That Rodimus looks PERFECT!
The colors are a little too dark for my tastes, But this is probably a painted sample, Versus the plastic molded coloring one that'll be released.
I'm happy this great design finally has an official figure (obviously non-transforming, But that's a small price to pay, IMO).
Will be preordering the minute it goes up.
Also planing to do a review of it when it comes out, So watch out for that. :D
Oh, Also gonna need a black/purple repaint.

That Rodimus look awesome.... if's Rodimus was a human in armor. Because this one have the "Bayformer syndrome" of looking like a bot that cannot transform into anything.

That's a problem with a lot of the IDW designs after the aesthetic shift, IMO.

This kit remains my favorite that Flame Toys has put out. Devastator is a close second. Love this guy

My favorite too.
On the note of other Autobot Megatrons, There was that Combiner Wars one, But that looked nothing like Autobot Megatron (And was officially sold as Decepticon Megatron), And just inexplicably came with an Autobot symbol.
I always hoped that since the whole Autobot Megatron thing was done so well, That people would eventually get over the initial knee-jerk reaction.. But the very concept is so subversive to what is expected (Which is one of the reasons I like it so much), That some people still have reservations to the idea.
From Hasbro/Takara's point of view, They probably see Decepticon Megatron as a safer bet; What sells easier.
If more ambiguity is portrayed in Megatron's motives in future media, More people might warm to the idea, But as of now, I wouldn't expect any Autobot Megatrons from HasTak anytime soon.
:Shrug:

Autobot Megatron ended up working out so well, I love it.

I do have the CW Megs with his Autobot symbol on, have had him that way since I bought him. That one in particular is and will remain my transforming Autobot Megatron

WOAH! :shock:

This redesign is WAY better than the previous one. More "comic accurate" and she look like Windblade, not some Frame Arms girl cosplaying.

She may be my first Furai purchase. :x

Aside from the wings and the colour layout, there aren't that many changes over the original as the comparison gif from this post shows https://twitter.com/JangotheBlueFox/sta ... 2784972802

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, Powered Convoy and ThunderThruster, have let us know that Flame Toys have revealed new coloured images of their Furai Windblade model kit prototype!

Image

The announcement was made via the companies social media accounts.

The prototype is based on an updated design rather then the one that Flame Toys originally unveiled, with this one bearing wings that resemble her comic/TV/toy character, instead of the more butterfly looking ones which were intended to compliment her geisha look.

What do you think of this model? Will this be your first Furai model kit when it releases? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Looking back at what's about to be the one-year anniversary on the meltdown over the model, I honestly felt more upset about the lack of wings than the rest of the proportions since man were they puny in comparison.

More importantly how does she look from the back? That seemed to be the thing that angered most people (that would never have bought this in the first place) the first time around.

Image

Funny thing is every bit of original model concept art and the prototype above showed her from behind, but this time they seem to be being careful about how they pose her. :lol:

Anyway, the wings were always my primary issue so I'm happy with this. I also like that they made the gold headpiece more visible from the front.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see if there are any changes in the rear, although I suspect not, due to the lack of shots from behind.

Looks a bit generic or play arts-ish, I think the third party fem Starscream is more my thing/frame arms/macross fems but definitely needed her wings.

Greeting Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Powered Convoy has let us know that Flame Toys have made another reveal (after showing off the new Windblade prototype) on their social media accounts. What did they reveal? The full colour design of Kuro Kara Kuri Starscream!

Image

As is clear, this one still has a way to go before its finished and ready for sale but it does give us a good idea what the final product may look like. Flame Toys Kuro Kara Kuri range is their high end non-transforming figure range and already includes heavy hitters like Tarn and a fully combinable Victory Saber (made up of Star Saber and Victory Leo).

What do you think of this version of this fan favourite? Are you looking forward to the eventually unveiling of the prototype? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

This Starscream look a bit too Gundamesque but he does look pretty bad-ass.
I'll never buy him because of the price, but I'm still looking forward the finished product.
