    About as expected. Tail's different but not terrible. The wing shape almost looks more like the DaVinci glider sketches than to the original toy.

    I've been enjoying their stuff. It's intended MP scale, but I don't have a concept of scale for a missile truck. So like the Monsterbots, he's potentially fine next to generations if you assume he big.

    Sadly, I just purchased the ER version and upgrade kit, so I have no appetite for this boy. Colored test shots will have to excite me something special to change that. Well, that and the current toy doesn't hit it. That one-two punch turned me around on Cacus.

    Usually when we see color test shots at the soonest.

    Depends on what they have to iron-out IRC, and reaction from the fandom. Its not unknown for FH, to develop a prototype only to have it re-engineered after fandom feedback. I dont personally care if it takes a couple years to materialize, as long as the final product ticks all the boxes.

    Who the heck else is going to take a decent jab at that guy anyway? Better they get their time and deliver perfection.

    Me with nearly every one of Fans Hobby's releases.

    Like we're always going to get G1 characters over and over again from the first 3 seasons, but when do you think anyone will make an MP of Double Dealer, Energon Prime, or the Headmaster Jr. over say Starscream.

    Ι dont really get what that reply is supposed to mean? Ιt might be that English is not my native language, but I dont get it really. Do you agree or disagree? What I am trying to say is that FH, is quite possibly the only ones who are going to make a double dealer in the foreseeable future at an MP scale, and it would be better if they take their time to refine the design and make it as good as it gets, rather than rush it out.

    No, I don't think the misunderstanding is on your side. You asked, "who is going to take a jab..." asking, who else is going to make an attempt at designing one?

    But I think it was read as, " who is in a hurry to buy him?" Or something of the like. And his response sort of makes the same point you originally offered as a question.

    It reminds me of a long time ago in a thermodynamics class where a first semester Indian professor asked a question about solving a mathematical problem and a Russian student responded with looking for an asymptote. But where both were speaking good but not great English, the word was mistaken as "isotope" resulting in a five minute rage from the professor before he stormed out the door.

    After a few seconds of dead silence, a lone voice from the back offered, "Boy, you sure did it this time, Anton."

    Then we all got to use our books during the final exam as a result of the professor's embarrassment. Easiest A possible.

    Yeah, it's a big reason why while I probably won't get every single one of their releases, I truly appreciate Fans Hobby and what they bring to the table. They're focusing really on the niches, sticking in that lane and going with it to the moon. I wouldn't be surprised to see them go even further. Like hell, they're already working on Energon, how long till we get something from Cybertron, maybe Animated a little while after that?

    It's a cycle that if ringing true, i'm honestly excited to see.

    And? I was talking about getting an IDW MP Soundwave from Gcreation. Because the post I was replying to was about him.

    Sorry for the dumb question, but which show is this guy from? My post 86' movie knowledge of Transformers is pretty much non-existent.

    Victory is Star Saber and Simba vs Deathsaraus?

    Masterforce is Ginrai Prime and the Head Master Jr's vs Overlord?

    I don't like Animated, those designs are too cartoony / childish for my liking.

    Even by doubledealer standards that bird mode ain't good.
