RIOBOT 1/12 VR-038L Bartley Fouquet
Pre-order starts 11/8!
With the cooperation of Mr. Shinji Aramaki who was involved as a mechanic designer in the original animation
Clear parts for headlights, etc.
We are particular about the materials, such as using die-cast parts for the frame part.
The bazooka can be mounted on the cowling.
The articulation of the riding suit is designed to have wide range, so that the riding style looks natural.
The armored motorcycle is proportioned perfectly to the riding suit so there's sense of outstanding perfect fit when in ride armor mode.
Keiichiro Maeno (T-REX) is in charge of the design as before .
The complicated mechanism can be completely transformed without parts swapping, and it is brilliantly reduced to 1/12 scale.
The riding suit feature flows below the knee when worn.
Compactly folded turn signal parts, etc.
The details have been devised so as not to spoil the silhouette.
The thruster unit with transformed wheel parts achieves the nozzle shape.
A stand is also included, so you can enjoy a stable display even in the ride armor mode.
The Bartley and Fouquet are long-awaited items by the fans.
Finally, to be able to be displayed side by side with the previous releases.
Please enjoy the world of "Armored Genesis Mospeada"!

I wonder if they're going to rework the face? Especially the eyes. It doesn't look like Fuke to me.

Also, notice that they inverted the foot pedal. This time around, the figure seating form will look better without the feet extending towards the rear like the previous 3 riders.

I really like the color but i am not a big fan of the sculpt of the face. That's ok though, i am sure in the end it will be a great product and finally i will complete my mospeada team...one question though, i can't remember anymore how do pre-orders with sentinel work? Am i going to have more than 5 seconds to get my order in or is it going to be like a Bandai DX kind of thing?

No, it's not going to be like Bandai's. But I advise to put your PO the moment it goes up (on the PO day) rather than wait the next day or two. ;) 

Same here also. Not a big fan of the face. They really need to tweak it before release. :rolleyes:

Here's some references:

Thank you! That's a  relief. I would have been really sorry to have missed this one since i already own the other three and really want to complete my team. It was on my bucket list since i saw Mospeada for the first time when i was a kid.

You're welcome. But do remember that this one is the most anticipated one so try not to miss to PO on Monday (JPN Time). :good:

Oh, you sexy bitch! :yahoo:

Finally gonna complete the set!

Yeah, I agree with everyone here:  kinda wish the eyes were more “doe-like.”  But the color of the armor and the bike is spot-on.

I doubt sentinel would tweak it much...whole thing looks quite finished? 

otherwise...*Looks for ...how to perform plastic surgery on toy figure's... thread.*

can we preorder in all webpage?

I mean in the most usual stores...

anyone knows?

There will be multiple stores to pre-order from. Any place that has carried the Sentinel/Riobot line before, especially the ride armors, should also get a pre-order for Fuke/Bartley. I’m in, but I don’t know if I want to stay up into the wee hours to place an order. I can wait.

I doubt it will change, like it or not it is consistent with the art design on the previous three. 

That being said this looks amazing!

It's so weird:  I look at the Houquet pics on my iPhone, they look like the nice cherry red I used to custom painted the figure that came with the Zeta.

I look at the exact same pics on my laptop, and they look like they lean more towards a pinkish red.  Not the day-glow pink of the Zeta figure, but definitely leaning more towards the pinkish-red side.

Like I said. . . weird.

A few other things I noticed, it looks like Houquet's upper arms and chest won't be covered in fabric like the boys:

fuke_o0620096515019154597.jpg

Despite the nit-picks, I am glad that Sentinel is finally completing the set and looks to have nailed more right (than wrong) on this iteration.

 

. . . . . So, is it too early to speculate about a TREAD prototype? (OUR DEMANDS NEVER END! 🤪)

 

EDIT:  Looks like the legs extend for armor mode, except they'll extend above the ankles for Houquet instead of extending below the knees (like with the boys).  . . . And no mud guard or the WWII invasion stripes on the hips like they did on that announcement drawing many years ago.
