    Lol. I snapped my Aranea in half at the waist the first time I tried transforming her. Ham hands.

    You have not payed attention while reading MTMTE's last issue.

    That and/or he just doesn't have a heart. Man, that's like hating Rewind..... Which MMC needs to do!

    I was not too fond of Rewind, but I can't say I hated him. He was just... annoying.

    If Nickel is the size of Maketoys Tailgate, that's perfect. The group render made her look quite a bit bigger, though.

    Sign me up. I want. This is a done deal. At least, provided MMC don't screw something else up.

    Now please reissue Cynicus in non-breaking form and we're in business.

    Ohh man looking at Tesarus and the first thing I thought was MMC will hopefully remold this to a bad ass Tankor. Then looking at Helex and I automatically think that it would make a nice homage to 2006 Botcon Optimus Primal & Cybertron Crumplezone so Override won't feel alone.

    Crumplezone is a good idea, I had the original one, hated it, and sold it.

    Grandus is a natural fit.

    It would be TOTALLY AWESOME if Nickel came with a rifle-mode only plastic rifle in the shape of Vos' rifle mode.

    I like my Cynicus figure quite a lot, but I'm terrified to transform it.

    I also want to pose my action figures using Vos' rifle mode.

    It would be REALLY COOL and not very expensive, production-wise, to make a non-transforming rifle-mode Vos.

    WINK.

    I think I already suggested that eons ago back when we were discussing the kultur upgrade sets potential content if that ever happens but yeah I figure stuff like that might just end up packaged with the remaining figures also. One of those things I've wanted ever since I got Cynicus simply because he has the most bad ass gun alt ever but yeah he's stupid impractical for like 99% of figures including mmc's own djd so a solid mold accessory version of him would be lovely.

    Mine hasn't broken yet, but that's because I don't touch him. He's definitely fragile, and his joints are incredibly loose.

    I transformed Cynicus a couple of times when I first got him (second batch) and had no issues, but he's been posed in the same pose on a shelf ever since.

    I'd love that.
    Especially since my Cinicus back broke after the sixth(?) transformation and later on his cufflinks broke just by touching them.
    First batch i assume.

    Oh, no, I don't have one, but it seems that a lot of people have had breakage issues, so I've held off on getting him until I can get one which won't shatter on me. I do want him, but the thought of spending so much money on something which has common breakage issues doesn't really appeal to me...

    Actually, in all honesty, I have none of the DJD figures, but I want to get them all when I'm able to afford them. Work's not paying a lot right now though (long story) so it might be a while.
    Got to see Anarchus in person the other day and he's gorgeous. Even some of their less-impressive figures are still appealing to me, even just looking at the packaging. Then again, I've never seen a local retailer selling third-party figures before, so I guess seeing a whole bunch up-close at a local convention makes a difference.

    I've got Cynicus and Anarchus on pre-order from Kapow to go with Tarn, and I would love to see all these guys in a cabinet in my office, but honestly for me it depends on what else is released and how much I can afford. Pretty much all the third parties are on their A-game and it's starting to get quite hard to decide between releases, especially when existing purchases get made redundant by new, improved figures.

    All that said, Nickel and The Pet have a place on my "buy" list for now. They're both very unusual designs and they'll stand out nicely :)

    Hail, hail, the gang's all here!

    She looks great. Happy to see that they are actually producing her. I'd also be fine with her only having one alt mode but any which way they serve her up I'm buying.

    also, is it wrong to hope this project ends up with the codename "YourMom" ?
