Via Flame Toys Twitter and Hobby Dengeki we have our first look a the color prototype of Flame Toys Kuro Kara Kuri God Power Jet Armor which was on display at Wonder Festival 2023 in Japan.
This is kind of a unique release in the high quality Kuro Kara Kuri line. Even since we saw the first sketches, we knew this was not going to be a figure but a complete set of extra parts to be combined with Kuro Kara Kuri Optimus Prime into a highly stylized ROTF Jetpower Optimus Prime. As we can see from the images, the combination is pretty impressive and big.
Stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates. Now click on the bar to see the mirrored image on this news post and then sound off on the 2005 Board!
I'm a little upset about how expensive these are getting. $40 alone is a transformable figure, but I'm cool with it cause these kits are fun (I think IDW prime was around $40), but soundwave is $70 and I'm assuming so is shockwave. There's a good chance I'm missing something here that is the obvious factor for these price hikes (don't say inflation or materials or economy because those only increase price by 10-15% max)
Wouldn't be a proper Shockwave if he didn't come with a tiny version of himself to play with.
36th series of [FURAI MODEL] Shockwave model Kit is presented !
[Furai Model] Shockwave pre-order starts from today !!!
Model kit size is ~160mm height and it is made by ABS & PS. It has good articulation with over 40 movable joints. With different injection color of runner parts and simple assembly design, it will be suitable for model kit beginners.

Can’t wait for Jazz to join this Autobot crew.
Pre-ordered myself a Jazz from D4Toys as he's my favourite design so far and I've always had a soft spot for Jazz. Now to forget about it until release and allow my finances to recover for a while!
He'll be turning sideways to get through doorways, passing anyone on foot, etc.
I’m getting some Randy Parker vibes from this. He may not be able to put his arms down or scratch his nose either. View attachment 29825297
DAAAAAAAMN OPTIMUS GOT A MEGA UPGRADE
The Mad Demobot
I was about to say that!
He looks like the final form of the Attack Mode Optimus Prime that was based on the Studio Trigger school of robot designs.
Also f*** it, I'm getting that armor, and slapping him on the KO Flame Toys Prime once I get my hands on him.

The gurren laggan vibes on this dude are immaculate.
I really like the look here and I understand why they have picked the characters so far… However with an anime/IDW influenced look, I can't help but yearn for a Brainstorm or Getaway.
It's not only the range of motion, but if it's like Victory Saber that thing won't be able to stand on its own once combined.
That's another thing… granted, I think it just standing there and looking cool is enough, but it'd definitely be nice if he could be posed a bit.
Range of motion: zero
….my lordeh, he good …. I love it
