Maketoys Missile Launcher - Power Core Combiner Limbs

For a while now we've been hearing that Maketoys has a robot in production based on The Fallen, named Mobain. We'd seen that it had Power Core Combiner functionality, that the arms and legs could split off to form weapons systems or sets of limbs for the Power Core Combiners in their own right. Now it appears that Maketoys is splitting up the Mobain, with the limbs-tank being sold separately in two different decos. The set is named "Missile Launcher" and comes in "Jungle Type" green deco colored to match Power Core Combiners Heavy Tread, and "Marine Type" gray deco, ostensibly colored to match with Undertow. According to the linked pages on Big Bad Toy Store, they are going to retail at $54.99 and are due for a release in December.

There's still no word on the teased black deco or the release of the second tank that was shown in early pictures and presumably forms the core robot of the Mobain. One can assume from Maketoy's past form, though, that the core tank will be released separately and then a giftset - with the source-material accurate deco - will follow afterwards.

Just the first half? I'd bite if it was in black/orange fallen colors. But we saw this deco on MTs website some time ago.

Same here. I don't know why they're releasing half of it in two different decos...that are not the fallen deco.
Satomiblood
Wow, totally didn't know about these beforehand. I will say that the jungle camo set looks a lot better than the missile one, especially since it appears to have been made specifically for PCC Heavytread.

I'll wait for Fallen colors too.

Anyone at least mildly surprised by the listed ETA? That's the first Mobine releases plus the two Battle Tanker redecos all listed as hitting in December. I was figuring sometime next year before any Mobine release.

Jungle Type seems to a match for Heavy Tread's colors.
Nemesis251
I believe those are for the people that were interested just to boost up their PPC's. Another way to capitalize on the mold. Meanwhile, my shelf is ready for the Fallen deco.
Rodimus89
Nice Im thinking of getting the jungle type for my extra heavytread! Not 100% sure though
Kraken
Damn, that's an annoying way of doing it. Now I'm completely torn to which deco to get. I assume they're going to be releasing the core guy in the same deco's?
Katamari Prime
Interesting, NOt sure if i'd bite, but a neat idea.

But, just G2 Giant, MMC's awakening, it lets them get the kinks and QC out of the mold before they produce the guys everyone wants.

Looks cool.

No, sorry, I meant releasing each part seperately is annoying. I don't want to splash on the first part until I'm assured that the second part will be in the same deco (I'm sure they will, but...)

I'm not too worried about waiting for the Fallen deco because I'm considering using Mobaine for an IDW Fort Max which means that the Marine deco is ideal, but the green version is just gorgeous.

The Jungle type really looks great with Heavy Tread. So great that I'm tempted to replace the TFC Iron Army guys currently attached to him with this set - future MT core bot be damned (well, at least until the Fallen colored core and appendages appear).
deaculpa
Oh okay, they have both decos. I think I have to buy the black/grey since we know there's something in mobine we don't know about, and that he has a gestalt head we haven't seen.
Schide
Urgh. I want the Fallen deco.

I also want to know most everything about the figure before I place any preorder. Can we just get the full info on this at some point?
ConnorT
Man, this thing looks GREAT. Looking forward to both this and the Fallen decos.

I think you're right.

The real black/orange deco we saw earlier will be a standalone release most likely.

Probably not. I think the idea is that these colors are exclusive to the accessory pack versions, and the Fallen version gets Megatronus. In my opinion, here is what they are attempting to accomplish.

1: They want people to use these with other PCC figures without lessening the full set.

2: Mobine itself is Intended to be the Fallen. No one will want the full set in these other color schemes.

It makes sense when you really think about it.

They just kicked in TFC Iron Army teeth with this release. Heavy Tread look killer!
Ultra BuckNutz
This thing continues to perplex me. I don't mean to be dense, but first I thought it was PCC upgrade kits. Then they released the pics of the Black and Orange Deco which seems to be a standalone figure. Now it looks like they have decos specifically for upgrades.

