    I'd ask why Studio Ox did a render of a one-off character who doesn't even transform, but neat?

    Fuck. Me.
    A few weeks ago I said it would be impossible to make an Autobot X.
    I was just proven wrong.

    I mean, it's not really that hard to make a non-transforming and basically unmoving statue of it....

    Lacking the glorious points of articulation we are spoiled in getting, this figure has no excuses considering it doesn't transform. Fix this and you'll have way more buyers.

    Are there really that many people crying out for this one? I honestly had forgotten about this episode until I saw this thread.

    Let me know when we get this bad boy and we'll talk. I'd want it to transform into something though.

    I mean, kinda. Though XTB at least tried with theirs. That one has a ton of articulation from the look of it. Did they ever say if it transformed?

    What a strange figure... I'm glad they didnt try and shoehorn in a weird franken-alt mode. I feel it would have driven the price up for something that the target audience for this figure wouldnt get a lot of use out of. Who would display Autobot X in alt mode?

    On a design note, am i the only one who wishes he had more... Forehead? like in the episode and the art he just had a massive noggin and it really lent itself to the more Frankenstein aesthetic of the whole thing. Otherwise im glad it looks like its made out of other masterpiece figures!

    Also, can we address how weirdly dark that episode was? Like they could have gone the rout of "Man being an autobot is hard and a lot of responsibility" but instead went with "Holy crap im a monster i hate this and everyone who abandoned me", just a weird turn for what it was worth

    point is, if the price is right im grabbing one, its such a strange moment in G1.

    General opinion is that XTB’s doesn’t transform either.

    One definite potential advantage is that a non-transforming figure should be a crap-ton cheaper than a complex transforming one. Also materials, moulding and limited articulation on this one should also reduce the cost.
    Buying from China direct I can see this potentially coming in below $50. Possibly a lot below. Western stores will obvious mark it up a heap on that.
    For $30-$40 this could be a fun space-filler for a minor character.

    This version of Autobot-X hasn’t marked off enough check boxes for me to buy it.
