    ehh my problem was more (aside from Newage) too many new renders of far off things and not enough updates on things that have been in the works for a while

    I agree, the Force was weak with that one.

    This is true, but I'm not complaining I guess. Just picked up Cupola for cheap, and FT version probably won't be out for another couple of years. Their Powerglide may be the first figure of theirs that I won't be getting.

    2018's calling, they want their expectations back.
    It's been weak for a couple years now. :)

    Their powerglide looks waaaay too skinny in plane mode. No way it's an improvement over DX9's. I'm honestly surprised they're even trying it. DX9's is perfect. It's the height of arrogance. I'll get the Scourge for sure, but that's the only one I'm positive on. Not sure I see the need to spend a bunch on slight, if any, improvements on Chromedome and Outback.

    That's a very harsh take. DX9's is good but not perfect. It's also long out of print and there are KOs. FT has stated years ago they plan to do all the G1 figures. They are only now, years after DX9, revealing theirs. None of that evidences arrogance.

    I'm glad I kept my expectations low. We mostly got renders and barely any prototypes.

    Yep. I am good with my DX9 Powerglide as well. I'll probably get Outback, but I am skipping Chromedome.

    Got a release date for Energon Prime.
    Got a Tidal Wave.
    And IDW Sludge.
    Today's reveals for me were so good.

    Oh and Overload was there to.

    If they follow through on their plan that's great, but A) I can think of a bunch of G1's that could use upgrades before Powerglide and B) many have no real representation at all and all these four already did.

    I'm glad with whatever gets released. Nice to see FT make the Headmasters. Outback nice as well. Scourge's alt-mode looks good. Other companies had nice stuff as well. Win-win for all of us I say. Better than nothing and who knows what people will be interested in after a while.

    Definitely disappointed by no combiner updates from FT, but not surprised at all.

    I'm disappointed (not surprised) Planet X didn't show anything for the WFC/FOC line.

    I don't care for FT Powerglide's feet, but I'm really curious to see how that bot gets into that skinny jet mode. I wonder if the pics are deceptive without anything next to it to compare.

    I do really appreciate how little FT Outback appears to have in common with their Brawn in bot mode while having so much in common in alt mode.

    It is good to see FT finally move on Scourge, their oldest silhouette tease that has had nothing yet.

    I would have preferred Jetfire over Overload from FH, but the fact they have both Overload and Tidalwave means the odds of them skipping Jetfire are rather low at this point.

    I'm strongly inclined to get the NewAge Cyclonus. Generally I'm a Magic Square guy, but NA Cyclonus does actually look good (I can't say that about too many of their figures), plus MS' version is one of their early designs that needed redoing anyway.

    I've been thinking about picking up Cupola for the first time recently (since FT Cerebros was put up for pre-order). Sure FT's is a ways out, but first impression is that it fixes the issues that had me not bothering with Cupola all these years.

    As much as I love FT figures "the height of arrogance" describes them very well in general, not just in a specific scenario. That said I agree with Edgecrusher I don't feel this is an example of their arrogance.

    If we are going from the cartoon there are very few characters with no representation at all outside of combiners (FT is apparently currently struggling on theirs so it makes sense to not advance yet) and city bots. I guess you might be speaking about Headmasters/Rebirth but the market there is smaller so it makes sense to not commit too heavily there all at once. I'm fairly certain you don't mean outside of G1 here, but just in case, that isn't FT's field so I wouldn't even bring them up in expectations from FT.

    Well.

    That was piss poor. I think we're witnessing the slow demise of the 3p scene, compared to a few years back when this place was buzzing after a TFCon panel. Besides Chromedome, which I won't pay FT's asking price for, there's not one thing there that has me excited.

    Sadly, I totally agree. I just don’t think anything shown is so much better than what I already have that I feel I need to replace. I’m glad I have most of what I want as the releases have diminished and the prices skyrocketed.

    well thats was shit eh no bloody ft combiner shizzle ! not sure about scourge i have always been really happy with xtbs so need to see better pictures , chromedome yeah i'm down for that the ko maketoys can go into alt mode and paves the way for more ft headmasters and target masters , powerglide is no better than dx9's which i'm happy with so easy pass but that outback is awesome looking and have been waiting for ft to reveal it after getting brawn

    nothing really new from any other company that i would be interested in , already all in on the mmc protectobots apart from that hotspot which i will be getting xtb or the eventual ft hotspot for robot mode
