    Rumor from baidu:
    there is a retailer opened preorder for S-05 Hun-Grrr, bot mode height is 25cm, the estimated released date is June 2024.
    Since there is no pic, this might be fake, but I saw some baidu user discussing it so I think I should post it here.

    And 25cm? that's a big Hun-grr... 2 inches taller than TFC Iron Shell? (EDIT: thought I saw s/w that Iron Shell was 20cm tall in bot mode... I haven't actually measured)

    Also, if this turns out to be the real deal (not saying it is...), then everyone's welcome, because I JUST received a second Iron Shell (awesome board member @Motor_Master thanks again!) so that my Satan limbs had someone to unite them.

    I've been exploring the option of using 3rd for my monster bot combiners and would greatly welcome this. Plus it would be cool to see them do more combiners.

    Imma make this joke as many times as I see fit:
    Rando: "It's gonna be 2025 before we get the HasLab boxset in-hand? That's SO long!"
    Me: "Eh, have you seen TFC's Satan? No, you haven't... no one has. My point is I can certainly wait less than two years for Omega Prime because I've already got bluebolts."

    It is promising as Taobao's reputable sellers (not one but many) are putting up preorder for him too. Eventually this may still mean nothing but at least there is hope.

    I don't think I will replace my UT one with this as they are supposed to be similar in size just like TFC poseidon, right?

    I’m not in on this set, but if it DOES get finished I may reconsider. I hope that if hungurr does come out he’s good!

    Ooooohh yes, nicely timed (for me :D ) release window if it pans out, too.

    The height isn't too zany either, I didn't take Ironshell off the shelf to measure, but eyeballing it 25cm is about equal to the top of the cannons on his back.
    It might only mean he's just a very tall lad, but it might mean the new design has some really gnarly monster kibble, which I would be 120% behind. Long articulated dragon tails wrapped around the shoulders, like on their Tentakill? That would rock.

    Even if the rumor is true, they’ve killed any momentum and goodwill they had by the lengthy delay. It's still a niche team for some of us collectors to begin with.

    Edited 3/7: I was half awake when I typed this last night and autocorrect got me on the second sentence.

    I have the other four members of the set, but I stand by what I said. They're going to have to instill some goodwill going forward. Good communication and development pictures to let us all know that its real and not a pipe dream.

    that sounds nice and principled but if they ever do release it and the reviews are decent, not only will everyone who has the other four still buy it but also all the others who prematurely sold their other four will be paying the tax to get them back

    My limb-bots still sit on a shelf above my desk, currently posed doing a cheerleader routine spelling out B A D D because I thought it was funny. If this is true, I'll be right there for it.

    I'm really debating if I should try and track down the other members now. I don't want to buy them and this turns put to be fake, but I also don't want to risk this being real and all then have the other limbs hard to find or extremely expensive.

    Nope because I'm still gonna sell mine. Not wasting money on hungrrr. Tfc had me as a customer they gave me the middle finger so I said I'll take my money elsewhere. Any updates would have kept me interested.
