Actually, it's pretty normal for a 3rd party release date to get pushed back time and again. Even for Fansprojects.

People seem to forget that City Commander was delayed for what? 4 months? 5? before it saw release the first time.

People seem to forget that FP is the exception, not the rule. Their products are sold before their release or even prototype pics because of their reputation. Xovergen only has one other project under their belt which failed badly so I wouldn't be surprised at all if they dropped this project if there is insufficient interest in it from the customers.

I would find it unlikely if they dropped it this close to the (supposed) release date. From speaking with a couple sellers at Botcon last year, they only put up preorders from new 3rd parties if the company can prove there's something coming down the pipe and it's near guaranteed to make it to the shelves. I think that's why BBTS got cold feet over Omega Supreme (that and cost) but that's another topic entirely.

If a company is well established such as FansProject or TFC, then retailers are more likely to put up a preorder based on the company's word and early designs.

Nah, they just mean that the preorder is in stock (i.e. the preorders aren't sold out yet). It's said that all along. It's confusing, but that's how RK always lists their preorders.

Very excited for this. I have my old Classics Prime out and next to my monitor already!

Let's just see if I can't use Junkion Blacksmith's headmaster and the Targetoids Optiaim with this set.

I can't wait either. Makes me feel better about not getting MP-13. I will be using a Ginrai instead of a Classics Prime.

Wow, that looks better than the previous pictures showed. I might have to look into this. It doesn't look like BBTS has a listing, but if they do...

They don't. Only one willing to risk this guy right now is RobotKingdom.

So judging from the pictures, the Armor add-on for Prime is going to get another Add-on?

A classics-style God Ginrai is unexpected but also too awesome for words.

The Powermaster and modified Classics Prime KO aren't being sold with this set. If it does decently, I'm sure they'll sell that as well.

How does classics Prime need to be "modified" to fit this set ?

On the powermaster part, it's real lazy to do an upgrade that turns classics Prime into Powermaster Prime and forget the Powermaster. And then instead of creating one for a future add on set, they want to give him wings. >:oP

No mods needed. I suggest that you go back to the picture of the prototypes. They show Classics OP on this set.

I think that the "modified Classics OP" was mentioned before when the thought was to release the Powermaster component in this set. Having PM attach to OP required changes to the grill, but since PM isn't being released at the moment, there's no need for a modified Prime.

I would be interested in the PM and modified OP being released at some point in the future, because Classics Prime clashes with Trailerforce due to the lack of chrome. Again, I sure wouldn't mind another run of Henkei Prime to be made available.

Exactly.

new-xovergen-trailerforce-tf-01-prototype-images-new-cab-section-new-wip-images-added-t86664s0.php

They have a Powermaster ready and a modified Classics Prime KO (and it IS a KO, even if they change it up a bit) to make it all work.

But, hey, you know what? It doesn't even need that to be canon. At the end of Masterforce (I think it was Masterforce) all of the PM bodies become TFs in their own right, Ginrai included. If you absolutly MUST have canon fiction to justify this purchase, there it is.

It really is a versatile toy. I even like that they made where you don't even need a prime to get the bot mode.
