    ^^ Oh. That's looks very cool indeed. I got really excited for a second because I thought the wolves combined into the platoon. I'm definitely in for at least Frost Light to go on my shelf of cool unaffiliated one-off transforming bots. Thanks for sharing!

    So, on the one hand (good news?), Archecore says the first 5 figures are available for pre-order:

    【ARC-01 ØRN LODBROK】
    Release date: Aug, 2021
    3,250yen (Including tax)
    https://en.archecore-world.com/arc01

    【ARC-02 FROST LIGHT】
    Release date: Oct, 2021
    13,900yen (Including tax)
    https://en.archecore-world.com/arc02

    【ARC-03 VANGUARD】
    Release date: Oct, 2021
    1,980yen (Including tax)
    https://en.archecore-world.com/arc03

    【ARC-04 CENTER-RAIDER】
    Release date: Oct, 2021
    1,980yen (Including tax)
    https://en.archecore-world.com/arc04

    【ARC-05 SUPPRESSOR】
    Release date: Oct, 2021
    1,980yen (Including tax)
    https://en.archecore-world.com/arc05

    OTOH (bad news?) is that I haven't found an online retailer Stateside (or even HLJ and Ami Ami) that has them yet, and Archecore hasn't provided a list of retailers. Hopefully they'll show up soon.

    Separately, since I'm only really interested in Frost Light as a transforming toy, I think I want to see more anyway before buying. Seems to me that the whole gray section (sleeper cabin?) behind the cabin doesn't end up anywhere in robot mode.

    ETA. Maybe that section plays a role in the FA Berserker combiner? I'd like to see that as well.

    I ordered mine from taobao, they have discount for large order. IIRC toys alliance is China based toys company.

    The colors reminds me of Gurren Lagann which is a good thing for me, i love that anime. Excited to see the other figures that it combines with, almost doubling in size from 23 cm to 40 cm. That combined mode is gonna be

    Yeah, I'd thought Toys Alliance was based in China, but the Archecore marketing is in Japanese and priced in yen, so I wasn't sure.

    These look freaking cool.

    kinda hard to take a risk on a 140 dollar item at this point, though I just might. Especially once they show the full combined mode.

    Definitely getting a 40k mixed with Anime vibe. In a way the individual troops make me think what the 'Great Crusade' was originally like before they started doing the WH30K material. A bit more sci-fi. I wonder how close they will skew towards a 40k look, like will there be Dreadnoughts. Motorcycle mounts also seem like a very obvious thing to do.

    Space Wolves meets Road Warrior.
    I can dig it.
    Pre-ordered the rig and the Commander. I rarely get stuff outside of Transformers, Diaclone Reboot and McFarlane, but these look cool enough to give them a chance.
    Also, the prices aren't stupid-silly.

    TA does a lot of variants in their Acid Rain line so I think I’m going to hold off on Frost Light and see if it comes out in other colors that appeal to me more than the black and red. Hard to resist preordering though, it looks like an absolutely killer figure.

    You ever see something and feel like it was designed specifically with your taste in mind? This is that for me. It's just so...metal! Preordered the whole line.

    I was going to get them all, but may hold off until we see what else is in the pipeline.

    I wonder if there will be enemy troops.

    Toys Alliance showed a whole lot of printed protos off last fall at a show in China. There are photos and videos on FB (links and photos in first post of this thread):