Is the final version (in whatever colors) ultimately going to be two vehicles that essentially "partsform" into the Fallen. I'm fine if that's the case, I'm just curious.
Dr. Prime
These look really cool! I have PCCs and I am ok with them for the most part, but I just don't think they are worth buying upgrade kits for IMHO. Maybe I will change my mind if I get to see one in person

The ones posted here are just the partsforming tank that can be used as an upgrade for PCCs. They turn from a tank into arms and legs for a PCC. It's just half of the full toy being sold seperately.

The final Mobine should be two tanks. One turns into a robot, the other tank turns into his weapons that partsform on.
skiss
Its not weird or stupid for them to do this. Its pretty brilliant actually. This is a great way for people to just get the PCC add ons for their PCC bots. Smart move MT.
Atomatron
they gonna do any new minibots? i prefer their scale to igears

anyone know anything?
slugslinger2004
I like both color schemes more than what were teased to be the Fallen's colors. I'm not going to bite on either until the transforming tank is released though since I don't have any PCC's.
CyclonuS_ZerO
Fallen colors NAUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SCPrime
Bought heavy for iron army but ended up not liking iron army so i have a heavy tread which looks lame by itself. This set makes him loads better. Likely will get jungle set for heavytread.
TacomaPrime
So, these only work on the pcc combiner things, right?
Satomiblood
The jungle camo version would probably look better on PCC Bombshock.
Tiller
Goddamn Heavytread looks great in those shots. As much as I like these I can only budget for the sexy, sexy fallen deco.
Agent Adam
Wow, I'm totally sold on the Jungle set based on the shot with Heavytread. Looks like Steelshot gets to hang on to the Iron Army set.
jbz
awesome. Something to use with my Heavytread
sodawilly
Waiting for the Fallen deco too.

Those look so cool, I bit on both decos! Just hope that they go for a Mobine single release down the road :/
Lumpy
man, those looks really awesome. i might pick up both color sets just so i can combine and mix and match... fucking love PCCs.

Indeed. Thing is, Huffer works great as a replacement for the core of the Iron Army, at least until the Iron Army core figure is released.

As for this... Glad there's strictly limb-only versions available atm. Why? Because they look *really* good as PCC appendages, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that wants both a set of limbs AND The Fallen.

Heavy Tread is easily the best PCC out there... srsly... it's like all these addons were designed to suit him most of all.

But damn it MakeToys... why *another* release in December of this year? TOO MANY GOODIES COMING OUT TOO SOON!!!

BTW, wasn't there also an alternate way of displaying the appendages?

I'm hoping this is another instance of 3P items saying one date and then being wrong by a month or two... but really, with the rate new product is coming out, it'll probably hurt just as much then as it would in December.
Prime Evil
Will definitely be on board with the jungle set for heavytread. Just looks to good not to get.
Kuma Style
So, basically there are going to be THREE versions of Fallen from Maketoys?


.... shit.
slackerforhire
I was content with the Jungle deco, as the display of various PCCs armed with the Marine deco really wasn't doing anything for me. Then, I thought of Grimstone as the core bot. While the colors might not mesh completely, the thought of Dino-Pope with tank limbs is almost too good to pass up.

Dammit.

So torn...I want the Jungle deco for Heavy Tread, but the neutral gray of the Marine deco is much more generally adaptable to all of the PCCs (some of which are actually pretty decent torsos). Not knowing the future plans for the other half of the Mobine set is also worrisome; I would want a matching set, but I'd have to hope that they sell the other half as a standalone unit with the same deco choices.
On the other hand, I could just get them all, but something tells me I should probably spend some of the xmas budget on the wife...

His limbs have 3 decos, yes.

But I think the main core body is only in the proper Fallen scheme. At least, we've only seen a white prototype and one in his proper DW colors.
Bountyan
Pass. Put me in the "not buying these until the fallen colors come out" camp.
SurlyJ
I won't buy these, not because they aren't cool. Not because they aren't the right deco. I won't buy them because I don't understand them. Perhaps because when I read this thread this morning, first thing I did was look up what a PCC was.
Shatterpoint
Going for Jungle.
Rahvin
I dont care about recolors...but Ill throw money at the "notFallen" deco of Mobine as soon as there's a preorder.
