The Kuro Kara Kuri kits include the currently for sale Shattered Glass Drift, the soon to be released Star Saber and the recently revealed Optimus Prime. Drift is a red repaint of his original Kuro Kara Kuri Figure, representing his Shattered Glass IDW body, a look inspired somewhat by Deadpool. Star Saber is directly based on his IDW self, and will combine with Victory Leo, who will be released later on in the line. Optimus is a stylization based on his IDW self but with some Japanese flare and energy pulses.
The Furai model kits include both currently released figures as well as upcoming figures. Among the already released figures are Starscream, Thundercracker, Attack Mode Optimus Prime, Nemesis Prime (attack and IDW versions), and Bumblebee. Among the soon to be released figures are their version of Devastator, Drift, G1 Optimus Prime, Shattered Glass Optimus Prime, and IDW Autobot Megatron. The kits have proven to be a popular trend with the fandom, and we are hoping to see some more kits this weekend, including their Hound and Windblade, both of whom have been teased prior.
Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

You and me both. It is a fantastic looking thing, and I want to be able to get that design in some fashion

The Nemesis Prime kit is an exclusive evil Decepticon redeco of the IDW Optimus Prime model kit, and is now available for $40 on Bluefin. The set is only a limited stock, so if you have interest in an IDW Nemesis styled Prime, you don't have long to jump and make sure you get one!
This Nemesis Prime also follows a trend started last year as the Attack Mode Nemesis Prime was also exclusive to a convention last year, in that case the New York Comic Con.
Let us know what you think of this kit below, and tell us how much you are enjoying the Furai model kits as a whole as well!

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!

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

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.

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

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 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.

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.
