She's my WW Arcee, niceeeeeee right? lol (said without being said).
It depends on whether Xtransbots makes the jump from "supplementing Takara" to "doing their own thing", like Fanstoys has. The fact that Locke comes with an accessory for MP-28 implies that they are still in a "supplement Takara" mindset and thus don't have a Hot Rod currently in development.
I just hope x-tb get the colors right.
And also hope they paint their figures instead of colored plastic.
At this point I think they should, for a lot of people Takara isn't the go to place it used to be
Locke must be releasing imminently because Fanstoys just announced a super quickfire reissue of Koot for July
I'm honestly torn on getting "the accursed one" as a one-off/double up to go with my definitive MP Arcee, said definitive being either Takara's or MMC's, depending on the latter's QC on release. I'm loving Takara's more anime-like styling more than Azalea's (the OX version being my personal choice) more cartoon-like styling, though "the accursed one" is UBER anime, and arguably too much for me, ironically, as an anime fan myself, haha.
I personally am liking what we've seen so far. The metallic finish on him is looking REALLY solid, definitely more of a looker and a wallet saver than FT's Kup, haha. If they gave him some more extra faces, that's basically all they need for me to instantly pre-order.
How many copies of Locke are you getting?
TT's Arcee just looks, funny enough, like a knockoff design. Lol The one who's name we shall not speak, adds more variety to what I have. I purchased Red Bull (beast sideswipe) when I have zero inclination towards beast type TF, but his robot mode looked great. He'll never see bull mode ever again. I'm a fan obari masami and if you've seen the character designs for his anime, She who shall not be spoken of, fits in quite nicely.
Azalea is my deadly little miho. She's my official. I can get behind a figure if it has the "spirit" of the character even if design wise it veers off being completely accurate.
Probably just one. Can't get as much profit as you can for fanstoys
Oh indeed I have, my friend. Haha. Obari is a MONSTER.
Would love to see an Obari-style Gunbuster sooner or later, the Super Robot Chogokin one I kinda see inklings of Obari from, but not enough.
Very interesting take on MP Arcee, totally understand the need for variety. While I of course do love me some anime figures (hell, I got Gutto Kuru Medaka, that's probably the closest I can manage so far to.. ahem... "the accursed one"), at the same time, I gotta keep everything in-line in terms of a definitive figure for the shelves. Of course I wanna branch out once I get a definitive version of a certain character, but priorities, essentially.
And while I again, totally get the need and want for variety, "the accursed one" is just a bit too far left of center for something to be my only choice. Though I am definitely into the other line "you know who" is making, that shit i'd buy in an instant, ha.
TLDR: I'd love to pick up "The Accursed One", but simply due to priorities, she's gotta take a back seat for now.
Red Bull also looks undeniably INCREDIBLE, though i'm personally waiting out for an MP Sideswipe 2.0, I kinda called Starscream 3.0, so I wanna see if I end up going on a roll, haha. So far, he's my most wanted MP that hasn't been announced yet. Our favorite Seeker took the title before him, of course.
Here's to hoping Takara gets better with QC, their MP designs are arguably my absolute favorites, as they mesh between the original cartoon styles, while giving them, from how I see it, a bit of an anime flair on some.
I have standards.
Seriously though, I don't collect doubles for say, alt-modes. I see collecting doubles as personally, a way to discourage playing with these things. I pay for these figures to both display them and take them off their shelves and have fun with them, haha. Not only would doubles take up more space, which at this point, I am beginning to severely lack, it again, would just devalue the play aspect for them, personally.
I'm buying 2 of ft figures nowadays.
Weird that i have 3 roadkings.
No Springer? C'mon!!!
That box art just had to remind me about his neutered hands.
Could these be the Sweeps boxes? Makes sense as there are 3 and the boxes are slightly different
The barcode is actually the same
It's the sweeps boxes, someone on the quintison thread noticed the barcodes are identical.
Can't wait for Locke to be $150.
It's still coming.
