Thanks to Youtuber Peaugh we have a video review for the soon to be mass released Flame Toys Furai Model Kit Attack Mode Optimus Prime! The figure, which is a roughly voyager sized in terms of height and does not transform, is a model kit very similar to Gundam models, and is heavily stylized. He comes with his trademark blaster and ax, both of which have been stylized as well. The figure is incredibly posable, with the same posability standards as the previously mentioned Gundam kits.

While the video review does not include the build itself, Peaugh does make mention of the time it took him to build, which was 3 hours, though 3 hours with interruptions, as he mentions.

Check out the video, and let us know what you think of this new model kit below!

A transformer that doesn't transform? HOW DARE THEY? but seriously this looks like a cool figure, not a fan of the design, but should be cool for those that like the... anime style? idk what to call it... but yeah, looks cool.

I think he would look quite good next to my gundams, he looks mg size in that regard though my current master grades are all from the F91 era and later, probably not the best height to judge on :lol:

Anime style is pretty accurate since it was designed by Akira Amemiya, best known for designing this:

And he is indeed a Transformers fan, here's a bit of fanart from him.

I thought I recognised the style :-) I love his art of metroplex, that really does give the impression of a behemoth.

Akira Amemiya, eh? No wonder I love the design so much. I pre-ordered this kit as soon as it was made available, and now I'm even more excited about getting my hands on it after watching the video review. There's going to be lots of posing and picture-taking, I do believe.

I have an army of transformable Optimus Primes, so the fact that this one doesn't transform doesn't bother me in the least. For me, this is 100% about the bot design, completely uninhibited by the real-world limitations of making necessary compromises to the bot mode in order to accommodate one or more alt modes, while keeping the price out of the stratosphere. If I only own one version of a particular character, then yes, the ability to transform is mandatory. In this case, however, the complete dedication to the bot mode and the focus on its poseability rather than its transformability is exactly what appeals to me.

On the non-transforming (or converting) side of toys, we have some new concept art from Flame Toys and their officially licensed Transformers model kits and action figures, specifically this time for the Devastator set. The art comes from the hands behind Gurren Lagann animated series, Transformers fan artist Akira Amemiya of Trigger animation studio.

Check out the sketches below, and let us know what you think of this display piece in its paper and ink form - will you be venturing into the new money and time consuming aspect of the hobby any time soon?

I get what you are saying but priorities also apply to savings as well, especially for us who have little income and families to provide for.

Yeah, and there's only so much money any of us can make. It's the folk with extremely well paying jobs or lottery winners that can just freely buy whatever figures and toys and statues they darn well like. :P

Money is only one of the finite resources we have, the other is space. And that's becoming a more treasured commodity with each release.

But money can buy you space. Though it requires a lot of the monies. :)

Becuase it can’t transform. Theirs party companies that are licensed from Hasbro aren’t allowed to transform. That’s why they’re making them look so stylized

Man, I HATE comments like this. As if it's that easy and clear cut. What if I can't budget for a Titan unless I stop buying three Leaders that I also want equally, now what? Stop buying the things you want to buy this other thing you want, what a childish way to look at things. You're still going to want the things you didn't buy so you're missing out no matter what. If your car breaks down or your house leaks, yeah, you stop buying things you want in place of the things you need, but balancing one want against another is never as easy as you make it sound.

I cannot wait to see colored images, I love the stylization, and I'm really looking forward to all the Flame Toys stuff. There is some really neat stuff like these kits and the Victory Saber in there

Depending on the size and the pricing (as in we are currently facing £55 for a $40 RRP Optimus Prime model that I'd deem to be a $30 model max in comparison to Gundams) but definitely cool

Hope this is made available outside of NYCC. I was looking forward to it, but I don't want to pay aftermarket prices for it.
