    I just hope the excessive delays aren't related to the base mode design. I'd be shocked if more than about 2% of buyers will use that mode more than once. I personally won't even bother to transform it to base mode. It's a trailer or it's the exoskeleton of Menasor. If they had those nailed say 6 months ago I'll be pretty pissed, especially if whatever is being done with the base mode hampers the combiner stability in any way. I mean, I'd be pissed if base mode hampers the combined mode full stop, but particularly if I've waited 6 extra months to find out!

    One thing I don't get. Like l literally cannot understand... if the trailer was going to be photographed then it's finished, right? Designed, tested, ready to go be made. Otherwise why photograph it? So surely we should be in a position to know the planned release date and price, irrespective of the pictures being good or terrible and needing retaking? I don't get why we are all Jon Snow about it o_O

    ibot probably ran out of toilet paper so he instead had to use the only existing design for the trailer to wipe his bottom.

    Poor 598 probably had to redesign the whole thing from scratch again.

    To me, the real bummer would be finding out that they used some of that shitty, awful gummy plastic they keep using in nearly every release (Overheat and Savant's shoulders, Flipout and Gravestone's waist, etc.).

    I can't stand the feel/quality of their plastic, which is why I sold all of these guys the first time around (only to get a great deal and buy the whole toon set again).

    Yeah, I have absolutely zero interest in the base mode. I usually transform every toy I get to each mode at least once when I first get it - I even put Earthrise Skylynx into his stupid base mode for about five seconds before transforming him back - but I'm not going to do it even once with this thing. Out of spite if no other reason.

    Just freaking rip the bandaid off and tell us the price so we can get through our stages of grief already!

    Which is funny cuz I don't care about the guns. I'll have to see when they come out (or at least when they show final product shots) but maybe we can come to an arrangement.

    It is their first combiner, right? Doesn't surprise me if they are slow just because it is new territory and they might be learning things gradually. Waiting is always annoying but I rather the trailer be robust and as high quality as possible as it needs to not fall apart in a month or 2 from release and after some combining and separating.
    It might also be essentially ready for photos but certain pegs, joints, etc. aren't holding up, and so unless all that is sorted, it can't release.
    :2c:

    I don't disagree, but let's look at when the Stunticons came out (very rough, I'm just going by when video reviews of them hit YouTube, because this seems like the easiest way):
    Crackup - June 2018
    Flipout - November 2018
    Overheat - June 2019
    Deathwish - June 2019
    Gravestone - January 2020

    They've been at this for 2 years. How much time do they need?

    I dunno. I keep sacrificing to the demon goddess Nubala Mah-dingydong to speed things up, what else can I do?

    I think they may have revealed it at the 2016 TFCon Chicago. Might have been 2017

    Who wants to bet they eventually give their Menasor the MP upsize treatment like they did with their Optimus and they still get the whole thing out before XTB finishes? :p
