    Just posted to the Mech Ideas facebook page - Demolition Crue 03 - GAUNTLET! Looks like they took over the project from Mach 5.

    Hells yes. Can't remember exactly how the old Mach-5 proto looked, have there been any tweaks or changes?

    For that matter, did some quick glancing at my Twin Twist to figure out how tall Gauntlet will be... looks to be 1-2 heads taller than MakeToys Swerve.

    Which feels just right.

    Awww yeah! More Wreckers is always awesome! And they said it'll be at a lower price than Mach 5 had, which is even better!

    ...
    I went from 'YES!' to 'no...' in the span of half a second.

    While I'm glad the Demolition Crue is back... I lost interest in this mold when Mach 5 had him so stubby and short... Just... sorry, but not my cup of tea.

    I am glad that those who wanted this fellow have another chance at getting him though.

    Dang, I'm glad this is finding it's way out but I wish it could get a size increase. Based on panels with them together in the Aequetas chamber, I got the impression the top of Ironfist's head came up to about Topspins's chin. I can see why they gave Geminus such a wide stance in that shot, standing straight he'd make Gauntlet look tiny. I might still pick it up regardless, but the small size is more noticeable than ever in these shots.
