    Figure it’s probably the best straight reuse there would be and either deco would be suitable as rotorbolt

    Sadly I'd say chances are slim to none it'll ever happen. Sucks cause it would indeed look pretty rad as I already visualized how to apply bolts deco nicely to him earlier in the year.

    That would be a killer release, unfortunate that he’s an obscure character cause that looks sweet

    Guess I’ll have to track down a universe obsidian and hftd tomahawk and make a deluxe rotorbolt

    I'd be super down for a Rotorbolt. He'd make a great TFCon exclusive, I think.

    I always liked the idea of doing a MMC Oberon and Titanika two-pack as a TFcon exclusive. I think their original toy colors would be cool. I always preferred Obsidians toys colors anyways. And looking back at Strikas original toy, she's primarily white or silver(especially if you look at the stock photo on the cardback) with gold detailing, in addition to indigo and black, that makes her look very regal. Call them SG versions of the characters if it makes you happy. Although I'd prefer it if the story were that they were their original Autobot selves, before Megatron corrupted them.

    Although if they did Rotorbolt, that'd be cool too. Just do a Blastcharge repaint of Titanika with him.

    Blastcharge would be so awesome, especially if he used the Roadbuster head.

    My Obsidian (and Strika) are on the way. I'm really hoping to get a Tankor out of Helex (that'd be my first MMC mold double dip). Not sure who to mold share for the other Generals, but it'd be great to have most (if not all) of them.

    Just got my Oberon yesterday--he's fantastic! I've been more than impressed with both him and Titanika, so I'm thinking of getting Calidus soon.

    I got mine yesterday... and I love it! Strika is on the way as well.

    He’s easy to transform. He’s possible. He’s fun. He just looks great..

    Now I REALLY want a Jetstorm, Tankor, and Thrust from MMC!

    In the mean time at least the deluxe jet drone and mega tankor look good with them, throw in a clobber and overboard as diagnostic drones and it’s a good setup

    I guess I never got to talk about this one:

    Ob.jpg

    I was pretty underwhelmed by the fact that MMC Turben didn't look like the IDW Whirl we all know, love and want, and just like most people I suspect this was because they needed to reuse the mould in some way and that was clearly Oberon, an updated version of Beast Machines Obsidian. I honestly couldn't care less about the character but since I already got MMC Titanika (Based on Strika, a character I actually do care) and managed to find Oberon at a pretty reasonable price, I decided to bite the bullet and I was pleasently surprised.

    The thing that first shocked me was the wonderful use of colours. Neither videos nor photos do justice to this paintjob, the different combination of tones is much more striking in person, the metallic red especially pops and gives this figure a much more majestic presence. The toy itself is also pretty nifty, it has a really solid feel and tons and I mean, TONS of articulation, the figure is really posable and brings a lot of playability.

    I have a few issues with it though and that's mostly about his accessories. I don't really like the little missile pods since they seem out of place and are really noticeable in a bad way. Turben came with a cool sword so why couldn't they also give Oberon a more interesting weapon?

    Ob2.jpg
    And here he is with his partner in crime. I'm actually surprised about how they're better looking figures than their more popular mould mates (Roadbuster and Whirl respectively). As I said, I really dig this new purchase and is actually tempting me to get Turben now despite that he doesn't look at all like MTMTE Whirl (and is a much blander-looking figure colour-wise to be honest).

    Also, I wish that MMC created some extra weapons for these two, especially Titanika who is missing some sort of melee weapon (a big mace would be perfect).

    So I've been thinking about it, and I plan to get this guy pretty soon. I'm especially excited because this will be my first ever third party figure.

    I'd also love to get the matching Strika figure (Titanica right?) But I can't find it in stock anywhere.

    Regardless this is a great figure and I very much look forward to getting it.

    Yeah, she seems to be sold out nearly everywhere (I need her too so I've been keeping an eye from time to time).
