Looks like a custom, I see bits of the DotM DMK in it.
I thought Hot Toys only did Barbies?
OMG! If that's real, I will buy it! No matter the cost!
HOT TOYS?! Holy damn. You'd think that 3A would score a license like this as mecha and robots are 3A's thing. It'll be too rich for my blood, and it's a bayformer, but damn, still. If this is indeed Hot Toys, I hope they'd go into G1 for a pop culture hit. I'd have to drop money on Hot Toys G1 for sure.
Are we sure it is Hot Toys? People on there spotting bits of existing toys worked in there, etc. General thought seems to be it is a custom.
Remember Ashley Wood/3A are doing something. We just don't know what yet.
Prime and BB or Prime on Grimlock seem like obvious choices, but who knows. It may not even be movie related. We just know they got a transformers license and announced it at a time that suggests movie stuff.
^Uhh, they do loads of movie-themed figs. If you count Predators and Iron-Man as barbies, then you are sadly misinformed..
What do you suppose a Predator themed Barbie would look like?
oh god- it's too horrifying to even think of!
Guys, it's a custom. Hot toys often shows off fan-created customs based of HT true-type bodies at conventions and stuff. It's sometimes pretty nuts like this. This is absolutely not official Hot Toys work. Don't go crazy.
Just as well. They're all about accuracy anyway, and accurate that is not.
is it 1/6th scale?
This comes from a guy whoa collecting toys for kids *facepalm*
This is floating threw Facebook and I think it's a custom/fake as well
Guys, if Hot Toys ever release TFs - I suggest everyone to think really hard. Most of the releases especially with rubber parts are laced with QC issues.
Case in point one of their latest the ED-209's rubber canopy is already deteriorating for some collectors.
Forget about sending emails to them as their customer service is pretty bad - on par with Mattel's partner, Digital River! X)
Yeah, their customer service sucks. I bought an Iron Man figure on Ebay and it was missing a part (War Machine Milk edition something something). I contacted them, and they just wouldn't do anything about it because I didn't buy it from an official retailer.
But hey, where are you supposed to find these figures a few months after release? Since then I stopped buying from them, I just can't afford spending 300$ for a figure with quality issues and a non existent support.
Yup, looking at that clearer picture, it's a custom.
- The gun is Hounds with BB's mechtech gun parts
- Looking at the abs, you see the DMK bits
Along with various other parts slapped on.
This makes sense. I would have been shocked if official HT product was this far off, particularly in the shoulders.
