Heck Spindrift will be the name of his next website!!! Heattoy->Bombusbee->Spindrift.
FT Outrider. A transformable toy that is six years in the making! Remember what happened 2015? Nope. Me neither.
Gotta say, the paint and chrome on Outrider looks killer. Bring it on. My carbot shelf needs more chrome!!
【Pre-order】Fanstoys FT-25 Outrider Trailbreaker
Looks great! Bot mode, alt-mode, all look good. No idea how accurate the alt-mode is to the real-life car, but it looks convincing. Besides the non-translucent parts on the rear windows. Nice chrome parts as well. Clean bot mode with a good sized head. Well done, FT!
Dat shiny paint.
That's some compact vehicle mode
Not really very much at all unfortunately . Their old design was pretty accurate, in line with the efforts of XTB, BC and MMC, but this redesign is miles off - really tall, stumpy and chunky looking - makes the real truck look sleek, lol! I can only assume that was a very deliberate decision to go more G1 toy or toon, but it's a strange decision to me while everyone else, including TT, and even FT themselves with their combiners, Mirage, Jazz are still going realistic alts for MP.
I jumped ship to XTB when I saw that in FT's redesign cos it matters to me. Shame because this bot mode is sublime and easily tops XTB's.
I look at it the other way - holy shit how did they manage to get their Huffer so big in alt mode!! Putting my XTB Trailbreaker next to FT Beachcomber it looks about the same, except FT a fair bit taller due to the more chibi sculpt they're going for. So dont worry FT Trailbreaker is the right scale - it's just Huffer that's biiiig, which is awesome!
Oh I'm not complaining, more the opposite. He's iron hide size in bot mode and beach comber vehicle mode. Pretty cool engineering
I'm kind of on the fence for this. I have XTB's Toon Version Trailbreaker already, which I really like. I need to see a good side by side comparison to make a decision. Oddly enough TFSource had this up for pre-order like a year ago and I put it in my stack, so as long as they honor the pre-order I'm covered.
This was a nice surprise. And since Ive already got it preordered with TCP, I dont have to worry about bumrushing their site to try to score a new preorder.
Me too. One at TCP and one with Show.Z
Sooo glad I sold my XTB
Darn, forgot to get a PO in and now Bombusbee is sold out
I dislike faction symbols over ridges/raised areas on bots, but hopefully a waterslide won't look too bad on him
Was thinking the same thing. That a major issue that I have with MMC.
Yup. Looks like you did the best you could there. I still haven't put one on XTB Hoist because of it
