Maketoys Mobine / Unofficial Fallen Color Pics and New Features Revealed

MT_PCC1_SAMPLE_05
Maketoys have updated their site with new images and information on their Mobine - unofficial custom take on The Fallen. The numerous sockets around the toy have finally been explained as being Power Core Combiner sockets - Mobine when transformed forms two tanks, evidently one of them becomes a mass of guns and other weapons that can attach to Power Core Combiners using their combiner ports. Presumably looking at that last colored image the weapons also combine to form limbs for a main figure, which we are assuming is the second tank that has been shown (yet to be seen in color).

As for the colors, Maketoy has diverged from the usual Fallen style of black and brimstone for a more military deco. Perhaps like their green Giant a black version will eventually follow.

So this guy is basically making PCCs fucking awesome with a weapon back that transforms into a tank from a bunch of biggass weapons, on top of a base armor figure? With the name of Mobine?

Hell yes.
deathsheadII
one man army lol! prefer the look without the tank add ons , not sure on the colours either! might buy and paint it
Mr_K
From what I can see, it seems to me that until now we had only seen the larger 'tank' in all the prototypes and the two smaller robots (that we now see in colour - robot and alt forms) somehow combine with the main 'fallen' figure.

EDIT: I think the camo paint apps are gonna have to grow on me :S
BScorpinok75
Interesting!
The Dark Seeker
So glad I have a spare Heavy Tread for this
Sammael
I have to admit... I have no clue what's going on in those photos. Can the extra armaments be added to the main robot, or are they just for Bombshock and Heavytread? Can the two tanks combine? WTF?

to me it looks like the get attached to the main bot. Think they are using Bombshock and Heavytread to show that the parts are compatible with the PCC's.

Ah! I never got into the PCC transformers so didn't realize the other two robots were from that line. I thought they looked pretty bad for 3rd party transformers though, lol

same here. I find them to be boring and don't like the colored connector peg things that are visible in robot mode and alt mode. also didn't like the fact that the drones would just pop off randomly.

Mobain looks awesome!

Dammit, those pics make me almost want to rebuy Bombshock. Almost.
daimchoc
I think/guess the whole set when combined will have a different name. This name might just be related to that alt mode, which is the lower half of not-Fallen.
Secretcode
...I need Heavy Tread.
dj_convoy II
Busy little bugger.
ToasterPrime
I hope this does well so it can fund something else later.

it's a pass for me.
jimmynguyen41
Also the armor has pcc ports too maybe to allow integration with the existing pcc limbs
exclusacon
So who is the guy in the last pic? is these just add ons?

Mobain/Mobine is part of not-Fallen.

Not exactly. If you look at the vehicle mode shots. He forms out of that big tank. Which seperates into the accesories that can also be used by the power core combiners. Chances are he parts forms to do everything. But its more like Blocks of Equipment. So I think that could actually be satisfying to Change around and Test.

There is a second Tank in grey prototype also in this set. That becomes the main body of the mecha.

I'm really tempted to buy this thing now that its not in fallen colors, as a new crazy third party character.

Timely now that Takara just about to release power core combiners themselves.
exomega255
WOW brought on preorder. Maybe more than once.
wm10k
I dig how useful this tank is, I am very eager to see the main bot and his respective modes.

I gotta wait til this guy gets his black furnace deco though.
miscreant
I don't think i could want this thing any less.

Those of you who do, knock yourself out.
exomega255
you don't need PCC to have fun with those weapons though. you just need bots with 5mm peg.
ORIO
Iiiiiii like it!

Thanks

ok correct me if Im wrong..this is the bottom half of what will become a full figure? there is another half to the bot, that has not been release yet?
exomega255
IF he is a weapons/tank/robot parts former, it would be VERY interesting to purchase TWO of him, and arm his robot mode with........ himself.
Grimwing
There are two tanks. Its just that the only one were getting color shots of right now forms Armor and Weapons. While the main body will come from a second tank that is shown in prototype.

When I look at these photos there is something kind of comic book Roadbuster about it.

Oh gotcha now...Thanks again...this is on my radar now...
Crown
If we get the Fallen's color scheme in a later release I might get it, but this as it is, is a big pass for me.

On a plus side you could use him as a Pre-Fallen Fallen.
Crystal Convoy
The Fallen's colors or GTFO.
GAUGE
after studying all the proto pics (both color and grey proto photos), it appears the fallen is entirely a partsformer.

you can take him entirely apart and make 2 tanks or just have him become a bunch of weapons. So this makes him not a transformer at all, but rather he's more like a MUGENBINE type of toy.

Guns.
StayingInTheBox
This figure looks cool enough, but not for me. I have no interest in PCC figures or add ons.
GAUGE
So, since he's more of a mugenbine type of toy, i guess you can buy a few of these and make an even bigger robot

That was actually a pretty fun statement, but truly interesting.

Anyways, want this badly
theestampede
so even the fists plug in with pcc ports? If everything on this guy is interchangable than this figure is going to feel a bit like a glyos, which definitely appeals to me.
GAUGE
He's a freakin'

MUGENBINE!!!
kibble
I'm still confused as to what exactly what this is and does...is the last pic a Legobot too or is that an actual transforming bot that the Lego weapons just attach to? I'm rooting for Legobot so I can easily cross off another expensive 3rd Party product from the list.
Kraken
I'm intrigued, it's not yet a must buy, but I'm certainly interested to see where they're going with this. If the price isn't too bad then I might be digging some of my PCC's back out of storage.

FFFFFF. This. I have no interest in a Fallen toy but a toy add-on that makes PCC even more farkawesome? Don't think I can resist this one. XD
Bountyan
Hm. Might get this.
Hyre
Good god, that's gorgeous. Shame there doesn't appear to be a robot mode for this set, can't wait to see the main figure.
Jacer
Looks really awesome! not so sure how I feel on the paint job. I'll be getting this guy though regardless.

I think it's something more like Protector armour PCC style. The painted tank is the partsformer component, compatible with pcc figures (and drones?).

My guess is that rather than a 2nd partsformer, the unpainted tank is going to be a PCC core figure that has a 3rd torso mode in the same was as regular pcc leaders (is that what we called them? I forget lol).

There were earlier preview images where we could clearly see a 2nd head in the chest cavity.

I think the parts combine to give a FP Protector style suped up armour mode for the base figure, which makes me hope well see similar options to armour up the other PCC figures too
Timesynch
Agreed that the final bot mode looks vaguely IDW Roadbuster-ish. We need a good RB figure that's bigger than a Deluxe. This bot mode looks great but the size probably won't cut it for a Classics Wreckers display. Still, hope they do make him greenish and orange a la RB.
process
I can't deny the new color photos look good, but I was hoping for a more Fallen-y deco. In general, tan and forest green are some of the least interesting colors a Transformer can sport, in my opinion.
Kraken
Y'know, the more I look at him, the more of an IDW Fortress Maximus vibe I get off of him, definitely want to see coloured pictures.
Líder Optimus
Being one of the few people around here who liked PCC, I am excited about this!
Sully
I wonder how compatable he'd be with the TFC World War II transformer tanks that are on the way for the Power Core transformers? They too work on Heavythread. With some conversion sockets you could make something nice! They might possibly addon to the Fallen as well?



The basic idea could work.
gothsaurus
Yeah, it would be AWESOME if they had the forethought to tool in an extra head... so the (presumed) autobot green and tan guy that looks kinda like Roadbuster would have his own head. Then the Fallen black version could have its own unique head, too.

Crossing my fingers.
