    I love how we've gone from blacked out shadows of prototypes to drawings that aren't even designs of the toy! It's a backwards step, yet somehow it feels much more satisfying!

    I hope OP does Blurr too. I don't like Buzzing, he's too blocky.

    Pretty soon, reveals will consist of photographs of babies who may one day grow up to become designers who may have an idea that might be turned into a sketch that could become a prototype that... Well, you get the idea. :) 

    I'm definitely up for an MP Arcee; let's hope the sketch prompts some other 3Ps to reveal versions that are a little further along.

    Honestly, I feel like this isn't even worthy of starting a thread. It doesn't even look like an actual transformable toy design - more like something a comic book artist would sketch at a convention.

    If they can pull that off, I'd buy the hell out of that. I don't see it as possible and still transform.

    Next step will be, "I burnt my bread in the toaster and the pattern on it kinda looks like Optimus Prime! Auction for this unique 1-of-1 toastshot is now live on eBay!"

    Except for one thing of course: Open Play's Springer went from a line drawing to a grey protoytpe in just over a month. (23rd August 2016 - 26th September 2016) OpenPlay notSpringer (MP scaled)
    I assume these guy's have been beavering away quietly on a number of characters for a while now. Possibly there'll be a long delay till actual production as a new company may not have the clout to get factory time quickly but they certainly aren't dragging their heals.

    As far as articulation and/or transformation goes, the only thing that blatantly jumps out at me as needing major changes in the sketch is the thigh/hip connection.
    The rest looks detailed enough that for the most part it could translate to a figure with relative ease. Depending on what ends up sacrificed for transformation, it even looks like there's room for some Figuarts-style articulation at the shoulders in the form of a butterfly joint and in the neck where it meets the head and body with a double ball peg.
    They also need to figure out the shoulder pads, because as it is, they're just floating there.

    That head and face design is PERFECT though. If they can keep that and translate that into 3D, that's gonna take cash from wallets all day long.
