TFC Toys Project Ares Nemean Color Prototype Image

TFCToysNemeanColor
Striaght from the weibo page of TFC Toys themselves, we have our first look at their first upcoming unofficial Razorclaw figure, Nemean. Nemean is shown here in color plastic unpainted prototype. He is also shown in his combined torso mode of Ares.

This figure is slated for a 4th Quarter 2013 release. What do you think thus far TFW? In the realm of unofficial Predakings do you already have most of your Predacons in hand? Are you waiting for preorders to drop? Or are you holding out for Project Ares? Sound off in our 3rd Party Forum!

Yeah, this is gonna be perfect. Thanks for hooking us up TB77

Awesome job trailbreaker

On point TB77! Are the mods going to merge the other thread with this one?
Megatron31
You sir make one hell of a meathead setup.

Not to mention those badass photoshops
Jehsee
Very nice. Thanks for doing this!
Trailbreaker77
Finally TFW is working again I will pull the other photoshops over from the other thread and PM a Mod to lock or merge the threads.

Updates coming if TFW stops crashing on me.
CURAMEN
For doing this, you deserve a...

Awesome job, TB77!

Nice and organized thread.

Awsome digibashes. So quick question, when are we to expect preorders for this? I thought I heard something about this week possibly?

Our TFC insider (MMC's Griffith) thought it to be very probable to see a preorder in a week. That was a couple days ago. That's all we have to go on.
Cyclonus79
Cool. Thanx.

Hmm, those connectors on the shoulders still look kinda like their not-Energon connectors.

I'm confused, isn't there already a megathread?

There's a large thread... but it's useless. Whoever started it doesn't update it forcing everyone to dig for pages for what should be first-page news and pictures. This is now the much-needed official "Mega Thread". Hopefully a mod will merge the previous thread with this one soon.

This is a brilliant set up. You have evolved the "megathread" and have brought order to chaos. Great job TB77, thanks.

P.S. I get the feeling TFC is going to sell these things as close to cost as possible to try and crush MMC. It won't work.

Ahhhhh, gotcha.

I swore that I would never purchase 2 combiners of the same character again purely because of financial reasons...but I don't think I can resist this. If I have to choose one I will probably stick with MMC simply because I feel like they value me as a customer/collector more but I can't believe how much I am loving nemean. If they drop their price to be competitive then I will do my best to get them both. Fingers crossed.

I love the layout, Trailbreaker77! Nice work. I hope this becomes a standard moving forward! Nice touch, making a special area ON THE FRONT PAGE, for QC issues Hopefully it almost never gets used.

Trailbreaker77, are you going to digibash Ares too?
CVprowl
I have to say I love the look of razorclaw, but the blacked out images of the other bots still scare me.

Certainly hope it doesn't work... and it's still looking pretty good for MMC. I'd like to see them succeed, it's really a shame there's 3 companies competing over such a niche product. A lot of people see that as a "good for the consumer" situation... but it's not good if it hurts a company I want to see continue to make products.

I was all for MMC's Predaking... but this reveal made me realize that I wasn't really happy with the proportions of it. While I prefer MMC's sharp edges and size (I've a feeling Ares is gonna be ridiculously huge), the proportions of TFC's Nemean really appeals to me... in all 3 modes, though I admit, the lion face is a bit on the "cute" side. I really feel that Leo-Dux is MMC's weakest link... and that's really too bad considering it's the core of the figure. TFC really came out swinging by showing a strong core first, before anything else... which is the way it should be.

Disappointed because I've already prepaid for 2 MMC figures... but it seems there's a lot of people still on their boat, so I don't think I'll have trouble selling them if needs be. I'm still waiting for more info before solidifying my decision.

Agreed, but the blacked-out image of Razorclaw is also scary in comparison to the prototype...
Sentinel
Nicely done sir.

Hopefully we will see preorders on these guys pretty soon.

I love the way TFC razorclaw looks but blackbird really annoys me, so in this case I want more info before I commit. I wish these companies would render an image with a height guide, it is easy to do.

this gives me hope.
Transmetal
The digibash pics are awesome but to nitpick, I think the ears should be the same color as the face too. If Razorclaw is good size I'll probably buy him just for his beast mode. besides the kinda cute head I love everything about his beast mode way more than Leo's. Owing 2 not-Predakings might be kinda crazy though.

I don't think those are ears---look at the torso mode pics---the mane halves can slide outwards to make the mane bigger--it's extended in some pics and not others---and the "ears" move with the mane. I think those are mane parts, with the ears being the smaller, lower-mounted projections more on the sides of the head.

That, or his ears come off of his head when the mane extends.
Transmetal
Yeah, you're right. I mistook them for ears.

Hey! You're back!

Hope all is well with the family.

Like that scene from Russell Peters, I doubt there would be any significant discount and they'll try to get every penny from this brown man. They have something in store just to do so.

I've PM a Mod to merge the threads might have to try another Mod. I created this one due to requests post in the other thread.

No, I was not planning on doing a photoshop of the torso mode. I'm currently working on a TFC Superion background with the new add-on.

I'd love to see that when you finish it

the way the mane pulls out and the weird button on top (not to mention the smushed face) really bugs me. the dead space with the slider to either side of the head looks odd.

That picture is...so awesome. Loving everything about this mold.

I am really leaning heavily towards this one. I actually hope he isn't bigger than MMC's. I think their size is perfect. I dont want this to be MP size.

In the words of Griffith: "tfc's is freaking huge!" which probably means their main lion bot is significantly bigger than Leo. He may very well be MP sized.
Transbot90210
The TFC offering looks very Anime while the MMC version satisfies my American animation itch more. This lion looks like a Bacugon (or however you spell it) drawing. It is not a bad thing but as I mentioned in the MMC thread; I think TFC will appeal mor to the Manga and Anime crowd and MMC to the comics and Amercian animation fans.
Zavien
Welcome back transbot, good to have you back
zfarsh
You know, that combined mode head sure looks a lot like the one from Bruticus, doesn't it?

Gah, that may be the deal breaker then. Guess i will have to wait to see size comparison pics. Thanks for the info.

I had a feeling the baby would be.

Leos are handsome and beautiful people.

I went the to MTL Toycon with two babies. SMOG saved my 3 year old daughter. She dove into a bin of TFs. Hahahaha.
Transbot90210
Is she going to be a Leo? lol Well then, how appropriate seeing as we are currently going through the battle of the two Leo's (Sorry UT, you were never really a part of this race)
seali_me
That's a good reason to buy one now. LOL I'd recommend TFC from what I've seen so far. Hopefully it continues that way.

Boo to you Seali. I'm MMC all the way.


Maybe one day when all is said and done I will jump on to the TFC version but it is still way too early to tell. If trends hold true they will do something to put me off al la Black Blade and 6th member drone/chest shield/requiring a upgrade set to make it look like superion.
