Insane when you put it like that. I'm used to the old school show a render and wait two years approach or in the case of berserk a decade it will end up.
Then this is for you, not me of inferior taste.
Headsculpt nailed as well. But as others have mentioned, those thighs a bit skinny. But I'm nitpicking, thing looks beautiful
Ditto. This approach is much better IMO! It's like when DS Seekers and DS Blaster were revealed - they were only a few months away from release.
The more I look at it the more I like it.
Prize? Date? Size? - $180? Q1 2023? FT Thomas?
Oh nice an mp blitzwing, I was holding out for beserk but if this thing is decent I might just go with this
ShowZ says late January 2023, but no total price yet.
[Pre-Order] Star Toy ST-01 Blitzwing
DS' stuff released a few months after being announced so my guess is Q1 or Q2 2023.
PO available on ShowZ. Estimated Releasing date : Late January.
Thanks. I am in.
Late Jan is way too optimistic. Chinese New Year basically kills the 2nd half of Jan and into Feb.
Given this is only a grey prototype, 2 weeks before Christmas, I can’t see this being in anyone’s hands in January.
looks very promising. Will wait for it to go half the price as they seem to go....For weird reasons given they are so good
Yeah, I knew about the russian situation with their military Industry, but I am not too sure how licensing works there... But I own an official licenced CAIC Z-10 from TFC / JiYi.
JiYi also has plans to make more licenced military vehicles from China.
I don't know if the model kits companies require a licence from the military Industry to manufacture and use the names of their products, but it seems like it.

Well, interesting and even more interesting if this announcement starts actual Blitzwing wars. I'm not 100% sold on this figure yet, but I'll be following the progress of this figure. Basically, I'm on the Fanstoys side when it comes to Blitzwing, but still considering all options. I think this figure will do more justice after we get the first actual color test version of this.
A couple of things that caught my eye the most:
Green circles: Slightly annoying parts.
Red circles: Missing from the figure.
Oh by the way, this figure even gets close to the same pose as seen in the animation.
Although I wouldn't praise that pose too much as a big achievement.
Anyway, this is a good looking figure already at this point.
i just read this isnt actually black mamba and might be a designer who started his own thing? Anyone got any leads on that?
I don’t love doing Starscream’s transformation but that’s an impressive resume nonetheless and this is looking promising based on both the photos and the track history.
Keep in mind Feb 2023 is my prediction for earliest. There's still time to manufacture, assemble, and package the darn thing. I don't know how long that usually takes.
This looks great! If it's true this is from the TE/DS designer under his own new name, I'm totally in.
Now, if they can just do a simplified, shrunk-down-to-6.5" version to rival the ugly Leader-class version, I'd be ecstatic!
I mean, the biggest unknowns will be things like materials quality and transformation, and really, those are often risks with XTB/KFC too, lol. DX9's was probably the best Blitzwing at close to MP scale so far. So it's not a huge gamble. Price is $170 on US retailer sites like Chosen Prime. Not too bad. Bet FT's ends up way more than that. Maybe this will cause FT to light a fire under their Berserk. Even better.
