    @ibot, you hearing this? Can you confirm if this is actually happening? The 1 in 20 silver thing, I mean.

    Agreed. This makes no sense. Not sure why they can't do a v2 in off white and a v2 in silver and let each customer decide which they want. Look how many repaints/retools each XTB Stunticon is getting so I'm not sure why they can't do it here and let the customers decide. If my only option is to play the XTB lotto then I'll just wait for FT Outrider.

    I would guess the silver accessories would be in addition to the regular accessories. A bonus not a replacement.

    If I end up with the silver ones I'll most likely be looking to trade for the white ones.

    The silver parts on v1 are connected with screws so v2 should be the same way with white parts so they should be swappable.

    its Hard to say which I’d even prefer without seeing the silver. If it’s a dull grey I’d probably be into that but real shiny not so much. I have it preordered so I guess I’ll find out.

    My first 2 third party preorders to go out are Jabber and this, They should just just show us black and white renders and surprise us completely on release

    only a few days till this releases I guess ...apparently??

    I'd say it's too soon for this to be released over the TF Con weekend but crazier things have happened!

    Looks like a prototype of the toon Hoist in TCP's display here at TFCon?

    I smell ebay markup prices coming for the "ultra-rare, hard to find" silver weapon version...

    Price?

    And the fact that his right knee doesn't peg in:

    [​IMG]

    He's got his strengths, and I really love MMC, but this figure is a miss for me. Regret not going with XTB.

    EDIT: this means that I may be in the market for a original version of this guy when v2 comes out, so if somebody will be switching for a reasonable price, pm me after v2 arrives ;)
