Same here, replacement is solid af.
second release defo more solid .... but my box stank like poo and still does! opened it to pack mine away last month and got hit with it again , like it had been sprayed with fart spray
What are the odds we get this guy before summer? (Say, July or so)
I’m guessing November with maybe a reveal in the summer, hoping I’m wrong and it’s release earlier that prototype looked so good
I hope this doesn't suck, but at the same price as the Sovereign reissue, I'm considering just getting that. Mediocre cannon mode but at least the robot is good. Still hoping someone else takes a stab at it though.
I don't buy this as an excuse whatsoever. People keep acting like Keith funded Locke replacements out of pocket, because he was doing the right thing.
Except there's no way that happened.
If the story about the factory is true, Keith would have just made the factory refund him for producing trash, then used that money to do a second run.
In other words, XTB never took a loss on Locke, because they would have got that money reimbursed for the first batch.
If he took a loss or not is irrelevant imho. Why would it matter?
It is clear they acted quickly and tried to solve the issue.
Is English your second language because English comprehension must be a short coming of how you learned when you mistake a factual statement for a statement of excuse.
the irony of this sentence making no fucking sense is very funny
From the ShowZ thread when asked about Abbadon:
Thanks for the heads up. I'm waiting to see how this turns out before pulling the trigger on movie sovereign.
There is simply no way in hell that date is real.
This is a brand new figure...
Yup deleting it and reposing in the correct one.
I shot XTB a message on FB earlier today asking for confirmation about this new release date. Awaiting their reply…
Have they even shown a non 3D printed or painted proto? The below version looks hand painted, I can’t quite tell if it’s 3D printed but I suspect so from the paint. March would seem pretty quick to hit all those steps, and impossible for xtb. Seriously, this is abaddon we’re talking about… I know Millennials younger than him.
edit- on a deeper look, appears to be a resin copy, most of the pieces appear to have been whitish before, you can see in some of the crevices and pieces which don’t show…
It does seem too soon for Abaddon, but XTB hasn't done anything since delivering Commander Stack back at the beginning of December and then running off the Diaclone colors for Hoist/Trailbreaker before CNY. They should be working on something in February to deliver to retailers in March. Abaddon and James/Bond/Punch/Counterpunch seemed to be furthest along. Maybe Onion/Orion Pax as well as they had a mock-up of him last November at the same show. They also showed off their Scrapper and Long Haul protos, but I didn't think their Scrapper was due until Q3 2023.
Edit: Origo, that's his name. Latin for "origin".
Don't forget they released the two Prosecutors too
Im pretty sure at some point last year XTB said to expect around 4th Q 2023. I personally wouldnt expect it any sooner given we havent seen a non printed hard copy. From painted production sample to retailer can be around 6 months. When we see that, we will have a better idea of when to expect it
