It looks like it's made of candle wax.
Where did these guys get the idea that there was enough demand for these characters to make it financially viable to make them?

Other than companies making Quintessons, Springer, Arcee, Hearts of Steel Prime, the Autoscouts, the MP Coneheads, and all the other 3rd party merchendise?

If it were MUCH cheaper it might even have been worth getting. But, as you say .... candle wax. The headsculpt alone makes it not worth it.

That looks terrible.

Of all the third party companies, I'm still awaiting some Fembots that look decent.

i keep looking at her and she looks like a female version/sister of G1 Repugnus to me. Same colours and backpack and little beady eyes in bot mode. Now she needs to shoot sparks and i'd be sold.

Anybody notice that the legs are basically the same as the recent Arcee's? So it's just a heavy remold, I guess.

They're releasing Arcee, Firestar, Minerva, Moonracer and Elita-1.. so I wouldn't doubt it.

a better head and a few paint apps would go a long way to making this a better looking figure.

I'm usually not one to complain about backpacks, but that one is HUGE!

Actually this is being made by the same people who made Delicate Warrior, who is considerably better than IT Valk. Hopefully the pics we've seen are only prototypes. They did a great job on Delicate Warrior. I've got both and there's really no comparison.

Those pictures make the plastic look really cheap and flimsy. But I would order Firestar simply because I don't have her yet.

I'd buy it for a Deluxe price, but not for the price they will probably charge for it.
