    About the off-centre head, I'm pretty sure it's adjustable or something.

    The one pic of the torso mode we got yesterday, and the first pic here show the crane base bumped over to the left more, and the head centered.

    The second pic here shows the crane in the middle of the base platform, and the head similarly skewed to the right.

    I don't think there's anything to worry about here.


    Looks excellent. Wonder if he'll have a chest shield, or if they're going for the less-kibbley AHM look?

    Well, what I said was just that. That the head might be a little off to the right. It didn't infer that I was going to buy it or not.

    On another note, These are just the prototypes too. And even then the head is blurred so my statement might not be accurate.

    I just found it on page 14 and you are right. The head can be centered by sliding parts to the left. I'm interested again.

    These pics inspired me. I never paid over a hundred for any figures, but I could make an exception for these guys!

    Judging by the size and detail those.. they very well could be 100 bucks a figure ;;. Knight morphers half the engineering of one of these imo, and selling @ that just fine ><.

    Looking at these pics I can't help but hope that their next project will be an Omega Supreme look alike to pit against not Devestator. :drool:

    Knight Morpher's bigger, though. Pretty much Ultra Class, with the Voyager-sized figure, plus the extra trailer.

    Still hard to say what these will cost. TFClub, for the most part, has typically priced their productions on the lower end of the spectrum, probably only slightly behind FansProjects. I could see them asking somewhere around $75-80 apiece, somewhere around the same level as FansProjects' Warbot Defender.

    Regardless of what this costs, it will be bought. I've already been saving up a nice little nest egg for when this and the eventual new Fansproject stuff comes out in 2011. Can't wait!

    I really like these, and I believe I've said this in this thread before, but the back kibble is driving me crazy. I wish there was someway to fold it up more so that none of it was touching the floor. I'm still very interested in this set, and can't wait to see what the other figures look like. Devestator is really the most important aspect of the whole design.

    Swing it over his shoulder like a massive battering ram (or cannon, if you use your imagination a bit). An early set of pics shows that it can be done.

    However, the back-mounted crane boom and shovel are a direct translation of their G1 appearances, so you can't really complain to TFClub too much about that.

    Yeah, what these guys were tasked with was no less than pulling a Masterpiece Megatron. The only thing to back me off of buying this set, is if they announce "Not-Predaking!" :drool:

    Like what they have revealed so far. Still concerned about Not-Scavenger's lack of a cab, unless the scale of the designs cause the cab to be really small in relation to the rest of the vehicle.

    Whether this set is released complete or as individual characters, it will be worth owning. I like TF-Club's ambitious designs and patience for detail in both forms of each character, and the function each one takes part in with the combined mode.

    This set is probably the most amazing thing I have seen especially considering since the combiner parts are not add on they seem form from parts stowed on the bot or alt mode. devs hands look perfect.

    If takara wanted to be smart they would buy this mold before they lose out on this being masterpiece devs at 100 bucks a pop.

    right now im thinking this mold will be 50 bucks a bot.

    That would be awesome just to bring down the cost somewhat.

    BUT, would Takara even need to buy the mold? Couldn't they just be like, "Yeah, good idea on our IP. We'll do the same thing, but different. kthxbye~"?
