    Thanks so much! :D 
    Maybe they use the same photographer. ;)  I agree they're probably the same company, but then, we'd never heard of BingoToys either until they announced that Shockwave, had we? So we still don't know anything about them either way.

    Very true. Maybe they’re getting into the copyright dodging early and already making new company names?

    Truck modes legs looks like it folds up similar to the Wei Jiang version. Upper body looks like a different mold though, can't wait to see more of it

    Wow, a full body metal frame in a transforming figure. That sounds really cool. Should make for a damn solid figure. Also sounds expensive but I guess we'll see since it's coming out *checks notes* almost a year ago?

    No visible screw holes and almost no visible hinges :eek:  I kinda hope the G1 MP makers don't learn that trick cuz I'd hate to have to start my whole collection over again. Truck mode looks great too though I'm eager to see it from some other angles. Also I'd love a trailer though I can imagine that'd probably be pretty pricey.

    Well, i think DNA can do an upgrade kit for that one too if they want. Althought i’m not entirely sure would there be a demand for such an upgrade kit. Considering what a mess MPM-12 is. You could be in the minority, i mean if you are interested in those cat ears. ;)

    I love freedom leader, faults and all... But this could replace it. Looks excellent

    He has model kit skeleton. How does he transform? Would it be a model kit that transforms?

    @Angry fan the skeleton to me, shows this is a fully stable figure with a genuine anthropomorphic foundation, you can see the spot above the blue is likely where he MIGHT swivel around and likely transform (bends at the waist) like 99% of all OP figures based on a semi tractor.

    But we are supposed to build it like a model kit or not? I'm sure it isn't parts forming in transformation tho

    Why would this be a model kit? They are just showing the skeleton to show it off. We’ll never get to see it.

    Idk dude figure in front of a white background isn't exclusive to BingoToys. Also, MM-01 pic has a slightly gloss backdrop (look at the feet reflection).

    Lighting along with the background is almost identical. Idk usually these companies don’t like to share similar looking photography set ups.

    The background is freaking white of course it's gonna look similar.
    Well it looks like BingoToys, Magnificent Mecha, Weijiang and Toyworld are the same company because the lighting and backdrop are similar.

    If this manages to be as fun and durable as MPM12, but looks like ThreeZero, I would buy it in a heartbeat no question.

    What is cost looking like?

    Me too, BUT if its cheap(sh) and is in ThreeZero scale, I'll bite.

    I was also talking about the warmth of the lighting. They aren’t just brightly lit and have a white background. They both share a specific warm yellow tint that neither of the above have.

    Could be a new company, could be Bingotoys. Either way no reason to get agitated over it.

    Yeah sorry for being hostile. Kinda stressed from work and should have just rest instead of browsing the internet.
    Either way, I am stoked for this figure

    My nitpick is the hands being very small looking.
    Does that shockwave transform as well?
