3rd party toy maker tfclub has unveiled the computer graphic images of the "Not Constructicons" member - "Not Long Haul".

These images only show the alternate mode, which is a dump truck. "Not Long Haul" will also form the lower torso of "Not Devastator".

Oh...when I read "Graphic" pictures I expected oil splattered walls, and pieces of "not Constructions" lying on the floor with their Spark housings violently torn out.
This is pretty cool though. I can handle these pics too. Getting excited for the whole project to be completed even though I'll never be able to afford it.

TFClub has really taken on a mammoth task, it will be gorgeous if they can pull it off. I assume that those are 'Not Devastator's' thighs in the dump truck bed. I can't wait to see a prototype. I really hope Not Devastator has a G1 style chest wing.

Pardon my cynicism but I reserve spoolage for botmode resins with articulation joints. Until then, I'll remain hopeful for a FansProject upgrade. What can I say, I love a relatively proven track record.

I want these so bad I'm actually in a little bit of pain.

Looking awesome, but I don't think we're going to see any chest wing armour... I hope we do, but I just don't see where it'd come from. I can deal without it though, small sacrifice for a fully articulate Devastator.
:CON:

Maybe we can *not* say not anymore? :P

Anyway, looks good. Looking forward to finding out how expensive these will be.

Brilliant. I love how the pieces all look to be actual parts of the figure rather than extra accessories. The groin shield and upper thighs are all part of Longhaul this time round, which might make him a little larger than the other two?

I'm guessing that the chest shield will be an extra piece though that perhaps comes with Scrapper (couldn't you attach it to his G1 figure in alt mode?).

Ambitious indeed. This is going to be expensive, I'd say around $350 or so.

The chances of me being able to afford this are really nil. :BANG_HEAD:

Total speculation on my part, but I'm guessing $80.00 a figure, making the whole set $480.00.

Hmmn, let me think about this again.
OK, all I have to go on is the Primary school figure, so lets work around that shall we?
Alright, subtract the costs of LED lights, extra heads and translucent plastic (roughly 15-20 dollars), then add the additional costs of the size (which considering the Primary School figure is about scout size it would be quite significant) along with all the elaborate joints and... By jove... El Duque, I do believe your right! You'd think those TFclub chaps are out of their blinkerd minds! Goodness me.

OK sorry 'bout that. I'm in an odd mood. :P

Anyway. I feel sorry for my brother. He wants this thing way more than I do. But there is no friggin way either of us could possibly afford it. *sigh* Crazy peoples makin der crazy toys.

Cool! But now I'm trying to figure out if they're designing the figures with Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks :P

I know the presence of a chest wing goes against what they have been doing with their IDW design, I mean look at the new Not Long Haul pics vs this art:


I think it is pretty clear how Not Long Haul becomes the crotch. I just really hope they make the wing with Not Scrapper as Oilspill suggested. That way people can use it or not as they wish, as opposed to hoping another 3rd party manufacturer makes it, adding more expense to what is already going to be a very expensive (but oh so desirable) set.

I was figuring the cost of this thing would be around 500 bucks. And the shipping on this thing is going to be crazy expensive if it's coming direct from over-seas.

This is another one of those TF items that I think are really cool, and I would buy if I made gobs and gobs of money, but there is just no way I can either afford it nor display it. It's cool for the people who can, but I just don't see this thing getting enough customers to actually get made.

I agree, I will end up getting this either way, (I would just prefer the purple Chest wing and a purple mixing drum on Mixmaster for a G1 Cartoon look) I think those black things in the tray are the knee articulation for Not Devastator and the flip out hands for Not Long Haul. You are right, something could attach into the fist holes in vehicle mode...

I was hooked at "graphic images"...I thought it was gonna be robo-porn or something like that. SO naturally I'm a little disappointed #-o

The vehicle mode looks sick...I really need a job so I can get this set...
