    I've been very impressed recently with the designs being created by Mechanic Studio and manufactured/published/distributed by Mech Fans Toys. The designs appear to be cute, yet mostly G1 cartoon-styled toys that scale with Hasbro's mainline legends toys.

    They appear to be original designs, which is surprising since MFT is mainly known for making upscale KOs of other legend sized toys. They should be congratulated for a move in this direction. Each toy also comes with a KO of something from the new diaclone series... which seems to be a gimmick unique to MFT.

    I stared this thread to be all about Mechanic Studio. Share your photos and questions and news about Mechanic Studio here.

    Does anyone know if Mechanic Studio is the work of one designer? Is it a just a sub-line or something more?

    4ADAA2BF-53E8-4F00-8ADD-CC9625777174.jpeg Here’s their upcoming mini Omega Supreme: MechFansToys MS-11 Mini Sentry

    Obviously it’s a retool of a diaclone Mech.

    This box art makes me remenisc of simpler times when I could detach one of my extremities and run through the house gleefully swoooshing it in the air like a flying salmon. Can't do that anymore these days what with the thought police all over the place.

    Tracks looks good apart from the wheels. Too bad.

    The Legends stuff looks really nice.

    Oh g
    Sigh.. I love it when these guys make legends bots (huffer) that fit in with generations, but it stings to see designs like Tracks or Hound not produced at a larger scale.

    What a time to be a legends collector. The main problem is pretty much every company has its own scale. I think Mechanic studios in much better than many other legends companies. My ranking is

    1. Magic Square
    2.Mechanic Studios
    3.Newage

    I may get this Red Alert, Tracks and Pipes for different reasons. Pipes for my chug collection, and the other two for my desk.
