    As long as the colors are pretty close and dead end is Porsche(ish), I think I'm buying three of this sucker. I absolutely love what I've seen so far. Pretty reasonable price (by recent standards) doesn't hurt either.

    I think the price point is what going to help push me over the edge to consider FP productions over the other lines out there. A six hundred dollar gestalt is hard to take sometimes. At 300 bucks for the complete set, I am willing to sacrifice some size for it. Wondering if this is part of their subscription service that they have been talking about.

    Could the OP may be centralize the pictures that have been shown so far on the 1st post so to help unify the discussion a bit? It helps if we can reference all pics on 1st post. And thank you very much for doing this.

    If you look at the silhouette you can see the forarms ands the feet are made from the trailer. I assume it won't matter who forms the upper arms and lower legs.

    As for prototypes. Motormaster is in the prototype stage, the phone had the truck mode and the torso mode.

    Wonder what style of connectors this will use. If they use the Giant style connectors, I'll be all over this thing.

    Probably something completely different, as the two shown off so far don't seem to reveal any thing that resembles a "combiner port".

    More likely, Motormaster integrates most of the parts, and the cars clip onto the "skeleton".

    Oddly enough the pieces sticking out of the torso's shoulders was thin and white. From what I saw it looks to be a new connection style. Once again I only glimpsed at a prototype picture so things can obviously change.

    I take it that there has been absolutely no reveal of the DragStrip or Deadend molds? Not even an iPhone pic or anything?

    Anybody that hates parts forming for combiners must be forgeting that aside from the new FOC Bruticus every single combiner in history has been a parts former. Even the very first combiners in G1 you had to add at least the hands feet and sometimes the gestalt head to finish. And if FOC Bruticus is any indication of how non-parts forming combiners will look, I'll take parts forming. New Menasor looks great so far. Can't wait!

    Sorry maybe should've clarified 5 bot gestalt combiners not 3 bot stackables. While rail racer did combine without parts forming it did suffer from the same problem as FOC Bruticus. To me its a big cluster of a robot that just doesn't look well at all. I'm sure there are my fans of him but the flaps off his hips the giant "jet pack" and his huge train front end chest just look terrible. Besides is you wanna use him as an example of a non parts forming combiner you may as well throw in perceptor from the armada mini con team.
