Well, then it’s Sherlock himself!
Always nice to see Hauler’s green color! One of the best colors in the transfomers world!
What is the size if these guys and could you provide a YouTube link to your channel. Thanks for getting this done
Can You please make a render showing how Caravaggio scales with X-Transbots Constructicons ...
Yeah, Dante, Vinci, Caravaggio...just Tirador is a bit off. They should have stuck with Italians for all 4.
If you can get XTB to stop using fake parts then that would be great
ok cool, might be something i consider.
The generations Solar Storm Grappel is probably the closest to the alt mode seen in the cartoon. Within MP, Maketoys is probably the closest to the more square look of Hauler in the cartoon. I would totally be up for getting a purpose-built original Hauler, but I gotta admit that the market for making Grapple-but-less-rounded probably doesn't justify making new parts.
Meh. I prefer better proportions and cleaner modes over using all the parts efficiently.
Duplicate parts are just a part of the game in 2021.
They've been a part of the game since MP-01
Honestly I'm glad this exists. I can now use different molds for each of the four truck lads and I don't have to track down the Ocular Max Hauler or sell a kidney to pick this guy up
Cool molds….questionable engineering
The alt modes on all of these guys are super clean, definitely getting at least one of the 4 perhaps more
Already got a great looking Grapple from TT. But I've got a Hauler shaped hole in my heart that Caravaggio may just be able to fill. I'm totally down on a PO for this dude. Always interesting to find another mold of the old repaint characters just for a little differentiation. Skipped the TT Artfire, but Tirador is also on my watch list.
Don't understand the complaints about obscure characters. TT is hitting all the big names so I'm looking to 3rd Party to fill in some gaps. Not really looking for a yet another 3P Shockwave or 3P Sunstreaker, but get me some 3P TargetMasters and I'll be a happy collector.
Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
Pics from fellow member GRAW. XTB's mold looks to be a good balance of all these.
MMC Roadcrane vs Caravaggio
Anybody think these will use some kind of parts forming? No sure how all the side details suddenly vanish in the renders?
I think the legs may partly turn inside-out so a lot of the vehicle detailing ends up inside them. Although I feel like some aspects of the renders may be a bit unfinished or errored. If you look at the alt mode from the rear, the crane is nearly floating above the soles of his robot feet, something's not quite right there (I'd hope).
