    these look good, but really big. I think I will be passing, they most likely will want 500 + plus for this guy

    Robo babes my man, robo babes. Haha.

    But you know what I'm gettin' at. The tapered chin, big bambi eyes and the delicate neck on FP colossus are all more feminine design cues. I think in anime the aesthetic leans many times toward the androgynous hero and so you find male designs that have the same feminine cues.

    That, versus a strong square jaw, smaller eyes and thick neck. Which is much more identifiable in terms of iconic "brute" or tough guy aesthetic. (ala Bruce Timm)

    Does anyone have any solid proof of the fact that this is even going to be released? Or are we all just speculating based on Peaugh's photo? If this has already been asked please forgive me. This thread has been moving to fast for the working man

    I wish they would just give us some more sexy late night material pictures! Some poses so we can get an idea of the poseability for instance! =D

    In regards to above post, they said you can start to preorder in Nov with more updates in mid October.

    Yes, the pics were first posted on Warbotrons twitter (new account), then sent to Peaugh through twitter immediately after that. Then the posts in the first post are from those pics. I follow that much. But im saying other then those original pics and the original post by Warbotron on their twitter feed, has anyone heard anything from them directly about these being released and when. If its November then great, im all for it. Just wondering where the info came from and if the source is someone that is solid. I mean nobody has even heard of these guys/girls before. The question is valid, and its just that.... A question. No ill intent behind it. Just digging for more information is all.

    I see that they have only posted once here on the forums, and only that first day on twitter. And in all of that i dont see any release information

    November is the start of the pre-orders and was posted on their facebook page. As far as we know, that's when they would do the pre-order for the first figure. Some folks were hoping/wishing that it's for the whole set...


    August 15th from their FB page:
    Hope that helps. :thumbs2:

    WB-01 is one of (many) combiner(s) from (the) Warbotron team (of designers)? Otherwise why call the thread WB-01 Unofficial Bruticus if it's just for one of the members when all of them are unveiled at the same time?

    Thats exactly how i read it as well. Looks like if its a new scale then all the others, i suppose its time to jump onboard the Warbotron train and start from scratch. Id actually love a new devastator in this style and scale. Hopefully for all our sakes its not TFC
