    It's a shame that he's too small, other than that I like him.

    If this thing really is just a short deluxe it will be a tragic missed opportunity. I like it, but I'm not buying a dwarf Impactor, I need the full measure Voyager.....or nothing.

    The legs are the right size but the rest is too small. Even though I'm desperate for an Impactor I will have to pass on Impactor junior.

    So many people waiting to throw money at a voyager Impactor and yet no one wants any of it.

    Oh, I've been hankering for a decent Impactor toy for a very long time now, and alas this one does not scratch that particular itch.
    Still want igear's Presser.
    MMC are doing a figure that is an obvious Impactor repaint, maybe that'll do?

    Voyager or nothing. Impactor is one of the few wreckers I don't have.

    Not 'obvious', and if they just repaint their Turmoil in Impactor colors, it'll just look like a beige and purple Turmoil. It needs a new arm, a new head, and new shoulders to pass for Impactor.

    Looks good, but he's too damn small. Impactor needs to be able to look Generations Springer in the eye. I honestly don't know why they thought making him small deluxe sized was a good idea.

    Hrmph, was obvious to me, and you got it without me saying Turmoil.
    The truth will out, as they say...

    Not too shabby... Shame he's as small as Trailbreaker/Hoist.

    At least make a Voyager.... not a smallish Deluxe.

    Hah! No, it's 'obvious' to me too because of the figures MMC's currently slated to make, only one of them has a thread where people seem to think they look the same. Admittedly, I think clamoring for a Bovis repaint as Impactor makes about as much sense, but I do pay attention to the crazy theories that get bounced around. :) 

    Look at the thing:
    [​IMG]

    The top of the chest has those collar box things on either side of his head. The head is wrong, of course, but I imagine the 'repaint' callers are assuming that would be changed. The arm isn't exactly a harpoon, nor could it easily be one, so that's a totally new arm too. The only thing really similar is the notional shape of the abdomen, but the details on it all match Turmoil's details, not Impactor's. That's not to say MMC may not have some brillaint plan to use the same engineering on an Impactor style toy, because they do have similar robot proportions, but Commotus certainly wouldn't work as a mere 'repaint' like Azalea/Zinnia.

    Size complaints aside, X2's figure here looks like Impactor, even in gray.

    I really like MMC's products, but if they were to just slap some Impactor colors on Commotus and call it Impactor, that's just not worth 3P prices to me. I'd much rather have small Firing Pin who looks like Impactor than a large Commotus with Impactor colors.

    I don't think that's what MMC has in mind. I've seen things.

    I'm not crazy, and others also think Turmoil would be a great basis for an Impactor too. Certainly more so than Bovis.
    Maybe "repaint" is the wrong word, maybe "retool" would be better, but geez, why be so pedantic about it?

    Having been to AA's raucous 3rd party panel, I think MMC has Impactor covered :)
