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

    As far as I know Omni are under the wing of KFC/X-Transbots, and are using their factory etc for production etc.

    Omni has said up-thread that "to the best of their knowledge" (or something like that) it is not being made in the same factory as KFC, and someone else in the know with KFC also said somewhere up-thread that it wasn't actually being made by KFC. KFC not only makes its own figures but also acts as a distributor for other 3P figures, I believe, and in this case is just acting as distributor from what's been said.

    Every flippin' month…
    1. Cancelled.
    2. KFC
    3. So obviously crap (due to #2, nevermind contradicting #1)
    4. Fact-checking (stating #1-3 are incorrect)

    The worst part is I'm pretty sure all four are by the same respective individuals each month…

    I'm almost wishing for a thread lock at this point rather than assuming any notice is actually news.

    Ah, we've reached this point of the cycle again. So what's next, Omni jumps in and says "not cancelled," then speculation of the next figure they're working on followed by nitpicks of this figure and then back to the "any news?"

    The sad thing is that #1-4 (5 if you count Omni coming on and saying "not cancelled") is exactly what the pattern/cycle is with this thread. It's partially Omni's fault for not providing any info at all, but as they have said, when there is something to post Omni will post. Until then, we can only assume they are making progress with this project.

    As far as I lnow they are just using KFCs distribution ways, not the factory....

    ...if it takes much longer...maybe Omni's Sunstreaker will be KOed before they manage to bring out the original figure?

    Well, it looks like Badcube is going to give Omnigonix a run for its money if the hints mean anything on facebook.

    is the shoe named sunstreaker or something?

    Could easily be Bumblebee, or Seaspray (yellow engine section)

    they seem to be doing minibots

    EDIT: just checked their facebook page
    holy crap
