    I also hope these still get made. Preferably in US colors.

    Would be fine with me. I've never understood why Keith has two different companies/figure lines anyway. There's probably some story there or something that I don't know about. I have quite a few XTB figures but only one KFC (that I can think of), Transistor, and for what it's worth I think it's quite good. But I know that KFC has kind of trailed off and that much of their stuff has had a pretty mixed reaction at best.

    Old-ish comment I know, but the reason why is each line is different designers.

    I can't speak for KFC designs the past couple of years, but I know everything up to then was the same designer (albeit designed to Keith's specifications). I suspect it's still the case, but I can't confirm it. The same designer who has done just.... Globs of 3p shit for tons of companies, going way back.

    Then all the xtb stuff is 598 Robots, pretty sure.

    I have a hard time giving up on hope.
    It's given me a lot of dissapointements.
    These will probably not come anymore. But we'll see.

    I think it's still happening. I think the difference is Keith has started keeping most stuff closer to the chest, for a couple of reasons:
    • To stop such a big lag time between announcement and release
    • To stop people stealing designs (Crackup)
    • To stop FansToys doing the "Oh so-and-so is happening? Quick! Shit out a 3d render!"
    I think these are still happening, along with some of the other XTB MIA figures (Springer, Kup), but that it's going to stay quiet until they're a month or two out from release.

    Along with I think KFC / XTB actually has some larger projects they're working on designs for that's unannounced yet.

    Yeah. I'm more of a Dreadwind and Darkwing toy fan than I am a Buster and Hydra fan.

    I have to remain strong and not get into these. Based on how KFC colored their Apeface and Snapdragon, I am probably safe.

    I forgot these are the people who teased Quintessons too and never showed anything on them later. But I hope we get both eventually.

    Odd choice for the jet designs. Seems like it would've been easier to just base the jet modes on a Tornado IDS and initial FSX concept(F-16 derivative for Japan with canards) instead of making CHUG-looking F-14 Tomcat with completely different wings/horizontal stabilizers and only 1 vertical stabilizer and the front fuselage of a MIG-29 smacked onto the 2/3 of an F-16 body.

    The robot modes look okay.
