    Isn't XTransbots doing this also. He needs to be more hunched over and more Frankensteinish

    Well, the head placement sure is more accurate on this one.

    I think this looks perfect for what it's supposed to be: A scrap bot that never transformed. The shoulder cannon could be bigger, but if the price is right, I'd cop this.

    The XTB version looks way derpy.

    This looks better than the XTB one...

    The text in the link says ...blahblahblah...19,8 cm....blahblahblahblah....Masterpiece....blahblahblah... Nice!

    Anyone knows/understands when this monstruosity is expected to be ready for release?

    Looks great! It's looking like there's no leg articulation though?

    It looks like that. A big no-no for me.

    Stupid looking "character," cheap finish, and non-articulated legs. Even if I had the slightest interest in an Autobot Spike, this thing would be the easiest pass ever.

    It looks fine enough but there seems to be little to no articulation. Maybe the arms rotate at the shoulder?

    Looks way better than XTB's attempt but it's an unknown quantity at this point.

    Assuming quality is good and the arms articulate at shoulders and elbows, head at neck, it'd serve the purpose tucked in a corner or back row on a shelf being the incredibly minor "character" that it is.

    Yeah definitely beats XTB's in sculpt, the face sculpt alone looks amazing, but the lack of articulation is a bit of a disappointment. I don't need the character to transform, but I want it to be able to be posed. This looks like elbow-bend, maybe shoulder rotation, maybe wrist on the one hand. The head may also rotate, but hard to say. No waist, thigh, knee or ankle movement.

    19.8cm also sounds a little small - that's shorter than MP Ironhide. I kind of thought the point of Autobot Spike was he was this big hulking brute made up of random bits... akin to Frankenstein's Monster. Didn't he face off against Megatron?

    The other thing that would worry me is the finish. Looking at it, this looks more like that dense rubber/latex material, rather than the crisp hard ABS we get in MP's. I have a feeling in the middle of a glossy plastic, and painted MP collection, the softer rubber on this may stand out.

    It's hard to say though. If the price is low enough I'll definitely take a gamble on it.

    This looks more Pop Vinyl than Action Figure.

    That’s what I was thinking. The finish just has that vinyl look to it. It also looks too cartoony for me. I don’t think it would look right in a MP collection.

    ^This. It surely looks that way when you look at the hand.

    IDK. XTB your getting a MP figure but no transformation. This is just a vinyl (assuming here) figure without the articulated hands and who know's what else. They certainly can give us more, even if vinyl and very may will do that but for now, this is a watch and I hope both products are shown in their finish state so I can make the best choice for my collection.

    My money to the first people to figure out how to make it transform.
