Mach 5 Toys Announces M5-01 Gauntlet – 3rd Party Fistitron

This comes as no surprise to you guys, but I freakin’ love Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers. So, needless to say, any product that draws inspiration from Nick Roche’s artwork (like Generations Springer) has my instant attention.

So I’m very excited to bring your attention to 3rd-Party newcomer Mach 5’s announcement of their original Ironfist figure via Facebook:

I’m liking what I see already.  I love supporting the new guys, but I have been burned before. Luckily, Mach 5 appears to be very in-tune with the fans, keeping them updated on their progress, like these test-shots they posted today:

A little rough looking here and there, but it is early in production, and I appreciate their willingness to keep us in the loop.  As it sits right now, he’s planned to come in around 5″ tall or so (making him a short, but stout, deluxe), and they’re aiming to keep him under $50.

Also, they’ve got a Crankcase planned! Bah!

We’ll keep you updated, but make sure to drop by their page if you’re Facebook savvy — they’re very enthusiastic about getting feedback!

  1. Before i actually saw this photo back on the homepage news page i thought it was a Back to the Future movie logo or something, i know it’s crazy!

  2. The BTTF theme has nothing to do with the figure, it’s just what Mach 5 is using for their company logo from what I can tell. Maybe we’ll see stuff that’s more “retro” in theme from them soon.

  3. Wait, so what’s with the Back to the Future theme of that pic? Is there something I’m missing?
