    Streetwise looks to be a heavy remold of their Wildrider they have the same feet.

    Looks good. Happy that XTB is doing Protectobots too, because I don't want my Masterpiece First Aid to be nearly the size of Optimus Prime.

    Putting aside how salty I feel right now about there being no Menasor update...

    This looks like a good start with Streetwise. I spot a pin hinge at the wrist, possible extra articulation?

    And yeah those feet are straight from their Stunticons.

    I'm interested to see how XTB will approach doing the combiner body for this, and if it will be a torso like a Zeta combiner or something that transforms into the torso like the Menasor trailer that still doesn't exist

    Gravestone trailer before I buy anything else, and only if it's reasonably priced.

    Pity, because it does look interesting, particularly the arms.

    Pure white=pass. So far MMC/Ox is the only company that apparently ever looked at either the original toon or the original toy. He's light grey, not white.

    Nice render. Menasor will be what defines most of this ones combined mode, commercial success. And while I have no interest in vanilla Autobot combiners ill keep tabs on it.

    This might be my Defensor if it turns out to be good, they don't do the combined parts as a separate purchase bullshit and they price it reasonably.

    looking forward to seeing the rest please don't mess up hotspot like mmc !! their hotspot don't look right just like their onslaught which is a shame the mmc limb bots look great but will buy them as placeholders until xtb or fanstoys finish this team like i did with the combaticons which are waiting to be sold for better versions :lol

    Hey looks really good. But after the way they handled their Stunticons I'm kinda burned out on XTB. The wait between figures was way too long. When was Crack Up first released? 2 years ago? Each figure in the meantime has 3 different versions and there's still no Menasor... But they know how to nail the toon look, I'll give them that!

    Well, we probably have some time until pre orders in NA start showing up, so I don't have to decide XTB or MMC. I'm interested in the scale of the individual bots for both sets

    Those feet are laughably bad, IMO.

    Everyone else's limb bots are MP Seeker sized.

    I just think the combined mode doesn't look very good, maybe the thighs are too long? Or maybe because it's 1st draft?

    For example, compare with Zeta's

    Maximas Pro has more "human proportions" Which I am ok with, since it improves the range of motion of the lower part of the body.
