I also hope these still get made. Preferably in US colors.
I like Apeface. He looks damn good
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.
Well yeah a Maketoys one would be great. But they don’t seem to be doing anything.
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.
Lookie here! A blast from the past. How I wish we could see some progress of these guys at TFCon.
Yeah I have given up
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.
want these bad but more the comic deco
Yeah. I'm more of a Dreadwind and Darkwing toy fan than I am a Buster and Hydra fan.
A fair guess. And I respect that more.
598 just confirmed it so good news guys
That's great! I'd really love to own an MP Dreadwing.
Let me hold my breath!
I have to remain strong and not get into these. Based on how KFC colored their Apeface and Snapdragon, I am probably safe.
regardless of the deco they are great figures! i'm hoping with these they do the cartoon and comic deco
I forgot these are the people who teased Quintessons too and never showed anything on them later. But I hope we get both eventually.
I'll wait until they know for sure.
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.
