    Hoping they’ll scale well with CW devastator and POTP predaking.

    hhhhmmmmmm looks like it might be a custom, or a third party. The arms seem to not actually transform into bots but rather just trains (if even that), and those hands look really similar to a zeta combiner....

    No interest in mp scale.

    Or it's the next Titan class figure after Scorponok. 2021 maybe?

    Definitely not TT.
    This guy looks decidedly non-transformable.

    The Ehobby fiction feels like what most of us did as kids. Take a bunch of random toys and craft a story around them. The difference is that the Ehobby stuff has fantastic artwork and a coherent plot.

    The right (our left) leg doesn't have a flap sticking up at the ankle like zeta's, so that's a nope. (also too thick for TW's)

    Im not doubting that they use trains in Japan because it makes sense. But somehow I just cant see them doing this.... Hub-City-Railroader-sets-trains-up-in-front-of-young-convention-attendee.-.jpg
    Especially with the lack of space in living quarters that everyone says in the norm over there.

    Maybe a mock-up similar to that early predaking that was floating about?

    Edit: on second thought kinda dubious on this, no ankle guns

    Real talk, I wouldnt consider puzzlers to be a "segment" of the Transformers fanbase. It would be more realistic to call them transformers fans who happen to like puzzles. And if you could transform ROTF Mixmaster in 5 minutes, you deserve a job with Hasbro doing something. That damn thing takes me 30 mins. With most figures, I watch a youtube review and let those guys do all the hard work. Let them take one for the team and damage their toy trying to figure it out for the sake of satisfaction. I just like to display them as robots and occasionally transform them to know that modern engineering can pull it off in the first place.

    There's zero chance that some random person has the full TT prototype just chilling in their house. It's either 3p or a custom.

    Great, let me know when they’re hiring. And...proof? You don’t like it, therefore nobody else does either, and if they say they do they must be lying? And since when does a complex design mean comprehensive instructions don’t accompany it? I follow the directions once for every figure I buy to ensure I don’t miss any steps or break anything, and then I’ve got it down. Maybe not everybody does the same thing, but nobody certainly has to sit down and try to figure a transformation out because there’s no better alternative. You’re making a lot of assumptions and stating a lot of personal opinions that can’t be universally blanketed on the rest of us without proof to back it up.
