To my eyes he looks better than Skids! Wowzer
Just a simple observation. You seem shocked even though we've seen interior pics for months. No need for the snark.
Yes but the gun now needs to be on the back of his properly instead of the side like he's in a perpetual state of holding his blasters in a gangsta pose.
Damn,, X-Transbots seems to be on a roll. I love everything about Herald. I just wish Crosscut had been in the original toyline and animated series, but there's nothing Keith & Co. could do about that...
He meant your memory of the Diaclone/g1 days. In the original, the blue Diaclone figure that became Skids had the hood bulge but the silver one did not. That's because the blue one was the turbo variant of the car and the silver was the non-turbo. Skids is inaccurate for not having it but Crosscut was never meant to have it. It being present in the render was a mistake on xtb's part.
Try not to get so testy about things.
Tbh I thought the accompanying picture would have helped clear things up for him but I think it's clear I've upset him in the past and the angst is still strong. You've put it in a much more pleasant way than I would have
Yes! I just hope XTB can give us a second face in time for Savant/Skids....
Okay--THIS is the one I want. I always liked the E-Hobby Crosscut release when he came out. And since I really hate Skids' face on this mold, Crosscut becomes the perfect choice.
It's precisely why I felt they could have made the silver one be the turbo instead. but it's fine. would be neato if they included a second hood so we had some options. and yeah the black plastic gun barels turn me off a little. Does X-Trans not chrome their stuff anymore?
(also thanks for being civil. Helps wonders)
Always loved the e-Hobby deco more than Skids himself.
Crosscut looks a lil like an Alternators Star Saber to me, even though the inspiration really works in reverse, with the old Diaclone Honda City R and their facemasks influencing Star Saber, instead... perhaps.
So, I’ve got my eye on this guy unless he winds up being 25% or even more expensive than Skids.
Hm, I wish they'd given Skids weapons the silver treatment, but I'm not picking this up for that minor detail.
I do like my Skids (Savant) though, so I hope XTB make some more money from the design, they deserve it.
Any links for this up on Taobao yet ?
Up on BBTS..
Master X MX-XVII(h) Herald
So is the name Heral or Herald (as BBTS shows)? If it is truly Herald we'll need @Cheem The Rup/mods to correct the name in this thread's title.
Ha, totally. Maybe that's why I like him so much. Skids is kind of boring to me but I like this one. The silver deco and the Star Saberish head...yummy.
perfect match with Skids, neither has a mouth
I know only that the producer on weibo wrote Heral, not Herald, so I brought it back the exact name here: anyway I can't edit the title, we have to ask the favor to @Black Convoy or other mods
You got your "D"!
Thanks as always bud
I'll be getting this guy, along with the Taiho police Deco.
