Just, wow. If you're a lover or just a peripheral fan of the Flame toys then buckle up because these are some amazing designs from Flame Toys of Kuro Kara Kuri Rodimus And Furai Model Optimus Primal, Lio Convoy, Big Convoy, and Optimus Primal! Also shown in a black silhouette is God Power Jet Armor! Seemingly with two modes this appears to be an add on piece to armor up previous Flame Toys Optimus Primes.

These were just recently posted to the Flame Toys Twitter account and show what few could argue are delicious fan service details. Windblade gives an impression of Sarah Stone's art from her IDW self titled series. Lio Convoy has his shoulder cape and a sword reminiscent of Alpha Trion's. Optimus Primal has all of his glorious guns drawn and ready for battle. And Big Convoy, well, he just looks big and mean and ready to stomp through an army of Predacons.

We've included the tweets that headed each image which gives additional tidbits such as artist names and status of production.

Enjoy the images and as always share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums. And Stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Windblade is cute, but I'd rather Frame Arms for my moldel kit robo-waifu needs.

However, those 3 Beastimuses look BAS-ASS as fok! :APPLAUSE:
I may consider getting at least one of them.

Wait, so the ROTF Jetfire armor is for their G1-styled primes? Darn, I was kinda hoping they were starting to do movieverse models. I wonder if you could find a way to attach it to one of the SS Primes though. . . :-?

Do we have confirmation that the armor actually fits all the previous Prime models? I have the IDW version. If this armor works with him, I'll definitely be picking it up! May not be canon, but how cool would it be to see IDW Optimus armor up?

All the other concepts are pretty cool, but I got my eye on that Lost Light Rodimus. That looks sweet :x

It's for the Kuro Kara Kuri figure line, not the Furai Model line.

Shame that the only update on Windblade is that they're still making Windblade.

You know what, looking back no I had no confirmation of that and shouldn’t have stated it. Sorry about the confusion gang that’s my bad. :oops:

The Beast Primes are amazing and I want them. Also Windblade looks adorable, she will be mine.

Definitely not my thing, but it's encouraging to see them try some transforming/partsforming with that optimus armor. Looks like it might include a godbomber or "apex" trailer too?

Also looks like they're toning down the pelvic thrusts, which is good.

Holy shirt.

My body is ready for the Beasts. All 3 of them look incredible! Lio Convoy has the most interesting look, but I am stoked for another Big Convoy!

Excited to see what the Windblade will look like when done.

That jet kit looks awesome, it'll be great to see how it looks on the Kuro Prime.

Rodimus is also looking really good! They need to do that design in the Furai kit set too.

Still waiting on the Hound they teased a prototype of last year, hopefully he comes before these guys. But I am ready for all the kits they have. I have 2 waiting in my Stack and 2 more that should be coming in stock very soon

I remember when I hated Windblade. But now I have at least one version of every figure they've made of her, and I'm most likely going to get this one.

I don't hate her myself. But I just have Windblade fatigue. She have been propped up a bit too much.
But this here sucker would still pay for a Siege version though. I'd love a Windblade tetrajet version. :x

I'd rather have a reissue of the TR version. Along with TR Misfire. Stupid smegging eBay markup

Bad distribution in your area, or you unfortunately missed out?
Either way, it always suck to rely on the secondary market to get ordinary figures.

The (IMO better) LG version of the TR mold, with regular sword, targetmaster and superior paint, is IIRC fairly affordable on Mandarake. At least, last time I checked.

Missed that figure so I actually checked the site (first I had heard of it btw) and every listing appeared sold out

Ah, fair enough. Just watch and wait, it's a preowned site so stuff regularly comes back in stock.

Well see Black Hat, I actually like the "weapon seat" gimmick of Titans Return. Plus the TR swords are designed to double as the altmode cannons, so..

Missed out because I was prioritizing other figures.
