    You have to really squint to see any similarities in the leg transformation though.
    You original wording was very vague.

    They are eventually going to do every figure, but I'd suspect that Optimus Prime and Megatron will probably be some of the very last figures they do. There isn't a real rush for either of those characters at the moment and it gives FansToys a lot more time to refine them.

    Imagine they if they made their last reveals Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, and Bumblebee. All being released in the same year.

    So Skywarp and Thundercracker before Starscream? That would be an interesting change from everyone else regardless of scale.

    That would be perfect. That way the best figures will be the most iconic ones.

    I think they will still do Devastator. And there is lots to improve on the currently availabe options. None are to my taste, that's why I use CW Devastator.

    Since they have shown that they are willing to use pants on their combiners, then what could FT do to improve over TW's Constructor other than the individual robot modes?

    I believe Toyworld Constructor looks nothing like what Devastator should look like, but that is my opinion. And as for loyalty. Not really. I'm skipping their Brawn and their Huffer. I have no interests in these characters. But as for looks FT is nailing what I want from Transformers. All the other companies, including TT, are in the backseat as far as I am concerned.

    For me to bite if FT can get Scavengers Bucket arm to fold away above the bicep to the deltoid area in Devastator mode that’d be a huge plus. Or detach it altogether for a cleaner look. Same thing with Hooks crane.

    Bonus is if they can make the lat parts a part of Long Haul.

    What!? The thing is practically G1 Devastator but looking cool. But I personally like Gravity Builder better. Maybe your definition of what Devastator should look like is stricter than mine.

    Hmmm that looks plausible! I am the opposite though... I like the parts of the construction vehicles to be visible on the combined mode.

    Constructor and Gravity builder don't look like he did in the cartoon. They look like real world vehicles. To some that is the ultimate of TFs and perhaps in the future I will collect these types of TF as well.

    But right now I want my childhood brought to life in MPs that look strikingly like the best parts of the cartoon, without going completely bland. I love MP Megs, TE Prime and MP Sunstreaker because of it.

    I'm good on Prime unless someone gives me my Toy accurate version. Soooooo much more I'd like to see from this company before Optimus.

    I'd Like an FT Prime, I'm sure it will be great, but if it doesn't blow the current primes out of the water I'd rather them work on other things

    if FT is workign on a prime, it won't be competition for mp-44...but for an eventual V4.0 takara mp convoy. lol. they got so much on their plate and they haven't even teased (not really) this, i dont know why people are even talking about it. that being said, if it comes...it'll probably be good.
