Thanks to a post from the Flame Toys Twitter page, we have news that another new image of the upcoming Kuro Kara Kuri IDW Stealth Bomber Megatron has been shared and the pre-orders will be hitting next week!

The IDW Stealth Bomber Megatron is the next in the line of Kuro Kara Kuri highly posable and detailed action figures, following the likes of Optimus Prime, Star Saber, and Drift. He is heavily based on the IDW Stealth Bomber Megatron design from back in the 2009-2011 ongoing, but with some additional stylings and a more spiky appearance. He will likely retail for around $450, which is approximately what the other Kuro Kara Kuri figures have gone for. Pre-Orders are expected to go up on March 16, next Monday.

Check out the image below, and stay tuned for the pre-order announcements!

Yeah..but this is not a statue.

highly posable and detailed action figures


...and these are awesome. I really don't care if these won't transform, specially since these current transforming official mp-toys are just a pain to transform. That's not even fun anymore. Many (not all) 3p companies do it better what comes to the transformation (and sadly, the quality), but these Flame toys figures have superb level of details in the bot mode...frankly the mode that most of us keep them anyways. Not to mention great articulation and poseability.

Also the fact that because they don't have to transform, they can create the robot they want without any restrictions.

Man, Stealth Bomber IDW Megatron was such an amazing. It deserved a Voyager or Leader-class figure, not some ridiculously tiny and flimsy deluxe.

Well, there were a lot more Deluxe slots than there were Voyager slots, and Jetfire claimed the Leader slot - which was the first Leader slot we ever had in CHUG (previously we'd never gone above Ultra and most of what we had was Deluxes and occasional Voyagers). There's also the fact that a Deluxe lends itself better to repaint milking, of course.
They could have done a Leader version in Combiner Wars, but I'm guessing it was no longer anywhere near current (and Hasbro probably wanted to go with what they saw as the surer bet, a more traditional G1 Megs).

Well, 3P got that covered.
But it would have been nice to see a an official leader.

I get the reasoning I'm just saying its an excellent design (both as a character design and basic toy transformation scheme) and its a shame Hasbro will probably never touch it again.

I don't know about that.
Never say never.

Actually, Hasbro probably never SHOULD touch it again, and the molds for the time they did should be destroyed. Similarly, this kit should be canceled and destroyed. That or receive an enormous price hike to compensate Don Figeueroa not only for this use of the design but also for Andy Schmidt stealing the design and Hasbro making it into a toy without credit or compensation.

Why would they have to do either of those things? Hasbro clearly own the design so they can do what ever they want with it.

Because the design was created by Don Figueroa. Andy Schmidt said he wanted to work out a deal with Don to use it, but then stood Don up and used the design in The Transformers #13 with no compensation or credit given to Don. Hasbro then compounded the art theft by making it into a toy - also without giving compensation or credit to Don.

Considering the time frame and the fact that the toy has been used three times (two Megatrons and a dreadwind) I'm going to guess that whatever legal battle (if pushed) was settled, hence why hasbro is allowing this. Also of consideration was Don working in any capacity for Hasbro at the time? They may have decided that the design already belonged to them (and if Don had signed a contract, then there is good chance that clause may have been in there). Obviously, if he wasn't then ignore that part.

Rubbish business practices? If course but it's par for the course these days in capitalism, and that's something that sending a letter to hasbro isn't going to fix as only a minority will ever care.

But do you know who might care, if they're aware of the issue? Fans. Which is why I brought it up here. After all, unless a buyout happened that I don't know about I'm pretty sure that Seibertron is a fan forum, not a Hasbro comment box :P

But do fans care? It's been almost ten years since megs debuted that form, that's been more then enough time for them to deal legal issues.
Actually I did some digging, this is a very interesting thread to read as it was discussed here before, many moons ago.
Here's the thread

One thing for sure.

I don't care for petty legal battles of any kind from whoever. And I'm pretty sure I'm in the majority.

I'm pretty much in this boat too. If this was the original toy and time, i would care a bit more, but it has been so long now, I don't.

Also, got 5 new kits to build, and I'm going to start with Megatron and Devastator, and then go for SG Prime, Drift, and finally Skywarp

I'm actually torn on whether to get Skywarp or Thundercraker. I have no need or desire to get both, I'm just unsure on which I'd prefer more.
