What started off as a garage kit custom has transformed into full fledge production and more.

No more painting and assembling. Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime by Griffith is now going to be offered to the general public. The newly created company MMC will be releasing custom Transformers toys, starting with "HOS Commander"

Griffith posted the following message on his site: http://griffith-monolog.blogspot.com/

I have recently been corresponding to a couple of like-minded investors and guys experienced in the processes of toy manufacturing and we've decided to form a team to put HOS01 into production and possibly other projects.

Master Mind Creation (MMC)'s goal is to create custom toys based on familiar TF characters that are never made into actual toys as well as original robot designs. And of course the first project announced is HOS01.

There will be a number of improvements and changes to be made to the original design especially in the joints. The actual price is unconfirmed at the moment. More details will be announced here as well as in the MMC blog.

A note to folks who ordered the resin version:
I have been advising potential buyers of the HOS01 kit since the group has been discussing on the project. The kits will continue to be available to those who are willing to support this version and I will still be continuing the series in resin as it there it cannot be confirmed that all my designs can be mass produced.

If you have any specific queries do email me at griffith76@gmail.com I will try to ship out all confirmed orders by the end of March. A big Thank You to those who have supported this project and those who will continue supporting.

Griffith has mentioned on his website that he is interested in producing other Hearts of Steel characters. There is also a Cybertronian form of Bumblebee on his blog. Could these be future figures for the newly formed company?

HOS Optimus Prime is a must have and so is that Cybertron Bumblebee.

:APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: Congratulations to you Mastermind Creations and congratulations to all us fans for getting another devoted company willing to do what HasTakTomTurkey won't do for us. I think your designs for HOS OP and Cyb BB are amazing and look like the quality will match the aesthetic level so let me go ahead and say you shall have a loyal buyer. Now, how about HOS Octane, Starscream, Shockwave, Ravage & Rumble. And a proper War Within Grimlock. =P~ I now believe that you have the power, you have the technology, you can make him BETTER!! 8-}

This is GREAT news!! I really like the HOS look. I really hope they turn out looking fantastic. I want shiny metal if possible :)

Good luck to everyone involved in these things, if you make a good job of it you will have a lot of very happy people looking to you for more and more!

Another example of where Hasbro is failing collectors.

That Bumblebee figure looks promising but needs some retooling, way too much kibble on it in botmode.

That Bumblebee reminds me of the HTM-01 Bumblebee I sold last summer.

Hopefully mass production won't affect the quality of this fig...it's a beautiful figure and a great take on Prime. THe Bumblebee fig is pretty cool, but I'll wait for the finished product for that one...

I just looked into my future and saw the day when I partied in the street because the fandom, as a whole, took the Transformers franchise from Has/Tak/Tom and made it their own, forcing the end of the 'TF7-Revenge of the Former King of Action Figures from the Void of Mediocre Repaints and Sculpts Caused by the Ramblings of a Mad Bayenstein' toy line for renaming Wheeljack Carjack to better suit his inaction figure alt mode.*

*Greatest Run-on Sentence Ever... I'm Biased.
