    Warden is gorgeous. And falls apart every time I touch him. And doesn't transform so much as disassemble and badly reassemble. And his proportions are wrong with those foot upgrade. I NEED ONE I CAN ACTUALLY PLAY WITH stat

    Probably have to be Iron Factory then. Though he might be too small for you than.
    Who else besides Maketoys is using IDW designs?

    In a perfect world, someone would rig up a set of hip ratchets and fold-out stands that allow TR FM to maintain the "legs flipped up in back and opened as buildings" fanmode. Then, they'd make little "floor" pieces that would fit inside the legs, allowing TMs to stand around inside while still allowing the legs to close for transformation, kind of like what Castle Greyskull had back in the day.

    I just snagged Fort Maxx really cheap and I'm looking forward to the DNA upgraded hands and feet, I'll have to keep my eye out for future accessories but the DNA upgrades definitely dress up the bot mode big time.

    Not sure why Metroplex got some goodies - multiple versions of Slammer and Six Gun, different head, small guns, radar, big gun too. Haven't been as much for Fort Max, makes you wonder if they'll bother with the tank guy for Trypticon, Full Tilt?

    Suppose part of the problem is that since Metroplex came out in 2013 it seems most of the third party guys have moved on to almost exclusively doing masterpiece stuff, so CHUG doens't get as much attention as before.

    Still would like a proper central tower.

    I must have missed that Cog news, any images on the go?

    I don't have time to dig it up, but they have a sword and gun by Transformers folk hero @johnbonhamatron and in the official renders you can see a faint silhouette of Cog. It wasn't news (yet), so it passed by most people

    If his CW Prime kit is anything to go by, the Cog will be amazing!
