    It would be crazy to have not one but two new options for a Cybertron Optimus on the market

    MakeToys it's trying to exist right now, i don't think they'll make UT figures ever again.

    But its in their Cross Dimensions line, that they said they're continuing. That's their passion project so maybe not UT MP but stylized UT. Using their Re:Master G1 MP Series to prop up their other line is probably their plan.

    Which is crazy that we'd get even more stylized detail, proportions etc. from CD while figures like Tracks, Windcharger, Ultra Magnus in G1 MP are updated.

    I really can't wait for their return.

    I know some people want the treads on the shoulders, but I'm loving how this looks myself personally.

    Bold of you to claim Siege is even worth mentioning as.an "option"

    TakTom's habit of keeping the plans for their version up in the air is starting to tempt me on this guy for my Prime shelf, even though it doesn't wow me.

    Guess I'll hafta watch some reviews for him once they start being made.

    I bet they'd only be interested once they (1) sell through their backlog, and (2) see it selling for 2x MSRP on eBay.

    I'm assuming the fact that Galaxy Meteor got teased originally on April 1 didn't help either.
    Same; if anything I'll probably pull the originals back out just to see the old and new together. Always fun to do.

    Galaxy Meteor is still one of my top 10 favorite figures.

    Such a great toy!

    I hadn't been paying much attention to this. This era of TF's is sort of outside anything i have connection to.

    I just now saw the picture of Naval Commander out of his armor. I hadn't realized that was the core bot. I've wanted a toy of him for ages and had been eagerly waiting to see what Hastak was going to do with the proto they showed a while back.

    Suddenly this is on my radar in a big way. I know 3P release dates are always very wrong- but have they made any estimates for when this might be coming? (doesn't appear to be finished yet) Apparently i need to start watching this thread.

    306F59D5-CBC8-4374-8B17-C08C248221C1.png I’ve sent Fanshobby a message on their Facebook asking if it is likely we can get a special edition in the PS2 colour scheme, waiting for their reply.

    I think that it’s because the game is still well liked and considered one of the best TF games ever made, I personally like it more but I’m not actually sure why even though the cartoon design is great too.

    Fanshobby seem to be interested anyway judging by their reply. 7FA97BC7-AB12-4079-A81E-2CFD56A057F2.png

    BBTS has 4th quarter 2020 as the estimated date so December. I have also seen November floated around as well.
