Hold on!
Mastermind Creations are the guys behind Hexatron but Mech iDeas are behind Apex & Geminus, sooooo was this this a typo from BBTS or are we seeing some cross-3rd-party venture right here?

Rumour has it that one of MMC's designers split off and created his own company. I guess it still falls under MMC's purview?

c/o CenoKibble from MMC as posted over at TFW2005

With regards to the MMC / Mech Ideas crossover; one of the MMC engineers wanted to go his own way and we are helping him out as he gets on his feet, and we wish him the best of luck, we think any competition is healthy as it makes everyone up their game, which results in a better product for the fans.

And yes, the name is a tribute to both the Wreckers and Motley Crue.

So the shoulder things are removable ? That makes sense considering the mold is being used for the clones. I hope there are options for them so they can look more G1.

If it's still processing and hasn't entered the warehouse yet, you can message them and they'll take it out of processing.
