    God dayum. Roddy's looking pretty great here, for all my criticisms of MTMTE / LL I still rather like Rodimus' design from that series. Victory Leo just looks crazy awesome, Zoid-esque.

    I'm a bit bothered that Victory Leo looks rather more canine than leonine. Lions have far larger shoulders and forelimbs by comparison. That's probably for the sake of the combination proportions, though, but it stands out to me. Still looks badass, anatomy aside.

    Roddy looks amazeballs.

    I’m surprised by the Rodimus since I assumed(wrongly), that they were only making the Furai model version. So I guess he gets both! Which is cool, still makes me wish they used the originally teased 2000s Rodimus design. But hey, we get 2 versions of MTMTE Rodimus released recently next to each other, good for choice.

    Seeing Victory Leo gets me interested on using him with Dark Star Saber. The black and the orange popping air against him.

    Yeah Victory Leo has strong wolf vibes here's hoping is due to the picture being a profile shot. As for Rodimus he looks great! I just wish I cared for the character...

    Really hope they pick up their model kit line sometime soon. I want to see more of their own designs.

    Beyond the proportion issues I mentioned above, I also note that all the spiked ridges along the back evoke raised hackles, which is also a lupine feature.

    Yeah, the site's a mess. Wouldn't load properly, I kept clicking pre-order and it didn't show up in cart...until 16 were in cart, but I can't get the cart to load to remove the rest. Good luck everyone!

    The anticipation is killing me. Why can’t I just give D4Toys my money for Star Saber Black Ver.? :(

    Finally! I have an email confirmation and a charge on my card for both the Star Saber and the Prime model kit. Although I'll believe it when I have it!

    Anyone else shocked that Optimus is still up considering Flame Toys said Bluefin had 300 available for SDCC sales?

    Managed to get one as well, I'm guessing the demand was much higher than they anticipated - I wasn't able to complete check out until 9:18:21 AM :D
