First company to make a blue Trailbreaker gets my money!
Right yeah makes sense. I’m not one for demanding things though.
So with Aegis being re-issued in a more toon deco, does that means there's a chance we'll see Paean re-issued? He's the hoist I'm after.
Yup. Already sold my 1st edition in anticipation of it
Quite happy with my nice shiny v1, thanks very much!
Couldn't have said it better myself! Trailbreaker was black, not grey, we knew that because of the toy (and the toon simply couldn't depict pure black in a cel image). Sure, when Takara make an MP they will probably do exactly what X-TB are doing with their redeco, but I still prefer the colours that my beloved G1 toy Trailbreaker had.
So... XTB or MMC for the best MP Trailbreaker?
I went with Badcube for TB and MMC for Hoist, waiting to see what FT does although these XTB repaints are moderately interesting.
i want an mp scorpy to that scale!!!! and fort max !
I will get the FT version... but that maybe sometime in early 2050. So in the meantime...
How's the BadCube version? I have BC Sideswipe and RedAlert. I really like both.
Xtb, so far... but I've had MMCs since it dropped and I still haven't replaced it, so it's definitely good enough.
Badcube was the most posable of the three options but on my copy the paint QC leaves something to be desired.
XTB's was released around the time of their turnaround from being a low-quality trash-tier company to the mostly-upward swing they've been on since. They had unappealing paint tones, particularly Hoist with off-hue orange and green, which the new release should resolve. iirc, there were still some breakage issues, but hopefully on the reissue they'll benefit from the improvements XTB has made over time (though granted there are still some material breakage issues even with recent Stunticon releases, so who knows.)
MMC's were good aside from loose pin joints in the ankles and something was wonky with the chest pegging together on TB, iirc.
Are there any pics of v2?What are the differences?
just look a few pages back
Do you require your figures to have ab crunches?
Not a deal breaker. More in to G1 aesthetic.
Anyone selling their v1? Send me a pm.
Then get XTB V2. It has a better head and faces.
Thanks. I was leaning in this direction.
