Did you think there was something that was a little off with the X-Transbots Ironhide and Ratchet images that were posted yesterday morning
? There's a good reason for that, it turns out they're not prototypes at all, but paper crafts. While X-Transbots is planning to produce versions of both characters, these images were posted to their facebook page
to give fans an idea of what their figures would look like in robot mode. They later posted that they would be releasing ABS prototype images soon.

That does explain the lack of knees at least.

I thought they looked kinda off. I guess that explains why when I first saw them they looked like cell-shaded renders.

Yeah, the lack of joints and the static poses they do just screams Revoltech.
