    Well, I am hoping there will be some updates from the International Tokyo Toy Show on this line. The lack of news and pre-orders is starting to kill a little bit of my excitement. It would be awesome if there was some news at SDCC too, but I am not counting on it.

    Nope, I did a google search and found nothing dealing with Tokyo Toy Show 2015 and Machine Robo. The most recent coverage I found was on Cybergundam Facebook's page with links to taghobby.com, where there was nothing even mentioning Machine Robo.

    Looks like this line might be in Development Hell along with the new Captain Power TV series and MOTU movie. :(

    Well I was in no rush (nor my wallet now that I think about it). I'll be patient. I'd be very surprised if this was completely abandoned.....

    Any chance you can ask your friend the status of this line for us?

    I am curious if a copyright or licensing issue is preventing this line from happening.

    Click link for more images

    Another part of this "Machine Robo" renewal series, very clearly from the MakeToys/Fansproject designer. the hands, hipjoints, and very likely the shoulders are ripped straight from prior releases

    Is that a possible MR-05 Loco too?

    This is more of a collectors item than anything else so I imagine there is more chance we'll hear something during next months Wonderfest.

    Is this the WonderFestival you are referring to?

    ????????????Wonder Festival

    If so, in about 20 more days we might have some news about this line (assuming SDCC does not provide any information).
