    That looks very nice. The altmode is way better than Freedom Leader. I'm not gonna cancel my PO for this yet since I want to see more of Toylab's attempt.

    The problem here is that Toyworld only shows two test samples... One bot and one truck. They are always the same test samples; no video of transformation, no video of articulation test, no pictures of the artbox, no video to check issues, quality, size, paint, etc... no final product pictures in hand... Also there's not a clear date of release... The price is not friendly and there too many Primes on the battle.

    As I said in other thread, I'm almost at one step to cancel my ToyWorld order (full balance paid). I don't like companies that they don't show updates of their expensive products, and for a 3rd party is not trusty.

    I'm starting to think that TW Prime has transformation problems that they don't want to show yet, and maybe they are working on re-design some parts. Don't know!.

    My thoughts really. They better show the transformation sequence for both Freedom Leader and Knight Orion soon or I may get the idea that they're not very fond of it :p

    Given that getting accuracy for both modes without the ability of movie magic transformation, it's a task to engineer the toy. I do agree that they should show the transformation but I think we'll only see that when and if reviewers get their copies.

    I wonder what is holding them back for showing the transformation.

    It's all clear to me now.
    1. The 279 bucks version will contain a robot and a truck. No the bot does not transform.
    2. The 179 bucks version will only contain the robot. No transformation

    Any questions?

    Finally I cancelled the TW Deluxe. I'm gonna keep and eye on the other brands. I wish cheaper prices and shinny accurate trucks with decent bot modes.

    Still keeping my preorder for TW's. They have established themselves as a company that makes quality figures while that new prime.... who knows, its a new company. Might be too expensive for what you get, might be a qc nightmare like other companies new to the game. Unless its under $100, I don't think i'll switch out from TW.

    I'm thinking the same. Have the normal version fully paid with Baba but the lack of any video transformation or at least photos of it is getting fishy. Even the Bombusbee people threw their hinge clusterfuck Mixmaster at people that knew shit about how to transform it. That is confidence in their product.

    The wow factor TW had with their premium paint job thing is loosing steam now that more 3P are doing it. It's becoming standard for movie stuff.

    If other companies turn out much better, nothing stops me from selling TW and getting another Prime ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but that TC or TL Prime may take years to be released and in the meantime we can get half dozen of new Primes announced. So remember not to lose your head :D

    Those are deluxe TF. Plus they didn't have six other companies doing those two characters too.
