MMC News: KM-03 Knight Morpher Cyclops Pre-Orders & KM-05 Air Screech Teaser

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

Ah, so that's where the photos from the collage on Robot Kingdom came from.

I was wondering when we'd get to see those pics full size. =) Looks slick and I can't wait to save up and nab him when it comes out.

Right arm kibble? No, that's a built-in shield.

I love it! I can't wait to have this monstrosity squaring off against Prime.

I hope they'll make more Autobots soon. Optimus is kind of outnumbered

Oh is it? I never read Hearts of Steel. That makes more sense, however I consider anything that limits articulation or posing like that to be kibble. Fair enough.

This thing is insane. As in, insanely awesome. And uh, kind of insanely priced. Although considering what Takara charges for MPs nowadays, fairly appropriate. Just out of my league, though.

I'm heavily leaning that way too. I liked the first figure. He's only okay though with multiple construction issues. I can not justify buying multiple figures that come from a comic that was so terrible though. Sure they look okay to me but lines are having to be drawn in my collecting. I'm taking a hard look at third party stuff first. These guys are out for me.

It's still 3rd party even though I love my black colored TF collection, I would pass.

Like Flux said, I must draw the line, and this "Shall not pass!"

I too drew a line, however I finally decided to nix the TF: Prime line for this and other 3rd party items.

I can always go back and collect the Prime line during the next Movie craze.

You know what my "line in the sand" is? Generations FOC Bruticus. Sorry Hasbro, but when third-party companies are outclassing you to the degree TFC has with Hercules and FansProject has with their Bruticus limbs that's a problem for me.

Really, you're not going to even try FoC Bruticus?

I know there is 3rd party stuff that is much better than HASBRO's stuff, the price on this particularly is scaring me off.

If this thing happens to get clearanced down to $100 or less, and not for similar reasons as Sonic Ron, I might jump back on board...but for now it's off the table. And without this one, I'll surely be skipping the subsequent releases. Kinda hoping it stays off the table, though. As cool as it looks, these just aren't necessary for my collection.

Hell, I don't know. When I see them on the pegs I may change my mind. One thing I can say for sure though, if I buy them, they will be the only combiner team I have that are displayed as individuals and not combined. I can understand price being an issue for many fans when it comes to the third-party stuff, but just think, if Hasbro/Takara had made the TFC Hercules figures they would have only cost you about $20.00 a pop and there's no reason they couldn't make those. They're rather simplistic figures.

Exactly this. The only reason why the 3rd part stuff is so expensive is because they don't have the means to produce it as easily. I just don't understand the engineering behind hasbro's stuff, some of them seem to have been rushed during the process, just like fall of cybertron bruticus.

I suspect it has to do with the coal burner emiting light, but I can't say for sure.

It may also be an artifact of the fact that Hearts of Steel as a story doesn't know itself when it takes place:

Mark Twain lived in San Francisco from 1964 to 1966, but he mentions having ONE daughter, which would place it somewhere between 1972(birth year of his first daughter) and 1974(birth of his second daughter).

In addition, John Henry's famous interactions with steam hammers(or more importantly, his race against them) occurs anywhere between 1969 and 1971.

The invention of the Lightbulb occurs in 1979, with a patent in 1980, so it's possible, too, that someone didn't fact check, especially since the "lights" are grills/vents on the actual original design:

Image

They also appear to be vents/grills and the right color of the production model, as opposed to the orange ones the prototype has.

Gotta admit, that design is pretty much bang-on the concept art.

Looks like I have to have a chat with the owner next time I'm in town.

which one is KMX-01? Is that the shattered glass Prime?
