    All four of these guys are litteraly speaking 4 cars with limbs In almost every itteration.Even the Autobot carbots are visually more distinct in their robot mode. There is only so much you can do before they start looking 'way too gonne'. I dont see how they lack in the dynamic pose department and I still dont know, how we can declare a winner from a render...Personally its something I would never do again after the Azaela debacle I went through....So anyway, just my 2cents, whatever works for you man :)

    I'd be careful with such apriori statements. Two days ago a lot of people who have voiced their belief that XTB won the Stunticon competition now claim that they're out, and saying they'll sell the ones they already got. Don't get me wrong, I think they look great, and FT nails the looks like almost no one else. But the have had some issues (please, name a company that didn't), to the point that I see why some people are kinda turning sour on them. It could be that these issues are because they started to neglect other products, because they're giving their all to the combiners. But it may turn out that some issues will appear (like die cast - people are complaining about the die cast in XTBs MM, but weight is actually one of the selling points for FT - I doubt it that their Menasor will weigh less than 5kg). Sometimes its better to wait and see :) 
    I'm in XTB mostly because the price point, and even if their MM will have a higher price, I think it'll still be cheaper than FTs.

    Word. He does specify that they’re killing it with looks, I feel that just an odd judgement. Cause like you’re saying it’s win before it exists. Weird, but opinions are yours and I don’t give a shit if I hate or like them.

    I am not on the FT hate wagon, i love their bots but i am not going to declare victorie over renders that is just stupid, you say that they killed it with their combiners so far, what combinersdo you mean, they have not released on single bot so far. I hope they are going to be great bots

    FT are killing it with combiners? Like ol' leany pants McTerminus, he's technically a combiner I guess and......I'm struggling for the rest. Give me a clue to the combiner I'm missing that they've killed it with. I guess if their renders can stand upright then killing it is accurate?

    I really dig their toy version of Menasor and will more than likely bite just for that but come on guys, let's drop the hyperbolic BS.

    Edit - as to Motormaster, have none of you learned to wait to see final shots. It's like there's a contingent of ppl that just can't hold themselves and piss their pants with excitement the second XTB show an unflattering shot and thus declare it's game over. It's all shit. Fanstoys, with their super solid last year of releases, are gonna show the light. It's clearly a photo shoot to highlight articulation and not much else.

    Patience my flowers. Your women, if you have one, will also appreciate that quality.....

    Fun fact. That render was done with the figure hanging upside down. They just flipped it for photos.

    Hmmm I thought Dragstrip had a flatter face. Like Autobot's Cars, for example.
    I want you to have a his flat face attached to late-breaking product.
    Is it a luxury?

    How to spot a 'Fansboy':
    'So and so third party sucks'
    'Fanstoys looks better and will do it better'
    'wow this third party figure looks like trash! I aint even gonna give it a chance.'
    'thank God i am waiting for Fanstoys'

    What fascinating individuals

    Deadend looks great, Motormaster needs help, unless there is changes to Mototmaster he look like crap, especially when compared to the rest of the team.

    Hopefully. I’m alos really tempted to do a mismatched hands set.
    Yeah. I mean we’re all pretty fascinating. Especially since you’re calling out people for their judgements. Even if we might think they’re stupid. But ehh, it’s all fair game.
    Oh so it does. I love that look.

    I still don't understand these statements that the XTB figures are too small in bot modes. These are the same size as a standard MP car which is perfect for that scale. I do agree that I think their combined mode will be smaller then the scale of say Toy world Devastator, That's where FT comes into play for me. I will likely use XTB for bot mode and FT for combined.
