    Ok, so... where are the remaining youth and G2 Stunticons in this schedule? I'm finding myself more and more skeptical of this thing.

    Isn't MX-12A Gravestone? Anyway, that list is pure BS. XTB releasing 3 figures in one month (August). I mean is that the month ibot gets some super powers or something?

    I am guessing this year will be mostly Stunticon repaints and remoulds. Dezaras? ROFL. Mysterious combiner? ROFL.

    Or maybe those are dates when the Power Point slides are due?

    I said I wouldn't be purchasing any more XTB figures, but with the absolutely ridiculous and borderline insulting prices people are asking for a used FT Koot, the only real option at this time, I would probably be in for this figure.

    My price for Koot has just gone up to 300 then. Insulting? No. F***** ridiculous? Hell yeah.

    It's never been produced, but there is one more potential Menasor repaint, Masquerade. Encline did a custom set of the FP Stunticon cars based on the relevant Autobots (never did Motormaster that I saw). I've been thinking about getting a custom Masquerade set for a long time, and Gravestone works better than any other Motormaster to be repainted into Optimus colors since the cab is the torso instead of the legs like other Motormasters are. (similar to CW)

    From a business perspective that's a niche of a niche. You don't see many pics of even the toy set in the Stunticons thread so I'd imagine an Autobot repaint would sell even less.

    You are right, which is why I've been exploring the idea of a custom set, I don't expect it to ever happen. The only time I've really let myself believe it was possible was GT J4zz because at that time they had not done non-Combiner (or related) figures. I should have known better, but that is the past so oh well. I even actually bought a Gravestone despite having no intention to buy anymore XTB Stunticons after Crackup for that purpose. Another bonus besides being better suited due to design is that there is no trailer so I can decide later if I want to invest in one or not.

    Uurrghh. That Kup doesn’t look great to me. Hate the metallic paint and proportions seem a bit off. I’ll need to see more pics in better poses and light but so far I’m not impressed. The alt modes nice (except for the random metallic paint choice)
    Not sure why XTB are suddenly slapping metallics on this guy, except it’s what FT have started to do and they’re trying to copy them or something?
    I missed FT Koot and not sure this will be good enough to take his place.
    Liking the quint faces though!!

    That metallic paint looks like sh!t, guess there be a toon colors at some point. Articulation looks to be limited, he looks ready to fall over in the first pic, doesn't look natural at all.

    Yeah it’s definitely different than I was expecting, I’m still taking it in. I hope their Springer knocks it out of the park

    I agree, but I think it’s also a really shitty pose. It’s really worth taking the time to find a descent pose when releasing pics like this.
    I wonder if this will have translucent, or semi-translucent windows, as supposed to being painted body color?

    Hope there’s an alternate face. TFTM Kup does not need a cigar.

    Looking past the terrible posing and what obviously isn't final paint (most likely just shiny paint they quickly used for the prototype to get pics out), Kinda looks better and more visually interesting that FT kup. I'll keep my eye on it.
