    Yeah I dunno, the boxiness seems more disjointed to me. Sometimes what works in 2D doesn't work in 3D.

    If this is priced higher than the last bot, I am probably gonna switch to DX9.

    As I said over in MMC Azalea's thread, heckuva haul today! Both are excellent. Flipout has a fun transformation and looks great! Feels good in hand, too. I'm sold on these guys now, and will order his brother on payday! Rock on! :rock

    Exactly. I always loved the fact that they were boxy. In the cartoon, Megatron literally cut up some cars, and didn’t care how they looked, as long as they ruled the road.

    Anyone know when the third toy is due? Or what it's called or who it is?
    I have no idea, but bought the first two and don't know enough to find any info on the next one.

    I almost regret going in on these guys, the last two were so great but now I'm jonesin' hard for the next one.

    This was going to be my first combiner set actually, although I caved a few days ago and got the Jinbao KO of Gravity Builder so that'll be the first set I actually complete.

    I think the Transformission set was a lot less boxy in robot mode, I reckon that's your best bet if you don't like the old box boys. Any G1 aesthetic for the Stunticons is going to be super boxy IMO.

    The Transformission set looks really sweet too, honestly if I had infinite space and money...

    I just pre-ordered the G2 Wildrider from bababobo00712. He’s the cheapest, at under $65 shipped. All of the retailers have him at $80 before shipping, so that’s $20-$30 cheaper, and I’m afraid his price is going to go up the closer we get to release.

    To be fair here, it doesnt have to do with so much the cartoon but the fact that these characters in every G1 itteration were cars with limbs so...

    We've been talking about it for weeks in this very thread, even just a page or two back...

    It's Deadend next. Due after Chinese New Year, should be basically any time. Called Deathwish.

    And, incidentally, up for pre-order on ShowZ now. Listed for May.

    Fair comment.

    But soapbox racers in toon or slavish old school toy style is what X-Transbots do.
    Plenty of other options and styles around.
    The retro-style is what I love about the XTB toys.
    Their 'Skids' is gorgeous.

    Yeah I don't follow this thread and not about to read 300 pages of text man!
    Just thought I would ask as I have heard nothing in months and no listing yet on my online shop of choice.
    Thank you.

    I did the same yesterday to use up some ebay bucks I had. The TF Express perorder site also has them around this price.

    I don’t know what it is about the day glow Miami Vice colors but this combiner wasnt even on my radar until the G2 repaints. Now I’m all in.

    I hope they G2 Motormaster too and not just do the limbs and call it a day.

    Sadly that ETA could be correct. G2 Flipout will be after CNY, so probably March, and the releases seem to run a couple months apart, so May for Deathwish then. Unfortunately this means it's possible we'll be waiting until September to get the fourth one, with G2 Deathwish taking the slot in July. Then, unless they break the pattern, G2 Dragstrip in November and no Motormaster until 2020 which is nuts so hopefully they double up a run or two this year or engage another facility so we can complete the team much sooner.

    So I have no problem with G2 versions for those who want them. They're ugly but if that's your thing then whatever. But if the main figures are getting delayed because of the G2s, that's bullshit. Just bring em on already. When did XTB get so freakin' slow?

    There's no "if" about it. It's happened twice so far and is one reason why we didn't get Flipout in the Fall or Deathwish before CNY. It's a pattern.

    Well whatever then. They're probably gonna overcharge for motormaster anyway. Maybe zeta will announce their Stunticons while we wait for the next figure from XTB.
