  1. I don't get how a designer can do so much with Groove and then leave Streetwize to look like a upscaled Legends class figure.

     

    Loving Groove but thats it so far. (And that includes all of Uranos and Ares as well :) )

  2. IIRC They are free with the Scoria purchase. You can always opt not to use them. Personally I believe the dinobots were taller than the rest. I can live with them all being the same height but would prefer a larger Sludge and a smaller Swoop.

     

    Right now, even with the lifts, Grimlock looks too small but I get the feeling if numbers are high enough we will see an upscaled (maybe redesigned) MP Grimlock from FT.

     

    I hope Sludge is larger, I can not wait to see if they make him the bigger beast that he is and what he will look like with the rest of the team.

  3. So, instead of trying to match a toy that's been around for years now, they just decided to make Slag bigger and make lifts for MP Grimlock?

     

     

    One plain and simple explanation. MP-10.

     

    Grimlock was 08 and made before the new scale attempt by Takara. Why make 4 other MP Dinobots in the wrong size when you can just give Grimlock lifts (for now and if sales are strong make him upscaled at the end)

     

    It makes perfect sense and it truly is the most logical course of action.

  4. Ask and you shall recieve. FT just put out some major pictures showing size, Grimlocks feature and A GUN!!!!

    It appears that with the feet on Grimlock still doesn't outsize Slag BUT he is taller than Prime now and the feet seem to fit in flawlessly. Great job FT,.

  5. 4th party is just a joke for 3P groups that make add ons/upgrades for 3P groups. And then I read your last line. lol

     

     

    I wonder if this guy will have the same shiney and clear bits that the G1 and MP-08 figures have? Knowing FT they will.

     

    I also wonder is they will release all 4 Dinobots and if Jetfire was revealed only because there are other groups at the pre order stage for him?

     

    Two more quick comments.

     

    Love the stream line-ness of this guy and how half the dino isn't hanging off his feet. Great job with getting more narrow feet out of this guy.

     

    Are the "wings"/Dino back kibble hanging from his back or arms?

  6. $200 at BBTS (and little bitch sister TFSource) will be the max price on this thing. Actually I can see TFsource being more to cover the free shipping to Americans while screwing over international buyers.

     

    Anyway, I think finding him for $180 will be easy and I can also see prices lower than that from other sites. I think the price on this guy will rick. he is bigger than MP-08 and wilol fix the height issue for Grimlock.

  7. UT doesn't have a bot mode yet BUT they appear to have a new scale for the cassettes. I all for that.

     

    It is trying to get G1 cassettes into Sw and Blaster that kills them as Classic toys. They need smaller tapes and UT gets it.

  8. Thanks Scaleface.

     

    Also, I am adding information from the FT FB page:

     

    FT: "Sorry about the expensive price, but Ft-04 have about 100 more parts than quakewave.The mould cost is double of Ft-03. 25cm is head tall, total is about 27cm It will come with an add on part for MP08 to make it almost same height as Ft-04."

     

     

    I can't find a mention of the price though.

  9. FansToys (FT) has finally revealed their next offer in full prototype form. Slag which they will call Scoria and one will assume he will be in MP scale like Quakewave.

     

    Also interesting to note is that there is a silhouette of Swoop and what I figure is Jetfire.

     

    Looks like FT will be giving us the MP Dinobots and Jetfire and judging by their Quakewave release, they will win the MP wars for these figures.

     

    Pictures coming when I can find them.

    No, you see the carbon dioxide you exhale but never the air you inhale. For some it is rumour for others it is fact. For those that need physical proof it will always remain a rumour. For those that use simple logic...a rumour no more. :)

     

    We'll know soon enough when Warbotron releases their figure. I don't see the big deal since that is what MakeToys is compared to Fansproject. But I will say I don't know if they ever did say publically that that was true. I just wanted to know if you had confirmation of it being true. Of course you know I'm teasing you with the air I breath stuff..... :tfevil

     

     

    I know but I still want to be the winner so I had to counter on the air comment.

     

    But I assume it is very much the name as FP and MT.
