    Maybe all the MFT headmasters should be in one thread? There isn't much news individually.

    Kong Ming is a good name for Brainstorm. He is Zhuge Liang from the Three Kingdoms period.

    I prefer a scientist name for him, though. More inline with his bio spec.

    Seconded, and chromedome’s could be better (though I know he has tilt).

    Reckon we’ll see a scorp or fort max (based on the toyworld/IF ones or otherwise)?

    Just a Scorponok to finally complement Toyworld Infinitor would be great. A more articulated Fort Max on top of that would be amazing.

    See, I don't agree with that. I think Chromedome's just fine as is, probably because he's a simpler more straighforward design, so the engineering doesn't get in the way of articulation. But Weirdwolf however feels awkward and dated, all because UT decided to get creative with the transformation. Although I imagine they did it they way they did just so the wolf mode would look more anatomically correct, which is commendable, but well, here we are having this conversation.

    Man, I don't see *jack* that's original to the UT figure. This guy looks like a 100% new sculpt, and I'm gonna get him.

    Pretty much same engineering (plus improvements), with new sculpting. MFT set a high bar with these OS KOs.

    Yep, I agree. I like infinitor, but with the wide set ratchets and a couple of so so articulation points, I’d love a bit of an update.

    Yeah, i definitely feel there’s more of a case for updating weirdwolf, but I’m super partial to ‘above and beyond’ ankle articulation and like chromosome a lot as a character. I’m glad a lot of people like him as is though!

    I know I’m keeping my fingers crossed for one!
