    Transform Element did Black Arachnia and Rattrap with a Scorponok up for preorder.

    Edit: Nevermind, I didn't realize they were Legends scaled.

    After what whole thing? Every MMC release has been a best seller. Even Stellaris with his knees was a good seller.

    Maybe he's mixed up with Maketoys?

    I fully expect it isn't what he meant, but it could be argued the TE beasts are MP scaled based on S3 of BW.

    I only looked at the pics in passing this morning while on my phone, but why are Planet X showing Pluto again? Was it a metallic deco or something?

    Otherwise nothing really taking my interest. I like the idea of PX IDW dinobots but they're so far outside what I'd pay for a figure (upper $100s USD) that I'm not getting them.

    A few of the IDW bots look good though - I like the Drifts and the Samurai Grimlock.

    Correct, a metallic repaint on Pluto.

    Not the most exciting 3P panel. Unless you are really into the IF samurai line.

    Technically we saw these renders last year, a few color/test samples for some recolors and like 2-3 new molds were on display.

    well, i can't say i'm surprised. they already got everyone (who was gonna go in on it anyway) bought into the set so they are just going to take their slow ass time to complete it while claiming a stake a new stake in other areas. That and well, we don't know if they can make a stable combiner yet. their omega supreme looked cool but was a wobbly ass shit show so we know that as of that release they didn't know how to make joints for big heavy figures. then they threw diecast into their limb bots for combiners....uh oh. To be honest if i bought into the FT set of aerialbots or stunticons i'd be pissed off as hell, BUT i'd rather they delay and figure it out than put something as shitty as their omega out.

    that being said ....chromedome and scourge....ummm, i think most people are OK or happy with whats already out. their powerglide seems cooler than DX9's though even if less cute and toony. i don't know if its going to get people to swap out though. i mean look at spindrift 2.0. he is still pretty widely available....people are ok with their spindrift 1.0, xtb one, or toyworld one. i for one never picked up chromedome (and probably won't again), but did pick up scourge and i can't say i'm clamoring for an improved one.

    how come in the last few years 3p companies havent done the big mass reveal of multiple figures? It seems like MMC and PX are barely doing anything anymore.

    They usually reveal a bunch but take forever to actually put them out. Look at Maketoys, who revealed a BUNCH of figures that have never seen the light of day, even well before they went under. It became a running joke for FansToys revealing more than they produce.

    Planet X seems to be intent on only having 1 or 2 projects at a time publicly known. Right now they only have Victory Leo to go with their Star Saber and now Sludge as far as entirely new figures go.

    MMC actually has a fair number of projects they are just older ones they haven't gotten around to releasing yet (I know some have been cancelled, but I'm not entirely certain which one(s)). They do not appear to be interested in continuously building upon that list like Fans Toys and X-Transbots are willing to.

    I love that mold, and as someone who's been on the fence about buying an MP Delta Magnus for a while now, I'd love to see that deco applied to STC, which in my opinion is a far better toy than the MP.

    Found these images when browsing the net, and I'd buy the hell out of it if they produced it, even if (and probably more likely if) they used the STC head.
