    I love this mold but isn't this like the 5th repaint after the original, metallic, G2 and Fireblast? I wish Planet X could instead release some pictures of their IDW Grimlock (Cacus) as well, since it was "supposedly" supposed to get a more thorough reveal last month.

    Isn't PX's IDW Grimlock still in the pre-prototype stages? PX isn't really known for their haste regarding any matters :lol 

    TBH, the decos I'm really looking forwards towards, and I'm truly surprised we haven't seen yet, is the metallic versions of the rest of the dinobots since they've done Vulcun and Caelus metallics. That, and I'd really kill for the metallic G2 of Vulcun.

    Actually, when it was first revealed at one of last year's TFCons, it was supposed to have a release date of January 2021.
    https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/attachments/6fd4eb62-decf-4df8-8a24-667fb59a7ce0-jpeg.28825629/

    They then back tracked and said they would have a prototype reveal in January 2021 instead.

    Neither have come to fruition :/

    And you're not surprised? Planet X was never a company to do things with haste. COVID put a LOT of damper on all companies and factories. Did you really not expect further delays? I'm not trying to directly defend PX, but I do understand that things are out of anyone's hands regarding scenarios like this.

    Those are all good points; I definitely didn't expect them to actually release in January 2021, though since they originally promised that as late as October I was OPTIMISTICALLY thinking this was a figure they had kept under wraps until TFCon that was in the final stages of development. COVID definitely put a damper on many companies' production, but this was a release date made in October 2020, not Octoboer 2019, so I felt that it would have been more accurate. No worries though, as I'm happy to wait for quality. I did naively think they would release some more prototype images in January as they had promised in December, but oh well.

    You want frustrations? I've been harras ... er, requesting PX for the FoC Combaticons for YEARS now and they've gone back 'n' forth regarding making a finalized decision weather to go with it or close the matter for good.

    ............. I'm still waiting :lol

    Too bad that OS KO that was teased years ago never came to fruition.

    At least it keeps the dream alive for us.

    So, so long as people keep buying what they’re selling, there’s hope.

    Sense they seem to be repainted Vulcan all the time i think it would be cool if they did him as transmetal Megatron with a new headsculpt like how Hasbro was going to do it but scrapped it.
