    Well, back in The Before Times, finished colour photos of the product were a sign that the release was imminent, and could be between 1 and a couple of months away. A picture of the product with the finished box meant that it might be as little as a couple of weeks away.

    Things have been a bit ... wonky the last year or so. However, now that things are, in some places, kinda edging back to normality, and also now that Chinese New Year is over, there has been a bit of a flood of announcements, if not a flood of releases. I would guess that Octane will start showing up at Chinese vendors by the end of April.

    But that's still just a wild guess on my part :)

    This is a pretty spectacular looking Octane especially for the size.

    I'm not super familiar with the character... From what we've seen so far, how do you MFT folks like this figure, in terms of cartoon accuracy?

    Honestly I don't remember him having much screen time in the cartoon, but he seems pretty accurate to me, if you consider reality + the difficulty in the alt modes for the character especially at the legends scale. I guess they could've done a fake chest to flatten it a bit, but tbh I prefer it the way MFT did it

    He had a few episodes with the storyline about "stealing" trypticon and hiding out from the 'Cons with Sandstorm. I'd like he looks pretty close to the cartoon, or at least as close as we're gonna get for a while I think.

    Thanks guys.
    Yeah, at a first glance this new MFT bot seemed a little disproportionate to me, but I must say that's also kinda faithful to that cartoon illustration. Also, I agree with @MagnusAfterDark, at a Legends scale - and also considered how relatively simple was MFT Astrotrain's engineering/transformation - this Octane is probably as good as it can get.

    Wao!! Already?!

    In terms of reveal I think he was after hot rod and blietzwing.
    Verry cool to see less known character from g1 in legend+ format. Since he is a triple changer, he can easily fit in a regular legend display I think

    Awesome! For some reason I love the fact he's a little smaller than Astrotrain... Always pleased to see (even slight) variations in these bots' heights and proportions.
    I bet this Octane is gonna look fab in any regular Legends display.

    Is it me or the color line of the wing is on the wrong side?

    That's what I am wondering! So looking forward to more S3 characters!

    I sold my entire MFT collection, except the metallic dinos, once Magic Square started. I just recently bought the MFT Astrotrain and I am definitely in for this guy and Blitzwing as well, they fit in pretty seamlessly with MS.

    Also, the MFT Headmasters keep whispering in my ear "buy us too", but I've been able to resist so far.

    Man I like to mix and match; All the different sizes produced by the different companies make for lots of options in setting up your armies/Casts! Lest we forget, the only Rodimus and Springer figures are from MFT.

    Here's another unpopular opinion: MFT Galvatron is a more imposing shelf presence than NA Darius. It's true. Darius is NOT in my main S3 display; MFT's is the placeholder for IF's badass version!
