    Not interested in seeing this come before any of the announced figures FT already has in its roadmap.

    Not sure what the point is of revealing such an obviously rough mock-up. Wait till you have something impressive to show, surely? TE's Mirage looks WAY better than this so far.

    Goodness knows FT has enough unreleased stuff in the works already.

    Looks to have beat TE at it's own game, given this guy is cleaner, although, it seems to have odd proportions.

    I’m definitely curious to see more of this AND the TE effort. It will be nice to have a decent choice to make.

    TE should hurry because I'm inclined to go FT by default.

    Probably won't be this "clean" when finished. It is similar to the first renders of FT's Dragstrip and Dead End. They were basic drawings showing the shape and detail was added in when they finalized the design.

    I know this is early, but that head doesn't look like Mirage at all.

    Hehe :p 

    Yeah this could almost be put down to Fanstoys usual process of revealing renders 17 years prior to release in order to take attention away from other 3P offerings. Still though, options are good and we're still waiting for a toon Mirage, so between this and TE we'll hopefully get at least one decent figure.

    I'm assuming the gun is still under design? Any chance of a toy head option?

    Given this is FT we're talking about, the finished product probably won't be that much better. Their forte in that department seems to be "close enough, but never perfect".

    Thank goodness this is coming. Glad to see FT doing more carbots.

    This will be a great alternative to MMC Sphinx which had the caved-in, bowed front wheels, lack of proper undercarriage clearance, which MMC, with all their repaints, refused to completely fix.

    Mirage is my all-time favorite Autobot character and G1 figure. Fanstoys is my all-time favorite 3rd party developer. Fanstoys Mirage is a win-win for me and a day one purchase. It's about time we get a high-quality Mirage figure. I can't wait!!
