Just got a message saying MS28 Blitzwing will be available June 21st.
Yay on the Blitzwing news! Just got Octane in hand. Real fun to mess with.
So did anyone figure out how to attach MFT Octane to a logo stand yet ?
Hi friends, one question for those who have Tracks. The figure dropped the price to very convincing price of 25€ (more or less depending the seller). What's your opinion of the figure? I saw that it has too many gaps for my likes, but the price is nice now. Thank you so much!.
He's fine, but he's + sized, so bear that in mind.
Yeah! I know, I have more MFT figures, but this Tracks is nice for the actual price. I want to know more opinions.
I have Tracks - I like him enough to buy Road Rage too - but not seen her for sale yet- so I guess she's not actually out yet.
Depends where you look, they have been released at the same time and plenty stores on ebay and aliexpress have it
I just got it, and unluckily I got it just before the price drop, but I really like it. I think that price is a lot more reasonable than the $40 that I paid however. It doesn't have nearly as many moving parts as Octane or Astrotrain. But it's an excellent figure and has some ingenious engineering. It out-masterpieces the Masterpiece, though that is admittedly not the highest bar to clear. Overall I've been very happy with it.
Out of curiosity, what gaps are you referring to? One of the things I like about it is that it's largely gap-free when compared to other takes on the character. There are no gaps on the legs, for example.
Oh, I guess I see what you mean. Those are going to be hard to avoid in a legends class figure though. A lot of those are the actual joints, which have to go somewhere, Plus at least one tension slot for ball joints. I was thinking more in terms of robot mode. In person I don't really notice those gaps, but if they bother you, then maybe that's not the figure for you.
Thanks! Also the gaps on legs and arms, etc.
She's been out for quite a while. She came out like two-three weeks after tracks. She has been in my package from China since April 15th (Yes its been in transit that long). I paid her off in February(Taobao).
I have not really been paying attention. She really has not hit anywhere else?
Okay, I guess it's not for you. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a lot of Legends figures that don't have gaps like that. For the record, the gap on the inner lower leg is a mistransformation, a panel closes that over. Most of the rest are stress slots for ball joints, which you need to avoid breakages or stress marks. You'll find that on any figure with ball joints.
I'm not hard-pressed in anything I'm asking for opinions. Thanks.
No problem! It's a figure that I was excited about when his first announced, and managed to live up to my high expectations for the most part.
I mean he's the wrong scale for me. I wouldn't like the gaps personally but I'd probably overlook them if he was the same size as an MST carbot. I can fudge some MFT bots into legends collection but their carbots are a bridge too far.
I agree. Pretty awesome figure that lives up to my expectations, I have lots of legends+ and goes great, plus I been waiting for a small static alt mode blaster boom box. I think @lilcarus said it once, from years ago in the early days of legends to where they are now. A few slots and gaps don't bother me as much
Thank you so much for all your opinions. I'll buy it.
