Well alrighty then.
I think that vector sigma in the back is another hint at this being a re-branded Hot Soldiers or whatever they call themselves. Also, MFT posted this and the product shots on their weibo, so, the dots are connecting.
It was mentioned on the MFT Weibo that HS may be selling art to IronTrans, if they are not actually HS under a new brand name. It wasn't said by MFT officially, but it was an interesting addition to the conversation.
I am gifgly interested in this, want prowl taller than my other carbots :3
Hopefully they are a little taller than that, just measured MFT sideswipe and he’s around 10.5cm
Tfdirect list them at approx 4” which would be better as it works out around 10.2cm
I am in for 10,5 even if my other carbots are either IF or the same height aside from MFT G2 sideswipe. I like certain carbots taller and Prowl sure is among then.
MFT Sideswipe and Red Alert are 10 cm. More precisely 9.9 cm.
The guy above my post said 10,5, my MFT G2 is in car mode right now and I am not near him so I am going for what he said. Still, compared to my other toys, G2 has a good side for Prowl so either way, he works for me, just waiting on preorders.
That's as straight a shot as I can take without the camera angle messing with eye perception. But I assure you, if you measure this figure by yourself, it's 9.8 to 10 cm tall.
Show.Z has these three listed as In Stock. Have we seen any in hand photos floating around yet? And video?
I’ll probably order the set regardless.
Never mind, I found an official IronTrans Weibo page with these new images.
They look a little rough. Not exactly the polish we’ve been accustomed to with releases from Hot Soldiers or MFT and really these alt modes pale in comparison to NewAge’s offerings.
maybe they just photograph badly. hopefully they look better in peson and and not sooo empty.
Honestly, looking at it again, I’m kinda glad I’m not getting these guys. The alt mode actually kills it for me. The headlights and some paint apps really make this look like a dollar store KO. The only thing this has over newage is smokescreens spoiler. Also I guess they couldn’t get the shoulder wheels done for any of them.
edit: I’m also now realizing that they don’t have door windows...
For the price they have, the seem to be pretty bad, if they were cheaper, maybe
They look really bad compared to New Age, I was waiting for them cause the New Age are way to small for my legend collection, as it is mostly comprised of magic square and iron factory, but these ones does not seem an adeguate replacement.
Still hoping for a magic square take on them, or an upscale of new age ones
There is a magic square set. It’s on tfsource as a trio pack set for October
Nice! I am pretty sure October is a bit optimistic, but good to know they are eventually going to release them!
You say optimistic but it’s been pushed back I think 2x already. Lmao
I nearly bought all 3 of these - but you folks put me off a bit. I think I may wait and see if once they get more distribution the price drops - if not I will at least wait to see what they look like with MFT toys or even other Hot Soldiers toys before I buy.
They are not horribly expensive - it's just that the NA ones do seem a bit better overall - but I do tend to play with the MFT scale more than I do the smaller scale items. (they can be a little fiddly) these do look simply enough to be easy to play with ; hopefully some video reviews will materialise shortly.
