    If we knew that fanstoys was blowing smoke up our asses we would all have bought a kronos. We all passed cause we thought we'd have a fanstoys skyfire right now. Like ice t said "you owe alot of people" fanstoys

    Kronos, for me is a pretty good representation of a MP Skyfire. Mine was one of the lucky ones that seems to not have any of the QC problems, or maybe it does, but I was careful enough to not break anything. ;)  He now stands guard on my MP Autobot shelf, but I am very interested in what FT is going to do. I am a FT fan and own pretty much 1 of everything they have done to date!

    I can get behind some IDW accessories for sure, like his battle helm. Nothing wrong with add ones I don't necessarily need to use.

    I think he looks good. If it weren't for all the super negative reviews he got and that Fanstoys is making one I'd buy him. He looks great, but I need a figure that I can mess with. Not one that I stick on a shelf and never touch.

    Did the company that made Kronos go out of business? Did they make any other figures?

    I think they did a runner because of all the bad press. Good riddance if you ask me. They had other stuff in the works but it never came to fruition.

    Is there any news from fans toys on this thread? Just curious. I always check in and get my hopes up. Is there a timeline for this?

    After the backlash against Kronos, they pretty much took their ball and went home.

    We'll be seeing prototype pics from TFCon, which is in a few days. I don't think he'll be available for purchase until late next year, and that's being very optimistic.

    I really want to see more for PF. If dalianjj is working with some designer on that, then they need to do moar, much much moar! The work is amazing so far and they could do some really great stuff together. UM, combiners, seekers. The list is endless!

    TT is really shooting itself in the foot. It's time for FT to step in and lead riding the MP wave!

    I have to admit, this is a concern for me, as well... Not so much "over detailing", as I don't think they've gone that far, but little aesthetic choices, particularly with Grinder, that fall short of "G1 accuracy", however you want to define that.

    Their Galvatron looks a bit off to me as well, but that might be just an aesthetic preference.

    Agreed.

    Generally, I'm okay with it enough to call it a day, but I wouldn't mind seeing FansToys or BadCube taking a shot at the character, either.

    Battle-mask and maybe some light surface detailing - panel lines and what not. That's about as far as I expect "toy details" to go.

    That's the assumption based on dalianjj's statement that we would see something at TFCon.

    We might not see it until the 4 pm: 3rd Party Product Preview on Saturday. Or whenever it is revealed on display.
