X Transbots teased that like 5 years ago or something i guess
I'd prefer this.
It's possible, but I kind of doubt it. MMC's done a G1 upgrade set in the past with Carnifex, so I imagine they thought about it for D-Zef. The amount of different parts on pin hinges that can't really be swapped is the reason MMC gave for making two releases.
Of course, it's fair to say that Incursus was also originally planned to come in two versions because of the pin hinges, but on the other hand:
Incursus has never been up for pre-order, whereas both versions of D-Zef already are
An engineering workaround for D-Zef might not be possible in the same way (just speculating)
I think the much simpler explanation is that D-Zef was put up for pre-order too early, similar to the Malum Malitia and Saltus.
Using my own experience as reference:
Malum Malitia: Pre-ordered 7/19/2015. Released: 9/19/2017
Saltus: Pre-ordered 10/25/2016. Released: 5/1/2019
Um, I just got an "in-stock in three days" notice for continuum from chosen prime. That can't be right though, can it? Have we even seen a final production copy?
Hey @Chosen Prime - any news?
I got one too, I think it's a mistake and it just happened to be when it was supposed to arrive. I have received notices before from them that were incorrect; Generations War for Cybertron Smokescreen was the last one I received a notice for and it was incorrect.
@LazyAza have you heard any news about d-zef and why it seems he is being pushed back?
Listed too early million other things need to finish first.
So more then likely d-zef will be a 2020 release then?
no, it will be 2022 release
I'm not waiting that long lol, if it doesn't come 2020 I'll get planet-x version even though I really like mmc better there wait times are crazy because they give out these false dates and I for one am getting tired if it. I can wait a couple years but when it "seems" you purposely mislead with your dates I for one want to move on. And this is coming from someone who collects mostly mmc(90%+ of my collection) and considers them the best chug+/idw third party in the game.
Maybe with extra decker time they'll shrink the arms
Imbalance for proportions for me
FYI, @Paik4Life mentions (at ~31:10) in his preview video of Mnemo that D-Zef was supposed to be shown off at TFCon, but MMC realized later they forgot to ship him.
Lol poor guys who wanted to see him. I mean maybe they’ll show him along with their Star Saber at a later reveal.
That's a bummer.
We've also had Stellarus in molded color for a while now too I'd assume both will be at TFcon in March then.
Did you mean Star Convoy? It's highly unlikely they'll do a Star Saber.
They've hinted that they have a Star Saber prototype already worked up.
When or where has this been hinted? All I've seen is the quote below.
I've seen chatter about it on Facebook. I'll see if I can dig it up.
I don't know everything we have in the pipeline, but I am 99% sure we don't have a Star Saber being worked on.
