    Though the character holds no particular importance to me, I've been keeping my eyes on Mobine since it was announced because it looks bad as hell. I am a bit confused, however. Sometimes it has been presented as add-on pieces for PCC figures like Heavytread. Here, it looks like a massive self-contained figure. Anyone have any insight?

    It has a central figure with the add-on pieces attached. Both form separate tanks in alt mode:

    I don't believe we have seen the central bot without the add-on pieces yet, but in one image we clearly the Mobine resin prototype has a 2nd head in it's chest.

    Missile pods are in DESPERATE need of paint to pick out those armaments, and I just learned the sword is actually two big pieces. He is so on the radar it isn't even funny. I just want to see more of the base bot. Both he and Assaulter are pretty damn big.

    No, we haven't seen it yet. The most likely speculation is that it's his original form, Megatronus Prime.

    Nearly everything there looks spectacular. I have Brosdside and the Deluxe Insecticons preordered and they really can't get released soon enough. The Fallen is an instant preorder as soon as one comes up.

    I'm not as enamored with the Stunticons as everyone else seems to be. They look far too generic. The only way people know that's Breakdown is the car mode. Do we even know if the other one is Dead End or Wildrider yet? I sure cant tell. Fansproject usually does a great job with sticking to the source character while adding their own tweaks but so far the Stunticons have failed on that front IMO. Hopefully painted protos with change my mind but at this point I'll probably wait for TFC to hopefully release Menasor.

    Good to see that MT is doing some progress with Mobine, though I like the military colours better.

    Also, I'm kinda disapointed that FP didn't show any painted or finalized figure for the non-stunticons. I mean, if they were to keep their NOV-FEB schedule they should show us more.

    The rest is a pass for me.

    Don't get the color scheme for fallen. He's black but the attachment pieces ate in fatigues?
    On a side note, I've been a skeptic on the MT -FT relationship. I'm slightly more persuaded now. I could actually see the fallwn coming into FTs storyline.

    Uh no. There are two entirely different color schemes: military camp and black/orange.


    I bet the black orange is more sought after due to the WWI comics, so they release the military version first.

    Why would the fatigues be eaten? :lol 

    There are two color designs that MT has shown for Mobain - the fatigue version, and that for the not-Fallen.

    fantastic, but agreed on the tone of the orange,,maybe add a slight red tone to the orange to give it that darker look.

    Wait, so are you guys saying this recent pic off the fallen is the final color scheme? Looks very early proto scheme to me. I'm not going to judge it until its official.

    ^I'm at least guessing it's still a prototype. The missiles need to be painted.
