    BadCube just dropped a hint on their facebook page for OTS-08, the next release in their MP "Old Timer Series"

    The first post said:
    is it just hot

    Then followed by:
    or juSt uS

    our company is going to a new direction, making kicks from now on, seriously

    Speculation currently is that they're doing Sunstreaker, given the two capitalized "S" in their second post.

    While they're assuredly joking about making shoes, the "shift in direction" could be going from minibots to AUTOBOT CARS?

    Very interesting given that Sunsteaker has to be on Takara's to-do list, and we have Omnigonix floating out there . . . somewhere. They have a prototype in gray form, but nothing for a damn year

    I am not sure how BC's aesthetic will work on cars. The engineering is there to do anything, their guys are fucking genius, but the chunky, short, squat look works well on Minibots . . . not sure on cars.

    Well, they also mentioned in response to someone that they will get their wish in non-squat figures. I'm down for Sunstreaker from Badcube. Im guessing if it is, it will have accurate side windows, which is the only thing that bugged me about Omnigonix's.

    Edit: source of proportions comment

    Step 1 - Heroic proportions.
    Step 2 - An actual Countache (with additions)
    Step 3 - Profit.

    Another Sunny? I am SOOOOO down with that. I will be watching for pre-orders somewhere down the line. Now, if only TT would jump on the "Producing Sunstreaker" bandwagon (and follow very closely with Jazz).:D

    Thank goodness, as I have very little faith in Omni.

    This is really interesting as I'll be passing on Omni's huge windshield chested version. Bad Cube's engineering may resolve that issue on SunStreaker tho.

    Definitely interested in what they show. Up until this I was going to wait for Takara.

    Hoping for this. That was my only gripe with omni, then they shrunk his head instead of his chest.

    Before reading anything, I saw the Nike Swooshes were blurred out and thought they were doing a Swoop figure. Sunstreaker would be cool, but depending on how it goes, Omnigronix's looks very good.

    I'm glad! Spinout is not gonna happen. They took to long and I just really never had faith they were gonna release Spinout. Plus I liked wardog and the plastic was really good. So even if Spinout came out, I would happily pass as Badcube has released figures. I have faith in Badcube.

    As I said in the other thread. They are obviously hiding something like single pane windows on the sides. Still, it looks pretty sleek and seamless. Not sure how they are going to pull the transformation off.

    You snooze you lose, Omni..... can't wait to see what this Sunstreaker will look like.... if it looks any where near as cool as omni's... I may have to cancel my pre-order.... no doubt in my mind that this will be awesome....

    this will still be out before omni...

    glad someone else is taking up the reigns because that project went stale.
    plus, it's badcube. I don't own any of their products yet but all their stuff looks great and I love their style. just good news all around.
