    I will never be able to afford this, but I think this might be my most wanted TF toy, apart from Carnifex. This thing looks incredible.

    I am not so sure why they need the thin arms option. What's the use of that???

    Those sticks are not pretty at all but at least it's optional.

    I'm hoping no more that 400. Utopia has been shelf warming at that price, I didn't go for him till he hit 330.

    There's a local preorder price of around $500 shipped, preorder up for a few days only, for December (damn, I hate that time, lol)!

    These guys have so many projects going on and I'm sure it will be sometime early in the year. Its gotta be.

    I just saw this thing and they should have made the Headmaster bigger. He looks awesome though

    Man I feel like posting in this thread is a necro. Thought he's been done for months? Maybe they're waiting for Utopia to sell through so vendors don't balk at another slow moving citybot?

    'Course it's not like MT isn't staying busy with other releases these days...

    You must be new. Big projects like this take time. The QC checks on something this complicated must be insane, and then you have to ship the beast overseas.

    In the meantime, MT's been busy with inferno, grapple, Katana, hi-med, Iron will. Vulcan is due in a month

    Throw in a lunar new year shut down

    So chill

    Wonder if it will get cancelled? Not like that hasn't before. Perhaps Maketoys thinks that the focus has moved to MP-style and the appetitie for big citybots has dropped enough to make the rest of the project unprofitable?

    So will I, but I wonder what is taking so long. There are always pictures every few months, and they do have a lot of other projects. This summer for sure hopefully, Hopefully they will release one Citybot after the next.
