Dear gosh, this is something I did not need to see. That is sorely tempting

Well that didn't work out so well. All I wanted was Nemesis Prime (didn't really matter which version, I'd have taken either), but the coupon knocked it out of free shipping. $6 off, but $4.99 for shipping doesn't help much. Maybe I can find something for $1.01 to make it work... :-?

It's kinda misleading to say that these are kits you paint yourself... I mean you CAN if you want but if that was really necessary why release all 3 seekers and color variants of Optimus? They're a lot more approachable than a model tank or plane, all the plastic is colored and there's color-correcting stickers for those who don't want to paint for any reason.

Flame Toys Tarn Reissue Announced

Greetings all. Powered Convoy is back with more Flame Toys news! This time the user has let us know that Flame Toys has announced a reissue of Tarn via their official Facebook page! This is exciting news as Tarn has been a very sought after piece that has long been sold out. Tarn was part of Flame Toys Kuro Kara Kuri line and was the second figure released in the series. This is just a teaser image however, as Flame Toys has yet to announce any other details about the reissue regrading price and availability. The previous release of Tarn was back in 2018 and commanded a price of $399.99 US which is enough to make anyone's wallet burst in flames!

Tarn hails from the IDW comics as part of the DJD (Decepticon Justice Division) and was a rather brutal character that wore a Decepticon insignia on his face. He and the rest of the DJD struck fear into anyone they pursued. We are still waiting for Tarn and the rest of the DJD to be introduced into the Generations line at some point. Make it happen Hasbro!

Are you excited for this reissue? Is your wallet about to implode from the sheer awesomeness of this figure? Let us know in the comments below and keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers needs!

Not only that, but they are also snap-on kits. No glue needed. What super convenient. Still, a sharp knife is needed to remove the sprue marks. Other than that, it's pretty low-level kit building... meaning FUN to do!

I still have to buy one of those TF kits but so far, I did some High-Grade Gundam and there's High-Grade Grendizer Infinitism coming for me. My next one may be the Bumblebee because for me, it will be having a MP Action Masters Bee.

I do admit that is a great looking figure, but just not the type I collect. This is good news for those that missed out the first time

Nice figure but I couldn't justify 400 for a non-transforming figure before and after paying that for MP-44 and he is transformable and super-poseable, I still can't justify it (even if it were made off 100% stainless steel).

Flame Toys is releasing a Decepticon version of Autobot Megatron. Looks like his face is new.

https://www.facebook.com/flametoyshk/po ... &__tn__=-R

So for those of you who liked the model but didn't like the Autobot aspect, this may be the version for you.

Flame Toys IDW Megatron "Decepticon Version" announced

Greetings all. Flame Toys is on fire! Powered Convoy is back yet again with even more news to share! Flame Toys has made another announcement via their official Facebook page that IDW Megatron is coming! This version looks identical to their Furai 06 IDW Megatron (Autobot version) model kit with the exception that this is the Decepticon version with the obvious insignia swap and what looks to be a new face as well. Megatron is listed at number 14 in the Furai series with a release date of May, 2020 for $50 U.S. This may be disappointing for those that already own the Autobot version since there is little incentive to double dip on this figure. Where is the Furai stealth bomber Megatron?

Are you excited for Decepticon Megatron or do you already own the Autobot version? Is there enough of a difference in the figure for you to pick this up? Let us know in the comments below and keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers needs!

Bit of a slap in the face to everyone who bought the Autobot version of Megatron, thinking it would be the only one Flame Toys made...

It's really not, the Autobot Megatron was the proper version of this, the one everyone wanted from this design.

The Decepticon version is more like the cheap second run

Rodimus looks great, spot on for the IDW model. Primal looks good too, very Brave-looking.

But holy mama that Windblade! Quite aside from the, uh, obvious, that is some sublime looking engineering on the torso articulation. I imagine she'll be a joy to pose.

Flame Toys Furai Model Kit IDW Rodimus, Optimus Primal, Windblade Revealed

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian AcademyofDrX, we have news that the next 3 Flame Toys Furai model kits have been revealed, and they are none other than IDW Rodimus, Optimus Primal, and Windblade!

Up first we have Rodimus, who is a near perfect replication of his form assumed in the pages of More Than Meets The Eye and Lost Light, from IDW Publishing. Rodimus held this form for 6 years, and it has become a well known body for him, although this is the first official toy we have gotten of this design. This also means that soon, you can have the Lost Light Co-Captains together again soon!

Secondly, we have Optimus Primal, who is in an all new form based on his original Beast Wars body. Primal's new body is a pretty bulky body, complete with large arm cannons, large back cannons, some jump jets, and what appears to be individually articulated fingers, which are quite large. He also has some pretty neat stylized fur.

Finally, we have Windblade, who is also a brand new design. This new design acts more like a skin suit, with very little in the way of Transformers-like bits.

All 3 designs will roughly come to a height of 6 inches, and will all be somewhere around the $40-$50 range.

You can check out the 3 new designs below, which are all in the gray stage, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I absolutely love that Primal and Rodimus!

Rodimus, I am so excited to have the IDW design official at last, and He, Megs, Drift, and my CW Magnus will all look fantastic together as the command crew.

And that Primal design is Boss! I love it! I cannot wait to see the Lio Convoy and Big Convoy they make in this style too!

Gotta love that sexy Windblade but for one thing. Where are her wings? Because as she is there, she'd be right at home in the Battle Angel Alita universe rather than Transformers.
Same thing for the guys too. They all look like kick-ass cyborgs, not Transformers.

Man, that Optimus Primal got put through a serious Gundam filter. As for Windblade, I bet people will be butt hurt. :lol:
