So, there are a bunch of upcoming 3rd party not-Powerglides now, and I love me some Powerglide. Which one was the first that was revealed? All I know is I liked that one the best. Anyone remember?

Ah yes, Powerglide seems to have become the Bumblebee of the third-party market. I believe the first prototype to be shown was Maketoy's Bomber, but there are three other Powerglide projects that I can think of:

Maketoy's: Bomber

iGear: unrevealed Mini Warrior

SuperAlloy: Based on the JazaiToys Powerglide but upsized to deluxe with diecast
Image


CHMS/X-Transbots(from what I gather these are one in the same): Glider, also based on JazaiToys Powerglide upsized to deluxe but all plastic

Thanks El Duque! I still stand by what I said. MakeToy's got some good stuff coming. Looking forward to some of those other iGear Mini Warriors, though.

oh weird for some reason i thought the CHMS and the Superalloy one were the same. i want one of those two, as its only right to have him deluxe (imo) but i dont want to have to buy him from KO Toys (dot) com. where were people buying the superalloy wheelie?

while were at it, is there going to be a legends sized jizai wheelie? whos making that?

It looks like it but bear in mind they're also supposed to be doing the Wreckers lineup from LSOTW.

As well as Ironhide/Ratchet, Sharkticons, more miniMP Seekers and the like.

From this review it seems that the Superalloy toys are made by a company called Yom-G.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhZkWvwt_RM

So as of right now FIVE third party Powerglides are:

1. JazaiToys Powerglide (came out as a model kit, long sold out)

2. X-Transbots Glider/Air Robot (based on the JazaiToys design, upsized, out now, has been repainted as a Cobra Rattler, ehobby Bad Boy and Micromaster Hot House)

3. Maketoys Bomber (new design, color pictures seen, not released yet, scout sized)

4. Yom-G Superalloy Powerglide Warrior (based on Jazaitoys design with diecast and upsized, box seen, deluxe sized)

5. igear Mini-Warrior, not named (new design, outline seen in art for Rager and Spray, Legends size)

From the looks of things there will be 4 different Wheelie toys from third parties too, same as the ones above, except without #3 from Maketoys.

Oh damn! I might go completion-ist on these if Spray and Rager turn out well, and they look like they are going to.

I'm willing to buy a Seaspray and Powerglide from anybody that makes them.

The MakeToys one is also Legends sized, there is also another KO of the Jizai figure on the way.
