    My mistake, I assumed it was a recent release based on the review's release.

    As much as I enjoy MFT's Camera Brothers, both because they feel like legitimate improvements on PE's original and I feel they're infinitely better (and factually cheaper even at the time) than buying three Refraktors, I do like that they've been making their own molds, especially Huffer/Pipes and Gears. I'm not sure what qualifies the difference between a MechFansToys and MechanicStudio release though.

    "Three-change warrior -- MS-29 Falcon Trailer" gotta be Springer, yeah? Especially with the mohawk and those shoulders.

    What are you talking about ?
    MFT released Blaster last year, it is not a couple of years old.

    Excuse me!!! Announced 1 year and half ago. The point was it's not new, he's saying he just saw a review like it just came out. Some you europeans on here, man, instead of just taking it with stride, miss the language barrier. Freakin' relax!!

    With how....busy MFT has made themselves jumping into other ventures, I'm afraid the Headmasters have been pushed back in the priority department.

    Hopefully I'm wrong.

    In times of Covid, every month lasts a year. So it's been well over a decade by now.

    Some Europeans might comment on the nonsensical nature of such a post.
    But,

    Don't think so. He's being reissued as MS-01 toy colors and toon was done a year or more ago. They've done Astrotrain as MS-18 & MS-20, Blitzwing as MS-28, Octane as MS-27. Maybe a headmaster character?

    I wish they'd stop teasing new shit when they have like five announced figures that still aren't made and a blue cartoon Swoop to release.
    Still waiting on Hot Rod, Octane, Blitzwing...are there more?
    I just wish they'd space out more recolors in between the new designs. I feel like they aren't putting much out lately.

    What language barrier, you said a few years.
    Released 1 year ago to the month is not a few years.
    This coming from the same person who said his Pocket toys are MFT seekers :D .
    Strike 2, 1 more and you are out and I will never listen to anything you say on this forum.
    Some Americans, so thicked headed that they do not even understand what they are typing on the internet and then want to complain about a language barrier.
    At least I can read and type in some other languange as my native tongue.
    Done making it personal Turtlecaps !!!!

    Hmm, good point! Who could it be? If one ignores the three-changer bit "Falcon Trailer" and the shape of the legs, well, could it be...Thunderclash?!

    IDK. I was trying to think of one as I was posting before and just couldn't come up with anything.

    MFT seems to be focusing on both triple changers (Tracks as three molds but I know he isn't technically a triple changer) and headmasters. I'm stumped but excited to see what this is because MFT is filling the gaps that MS and NA aren't doing or haven't attempted yet.

    My only gripe with them is they aren't pumping this stuff fast enough.

    Too much weird space junk, alita, and diaclone crap cluttering their focus. People here were defending all that too...ugh.

    The other stuff has a market - even if that market isn't you. They may be sharing some design and production resources but I got the impression that some of it is pretty much unrelated and made by factories that have nothing to do with other stuff they make - the cartoon animal in a mech i though was cute - maybe not my personal bag, much as those VOTOM looking mechs are nice enough - but not especially my jam (I'd likely buy them anyway if they were 1/3rd cheaper) I really like the E-Boxes I would happily buy another half dozen colours of those.

    To be honest their "Not Diaclone" is interesting me more than actual Diaclone reboot is sometimes - as at least they remould their other versions and don't just release the exact same toy in 3-5 different colours (sometimes with a new head) for astronomical prices like Takara does.

    But we should be getting some Transformers related things very soon, Like Tracks & Twincast. I would like them to make some more of the easy repaints though - Artfire would be nice to have for example.

    But Yes I will defend them making other stuff even if I would like them to make some things (another supermarket repaintgiftset would be nice for example - or another cheaper end Diaclone KO recolour like the white Cosmo Maneuver one they made).

    I'm looking forward to their space themed stuff as much as of even more than the Transformers related items. I'll likely play with it - so that is why I am looking forward to it as it improves and existing play pattern. Where as when they make Transformers characters often I already have those characters in some from - the LUNA themed stuff though is in some sense though "New".

    People in other countries like more than just transformers. Believe it or not, the US is a secondary market for MFT.

    I imagine their primary market is China, and I'd also throw out a guess that TF toys are going to sell better than space, alita, and (maybe) diaclone. Maybe I'm just projecting my bias, but those things really seem like niche markets, except diaclone.

    First apologies about the European statement, that was wrong on my end. It should have been aimed specifically at you for being smug thinking you're the transformers god. 2nd screw off, my post of "a few years" instead of the correct 1.5 years since announcement, AGAIN was just in stride, to the original poster thinking the figure was just released as he thought. "So yeah language barrier" and fyi I speak 3 languages, italian, english and spanish but these aren't the Italian message boards so yeah I'm going to type in english.

    As for the pocket toys in the jinbao seekers thread mistake sure, it was a mistake, but also as I stated in that post, I was first to get them in hand and was at work, grabbed some figures quick, couldn't be caught comparing toys on the clock and was trying to help out the community because so many ppl were asking questions that weren't answered. So while I was trying to be positive and help out in my rush I wrote mft instead of pocket toys. Kill me over it. Many ppl thanked me and it helped them see if the seekers were right for them or not. So I don't really care what one arrogant Dutch man thinks, instead of being appreciative you wanna just be negative and mock ppl for a fault, while I'm trying to help, so no sweat off my back.
