Anyone in the US have a set of Rainmakers they want to get rid of?
Good I am not the only 1 still thinking about getting a set, even if it is just to round up the MFT seekers
I'm tired of waiting for MST to repaint their Seekers, plus I want to have the right ones for advertising an upcoming product I'm doing.
I saw them cheap at aliexpress
Thanks. I like to buy used first if I can though so I can help someone get rid of something they don't want anymore.
I was able to get a set.
And that bullshoot Trailbreaker
Anyone knows how to contact Mechanic Studio or MFT? Need to remind them of these character before they go KO-frenzy the MS Menasor or Devastator

Well I got my Mechanic Studio "Poison" (MFT Octane) & he's not to bad, a bit small but otherwise fine.
I'd like to see someone make him a "wing shield" that he can hold in robot mode and that slips over the tail in plane mode.
I wonder if they have considered doing a Titan's Return Optimus homage I checked and it seems you can actually even cram the Croc-Optimus headmaster inside him too -if the remoulded the neck mount to make it a Headmaster there is enough interior space to store it still.
Also I'm sure if they did the sword with it they'd get some use out of that one other toys too as it's a nice generic Optimus & Nemeis sword design.
I do wish I could make sense of how the flight stand (the logo ones they often use in promotions) is supposed to attach though - anyone got any ideas on that ?
Anyway He's nice and I like him.
Hi fellas, anyone can notice which improvements has now Magnus 2.0? ShowZ listed an anime version. Thank you very much!.
[Pre-Order] MechFansToys MF-48A City Commander Ultra Magnus Anime Version 2.0
Hi, I have the non-metallic MFT dinobots and I really regret getting them as I think they look dull and low-quality, plus some of them were way too hard to transform. I am wondering what you find so premium about them or what you are comparing them with.. maybe I am too demanding, maybe we have different ideas about premium
Yeah, I'm curious about that too.
I thought it was a simple reissue, at first, but then I double checked the box of my MFT Magnus and - while the figure looks aesthetically identical to this new one - it doesn't come with the 'A' on the product code (plus I guess the name is different too). Not that I plan to replace it anyway - it's still one of my favourite in the entire collection - but I'm wondering what this 2.0 fuss is about, now.
Might be a different shade of blue?
The good point is that MFT drops the price very soon to 20-25€. And I sold my Magnus 2.0 a few months ago, but I miss him. DKW ShowZ always has a little bit expensive prices for MFT figures. I'll keep and eye on it, this Magnus 2.0A it's a good chance to have him again.
It is indeed, you're right.
This morning I didn't notice, as I was outside and on my phone.
I just double checked the MFT catalogue over at Show.Z and, currently, there are two separate listings for their Magnus.
One is this, available for purchase
which looks to be a simple reissue of the same figure we already own.
This one below, on the contrary
features a more cartoon accurate colour scheme, which appears to be based on the latest deco from Magic Square.
Needless to say, I preordered one. I'm always in for added toon fidelity (plus, I'm not really into the armour concept/design of the upcoming MST and NA upcoming offerings).
MS went for both approaches. All they need now is one with Minimus Ambus and they'll have all bases covered.
I can't notice the differences yet!.
well, that is where our stories differ.
i have the metallic set and everything about that set is lush. having owned both sets DX9/MFT i can tell you the MFT set is far superior. especially if you want your slag to be able to stand on his own or you like a snarl that wont cut you up when you go to alt him. i wont even touch on sludge or grim stuff.
but for me all and all the paint apps, the corrections that were made to the DX9 molds make these bots superior. also, having the ability for all of them to hold their weapons properly is a huge plus. the new head, new arms and all the other good stuff just works for me.
unfortunately you got the lesser version of that mold. if i had the non metallics i dont think i would be that happy either personally.
to really appreciate these bots you really need to have the metallics in hand. they absolutely pop and are very well done. these guys have great 3p paint apps. for their price they are fantastic. they have better paint apps than most and are durable as hell.
i just feel this way about them and like i said it will be very hard to top these. it might not be worth it to even try.
The new one basically features a slightly darker and less saturated shade of blue, compared the the regular 48. Overall, it looks more toon accurate to me.
Oh, that's why I can't spot differences... I'm colourblind
I live my own reality.
