Versus Elastic and Apache:
He doesn't have a name yet.
This would probably look like a cross between fanstoys and unique toys. Looks right to me.
Headsculpt is okay. The stylized drawing means nothing.
They said those are the colours they plan on using. Take that how you will.
(Thanks Daimchoc )
I guess its the Springer wars. Interesting, I guess we will see what comes up
Sooo... 4 MP Springers so far? Lol :/
No idea who this company is and they included artwork that is cleaner and better drawn than the G1 toon. So, like, is he going to look like this anime character? Or like, more traditional/G1/lighter colors/not so young looking?
Lastly, they felt like they should come out of the gate and do a figure 3 other (and much more established) companies are doing?
Can you guys in all truth and honesty, tell me this isn't getting boring? Why not come out of the gate and be like "Boom! MP Cliffjumper!" "Boom! A proper MP Arcee." "Wowiewow-wow The first MP member of the Bruticus team!"
Narp. It was Springer.
Missed that. Thanks.
Im curious to see if the wheels really are the shoulders like the pic.
I fully don't get this reveal. A fuzzy picture of a face and a cartoon picture from an unknown company.
Wow way to bring your A game... OpenPlay. I would say you have my attention but you don't.
Outta nowhere, duh fuq?
Let me go cancel my Allen pre order! SIKE!!
Yes yes yes, lack of further information resulting in scathing sarcasm aside I'd say we should just wait and see for more info. For now we have plenty of options to chose from so far. Having another surely doesn't hurt.
another mp springer? how many are we up to now?
I think four? Maybe?
A new unproven company, and they start off with a triple changer? The artwork looks nice. But, this is so far away it's not wise to proceed. I would say move on, and try something else. There's too many proven companies tackling this figure, even if they knock it out of the park, sales will be low. Right?
One for each mode! Wait, he's only a triple-changer. Maybe I need to rethink this...
Im surprised new 3Ps are trying to enter the market with Masterpiece targeted figures. The 3MP market is clearly becoming more and more saturated. And as these figures need to adhere strictly to the toon/toy/comics canon in order to succeed, there is little to differentiate themselves from the abundant competition. There is only a handful of prominent characters untouched at this point, and it seems obvious that those characters are being worked on by someone else already.
I'll reserve judgement, but OpenPlay is really putting themselves in a tough market.
Given the almost religious devotion Fans Toys gets around here I'd be hesitant to release anything as my first release that Fans Toys was already doing, let alone something Fans Toys, ToyWorld, and Unique Toys are all doing.
That being said, the aforementioned borderline religious devotion FT gets makes me want to root for the scrappy underdog, so you got, OpenPlay! Make the most kickass of the Springers to end the Springer Wars!
I'm a FT disciple and am more than willing to see what these guys offer. I can only go by my own experience and personally have never been remotely disappointed in a FT purchase. I know some have. However I have been wowed by others too and new doesn't mean poor quality...Seem to recall Quakewave doing pretty well. The more options there are the better it is for consumers! If they can get close to their artwork and get to market in a reasonable timeframe I would be interested. FT isn't looking up to par yet, Allen...I like it but not totally sold on it. TW....is.....well.
Bottom line, there is room for a timely entry to steal this spot on shelves if they do it right.
I'm not exactly satisfied with any of the current options. So I'd love to see what they've done, Springer was a favorite character as a child- in fact he was sort of a grail as i never could find the toy (I even wrote Hasbro).
I've come to realize that his G1 toon design was especially troublesome and apparently anybody who tries to be really faithful to that is in for problems.
My custom painted Hasbro generations Springer on the other hand scales well with Hot Rod, the other MP cars and is gorgeous. So I'm not even sure I need an MP. A OS version of the generaltions toy with a couple tweaks like improved hands would be a home run for me.
But, yes I want to see what they've done. maybe it will be what I'm looking for.
BTW, Unique Toys Springer is starting to grow on me just a little, but probably not enough.
Hahaha!!! I hope not! Release date would be 2020 then...
I hope we will see some physical prototype in the next days or weeks and that this doesn't turn into a next Transform & roll out - Jazz
