    And for pics of what you'll see once it's opened up:
    MMC OX Assaultus

    IMHO, the real goal is to get that blue cylindrical ring to slide up and down on its post freely. Shoulder rotational freedom is the RESULT of that.

    My personal favourite Vortex colour scheme, I wonder how this version would look in these colours.

    Don't know why it's been like this for a while.

    Your image didn't load, but given the file name yes foc vortex was an interesting departure for the characters usual mostly grey look with the red n gold. Though I do think such radical departures have the inevitable effect of making some incarnations of characters like that look like entirely different ones. As he's basically stolen Armada Demolisher's scheme.

    It's because this website is severely outdated.
    i love FOC Vortex's Iron Man colours. Apparently it's based on a misentruprated version of the G1 toy's boxart.

    It's called hot-linking.

    Every other website I use regularly lets me just ctrl v an image itself. Even my email does that and that '/ glitch is still here.

    Well you clearly don't understand the issue here chief.

    Hot-linking still causes the glitch.

    That's what my response was... People should not be doing hot-linking. Doing so is a fail.


    Seems some people don't understand what hot-linking does. For the most part, TFW doesn't like it as it steals away traffic.

    Pray for them to reissue it after Probus or getting price gouged by a smaller vendor/individual. Got one of the last ones from the original run on Ages Three and Up in March, when I ordered my Impetus and Fraudo reissues. No one else had it at the time and haven't seen a single store with it since.

    Not really a glitch but moreso Fandom/Wikia's bullshit domain system.

    https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/transformers/images/5/58/Foc-vortex-game-profile.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120827154017

    That right there is what causes the image to fail to load.

    But yeah, while i'm not a fan of FOC Vortex's color scheme, definitely would be an interesting sight as a recolor of MMC's.

    Ages Three and Up was one of the last two places in North America that had it AFAIK, they were gone within a week of me ordering mine from Toy Arena. (the other of the last two places). Toy Arena had two when I ordered mine, and their last one was also gone a few days later.

    Not at decent/MSRP prices, no, sadly.

    Maybe a PSX-exclusive second run, if MMC is unsure of enough sales to warrant a full mass re-release?

    But considering Fraudo and Impetus are up to at least their third runs already AFAIK, I'd imagine there's gotta be ever-growing demand for the upgrade set as more and more people get in on the team.

    I’ve been following this set since the news of its release I just never had the proper funds to purchase all of them until now, but I’m willing to pay a markup
