, Google translated the extra info from their site:

"Will be limited sale at our online shop under construction.
I am planning a late time in June was released, but the details will be announced at a later date."

--> Buy direct from Maketoys!!! June!!! That's some turn-around!!
Cheem The Rup
I hope the final result will be similar to this.... (edit: no, it won't seem like this lol )

SG Roadbuster
I have Mighty Need. hopefully someone makes Jhiaxus and Grindcore soon, Nova will have all hid Dead Universe peeps
Monari
Kinda wish they'd just bought that Nova Prime prototype and mass-produced it. I'm a little tired of the Battle Tanker to be honest.
TheGreatScrotum
all in.

It looks pretty cool. The second picture is a repaint of Battle Tanker.
deaculpa
An angel is coming. Great.
Is a Computron coming?
Transformed
I wish Maketoys would show Computron before teasing new projects
Mikeatron Prime
damn, and here I was thinking nothing grabbed my interest and I'd be able to save some cash. Oh well I like Maketoys stuff so I'll be purchasing if I get an order in.

I found a teaser on MakeToys website [link]

An Angel is Coming...

It appears to be a Not-Nova Prime upgrade for the Generations G2 Prime mold, using the Battle Tanker as the base, along with several new parts.

Enjoy!

Thanks and welcome to the boards. Please make sure to update the first post as more information comes. Thank you again!

Did anyone else notice in the second picture that the base figure is white?

We haven't seen a white version of this mold yet, have we? Is this a complete original figure, then? The Nova Prime to their Fallen?

[edit] wait, I see - looks like it's not a laser prime figure in there - just very similar in general appearance. So new core bot, and different armor set, based on the battle tanker scheme...

Crap. Now I might have to buy Chaos, too.

I noticed that. I was wondering if they're going to make their own truck--that figure is long gone from shelves in Japan, and I assume this is true elsewhere too...
Fort Max
Interesting. Nova Prime isb probably something I'd go for but these teaser shots aren't selling it to me just yet.
deruberhanyok
Yeah, either that or they just got a big news scoop about a white repaint of laser prime and they're trying to confuse all of us.
Mr_K
If some missed my post on earlier on, this figure comes out near the end of this month - beginning of next and only available through the soon-to-be MakeToys store, in limited quantities.
Zavien
There seems to be always at least two companies working on one character close to the same. Isnt mmc working, or has a nova prime also in near future?

People have been waiting since 2008...
Knightdramon
Looks very promising, hopefully there's an armoured winged robot as well. Will probably get this.

Hopefully they'll see there's a market for this and perhaps release the other Primes as well.

They're going to have their own store?!

I need to head on over to Maketoys' website to check things out!
Zavien
I would love to get one of these and if you have to order threw the maketoys site, is there a way to vonvert it to english? I dont even know how to begin to navigate the site.
spartan 3764

I Think that means it was either meant to come out in June but has been delayed or that they'll start taking orders in June. Can't see them bringing this out so soon when chaos isn't out yet.
Zavien
Well that and I thought maybe Quantron was next in line.

Dood calm down just because a surprise project shows up and is getting released soon doesn't mean it has anything to do with another still heavily under development. They'll show Comp when they're ready. Unlike some companies MT are great when it comes to reveals.

Chaos has been out for over a week, he's even on ebay already. It's the US stock that takes forever to make its way over to the US etailers.
Zavien
Isn't that the truth! :-)
FatedLazarus
Wow, so much news! I don't know where to start. But I am definitely all in. I love Maketoys style and I have been wanting a nova forever.

I would not be surprised if they re-painted that new mold to match their shattered glass sets.

I will go ahead and set aside some money for their store launch. This is one limited edition that I definitely don't want to miss out on. However, I will be astonished if they can release this guy by the end of june considering how long I have had the Mobain sets on preorder.
