    This guy is gonna come out. I remember a few months back or it was the end of last year he was supposed to come out or was it the beginning of this year, but anyways, eventually there was a posting for pre-sale. It sucks big time but as long as the pre-sale is still up then I'm sure he will come out

    Yes, and it's becoming the equivalent of a monthly cycle, if you know what I mean. Next month I'll be sure to bring the Midol.

    Do people want it done right?

    I like the figure, my only complaint is that his engine scoops are too narrow and too tall...other than that...

    I don't support 3P much, but I am looking into a few here and there mainly MP, and this one looks nice aside from my minor gripe.

    I want it done right and want it sooner than later...patience is not the easiest thing. The fact is it has been a long time and its dragging. But we also have to give him the benefit of the doubt that he is making progress. If he hasn't said cancelled there should be no reason to think its cancelled.

    Will the timing of this between announcement and delivery be that much different from other 3p releases? I think the difference is that those others bombard us with promo pics regularly, especially BadCube and FansToys.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. If I start listening now, can it still happen?:D 


    BB was the last new MP mold I bought. Looking at the last few and what's coming I may be cooling on MP.

    Give me Jazz, Galvatron and the Insecticons and I'd be very happy.

    Good question.

    If he gets it to market this year he'll certainly still have MMC beat. When I look at their previews I can't even take them seriously any more.

    The short summation of SpinGate2015 (Sorry, couldn't help trying to be funny. Trying being the operative word,lol):

    Omnigonix will release him when the product is ready, or he could choose not to release him at all. We're in a wait and see holding pattern, so pop a cold one and kick back with your favorite snack :D :drunk :popcorn

    ...aaaaannnd CANCELED!....again...for the 3424 time....just kiddin' - sorry, couldn't ressist!
    The problem is that they announced the figure last year throwing out picture after picture really quick, but since then almost nothing happened!
    Especially with their announced release date of July which isn't far away, people expect some pictures to see some progress at least.
    Maybe the problem is that they are no real company, so the process of finding production plants and distribution ways is quite difficult and takes time AND money, which could be the main problem. Imagine you build a fantastic figure from scratch and decide to produce it, would you have the money to do that?
    Maybe they should have sold the figure and design better to a well known company like BC or FT and let them produce the figure.
    I really hope that they come up with some updates in July when it was about to be released. I have him on preorder, but I don't believe that it will be released till the end of the year or even gets canceled...
    Omni, please do me a favour and proof me wrong! Surprise everybody and show us the finished product next month!

    I am OK to wait a few more months, you can always cancel it. I mean some of the biggest 3rd party delays, and even the official delays too. My biggest problem is I'm not happy with current design and I hope they will resolve a few obvious weakness like the huge chest (in this case is a bad thing), head, back side. don't give us a half finish product.

    One thing i dislike is that Spinout seems to always be bent at the knees. Seems like if you were to pose him with his legs straight, he would awkward some how.

    Huh? He's straight-legged in plenty of the pictures on the first page. Otherwise, that's what's called "dynamic posing".

    Nah, most photos have awkward bend knees, because he is bigger and taller when he is next to his twins.

    I don't know why that should even matter, because Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are non-identical "fraternal" twins.

    In fact, it's almost better.

    Sunstreaker's defining character trait is pride. And what's the typical thing that siblings typically lord over the other, as the definitive proof that they're the superior one? Yup, height.

    This is going to happen. I just placed my preorder. I'm so happy Spinout will be made.
