Mechaform MF-01 SkyGuardian Reveal Details and Images for Not Skyfire Figure Project

Mechaform dropped by our forums to let us know about their new Mechaform SkyGuardian third party project that is a homage to the G1 Skyfire character. The project is just coming together with the new design and website, but they have shared a new image with us showcasing the figure in color and some of the details. The toy that is still being worked on based on feedback from the fans. Check out the message from Mechaform and the new image below now.

First things first I would like to say hello to everyone.I am the owner of a new company called Mechaform. We are going to various websites around the net to let people know we will be making transforming related robots. We want to be very interactive with the fans because its important fellow collectors guide us in the process since they are they ones buying so it only makes sense.

I have included a attachment of our first project SkyGuardian that was first shown a few weeks back at TFCon but we had not officially announced our company name until now Mechaform.We really hope fans can help guide us by posting feedback in threads or even direct PM and most of all emails once our website mechaform.com is set up. You can also reach us on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/mecha.form.

We have already made changes since our first showing based off feedback read so let us know what you think.We are going to try and be available as much as possible on various forums and other forms of media to serve your needs.Cheers!

Loving what's been done so far but that face... I think Guardian should have a younger or smother looking face and are you guys also thinking of a helmet or an attachable faceplate and visors? What kind of hidden weapons are going to come with this guy? Wouldn't change a thing about the body or wings. He looks as close to perfect as can be imagined!

I have to say I am very impressed that you were able to make SkyGuardian very show accurate to his television counterpart. Although, I don't not mean to sound negative about him, but if I had to pick two minor negative things about him, one of which is that his wings should be a little shorter and a little but wider. ( Also in robot mode, they should be at a 45 degree angel. ) The second thing I'm a little concerned about is that the gray piece that attaches the legs to his torso. It's look a little fragile. That's all.

But regardless, this is still an amazing figure, and a great start to your new company. SkyGuardian looks amazing, he looks very poseable, the plastic quality looks very high quality and durable ( aside of what I said earlier ) and he would scale well with Hasbro/Takara MP figures.

My only question I have about SkyGuardian is does he have any way to show his massive scale in vehicle mode, considering that he was used as transportation. An example would be like having some kind of cargo door that can open up on the side, or even something as simple as a sticker of a window with a few characters looking out of it. I mean, it is a minor thing, but it would be a nice touch if added. :)

Thank you for reading. That is all.

Thanks for your reply and feedback.There is no need to worry about anything being fragile ;) and the cargo door idea is very nice even if a sticker as you suggested.

Wow!!! I'm impressed!!! If you keep with that type of thinking, you'll be successful. A lot of the other third party companies started off good, then they just started putting out stuff that seemed like good ideas, but were executed wrong. Had they asked fans, they would have been better. One example are the Tetra Jets from another certain company.

We understand fans views are always changing so its important we know what people want and the best way is to just ask.I cant speak for any other company but we will always do our best to listen :)

Okay, I'm interested. Considering size comparison, are we looking at 100+ dollars?

Thanks foe the comments we are trying to sort out all the details so we will have more updates soon :)
