    Also, for some reason XTB prefers to do more Asian based shows than TFCon for reveals or real effort. I would expect upcoming shows in China to be far more telling than even the next TFCon at the end of October. They are pumping out a ton a repaints now with no news on their next figures.

    think they are so invested into their Gravestone/Motormaster that they have let other projects fall by the wayside for now.

    They have 3rd Party over at SDCC, but only licensed ones. FlameToys is 3rd Party Licensed. XTB is non-licensed.

    Some ideas:

    The judge can come with some or one sharkticon.

    The prosecuter can come with a quint courtroom playset

    The scientist can come with some or one alicon

    The executioner can come with a sharkticon death pit

    The bailiff can come with a jail cell.

    XTB or someone may do all of those other figures but I doubt they come together. They are all likely to be MP scale and people may buy multiple for troop building on Sharks and Alicons. Playsets would be cool but I again doubt they go that far. Like everything else people are likely to have to create their own displays using available materials.

    Yeah. I wouldn't want anything to up the price on these.
    These armybuild characters are best kept at an affordable price.

    We may see three packs of Sharkticons and Alicons though? Those guys are often sold in multi-packs and XTB have shown a willingness to do that with their Scourge.

    if xtb are wise they should price these much lower than their transforming figures

    Agreed. They could make more money through armybuilding if these are below or even around a hundred than if they make these very expensive.

    Three-packs I can see happen with these guys.

    A Quintesson shouldn't be anywhere near $100. There's just not enough to them. No transformation and the only articulation will be in the tentacles.

    I agree. I was only talking about worst case scenario.

    The only company with any appreciable news and updates from the last con was MMC, so it seemed. They actually had quite a bit to reveal there. XTB were no-shows, IIRC. Not even in the slide show.

    X transbots would be awesome if they did something original such as 3 judges; 3 sharkticons; or a scientist with an alicon; or a bailiff with a jail cell....( perhaps as cardboard image like toy hax....to make it affordable.)
    Executioners death pit could be a simple plastic bucket that is painted up....(that should not cost much.... what could that charge to? 30 bucks?
    The prosecuters court could be pure cardboard....around 20 bucks would be fair.

    An extravagant expensive thing should be some kind of gigantic quintesson ship. A sharkticon or alicon would be small ....about the size of a fanstoys reflector....so maybe 3 for $130? Or so? That seems fair

    Wew! I presume it's MP scale?

    Do we know what Autobot Spike is going to go for yet?
