    I may be in the minority here, but I'm getting sick of the glut of MP combiners, especially since companies are only focusing on the same 2 or 3 combiners. I mean Devastator, Defensor, Computron, Abominus and Predaking exist yanno.

    I'd much rather hear about efforts to do 3P Legends combiners. Where's my pocket-sized Superion? And when will we get a Legends Devy that isn't garbo?

    Well think of it like this.

    I wanna make something so I can make money. Hey, why don’t I try a menasor? I like menasor. Maybe it’d be fun to make one. MP figures are pretty cool and people buy them so I’ll do that.

    If I’m gonna make my menasor what better time is there to release it then right now? Where people are currently deciding to choose which menasor to buy. Instead of waiting forever to finally make my menasor and nobody is gonna buy cause by then they’ve all gone and bought everyone else’s.

    The rush to market has hurt some efforts though, with reports of QC issues, common breakages, and stability in gestalt mode.

    The only Stunticons that even remotely appeal to me rn are the FT ones, Roadking looks gorgeous and I have to imagine he'll shine in combined mode.

    getting tired of 5 different MP combiners of the same character. Can we get stuff like G1 Browning MP? Zeta is finally doing a Raiden! a combiner nobody has done! im definitely spending money on that. Lets get MP beast wars rolling (and not the same stuff thats already released). Or 3p transformers animated, of stuff that was never released/made. the 3p market feels dull right now.

    1:1 scale MP browning is cool. I guess if this isn’t making you feel good then don’t give it a second look.
    I don’t know which of those referring to who since none of them are finished.

    Well, in a general sense. IIRC both MP Bruticuses have a lot of problems. I don't know about the only complete MP Menasor based on IDW, though.

    Kinda yeah. But just saying a lot of problems isn’t very specific on what’s wrong with those figures. Also why bring in the Transformission menasor? That’s a completely different thing. Plus not all these companies are the same. What’s your point again?

    Drag Strip and Wildrider? So wait, until now these third party companies at least called their product something else, now they are not even bothering with the pretense?

    The thread title is simply to let you know for what characters the thread is. No company is that stupid (I think?) :lol

    Oh geez talk about overkill. Already getting dx9 and xtransbot menasor. Maybe fanstoys too. Too much of a good thing. Companies should go work on defensor or computron or seacons. Get an updated version of those.

    If this scales shorter in gestalt mode I’m interested. I prefer 18inch combiners.

    And people thought 3rd party is dying. If we get the same combiner 4 times within a year or 2, I'd say its pretty freaking alive :lol

    Wow, seems some collectors are only gonna have room for Menasor, Predaking, Briticus, and Devastator!  Now THIS is a Combiner War!

    Pretty good, simplified look.  Additionally they kept the bot and car mode scales intact.  Gotta see the finished product though, whenever one of these companies decide to finish one....
