    I'm not a fan of this design, but I am curious about what else they have planned

    Seems that Legends are the new MP..

    Please finish prior teased products first: Menasor and Springer specially.

    Thanks :bowdown:

    This has to happen.

    I'm afraid this 100%. I think this is the crappy part of the hobby for me because I see them going into combiner only territory like the Devy/Predaking wars for the the next couple of years and interspersing releases like this in between. Unfortunately for all of the damn 6 Trailbreakers and stuff like this we are going to miss out on figures that would have sold well and could have completed collections. They toyed with Bayverse characters and now this mess that they will all make to shift now away from MP when they could have not screwed around and made the shift in 2020 and gotten a lot done. We might get Sureshot, Crosshairs, Misfire, Triggerhappy, and Slugslinger but I doubt MP goes into completing the full Headmaster, Masterforce, Victory lineup. Imagine if someone did a Violen Jiger with 3 components and full combinable Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Road Fire. Star Convoy, Sky Garry, etc. I have doubts about Omnibots, Top Spin/Twin Twist and so on. If people can get excited over Repugnus you have a captive audience. The industry is talking about new characters later. I like the look of Warden and a couple of other things Fansproject did but personally screw that when you have an almost endless ton of characters you could make that already have an amazing design and known character but are going to become lost to time. I absolutely despised Pretenders and look what we got with Thunderwing and Bludgeon that are amazing. This wonderful hobby has restored my fondest memories but also enabled me to learn so much new about the past that I never dreamed was available.

    1000% this. Please don't go dipping into an entirely other scale/product line before wrapping up the MP Stunticons and hopefully the other Season Two combiners. =\

    Interesting. FF-01, so it's a new series and not the Master Made/Master Mini series. Maybe Keith's dipping his toes in the Legends well?

    I dont like where this is going....We had FTs throwing 500000 renders a day, and now we have XTB throwing 500000 resin prototypes a day...

    Chill out and realease some figures on the backlog first guys.

    It depends. It could be the designers who create the resin prototypes aren't needed for finalizing the figures. If that's the case, they have no reason not to go on to other designs - they're not slowing anything down. And I gotta say this is so much better than the old silhouette reveals that didn't show anything.

    Or do you just mean that you'd rather the figures aren't revealed until they're closed to being released? I can kind of see that - why reveal something if it's going to be years before we actually get it. But at the same time, why not?
