    It’s because we want this frigging figure!
    Such a long time waiting for a good BlitZwing.

    The difference in aesthetic from ft Blitz to ft Astro is striking, just much cleanerI welcome a redesign at this point to avoid it later.

    I want my MP BW now, but I don't want something that will need to be replaced by a better version down the road.

    So, we wait.

    But delaying a figure that has been on pre-order for a year is totally fine... :p

    Whoever said it a few pages ago hit the nail on the head - FT will revisit their Blitzwing at or around the time of their Astrotrain release. They're going to want those two to look good together. We haven't really had a "definitive" Blitzwing yet -
    KFC's has colour issues, loose joint and stability issues.
    DX9's isn't even G1

    There's definitely room in the market for another version, and coinciding with the release of FT AstroTrain is a perfect time frame for that.

    A very solid point, and a likely, smart move on their part. Maybe when can expect their Trailbreaker with Brawn, Warpath, and Beachcomber coming. Another smart move on their part of that's how they decide to do it. I think you've just given us all a ray of hope there sir.

    I for one am glad its being redeveloped. Maybe we won't get the blitzwing equivalent of hoodlum (i mean garbage) since the design is so old at this point.

    Agreed with what some have already said. I expect an update with the next update on their AT

    Quick, someone take the render of Berserk and cover it in chrome reflective paint and repost it as the "X" version so people can hate this one, too.

    We want it..YESTERDAY! LOL

    I have Ditka..and although it is G1-accurate (for the most part)..it is big and clunky. I think Titans Return BW is a much better-designed figure even though it is not totally G1-accurate.

    yeah..but at least take down the preorders, so we are not waiting on a figure that so far has yet to see the light of day

    Look at all the versions of Springer that have come out..if they can create 3, 4, or 5 different versions of Springer, then why not multiple versions of Blitzwing?

    Lets hope it's soon..maybe a company will even do a worthy (or at least worthwhile) Legends scale version of BW.

    It's not being redesigned because it's DEAD. Done. Gone. Ka-Put. Extinct just like their MP-style Trailbreaker. They've moved on to Astrotrain instead along with going the combiner club.

    Here lies the grave of Fans Toys Berserker, who died before ever being born. Maybe Fans Toys will dig up the carcass in a few years so and revive him, but my Magic 8-Ball says "chances are slim".

    BadCubes is kind of toy influenced and has a nice alt mode
    MMC is pretty good in bot and alt, though there is a little colour mismatch round the roof and windows
    XTB is probably the nicest option if MMC doesn’t quite do it for you.
    There was a prototype from ToyWorld but luckily it was stillborn before it could progress very far. That one was a monstrosity.
    FT’s may come some point down the line if demand is still there.
    I ended up with MMC because I didn’t want to wait for XTB. Never bothered to upgrade because the two are honestly super similar. In fact, to my eye FT, MMC and XTB were all practically identical and pretty much interchangeable. BC was distinctly different and distinctly worse.

    Also worth noting XTB version is getting a slight redesigned v2 with added ab crunch, cartoon faces, new hands and cartoon colouring.

    More than likely because they share the same fate at this point. Both long delayed due to redesign. They're coming though, I feel it.
