Looks yummy. Anymore pics of that combined mode underneath.
Here's some official panel pics and the prototype combined mode. And colour render of Ultra Magnus as well.
These guys aren’t quite Flame Toys to me. But remind me more of Ori Toys figures. That’s not bad. But they aren’t as impressive as Drift or that Optimus.
I think the add on armor is a beast. But the price point for the first figure is just too steep to begin with. I mean, Flame Toys pricing is backed by Chemical Attack which is famous for a lot of the Gundam Metal Build designs.
He looks like he will have limited articulation with the add-on. Hopefully, the final figure with paint will make up for it. Honestly, if I wasn’t a sucker for RID figures then I would probably pass on him.
Prime proportion looks good. Too bad they cut too many corners e.g no smaller robot cab...easily pass on Prime.
UM, I don't know, first I am bother by the ginormous Popey arm. Now, the red color of the shoulder stack doesn't resonate well with me for a RID UM. That red really stands out and the fact that RID UM barely has any shoulder stack like G1 makes it even more obvious. If that stack was blue, then it would help. But Omega Prime will suffer. Unless they give UM another smaller shoulder piece and make the red stack as a standalone piece for Omega Prime, that would work. As is, too much design compromise for UM in order to make Omega Prime works. RID is my second favorite UM incarnation and I hate to pass it up due to the design and possible price too. I'll reserve judgement for the review to come.
Big fan of RID too. I'm pretty on board with OP; will probably never put the blue head on him though if I do get him.
UM is definitely a tougher sell, I imagine most, like me, will be undecided until the finished product with colors and combined mode.
Since I happen to own Fanshobby's version of Scourge I might get Prime to display with him. I'm selling off my entire CHUG collection currently excluding movie figures I'm using to scale with MPM so I'm sure I'll be able to afford this once It's released. I would be down for a Devil Gigatron if they ever make him.
That robot mode in the first pic is about as anime accurate as it gets. What a gorgeous figure.
I love the options with the cannon. And combined mode looks great.
Damn....... looks good and they combined.
Well I think I know what my next Transformers purchase is going to be
Looks sweet, think I'll have to wait till the colors for UM to come out to see how they look like combined tho.
That blue head still looks so wrong...
Some more pics from their weibo, shared by TransFans.
Also, not sure if shared but they have a website: Banana Force Limited
Awesome! Lots off batteries.. I’m guessing a couple for each head, the cannon and chest piece. Should look pretty rad all lit up.
I would like to get in on this since I want action figure versions of transformers but it's hugely overpriced for what it is.
At least the Flame Toys are designed around moving armor pieces and collapsing panels.
This one looks like a generic Metal Build Gundam frame with different armor pieces pegged on.
Agreed. It’s definitely not in the actually league of a Flame Toys figure, as much as it probably wants to be.
