    @honesty badcube , mmc and toyworld are also making trailbreaker they are all trying to cockblock each other it's a dog eat dog world out there , as merphul pointed out this has obviously been in the works for a while by how far along this looks so why waste all that time and effort and i'm glad they didn't :) 

    takara have already made good enough prowl smokescreen and soundwave

    This will be a purchase. I will probably get one of MMC or BC, but now instead of getting both, this will replace one and probably be my bot mode version. He does look very clean and I love the digibashes. Is his camper actually involved in transformation or is it partsforming?

    Yet another Trailbreaker. Gotta rush these Autobot car reveals out as soon as possible before Takara hits with the official one.

    Fans Toys, MMC ,Badcube and in case we all forgot, Toyworld.
    Tough to call between MMC and FT for me. I've already pre-ordered MMC but depending on FT's final version Terraegis may end up getting replaced.

    Glad i waited before committing to any one. Badcube alt mode is still my fav, but FT bot mode best so far. Now we just need the takara reveal and all will be complete. We've got time.

    Welp, accessories are great, but we don't need them, I'm not going for BC anymore, I know Takara will come out of Japan and say suprise MOTHER FUDGERS. I think tw and maybe ft needs to canelcel their project, because it's all a waste of money. Options are great, but it can be too much to think, really, all I should do is wait, all the rest of BCs products I'm going to buy, mmc not really, except mtmte. Fanstoys for the dinobots and hound and maybe phoenix.

    I don't need a new Soundwave - he's a pretty easy design as he's a boxy bot that turns into a ...box. Takara nailed it as good as any.
    I honestly wouldn't mind seeing a 3P do a new take on the Datsuns and Lambo's though. They're good and all, but I think a modern design with latest tech could really blow these away (I was always a little disappointed with the feet on the official Datsuns.) I think if Maketoys can finish their Seeker mould and succesfully make money with it, then the door may be open to 3P's re-doing some early official bots.

    3 companies are working on a MP Jazz. 4 if you want to shoehorn J4ZZ in there (voyager scaled IDW/Artwork inspired Jazz).

    So there are quite a few already.

    I cancelled my MMC Trailbreaker (I don't need a Studio Ox version if it can be helped) but still keeping my BC one. Just in case we don't see this guy for another two years or so.

    Not feeling this one. Seems like they are going with TT's more toony looking design direction. Very bland surfaces. I'm not a fan of that look.

    Still prefer OM or BC versions, I really don't think FT need to tackle Trailbreaker, I wish they would've announced a Jazz, Skids or Astrotrain

    FT has to release a Hoist prototype ASAP. Like I said, I love what BC has done with making the same car mold be different enough to be 2 different characters. The bot mode for this guy is super impressive. I'll be waiting to make my decision now.

    As long as they stay on track they can announce every character straight through to IDW issue 57. Don't see how it harms anything. Why do all the haters show up with the same issue every time?

    Agreed. I typically like FT's offerings in the various figure "wars", but this one misses the mark. He's got TT Ironhide's belly, and the thighs are comically short. At least there are other choices, and two of them don't suck.

    ... if I keep buying duplicates, the same thing for me... unless being alone counts

    more and more, I've become dependent on reviewers and direct post-release comparisons - FT and maketoys can duel it out then

    Really like the super clean bot mode on this guy. I think both BC and MMC have FT beat on alt mode though. I think BC may have the overall best looking Trailbreaker, but I've yet to buy a BC product that was fun to transform. I don't mind an involved transformation (Apollyon is fun), but most BC transformations are more tedious than fun.

    As many have said, it will probably be a while for this guy (unless FT pulls a Tesla) so we may hear about a TT version before this is released. However, if I were buying today, FT would get my money.

    And maybe it's the angle, but his head looks a tad on the large side.

    Looks like this is going to be my other Trailbreaker along with Terraegis.
