    There's also a sort of second mode that you can put the BC ones into where the hood sits flush. It's in one of the other threads and also on badcube's facebook. Not gonna link it because these will all eventually get merged.

    Are you trying to say competition? I am just making sure. Yeah I was commenting to a friend how it always seems these companies ALL know what each other are working on, as they always come out with the same things at the same time. I would have thought it would be better to keep your cards close to the vest when coming out with a new design. To me, it would make more sense to have the only product out there for a while before someone else makes one, if you want to make more money.

    Wow these figures are so clean, it's hard to tell the alt modes actually aren't real model cars... fantastic work there...

    Nobody handles retooling of Moulds better than Badcube. You really feel like you are getting two completely different Transformers with them.

    Brawn and Outback are perfect examples of this. So are the upcoming Gears and Swerve. They have done it again here.

    If I am to choose Badcube over Ocular Max, it is this feature that will win me over.

    Seems we have competing Trailbreaker figures and competing Badcube Trailbreaker threads!

    Who will win on both fronts?

    Man, they both look good. I got the email from BBTS thinking it was MMC, so I preordered the BC version by mistake. I went and cancelled it, but looking at both side by side, I'm not sure which one to get. If the BC version was slightly taller than MP Ironhide, I'd probably just stay with that (Trailbreaker was a little taller than Ironhide and Ratchet in the cartoon).

    This is gonna be tough for me to decide. BC and Mmc look really good.

    Trailbreaker Mmc
    Hoist Bc

    That's what I want to with I think. But BC available in September I just may get both Hoist and Trailbreaker. Then when Mmc releases their Tb, replace speed bump.

    Yeah, that hood/chest is the only thing bothering me about BC's. It sticks out from the windshield too far and doesn't taper down to the waist like MMC's. Kind of just looks like a big block sitting way out there. How can he see to take a whiz? ;)

    I think I may go Ocular max for Tb, and Bc for Hoist. Their Hoist is show perfect imo. I do like the face better on Bc Trailbreaker. But Ocular Max Tb looks more appealing to me.

    was thinking the same thing, maybe MMC feet as well but overall i prefer BC...

    i never pre-order anymore but will cave and buy a set once released... i haven't become so jaded as to wait for second releases... yet...

    I kept my mind open that there could be an MP Trailbreaker that I would think is a cool looking toy. And this is it. Outstanding job, BadCube.

    Ol' Trailbreaker is a pretty meh design, pretty meh character, and I had no urge to get one. And here comes this fella and it looks so great, I wanna get it. THAT is a sign of a good toy.

    But the surprise to me is Lorry/Hoist. That is a genuinely wacky design with a lot of odd elements, but I in no way in hell ever thought I'd want a Hoist, but here we are. And how clever to allow it to configure into two very significantly different bots. I actually think I like it better than Speedbump.
