    is it just me or does that design strongly borrow from the 3rd party not acree valkyre warrior?

    they look very similar, i mean they should, but i mean it almost looks like hasbro just ... bought the mold and tweeked it. or ripped it off ...

    on a side note, anyone else notice the weapon storage on the hip? chromia had it too and so does AoE Crosshairs. i hope this becomes a new trend as it looks really cool!

    I guess we are looking at different toys because I see 2 totally different robots.

    Also, a third party can't make anything without taking the intellectual property from Hasbro for the character likeness.

    I wouldn't blame Hasbro if they stole every worthwhile 3rd party design. What are the 3rd parties going to do? Sue them? Not likely.

    Well, they all borrowed heavily from the custom toy from Botcon Japan years back.

    (someone in another thread said the person who did the custom went to work for Takara... ? )
