because of that rotor effect, it can sell $10 more.
1. This is going to be ridiculously expensive. They're throwing in add-ons (unless those are in an accessory pack...lol) to make the value feel there.
2. That said, it looks cool and like a good package.
3. I'd rather them have more of a matte finish
4. That paint on the front looks really sloppy. It needs another coat. Hopefully this is just a test-shot or hand-painted or something, and not an actual factory sample of the final product.
I'll buy if it's the price it would have been had they released it two years ago. Otherwise, I have a Springer on my shelf.
I agree about the accessories, especially the rotor disc. That's gonna go in the tub.
As far as the paint I agree it's not great but I don't think this is a final production piece, I think it's a painted test piece so the paint is probably a quick airbrushing job.
the faces being yellow has nothing to do with any incarnation of springer so hope they are not too but this is xtb/kfc look at the way they coloured blitzwing
Completely get where you're coming from. But since then they've nailed colors pretty well so I'm hoping this is just a miscolored test piece.
Needs a clear cockpit but other than that I'm keeping a close eye on this. FT's Springer's place in my collection is looking rather tentative all of a sudden.
Accessory pack confirmed:
- flight stand
- spinning rotor
- human figure
Love how this Springer is coming so far. Was hoping that the colors would be finalized but eh, guess we gotta wait a bit longer.
5 faces? Drooooooooooooool. Gimme!
Pretty sure that these colors are not final. If you remember, we got a view of Kup in a more metallic paintjob back in February.
And then come December for the official solicitations, perfectly normal paintjob.
As for the yellow faces, that's a total sign to me flashing "Not Final". Would be an absolutely stupid move to not color them of course.
I think some people missed an important detail on that XTB facebook post;
Looks like there may be a cheaper version without all the added (crap ) accessories.
Honest to god they didn't have that before.
Kinda lucky I didn't refresh the page yet, haha.
I'll be getting this Premium version either way, hahaha.
Ditto, but the dilemma now is;
2 Premium (1 MISB, 1 to Open/Play/Display).
1 Premium (MISB) , 1 Standard (Open/Play/Display)
I mean, there's a very strong chance of regular and EX(pensive) versions of all their stuff from this point on. What would be optimal for me, at least, is if they put out the metallic v and non-metallic v at the same time and put all the damn accessories in an accessory/add-on pack.
Metallic junkeon, check.
Metallic cyclonus, check.
Metallic sweeps, check.
It's $199.99 on BBTS. Master X MX-10 Virtus (Premium Ver.)
I wonder how much the non-premium version will be? If there even will be one.
Master X MX-10 Virtus
I've never been inclined towards Virtus' look to begin with, so I'll just comment on something new I haven't seen before. Those dark green panels above the arms look like they just gave up and said "good enough".
Wow, that's a big difference. The only thing I even care about in the premium version is the faces. Shame there isn't at least one extra face....
FT's copter mode still looks the best.
I am guessing they came up with the Premium version to recover some money i.e. hoping people will trade up from the regular one.
I'm fine with the look. Only things I hope XTB does is add the yellow to the chest vent and paint the face the usual white-grey we see with MPs and not that yellow that we've seen so far, wew.
According to BBTS it's $199 (Premium) & $129 (Standard)
