The Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have uploaded an extensive image gallery of a prototype X-Transbots Glider (aka Jazai Toys Powerglide). The images show off the figure's articulation and mold modifications, mainly the inclusion of ball joints. We also get a nice size comparison with Generations Warpath.

Looks better than the MakeToys one. What's with the Badboy repaint? And why does he look remolded?

Work of art!
Pre-ordered the minute it's available.

Deluxe size > mini bot size.

Looks great... and to scale with ole Warpath. Nice. I can at least display Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Warpath, and Powerglide together.... right?

Or Windcharger and that Botcon Huffer on a shelf...

Or big Powerglide and Seaspray over there on the other side of the room....

Somebody... step up to the plate and make me a full set of minibots in the same scale. :BANG_HEAD:

And people thought MP-10 had duck feet... :lol:

Not too bad looking. I really like the scale of him. I may pick this version up too along with the MT one if the price is right.

I think that's the original Jizaitoys Powerglide kit, but repainted into Badboy by the photographer (Resin kits usually being colorless and all), and he looks remolded cause the X-Transbots version is modified to have more articulation.

It's a great transformation, but I hope they figure out a way to keep the pieces locked together. Is this the same maker that just released Wheelie last week?

Apart from that seemingly loose hip connection, and based on looks alone, this one seems better than MakeToy's by a considerable distance.

Way better than that injustice by MakeToy's. See MakeToy's, see how much better it could have looked without the damn screw in the forehead? :VEHI:

Cool!

My preferred size class for the minibots is Scout Class, but this looks like it may work quite nicely.

i think all figures these days NEED an upper thigh swivel. i think that needs to be standard on all transformers.

I just noticed that KOToys is saying that this release is from CHMS. Just to put that out there. CHMS seems to have a rep for good KOs, so maybe it's a good sign.

This looks really nice, will consider picking it up if they fix the hip connection.

I have been hearing otherwise about their KO's. This might change my mind.

Why does every 3rd party Powerglide made has to have this Super-Deformed goofy look to it? Can't they make a proper modern Powerglide without having him look so outdated and cartoony looking?

The official Hasbro Ultra one is pretty bad but I can't say these are much better. The only decent Powerglide so far is the DOTM Scout despite the movie aesthetics and he is just an ok toy.

3 3rd parties so far making this character and IMO none of them are worth it.

The originals were made by the same people (Jizaitoys), this Powerglide and that Wheelie are KOs made by two different people (CHMS made the Powerglide, don't know Wheelie though).

The CHMS Seekers I got were decent .... but not perfect.

@cannonfodder4000
There're two Jaizitoys Wheelie KOs coming out, one upsized, so CHMS / X-Transbot is probably making one of them.

It's a neat little figure, and the proportions seem correct to accomodate for the alt mode.....but I'm just not sold on the robot mode. It seems like a perfect upgraded-translation from original toy intent, but I don't know that it has a proper, fitting place in the Classics/Universe/Generations line-up..if for nothing else than the size of the head with its Jawa look (or Final Fantasy Vivi, He-Man Orko look, should you prefer).

I need a painted pic first.

There's something off on the hips that really turn me off.

I demand more pictures of robot taint.

Make sure the build quality is up to scratch, and you have a sale!

I like it.

I hope it is from CHMS. I am comfortable spending money with KO toys. They take good care of me many times.

Pretty impressive. Dammit, now I want Wheelie AND this.

Realy like the size next to WP or should i say the correct size, wasnt a fan of ultra PG i chose Stormcloud he looked more fitting.

I would happily get this guy to miss out on a Neo Minibot version of him for scale but i sort of had the idea in my head of having nice up to date versions of the MB (igear) including a Wheelie not that giant they made, same with PG mabey i could get both wait and see how XTB pulls off.

Yeah, I gotta chime in to echo the same... for KOs, CHMS has been fantastic quality. In the past I've had problems (paint, swapped parts) even with Hasbro and Takara products. These guys have — while not 100% PERFECT — been next to perfect. From a KO company, that's all anyone could ever ask for.

Very pleased with CHMS. Couldn't recommend them more. >:oP

Much better - this means I don't have to bother with the Maketoys Powerglide/Seaspray combo, so I'm happy >:oP

I've got some CHMS stuff recently this year, and I can't fault it for what it is - they are the top-tier of direct KO, quality wise.
