Their website says Nov/Dec with a 7-14 day shipping period so likely more so December
Popular? No, not at all. But the game is very beloved by the few who've played it. I actually prefer Tidal Wave's US toy colors with the line green over the anime accurate colors because of the PS2 game. And you bet your ass I'd army build Decepticlones if we got any.
Fingers crossed! I definitely prefer that colour scheme as there's too much grey in the current one
Did they change Galaxy Manus to CD? I haven't followed it really, but I know it was announced as Re:Master (because CD announcements are quickly discarded in my mind). Also a line they are continuing overall, but their interest in UT is questionable at this point.
how i think it could work is to give the red and blue bits a gloss coat while give the metallic bits a weather finish like gigapower's bots
something that I'm curious about when it comes to repaints is whether or not they'll make some without the super mode, nemesis prime would be a popular repaint and feels likely but since he never had a supermode i feel like most people getting it would only be interested in the core bot and just leave the trailer in the box, same goes for a ps2 repaint.
on another note has it been mentioned whether or not the missiles are spring loaded? i was looking at the vehicle mode yesterday and noticed that there appeared to be buttons behind them
I assumed Galaxy Manus was part of CD as the allusion to that meaning "Optimus/Prime" within CD was started and continued in that line, (Striker Manus, Thunder Manus) but it does say Re: Master "Galaxy", so it might be an MP UT line.
No news since this teaser so who knows.
I'm not saying it'll ever happen, we were just talking hypothetically.
Honestly, I feel like validating Hasbro's attempts even if they're not great on the hopes they'll do more UT stuff.
Hey, you know what'd be cool? You know how Cybertron Deluxe BW Optimus Primal and Megatron had little miniature replicas of their starships, Axalon and Darksyde? What if FansHobby made miniature models of the Armada starships, Axalon and Hydra Cannon for their Armada Optimus and Megatron? I think it might already be too late to add anything to Optimus, but I still think it'd be really cool.
Not a bad idea, but honestly you get a better look of how it’s actually meant to come across “in universe” during the game cutscenes and the colours are super chalky looking.
Here’s some examples.
I guess if they went with a matte colour then lightly gloss it you could get a nice mix.
I came across a digibash made by someone called @ian_reid on Twitter of what a potential nemesis would look like.
It does look very nice, and I’m not really sure how Fanshobby do this sort of thing when it comes to repaints but I would presume they’ll offer the full package for each release like what they did with Power Baser.
Personally speaking I’m willing to buy a Nemesis, PS2 and Powerlinx version on top of the main release just to support their project and prove there is money in the UT. Same goes for Galvatron, and I’d swing for a Powerlinx Starscream if they do make him.
I'm hoping they give the nemesis version an additional battle damaged head
That would be pretty cool, I’ll probably end up gifting the Nemesis version to my brother because that’s more his thing than mine. I wonder if we could get a limited con exclusive portraying the episode where Optimus gets dusted by the Hydra cannon?
This is blue text but you must realize FansHobby probably would do this if they thought it would sell
You know, I really did debate whether to blue text that or not because I get the feeling you’re right.
500 pieces worldwide!
There's other ways to get a dead Optimus.
MT seems to have decided to carry over names for the same characters across lines similar to how it is with Hasbro. For example they used Despotron in Re:Master before going for Rioter Despotron in CD.
i just know the second I put down money for this is when Takara will announce a release date for that prototype they teased ages ago.
Hmm but does it matter? Takara certainly won't have a super mode?
I don't know why you would count them out. Takara has proven they can do some batshit insane retools and whatnot.
Regardless I highly doubt they would be able to accomplish the level of detail and articulation that fanshobby product provides... only way is if takara opts for a masterpiece armada prime IMO
