    Blackarachnia might be my favorite of the female models. There's something less egregious about it compared to Windblade and Arcee. I think because she always kinda looked like this lol

    Lots of info from FlameToys recently, it's good to see they're continuing the 3K line.

    Cyclonus looks good and will brighten up the badguy side.

    I am a huge fan of G1 Jazz, he was one of my favorite toys as a kid and the SS86 fig (w/ toyhax) makes me so happy. (Bayverse Jazz makes me sad, wish he had more time to be a character) I understand the Mirage change for the new movie, curious to see what the character is like, and the robot mode. Babble aside, as much as I love the more '84 style, I do really like the sketch and proto we have seen so far, he has the weird crotch thrust thing but I've seen worse. It kinda works on some mecha like the Eva units or Jehuty. I am looking forward to this Jazz. I have glanced longingly at Flame Toys products on BBTS before but never bought any. How well are the models compared to Bandai/Gundam, Kotobukiya kits? Is the Kuro Kara Kuri QC worth it? I generally avoid non transforming figures above mini scale, but I love this concept. Is he based on anything from the comics specifically? In my head currently he's similar to a Powermaster Optimus Prime upgrade situation lol.

    (No one is still reading :p  Weirdly enough, in the Post G2/Pre Beast Wars Transformers toy drought of the early 90's, I purchased a F.A.Z.Z. (ironically named) Gundam and a Martini Racing RC car decal set at a model shop, and made my own Super Action Master Jazz lol. He disappeared in a move years ago and I don't have pics, but this (I think) was the version I had)

    Mirage being a Porsche in the new movie may be a sign of things to come? One can only hope.

    Blackarachnia is looking interesting, but I'm not a fan of the cutesy face design. I wish it was more "femme fatale".
    Aside from maybe Arcee, Bludgeon and Banzaitron, the rest don't appeal to me at all. Way too jagged and over-stylized.

    That would certainly be the hope, but there's no guarantees of that. Filming rights don't equal toy rights. And they're not necessarily blanket permissions either. They might grant the rights to produce toys in Mirage's image in that scenario, but no further. It's entirely Porsche's prerogative, and how they want their brand represented.

    that 3K rodimus is bought unless for some reason it's bigger or more expensive than megatron and tarn. jazz is probly gonna be too big for me to be into, but we'll see.

    the similar design cues + the stylization and paint on rodimus are gonna make him look stunning next to ccs gurren lagann.

    Just saw FlameToys post their Blackarachnia in their US page, got a bad feeling about it, bad move, bad move.

    That would require this artist to be capable of drawing more than one style of fembot.

    Same artist or not, the rest of these have shown some diversity in style even if they all borrow from the "TF but Gundam" family. So it's a shame they couldn't put that same effort in to BA, Windblade, and Arcee.

    I’d get all the 3K figs if the price were in the sub $300 range, like how Drift was. SG Prime will be my last 3K fig purchase, for now....

    I think you'll find that arcee is a novel update on Ban's formula by making her look even more like a child. While blackarachnia is a powerful return to form with her stunning and brave big mommy milkers.

    giphy (1).gif

    To be fair they also integrated her alt's abdomen in to the bot mode because they felt the design could use an even bigger booty.

    RIP my Demolishor and Bludgeon, and Dead End too (he was stored with one of those rubber pieces pressing into him). Ugh.
