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

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:

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.

While I do have a sport reserved for one in my display case... I have to assume that Sentinel is more likely to milk the existing mold for a couple Dark (Shadow) toys first, before investing in a 100% new item.

I know this is not a good time to share this, but I leave it here anyway.

It is the model I was working on a few days ago.

(WIP-LowPoly for now)

Enjoy!

This is really great work. Nice job so far!

What are you using for references for it? I've been toying with the idea of doing this myself, in SolidWorks, but there are barely any concept art pics for this (which might be one it didn't look too consistent frame to frame in the animation).

I used the last artbook of mospeada

this: there are some line arts of the rain boy bike (Dusty Ayres)

The one book (I believe) that I'm still waiting on.

Thank you for the info!

Thanks for all the links. And here comes the preorder...

Agreed that the headsculpt looks a little off. A slight change would be nice - but heck, its definitely not going to turn me away. Whats strange is that the helmeted face sculpt looksa little different and better to me, but it could just be the angle.

Completed with HLJ. I could wait for my Iota legioss (which looks like it is *finally* making it to BBTS) but I'll want this as soon as it rolls out.

Did you get a 10 day arrival notice from them? I was going to order one from Japan but their price might be cheaper than importing.
