    yep. Flame toys up-scaled Animated Prime style is a pretty super detailed, super articulated action figure. Which I don''t really collect anyways.

    All good. I’d like to see MP-44 shove a gun in his backpack.

    impossible you know that. Because MP44's backpack is made for his voice chips and electronics. :p

    Obviously there will be a Nemesis Prime version. White for Magnus and Purple for Shattered Glass as well?

    ALSO I STILL WANT GRIMLOCK AND NOVA PRIME

    Lol no need to get all past tense on us. They need to lay the ground work. Reminder, they’ve done 3 of these guys and one limited exclusive. They gotta lay it down. The big teaser ages ago was just a couple of ideas they could get to. And I’m sure they’ll do a Grimlock or Nova Prime.

    I might be out of the Flame Toys game. My misassembled Drift is in week 9 of not hearing back from Bluefin about a replacement. They told me 6-8 weeks. There's nothing better than opening a $300 product that came broken and not being able to get a replacement from the manufacturer. Of course the site I bought it from told me Bluefin had to handle the replacement. What should have been a highlight of my collection, just makes me angry every time I look at it. I really wanted the Prime, and I was thinking about tracking down a Tarn. Now I think I'll just use the money for something else.

    I don't think it's the retailers fault, Bluefin is suppose to handle Flame Toys replacements in the US. They just suck at it I guess.

    Well the maybe source a different seller. Foreign imports might be bad but it could be better. I’m forced to do it lol.

    Pics of him at ACG 2019 in Hong Kong. Nothing new but just showing off how he’s still hot and we can’t wait. Those hands are really nice.

    Dear lord that axe looks cool. I really wish that they had a way for the stateside retailers like ToyDojo to get the preorder bonuses.
